Week 1

Every Monday for the past 20 weeks I've sent a newsletter to everyone on my email list talking about some of my favorite things.  Things I recommend you checking out for yourself.  Everything from music to food to clothing and fashion to phone apps to books.  It's been a really fun thing to put together each week and I'm just barely starting to feel like I'm catching on to how I want to format these things.  

If you aren't on the email list and you'd like to be, you can sign up HERE.  

Below are the first newsletter I sent out... Week 1 of recommendations.  To save some space I've taken out the graphics & slimmed things down a bit so if you've been getting the weekly emails, you'll notice they are a bit more flashy.  But for those of you that are new, hopefully this gives you a decent idea of whats been going on.   


I'm a big fan of podcasts. One of my favorite is by a guy named Tim Ferriss, you might have heard of him.  Each week (on Friday's) Tim sends an email to his subscribers talking about a few things that interested him that week.  It talks about everything from music to investment opportunities to movies.  Everything under the sun pretty much.  I've enjoyed getting the email so much I thought I would... completely rip off the idea.  I'm going to put my own spin on it but just to give credit where it's due, I totally stole this idea.  I hope you don't mind.

Every Monday I'd like to get in the habit of checking in with you and sending out a list of 3-5 things I thought were interesting that week.  Hopefully you'll find them interesting too!


Check him out on iTunes or YouTube.  He's playing some of the best new music I've heard in a very long time.  His voice is insane and the songs are fantastic.  Give "Best Fake Smile" "Craving" and "Hold Back the River" a shot.  You're gonna love it!
I'm not quite sure how to describe Casey Neistat.  
He's a brilliant film maker on YouTube.  He has 100's of videos on his YouTube Channel, each one better than the last.  Everyday he puts out a daily Vlog at 8am EST.  I'm addicted and have been for the past couple years.  Honestly, you can spend hours watching this guys work.  He's incredibly inspiring and the future of online video content in my opinion. Check out "Make it Count" "Bike Lanes" or "My New Wallet" Those are a few of my favorites but seriously, he doesn't have a bad video.
When it comes to clothes, jeans and a t-shirt do the job perfectly for me so I hardly sway far from it.  I get asked a lot what brand of t-shirt I'm wearing so why not spread the love here.  James Perse makes (hands down) the best t-shirt on the planet.  The fabric, the fit, the quality... the best of the best in my opinion.  Whether you're looking for a crew or v neck, man or woman, these guys get the job done.  No logos, no radical prints, just a comfortable, great fitting shirt... just the way I like it!  These make a great holiday gift if you're on the hunt.  They last forever and the more you wear them the better they fit/look.  Check them out online or at Bloomingdales and some Nordstrom stores. 

That's all for Week 1.  I hope you dig the suggestions!  Let me know what you think of James and Casey!  

Happy Holidays!  Hug your family.
