Every week should end with a list. The following things are causing tremors in our world:

1. This fellow’s daily photographs on Flickr. Why? Because we’re suckers for stark landscapes, found objects, and Nordic cityscapes. And we like to be able to depend on regularly scheduled aesthetic replenishments.

2. Eurostar’s green turn.

3. Czech Tourism’s big Brno push. With a big city festival to be held from May 18 through June 3, this is a great time to visit the Czech Republic’s second city. We dig Brno’s pairing of modern and 18th century. Note that Ryanair flies between Brno and London Stansted.

4. Turkish design collective Ilk. We hate to admit that it was Wallpaper* who tipped us off to Ilk, but there it is. Clearly, it’s time to return to Istanbul.

5. San Francisco Bay Area band The Lovemakers (see Lovemakers’ vocalist Lisa Light above) is providing the perfect soundtrack to a slowly unfolding spring. Thanks to Greg Young for introducing us to our new best friends.
