I Met The Walrus

In 1969 a 14 year old boy called Jerry Levitan managed to sneak into John Lennon's Toronto hotel room and persuade him to record a 30 minute interview.

In 2006 the recording was edited down to 5 minutes and made into an animated film called 'I Met The Walrus'.  The film has won many awards and has appeared at film festivals around the world.

Toss a Coin to Your Witcher

I'm really enjoying The Witcher on Netflix and looking forward to the next series.  It features a catchy song called 'Toss a coin to your Witcher', sung by Geralt's companion, the bard Jaskier.  Remixes and covers of the song are appearing all over the internet and AV Club has rounded up some of the best ones.

This Metal cover one is probably my favourite.
