2. World | Coffee EP

Singer Miguel warned us when he posted a snippet of himself on Instagram, living the futures lyrics to his forthcoming ‘Coffee’ on the three-song EP he released over the weekend. Its melodic, its true and my goodness, makes me want not just in the morning but all the time. Thankfully, this song can fill those shoes even when the coffee has run out. But, may that never happen. Sing on!

Good | World

In Good a magazine published for “the global citizen”, a collection of images by the British illustrator John Holcroft appeared on its site – its favorites.  In his efforts and the sites, these images are satire, looking at modern influencers on today’s culture. The image of above comments on obesity. I particular like how its subcommentary includes coffee. There’s much to say in media and in studies at large about the role of coffee to one’s health. And, with this image, might I say Mr. Holcroft has at least given us another image to pondering the on-going subject.
