This week (no. 10)

📖 I recently finished Universal Harvester: A Novel by John Darnielle. The concept sounded so great I pre-ordered the book: Life in a small town takes a dark turn when mysterious footage begins appearing on VHS cassettes at the local Video Hut. The journey was great, the ending not so much. But after finishing the book I did read a half dozen reviews online and thought about the characters and stories for days to come, so maybe the book had the intended effect.1

🎧 The 20 year anniversary of Biggie Small’s death was on March 9th. This paragraph from a 22-year-old New York Times article is full of foreboding: Every time the front door of the apartment building opened, he leaped up to see who was climbing the stairs. On this day, there were a pair of black 9-millimeter Rugers under the mattress in his bedroom. I’m not paranoid to the point where — ” He paused. Yes, I am. I’m scared to death. Scared of getting my brains blown out.”2

🎥 My almost two-year-old son and I have been watching rocket launch videos. This one of the Space Shuttle launch is the best. Straight to the goods: fire, smoke, engine roar, and off to space. ∎

🎙️ My new favorite podcast3 is Bread Time. The content is great, the length is perfect (about 15 minutes), and the hosts don’t have the typical podcast voice.” ∎

🏈 My football team sucks, but my basketball team is awesome. ∎

  1. Tacitly related, Darnielle is also the lead of the Mountain Goats and he wrote a song about Jedi: The Ultimate Jedi Who Waste All the Other Jedi and Eats Their Bones.

  2. I’m pretty sure I found that article via Kottke, but can’t find the link now.

Vecka

A simple little web app to let you know what week, or vecka, it is. In Sweden, people make plans in weeks instead of months. This might seem weird to newcomers, but once you get used to it, it’s kinda smart. Weeks are short and an agile way to make plans.”
