Five Things #96 / by Ross Farley

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

  1. What makes the music for the Mario games sound so fun? 8-bit Music Theory explains...

  2. This piece is fantastic. I love this bit in particular: “While working ... I suddenly heard a noise and looked up to find Robert Hughes, the art critic of Time magazine, staring at me in disbelief. ‘But you’re Philip Glass! What are you doing here?’ It was obvious that I was installing his dishwasher and I told him that I would soon be finished. ‘But you are an artist,’ he protested. I explained that I was an artist but that I was sometimes a plumber as well and that he should go away and let me finish.”

  3. I hope they never grow up! A game of tag that’s been going for 20+ years.

  4. The behind-the-scenes video of Spike Jonze's HomePod advert is well worth a watch. I totally agree with this: "It’s a delight, in the end, that the magicians decided to reveal their tricks like this—a worthy companion piece to one of the year’s most enchanting productions."

  5. 🎶 Sirimiri — More ambient goodness from the prolific Rafael Anton Irisarri.
