LINK ME UP SCOTTY!

Happy Friday people,
Here's your weekly dose of things I found interesting and inspiring from around the internet. Enjoy! 
  1. Album streams:
    • Adrianne Lenker: ‘songs' & 'instrumentals’ are two gorgeous recordings – one lyrical acoustic folk, the other ambient sound collages.
    • Girlhood: ‘Girlhood’ is breezy, distinctively British electropop – sweet, soaring vocals with iPad instrumentals and gospel-tinged beats.
    • Actress: ‘Karma & Desire’ is a blissfully mellow electronic record – a brilliantly conceived, executed and sequenced sonic journey. 
  2. Lonely: Excellent dark comedic short about a lonely outcast looking for a connection, with a twist (15 mins) 
  3. Diaries: A lovely piece about diary hunters, people who trade and delight in the secret memories of strangers.
  4. Age: Neat AI web app that judges how old you look in video chats.
  5. Geoengineering: Interesting Kurgesadt video about geoengineering, extreme human interventions to save the planet. and the potential side effects (9 mins)
  6. Hedges: Excellent piece on hedges, the quintessential emblem of Britain
  7. Crying: An acting coach critiques ten crying scenes from movies (13 mins) 
  8. Harissa: Great food writing that dives into the delicious world of harissa.
  9. Satire: ‘Sassy Justice’ is an excellent new satire series from South Park's Trey Parker & Matt Stone – utilizing impressive deepfake technology (15 mins).
  10. Illusion: Aakash Nihalani’s street art playfully transforms environments, creating the illusion of 3-D geometric platforms and objects.
  11. Turbine: Excellent, surreal animation where a woman discovers that her husband’s face has been replaced by an airplane turbine (8 mins)
  12. Laundry: An existential meditation on our love hate relationship with laundry
  13. Conflict: Great acting and cinematography in this short drama about a high school senior in Brooklyn who struggles to deal with good news (8 mins)
  14. Tarot: Nice exploration of the art and the history of tarot through ten cards.
  15. Stripper: Comedic, super weird horror short about a male stripper's unusual experience on the job (7 mins)
In case you missed it – the most popular link last week was this amazing dance performed whilst balanced on a bicycle (2 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.
