Holiday Matinee’s May Mixtape!

We can’t believe it, but this month marks 2 years of monthly mixtapes. We’ve got a lot of new jams on this month’s mix, but you’ll still find a classic as well. Friendly Fires, Washed Out, FM Belfast and Fleet Foxes are just a few of the artists we’re pumped on right now.

Need my resume? Nope. Not when you got my FACTS!

I mean, who wouldn’t hire him? He fights crime on weekends, and he’s the son of a librarian and a Capricorn. [via BuzzFeed]

Funding dreams. This is why I love Kickstarter.

Kickstarter, I want to marry you. You’ve leveled the playing field, challenged us to be more creative in our marketing, and roughly 43% of the time, you’re funding our dreams. Yes, this makes me incredibly happy and the world is better off for it. Here’s to more ambitious endeavors taking flight.

Living in SF means…

If you live in San Francisco (or any city, for that matter), you know that with good comes bad, with beautiful comes ugly, and with rich comes poor. Heck, if you’re a twenty or thirtysomething who’s worked at a restaurant or befriended a homeless person on a drunk walk home, you know what I mean. I’ve been living in this city long enough to know that it’s passionate — passionate, but schizophrenic. In an awesome post for The Bold Italic, San Fran resident Broke Ass Stuart reflects on all this and more. Plus, there are some great graphics to go along with it.

It all makes sense.

Healthy reminders and the art of simplicity. Anthony Burrill is living proof of the age old saying less is more. New pieces up in his online shop today and you know these would look great in your apartment. Buy ’em here. (Shameless plug: A.B. is one of 25 creative artists, products and ideas featured in our book. But you probably knew that already.)
