Issue #74 The Magic Stick
“April is the cruellest month,” penned T.S. Eliot in his poem “The Waste Land.” We’ve had a rocky start this past week with wonky tech issues, tardy newsletters, and too many french fries. So, we’ve hit the reset button and spring cleaned our way back to efficiency. Today’s list shares our hacks to undo the slack.

100% Editorial picks. No pay for play. Ever.
The Cook — Feeling better starts with eating well. Most of our cohort endorses the transformational powers of Whole 30 but if that’s too much of a commitment try these 11 Spring Cookbooks You’ll Actually Cook From.
The Book — Our friend, artist Kimberly Brooks, has designed The Creativity Notebook. It’s an analog, old school datebook, notebook, and sketchbook that also features Kimberly’s original paintings. There’s something comforting and motivating about using her system. Check it out.
The Prince — For those of us with kids, it’s Spring Break season, here’s a sweet and clever remake of The Little Prince starring Rachel McAdams, Jeff Bridges, and a magical score by Hans Zimmer. But kids or not it’s a movie that speaks to all ages, in other words #soperennial.
The Anthem — Every now and then an outrageous pop tune comes along that provides the perfect soundscape for getting dressed: Let’s Get French by Coco McQueen.
The Lab — One of readers, totally unaffiliated with this product (we checked), wrote in to tell us about FasciaBlaster, a weird looking stick that promises to smooth and reshape your body. It sat on our Editorial Desk for months but we’ve just started using it, skeptical as ever, and it does seem like something’s happening. We’ll let you know our conclusion at the end of May on our Fb page, where all Lab results get posted.
