Weekly Inspiration 010

Your weekly roundup of the best of the Internet this week.

Film / TV / Music 
The arguments against Idris Elba playing James Bond are bullshit | Novelist Anthony Horowitz put his foot in it over the weekend when he noted that he thought the black British actor Idris Elba was “too street” to ever play James Bond. (“It’s not a color issue,” he insisted in an interview with the Daily Mail, name-checking another black British actor, Adrian Lester, as a better choice for the part. “Is it a question of being suave? Yeah.”
The 13 Best Pop Songs About Women Masturbating | In addition to spanning a variety of genres and eras, the songs on this list illustrate the many ways self-sex can enhance women’s lives. To some, masturbation is an erotic form of foreplay; to others, it’s a more defiant act of self love and self care. Some sing of a "you" that they’re missing, some of a "you" that they’re glad to be rid of, and some of no "you" at all
Robin Williams's Daughter Wrote a Beautiful, Poetic Note About Sadness and Life | "I know how dark and endless that tunnel can feel, but if happiness seems impossible to find, please hold on to the possibility of hope, faint though it may be. Because I promise you, there're enough nights under the same yellow moon for all of us to share, no matter how or when you find your way there."
Australians can now find love on China's biggest dating show, 'If You Are The One' | They are recruiting lovelorn Australian Mandarin speakers of both sexes from Sydney and Melbourne to appear in two episodes to be shot in Nanjing, where the show is based. Packages and highlights will be shot locally

The Art Of Stillness In The Japanese Wilderness | There are three islands in Japan’s Inland Sea where some of the world’s best contemporary art lives quietly nestled between trees. Naoshima, with a collection of three buildings by Pritzker-Prize winning architect Tadao Ando, houses exquisite site-specific sculptures and paintings from James Turrell, Walter de Maria, Lee Ufan, Claude Monet and Yayoi Kusama. On the smaller, rougher hewn Teshima, there is one art museum, by Ryue Nishizawa, the youngest architect to ever win the Pritzker. Inside, one piece of art, a breath-taking otherworldly installation by Rei Naito that uses water to evoke a meditative trance
Cheering German crowds greet refugees after long trek from Budapest to Munich | “We just wanted them to know that the torture is over,” said Hedy Gupta, a grandmother handing out slabs of chocolate amid welcoming cheers. “I have children and a five-year-old grandchild and when I think what they have been through, these children, it leaves me on the ground.”
A Field Guide to Dwelling on Your Failures | When something doesn’t go right, the usual, understandable instinct is often to forget it, as quickly as possible. Move on, we advise each other. Don’t look back. Or, as Don Draper memorably said (twice): “This never happened. It will shock you how much this never happened.” And yet, as tempting as it is to think of stoically soldiering on as the smart approach to dealing with failure, there’s also a solid case for wallowing in your mistakes, at least for a time
Japan Has a Google Street View Map for Cats | Imagine you are an adorable little kitty exploring the streets of Japan. Where should you go? What should you see? Luckily, the tourism board of Hiroshima has created a website with street maps positioned from a cat’s point of view. Technology is just so wonderful
