OUR WEEKLY PROCRASTINATION

Photo: Before I die I want to (NYC).

Before I die I want to… is a project created by Brooklyn-based artist Nicole Kenney, inspired by a combination of factors: (1) the “death” of the Polaroid, (2) a psychologist’s tool called safety contracts, and (3) a passion to get people to think about (and act upon) what is really important in their lives through this simple, straight-forward question. If you want to know more about the project or have a look at what people want to do before they die, click here.

Moose Running on Highway. Jimmy Kimmel warns us that there’s more people killed every year by moose than by sharks. One billion people he says, and he has a video that could be the clue to discover why. Have a look here.

Ladies, if you speak Spanish and you want to procrastinate a little (that last part is a bit obvious, no?), or if you want to go all in and rent a bearded guy, this is the website you must go: Adopta un tio (Adopt a Guy). Our correspondents in Madrid tells us that with his nice selection of special offers (bearded guys, gingers, geeks, tattooed, etc) this page is what’s hot in Spain right now. (Although neither them or us have any idea if they are serious or not).

Photos: Shuffle Festival at St. Clements Social Club

Attack the Block @ Shuffle Festival. We went to watch Joe Cornish’s sci-fi comedy Attack the Block at Shuffle Festival. During the Time Out’s outdoors it rained lightly but that just made the experience more English. Whether you found about this nice Shuffle Festival on time or not you still can head down to St. Clements Social Club, a former psychiatric facility located in Mile End that became a very peculiar yet amazing landmark with various different spaces, gardens, bars and over all nice cool-down people. Go ahead and have a look.

Finally, the most popular Tumblr of the week: This Charming Charlie. Combine the lyrics of The Smiths with Peanuts panels? Yes, please.
