Lectored at Mass today: Sirach 35:12-14, 16-18 ; 2 Timothy 4:6-8, 16-18

Focus for the week: Being Proactive vs Reactive

Secondary focus: Helping others

The Arctic - (TimIntoTheWild / Youtube) - Tim is one of the main reasons I dropped using Canon and starting using Sony Cameras. The look and feel of his visual poems are amazing. It looks like he recently got a drone and he is killing it as usual with the footage.

Conversation between Kendrick Lamar and Rick Ross (GQ / Youtube)

Noisey Interview with BANKS (Youtube) - Love strong women, great conversation explaining the intensity of sharing yourself through your art.

Tengu: God of Mischief - Subway Skating (Youtube) - A film by Colin Read. Recently Colin released his latest skate video Spirit Quest

Clean web design: http://store.43magazine.com/product/koki-loaiza-ollie-pigment-print

Messing with this Chrome Extension I just found, TOBY - Seems like it can help me a lot with all the tabs I collect on my personal laptop and computer at work.



Black Mirror is back with Season 3 (Netflix) - 3 episodes down already, all the stirred emotions caused by this show. Highly Recommend (Warning: its can be too intense for some)

Trailer for Netflix upcoming series, BARRY (HighSnobiety) - looks interesting, its about the college days of our President Barrack Obama. Since the 'Social Network' there been emerging this trend of documenting someone current person life as a drama extremely early. Usually it felt you needed time, like decades to pass before creating these type of shows and movies.

Last night I was a kid again. It was my friend's 31st Birthday and he wanted a roller skating party. So we had a ball rolling around in loops and the old school roller skating rink that hasn't changed one bit since I walk into there in elementary school.

Daily check: http://www.highsnobiety.com/ - since becoming obsessed with the Adidas Ultra Boost i find myself on this site more frequently.

I ended up watching Spring per my friend's recommendation. And WTF, they definitely blindside you with what type of movie it is. I would definitely agree with my friend, if you do watch it don't do any research beforehand just jump and be surprised.



Focus this week: No Excuses

Received my 2nd shipment of Blue Apron. Last time I order it I felt was one of the most orderly weeks I had. Since I felt a slump especially with my eating choices, so lets see if my hypothesis is correct.

Run the Jewels 2 - Listening to this on Vinyl, I really needed the energy of this album tonight

Another album I am jamming out to tonight is FIRE! ORCHESTRA - EXIT!, so trippy so good!!! (Listen to Part 1 on Youtube)

This Week in Startups, Jason Calacanis interviews:

  • Shivana Siroya of Tala - Damn, she is sharp. I really can't wait to see the future for emerging countries because of the work she is doing with Tala
  • Unity 3D Co-Founder David Helgason - The are the engine powering most the 3d games on our phones. Apparently it is free and some what intuitive to work with, I am down to add another side project to my list.

BROKE (Youtube RED) - I was starting to get confused why I still pay for Youtube RED until I found this show. It is so hilarious and I like its bite sized sampling of ten minute long episodes. I really did enjoy Youtube RED's series Single at 30, but I couldn't help the fact that it felt less for youtube at the 25 minute length. Not something I could quickly watch during my brief lunch break at work. After watching BROKE I have more confident with Youtube honing their RED offerings.

James Altucher interviews  Doug Casey, On the the most interesting humans



Hypnotic music from Radiohead - The Numbers (HypeTrak)

This weekend was my Capoeira classes' Batizado - After a couple months of training I received my first cord.

lately I have been obsessed with the Adidas Ultra Boost. I want a pair badly. Especially an all white pair.

Action Bronson in the kitchen making the world's Best Sandwich (Youtube) The guy is legit, awesome rapper and additionally has a better appetite and palette for food

Film to add to my watch list: Kaili Blues

FreeFall Radio - Eclectic two-hour radio mix, if you want to hear songs and artists you are not regularly exposed to, this is a great resource. Check their mixcloud for the archive of shows

Still can't get enough with watching review for the DJI Mavic Pro - If I was sold before I am more than ever by Flitetest's review, it was a glowing review almost in every category.

My brother Kaytranda drops a remix for Solange's Crane In The Sky (OkayPlayer)

Pre-Order A Seat at The Table on Vinyl - and yes, I am already pre-ordered, I was hoping badly it was going to be press on some colored vinyl

Tim Ferriss's Evening Routine - Nice to see him getting into youtube. I got to step up my Night routine

Why am I so bearish on this? Levitating Turntable (Kickstarter) It looks sexy

Solarpuff: Solar-Powered Inflatable Cube - they need to be handing these out to everyone in third world countries. I love in the video where she refers to the need for individualized infrastructure, it is so well phrase and has me thinking on this idea, since in emerging countries large infrastructure are not being built.

Never watched Miranda Sings' videos on Youtube, but I am interested to check out her new Netflix series, Haters Back Off!

A night at the AI jazz club (TheVerge) I will have to read later, but the music embeds sound good and jazzy

13 Rising Female Artists You Should Know (HypeTrak) This list is legit, Etta Bond, Jorja Smith, Sevdaliza, Billie Black, Eryn Allen Kane, are all artists I been big fans of. I will have to check out the rest

Denzel Curry & Joey Bada$$’s “Zenith” Music Video (HypeTrak) ooo they are killing it on this track. I never heard of Denzel Curry before seeing him live last week at iiipoints. Joey i been loving his music since that Hillary $wank

Saturday I caught the music making bug and made a beat, Unfortunately I need a quick refresher in Abelton Live with programming drums.

6 Keys to Applying to a Fellowship - for later reading

Senior style in Japan – living the good life at 80 (Monocle)

Toby.Harvard (Instagram) loving his photography, will be checking out more

Chargaux - Lullaby (Youtube) one of my new favorite producers, Soft Glas, had his hands on this, I can tell.

MeLo-X talks about sound and inspiration (Hypetrak)

“It seems that two qualities are necessary if a great artist is to remain creative to the end of a long life; he must on the one hand retain an abnormally keen awareness of life, he must never grow complacent, never be content with life, must always demand the impossible and when he cannot have it, must despair. The burden of the mystery must be with him day and night.”
– Goethe  (Found via Swiss Miss / Deeper write up via BrainPickings)



Focus for the week - Patience

III Points 2016 -Back from Miami - Crazy good concert (Write up coming soon)



KAYTRANADA – 0.001% (Rappamelo)

Soft Glas - Late Bloom (Soundcloud)

JNTHN STEIN making a beat with Ableton Push 2

  • After the concert I was interested check out some midi controllers since I was sure both Machinedrum and Flying Lotus were doing everything through Abelton Live. I looked at a comparison video with the Ableton Push 2 vs Maschine, I was left think it was worth my time to dig deeper into the Abelton workflow instead of add another program on list. I found this video with JNTHN STEIN messing with the Push and give his philosophy on how to create a beat. I enjoyed it alot 



Season 3 of POWER on  Starz

  • What a wild show. that was one of the darker of the seasons, so much happen coming up to the season finale. The writers gracefully wrote themselves into a crazy corner. It reminds me of my winning strategy of playing Connect 4, which has me pushing my opponent into a position that either direction they go they are screwed. And not to mess up anything of this season, but that definitely the situation. Can't wait to see how they are able to solve this madding puzzle next season.
  • FYI. POWER is probably one of the most well written shows on TV at the moment. The way they pit the ambitions of your past with your present day construction is amazing. (I will clearify later, but just watch it if you into crime dramas, the layers of relationship complexities is great.)
