Five Things #135

Every Tuesday I share five things I've liked and think you might like too. Here are this week’s Five Things…

  1. I went on a bit of a NPR Tiny Desk Concert binge last week, the highlight was this performance by Thundercat. He's a beast of a bass player!

  2. So I've definitely been saying this wrong my whole life: If you’ve got ‘another thing coming’, you’ve got another think coming

  3. “If the timeline of Earth were mapped onto the human arm, it would begin around the shoulder where the earth formed about 4.6 billion years ago. Animals originated within the palm, but the myriad forms alive today exploded onto the scene around the first knuckle...” And where does humanity make an appearance? The tip of the fingertip of the index finger! There's a great diagram of this near the top of the article.

  4. I love Liz Climo's cartoons. This one is a new favourite. I love the accompanying quote from Martin Luther King Jr. too: “If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way.”

  5. A fun music fact for you: “according to MBW research, the average number of credited songwriters in the US market’s Top 10 streaming hits of 2018, per-track, was a surprisingly high 9.1” - and that's the average! 🤯
