Childish Gambino

Childish-Gambino-Sober

I’m a big fan of Community, Dan Harmon’s ridiculous community college set show, which is about to debut for a sixth season. One of my favourite characters was Troy (who has since left the show), played by Donald Glover, and I was completely unaware until late last year that he’s a really talented rapper who goes by the stage name Childish Gambino. I’ve been listening to anything I can get my hands on but the 2013 album ‘because the internet’ is far and away some of the best music I’ve heard in years. The track ‘shadows’ is a particular stand out. If you’ve got Spotify, which frankly if you listen to music is a necessity, then you can browse his artist’s page here. Otherwise, watch the video below for Sober.

DropChef

DropChef

I’m pretty rubbish when it comes to cooking. I’ve got a couple of staple dishes that I’d cook up during the week but I wanted to branch out. One of my mates mentioned a service called DropChef and it piqued my interest. You sign up to the service and they’ll deliver ingredients and instructions for 3 meals to you every week. Delivery is included, all of the ingredients are fresh and you can skip weeks and cancel at any time.

I signed up early last month and have been eating much better since, along with sharpening the culinary skills of course. You can have a look at a couple of the dishes below. For me, a service like this is about top notch customer service and the quality of the ingredients. In the case of DropChef, they’ve both been exemplary. I really like their Cook One-Feed One link up with Valid Nutrition too. If you’re cooking for one, plans start from €29.85 and there’s ones for couples and families too.

A stunning short film by animators Carl Beauchemin, Thomas Chrétien, and David Forest at Lightning Boy Studio. No wonder it’s won so many awards on the festival circuit. Watch it below.
