Consumed the month of July (and a bit of August), 2019

View this post on Instagram Dance yourself clean. #despacio #2manydjs #southbank #london A post shared by Oliver Müller (@muller4448) on Aug 10, 2019 at 7:00pm PDT I took a month off updating the blog. I didn’t really mean to, but a trip up to Manchester for a friend’s 40th, plus a trip to Spain to […]

Consumed the week of 8 July, 2019

Loads to get through this week so let’s dive right in… That video above is from the YouTube channel Veratisium and it goes into brilliant detail about how YouTube works. Fascinating stuff. Coincidentally, the sam day I watched that, I also listened to the most recent episode of Reply All, which also looks at YouTube’s […]

Consumed the week of 1 July, 2019

Very short update this week, mainly because for half of the week I was residing in the ‘shepherd’s hut’ pictured above, in the middle of the Surrey Hills. I rode the 30 or so miles to get there on my bike, and spent my time walking around the area, eating bread and cheese and drinking […]

Above, the trailer for Jay Myself, a documentary about the photographer Jay Maisel and specifically his move out of his 35,000 square-foot, 100-year-old landmark building in Manhattan. I will eat this up with a giant spoon. My recommended long read this week is the same long read everyone else has been linking to this week: […]

Consumed the week of 17 June, 2019

I read two books this week, thank mainly to one of those books being very short. As well as being very short, The Parakeeting of London is very entertaining and fun. In it gonzo ornithologists Nick Hunt and Tim Mitchell “track the progress of the parakeets from park to cemetery to riverbank, meeting Londoners from […]

Above, a video which should probably be titles ‘Idiot interviewers ask idiot questions to Debbie Harry’. I’d like to think these kind of interrogations are a thing of the past… but I doubt it. I haven’t read many articles this week, but I have read two books. I finished The Heavens by Sandra Newman (“From […]

Consumed the week of 27 May and 3 June, 2019

Missed last week because I was away on holiday (in Turkey – here’s my favourite fact about Turkey) celebrating my birthday. Safely back in SE London now, and this is going to be a quick one because I’m tired and there’s plenty of TV to catch up on. Above: Something that the YouTube algorithm pushed […]

Consumed the week of 20 May, 2019

Late this week, because it was a bank holiday and it was a busy…ish one. On Friday I went to All Points East over in Victoria Park to see (among others) Chemical Brothers (above), Hot Chip, Peggy Gou, and Maurice Fulton. It was very good, so good that I had to spend most of Saturday […]

Consumed the week of 13 May, 2019

I haven’t done an awful lot of reading this week. To be fair, I haven’t done an awful lot of reading this year. Definitely not compared to last year. I have been listening to a lot more music however. I spent a bit of money getting myself a new turntable, amp and speakers earlier this […]

Consumed the week of 6 May, 2019

Above: an interesting 20 minute documentary about Subvertisers for London, found via the brilliant Spelling Mistakes Cost Lives. The other video which really stayed with me this week (and may have made me cry a little bit), is How Autism Feels, From the Inside from the NY Times: A couple of ‘How…’ articles this week. […]
