Today’s breakfast

Chinese cabbage soup for breakfast? Yes please.

I spotted this foodie Instagram feed through a friend and have been obsessed with it ever since. It’s basically what happens when Japanese graphic design meets Western breakfast, a sweet serving of decorative dishes. While I’m taken with the variety Kei (the chef) serves up, I’m mostly impressed with how she arranges each and every breakfast. Just delightful.

Work up an appetite. Follow her on Instagram.

Our April 2014 mixtape

Some songs on this mixtape reflect on how we’re often wishing our lives could be different instead of making things happen. Let’s enjoy some tracks from Mac Demarco, The Clash, Future Islands (and more), but then go out there and make shit happen. And oh yeah, the first four people to email us with their mailing address will get a surprise in the post (all spots taken). What are you waiting for?

p.s. Not seeing a cassette tape? Head here you mobile consumer you.

Murakami’s music

At least three of us are big time Haruki Murakami fans, so we were thrilled to find that software development company Decor put together a user-generated site (Murakami’s music) listing and streaming all the songs referenced in the Japanese novelist’s books. You can sort tracks from each book or by genre/title and contribute anything that’s missing. It’s a fun project we’re glad exists because it makes for some great afternoon listening. By the way, how stoked are you for Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage?

Co-working meets active fitness. I couldn’t be more excited about this venture from Brooklyn Boulders

One the highlights of last week’s PSFK Conference was getting turned on to Brooklyn Boulders and how they’re revolutionizing co-working. Combining active fitness and creativity feels like a natural progression and BB’s Somerville location has absolutely nailed it with their Active Collaboration Workspace. Watch this video and be prepared for serious amounts of envy.

Poster Pairings: No Plan

We beat ourselves up over things not going according to plan, but the truth is it seldom does so why let it bother us? I’m not saying never plan or prepare, but learn to be okay with your plans getting bent out of shape or being completely shattered. I know for me, all the best parts of life weren’t planned at all. And I think that’s what makes life worth living – we don’t know what’s going to happen next. This edition of poster pairings is a print from our pal Chris Piascik with a fitting tune from Oakland musician Spencer Owen.
