Let's take this outside.
Cabin music. Cabin vibes. Bring on the cabin weather.
Perception and vision are not one in the same. Believe in a little mystery.
Use the time you have been given.
Let go, let's go.
Nature loves courage. You make the commitment and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles. Dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up. This is the trick. This is what all these teachers and philosophers who really counted, who really touched the alchemical gold, this is what they understood. This is the shamanic dance in the waterfall. This is how magic is done. By hurling yourself into the abyss and discovering it’s a feather bed.

Dutch design firm Yalp has let loose an array of public DJ booths in an aim to give young folks an opportunity to be creative and social in a positive outdoor environment.
When we came across this innovative idea, we wanted to share, as we believe in many of the tenets that the Fono Project stands for.
In the Mix writes- "[The aim is to give] young people access to a simple (and free) DJing set-up. ‘Fono’ can be found in several parks and public spaces in The Netherlands, Finland and Denmark. All you need is a library of music on your smartphone to get started."

We love to share creative people's work on our blog. We hope it keeps the creative conversation going in your head, we hope it inspires.
Wknd co-owner, Jason Joyce, weighs in-
"When I came across this article on Australian sculptor Ron Mueck I was figuratively floored. His work is quite unlike anything I have ever seen."
"Ron's "people" create a whirlwind in my head. His work tells stories even grander than some of the massive pieces he makes. The tiny details, the looks, the positions of the sculptures are the first lines in a novel. I know his "people" are sculptures but they are so visceral that I have to remind myself that they have been created by someone's hands. When I look at them I begin to create the back story, start to spin the details that led each person to the exact moment when they've been voyeuristically captured by Ron. And that to me, is the true purpose of art- to spark otherwise unprovoked thought and emotion and send one into a creative tizzy of their own."

We here at the WKND Camp have been longtime fans of OK Go's creative spirit, DIY entrepreneurial attitude and the damn good music they make. They're back with some new tunes and a forthcoming album, and they've done it again with their eye-boggling new music video.
"Baby we both know that's not how it's supposed to be."
We here at Weekend Society believe in collaboration. It's in our mission statement, it's what we strive to do with other creative entities, it's in our daily work at the office. So when we came across this "short" documentary about a band we've respected for quite some time, we felt apt to share it with you. Their history is quite interesting, and not at all what most people assume it to be. Grouplove's story is one that breaks the conventional mold of pop bands today and shows the value of collaboration and stepping outside your comfort zone.
We've had the chance to interact with a few of the band members and can confirm that they are indeed the same spirited, creatively old souls as they appear to be in this film. So, sit back, relax, listen to (and watch) some good tunes and learn a thing or two.
The concert documentary "I'm With You" follows the band Grouplove as they play a series of shows in NYC around the release of their new album. Weaving live music with documentary scenes, the film traces the history of the band and explores the unique interpersonal dynamics that make the group so special.
I do believe in an everyday sort of magic — the inexplicable connectedness we sometimes experience with places, people, works of art and the like; the eerie appropriateness of moments of syncronicity; the whispered voice, the hidden presence, when we think we’re alone.
