Little Bits Of Light
It’s damn near the start over, isn’t it? That time of year where everyone starts heading back to school, Autumn seems to be peeking out from behind the corners of the evening. Perhaps only then, as things have been so hot, but still, the promise of a slight chill is there, and it’s exciting. To celebrate, let’s have some links!
Fortune says, for a lifetime of great Autumnal luck, all you have to do is join our rad community. IT’S THAT EASY! Here’s how:
Here’s the scoop, kids:
Goats That Fit In Your Palm - This is why the internet was made. Forget all the high-brow, intellectual nonsense. It’s for goats that fit in the palm of your hand, and just about nothing else. This video should cheer you up, even if you’re not needing cheering. What the hell else can we do, but enjoy?
How To Stay Healthy Longer - Look, if we’re gonna make it through the mess that is this climate, this political scene, this inflation, this divide, this, well, fill in the blank, we’re gonna need to be healthy, and we’re gonna need to stay that way longer and longer. Good news, I found an article that has some great tips on how to do precisely that. It hits the major areas, heart, brain, guts, etc, and gives you some actual concrete tips on what to do, look out for, and fix. Rad.
Sun Bleached Flies (live) by Ethel Cain - Just holy shit. She can sing, and sing, and sing, and my goodness, I’ll listen. What power, what restraint, what unique talent. Not sure if you’ll dig this, but I sure as f do.
The Worst of Zillow - Who doesn’t like browsing Zillow listings just to find the most shocking, the most absurd, the most ghastly? Who?! I don’t trust you. I think you still do. Here are a handful of the
bestworst Zillow has to offer. Personal favorite, the house with its own jail. Rad.
Embracing Discomfort - What if I told you that one of the keys to a meaningful life, was to actual embrace more discomfort? I don’t necessarily mean physical pain, I mean more situations, more interactions, more fear, more challenge? Turns out, one of the absolute best ways to carve out a more meaningful existence on this crazy planet, is to embrace discomfort, and lean into it, rather than run away from it. This article is amazing at explaining why, and how to do so.
Skinny Love by Bon Iver - We were fortunate enough to go to the Bon Iver show at the Kettlehouse Amphitheater outside of Missoula on Tuesday, and when he performed this song, I cried. I remember finding this song YEARS ago, loving it, and to hear it live with that much emotion on a dark, almost chilly August night under the stars, was special. Just special.
Typewriter Series Silliness - More me, reading more poems, for you.Tiktok failed to load.
