VSCO x Gen Z

I’m digging this campaign from VSCO and AKQA that shares the stories of Gen Z artists and their creative challenges. It fits well with their diverse audience and I can definitely relate to the struggles the artists talk about in their creative journeys. It’s a very positive message to “consider, but not obsess” over what other people think. You should make it anyway.

Shaky Ground in San Francisco

Shaky Ground is a new comedy web series taking digs at everything that makes living in the Bay so frustrating, heartbreaking, and downright ridiculous. Episode 1 is now live with future sketches due regularly from writer Stuart Schuffman (Broke-Ass Stuart), comedian Drew Platt (Punchline SF & Laugh Factory), and director/musician Jared Swanson (Abbot Kinney). I’m excited to see where this goes. Sometimes it’s humor that brings us together and has us asking the important question of whether this is the future we really want.

Watch this to up your softball game

My co-ed softball got off to an 0-2 start this season, mainly because we were rusty as hell. That’s when I remembered those Tom Emanski instructional videos from the 90s. Got to love Fred McGriff’s acting and glowing endorsement.
