"Could I interest you in everything about "Inside"?"

Gorgik: This post is a perfect homage, given the care and obsession that it took to make it. Rhaomi makes a rather spectacular post on comedian Bo Burnham and his pandemic special "Inside."

Don't miss Rhaomi's really wonderful breakdown of The Lion King's original score, including translations of "the subtle Zulu/Xhosa vocals woven into the score that actually comments on the film, like a Greek chorus," and more, in metabaroque's Lion King Finale post.

Poems for shy people in love

ShyShy by akageorge (cc by-nc-nd)

In Ask Metafilter, beijingbrown asks about "poems or lines of poetry about love that is awkward, hesitant and quiet - filled with silences and mis-timings" ... while in other quests for words and sounds about feelings, thoughts and things, switcheroo seeks "songs that pick me up and make me want to live again after a long day of work," picklenickle is looking for good songs with lyrics that are hella gay, and slidell searches for children's rhymes and songs that are free of ghastly, scary, and offensive things.
