Any Given Sunday

A sporadic letter of listening, reading, and watching suggestions.

The end of the f***ing world. If you’re British, you’ll have seen this a long time ago. If you aren’t British lucky you, watch it now. Two kids; Jessica Barden (Alyssa) and Alex Lawther (James) go on a rampage across the Isle of Sheppey to find Alyssa’s father.
If you have had the misfortune of speaking to me in the last week, I’ll have bored you about After Life. Ricky Gervais’ new show. I love it. It’s rude, it’s harsh, it’s inappropriate - it’s Ricky. And he’s dealing with…himself and suicide. Dark but also light.
Still, to this day it amazes me that there are no decent musical experiences on Netflix. They’ll wise up. Until they do, you should purchase this collection from PBS. Soundbreaking; Stories from the cutting edge of recorded music. (If you don’t want to watch them all just watch episode 4; Going Electric.) This is a perfect Sunday viewing.
In a collaboration between The University of the Underground and Collecteurs we have a pretty unique collection of X-Ray records available for sale. All proceeds go to supporting the University.
Warning: If you do buy a limited edition X-Ray of Massive Attack it self destructs after 10-15 plays - seriously.
The fact that you got to this article and are prepared to click on this link says it all. Email is your social media. Discovering things from your inbox is easy, so long as your inbox is well managed….
….If your inbox isn’t well managed and you spend more than 3 hours a day on the email, you should use SuperHuman. I can unsubscribe from anything in 2 keystrokes. That’s worth it.
I work in the tech industry and probably as a result have become tech-shy. Not a lot of tech really turns me on anymore.
Mapify on the other hand. Wow.
You want to spend 10 days in Greece. Add your dates and, it automagically offers you a complete 10-day itinerary, soon pulling from all over the web (Air BNB, Booking, Uber you name it).
It’s ingenious. It’s beautiful. Most importantly it adds to your life.
Noble Rot is my favourite magazine in the world. The size, the design, the identity, the breadth, and the edge make it a treat to receive. No other way to describe it, I pay for it, yet it’s still a gift.
In this months copy they manage to combine micro dosing on LSD (Winos on Acid) Jancis Robinson and curry. 🎤
(if you don’t drink wine you might not like it)
