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. Hether: ‘Sticky Fingers’ is lo-fi and beachy indie rock to kick back to – hazy, shimmering vocals over laid back guitar.
    2. Hidden Orchestra: ‘We Are from the Sun’ is a remarkable poetry record – 10 diverse UK poets reading to shape-shifting instrumentals.
    3. Parrenin / Weinrich: ‘Jours De Grève’ is a groovy downtempo record – a bouquet of music full of mirrors, eyes, blood, statues and secrets.
  2. Street art: Nice multimedia film about street artist David Zinn (3 mins) 
  3. Crisps: Great reflection on the world today and the joy of eating potato chips.
  4. Trash: Neat short film about a pandemic trash strike entrepreneur (7 mins)
  5. Chill: Good article on the booming business of ‘relaxation drinks.’
  6. Accents: Linguistic dialect experts give a tour of American accents (21 mins) 
  7. Insults: Good riddance, but Trump had a great vocabulary for Twitter insults.
  8. Typography: A smart review of some of the best fonts created in 2020.
  9. Skimming: The science and technique behind expert stone skimming (3 mins).
  10. Illustration: Nicholas Moegly creates fabulously atmospheric scenes. 
  11. Reality: Lovely animation for TedxSydney featuring Alan Watts (3 mins). 
  12. Painting: Darian Mederos paints portraits abstracted through bubble wrap.
  13. Seaside: A nice short directed by singer-songwriter Arlo Parks and set by the quintessentially British seaside in Margate (3 mins)
  14. Peanut butter: A brief history of peanut butter, a spreadable obsession.
In case you missed it – the most popular link last time was this film showcasing talented female longboard dancers in Brazil (7 mins)
Link Me Up Scotty is a labor of love. So if you also love getting it, please spread the love by sharing with other like-minded people or posting on social media using this link.
