On the Dial | Small Towns in Iowa

Design of the Week | Flying Lotus - Never Catch Me ft. Kendrick Lamar

I am currently along for the ride on Masande Ntshanga's U.S. book tour for The Reactive. Last Saturday, we were exchanging and discussing music videos in our hotel room over some classy-shitty American beer. He showed me the beautiful and redemptive video for the song, "Never Catch Me."
