Five Things #136

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

  1. I really enjoyed this conversation between Malcolm Gladwell and legendary producer, Rick Rubin. I learned that Rick Rubin produced my favourite Johnny Cash song, Hurt. I also learned that it's actually a cover of a Nine Inch Nails song — I much prefer Johnny Cash's version. As Malcolm Gladwell says in the podcast, it's amazing how a song can take on a whole new life and personality when performed by another person.

  2. A brie-lliant (sorry) look at the history of cheese.

  3. I read this post by Derek Sivers this morning. I love his idea of keeping a "thoughts on" journal, which is like a daily journal but on a specific topic. Such a great way of recording your thoughts on a subject and seeing how they evolve over time. I'm definitely borrowing this!

  4. An interesting piece reviewing The Birth Of Loud. I haven't read the book yet but the review itself is worth reading. It has a great title too: The Feud That Birthed the Electric Guitar

  5. It's been a good week for new music. Nils Frahm has released a new EP, Encores 2. And Josin has released a new album, In The Blank Space. Both have got a lot of play this week!

That's all for this week. If you enjoyed it, subscribe and you'll get the next one delivered to your inbox.
