    1. Earth Day is in April, but no one is stopping you from celebrating it early. Check out this video of artists creating skateboards from the trash they find in dumpsters as part of a series documenting makers and doers repurposing everyday materials to create something new. 

    2. We're enjoying this interview on FVF with photographer (and UO friend Clement Pascal). See some of Clement's work for the blog here and here.

    3. Want to help name features on Pluto as they're discovered and mapped? Well, you can totally do that here

    4. Instructables is a great website that gives you DIY instructions to make almost anything yourself. From reclaimed wood desks to croque madame sandwiches, the world is your DIY oyster.

    5. If you're really into going to concerts but have trouble finding new bands to see, this website creates playlists from Spotify of artists playing live in your area within the next week. Works for us!

    6. The Late Late Show has been killing in it the first week with new host James Corden. From car karaoke with Mariah Carey to doing a skit of every Tom Hanks movie in 7 minutes, we're excited for what's coming next!

    7. You like Big Macs? You like fashion? Well, now you can show off both. McDonald's is releasing a line of clothing with Big Macs emblazoned everywhere. We're holding out for the hope of a FW15 Adidas x McD's collaboration.
