VERY FAR OUT

Far Out was another one to remember. We took it underground for our most recent Wine & Bowties party. Bringing together an assortment of DJ’s in Yung_smh, Starter Kit & Sad Andy, we brought the vibe back and then some.

Mark Jenkins on the power of street art: “There is opposition, and risk, but I think that just shows that street art is the sort of frontier where the leading edge really does have to chew through the ice.

THE ARCHER FISH

Perhaps the cousin of the Pistol Shrimp, the Archer Fish is one of nature’s most precise hunters. Eying its target from underwater the Archer Fish can shoot it’s prey from up to 2 meters away, expertly targeting land based insects for their daily meals.

Did you even know raspberry was raspberry though? Up until today, I thought it was just a rasberry. Nonetheless, raspberry’s go. […]

While I do consider myself grateful and blessed after making it through 17 straight years in school, I feel as though there’s a lot that needs to be changed about our educational system. In short, I think it revolves around the process of learning. School makes education so incredibly painful, that no one wants to […]
