Turntable Kitchen (Curated food and music pairings — I dig this concept!)
From “Real Simple” article:
“Wine isn’t the only thing that takes some effort to pair with your meal. What about the perfect mood music? The website Turntable Kitchen has been providing meal and music pairings for a while, but now they are offering a subscription service.
For those that subscribe, each month you’ll receive a box with the following things:
- A limited edition 7-inch vinyl album with at least two songs
- A downloadable playlist with additional music
- A collection of themed, seasonal recipes to go along with the playlist
- A few hard-to-find, dry ingredients that go along with the recipes
- Notes on why the music and meal were paired together
- A few surprises, too!
On Apple’s homepage:
Apple co-founder Steve Jobs passed away yesterday, Oct. 5, at age 56. After being diagnosed with a rare form of pancreatic cancer, he lived for 7 more years to create the iPod Nano, iPhone & iPad and so much more. Leader. Visionary. Renegade. Inspiration. Legend.
Writer David Magee says “Steve Jobs made a big dent in the world. Steve Jobs was the greatest tech CEO ever” in this International Business Times editorial.
Before he edits his video on his MacBook Pro, musician David Choi shares his thoughts of how Jobs affected his life as an artist and leveled the playing field for all artists.
And I had to post Jobs’ June 2005 commencement speech at Stanford University, “How to Live Before You Die.”
“Gratitude, not attitude. “
–Kevin So, super talented & amazing musician at thatsexyasian.wordpress.com . I heard Kevin live for the first time late one night in Los Feliz several years back. Have to admire a person who is doing what he loves — and it showed. His high energy and passion for music set the room on fire!
I’ll never forget that night.
This week on NPR’s All Things Considered:
Had to share these songs! Nostalgic and refreshing at the same time.
A gamut of new and different, “beautiful and affecting” mood-setting songs. Nice!
