Monday Morning Dispatch - Volume #200

Start your week off right:

  1. As we head deeper into October, soup weather is officially here. I discovered a great list of blender soups that you can quickly whip together.

  2. If you need new reading material, check out THE 100 BEST MAGAZINES YOU’VE (PROBABLY) NEVER HEARD OF.

  3. Cédric Kouamé discovered how the hot humind climate of Côte d’Ivoire worked its magic on these family photos. A fun collaboration between photographers and nature.

  4. I love the architectural drawings of Jae Cheol Park because they feel like scenes from futuristic sci-fi movies like Blade Runner.

  5. Austin Kleon’s great reminder that in order to be good at something, you have to be willing to be bad at it as long as it takes.

  6. “I’m willing to be bad for as long as it takes, until I’m good….I don’t have a sense of shame. I just don’t. If I’ve hurt someone’s feelings, if I’m mean to somebody, I’ll lament over that for days. I’m that dude. I’ll lose sleep over mundane stuff. But I don’t really have the thing of, “Oh, I’ve embarrassed myself.” I just don’t understand why I would stop trying to play piano even though I’m not good at it. I want to be good at it. So why wouldn’t I keep playing? “ Jason Segel

  7. Jack Delano was a photographer for Farm Security Administration traveling across the country during the 40s. They colorized his set of photographs of a Chicago rail yard.
