Hi Friends,

I’ll keep this short and sweet — have you voted yet? If you have, good for you! If you haven’t — what on earth are you waiting for? Please take a few minutes to get a plan over at That’s it! I believe in you. 🗳

PS: I would be remiss if I didn’t remind those of you looking for a slightly-spooky thing to do around the house with your loved ones that I created a little “print-out treasure hunt” that you can find here! 🕸🕷

This Engineer Built a Real 'Star Wars' Lightsaber That Burns at 4,000 Degrees

YouTuber James Hobson, aka The Hacksmith, recently constructed a realistic, retractable ‘Star Wars’ lightsaber, and documented it in a video now going viral. (Even if you’re not that into science, or if you’re not a diehard Star Wars fangirl / fanboy — the video is worth watching if you dig metal sculpture and / or retro design, ala “steampunk”.)

🎧 On Repeat

‎FEVER DREAM by Of Monsters and Men

I’m a sucker for a few things in life: fun-sized candy bars, Paul Rudd, & the soothing yin & yang of female + male harmonies. While this album can’t help me with the former two, it’s got the latter in spades. If you enjoy dipping your toes into Metric or the Yeah Yeah Yeahs — dive into the healing waters of this Icelandic quartet and let your cares melt away.
