The Post About The Rabbit Recommends v.109

Each week or so I post a readable or watchable and/or a listenable of which I'm fond. You can choose what happens after my recommendation. Ignore, embrace, debate. Earlier volumes of The Rabbit Recommends can be found here.

My family is always kind enough to indulge my mediocre habits by eating cake pops, modeling for photo shoots and reading this blog. One way they doted on me at Christmas was gifting me with a subscription to Popular Photography magazine. After 3 meager issues, my judgment call is...swoon. Whether you are a less-than-amateur like yours truly or a pro, it's a handy resource. It's been a perfect guide to equipment, software, how-to, and inspiration. It's also pushing me to bring my Instagram photos of Cheez-its to the next level of artistry.


I know I might be beating a dead horse by asking you to watch Invisible Children's video/movie about Joseph Kony especially since it's been the chatter of The Internets all week. But I'm asking you to watch for a reason chased by a disclaimer. I attended a conference this week where the editor of The Chronicle on Philanthropy shared research that Generation Y/Millenials are the most generous generation both in volunteer time and dollars based on their current meager earnings (Mark Zuckerberg is a delightful outlier.) This video simply serve as more evidence of that truth. Now for the disclaimer: I am a big fan of Invisible Children but I AM disappointed by the percentage of dollars that goes to work on the ground in Africa (less than 33%). Support IC in word and deed and then consider giving your actual cash to organizations such as Samaritan's Purse, Charity Water, or Mocha Club who have a impressive reputation of putting almost every dollar into direct service. Learn more about any nonprofit's "financial credibility" by visiting Charity Navigator.

This week I have all kinds of musak on repeat in Spotify. Have I mentioned I don't buy music at all anymore because of that delightful little service? Love.

Where We Meet by Tyrone Wells. I discovered Tyrone when he popped up on my Dave Barnes Pandora radio station. Pandora thought I might like him. I did. I do. His newest album does not disappoint. This is one of my favorite tracks: I Can't Save You Now.
