This Month I’m Reading: February

Last month we kicked this ‘feature’ off with a very mixed selection of books, this month is no different. I picked these four from Rick’s Book Shop on 4th Avenue, Parkhurst. It’s a secondhand book store, so if you spend enough time looking through the old shelves you are bound to find something interesting. I’m finishing off my final book from last month (as I said I get distracted often), so I’m going to need no less than two bags of coffee and an infinite playlist to get through these before the month is done.

adventure is a way of life

Garchois Films, the company behind ‘Rise‘ – a look at mountain people in remote places, how differently they use the mountains for things like skiing, and the people that seek out far off places, put together a very inspiring piece to bring in the new year, and get you planning your next trip. It’s a great piece, and it has be clawing at my arm rests.

Do More Of What You Love
 

Do More Of What You Love

The ‘do what you love’ conversation came up again last night, as I sat drinking with three chefs who had just finished their shift. They told me of their start, and how they got to where they are now (a damn good place to be). As with most people I know in a similar work situation, they got there in an unconventional way. They work themselves to near death, drink with the same determination, then go back for more the next day. A step and repeat lifestyle far too common among the passionate, driven people I know – often freelancers. It seems to work though, because everyday they’re doing more of what they love, and unless you are incredibly shit at what you love, there’s a general universal rule that you can make a living out of it. The below clip, a collation of thoughts from the likes of Mark Drew, Ronnie Fieg, Barry McGee,Dabs Myla, Geoff Lillemon, and Shawn Stussy, from Carbon – one of Australia’s premier contemporary design, style and culture events, speaks to this point. Of doing what you love. I especially love Shawn Stussy’s points on brand building.

My Issue With Online Dating Bios
 

My Issue With Online Dating Bios

Seeing as it’s the second week of February already, and last week I told you I’d be testing out a few online dating platforms, I thought I’d give you an update on the whole situation. The truth is, it’s not going very well. It’s the bios you see. I’ve managed to create an OK Cupid account name and password, but I’m stuck on step 2 – the profile photo bit. I signed up to Tinder, but that too has its drawbacks. It’s quite a commitment you know, being your bio.

My Message To Telkom
 

My Message To Telkom

As someone who has spent a fair amount of time in the online world, and done time as an online community manager, I know what it’s like having to deal with those idiots that slam brands across the digital platforms in order to get their way, or something for free. It’s too easy to get a response now, so the complaints are becoming increasingly trivial. There’s even an almost meme of humorous complaints to brands like Woolies. My point is, I don’t agree with 99% of the complaints people post. I think there are better ways to deal with whatever it is offline. We’ve all had moments of weakness though. Yesterday was my time. Telkom finally broke me, and I posted the below message on their wall.
