By Ventipop @ventipop

Today's Daily Grind needs Ritalin. It suffers a bit from Attention Deficit Disorder and is a little all over the map. Think of it as one of those brown, paper sack grab bags people used to rope you into buying. We've got coverage of the Farmer Olympics, male urination splashback, why the world is only getting better, fictional Hollywood brands, the David Spade Index, how to deal with stress, great comedies since 2000 and we still had room for "Every Song Ever".

  • In a day and age where there are over 30 million songs in the Spotify library, how do we decide what to listen to? Ben Ratliff sets out to arm us with conceptual tools to deal with the overwhelming abundance of available music in his book "Every Song Ever".  Don't limit your musical exposure by only listening to playlists created by an algorithm or isolating yourself by a genre label. An interesting read for music lovers feeling crushed by the waves of digital music abundance.  There's also a 157-song playlist on Spotify.
