IT'S THE MIDDLE OF SEPTEMBER. How did this happen?! When did this happen?! Is this real life?!

In other news - I am slowly but surely making my return to the blogging world. I know you're all very excited.

The "Another Rainy Day" Edition

So, this is the song that is supposed to play with that bouncy balls commercial I posted a couple weeks ago. It did when I first saw it, but for whatever reason, the song is different now? So much better with this one...

Wouldn't mind floating away for awhile...

The "Talented Hipster Overload" Edition

Yours Truly Presents: The Morning Benders "Excuses" from Yours Truly on Vimeo.

So many skinny, gifted weirdos in one room makes for something pretty amazing. Love it. The drums at 1:26 and violins at 1:48 just about kill me. Actually, the whole thing does. I bet this was incredibly fun to do....

Quarter of a Century

Today, this little munchkin turns 25. Holy crap...

(That's me, in case you were wondering)

The "Bounce" Edition

So apparently, this is a commercial for a TV, but I think it's the most gorgeous commercial I've ever seen.

The "A Little Bit In Love with a Total Stranger" Edition

I honestly don't know why or how I haven't shared this man on the blog yet, but I apologize for depriving you of this awesomeness. I found Wakey!Wakey! in that random, serendipitous way in which you always discover the best music: read about one band/singer, look up their MySpace/website, end up aimlessly clicking around for more until you find something like this. It's so exciting to see Michael gain a little mainstream attention lately from guest starring as "Grubbs the Bartender" on One Tree Hill (awful show, but he's great), and a small but exciting feature in the new iPad promo video (at 5:10 here).

Absolutely cannot wait for the new CD. Listen to more here, or here.

P.S. - I feel like I should apologize for being such a deadbeat blogger as of late. I'm completely slacking, but in case you didn't notice, I had a good excuse. I started my new job (!!!) last week, and while it was awesome, it made it pretty clear how severely lacking my time management skills are. But still, I shouldn't just abandon my little blog. Hopefully the adjustment period will end soon, all the craziness will die down, and I'll figure out some sort of schedule.

Book Smart

It is so refreshing to see architects and designers who aren't afraid to stray from the typical and lend a creative eye to every inch of the space they're creating. In the design of McNally Jackson Books Cafe by Front Studio, the subtle details and innovative use of materials come together to create a space that is at once bold and restrained. There are lots of clever and quirky details, but the space never feels 'themey' or juvenile, which is not always easy to accomplish. The overall aesthetic of the furniture and fixtures as well as the color scheme help to round out the space and make it feel more sophisticated.

I love the subtle texture and soft grey shades the open books create on the curved feature wall. Books were hung from the ceiling to look "as if a pile of books had been thrown into the sky and frozen."

The folding tables along the curved wall were made to resemble closed books when not in use.

Girly Girls

So obsessed with these gorgeous fashion illustrations from artist Leigh Viner. She is definitely one of my all time favorite Etsy finds (I'm still obsessed with this print I bought from her awhile back). I love that they're sort of girly with a hard edge. Be sure to check out her blog for some great eye candy and inspiration.

(The second to last one, entitled "Push" is my absolute favorite - I'm considering designing my entire bedroom around it)
