THINGS THAT CAUGHT MY ATTENTION, 9/16 - 9/22

  1. 1.
    Jean-Luc Godard's "Sympathy for the Devil" film
    I thought this was a documentary/live recording of the evolution of the "Sympathy for the Devil" studio sessions by the Rolling Stones in '67 or '68. That was half of it. Also, a lot of other political nonsense. But it's shot so well. We also watched the Keith Richards "Under the Influence" doc the night before. The man, energetically, remains unchanged after 45 years.
  2. 2.
    Barcelona 2015-2016 Champions League blue kits
    How can one club have simultaneously so many fresh and so many appalling kits in such a tiny window of time?
  3. 3.
    "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese art of decluttering and organizing" by Marie Kondo
    I feel more focused simply reading the first few pages.
  4. 4.
    Eric Dolphy's "Out to Lunch"
    This 1964 Blue Note album really made an impression on me. Very weird. One of those albums where, if you knew viewers were watching your life with that as the soundtrack, you'd feel pretty cool.
  5. 5.
    Robert Lewandowski's 5 goals in 9 minutes.
    Holy shit.
  6. 6.
    Robert Irwin's Excursus: Homage to the Square at Dia: Beacon.
    I wish I was a sculpture installation artist.
  7. 7.
    Jason Zweig on Masters in Business podcast
    I could listen to neurological economics all day.
  8. 8.
    The Umbro West Ham 2015-2016 dark blue away kits / Victor Moses form so far this season.
    Victor Moses is a pretty cool player who is playing particularly well and has an interesting hairline.
  9. 9.
    The skirt steak at Libertador in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn.
  10. 10.
    Ian Bremmer's "The World in 60 Seconds" YouTube series
    There's one filmed on the subway. These are random, moderately informative, and sometimes supremely lacking in context.
  11. 11.
    "What a Time to Be Alive" by Future & Drake
    These tapes amaze me. They are meant to be party songs, but they are really sonically depressing and sad.
