Dan Buettner: How to live to be 100+

This TED talk is so inspiring, we just could not not share it. Dan Buettner reminds us that the small things in life matter. Take care of your body (move naturally and eat wisely) and your soul, use your brain (have the right outlook) and be part of a community…Find more inspiring talks on the TED website, here!

Bedouin Soundclash

So, the sun finally came out today after a couple weeks straight of gray skies, rain and snow. And here at the (echo)witness office we immediately put on some music that would reflect our euphoria. Bedouin Soundclash is one of the bands that never steers us wrong. They mix in a bit of rock and a bit of pop with an extensive knowledge and strong foundation of classic ska and rocksteady,  while keeping it true to the old-timey tunes we love. We have had a lot of requests for new music lately and while they aren’t a new band, they do deserve a bigger audience here in the states. Check ‘em out at their site, here.
