Kai said this the other day. And while it’s trite to be the person bickering about all the cell phone zombies wandering the planet, we found that to be good advice. And since we spend so much time searching the stacks, snapping photos and talking with inspiring people, we thought we’d give you a glimpse at some things that that made us whistle “Beginning to See The Light” as we made Issue 4 (out next month).

After the jump is a a good afternoon’s worth of rad shit we doubt you knew existed.
Iggy Pop and Tom Waits in Coffee and Cigarettes: The subtle dialogue and awkward moments in this classic Jim Jarmusch movie. Ozzie Wright told us that he saw this in the cinema years ago and it remains one of his favorite scenes of all time.

Charlie Kaufman on writing: A scene from the Spike Jonze movie Adaptation. This is how I feel writing the intros for the magazine. Every single time.
