Grit Daily Spotlight: Andrew Sandler dishes on living documentaries with Chris Brown, Mary J. Blige

Music videos are dead? Not so fast. Or at least that’s the thinking of film-maker and producer, Andrew Sandler (no relation), who powered the creative behind some of the top album documentaries of this century. Sandler, 32, is one of a select few behind the camera and directing scenes in those viral music videos you shared over the weekend (or yesterday, for that matter). “I think there’s something like 150 million views on a Pitbull video I just directed,” Sandler told us...

History offers a glimpse of our future meatless apocalypse

Food revolutions happen. For instance, in the 18th century, potatoes were a foreign crop to many, a tuber people would not eat.

Hotel and concierge-style laundry and dry cleaning services run a steep price tag — sometimes as high as a $100 minimum cost per load.
