7 Things This Week [#77]

A weekly list of interesting things I found on the internet, posted on Sundays. Sometimes themed, often not.

1️⃣ I fucking started two. [🔗 Kev Quirk // startafuckingblog.com]

2️⃣ This is a raw, heart-wrenching, yet uplifting story from Alena Smith about going through, well, a lot in the hope of birthing and raising kids and not dying. All while writing and directing the excellent Dickinson. [🔗 Alena Smith // nytimes.com]

3️⃣ It seems super unfair that truckers don’t get overtime pay (they’re typically paid by the mile), so things like delays, cargo loading, and inspections are all basically free labor. [🔗 David Zipper // theverge.com]

4️⃣ It makes total sense to me that what is essentially a sophisticated predictive text program nailed so many of the correct” responses to these prompts. But it’s still pretty wild. [🔗 JONAS DEGRAVE // engraved.blog]

5️⃣ Scruff the dog picked up over a thousand water bottles last year. The Good News Podcast has the details in a tight three minutes. [🔊 thegoodnewspodcast.fm]

6️⃣ Jacob Collier is officially on my shortlist of performers I want to see live. The guy is supremely talented. Just watch this short of him building a loop with like half a dozen instruments in just 60 seconds. [📺 Jacob Collier // youtube.com]

7️⃣ I will never unsee the use of Papyrus in the Avatar logo. And now you won’t either. [📺 Saturday Night Live // youtube.com] (Via Jason Kottke)
