Reading: Lots

The Cost of Apple News //Feb 12, 2019//

Touched on it on TIV but I’m really looking forward to seeing what they unveil. I hope they get a lot of publications onboard and are able to handle it elegantly. Issues are something I’m interested to see how they handle. For me it’s important to have an issue of the New Yorker or Economist to go through. With Apple News, I have a feeling issues will mostly just disappear.

How Russian Doll’ flirts with psychedelic therapy //Feb 11, 2019//

Really interesting to learn more about ketamine, a drug referenced in the show, and how it actually relates to a lot of the aspects in the show. Makes me appreciate it even more even if it wasn’t in the creators original intentions.

Why do so many book covers still use the phrase for works of fiction? //Feb 14, 2019//

How novel.

The Bello Collective ////

First issue of this newsletter I’ve read. Lots of good podcast talk.

Inside Podcasting

Voyage to the Stars sounds like a fun improv fiction podcast with some heavy hitters.

Amazon won’t be building HQ2 in new York City after all //Feb 14, 2019//

This whole ordeal has been a shit show.

The Academy Clarifies Controversial Oscars Plans for Announcing Categories; Scorsese, Tarantino and More Blast Decision in Open Letter //Feb 13, 2019//

This is better, and if it were me, I’d probably say okay. But I’m glad to see people continue to push back.

Inside Beer

Nothing really stood out in this newsletter.

Watch Grassley get angry when McConnell interrupts him to announce Trump’s emergency declaration //Feb 14, 2019//

Pretty funny initial reaction. Still, an emergency declaration is ridiculous.

When Your Shared Netflix Account Outlasts The Relationship //Feb 13, 2019//

This doesn’t surprise me. But come on people, don’t continue to use your exes account. Especially if you have to fight over what’s currently playing. Leave them be.

The Machine Stops //Feb 10, 2019//

Really great essay from Oliver Sacks.

You Will Thank Me //Feb 17, 2018//

Another snoozer from the Shours & Murmors in the New Yorker.

All Your Subscriber Base Are Belong To Us

Really interested to see what Apple does both with their news service, as I’ve touched on before, but also with their TV/streaming service, which has some heavy hitters to launch with based on what information is out there today.
