What Else is On? is a collection of things from elsewhere on the web that I’ve been enjoying.
PUT THIS ON
First off, here’s a track to throw on and vibe out to while you catch up on the below. This month, it’s…
Midnight Rendezvous by Casiopea
📚 USPS Decides Electric Trucks Are Good, Actually [Motherboard]
Enjoy some good news from Aaron Gordon about the USPS. It’s worth checking out Aaron’s entire 2022 USPS saga, especially ‘Who Killed the Electric Mail Truck?‘ while you’re there.
📚 Paper at 10 [andy.works]
One of my favorite apps of all time, Paper, turned ten this year. One of its designers, Andrew Allen, took to his blog to recount the heady days of the early 2010s, and tell the story of how this simple drawing app came to be.
📚 Uh-Oh, Your Blood Is Full of Plastic [Gawker]
Welp! Whoops! Yikes! Oof! Eesh! Jeepers! Hoo boy! Golly!
📺 Answer in Progress [YouTube]
Answer in Progress is one of the channels that’s been inspiring me to get back to making my own videos. Their energy and curiosity remind me of exactly why I started a YouTube channel. I promoted one of their videos in a previous What Else Is On, but this time I wanted to call out their channel in general. Take your pick, they’re all good.
📺 How to Escape Your Creative Ruts [Sean Tucker]
Sean Tucker is a street photographer I found on YouTube after I started shooting film. His videos are very tight and professional. Gives great creative advice. This particular video contains his advice on, as you might guess, how to get past a creative rut.
LISTEN TO THIS
🔊 How Cool Ranch Doritos Got Cooler [Underunderstood]
This is a fun story about Doritos’ change from “Cool Ranch” to “Cooler Ranch,” and why no one at the company would talk about it. Underunderstood is a podcast about solving really niche mysteries and explaining the mundane. It’s one of my faves. Here’s a link to their “New? Start Here” page.
🔊 Loud Friends
As it happens, I also have a podcast with my friend Zac about…kind of whatever we feel like talking about? It’s mostly for us, but you might enjoy it!
🕹️ Tunic [$29.99, PC + Xbox]
A very beautiful video game about secrets.
