monthly distractions

What are you doing this weekend? Tonight I'm headed down to my cousin's wedding and then plan on spending the rest of weekend watching season two of Chef's Table. In the meantime, here are some links from around the Web that I enjoyed this past month. Enjoy the loooonnnnng weekend!

1. The latest music video from dear, old Adele was released earlier this week. It's awesome and dizzying. Watch above.
