Killings brings you our weekly selection of posts that have amused, enlightened and
generally distracted us.
How wonderful life is now Thanks, Textbooks is in our world.
A big call, but great viewing nonetheless – here are 21 pictures that sum up ‘the whole history of science fiction’.
Martin McDonagh’s post-In Bruges (love!) follow up film was released this week. Before hitting the cinemas you can see his award winning short Six Shooter here.
You can also stream the first 43-minutes of Hitchcock’s first film (as assistant director, film editor, set designer, and scenario writer) here.
If you have time today or over the weekend for a bit of the ol’ click-and-read action, here’s a compilation of 10 various long reads that may be of interest.
If you haven’t already come across this in your daily internet routine, marvellous Brainpickings have taken a looksee at the Daily Routine of Famous writers.
‘In Defense of Cursive Writing’. This short piece got us thinking about handwriting – is it a blessing or a curse? (Vote one blessing!)
Some mixtape madness:
- Tiny Mixtape is great and very funny – supply the premise (i.e. ‘It’s now been a full moon for three days, has space stopped?’) and someone else supplies the tracklist
- Relive Hairpin‘s ‘Worst Make Out mixtape ever’ – we’ve all been there (but any Stephen Colbert interview is hot)
- Halloween may have been a few weeks ago, but let this hipster mix haunt your ears
- Similarly behind the times, this is a dated ‘mp3 of the week’ list but there are some darn good names on it (Scott Walker and The Rolling Stones, come on)
And finally, McSweeney’s presents ‘Wayne Coyne’s Human Head-Shaped Tumor’ – a radio drama featuring the Flaming Lips, Bill Callahan and Okkervil River this weekend for your aural pleasure.
Have a great weekend, y’all!
