1. It’s the Summer Solstice this weekend (Sunday at 10:37 a.m. is the astronomical high point) so let your inner hippie celebrate: play with fire, think of what you want to “burn off” that no longer serves you, pick some flowers, and move into the fullness of the year.

2. If you’ve ever wondered where that old-timey 1930’s “announcer voice” came from and why it went away, this short read will tell you.

3. I don’t really play or pay attention to video games but I saw “Unravel” ┬ábeing talked about online and watched the trailer and it┬ámay have made me choke up a little. It’s made in Sweden and features “a little being made of yarn who unravels the farther away it gets from the things that it loves.”
