    "Everybody's so scared. Don't be scared." In this short for MrPorter.com Hollywood talent agent, Andrew Weitz, takes pride in the fact that his more conservative colleagues make fun of his style and that this spurs him on to buy more of the things they are baffled by.

      "I'm interested in the classics, things that don't go away and I'd say that extends to how I feel about music, how I feel about records and how I feel about books as well." Los Angeles based musician Nick Waterhouse begins this short film for MrPorter.com by laying out his philosophy in one simple sentence. Clean living under difficult circumstances indeed. Nick's album, 'Time's All Gone' is a huge favourite of mine, a masterpiece of early 60s drenched R&B that has the feel, the sound and, above all, the vibe of that recording era. The record sounds like it was made by a bunch of real life human beings gathered in a room at the same time. A rare thing these days. http://nickwaterhouse.com Directed by Chris Floyd Cinematography by Joseph Aguirre Music: '(If) You Want Trouble' by Nick Waterhouse

                    In this special episode of This Week in ds106, Jim Groom sits down with ds106 alumni Sarah Kountz and Megan McMillan (as well as a third student Karen Ellrod who wasn't even in ds106). This discussion ranges from the importance of a community that spans beyond the arbitrary confines of a 15 week idea of a course. ds106 as aone way to re-imagine graduates relationship to their alma mater, new ideas for similar courses, as well as taking the course-centric idea out of ds106 and making it part and parcel of the community.
