The Isolation Diaries v33 Reading

We’re working on our next dinner party menu, inspired by Ottolenghi’s new recipe book, Flavour. As the weather warms up, we’re looking forward to more road trips and outdoor destinations. If you think you already know everything about the Beatles, there might still be more to learn. Assembled from shards of memory and written by the witty Craig Brown, 150 Glimpses of The Beatles paints a distinctive portrait of the lads from Liverpool.

The Isolation Diaries v33 Watching

It’s been a strange year, Mr Robot doesn’t even feel all that far-fetched a storyline anymore, though we’re enjoying watching Elliot take down EvilCorp. Bob Ross painted over 1,000 landscapes for his television show, but where are they? Don’t worry, we found them. This is a very special month, because after a long wait we can finally book in to see Tenet on the World’s Largest Screen. Nolan fans, rejoice! Get in quick, now showing on IMAX 1570 film.

The Isolation Diaries v33 Making

The perfect summer dish, we’re rollin’ out the rice paper rolls for great picnic times. Wanna know the trick to the ultimate diner-style hamburger? The New York Times has you covered. Specialty paper design studio Paperazzi is running workshops in December to teach you a variety of bookbinding techniques and the art of Suminagashi, or Japanese Marbling. You can even create your own set of books to take home or give to someone special as a gift.

The Isolation Diaries v33 Listening

A critically-acclaimed work inspired by a visit to South Africa, we’ve been listening to this album by Kendrick Lamar. If you’re a fan of the mockumentary comedy-horror What We Do In The Shadows, you’ve probably noticed already encountered Norma Tanega in recent times. This compilation album released after her death is a great reminder of just how talented the folk singer-songwriter really is. We’ve been gearing up for the release of Tenet, by listening to the soundtrack.
