Pomplamoose is an awesome group and worth listening to for great music! Duo is not just fun and entertaining but also totally authentic and down to earth.
I strongly recommend this one hour feature documentary that my uncle Jorge shared – about a violin, two violinists, and a continent in ashes. Heartbreaking and redemptive at the same time. So much inhumanity. And so much humanity to counteract it. So much darkness in our human race. And so much light to stand up to it. So hard to bear, so poignant to watch.
Rock Star and KINDAHOLIC Grace Potter tells The Insider about her music and exciting new partnership with KIND. After being a longtime fan of KIND bars, Grace created her own Grace Potter Back Stage Snack Pack for the first Snack & Give Back Campaign. Grace designed her snack pack in order to remind people that eating well and doing good are key aspects of being a true ‘rock star.’ Purchasing her snack packs helps KIND support the Alzheimer’s Association, the leading, global voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care and support, and the largest private, nonprofit funder of Alzheimer’s research. For all her fans, Grace made sure to include in her snack packs a free download of her hit song ‘Stars’ as well as her four favorite KIND bar flavors, Peanut Butter & Strawberry, Almond & Coconut, Dark Chocolate Cherry Cashew + Antioxidants, Dark Chocolate Nuts & Sea Salt.

Paul McCartney has been a strong and steady voice in support of OneVoice and its efforts to achieve peace in the Middle East. In 2009 Sir Paul wrote a letter to President Obama to notify him of OneVoice’s work, and Sir Paul currently lists OneVoice at the top of his list of supported charities. We’re honored to be joined by Sir Paul in our efforts and are inspired by the way he uses his talents to bring people together.

This is one of the best ads I have seen in a long time. And I would say the artistry and creativity qualifies it for true art.
Lev Grossman wrote an excellent article in TIME on how recommendation engines work (ie, for Netflix movie selection, and for Pandora radio selection) and how they can start turning us into boringly homogenous & predictive blockbuster consumers of the same stuff within one safe space.
Alas, when it comes to movie choices, the options and parameters are so many, that suggestions I get are often unreliable.
