Blue Berry's from a recent 29andhungry blog shoot

Required Reading is a weekly listing of all the bits of visual inspiration, cool videos, news, hip links, and miscellaneous information that rattles my head during the week. The stuff that’s worth bookmarking and gets my brain-juices flowing.

I was convinced to finally see Castaway on The Moon after being told many times that it was one of the best films to come out in the past few years, luckily it was recently added to Netflix Instant Watch, and I must say… It did not disappoint – from premise to execution I found it utterly fascinating.

While Vice can sometimes be hit and miss, I often find some really compelling photo essays and interviews about  unique projects in their pages. This series of portraits that focuses on the children of Russia’s mega rich by Anna Skladmann.

A short statement about negative and snarky attitude dominating the landscape of creative industry forums and tweets, I find the closing quote perfectly sums up this often prevailing attitude of viewing everyone and everything as competition ““Rudeness is the weak person’s imitation of strength”

The nerd in me can’t not post this – retro video game ads. Some of the greatest/worst things ever.

I am in love with this slate cheese board… mainly because I have the ulterior motive of wanting to use it for shooting some fun little projects with my iPhone over the coming weeks for Erin’s 29andhungry project, which is where the above images of the blueberries comes from.

No doubt about it – this is just about the coolest watch I have ever seen.’s interview with Ed McCulloch on creating a directors reel from scratch. 

Seth Godin boiled down to a few simple lessons. 

Another cool workday mix from the 99% – Stay Hungry Stay Foolish. 

An essential article for anyone who, like me, is an unrepentant (or struggling) organizational nerd – The art of the to-do list.
