Capybara Selfies and Trash Fires

Let it burn, let it burn, let it burn.

Hello internet friends,

I know, I know. It’s Tuesday. Life happens. Here we go anyway, let’s do it.

I do have a metric (hah!) buttload of Brexit articles in my Instapaper but I am pretty sure we’re all slightly sick of hearing about it at the moment, aren’t we? So in the spirit of escapism, why don’t we take a breath (you know, without our bloody watch telling us to do it) and watch a bunch of capybara videos on the YouTube. I don’t know about you but it calms me down considerably.

As a big proponent of the “more selfies!” movement – which I might have just invented, who knows? – I am obviously pretty much in favour of all the angry tweets (are there any others these days? I am not too sure anymore.) triggered by this New York Times article.
A few personal favorites.

So, capybaras and selfies, are we all nice and calm now? Well, depending on your personal disposition this ode to gentrification might either make your head explode or maybe you just nod along. Either way, it is interesting.

If you have a lot of time on your hands and want to read something extremely disturbing how about this? My four months as a private prison guard.

I do enjoy magazines quite a lot, but somehow I never quite felt in the target demographic of either of them. But finally there is one aimed directly at me.

That’s it for today, let’s go outside and warm ourselves on our own personal little trash fire.
