Consumed the week of 16 April, 2018

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.

A few weeks ago I linked to the Worst Roommate Ever article in New York magazine. Now it seems the story is being made into a movie (dramatisation) and TV series (documentary).

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.
