Welcome to nonostantement: a weekly newsletter with gracious, upsetting and exceptional stuff found all over the Internet.
Hi, I am Joele and this is my weekly newsletter, made with love in Barcelona. I work on line and so collect links all the time. This is the place where I share them with my friends.
I recently went back to listening to this album which I loved back 15 years ago. I have never been able to see them live and 3 times I even happened to arrive in a city where they had played the day before. All I have is Spotify, I guess.
Don’t forget that if you like this newsletter you can now offer me a virtual coffee to show your support :)
[Video] - I had to go and check because I didn't believe it but it's true: 20 years have passed since the debut of “The Sopranos”. One of the first high quality series and still something not to be missed if you are into the “Mafia boss in therapy” genre.
A fascinating and weird video about being Jesus as a side hustle. A brief look at that micropayments gig economy where some people manage to make a living doing absurd niche things, thanks to the easy access we now have to a global market.
An incredibly detailed forensic analysis of what happened during the explosion in Beirut.
These guys wander on Google Maps looking among Italian train depots to find wagons with graffiti and then publish them on an Instagram account followed by almost nobody. This is the Internet I like.
[Vide] - RUSSIAN CYBERPUNK FARM // РУССКАЯ КИБЕРДЕРЕВНЯ: “They say that Russia is a technically backward country, there are no roads, robotics do not develop, rockets do not fly, and mail goes too long. It’s a bullshit.”
So the purpose of Netflix series now is not just what you think and that is to tell a story but also “to provide sympathetic background for staring at your phone, refreshing your own feeds—on which you’ll find Emily in Paris memes, including a whole genre of TikTok remakes.”
That's it for now.
