fun : a few favorites
print + press : lotta jansdotter
Hi Everyone -
Thank you so much for your feedback on the quest for the perfect Messenger Bag, which might end-up being a perfect Tote, or a Yoga Mat Tote! I'm going to share the post and comments with the owner next week, so if you haven't left a comment - love them or not - please do. I'll let you know what happens, but I know your thoughts will be seriously considered.
[Note 2.20.09: I spoke briefly with the owner of Tusk today and he is game! Phew!]
This week, my doctor is in big trouble. I know the flu shot has nothing to do with getting a cold, but I have a cold and I blame him. In my opinion, it's 'thisclose' to being the flu with aches & pains and a Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer-style nozzle in both look, sound and feel. Anyway, today's favorites make me feel much better and I hope they'll keep the a-a-a-achews! away from you, too. Spring is on the horizon in these parts and there's no time for a cold. Have a great weekend!
Art : Abby & Chelsea's collaboration called print + press is a perfect example of how using similar materials (ink + paper) can result in completely different outcomes.
Earth : Vivid and up close satellite images of the good, the bad and the ugly of our dear planet on GeoEye (via VSL).
Fun : My brother sent me this video of George Carlin talking about finding a place for your stuff. It's funny and so true. We love our stuff!
Music : So excited about the new album, Middle Cyclone, to be released by Neko Case on March 3rd. I think her voice is so distinctively clear and cool. Some guests include M. Ward, Sarah Harmer, Los Lobos, The Sadies, The Lilys, and Giant Sand. I love the album art, too. (iTunes : Amazon)
Stationery : Lovely Vana of Le Papier Studio made a special 2009 calendar for our Tusk wholesale clients this past holiday. Her work is wonderful and so is she.
Yums : I'm not a big fan of chicken wings. Might be because I always got the drum stick as a kid. I do love Ken's Buffalo Wing Marinade on my chicken cutlet sandwich, though.
