Next Thing Co. is quickly back at it, with DashBot. It's like having Knight Rider's Kit inside your car. They are running everything through their new upgraded CHiP and has the capabilities to do Alexa function, and got to love the price. I am really falling in love with this company.

The Hill - Literally just found this site, will have to vet it, but might be a good source for political news. (After the election I want to maintain active in understanding what is happening in this country)

Adidas Ultra Boost 3.0 are coming soon. I feel it coming soon. I can't stop googling up pics of some of the upcoming colorways.

A lot has happened in the last two weeks. Including the results of the 2016 election and the response due from that result.

The Act of Letting Go has been something been thinking about with every facet of my everyday life. What does it mean to let go, what does it mean to hold on? For this blog I have held on to 13 days of activities as well as emotions, and it is my choice to let go of the last 13 days and start anew.

Right now I am preparing for the new SAMPHA album by listen to is last EP, Dual, and the handful of singles he has released. I am really loving his sound.

On Youtube, I can't get enough of  'Just Between Us' - comedy webseries by Allison Raskin and Gaby Dunn, They are on point with their humor and filming style. I am trying to watch everyone of their sketch video, none of them have disappointed, all really good.

Off the Camera with Sam Jones - interviews Filmmaker / Actor, Mark Duplass.  If you watch the League you know his chops in acting, but the guy is a legit filmmaker. I have read his and his brothers thoughts on making film, it is amazingly inspiring through their pragmatic holistic approach.

Microsoft Surface Studio (ArchDaily) Watch the AD - M$FT is changing the game, I really don't think I am over hyping this. They built a beautiful machine that can change creative life of anyone in a graphical field. Their are probably other applications I am not even thinking about. In the video they show an ultra cool sci fi hollow view of it, almost as a joke. But honestly we are getting closer to the Minority report example of having multiple touch points, included with that new dial which looks like it could be very helpful onscreen or on the desk. All software developers will have to level up to start thing in terms of the dynamics this machine will bring. I hope it happens quickly and precisely.

comp, redesign of the classic composition notebook (kickstarter)- I want! When I started journaling like 10 years ago I felt I would have only used composition for that task, unfortunately after my first two  journals the build quality of composition books when super low, with crappiest of paper and the flimsiest of covers. This a refreshing design. (found via Swiss-Miss)

Run the Jewels - Talk to me (Hypebeast) - First single off their upcoming album, RTJ3, I love this group. If you ever have a chance to see them live, DO SO!

Common - Red Wine f. Syd (Okayplayer)

Low Leaf - Cleansing Incantation (Okayplayer)

Sporting Life On “Nothing To Hide” Ft. Dev Hynes + Wiki (Okayplayer)

Jonwayne Returns w/ Lush, Laid-Back Maxi-Single “40 Winks” (Okayplayer)

Jason Calacanis on Ask Gary Vee Show (Youtube) - Two of my favorite entrepreneurs answering viewer's questions.

Mr Ben Brown is back with his Visual Vibe series - ARCTIC

Google Arts & Culture - This is seriously a legit resource for all creatives. I orginally gawked at their previous attempt since it felt like google street view inside of a museum, but now you get to vibrance of the art much larger and well categorized. (via Swiss-Miss)

Did Apple just figured out how to integrate touch into their laptops, oh wow. I am using the Lenovo X1 Carbon with a touch bar and it is the only thing that make me want to upgrade this computer. Apple implementation looks stellar, I still not sold people will use frequently, but I am not sold people use the touchscreen on their Windows computer much. Its really only good for pinching/zooming, and scrolling while your read. After that the touchscreen doesn't get much play, but guess what it is awesome for scrolling while you read, so it is worth having on every new computer I purchase. (No Link Needed)

The video with the guy djing on Macbook Pro looks cool but it honestly a little silly. Current trend for music production has been getting further away from the screen. Abelton, which makes Live one of the most popular music creation software has a full-on physical interface call the Push, and one of the buying points is that you don't need to look at your monitor anymore to get the same level of work done.

Officially #Boosted, just got a pair of Triple White Ultra Boost. Very comfy

Shinola X VPI The Runwell Turntable - Probably oneof the most legit turntables I have seen. No levitating gimmicks or bluetooth. Just  strong precise craftmanship and machinery. This deinfitely an object to admire. 

Loop Digital Frame - this type of product I have thought on a lot. I have been suprised someone hasnt crack the code to getting people interested in digital frames. I feel like this is probably the best attempt I have seen. If I was married with children, I would make sure that every grandparent had one of these and I would be sending pictures direct constantly to it. (On another thought I really want to focus on printing out the photos I take.)

Teddy Aka the BoostGod Aka OhitsTeddy was interview by FootwearNews - They give brief run down on how he got into collecting sneakers as well as his growing presence on the internet

Just wrapped up watching the new Max Landis show starring Elijah Woods - BBC America's Dirk Gently Holistic Detective Agency - Pilot (Youtube) - Such a crazy show, I am just so curious to see what other surprises Max throws at his viewers.
