Friday 13th May's top five is;

1) Video of the week;

Reggie Watts - Coffee Sips

I've been following Reggie for a few years now and he keeps getting better and better. It's such a new style of entertainment, and so unique. Watch as many videos as you can find, it's all dynamite.

2) Gig of the week;

INDIE NIGHT #3 @ The Lamplighter.

Another banger of a night from Alex Taylor and Lee Irons (you can listen to them on our podcast here). Not to be missed, quality music and quality DJing.

(p.s. It's also Secret Gig #11 the following night in the same place.)

3) Quote of the week;

"...if you know the way broadly you will see it in everything.." - Miyamoto Musashi.

I first heard this on JRE. I take this to mean once you find the way in one thing, you can see or apply it to others. It comes from The Book Of Five Rings, a great read and I thoroughly reccomend it.

4) Article of the week;

Depression is not a battle that can be won or lost.

It's an interesting read, anything that helps me understand depression is a bonus in my opinion. I still feel like I have no understanding, having only had briefs episodes of intense sadness as a result of loss. It's an important one to think about as a lot of people (350 million to be precise) do suffer with it. Worth ten minutes of your time.

5) Thing of the week;

Here are some excellent podcasts I've listened to this week:

The Joe Rogan Experience - Whitney Cummings

Found My Fitness with Rhonda Patrick Ph.D - Ray Cronise

Bill Burr's Monday Morning Podcast


See you next week,
