Give 'em a click to help yourself ease into your work week and don't be shy to share some of your recent faves in a comment down below.

Yeah yeah yeah, it's the first day of the week and all that...more important, it's the first installment of a rather straightforward new series where we share things from the Internet we've recently been digging.  Give 'em a click to help yourself ease into your work week and don't be shy to share some of your recent faves in a comment down below.

  • Kelela's new album Take Me Apart is a must-listen.  Afrofuturist, deeply personal, glitchy R&B for an internet age on the brink of apocalypse.  When all else fails, dance.
  • Make sense of your stars with this  astrology account that doesn't skimp on stunning visuals.
  • Remember Reading Rainbow?  Ever feel pangs of nostalgia for LeVar Burton's soothing voice?  Good news: he has a podcast called LeVar Burton Reads.  It's just as it sounds:  LeVar picks a piece of short fiction and reads it aloud to you.
  • Photographer Vincent Ferrané's portraits of his breastfeeding wife feel intimate, reverent, and real.

  • Don't forget joy: our bop of the week is a dancey YACHT remix from 2010.  Does 2010 count as the good old days?
  • A short and sweet documentary focused on a group of high school Riot Grrrls ostracized and dubbed the "Dirty Girls" by their classmates in 1996 Los Angeles.
  • If you work in a remotely creative and/or digital field, this tongue-very-firmly-in-cheek post on McSweeney's might tickle your funny bone like it did ours.

Seconds To Some

To prepare for our seconds sale coming up this Saturday at our new production space on Short McDowell, I chatted with Amanda, East Fork potter and Production Manager, about quality control.
