April 22 · Issue #34 · View online

The best content I've ever found. Mouthwatering concepts, tempting questions, juicy books, delicious songs, exquisite short films, and other surprises.


Provoking Picture
One of the coolest paintings Iโ€™ve seen about human evolution. By Octavio Ocampo.
Juicy Books
This week I re-listened to Sapiens. Itโ€™s one of my all-time favorite books. Truly juicy. Link to audiobook. Here are my notes from this time around (hadnโ€™t taken notes first time, was a while ago).
Mouthwatering Concepts
A distillation from my notes, about a mouthwatering concept from the book:
Since the start of the universe (if there was one), Physics, Chemistry, and then Biology were the major disciplines that explained how the world & universe works / evolved.
But once humans experienced a cognitive revolution that allowed us to communicate abstract ideas, stories, and imagination, Culture became a 4th major influence for how the world evolved, creating History.
Tempting Questions
What is a story youโ€™re telling yourself that you donโ€™t want to tell yourself anymore?
What is a new story you could tell yourself that you want to tell yourself?
Exquisite Short Film & Delicious Music
3 days ago Lil Dicky released this video. Some funny parts, so much in one 7min music video. Itโ€™s crazy how many artists he got to collaborate. Shows the power of having a good cause. Check out the video description for the list of all the people.
Lil Dicky - Earth (Official Music Video)
And now that weโ€™re in music video land, these two by Maroon 5 are exquisite (better songs).
Sugarโ€™s video has great energy. They had a fantastic idea for the video: crashing weddings to play Sugar. Youโ€™ll definitely have a smile on your face throughout the video and after. Thatโ€™s probably why itโ€™s the 8th most watchedย video on Youtube
Maroon 5 - Sugar
They also made this video 10 months ago and it now has 2.1 Billion views โ€” thatโ€™s crazy. Also a simple yet great concept for a video.
Maroon 5 - Girls Like You ft. Cardi B
Finger-licking Quote
โ€œThe cave you fear holds the treasure you seekโ€ โ€” Joseph Campbell
