Cricket Trailer

This is a trailer that I'd actually consider owning (though we'd need two to fit all 6 of us). This super cool looking trailer is designed to be highly efficient and environmentally friendly. The Cricket manages to pack in everything you need for a getaway into it very small package. Available in 2 models, you can choose the Folding Couch model (interior shown below) which sleeps 1 (or 2 if you're close) or the V-Berth which can sleep 2 adults  in a bit more comfort. Either model can add the optional Kids Attic to sleep 2 children (under 100 lbs) up above. And if you add the Photovoltaic Panels, you are solar powered for even the most out of the way get away.

You can hear the full album here and be sure to read the piece on the duo from Interview or the full Interview Interview. To get you started, here's "Keep You":

Girl Rising

Last, but far from least, I'm going to mention Girl Rising. I am working on a bigger post, but I want to get it in now too. If you haven't heard of it yet, the film presents the story of 9 extraordinary girls in 9 countries, each story written by a renowned writer and narrated by a celebrated actress. The stories will probably break your heart, but they will also inspire you. The trailer is below and there lots more information on the website. Find the film or bring it to a theater near you & see it, donate to the 10x10 Fund for Girls' Education, do whatever you can to help these girls, all girls rise. It really, truly absolutely is true, educate girls and you will change the world.
