After seeing and loving A Quiet Place last week, it was great to watch this Notes on a Scene video featuring John Krasinski breaking down the Monopoly scene from the film.
This is a very useful breakdown of all the fibs, spins and slights Zuckerberg used during his 10 hours in front of the Senate.
That Spike Jonze Apple ad just keeps on giving. Now it seems FKA Twigs is stuck in a strange, alternative dimension.
I love reading about the experiences of London by people visiting from another country. So this post from Dinner, A Love Story by novelist Sonya Terjanian really charmed me: “Uber is everywhere in London, and for the insanely brave, there are lots of bike-sharing options. You should also take at least one ride in a ridiculously charming black cab, aka a Hackney.”
And who wouldn’t be charmed by Ruth ‘River Cafe’ Roger’s Grub Street Diet, which contains sentences like: “Another strong espresso, and then I was off to the airport to meet Sian Wyn Owen, my co-author and our head chef at the River Cafe, and her 10-year-old daughter Pearl. Before boarding, we stopped at the Fortnum & Mason counter at the airport for smoked salmon and scrambled eggs; I didn’t eat on the plane.”
Jason Kottke did a bang up job of collating some of the best articles and videos celebrating the 50th anniversary of Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey.
And I started reading At Lady Molly’s, the fourth instalment of A Dance to the Music of Time.
