Got the Monday blues? Here's an inspirational video by Ira Glass that tackles creativity and the gap involved with it. Have a look. You won't regret it!
Ira Glass, of This American Life fame, is known for his radio work and in our case, his inspiring words regarding creativity. In this video, videographer frohlocke delves into a snippet of one of Glass’ musings about the gap between one’s taste and one’s skill. For creatives like us, this gap seems like an insurmountable hurdle, a goal that we can only see but can’t touch. Glass explains magnificently how this gap works, and how you can bridge it closer. This was geared more towards the art of writing, but what he says is more than relevant to our particular field. Enjoy!
It's been a boiling, scorching, baking hot summer here in the Philippines since March, and believe it or not, I haven't been to the beach yet. I'm going to do something about that, but not without making another playlist for the trip! This time, I decided to make a mix inspired by the summer vacations of my younger days.

There's a lot that you can do with a Lomo LC-A+/Lomo LC-Wide and a Krab, besides the obvious (which is take it in the water with you).

Inspiration comes to us in different ways, in various forms, sometimes in unexpected ways. I've always been interested in the workspaces, processes, and things that inspire artists around the world, so I really enjoyed watching the short documentary detailing the creative world of a Venetian artist called Zaira.
They're among the first things we see in a movie, yet they're also among the ones that we often overlook. For this week's dose of inspiration, we'll have a look at a number of lovely, elaborate movie titles from yesteryears.
There are just days that you feel you’re colored black and blue. But somehow, you can still see beauty in the most unexpected moments. This series of photos from Silvia Grav silently communicates a tornado of kept emotions.
Once again we rely on good ol' history for that much-needed dose of inspiration to start the week with. This time, amazing circus girls take the spotlight through photographs by an equally talented female photographer, Nina Leen.
Judging by the design alone, this panoramic camera looks every bit the panoramic camera it says it is. What's special about it is not the fact that it shoots on 120 film, but rather it was handmade at a home workshop.
