In the past I posted about the Selgas Cano office and now I could not let the new Facebook Headquarters pass by.
Studio O+A transformed an old lab facility into a modern, colourful and cozy place to work. Absolutely awesome!
Múm (pronounced “miooyyuujm”) is an amazing band from Iceland, their music is a combination of vocals, keyboards, trumpet, drums, melodica and other instruments. They just released their 5th album called Sing Along To Songs You Don't Know.

Suzan Choy is an illustrator living and working in Brooklyn, NY. I love the fact that she gets inspiration from daily things such as sandwiches, Tina Fey, 30 Rock, monograms, humidity, laundry, NYTimes Science Times and microns as she explains in her awesome sketch blog.
Note: Suzan is pronounced as Suzanne and not Susan, Susanna, Suzy or Suzie Q!
I always like discovering small, new places that really make an effort to add that little extra when it comes to the more simple things in life, like getting a cup of coffee or enjoying a nice meal. It's even more fun to discover places while travelling, you can learn a lot about a culture and its people. While in Barcelona, I came across a few amazing places and there are a couple that stood out.
Chelo is a small, charming coffee place situated on the beautiful Plaza Vicenc Martorelli. For what it lacks in size, it makes up in quality with great coffee and sandwiches. It's the perfect place to sit back and relax after touring the beautiful streets of El Raval.
Lilipep is a great place, hidden in a tiny side street in the El Born neighbourhood. The only way you'll find it is either by knowing where to look or stumbling upon it while being lost.
BarcelonaReykjavik is an amazing bakery full of freshly baked bread using only the finest ingredients, focusing on the art of making bread.
Although Barcelona has plenty of great restaurants (and tapas bars!) Carmelitas is one that stood out for me. It's not expensive, the atmosphere is great, the staff is very friendly and helpful and the food is amazing. All ingredients are sourced from the local market and farmers and the menu will often depend on what is available at the market.

London based photographer Dan Tobin Smith takes some amazing still-life photographs, often making clever use of perspectives. I'm obviously not the only person who admires his distinctive style as he's worked with clients such as Visa, Nike, Absolut and most recently, the new Jay Z album The Blueprint 3.

Bored To Death is an upcoming offbeat comedy series set to premier on September 20th on HBO. Jason Schwartzman stars as writer Jonathan Ames, who, due to his girlfriend leaving him and generally being bored of his life, decides to moonlight as a private investigator. The show also features the always funny Zach Galifianakis as Jonathan's best friend Ray and Ted Danson in the roll of Jonathan's boss George Christopher.
I had the chance to check out the first two episodes yesterday and the show looks pretty good. Take a look at the trailer here and judge for yourself.
