Seven things on Sunday (FToF #195)

Things of note for the week ending Sunday September 18th, 2016.

Hello fam. I’m just back from a three day work trip to Barcelona (with the best looking team in the world) and it struck me that I hadn’t written this week’s newsletter. Bums. Please forgive my brevity. I am hungover, a touch sunburnt, and very very tired.

Normal service to resume next week. Although I don’t know what really counts as normal when it comes to this thing, mind.

Shall we?

1. WHAT IS SUPERMAN ABOUT?

Although it has a dig at the underrated Superman Returns (really), this piece on what Superman is actually for is pretty bang on.

I enjoyed reading this.

2. ZAPPED

Dave Trott on why he thinks we’re in ‘Generation Bland‘.

This made me think.

3. APPLE AND DIVERSITY

Apple wrote an email with the words ‘off the record’ in it. Mic published it. And it’s a doozy.

This made me say ‘fair play’.

4. MARS

The Mars Rover has been busy again. Stunning.

This one made say ‘Wow!’

5. TYPECAST AS A TERRORIST

Riz Ahmed writing in the Guardian. Best thing on the list this week.

This one made me go ‘Ach’

UPDATE: NOW WITH LINK.

6. SEX WITH YOUR PARTNER, EVERY DAY, FOR A YEAR

A good read on learning what you need.

This one stayed with me.

7. WANT TO SEE THE COMPLETE HISTORY OF SPACE EXPLORATION ON A SINGLE MAP?

Of course you do.

Bonuses this week are as follows:

And that’s me, done.

I don’t even have a gif for you.

Oh, hang on.

Let me check.

Yes I do.

This is basically me, in about 30 seconds (after I’ve hit publish).

Have a great week x

    Morning James.

    There doesn’t seem to be a link in post number five this week.

    Hope that Monday is kind to you.

    Thanks.

    Gareth.
