Happy Friday, fam! Here are some interesting things I’ve found on the internet in recent weeks, for your weekend enjoyment.
- I’ve been enjoying some animated short films recently, and I stumbled upon this one that I quite liked.
- One of my favorite Sondheim musicals is Company, and this video from a few years back provides a nice analysis of what makes the musical work and how it’s been reimagined over the years.
- I noted in an earlier Friday Feed that you can use people’s end-of-year book lists to figure out some solid picks by looking for repeat mentions. Well, Tim Challies does just that by giving you the consensus picks for best Christian books of 2020.
- Last March, the folks at 9Marks listened to the most popular preachers in the country to find out what they had in common. The results were…not great. But it is instructive for those who have the ministry of preaching and teaching.
- Cal Newport makes some observations about how working remotely may make it easier for people to demand more of you.
- One more from Cal: a thought experiment about a chaotic factory.
- This Art of Manliness post on the mid-life transition of a man’s life really resonates.
- Samuel Sey warns that some attempts to be “anti-racist” may end up making you more racist.
- Ted left Twitter. He suggests some good reasons why.
- One more from Challies: this time, about worrying over the things we can’t control. Definitely need to read this from time to time.
- “This is the part of the song that’s really quiet…”
That’s it for this week. See you next week! (How is it already almost February?!?)
