Let the March Madness begin! Who are you rooting for?
My team is always the Texas Longhorns…even if, lately, they haven’t been “contenders.” Win or lose, I bleed burnt orange! Speaking of the University of Texas, watch out for me at SXSW Interactive this weekend. I’m looking forward to scarfing down as many breakfast tacos as possible, all of the panels & workshops, and to all of the live music/events.
Colin has been reading a lot of books about start-ups and books about intellectual property – like the NOLO guide in addition to finishing “Thick Face, Black Heart” and “Adversaries into Allies.” He also is guilty of a “House of Cards” binge session and loves his “Shark Tank.” For the small business owners out there – would it be useful to you if your attorney had a lending library? What if you work out of a co-working space?
I am reading E&P Magazine Articles – exciting, I know! It kind of is for me, though. I am also still researching intellectual property issues – particularly those related to trademarks and copyrights – but also looking at requirements for Benefit Corporations (or Social Purpose Corporations), think of “Toms” as an example. It’s always good to stay current and there’s always more to learn! While reading has slowed down for me in the “read-for-pleasure” department, I *have* (insert: guilty face) been indulged in that “House of Cards” binge mentioned above and “Justified.” Sorry, books. I have been cheating on you with television. I’ll be better in March.
Colin has been digging Mac Miller, the Mary Onettes, and also been listening to some live Band of Horses via NPR/KEXP. We saw them at Sasquatch a few years ago and they were awesome.
My SXSW ramping has relied mostly on others so far (particularly hippohonk – check out their almost-too-extensive SXSW 2014 playlist on Spotify). This makes me feel slightly unprepared for SXSW but it all just sort of snuck up on me this year! I have been listening to a lot of Asaf Avidan, The Front Bottoms, The Mary Onettes, Vance Joy, Twin Forks and Warpaint. There is also the new Beck to listen to and countless other bands.
Colin also has been introduced to the joys of the HippoHonk playlist.
Do you have any suggestions for us? What should we put on our music and book list?
