"I'd recommend these YouTube channels:
I'm a self taught woodworker and now work in cabinetry thanks to the skills I picked up from these channels and…"
"There are plenty of bench-top lathes around. I turned a bowl on a bench lathe (not my own) just the other day, actually, and the thing was smaller than these models:
The bowl I turned is about six inches in diameter and about three inches…"
"A few dictionaries seem to define "rewind" as simply something along the lines of "to make a recording move backward". If the English language has adopted this broader meaning of the term, then we can't really say it's…"
"While there are many important Canadian writers, my top three favourite novelists would be:
- Michael Ondaatje (Sri Lankan-born)
- Margaret Atwood
- Sinclair Ross
I'd like to include Leonard Cohen, though he only wrote two novels and excelled…"
"And Kafka was Czech - though he was German-speaking. What do you mean by linguistic difference? American and British English are pretty close, sure, but I've found American and British literature to be two rather distinct genres, so to…"
"At first I thought you were looking for new, as in current/contemporary jazz artists. So I'll give you a few of those. "The later stuff" doesn't mean 50s/60s! Jazz hasn't died yet.Roy Hargrove is current. This tune of his is…"

"You don't really get to be so picky until you're older, and even then, landing the job you actually want might be harder than you think. I've had a lot of jobs for someone my age (I think). There were ones I enjoyed, like when I…"

Leonard Cohen, Fleet Foxes, Hiss Golden Messenger
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
There is a crack in everything; that's how the light gets in.
Life is short, art long, opportunity fleeting, experiment treacherous, judgment difficult.
A quiet secluded life in the country, with the possibility of being useful to people to whom it is easy to do good, and who are not accustomed to have it done to them; then work which one hopes may be of some use; then rest, nature, books, music, love for one’s neighbor — such is my idea of happiness.
