Content for Consumption.

My father, a man approaching 70 years of age, told me about his recent explorations in pop music. This included an extended analysis of Macklemore’s Can’t Hold Us and commentary about why youth in Taiwan like Justin Bieber. However, I currently lack the creativity to craft a pithy post about that.[1. What I lack in creativity I make up for in alliteration.]

Since I am having difficulties generating content, let me at least provide some other content for consumption:

Manifesto of a Doer. It is reminiscent of Ze Frank’s Invocation for Beginnings, though without the profanity and… artistry.

Life in a Tiny Apartment. This is a collection of posts about making the most of and staying organized in small living spaces. She and I do not share the same aesthetic, though I do like her principles.

You To Still Die One Day. Because death is the Great Equalizer, puts everything in perspective, and “you are still going to die one day and there is nothing you can do to prevent it.”

Marmot Sings Mozart’s Queen of the Night Aria. No matter what my mood may be, watching this marmot sing an aria makes me laugh out loud.[2. Biggie Smalls feat. Thomas the Tank Engine also makes me laugh, but it is not safe for work or children.]
