Manic Mondays: Against the Grain


(video via Black Eiffel)

To start off another busy week, here’s a video of Against the Grain, a track of Melbourne-based artist Hudson. The clip was made by Jonathan Chong (aka VJ Dropbear), featuring happy pencils come to life. This stop motion clip isn’t exactly new since its been on the internet for quite a while. But just in case you haven’t, check it out.

By the way, the song can be downloaded for free here.

On a semi-related note, I’ve been listening to a couple of playlists with songs that reminds me of Christmas and cafes. Apparently jazz songs and Christmas lights can make work feel a great deal more pleasant. In case you’re looking for a soundtrack for your week, take your pick between a moody bar with a glass of wine, a cozy cafe, and breakfast in Paris. If you know any similar playlists, do share.

Have a great, panic-free week ahead!
