Dead Man

I have a little crush, just a teensy bit of a crush on Ryan Gosling. So tiny its the size of the atlanticoceancombinedwiththegreatwallofchina. I mean, duh.

Ryan Gosling has a band called Dead Man's Bones, and yes, its good. I'm serious. He's playing here in New York at Le Poisson Rouge in October, and yes, I've already bought my ticket.

so long, for now...

I am off to Asheville, NC for the weekend. So excited to be down there to listen to some good music and hang out with good peopl by the Blue Ridge Mountains.

And with that, I'll leave you with a couple of travel bags I've been eyeing... Actually I want these to carry my laptop around in, my shoulder is slowly deteriorating from carrying it around in a messenger bag or a tote bag.

Cacti in the city.

Recently Jordin, Eric, and I (and Pinky) went up to Long Island City where Deitch Studios is located to visit Mr. Taylor McKimens. At the end of an industrial street, we walk into a breezy bit of paradise with veggies growing and the view of Midtown Manhattan looking ever so serene.

His studio is filled with blasts of color, cacti, records, and 2 new, amazing, LARGE paintings. I particularly love the one of the girl on crutches with a machine gun.

All in all, good conversation over coffee and cupcakes were had.

long BEACH

(if you ever listened to snoop dog, you'd know what i meant by that title even though he meant long beach, california.)

Over the weekend, I went to the beach with friends. Its how I love to spend my summer weekends; sitting, sleeping, and reading gossip magazines in the sand and dipping in the ocean. I absolutely love it.

A 1, 2, 3...Sequence!

I was spending the day at my boyfriend's over the weekend (mainly to mooch off of his cable because I have no t.v. DAMN YOU FCC for making us convert!) and flipped to TMC where a movie called "Yours, Mine, and Ours" was starting up. I was immediately drawn in by the title sequence. I'm still not sure who did it, but Joel reminded me of the master title sequencer of all, Saul Bass.

A couple of my favorites. Check out, for an extensive gallery of his work (and a really cool interactive image gallery).

And a little show and tell of his posters.....

I love this poster via insect54's flickr.
(edit: per request of certain people, i've update the link to my boyfriend. who is an amazing designer, bt-DUBS)

Love, love, love

When I found out that Flo and Steph got engaged, I was beyond excited. And I've been patiently waiting to rip open this envelope to see what they created for their invite. These two are some of the most creative (not to mention, wonderful and amazing) people I know, so its no surprise that they made a gem like this.

Illustrations of their favorite places in Los Angeles for their guests to enjoy.

I love it and I love them. I can't wait for my trip to L.A. for their wedding.
