the things i’ve discovered this week that are worth sharing.
The A-Z of Hip Hop | i-D
accurate and thorough.
Because of Them, We Can + Nickelodeon: Maya Angelou | YT
i love the ‘because of them, we can’ initiative. everything about it. previously, it’s been beautifully shot photos. this black history month, they extended to video and partnered with a bigwig. impossibly adorable, costumed brown children reciting famous quotes in their impossibly adorable brown children voices. i’m all about it. in addition to maya, there’s also a malcolm x and muhammed ali spot. i hope they’re able to extend this further next year.
Photoshop Before Photoshop | Mashable
pure photography eye candy from the turn of some previous centuries. makes me appreciate the past while also being extremely grateful for current technology.
How Will I Pay the Bills? | Austin Kleon
so relevant to my life.
Breath | Vimeo
an awesome short film.
Meet Morgan Rhodes, the Woman Behind the Spectacular Sounds of Selma | Essence Mag
“I had my list of cues and then she sent me clips for all of those cues and I would run maybe between 15 and 30 songs under each clip. I’d keep trying and trying to see what works and I’d submit my choices to her. We went from a couple thousands to a couple hundred to 14.” my dream job (one of many). she has it.
“50 Ways to Leave Your Lover” by Miley Cyrus @ SNL40 | YT
