alt-J’s new album “Relaxer”

I’ve been listening to the English indie band’s new album, which came out earlier this month. It’s soft and dark with a variety of sounds and instruments. On their website you can play an interactive game inspired by the album.

“Red” by Ramsey Shehadeh

I read this short story on Tor.com last week. It’s a about a boy who drops into his favorite detective board game to try to solve the mystery of his missing sister.

Um, yeah… I’m really into trees right now- (did I just say that?). I listened to a podcast the other day about how trees communicate in forests through their roots and certain fungus.

I also began perusing the book The Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate – Discoveries from a Secret World by Peter Wohlleben, which is at the top of my to-read list.
