Moby (Richard Melville Hall), is an American DJ, singer, songwriter, musician, photographer and animal rights activist. He is well known for his electronic music, veganism, and support of animal rights.

Recently on his website he released a series of ambient recording designed to help people feel a great calmness. This is what he said on his website;

”Over the last couple of years i’ve been making really really really quiet music to listen to when i do yoga or sleep or meditate or panic. i ended up with 4 hours of music and have decided to give it away.

You can download it for free below or stream it on spotify, soundcloud, apple music, deezer, youtube & tidal. It’s really quiet: no drums, no vocals, just very slow calm pretty chords and sounds and things for sleeping and yoga and etc. and feel free to share it or give it away or whatever, it’s not protected or anything, or at least it shouldn’t be.

thanks, moby”

The world of photography and creativity changed forever when businesses and homes were introduced to the magic of Photoshop. A photograph that may have come out dull in color, was suddenly transformed into a full splash of hues. Artists everywhere took what their minds conceived and produced it with this innovative program.

It’s hard to believe Photoshop is celebrating its 26th anniversary. Today, when we look at photographs it is difficult to decipher if it came from a photographer’s click of the camera or manipulated from a computer. One thing is for sure, reality and fantasy have crossed the lines.

To mark the occasion we have compiled stunning images that will at times defy logic. It is up to you to decide whether the image is real or photoshopped.

Although parenthood can obviously be an exciting time, for both new and experienced parents, it can also be extremely challenging. Ask any mom or dad and they’ll enthusiastically agree.

Being a responsible parent requires lots of hard work, patience, and many sacrifices. Both fathers and mothers do their best to raise their child in a positive way. Each fulfilling their unique but equally important roles in their child’s upbringing.

What is unfortunate, however, is how dads and moms are treated differently, even when doing the exact same thing. There are a lot of unfair remarks and responses women receive, simply because they are moms, not dads.

Chaunie Brusie is a freelance writer and mother to 4 children. She has recently created a comic for the blog Babble, which focuses on parenting. In it, she showcases the different ways dads and moms are seen, and treated, in public.

The comic is a personal one, and Brusie draws inspiration from her own life experiences. She portrays scenes at the park, in the doctor’s office and at the grocery store.

Brusie explains, “[While there] are a lot of things I praise my husband for…[it] never ceases to amaze me how differently my husband and I are treated while out and about with the fruit of our loins. Whereas I am openly judged, questioned, or ignored, my husband has a virtual red carpet rolled out for him on the (admittedly) rare occasions he dares venture out in public with our kids.”

Take a moment and look at the comics below. I have spoken to a few of my female friends who are moms, and 70% find this to be something they can truly relate to. For the other parents, both moms and dads who have children of their own, do you find this to be an accurate depiction of reality?

It’s often argued that everything our ancestors did and said gets stored into our brains. Their experience and knowledge gets passed down from generation to generation. This may explain why we know or react to certain things without having any prior knowledge.

Kulning is an ancient herding call used in the Scandinavian region. The call is a high pitch tone that can reach long distances. The herding call sounds more like a haunting and sad melody meant to echo through mountains and alleys.

It was getting late and foggy on a magical night when Swedish artist Jonna Jinton wanted to try kulning. She wanted to find out if the animals would answer to the call their own ancestors heard when the women called them. Kulning might just be one of the most beautiful and enchanting sounds ever made.

The world is changing as we know it. We can communicate with someone across the world in a second, thanks to technology. And yet, today we are further apart from each other than ever before, even while physically close by.

Modern forms of communication has transformed the way we "connect" with one another. Still, we can argue we are more socially conscious than previous generations. Tomer and Asaf Hanuka are twin brothers and illustrator who love to put the realities of life through their art. Their thought provoking work will make you question whether the life as we know it today is actually better.

The definition of a superhero.
AsafHanuka
Do real-life heroes wear capes and tights running around fighting crime? Perhaps, they are the unsung warriors who are there to help anyone and everyone without expecting anything in return.

