Lit Hub is a regular treasure trove of book and writing-related content, and every writer needs a good playlist, right? Most writers I know—no matter what kind of writing they do—obsess over the perfect writing tunes. Thanks to Lit Hub's post about YouTuber MysigMind, I'm now hooked on their classical playlists. Each one is organized not by composer or by century, but by evil-doing theme, like "a playlist for a 19th century villain scheming against his enemies" and "a playlist for a 19th century villain admiring his chaos". Fear not, there are a few collections themed for do-gooders, too...
Transport yourself to Tuscany's Apuan Alps for just a few minutes through this excerpt from Yuri Ancarani's short film, Il Capo. I found it absolutely mesmerizing to watch how the quarry chiefs communicate using the simplest hand gestures, controlling every move the enormous machines make to excavate each mammoth slab of Carrara marble. In the film, "the quarry becomes an otherworldly realm in which to explore the interplay between man, machine, and nature—all bound together by an unusual language of delicate gesture and brute force."
