What's making me happy 2016-08-30

By Nat Welch

Ok, so I actually broke my blog this week, so I couldn’t post my #happy post until I fixed it. One of the downsides of artisanal web apps: it’s your fault if they break. But we’re back, so I’m back!

In my oppinion, the more parks the better: President Obama Designates National Monument in Maine’s North Woods.

I found S4E4 - Tokyo Fashion Trip to be a lot of fun. It’s a discussion from the Penny Arcade staff on a trip to Tokyo and researching the fashion there.

DJ Shadow feat. Run The Jewels - Nobody Speak is one of the best music videos I’ve seen in years. It’s so good!

Thanks to What I liked 2016-08-14, I read two great articles:

@xlr8r released a single zip containing all of their episode 450 mixes, which is amazing. I’ve had it on loop almost all week.

Now for the fun part.” is the next step in Mozilla Open Design, which has been fun to watch. I’m not a fan of their designs, but it’s a cool process to see evolve.

Gregory Porter: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert is absolutely beautiful. It caused me to buy two of his albums.

The Art of Japanese Cuisine in Austin: The Sushi Chef with Tyson Cole is a neat look into the background of a chef. I love videos like this. If you enjoy this film, you’ll probably really enjoy Chef’s Table.

I had a blast with @mel_cantrell seeing Manus X Machina at the Met. It’s open for a few more days, but if you can’t make it, here are some of my photos.

What We Know About the Cyberattack on Democratic Politicians” is a nice timeline of the cyberattacks from this presidential election.

I’ve been using Fabulous to try and improve my habits. Tinygain looks to also be helpful, but for now, I’m sticking with one tool that’s working well.

Learning how to make introductions online is pretty important. The Medium article, “This is how adults make email introductions” is quite a good primer.

I hope you have a great week!
