The Daily Uplift: First Aid Live And New Skills For No Bills



Welcome to The Daily Uplift, a new side-project from HODINKEE. Given the current climate, we wanted to make sure that some positivity still made its way into your day. Moving forward, we’re going to offer a story or activity you can experience from home and a great album that is worth a closer listen. Pulled directly from the mindshare of the HODINKEE staff (a positive crew if I’ve ever seen one), it’s a token of our appreciation for you stopping by the site and a small investment in cultivating positive vibes among the greater community. 

Today we’re joined by our video producer and wavey culture maven David Aujero as he offers up a bit of motivation to learn something new. 

Something to do…

Two Free Months Of Skillshare – skillshare.com

I can imagine that, at this point, the new norm has fully set in and our days are all starting to blend together and feel the same. Let me guess – coffee or tea in the morning, jump on a Zoom call, do some work (with your kids climbing on you, maybe), do a little exercise, make yourself a nice meal, chill at night. Wash, rinse, repeat. Without a commute, you’ve probably gained a few more hours in your day, and that extra time is a great opportunity to invest in yourself and pick up a new skill. Not to totally sound like an ad, but Skillshare is offering two free months of premium membership. From leadership and management classes, to learning how to fingerpick on a guitar, to taking a masterclass on logotype, there’s something for everyone. The great thing is that they are full courses and not just single episodes. So, if I could be your motivational guru for two seconds – put Tiger King or Ozark on pause and learn something new!

Something to listen to…

First Aid Kit Full Performance – KEXP (YouTube)

This is a YouTube performance I have been returning to for years as I find the outright talent and the entirely under stressed delivery to be nothing short of beautiful. Featuring the Swedish sister duo act First Aid Kit, Klara and Johanna’s loping folk melodies are matched by two seriously impressive voices. I’m sure many of you have heard something from First Aid Kit in the past (if not, it’s all excellent), but the real treat here is how well they do their thing live. Stay in the video long enough to learn a bit more about the band and don’t you dare close the tab before their jaw-dropping cover of Simon and Garfunkel’s “America.” Nothing that sounds this good should look this easy.
