This Chronicle Books video features Chad Robertson, co-owner of Tartine Bakery in San Francisco, and the author of Chronicle’s Tartine Bread, published in 2010:
To Chad, bread is the foundation of a meal, the center of daily life, and each loaf tells the story of the baker who shaped it. He developed his unique bread over two decades of apprenticeship with the finest artisan bakers in France and the United States, as well as experimentation in his own ovens.
We always like videos that show how things are made, but the bonus here for us was talking about how having the patience for the bread to rise made the bread taste even better than it would have had it been rushed.

The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards’ Pipes and Drums — “a section of pipers (playing the Great Highland Bagpipe), a section of snare drummers… several tenor drummers and usually one, though occasionally two, bass drummers.”
With a history that is over 300 years old, the SCOTS DG regiment’s Pipes and Drums was established in the 1920s and more officially in the 1940s. Between deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, they have more recently released albums and have toured widely, performing in concerts and parades.
Charles Yang on Violin, Michael Thurber on Bass, and Eddie Barbash on Alto Saxophone… together they are The Human Jukebox, a super-viral musical video experiment by cdza. In this experiment, they use donations as votes, and then donate those donations to Wingspan Arts, a non-profit that reaches out to expose diverse and young audiences of people to performing, visual, media and literary arts. An awesome video on multiple levels.
