The Five Senses
3,900 pages of Paul Klee's personal notebook are available to view online.
Haven't heard from Russell Brand in a while? He's on Youtube talking about self-improvement, addiction, recovery, and connection. Here he talks to Karamo Brown about how to be a loving man. Some shorter videos I like are how to stop obsessive thinking and Joe Rogan's interview where Brand talks to Rogan about hunting (they have very differing opinions, but respect and understand each other). 
How to start a Mexican wave. Wholesome content to warm your heart. 
Fleabag. Season 2 is out and it is one of the most incredible seasons of TV I've seen. It's sufficient, lovely, and profound. Here's the star and writer of Fleabag Phoebe Waller-Bridge answering 73 questions. I've also been listening to the Guilt and Shame podcast, which Waller-Bridge mentions in her questions interview and where she is featured. If you've already seen Fleabag, here's an in-depth video on the perspective in Fleabag
A video of Queen Victoria has been found. It's so crisp and clear that it's hard to believe it's real.

What I'm Reading

I'm reading Come West and See by Maxim Loskutoff, a strange book of stories about the west set in the past and modern times.  

This week, I read about TV's Reckoning with #METOO, which talks about Tuca and Bertie (a show I've started watching and love so far); Marin Sardy's tragic story about her brother's schizophrenia, the banality of empathy, how Keanu Reeves is too good for this world (so true), the story of Stephanie Montgomory, who was raped at a strip club and painted a billboard when no one did anything about it; five short stories by Lydia Davis, and Men Paid Me to Eat, a flash fiction story by Natalie Lima in The Offing
