Paco and the other men in the de Lucía family playing bulerías.
Rachel Price of Lake Street Dive singing “What I’m Doing Here”. One take. No auto-tune. Just enough singing to convey the story, nothing more. Kills me how good she is. I could listen to this forever.
There are so many powerful images and social media screen grabs going around about Ferguson right now. This. An account of help from a people struggling with an age old conflict in another part of the world have taken time from their days, their hours, their fear, their sorrow, their war, to send a little advice, help, and acknowledgment to ours.
This is powerful on so many levels. If you don’t see the correlation. Look again. What is happening all around our world is appalling. The USA is not the example we pretend to be.
Mind = Blown.
It’s wonderful to be hated by idiots.
Kim Kardashian is not a specific entity because no one knows her as the result of a specific accomplishment or skill; Kim Kardashian is an idea, and as such there is no singular group of people that are exclusively receptive to her brand. A huge percentage of the iPhone-owning population in Western markets knows Kim Kardashian (although many may struggle to understand why), and as such that huge percentage may be influenced by her branded image on a mobile game to an extent that very few other brands could achieve.
Additionally, because she is not known for any specific reason, many of the installs that led to Kim Kardashian: Hollywood ascending the Top Downloaded chart (and thus garnering a sufficiently large user base to propel the game into a top 10 position on the Top Grossing chart) may have been the result of sheer morbid curiosity — what could a Kim Kardashian game possibly be about?
Tom Quayle + Martin Miller - “Between the You and Me”. Nice little tune with some sweet playing.
"I want to study engineering at MIT. I’ve still got two years until I graduate high school, so I’m trying to learn everything I can. I’m a certified cable installer, and I’m also certified in fiber optic cable, but I still need my copper based systems certification. I practice making cables all the time. I can write the perfect essay telling you how to make cables, but I still need to work on keeping my hand steady. You need a very steady hand when you’re working with fiber optic cables. So for twenty minutes everyday, I work on balancing my tools on my hand, just like this."
I love this kid.
