Five things #6 / by Ross Farley

Here are the five things I thought were worth sharing this week: 

  1. I don't think you need to be a drummer to appreciate how good this solo by JP Bouvet is. It's got a bit of everything and it's only a minute long — Oh, and it's in 7/8 in case you didn't notice! It's from the album Bubble & Squeak by Mike Linden, which is well worth a listen.

  2. I've been really enjoying The Kills new album Ash & Ice. The first track is particularly cool, as is it's video.

  3. Are we living in a computer simulation? Elon Musk thinks we might be! Crazy thought experiments like that are fun to consider, but even if we are in a simulation does it even matter?

  4. I love this quote from this article on fixed vs growth mindset by Hazel Gale — “take yourself less seriously because your imperfections are the things that people really connect with. Learn to laugh at yourself and enjoy the fact that others can do the same.”

  5. I've been making a conscious effort during the last few weeks to spend less time mindlessly browsing social networks and more time on my projects. This little app has been a great help to me — it allows you to block access to any website for a period of time that you choose. So bye bye Facebook for 3 hours, hello getting some work done!

That's all for this week. If you liked this, check out my previous Five Things posts or sign up to receive future posts straight to your inbox. Enjoy!
