This week in The Zone: Sean Connery reading Cavafy’s Ithaca, Ninja studies (is this real?), Finnegan Fox laughing, and more.
- Each week Robert Fripp releases ambient instrumental soundscapes on YouTube. An oasis of calm in the middle of the 2020 whirlwind.
- November 3 was World Jellyfish Day. Who knew? OER has compiled their jellyfish greatest hits from deep-ocean exploration expeditions in the Pacific, and they’re mesmerizing, which cannot be said about Project Management Day (today) or Love Your Lawyer Day (tomorrow).
- Astrophotographer Matt Harbison has spent more than 500 hours in the last five years to capture the Orion constellation in minute details. The result? An unfathomable 2.5 gigapixel image composed of 2,508 individual shots.
- Want to become a ninja? The International Ninja Research Center at Mey University in Japan offers a master’s degree program for ninja studies.
- RIP Sean Connery. Granted, he was 90, but still, it’s a huge loss. Listen to him reading Cavafy’s epic poem Ithaca set to the music of Vangelis. You can read the whole text of Ithaca here.
- Will animators inherit the post-pandemic Earth?
- And, to end in a more positive tone: Finnegan Fox laughing. You’re welcome!
Quote I’m Pondering
“Be “selectively ignorant.”
Ignore topics that drain your attention.
Unfollow people that drain your energy.
Abandon projects that drain your time.
Do not keep up with it all. The more selectively ignorant you become, the more broadly knowledgeable you can be.”James Clear
