Miracle at St. Anna


I still have not seen the trailer for Spike Lee's new film, Mircale at St. Anna, in its entirety yet, so I am not sure about the film itself, but I am really digging this logo type.

OH SHIT

Kafka


I love book covers and I do judge a book by its cover (no matter what my second grade librarian said). I have never been a big fan of Kafka (or creepy bugs for that matter), but thoroughly enjoy this book cover.

Cover found on one of my new favorite sites The Book Design Review.

Street Find


I was walking home the other day and passed this chair on the curb. It's pattern caught my eye.

Google Redone



I was surfing around No.17's site, and came across some redos of company's logos. I really dug the google logo, what about you?

Obama



I was on the subway home and I saw a woman wearing an Obama button very similar to this (I mocked this up in illustrator). Has anyone else seen this button? I am really digging it, I was very tempted to ask her if I could take a picture of her button, but thought it might creep her out. If you know where I can find it let me know!

The thanks I get


I was listening to Coconut Records, and this lyric struck me.

Design by me.

Not that you care...


But I forgot with my craziness of school work and family about updating "What I am currently reading". So if you care I just read Diary by Chuck Palanhniuk (by the way I just had to look up how to spell his name way too many times). It is rather interesting, you have to have patience with his books though because you never find out what is really going on until the end, but there was a really interesting concept with this book.

Now I am finally reading The Bell Jar. It has been on my list for a while.

Schtock


I just discovered Schtock.com. It is brilliant, some of you may of already heard of it though, and thus already know this. The anonymous creator of this site takes stock images and creates new works out of them. Who knew stock images could look so good?

Sorry Sorry

I am sorry I have been so MIA. My family has been in town, and I have been rather busy. Here is
my apology via Rooney. (And I just realized this is my second post about Rooney on this blog) I am going to make it up to all this week by posting daily (if possible).


The revolution has begun

I saw Tale of Two Cities, the new musical, twice last week, and love it both times. It is absolutely amazing. If you are in New York I definitely recommend seeing it, you won't regret it. The staging, the cast, and the music is all wonderful. You can see the commercial below, and find out more on their website.

Onomanopoeia


These plates are the inspiration for a new project I am doing about sound pollution. I love the new Batmans, but I also love the imagery of the old school Batman with Adam West. 

My brother is a big Batman guy, and when he was little he used to play Batman and Robin with his best friend. He would always be Robin though. You might think it odd that a kid would concede to being Robin, but he made a deal with his friend if the friend got to be Batman my brother got to decide everything they did. What a clever little kid.

Batman image from here.

Sans Vous


Two of my best friends have abandoned me this semester to live abroad in France. I miss them dearly, and cannot wait to see them again. If I only I could be like Eloise and jet off to Paris. Okay well, I want to be Eloise for more than just that, but right now that is topping the list.

Smart People

I watched Smart People last night, and enjoyed it. I had wanted to see it since it came out, so I guess it shouldn't surprise me that I enjoyed it, but I haven't really liked any SJP role since Sex and the City, but I liked her in this. So if you haven't seen it, I recommend it.


And speaking of SJP. I had one of the best celebrity sightings of my life. Normally I don't get too excited, but the other day I was leaving school and I saw MATTHEW BRODERICK. I wanted to run up and hug him so badly, but resisted the temptation. I had just watched Ferris Bueller the night before and was thinking how lucky SJP is. Oh my god, I love Matthew Broderick.

Sorry sorry sorry


Hiiiiiii,
Sorry I have been absent the past couple of days, but I have not had time for anything really. But as an apology I offer you this eye candy, the 14 new covers of V. (Click on the image to make it bigger!)

Beacoup


So I have been seeing a lot of commericals for "Confession of a Shopaholic" I haven't really formed an opinion on it. Normally I would gag a little, but then my love, Hugh Dancy, is in it. Also the girl with the cropped bangs was one of Rory's friends from Gilmore Girls. Which is one of my favorite shows of all time, and I don't care how pathetic that sounds, it is wonderful. And really how much lower can I go after listing off fact of fact about "Gossip Girl" in front of my entire class yesterday. 

Oh also, the picture above of Rory's friend, Krysten Ritter, is from an issue of the deceased Jane Magazine. Which I miss thoroughly. I love love Jane, and wish it was still in print.

Isn't the picture just adorable?

By the way I have been a fan of Anderson since his days on The Mole.

Helen Dardik




I have seen the lovely work of Helen Dardik around the web, but I just came across her site, and everything is so adorable. I would definitely take the time to take a look around! I especially love her pattern design, some of which is posted above.

An American in Paris






So I was watching "An American in Paris" the other day, and what struck me about it is how brilliant the set design was. The colors, the shapes, the way they work in the dance sequences. Truly amazing. I really loved the scene where Gene Kelley is dancing in front of a wall of french (now vintage) advertisements. They make such a beautiful background. 

I found these amazing posters at Lefor-Openo.

Lost There, Felt Here



I just saw this great t-shirt to raise awareness of global deforestation. Each shirt has a hole cut out of it show how forest lost there affects us here. It is part of the campaign, "Lost There, Felt Here". The identity was done by the design firm Trademark™

I think this is a really great campaign about a really serious issue, but I also don't think I could help myself from poking someone through that little hole who was wearing the shirt.

SALE! SALE! SALE!



I am having a sale at my shop! Check it out here!

Teen Girl Squad


                                


Do you guys remember Teen Girl Squad from Homestar Runner? When I was in high school it was pretty ballin. I just watched a couple episodes again, and it is still pretty amusing. I mean how can someone being attacked by MSG not be good?


SOOOOO GOOD

Finally lost it's sail

                                 

I love Rilo Kiley, and I just remembered how much I love the song "Ripchord". It just has that...quality. You know what I am talking about? If you do leave me a comment so I know what I am talking about.

Thanks.

Oh and can we just talk for a minute about how the adorable Blake Sennett is Joey the Rat from Boy Meets World? You know that little scrawnie bully who spent all his time with the big guy Frankie? Yep its him.
