Ambling Alp. Dripping static, slinky faces and naked people. Maybe Yeasayer thought they had written to catchy of a song; shit guys, we gotta make this weird.

Yeasayer will always keep me dancing...and trying to figure out what Chris Keating is singing about. Check out their creepy as hell experimental interactive video for the song and a free download here.

The Sartorialist Posts a Dallas Chick

Just thought I should re-blog this occurrence. As part of his new book tour, fashion blogger Scott Schuman from The Sartorialist, did a book signing in my hometown of Dallas, TX. I'm crossing my fingers he'll make plans soon for Boston...

Diet Coke Pop

Part of Diet Cokes new Live Tastefully campaign involves actual Diet Coke Pop-Up Kitchens, or lounges, that serve you a free Diet Coke and samples of food that they promise goes well with the drink. Get your picture taken with a huge Diet Coke bottle, sample the foods, and browse the web at Boston's Diet Coke Lounge on 144 Tremont, 11am-3pm, till Nov 1st. The idea is innovative, but will you really replace a glass of wine at dinner with a soda pop? Probably not.

Eternal Summers

We're well into autumn but that doesn't mean you can't be nostalgic. Eternal Summers is a guitar/drummer duo with Nicole Yun's reverbed vocals. Catchy garage pop rock. I think of a dreamier, slower version of Deerhoof, but maybe that's just because she's Asian.
Check them out, listen to the track 'I Must Winter':

Paint Palettes

Surprisingly enough, my room mate and I only chose one color out of three that was named after a food, Perfect Peach. Above is Polar White, the other is Ivory Tower. The only reason I would want to paint my room pink because it's called Sweet Melon.

Side note, I would like to be Leeloo for Halloween, but someone please tell me where you can buy orange plastic suspender type things...

Boston Fashion Week is upon us, and while Autumn is finally coming in on the breeze our bodies and our wardrobe must become acclimated. With so many events, fashion shows and after parties, I'm sure we'll be seeing some very stylish Bostonians around Newbury.

New Apartment Inspirations

Moving to Beacon Hill in one month means I get to decorate an entire apartment with my roomie. This summer I've made a collection of small things that are inspiring the style, look and feel that I want my new place to have. Midwestern and southern flair mixed with east coast simplicity.

on the road again

The Cadillac Ranch was built in 1974 by Stanley Marsh. Located on I-40, or what use to be Route 66, it is made up of 10 Cadi's in a row, all angled due west, with the same degree as the Cheops Pryamids. Pretty sweet.

500 Days of Summer

As cheesy and dumb this movie looks, I'm pretty sure I'm going to see it opening night. The last movie I saw Joseph Gorden-Levitt in was Mysterious Skin, so it will be nice to see his face in a less emotionally disturbing movie.

Silver Pines

The band Silver Pines, on tour in the north east with Secret Land Time Machine came last night to play a house show in Allston. My brother plays bass for Silver Pines and they have a tour blog and you can listen to their music, here. Check out a few more of my shots on flickr.

Avacado and Lime

I made some damn good guacamole this week. You should do the same. It's all about the lime, so open your windows, play some music and celebrate the last (official days) of spring.

Summer Collections

Style that I want to be able to pull off/sometimes try. Except, I could never rock a one piece like that one woman, and every time I attempt to tie a scarf in my hair I somehow mess it up. High tops and cut offs? Perfect. These images come from Facehunter and The Sartorialist.

Summer Sleep

by Irving Penn. I became a fan looking through his still lifes of skulls, plums and egg whites. But when I learned he shot the original Clinique Ads, I was sold. It's those advertisments, tucked away in a file folder in my closet that made me want to study marketing.

summertime clothes

I swear every chick in Boston has bought this shirt. It's like the girl version of that Urban Outfitters shirt every man on the planet know the one I'm talking about: dees one.
