Loving: Passenger’s Scare Away the Dark

passenger scare away the dark

Well, I’m a little late to the party, but I just discovered Passenger’s song Scare Away the Dark, and it’s such a gem I thought I’d share it with you.

The video is such a fun interpretation of the song: The…

I’ll be making quite a few trips to the east coast this winter, so I’ve been thinking about gadgets that will make the cold weather a bit more bearable. It’s also become a bit chilly in Los Angeles (don’t laugh… it was in the 50s last week!), so I’ve finally been firing up the heater at home, and yearning for a bit more moisture in the air.  The cold weather tech below offers some surprisingly warm ways to keep you nice and…
