Doesn’t Dean look amazing here? We snapped this photo on our last trip to England a couple years ago. Paper crown on head, Cyberdog pinwheel in hand. We’re celebrating the first day of summer by flying to London this afternoon! I can’t wait to spend time with his folks, wedding plan, and see Pulp (omigod)! […]
Here’s my summer mix- it’s short and sweet, like summers in Seattle. I wouldn’t say there’s a deliberate theme here, though they are all songs I have a hard time not singing/humming along to (loudly and off key). You can listen to the whole thing on 8tracks (what a great site! I love listening to […]
Nothin’ finer than a Sunday matinee… Naturally, I LOVED this movie. It’s about Gil, an aspiring novelist, who is visiting Paris with his fiancee and future in-laws. When the clock strikes midnight, he is whisked back in time to hobnob with luminaries of the 1920s- as in: he’s dancing the Charleston with Djuna Barnes, drinking […]
Nate, Kristy, and I saw this last night at The Egyptian. It was the US premiere and my first SIFF screening- what a nice sense of occasion! [images from: clothes on film and i love you, blue sky] The film Norwegian Wood is based on a book of the same name by Haruki Murakami. Essentially, […]
A mug for Ian! Gold and green glaze from Pebeo 150- it came out a bit more textured than I’d have liked but otherwise I’m pleased with the result. Haha, I almost forgot to paint on legs which would’ve made this poor thing look like a rotten, flying yam. Phew!
Eric, Dean, and I spent most of Sunday in Ballard. I’ve recently decided this is my favorite neighborhood in Seattle. It’s like an oasis from the rest of the city with a smattering of Scandinavian history and loads of good bars. The only street people in sight are buskers and there are a lot of […]
…for my new clock! The eyes move when you tilt it (and presumably when it’s wound up). I’m going to try winding it up before re-attaching the chains and brass pine cone but even if it’s a dud, I love it! This cuckoo was made by the Poppo Tezuka co. somewhere between 1945 and 1952 […]
Verse Chapter Verse, The Stranger’s music/reading series was this past Saturday at Chop Suey. If this isn’t the sort of thing that happens in every city, it should- books and bands make an excellent combo! The event opened with a few songs by Tomten, a local Seattle band. I liked them quite a bit- enough […]
