Every week FRANK151 suggests a collection of people, podcasts, and/or social media accounts that you should get into if you want to make your life better, or at least if you want to make the time waiting in line for carryout go faster.
The Asakusa Horikazu Instagram account mostly showcases Tebori tattoo design, a craft that dates back to the 18th century. While this traditional Japanese art is usually associated with Yakuza, it tells a more personal story than the rebel iconography of traditional American tattoos. Tebori practitioners go through years of apprenticing to learn the specific techniques, which reject mechanical instruments and are literally done by hand. The photos of kids and sunsets are cool, too.—Justin Esposito
Millie Bobby Brown is the 12-year-old actor who plays Eleven on Stranger Things. What you would expect from Millie is mostly true, she is a tiny, peppy Brit who smiles through her retainer and graciously thanks her fans for their comments and follows. Sometimes it’s frustrating to follow an actor on social media when their persona is contradictory to their character. But what’s fun about Millie’s upbeat personality is that she plays into her fans obsession with El by using her account to reminisce on all things Strange. She also uses her Instagram to post behind the scene footage of her and the boys from Stranger Things on set, promoting the show, or playing off camera. She is so great at giving the people what they want. We love you MBB.—Lily Waronker
Phil Yu started his Angry Asian Man blog back in the early 2000s to express his opinions, both good and bad, about the multitudinous Asian-American experiences. Now with the help of social media outlets, including his Twitter account, Angry Asian Man has become a popular destination to learn about current events for all sorts of readers. I even learned about it from a good friend of mine who is Latino. Read Yu’s angry yet funny tweets about everything from the great whitewashing of Hollywood to ridiculing Republican New Mexico delegate Dr. Lisa Shin for siding with Donald Trump. As Phil says, “Stay Angry.”—Paolo Veloria
