Wolmania - Friday, July 15, 2022

Good morning and welcome back. I enjoyed the new Thor movie. Here's this week's stuff:

One More Try – an experimental skate video

Innovative director/my close personal friend Najeeb Tarazi put together this remarkable video depicting the onerous, interminable, thankless work required to pull off a challenging trick. very fun video (killer music over the end credits, too). I love the concept and the visualization is super cool. But don't take my word for it - Tony "I get that a lot" Hawk liked it too.

(I expect to see this ripped off everywhere in coming months or years but accept no substitute!)

Item 2: a list

Stark family direwolves, ranked:

  1. Grey Wind
  2. Nymeria
  3. Ghost
  4. Shaggydog
  5. Lady
  6. Summer

(Ranking is for the extremely ongoing book series, not the show)

Item 3: a media recommendation

Ween - A Tear For Eddie

Item 4: a photograph

Svetlana Ivavnenko - "During spring these secret toadhead agamas battle over territory. It is difficult to capture these short and intense conflicts. The temperature in Kalmykia, Russia, doesn’t help either, as it often rises above 30 degrees C (86 degrees Fahrenheit)."

Item 5: space

We make an effort not to be too timely around here (other than the complaints about politics in the preamble), but I would be remiss not to mention that NASA has unveiled the first images from the new James Webb telescope and they're good.

See ya!

Thanks for reading. I'm off to the woods for the weekend. See you next week.
