MUSIC MONDAYS: Beck’s + Edison

Music Mondays: because life's better with a soundtrack. You may have noticed that I have a thing for collaborative projects. This particular project adds the dynamic of juxtaposing the old and new: bringing together the folks at Beck's beer and some fine audio...

I think I’d pee my pants

...if I saw this in the woods. Apparently some park employees thought this would be a fun gag. Clowns in general don't scare me, but this Blair Witch/It mashup would terrify me. Yikes!...

the arrival

We had a kid and he’s amazing. Almost as amazing as his big sister.

my friends are cool: pine-stock

My good friend Matthew of Penny and Finn has a lovely side project with his dad called pine-stock. They're the subject of a giveaway hosted by A Beautiful Mess - you know - the folks that make that iOS photo app all the hipsters are using and the subject of my scorn?...

today’s the day

By the time you read this, it's likely that my son will have made his debut in the world. Follow me on twitter for updates.

one man’s trash is another man’s metropolis

The work of James McNabb is apparently a gift that keeps on giving. I think I'll be highlighting a couple of his projects here, as the inspiration well is deep. But this? This is incredible. Now I've gotta find a way to make my scraps looks this...

MUSIC MONDAYS: Jazz Giant Mulgrew Miller

Music Mondays: because life's better with a soundtrack. Last week, the jazz world lost a true giant. Pianist Mulgrew Miller passed well shy of 60 years old. He was a member of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers and a sideman from some of jazz's greats throughout the 80's...

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...

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...

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...

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...

MUSIC MONDAYS: Shefy & Sabbah

Music Mondays: because life's better with a soundtrack. I never really got into Radiohead when my friends were digging them. I found them a little later and fell in love with OK Computer in college. As I'm also a huge fan of  (man, I hate this term) world music,...

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...

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...

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 (...

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...

greats

What do you think of this launch video?

on originality

Do you ever feel pressure to be original? If I can be frank, I'm kind of sick of that word...original. There's so much pressure to summon the muse, to conjure from nothing groundbreaking thoughts and sights. I call BS. If these are examples of plagiarism, then we want...
