The Top 25 Songs That Matter Right Now – The New York Times Magazine
*
When I first clicked into this big, interactive New York Times Magazine feature, I expected it to be a simple visual playlist of current pop hits. I was very, very wrong. What I got instead was one of the most interesting bits of cultural journalism I've seen in a long time. It looks at songs by the like of Bruce Springsteen, Lady Gaga, Mariah Carey, Meek Mill, James Blake, and more to offer insight into where we're at as a civilization and how music can be a lot more than notes and words to tap your feet to.

The Known Unknown - 99% Invisible*
Listen to the podcast or dig into the article for this incredible story from 99 % Invisible. We all know about the steadfast Tomb Guards that hold the post at The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and some of us may have even visited Arlington National Cemetery before, but there's a larger story about how the memorial came to be and how a strange phone call from a conspiracy theorist sparked a large-scale investigation. This story explains why we may never bring back an “unknown” soldier again following a massive government cover-up that was exposed in the ‘90s and fundamentally changed the way we identify and memorialize our fallen.

LCD Soundsystem Electric Lady Session
Every time I swing by my friend Alex's apartment, he is always excited to share his latest find from his local record shop. This time, it was LCD Soundsystem's Electric Lady Sessions. One of my biggest regrets is never seeing them in concert as LCD Soundsystem has been a big piece of the soundtrack to my life and I think many other can relate the ability to mark life occasions with songs from their catalog.*
Well, enough sentiment, what about the music? In short, it's awesome. If you are looking for some new tunes or have been charged with playing DJ this weekend, I highly recommend it. I am not a music critic but to me this record feels fresh, fun, and full of groove. My favorite moment? *Listen for the transition between "Home" and Chic's "I Want Your Love."

One Breath Around The World - Guillaume Néry
*
This astounding short film features champion freediver Guillaume Néry as he takes a deep breath and swims the waters of the world. From caves to open oceans and submerged forests, Néry freedives under ice, with hunters, and comes face to face with sleeping sperm whales. Watch it on your best screen (preferably at 4k) and try to avoid holding your breath - it's beautiful, jaw-dropping, and a great way to escape for 12 minutes.
