Little Bits Of Light
Where the F did January go? It’s almost done, and that’s weird, as it feels like I don’t even really remember it happening at all. Strange how time moves, strange how we process it. Anyway, on to the links darlings.
Holy crap, we’re chatting up a storm over on the Substack app, so if you’re looking for an excuse to hop behind the little paywall, that’s a damn fine one. Plus, we’re cooking up the LIVE video hangouts too. Coming soon. Join us:
Here’s some cool crud I found over the last few bits:
Qualities of Good Friendships - I don’t know if you’re like me, but I don’t have a ton of friendships. I’m more of a “2 quarters instead of 50 pennies” kinda guy. I love hard, I love deep, and I prefer quality over quantity. This article is how to make sure the friends you have, are the friends worth having, and how to be a better one yourself. We all need that.
5 Great Books, 5 Life Lessons - Great literature has the power to teach us lessons that stick long after the pages have been flipped and the book closed. The BEST books teach us of life in a way we didn’t see coming. Here are 5 rad lessons from 5 rad books. Dig it.
Garbage Pail Kids, A History - If you’re anywhere near my age, or were alive during the 80s and 90s, this one will strike a big fat grungy guitar chord of nostalgia. I loved the Garbage Pail Kids, and reading through this was amazing. Did you have a favorite?
15 Weird Ass Words - I love weird words, and I’m obdurate (see what I did there) that this is a good personality trait. Here are 15 words that you may have heard of, may not have, but either way, deserve to read and enjoy. For me, it’s hard to top Tintinnabulation.
Last of Us - I never played many video games, but I did play the entire Uncharted Series, as well as Last of Us when it was released. I was psyched when I heard they were making a show out of Last of Us, and even MORE psyched when I heard HBO was doing it. We watched the first episode, and mannnnnnn, I’m in.
Prolouge by Frans Bak - Holy crap, this gave my goosebumps goosebumps and I can’t stop listening to it. I first found it whilst editing photos of Scotland, and my giddy aunt, I loved it. I hope you do too.
Typewriter Series Auction! - That’s right, there’s still time on the first round of Typewriter Series poems being auctioned up. This round has all the poems I read last week as well as a few older gems. If anyone has one they really wanna see in next weeks auction, let me know. A % of all sales will go to The Young and the Brave charity. Bam. Go bid!
I hope you have the best weekend. I love you all.
