A gift guide for kids?

I was looking over at Black Eiffel the other day and she had a gift guide for youngsters. But I want everything on that gift guide. Apparently good design is good for all ages. Bonus, everything is under $15!

Food + Design = Love

I got an e-mail about purchasing B.R. Guest giftcard. They own restaurants like Dos Caminos that do the table side guacamole, mmmm. I have no intention of buying a gift card, but I there is something about the design that I am really digging.

Abominable Snowman

I love all incarnations of the abominable snowman. Though when I was little and we would go on the Skyway at Disneyland and you would go through the Matterhorn I would have close my eyes and cover my ears because I was so scared of him. But though he still causes me to scream on the Matterhorn, I love him. And I love this stuffed version from Romp.

I Love Bill Murray

I have always loved Bill Murray. I even loved him when he guest hosted on Regis and Kathy Lee and wouldn't stop saying "I'll tell ya what."  I think I went around saying that for days.  Now apparently he is the new party boy of the hipster community. And that makes me oh so happy. You may have all seen this on A Cup of Jo. Which is where I saw it, which then took me to an article about his partying ways, and I just had to share the final lines of the article with you all.

Then again, perhaps he's just toying with us all. There's an urban legend that's gone round until no one is sure who it happened to, or if it happened at all. It was late one night, a few years ago, when a young man was walking through Union Square Park. He suddenly felt someone behind him, their hands over his eyes. When he turned in surprise, there was Bill Murray, his creased face leaning in close. Bill whispered, "No one is ever going to believe you," and then just walked away.

Hitchcock Redesigned

Recently I did a project designing a poster for an Alfred Hitchcock film festival. My friend then saw these posters and thought of me. I thought they were pretty cool so I thought I would share them with all of you!


I saw Equus last night, famous for Daniel Radcliffe (aka Harry Potter) running around naked gouging out horses eyes. But let me tell you it is so much more. It is one of the best plays I have seen in quite some time. Richard Griffiths is fantastic (aka Uncle Vernon from Harry Potter) and so is Daniel. The play is by no means normal, but it is by all means brilliant. If you get the chance to see it, do.

Also if you can find the episode of Inside the Actors studio that just aired with Daniel Radcliffe I would definitely recommend watching that as well. Gave me some new insight to Mr. Radcliffe.

Alphabet Bags

Remember these Alphabet Bags that we all know and love?

Well I was just on Urban Outfitters and saw this:
How depressing, I was looking for signs that the Urban and Alphabet Bags were working together, but sadly it appears urban is just ripping them off.

I own many things from Urban, but being a designer it makes me sad that they are ripping independent off. Check out this site for more.

Part of me misses the use of handkerchiefs, but then I also find them quite repulsive. When I blow my nose I would like to just throw that thing away. But still I love them. And I especially love these handkerchiefs from Jack Spade, so quirky and cute, of course in a manly way since they are for men.

Alex if you used handkerchiefs I would get you these.

Jonathan Adler

LOVE these new needlepoint accessories from Jonathan Adler. They make me smile, and they are only$28-$48, which makes me smile more.

Last night I finished A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers. It was wonderful.

One of my favorite quotes comes after one of the characters opens a pack of modeling clay for Christmas.

"Thank you," he says.
"Thank who?"
"I don't know. You?"
"No, not me. Jesus."
"Thank you, Jesus?"
"Yes, Toph, Jesus died for your Christmas fun."
"He did?"
I turn to Bill. Bill is staying out of it.
"He did," I say. "Beth, did he not?"
"Indeed he did. Indeed he did."

Things I miss

So I was watching ABC Family, as most 20 year olds do, and a disney movie came on. Specifically, "Cars" and instead of seeing the opening logo that you see above I saw some horrible digitized version of it. It made me so sad. Everyone seems to be doing things digital just because they can. I yearn for cartoons that actually look like they were drawn, those were and still are the best.
