Weekly Virtual Mix Tape: January 21st, 2022
The Red Chuck Weekly Virtual Mix Tape playlists are a collection of ten songs I've been listening to this week, crossing genre, era, and taste. No themes, just the tunes I've been sticking in my ears lately.
Available on Spotify, Apple Music, & YouTube.
Support those bands on Bandcamp or their websites by purchasing that music.
Made You A List
A collection of links & reads I've been sticking in my brain the past week.
Space.com- Possible sign of Mars life? Curiosity rover finds 'tantalizing' Red Planet organics
NPR.org- Scientists think they've found a big, weird moon in a far-off star system
"Existing telescopes aren't powerful enough to let astronomers see moons in other planetary systems directly. Instead, scientists can only infer the presence of a moon. If they see a tell-tale pattern of dimming in a star, for example, that can mean a moon and its planet are passing in front of the star and blocking some of its light."
The Boston Globe- Pressley wants Americans to ‘stay uncomfortable’ with memories of Jan. 6
“Each day that passes without meaningful accountability, we risk normalizing this behavior."
"...it’s important that we sit with those feelings and stay uncomfortable."
Code Switch Podcast- They came, they saw, they reckoned?
A hell of a listen, especially for my fellow white Americans who feel they're "one of the good ones".
NPR.org- 3 cats have outmaneuvered their 2 humans to hold a blender hostage for weeks
An epic saga.
The Red Chuck Précis is a weekly blog including my recent thoughts, a virtual mix tape playlist (available on Spotify, Apple Music, & YouTube), and a list links, reads, & other interesting things I've found from around the Web.
