This is a curated list of things that I like. Things I hope will last a long time and are a joy to use. Some things are old, some are new. Some are for sale for only a short time. Every week I'll add new things to the shop. Happy browsing.

Living Large In Small Spaces USD$4-$27: Beds that drop down from the ceiling. Pivting walls that form rooms. It's all in this seminal book on small-space living. It's real people in real homes, from 100 square feet to 1,000. By Marisa Bartolucci.
Join a Supper Club: Meet new people among good food and drink at a Supper Club. Supper Clubs are paid-for dining events at private homes. Illegal depending on where you live. The Guardian newspaper tells you how to start your own supper club. Or, join the Secret Dining meetup to find Supper Clubs in NYC.
Digital Photography, Intro for Beginners, USD$75: I have never used a DSLR, but I took this course and then started taking photos for this website. The school is called The Art of Intuitive Photography, and the focus is on getting you taking photos, with just enough of the technical info that you need.
Cabin Pressure, free: Beneditch Cumberbatch is the airline captain in this funny BBC radio 4 extra drama. In every episode they go to a new city, from Abu Dhabi to Yverdon-les-Bains, and all high-jinks ensue. The last episode is Zurich and is yet to be aired, but I, for one, will be sad when MJN air flies for the last time.
Redesign my Brain, free: Watch Todd Sampson, a normal, everyday man, learn how to perform three amazing feats (1) memorize a pack of cards (2) complete a successful art installation and (3) escape from locked chains underwater. Mind over matter. From the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, on YouTube.
The Entrepreneurs, free: I have just listed to 62 episodes back-to-back. This podcast has engaging interviews with entrepreneurs. From one person baking schools in London to a company making bullet-proof cars in Beirut. It will make you want to strike it out on your own, which is what happened to the original presenter. From Monocle.
