Sights & Sounds: Kate Lindsay
Common Discourse is a project designed to help others (and ourselves) think through creativity, focus, and intentional work—from Alex Tan & Alice Otieno.
Every Tuesday we share words from a few ideas, a quote from somebody else, and links worth sharing. On Fridays we invite a guest to share images from their camera roll and a sound that resonates with them. Words from the Journal come on the first of each month.
Kate Lindsay is a culture writer and co-founder of one of my favorite newsletter projects,, your essential guide to what’s good on the internet. Her essays titled “I don’t care what AI wrote” and “Why it all feels like too much” have stuck with me since first encountering them.
I admire Kate’s bravery and ability to write so clearly about cultural topics in a world that is moving a million miles per hour. If you’ve ever tried to do the same, I think you’ll feel similarly about her work.
Here’s what she sent us this week.
"Dreams" by The Cranberries would be my forever MySpace song
