This is my favorite thing in the entire world right now. Nothing else matters except this music video.

"I want to make cars.""What’s the best part about making cars?""Seeing how fast they go.""What’s the hardest part about making cars?""Keeping them from exploding."

My pals Pablo and Malaya on humans of NY. I run with a pretty famous crew.

Confetti — Frightened Rabbit

A Lemonheads cover for you this morning. Hope you like it as much as I do. 

At the same time, remember that the New York you loved five years ago is gone, and the New York you re-learn to love right now will be gone soon too, and part of love means accepting change. This is one of the hardest lessons New York has taught me, but I’m grateful for it.

Mary Phillips-Sandy, What to Do If You’re Falling Out of Love With New York

This is so, so, so true.  I’ve thought about this many times, but couldn’t have put it so eloquently.  Time and time again, in big and small ways, New York challenges you to embrace change.  If you can do it, it leads to a really fulfilling existence.

Wintergatan - Starmachine2000

Great Swedish band that released their first album last spring. Make sure to watch the video through to see a “making of” the music box that plays prominently in the video.

China’s still unexplained “bacon apartment”

I’m not a big “business book” reader, but Clayton Christensen’s books have always intrigued me.  He lays out problems in simple, digestible ways. He reinforces his beliefs with well thought through examples and case studies.  He applies his beliefs across verticals and disciplines.  
I just finished “how will you measure your life” and it blew me away.  I started reading with a little trepidation as its essentially a self help book, but it really grew on me.  The scope is simple as he only attempts to answer three questions:
- how can I be happy at work?
- how can I develop deep personal relationships?
- how can I stay out of jail?
Not how I would have framed life’s big questions, but when you think about it everything is really there.  He doesn’t oversimplify these weighty topics but provides a great framework in which to think about these questions.
