I needed a new notebook so I set out for one yesterday. I looked at the wall of options and thought about what criteria to use to pick a new one.
What I landed on was something I wouldn’t have thought would rise to the top of the list. The list includes that it can’t be too big or have wild designs. My notebook should never attract attention. And it can’t be too small. And maybe the pages should be easy to rip out.
But my notebook isn’t what’s important – it’s what’s inside that’s actually important. The book is just a vessel for ideas and plans and dreams and goals. So the notebook can’t be a precious item on its own.
And it’s also just for me, so that’s why I didn’t post a photo. Ta-da.
I’m more excited about this than I ought to be considering I don’t know what to use it for yet.
And the video is amazing.
With a little extra time and quiet through the day now, I went looking for more podcasts. I’ve listened to a number of Marc Maron’s excellent WTF shows a number of times over the years, but I didn’t always have time for such long episodes in the past.
This episode with Louis CK is tremendously good.
Daft Punk and the soundtrack for Tron.
When Daft Punk finally committed, they told the studio that they were going to “push off any other project.” All they did was work on the score for TRON: Legacy for 19 months: no tours, no more records, nothing.
I heard a great live cover of the Traveling Wilbury’s Handle With Care, which made me think of this other great cover of the Traveling Wilbury’s Handle With Care.
There are so many reasons to get a good night’s sleep. The best one I can think of is that you don’t know if tomorrow will be the day you have to punch a moon truther in the head.