Power is the ultimate goal.
AsafHanuka
Climbing up the ladder is not always based on merit but who you know. It may be argued that it doesn't matter how you get to the top as long as you get there. You may want to tell that to the guy at the bottom.

The smile behind the stab.
AsafHanuka
There's not always friendliness behind a smile. Some people have mastered the art of showing you a facade of kindness while hurting you in the process.

If you could change your life.
AsafHanuka
Sometimes the life we dreamed of takes a painful and dark turn. And in those moments of quiet reflection, it is tempting to ask yourself would you do things the same way given a second chance?

Are you in the moment?
AsafHanuka
For decades we have viewed multi-tasking as a gift, a talent to brag about. Unfortunately, our attention is divided in multiple places that when it really matters, we are not really there.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and while the notion may be cliché at this point, it remains a universal truth, particularly in our current age of short attention spans and snack-sized wisdom. We want to know more, but we want it quicker, shorter, easier.

And so I could spend days writing about the ills of modern society – how disconnected we’ve become through technology, how consumed we are by material wealth, how sick and miserable our lifestyles have made us (just to name a few) – and hope that people take the time to read it. Some might, some might not. But the people who do may very well be the ones who are already informed, who already invest their energy into learning about what’s going on in the world.

Or I could simply let these images speak for themselves. I don’t need to preach to the choir (since you lovely CE readers comprise some of the very engaged and informed public to whom I referred).

These were created by Steve Cutts, an illustrator and animator working in London, and shared by Arch20 Magazine. And just to warn you, these are not for the faint of heart.

By Sarah Lazarovic

Intrepid journalist and artist Sarah Lazarovic traveled to the Women's March on Washington to march and meet the inspiring people gathered there. And while she was marching, she was drawing.
It was an amazing day, and one I’ll think about forever. Everyone wanted to talk, smile, share, and take photos together. This may have been because I was wearing a giant Tyvek jumpsuit and inviting people to draw on me—but only partially. 

It felt like the beginning of something, and I can’t wait to see that something. But first, a nap and a sandwich.



About the author

We’ve been fans of Peter Kogler’s psychedelic room installations since last year, when we he wowed us with his warped walls and trippy walkways. Now, the Austrian artist continues to bend time and space with a new series of impressively perplexing optical illusion rooms.

Using simple, intersecting lines and bold graphics, Kogler transforms the simple white walls and flat floors of galleries, typical transit stations, and ordinary lobbies into canvases for his optical illusions. Through busy, sketch-like visuals, Kogler plays with space to challenge perspective and alter existing architectural elements—walls bend, floors rise, and ceilings curve. Though entirely two-dimensional, his engaging and eye-catching designs invite viewers to interact with their surroundings and perceive their environments in new ways—if they don’t fall over first!

You can see more of Kogler’s creative work on his warped website. He also regularly showcases his swirling and spiraling spectacles in galleries across the world, so keep an eye out for his optical illusions.

Life after marriage isn’t always an easy road. In fact, rarely is it ever. Between children and work alone, we tend to forget how important it is to maintain the passion we once shared with our spouse. Sometimes, you may find yourself thinking about how simple, exciting, and passionate your love life was prior to marriage and wish that you could reverse time. It is true that when life takes over marriages may not always be as passionate. However, having someone you have reached a deep level of comfort with, can go to for support and rely on in even the toughest of times is more valuable than we realize.

1. You get about 1/4 of the bed but you never complain.

2. I have you willing to do the dirty chores so I don’t have to.

3. I have an appetite the size of you, and you love me for it.

4. I wouldn’t want to experiment with a homemade avocado mask in front of anyone else.

5. We have little people running around that are half me and half you.

6. Laundry is laundry, but I wouldn’t want to do anyone else’s.

7. Snoring is annoying, but I find yours most comforting.

8. Weekends at home are always more fun with you.

9. “Come over” is now “come home” and it’s the best feeling ever.
