The Loneliness, Colour and Sunshine Edition

A weekly dispatch from What We Seee. Part of an ongoing mission to fulfil the cultural promise of the internet. An enriching and eclectic collection of music, art, film and stories. Think of it as your digital 5-a-day.

I needed colour

A peek inside the mind and mood of Jim Carrey through his own paintings; how art unlocked and expressed his subconscious feelings and desires.

“Something inside you is always telling a story… every single thing that you see and hear is talking to you.”

A friend left behind

In this short film by Victoria Rivera, three teenage girls break into a shut down pool. When uninvited guests show up, their friendship is tested and one of them is left behind.

Nothing can stop these lonely tears from falling

Singer and songwriter Chris Cornell, who left us a few years ago, performs this consuming cover of Nothing Compares 2 U.


A jazz concert at home every single Sunday

Marjorie Eliot lost her son on a Sunday in 1992. Since then, she has hosted a weekly Sunday jazz party in her living room, in the Sugar Hill section of Harlem, in an effort to create celebration as a tribute to her son.

This weekly concert is open to the community and anyone who wants to attend.
