I didn't realize the shark was CG. One less hour of my life to spend on TV, I guess.

The Strokes' "Last Nite" is the only song I've found that I sound decent singing. Once you've had enough to drink, the Julian Casablancas impression comes naturally.

A lot of the article seems to take the tone that we definitely know for sure this time, even though we thought we definitely knew for sure before.

I really haven't seen the spam that's got you so riled up. Care to share a few examples?

There's definitely a basis for criticising cultural appropriation in situations like what you're describing. I think the real problem with appropriation arises when ignorance comes into it. White people making burritos is fine, wearing a ceremonial Native American headdress to Coachella, simply because it looks cool, isn't.

Overwhelmingly, I get the impression that the definition of cultural appropriation is "cultural exchange that I don't like".

I found that first photo of the penguins very striking. It really gives you a sense of both the incredible beauty and the daunting conditions that Ballesta describes. Those penguins look so small and fragile.

I'll second Com Truise. He's got a really great atmospheric sound that I don`t hear in a lot of other synthwave music.

It never occurred to me to take notes on anything I'm reading for pleasure, but lately I've been thinking maybe I should. At least for non-fiction. I'm reading Gifts of the Crow at the moment and finding the neuroscience a little difficult to retain. Just the act of writing something down seems to help, even if I don't spend much reviewing.

It took a few days for me to get into it, but Arcade Fire - Everything Now has really grown on me.

I found this series of videos on samples in popular songs, which led me down a rabbit hole that eventually led to discovering Breakwater - Release the Beast. It was heavily sampled by Daft Punk for Robot Rock, but I really think Release the Beast is a far superior song.

    Luft believes the results disrupt the notion of creativity, pointing out that the negative stimulation would not boost efforts in cases where individuals need to keep track of a number of different things at the same time. “It would be beneficial to think ‘what exactly do I need to be creative on this task’ rather than how to improve creativity in general,” she said.

I think this is one of the most important points of the results. Creative thinking and creative work are two different things, and this study does a good job of reminding us of the role that both reasoning and creative thinking play in creative work. Shutting off part of your brain can be great for solving individual tricky problems, but it's tough to take your ideas anywhere without that more logical, rule-following side.

Funny, I was about to say The Doors are underrated. It seems like popular opinion has really turned against them in the last few years.
