The best of what I’m reading, watching, and exploring (May 2024)

Posted in the following categories: Motivation

From time to time, instead of my usual email with one big idea you can read in 3 minutes or less, I share with you the best of what I’m reading, watching, and exploring. Enjoy!

A 2-minute video that brought me to tears

A Quantum Reflection. Everyone I’ve shared this short clip with has said, “I needed to see this.” It’s two minutes well spent that might just change your day—or your perspective on life.


Dark Matter by Blake Crouch. No, I haven’t seen the new TV series, but the book is one of my all-time fiction favorites. Crouch manages to weave quantum mechanics into a mind-bending story that kept me reaching for the book every time I had a few minutes to spare. If you like sci-fi or gripping thrillers, or you simply want to get your mind blown, do yourself a favor and pick up a copy.


Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead (2007). [Paramount+ | Amazon Prime] Bleak, disturbing, and brilliant drama about a jewelry store heist gone wrong. Philip Seymour Hoffman was a genius.

The Nice Guys (2016). [Amazon Prime | Apple TV+] Looking for a good laugh? This comedy pairs Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling in an unexpectedly fantastic duo (and I think this is Gosling’s funniest performance yet).

Chef (2014). [Starz | Amazon Prime] This feel-good movie will make you happy and hungry. I was craving a Cubano sandwich by the end of it.


True Detective: Night Country. [HBO Max] This latest installment of the True Detective series takes you to the eerie, frozen landscape of Alaska, where the long, dark nights set the perfect stage for mystery and horror. Every episode is a tense, edge-of-your-seat experience, and Jodie Foster and Kali Reis are both exceptional. Not for the faint of heart.


Odonata (Revisioned) by YAIMA. Stunning, slow, and uplifting. It pairs beautifully with another favorite of mine from YAIMA, Gajumaru.

Throw Some Ass by Sofi Tukker. A completely different vibe from the previous song, Sofi Tukker’s newest release is perfect for a summertime dance party. (For the hilarious and not-safe-for-work music video, click here).
