Short Film on Viola Maker Nicholas Frirsz

It’s always compelling to be able to share not only a beautiful creation with you, our readers, but a history and a heritage too. Which is why I’m rather eager to showcase the story of Nicholas Frirsz who’s a fifth generation luthier, someone who makes or repairs lutes and other string instruments.

THE SOURCE by E. Conor Hagen for Mast Brothers Chocolate

I’ve still got lots left that I don’t really want to consume, but it’s definitely nowhere near as nice as this chocolate made by the Mast Brothers. I don’t know how I missed this, since it’s over two months old, but it’s such an enjoyable video and was a perfect start to my early Friday morning …

The Art Of Time By Martina Chamrad

2011 Rapha NW Gentlemen’s Race

Another exceptional film from Rapha and their crew documenting the 2011 Rapha NW Gentlemen’s Race in Oregon. This course has a distance of 130 miles with various technical terrain on an uphill climb, 10,000 ft of climbing to be exact. Whenever these guys and girls release a film it’s always exciting, I don’t think there’s ever been a time where a series has been consistently produced in such a quality manner. I’m …

Not only is the majority of the coffee they sell shade grown which ensures healthy habitat for migratory birds, all of their beans come from fairtrade so they are helping …
