Earlier this year, I took a singer-songwriter course at a local cultural institute, to improve my songwriting. Our tutor encouraged us to play in public as much as possible. Go to open mics, play family parties, play for your friends until they beg you to stop, and also: busk. I'm not here to give you busking tips though; I haven't got nearly enough experience for that yet. I just want to explain to you why busking is AWESOME, and why you should consider doing it if you play an instrument (or have other performance skills).

Artist Steve Thomas got spot on two things I love above all: early/mid-century design and geek stuff. Tolkien-themed posters, Fallout-style propaganda, Sci-fi travelling ads… It's like Christmas, but only better.
Longtime Homie Vacantmuse sent her artsy shelf moment our way. I love her idea of making space for an ever-changing art display. Could this be the first Monday Moment "great idea of the day" combo!? I think so.
WOW — here's the dreamy white and blue studio of Jinx in the Sky, filled with high-shine glass and vintage accoutrements. Enjoy!
I invaded another home: Dani's a designer/crafter/trash-TV fan, and Ken's a zen taxman. Come in and see what "quirky chic" is.
I invaded Rachel's house and gave myself a tour. When I showed up I sort of said, "How 'bout I just take photos and we'll see where this goes?"
It went awesome. You'll love it here.
