Here, in no particular order, are some things I enjoyed over the last month:
This is a good interview with Mary Beard that captures her appeal, namely directness and intellegence. It also highlights the importance of hard work:
Whenever she says hard work, whether it’s 12 hours in a library, or five days in Pompeii, she means that in a good way. Like an athlete describing a day in the gym, she sees it as a means to an end in principle – good things can’t be achieved without hard work – but can’t imagine not wanting to do it, either. She is in a permanent state of urgent mental inquiry. It sounds exhausting, but she never looks exhausted. </blockquote>
Alright, this final one is a cheat because it was only released on May 3rd. But it's a new song from Radiohead! One of my favourite bands ever! Plus, it's actually pretty good.
