MOM BUY ME THIS

I seem to have lost my Sigg bottle.

The person designing/approving the rest of the bottle designs needs some help. Most of them seem horribly dated.

Font vs Font

I love when big institutions give someone savvy creative control. I'm a total dork for fonts and I want good-looking typefaces EVERYWHERE.



Here is a clever article from the AIGA website about font facelifts.

Despite my enthusiasm for a well designed typeface, it's important to keep some perspective and a sense of humor.

ME & MY COUSINS

For some reason I had never heard any Vampire Weekend before last weekend. I had heard the name, just not the music. Then Kevin Taylor made we watch this video and I'm kind of in love with it.

While searching for a more efficient way to convert from CMYK to PMS colors I stumbled upon this guy's Web Dumb and can't get enough of it.

The color tools don't really do what I was looking for, but that isn't stopping me from playing with them all day.

Duncan's Day Out

A few days ago I went on a Manhattan adventure with Duncan, Brooklyn resident of one week, as my tour guide.

We ended up at the Outsider Art Fair in Midtown.

I didn't really know what Outsider Art was when we walked in but I was quickly convinced.

FEIST LIVE



Playlist.

I spent a few hours the other night watching videos of Feist performances on YouTube. I am entranced by her voice, it sounds like my favorite old blanket. And how it is hauntingly identical to the recordings.

TROP.FIDDY


I have been waking up with intense cravings for orange juice.
I know it is more of an orange drink than orange juice, but Who Cares?!
Trop Fiddy is my favie.

When Hammer Hits Stone


I've been going to see RTB2 play a lot the last few months and I have become OBSESSED with the song When Hammer Hits Stone.

Clarinety

I've been getting into playing my clarinet lately. I really want to get my chops up so I can play long enough for a rehersal.

Alisa and I are going to start working on some duets soon. If anyone else wants to get in on this just let me know.

---insert hilarious picture of me playing clarinet 10 years ago---


Clarinet Solo for you aural enjoyment.



In my search for a community band to play with I came across this little gem.


"The Oak Lawn Band
dedicates itself to serving the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Allies (LGBTA) community and its causes as well as other communities within Texas and the United States."
I find the idea of this interesting and curious in an appropriateness/necessity way, but in my extreme eschewal to any political discussion I don't care to discuss or think of it further.

e#&mag0s

If you think you are my friend and you don't love this band, then you are mistaken.


Well, maybe not. But you are either missing out or a total tool.

Dinner with the Fam.

Any of my friends who has had the pleasure of dining with my family has invariably been called an "idiot" or referred to as a "pinhead" by Brent - lovingly of course.
This video just gets me tickled with the image of Riley coming to dinner at the house...

Let's just say I'm pretty sure there would be two holes in the window where each of those boys had been drop-kicked out of the neighborhood.

Yellow Brick Road

I want this to be the first thing I see when I wake up tomorrow.

I have finally found myself back on the yellow brick road.
