God don't make lonely girls.

So this evening I relived my high school glory days via a pretty fantastic show at the Newport: the Wallflowers. $20 (well, plus $5 for a single Stella Artois and $10 for a cd...see below on that) is definitely a fair price for 90 minutes of Jakob Dylan-led rock n roll, I always say. And, yes, I was totally one of those people who whipped out her cell phone to take a picture--what? What?

Anyway, an added bonus to the evening was the opening act--a stylish lady named Serena Ryder, who totally blew my mind. I excitedly bought a cd from her and I do love it, although I was hoping it would be an acoustic recording she has a band here though, honestly, she doesn't need one. She played solo tonight and rocked the house.

And, lastly, since I'm talking about music: I'm playing on Saturday's Gallery Hop, outside L'Antibes at 772 N. High Street. Come listen!

Slacking no more.

Many apologies to my wide body of readers (hi, Claire) for the fortnight of No Posting. But I'm back! My new plaid dress has inspired me to rejoin the world. Anyway, I know chandeliers are crazy hot right now, inexplicably on everything, everything (like ALL the mod girly home dec stuff at Target, even the things that it makes no sense for them to be on--ESPECIALLY on the things it makes no sense to be on.) But that doesn't mean I love them any less. And this print is a particularly fun example. I love the feathery, eyelash-y details and, of course, the pinkness. Check out Eva Vaughan for more.

I feed my habits daily.

This is an original song by Tracy Cupitt, musician and artist who blogs at Gingerhoneycat. I am so happy to have discovered this song. The melody and music on the line "different as I may be" is going to haunt me all day, I do believe.

Looking at stars.

Thanks to Rebecca and her lovely blog Dog-eared, I discovered this today: a huge collection of astronomy-related photos taken by the experts themselves--NASA. The photo archive goes back 14 years (yep. 1995.) and features a new image every day. Some are diagrams, some are video, some are breathtaking shots of good old Earth, and some are so lovely that it's genuinely hard to believe sometimes that these things exist on their own.

14 years, 1 photo every day. That should keep me busy for a while.

The city.

I'm blogging from New York City at the moment, just to say I did. The above photo is from a different city--Rome. Check out Study for more gorgeous experimental images (this one's from a Lomo Diana.)

Get out the map

So, I have a thing for cufflinks. Especially clever ones like this, from DLK Designs. If all the boys I know would stop being silly boys, maybe I'd buy these for somebody. Be sure to check out the rest of her shop for more map-related goodness.
