7 Things This Week [#132]

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


1️⃣ If you, like me, are more into Superb Owls than Super Bowls then The Atlantic has you covered. Might be my favorite webpage of the year. 😁 [🔗 Alan Taylor // theatlantic.com]

2️⃣ I’m a fan of these little montages from their shows and films that Apple TV puts together around special events and holidays. This one was pretty cute for Valentine’s Day. [🔗 Apple TV // youtube.com]

3️⃣ I’ve filed away this who vs. whom rule of thumb. Can’t believe I’d never heard it before! [🔗 Mike Crittenden // critter.blog]

4️⃣ It’s so easy to lose time in Vision Pro. This might help. [🔗 @sindresorhus // mastodon.social]

5️⃣ If you’re a climber, you might be interested in the newest contender to the GriGri, the Ederid Pinch. This (long) video is a discussion of the design decisions and prototyping done over five years to bring it to market. I found it fascinating! [🔗 EDELRID // youtube.com]

6️⃣ I’ve started a 30-day yoga challenge using Yoga with Adriene’s YouTube videos (link is the playlist). So far so good. Anyone want to join me? [▶️ Yoga with Adriene // youtube.com]

7️⃣ I just got home from watching a showing of the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour here in Lake Placid, and WOW! I watch a lot of mountain sports-related video content, but I was impressed by the breadth, quality, and themes of this year’s film lineup. It wasn’t the usual suspects. You can check out some of their stuff on demand if you want a taste. [▶️ Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity // banffcentre.ca]


52 Albums Project

The Good Witch by Maisie Peters (2023) — #7/52

Get to know Maisie Peters because she’s the real deal. I first came across her music as a guest artist in season one of Trying on Apple TV+ (excellent show, by the way) and then I guess they liked her so much that she was contracted to write the entire soundtrack for season two. She’s also been an Apple Music Up Next artist, and has been putting out studio albums as well. The Good Witch is her latest one. She’s signed on by Gingerbread Man Records (headed up by Ed Sheeran) and just seems to be having the time of her life.

She’s building mastery of lyrics in a Taylor Swift-esque style, I’d say, which is a huge compliment in my books. Her music can be raw and heartbreaking one moment, and party-pop fun the next. Like I said, keep an eye on her.

Follow along on the 52 Albums Project page where I’m making some playlists for you.
