Weekly digest (10/7/11)

The fun and late nights of the last few weeks (James Blake! Bon Iver! Jens Lekman!) left me a little worse for the wear. I’m finally feeling better after a mild but annoying cold. It cooled down significantly, but the notion of rain and staying cozy seemed quite appealing.

  • Read it. We chose the spooky classic Frankenstein for one of my book clubs this month. It plays with so many themes, I wish I had a Norton Critical edition to unpack them all.
  • See it. As the whole internet was, I was sad to hear about Steve Jobs’ passing. If you haven’t watched his 2005 Stanford University commencement speech I would make time to do so.
  • Hear it. After 3+ years, new Feist album (“Metals“)!! It’s melancholy and textured and I love it already.
