Visual Pitstop

Do I Look Like a Man? // Article, Body Image // A reflection on femininity (and by extension, masculinity) and society’s expectations of how women ought to look.

Cry, Robot: Automata Review // Movie Review // “Not since The Matrix, or perhaps even Blade Runner (which Automata also liberally references), has a dystopian world seemed so compelling in-and-of itself.” References to 2 of my favourite films of all time? Science Fiction? Robots? I was convinced this was a must-watch after viewing the trailer — The Verge‘s review just confirmed it.

The Food Lab: Make Your Own Just-Add-Hot-Water Instant Noodles (and Make Your Coworkers Jealous) // Recipes // I was so taken by this that I re-read it about 10 times. Really. Now to just give it a shot.

The Making of Malala // Video, Documentary // I love the NY Times for various reasons and documentaries like this are one of those reasons. Adam B. Ellick and Gabe Johnson present a side of Malala Yosafzai’s story that we may not have come across.

Sam Harris on Spirituality without Religion, Happiness, and How to Cultivate the Art of Presence // Book Review // I do not agree with Sam Harris’ take on religion entirely, but this review on Brain Pickings does reflect a belief I’ve always held: that you can be spiritual without belonging to an organised religion.
