Easy iTunes purchase.
The band is Local Natives.
I like not knowing something I know I’m going to like.
I hope I take as much from life when I’m 50 as Jodie Foster seems to have. If you thought her speech was confusing at first (as did I) that’s because we’re not used to hearing people - interesting, free thinking people - speak in the rhythm of their own inner metronome. That was inspiring.
Please, writers of self-help/pop-psych/health books, stop it with the hunter/gatherer chapters. The hunter/gatherer chapter usually follows a hugely compelling intro within which you tease your five main secrets to a living a richer life, and it’s a total buzz kill. Nobody will be mad at you if your book is 80 pages long, especially if it means skipping a lazy, haughty explanation that the reason we do what we do is because at one point we needed to as a method of survival. Just lay out your points, explain them, and let me get back to this day you keep telling me I should seize.
No more hunter/gatherer chapters.
If you’re looking for a great mellow jazz record, LOOK NO FURTHER than Pat Martino’s “We’ll Be Together Again.” Just a guitar and a Fender Rhodes. Sounds like what you’d hear if you walked into a jazz club in Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood in 1976. Dig it.
Sometimes I feel like iTunes U is one big social experiment to see how people respond to having a completely free college education provided to them.
