Happy Friday people,
Here's a load of lovely links to things I found interesting and inspiring from around the internet this week – and hope you do too. Enjoy!
  1. Album streams:
    1. Nilüfer Yanya: ‘Feeling Lucky? EP’ is a great pop/R&B record – a noisy, exciting triptych of husky jams that both snarl and charm.
    2. Agnes Obel: ‘Myopia’ is ghostly, soothing chamber pop – a contemplative foggy landscape where vocals and piano smear together.
    3. Fred P: ‘Brilliant Atmospheres’ is a lush ambient record – deep, radiant soundscapes that deliver cathartic and comforting medicine for the mind.
  2. Ice: Fascinating long read about the niche yet big business of packaged ice
  3. Housemates: Charming slice-of-life drama about a young woman moving into a new apartment and trying to make friends (14 mins) 
  4. Photography: Stunning winners of the Aerial Photography Awards
  5. Skater: Remarkable documentary about a promising skateboarder who lost everything, but through grit and courage overcame adversity (11 mins)
  6. Waffle House: Love this series of photos taken out of Waffle House windows
  7. Husbands: Great comedy about husbands and Target parking lots (4 mins)
  8. PEZ: Interesting article on the history of PEZ dispensers and how they went from an anti-smoking tool to a beloved collector’s item. 
  9. Stop-motion: Amazing music video comprising 2,117 facial photos, taken over 101 days of lockdown, and stitched together as a stop-motion performance.
  10. Miniature: Joshua Smith crafts fantastically realistic small scale sculptures of city streets and urban objects.
  11. Bath: Odd film about a man’s meditative journey soaking in his bath (12 mins)
  12. Bell Ringing: Lovely essay about bell ringing, self doubt and filling silence.
  13. Chairs: Incredibly tranquil and gorgeously animated film featuring chairs as metaphors for the challenges of living with anxiety and depression (6 mins)
  14. Books: The most creative book cover designs of 2020.
  15. Wrestling: Great short film in which a man’s life takes a turn after unwittingly stumbling upon the world of underground wrestling (9 mins)
