Can’t stop listening to VeilHymn, a musical collaboration between Devonté Hynes and Bryndon Cook. Part of Mailchimp’s beautiful and slightly absurd campaign consisting of videos and mini websites. My other favorite is MailShrimp.
“Criticism is a privilege that you earn — it shouldn’t be your opening move in an interaction…”.
Malcolm Gladwell on Criticism, Tolerance, and Changing Your Mind.
The charming Lulu Miller gives us an animated look into the lives and practices of radio personalities and broadcasters, and speaks to the effects radio can have on us as individuals and a society.
Wow! Sennheiser and FREITAG collaboration: Headphones individualized with a piece of recycled truck tarp in a rugged FREITAG case. Love this!
Enjoyed this How I Built This Episode with Patagonia founder Yves Chouinard. He started the company in 1973, to make climbing gear he couldn’t find elsewhere. Over decades of growth, he has implemented a unique philosophy about business, leadership and profit. Incredibly inspiring. Especially, the ant analogy. Have a listen.
I recently discovered NPR’s How I Built This Podcast and loved Sara Blakely’s story. Granted, I don’t care much for her product, Spanx, but I was impressed by her founder story. She is delightful to listen to.
Given the upcoming US election here on Tuesday, I could most certainly use some stress reducing tunes. According to Dr. David Lewis-Hodgson of Mindlab International the above song produced a greater state of relaxation than any other music tested to date. In fact, listening to “Weightless” resulted in a striking 65 percent reduction in participants’ overall anxiety, and a 35 percent reduction in their usual physiological resting rates.
Mortified is an event series where adults share their most embarrassing childhood artifacts (journals, letters, poems, lyrics, plays, home movies, art) on stage. Hear grown men and women confront their past with tales of their first kiss, first puff, worst prom, fights with mom, life at bible camp, worst hand job, best mall job, and reasons they deserved to marry Jon Bon Jovi. So incredibly entertaining.
Definitely subscribing to their podcast.
Today would be Michael Jackson’s 58th birthday, which reminded me of Man in The Mirror, one of my favorites, and a song more timely than ever.
The Great Animal Orchestra is inspired by the work of American musician and bioacoustician Bernie Krause. The exhibition, which brings together artists from all over the world, invites its audience to immerse themselves in an aesthetic meditation, both aural and visual, on an animal kingdom that is increasingly under threat. Put on headphones and dive in. Soothing!
