  •  Have you seen retro games selling for millions of dollars? This video makes a pretty good case for collusion and fraud in the retro game market. If you are just getting into NFTs or other alt assets, beware. You should always know the players involved and how they benefit and you should know how shilling could work on any platform.

  • Rolling Stone put out its list of the 500 Best Songs of all time. The list is pretty whack but it is a good way to do some music exploration.

  • This Variety page is a good one to check to see what’s currently streaming.

  • The Almanack of Naval Ravikant is one book that actually changed how I think about many things, particularly how I think about leverage. If you are too lazy to read it, this post hits on some of the same points.

  • The BAYC treasure hunt last week was awesome. The winners shared their solutions here. I spent like 6 hours trying to figure this out, unsuccessfully.

  • I’ve been enjoying the Everyday Astronaut on Youtube. The starbase tour with Elon is epic - here’s the first part.

  • How much trouble are institutions in?
