What I'm reading and watching
(No. 77) by Stephen P. Williams
Hello everyone. I end up reading and watching a lot during the making of Stephen’s People. Today I’d like to share some links to books, articles and videos that I think you’ll like. Please add your own ideas in the comments. I’ll start with an interesting collection of books by a New York writer who grew up in Montreal.
The trenchant and fascinating Gay Walley is an elegant maverick, and a true artist — film, theater, novels. Recently, she published a six volume collection of novels called Venus as She Ages that reveals a deep engagement with the world, seen from above. She’s getting older (and more beautiful), but the years only seem to enhance her creativity.
Here is an inspiring video from Ashton Applewhite, who is waging the good fight against ageism.
A chilling tail of technology gone wrong: their eyes won’t get software updates any more.
This astronomy newsletter always has some interesting tidbits, and I’m not even interested in astronomy.
It’s cool to an oldster.
A tweet from the always interesting radio host, Loui B. Free.
Published in 2021, How to Blow Up a Pipeline is a provocative book that seems to advocate for the usefulness off violence, and the naïveté of nonviolence, to prevent global collapse from climate change. It’s got a great cover.
I hope you enjoy some of these recommendations. I’d love to hear your suggestions, and share them with the newsletter.
