I watched the video for Caroline Polachek’s “Door” after my friend Kyle texted it to me with the words “this video is insane”. “Door” is “another girl in a sweater” chasing a person who treats their love like an impenetrable maze of doors. And our girl will always be there when one of those doors open. I can’t help but love this song intensely, maniacally. The video is wildly unique—it’s hypnotic, beautiful and everything is executed with care. The mirrors in the bedroom! Watch to fall in love and make something good.

It’s no big surprise that I love books and talk about them pretty often, so a video on books is to be expected. In this video I share books that I’ve read recently and new ones I’ve picked up. Please share your recommendations in the comments (here or on the actual video); I can never get enough.
