OK, Go!

I'm not sure I'd think this app was so great if anyone else made it. Sometimes context is everything.I just love how OK Go constantly reinvents themselves and challenges our perception of what a band is and can do.Download the app for iOS or Android. You can even play the members of the band. Feel free to add me to facebook and invite me to play....

what I’ve learned from GOLD RUSH

I've been watching Discovery Channel's Gold Rush and realized something:Much like sailing, mining has given the American English lexicon quite a few idiomatic expressions. Hitting "paydirt" and waiting to see what "pans out?" Thanks to the gold rush.I don't know about you, but I find that amusing....

you’re gonna need a bigger hoop

I don't know what I was more excited about after reading this Colossal story: the fact that Art Basel happened in Hong Kong this year or this sphere-ified VW Beetle from artist Ichwan Noor.What I really love about this piece is the way many of the lines retain their integrity. This isn't a crumpled car; it's a sculpted car. Well, that and the shiny tires.So, what artist is inspiring you lately? ...

polish this

I've always thought I'd be far more impressive if I had an editor. From fixing simple mistakes in spelling and grammar to fully re-working my incoherent thoughts, an editor could take of some of my roughness and provide a little bit of polish.Screw that.I've been thinking and reading and absorbing a lot about inspiration lately. In doing so, I'm spending a lot of time engaging with the words of cats like James Victore and Aaron Draplin,...

am I really that old?

It's hard to believe today's the day.It's been ten years since I promised my life to my high school sweetheart. Yeah, we were just kids.And here we are on the brink of transition from a family of three to a team of four! Our little boy is due to meet us in a couple weeks and, if his sister is any indication, he might show up as early as some time next week.Lauren Grove (who...

all that glitters might be gold

  OK - how cool is this?Seriously!French artist Hubert Duprat employed the larvae of the caddis fly to create these beautiful sculptures of precious metals and stones. He's provided the larvae with these materials instead of the natural materials they normally use to build their cocoons. I'm not even sure what to say. This is so incredibly beautiful and such an amazing use of materials (including the larvae). I'm completely mesmerized by this....

yeah, but can it cut?

These knives by Andrea Ponti are stunning. There's just something so alluring about this natural/minimal aesthetic. I want these knives. But the reality is, I'd never use them. Sure, you might be able to cut some breads. And, of course, there's cheeses and spreads ( insert "cut the cheese" chuckle here), but the reality is: they have no real place in my life except as an object of beauty.And, boy are they beautiful. ...

first pearl jam, now your wedding

It's probably been two years since I first read a blog post about unplugged weddings. Most recently, this one from Corey Ann photography crossed my path. Even as a fully-wired child of the internet, I wholeheartedly agree with the idea of an unplugged wedding and I think you should, too.Couples already hire exceptional photographers and filmmakers, allowing guests to be guests, wholly ready to embrace the moment. Otherwise,  this might happen:Are you considering going unplugged...
