The Matchbook | 11.10.23
Little Bits Of Light
Well I’ll be buggered, two weeks in a row for a late Matchbook. Not Triumphantly late, but late nonetheless, and this time, I’m blaming it on the fact that I got my Covid booster last night. Oof. Anyway, let these links be a balm to your soul, or your weary arm, should you have one.
Did you know, that one of the easiest ways to vaccinate yourself against the boredom and malaise of this crazy life, is to subscribe and join this community? It’s true, the CDC says so:
Here’s the scoop, kids:
The 15 Happiest Places To Live In The USofA - We all need a bit more happiness, right? We all wanna live somewhere where we wake and feel joy, not dread. Environment matters kids, and if you’re not happy where you’re at, here are 15 places that just do happiness better than all the rest. Maybe it’s time for a move?
Emotional Control From The Stoics - Sometimes the Stoics got things right. Other times, they really screwed the pooch and were far too rigid, far too emotional stunted, but there is truly something to be said for maintaining emotional control throughout this wild and unpredictable life. Now, we have some neuroscience and psychotherapy data to back it up. Dive in, learn how you can better your own soul, the Stoic way.
Why People Are Choosing Brown Noise - No immature fart jokes here kids, this is a different kind of brown noise, one that Lady G and I have actually been using for the last 2 years to help sleep at night. Much lower frequency than its more famous cousin White Noise, this can be more described as the low rumble you feel and hear whilst on an airplane at cruising altitude, except far more peaceful. If you’ve not yet tried it on Your smart device for sleep yet, start with a nap, then graduate to full nighttime enjoyment.
The Wonderful Story Of Henry Sugar - If it’s Wes Anderson, I’m in. I’m just in because no one pushes the boundaries of what’s current, what’s conventional, and what should be done in a film more. He’s got a style, love it or hate it, and he’s got the stones to stick to it. As a man who has written over 3000 typewriter series poems, I can absolutely say I relate. This looks fun.
2023 Bird Photographer Of The Year - I want to win this one day, I truly do, but in order to do so, I need a better zoom lens. A much, much better zoom lens. These are stunning, and well deserved. Now, more of you sign up for the paid community so I can keep the lights on hahaha. Check out this stunner:
Funny by Searows - Sounds so much like Phoebe Bridgers sometimes, which is very rad, but a sound altogether powerful and gentle and lovely.
Chasers Merch Shop! - Yep, holidays are sneaking up! Get some shopping done. Also, Calendars coming soon! Stay tuned.
I love you all. Be good.
