  1. “The greatest secret of a powerful memory is to bring information to life with your endless imagination.” I’m reading World Memory Champion Kevin Horsley’s bookĀ Unlimited MemoryĀ so I can learn how to make better mental movies.
  2. Everything is design. TheseĀ images of abandoned insane asylums show architecture that was designed to heal. Meanwhile, photographers have photographed theĀ eerie industrial citiesĀ in China where no one lives.
  3. CEO of 3D Robotics and formerĀ WiredĀ editor in chief Chris AndersonĀ explainsĀ why “phones and drones are ā€œnegentropicā€ devices” that get better over time because of upgrades in software. Cars and homes, on the other hand, are ‘entropic’ devices that decline with age.
  4. “As for the best leaders, the people do not notice their existence,ā€ said Lao Tzu. Democracy is nimble. Here’s a primer on the termĀ deep state. Like me, you may be asking soĀ who’s really in control?
  5. Quote I’m chewing on: ā€œI donā€™t really worry about the reward, but to set in motion the machinery to achieve it. My contribution will be the measure of my reward and success.ā€ —Ā Bruce Lee
  6. MinimalismĀ is “one of the mostĀ gratuitous displaysĀ of privilege out there.”Ā Here’s a Louis VuittonĀ an iPhone case thatĀ costs seven iPhones.

  1. GreymatterĀ is Brighton-based electronic producer Graham Luckhurst. After a two-year hiatus of being ā€œpigeonholed into deep house,ā€ heā€™s back with his new albumĀ No Blood WithoutĀ on his very own label Unique Uncut. |Ā LISTEN
  2. Forest SwordsĀ is The Wirral/Liverpool-based electronic producer Matthew Barnes. On his latest track ā€˜The Highest Flood,ā€™ Barnes continues lacing smooth dub to haunting ghostly hooks. I suspect there are more ā€œancient grindsā€ to come. |Ā LISTEN
  3. Parisian producerĀ Edn HakĀ makes his own Burial-esque interpretation on his newĀ Reapers EP.Ā ā€˜Wandererā€™ is one of the standout cuts. It crackles on the surface before dipping intoĀ delicate, heartwarming samples and kicks. |Ā LISTEN
