We made it to the weekend! I’m not a huge Anglophile, but I’m looking forward to going to a friend’s house to watch the Royal Wedding (we’re recording it, though, not watching live at 7 AM, which I’m very grateful for ). I also am headed to a concert tonight, if the rain holds out… fingers crossed for me!
On to the weekly favorites…
I had to share this interview with the Miranda family (as in, the family of Lin-Manuel Miranda) about the importance of philanthropy in their lives. It’s so refreshing to see that they still have such a focus on helping others, no matter how “famous” they get! I know I don’t actually know any of them, but they seem like such genuinely kind people.
I love when orchestras do their take on pop songs – it’s just such an unexpected combination, and it just sounds so GOOD! Check out this arrangement of “Love Song,” sung by Sara Bareilles herself.
You’ve probably heard this audio clip making its way around the Internet – is it “yanny” or “laurel?” I can’t hear anything but laurel, and can’t understand how anyone could possibly hear anything else!
Yesterday I talked about accessibility and technology, and then saw this article about Microsoft releasing an adaptive Xbox controller – what timing! The whole article is worth a read, and I loved learning that Microsoft has en entire lab devoted to “Inclusive Tech.”
