A Business Case for ‘Yo’: Cutting Through the Noise (by Titus Kimbowa)

With the risk of adding to the ‘Yo’ noise bubble, I will attempt to look at the business application of Yo. There are plenty of consumer applications.

What's On My Playlist: Fall 2014

Seasonal changes are a great time to switch up the playlist. I've been feenin for darker, moodier, sexier, more soulful songs to go with the tone set by these very rainy Seattle days we've been having. Here's what's on repeat as of late:

Seattle: Spa Week 2014 Lands at Hotel 1000 & More!

Looking for an excuse to treat yo'self? Spa Week is coming next week (October 20 - 26) and there's a whole slew services being offered at just $50 at different spas across the country. I had the chance to check out one of those services last month, enjoying an after-work Swedish massage at The Spahh at Hotel 1000 courtesy of Spa Week.

From the moment I walked into Spahh (in the basement level of Hotel 1000) to the moment I walked out a couple of hours later, it felt like a mini-vacation. I'd come in during a particularly stressful week; after work but before the post-work meeting I had to prep for a blog-related event. I was ready for that massage but the service was definitely icing on the cake. I snapped a few photos of my time there before and after my massage, and reveled in 60 minutes of bliss thanks to Autumn, my masseuse.

Look Inside: Seattle Art Museum's Pop Departures Exhibit

Not since the Picasso exhibit have I been so taken by a Seattle Art Museum feature exhibit. Pop Departures is opening tonight, and you're in for quite the treat, Seattle. Pop Departures curator Catharina Manchanda took us on a media tour of the exhibit, which highlights the work of American Pop Art icons Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldbenburg and Robert Indiana. My favorite piece is from New York artist Mickalene Thomas; 'Hair Portrait' is for sure inspired by Beyonce and Lauryn Hill although she won't say exactly who.

There's a packed calendar of events around Pop Departures and other new SAM exhibits this fall, including Takashi Murakami works at Seattle Asian Art Museum, talks from featured exhibit artists, Warhol movie showings and of course, SAM Remix. Hard to choose just a few favorites, but because I don't want to spoil the exhibit I whittled it down. Enjoy!
