“If I could have @lulitonix every day for the rest of my life, I would never crave other foods: the distinct flavors, textures, & variety. Of all the juice cleanses I’ve done this one is hands down the easiest, best tasting, & most filling. Basically I’m in love & there’s nothing I can do about it!;)”
Congrats to lulitonix on this!

A good read from Reed Hastings in this Open Letter.

The best article I’ve ever read about consumer thinking toward music moving forward. This paragraph above was hard to read as as ’80s child weaned on MTV, but it’s completely true.
