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.
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.

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.
