FLASHBACK FRIDAY: 5 THINGS THAT DIDN’T LACK AT ALAC // Art Los Angeles Contemporary

FANTASTIC // PSYCHEDELIC DESERT DRIVE MUSIC

When I pressed PLAY to listen to FANTASTIC’s new single, I wasn’t sure where I was going to go with it.  It took me on a sound scape of mountains being gently kissed by the sunrise of pink and purple scented clouds just as the last bit of essence of the night sky disintegrated into the morning dew. […]

125 YEARS OF NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC // ANNENBERG SPACE FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

Only out of desperation to fill a grouping of blank pages did they turn to still photographs, printing their first in 1889. Although the scientific community pushed back (fearing that the addition of pictures would […]

WORKAHOLIC // CHARLIE HABEGGER

After hearing nonstop rave reviews about Handsome Coffee Roasters from caffeine-obsessed friends, I approached this young, LA-based team of coffee connoisseurs to donate product for our Happiness Issue launch party. They did, everyone loved it, and I’ve been hooked ever since. Here at the Work Magazine, one of our favorite things to do is to […]
