Hi. What’s up?
We were about to ask you the same thing. What’re you doing this weekend?
Well, I’d planned to go to the tip, sit around in my pants for a while, maybe… and there was talk of going for a walk down to the shops on Sunday – but I don’t want to overdo it.
Don’t… don’t you want something a bit more interesting to do?
What’s more interesting than going to the tip? They have diggers!
This! All this stuff! Look!
Play: XCOM 2
It’s like Football Manager and The Sims during a B-movie alien invasion. You control the resistance – building your base to increase skills and knowledge, ultimately fighting in turn-based format. It’s tough, fun and addictive: if you’ve invested hours of your actual life in your team, you them to win…
Listen: Pixies - Head Carrier
They’re back. Again! This is the second Pixies album since they let bygones be bygones – and while it lacks the addictive, where-will-it-go-next qualities of the band’s best, it does seem more settled than their last album. Besides, who doesn’t want a new Pixies album? We don’t not want one.
Want: Amazon Echo
Turn your stupid, dumb shack into a futuristic voice-activated tech-condo. Inside the Amazon Echo speaker lurks Amazon’s smart assistant, Alexa. Ask her to play music and control your smart-home; get the latest weather, find sports scores; order takeaway; and download new skills. (She even knows a few Chuck Norris jokes.)
See: Luke Cage
Luke “Hi! I have superhuman strength and indestructible skin!” Cage is a crime-fighting former convict in New York. And so many people started binge-watching his story when the whole first series appeared that it crashed Netflix. That’s how much you need to see this Marvel series.
Search for almost any book and find out how long it’ll take to read. Now you know how many tomes to take on hols to avoid emptying your suitcase all over the floor in front of the check-in desk (assuming you don’t have an e-reader… which you should; it’s 2016).
Listen: So You've Been Publicly Shamed, by Jon Ronson
One ill-judged tweet, taken in the wrong context, by the wrong person, can spread like wildfire – ruining careers, families and lives. Jon Ronson narrates his own work, exploring why this gleeful mob-mentality takes hold, and what the personal consequences are for those who’ve been shamed.
Whoa. Well, I do like running away from the diggers, but that’s all much better. Can I have one of these every week?
You most certainly can. There’ll be three more!
Isn’t it, though! And if you want to know more about the OnePlus 3, which is currently available exclusively on O2, you can do that here >>
