Friday's Awesome Five

1. This video: I just... I can't even... it's just.... just watch it. (And use headphones if you can.)

2. I can picture myself living in this tank all summer, bro-ing out to a Wes Anderson marathon and listening to the Kinks day and night.

3. This video is a mind-blower. Not only is it beautifully shot, but there is some profound insight. (I'd recommend full screen.)

4. I covet these Swedish Hasbeens. I've been wanting a pair of their beautiful (and rumour has it, super comfortable) clogs for a while, but I just haven't been able to muster myself up to pay 200 dollars for them. But then came the lacy sandal and I'm seriously considering. Look at how great they are! Not too tall, but these beauties still have a heel. They come in black and olive as well as a white that has been selling like hotcakes over on Modcloth, but I'm a much bigger fan of the natural.

5. Winter Fruits: I'm a huge fan of them, primarily grapefruit. I love them so much I took photos. There is nothing like sinking your knife into a nice fat grapefruit and getting that glorious citrus aroma. I also really like tart/sour foods and this fits the bill. The New York Times also had an interesting take on winter fruits that's worth a peek.

Anything really turning your crank this week? If so, let us know!

Heavy Rotation

After a long and frustrating day at work filled with a little of this, a lot of this, and even some of this, I like to come home and hang out alone, do alone-time hobbies, and listen to music. And each week I tend to have just a couple songs I listen to non-stop.

This is my heavy rotation for the week. Not in the J-pop sense, but in the I-listen-to-these-songs-almost-exclusively way.

This week, nothing super new, but everything super catchy:

Roscoe - Midlake

Norgaard - The Vaccines

Rental Car - Beck (la la la la la la la la la la la la la)

Feeling Better by The Teenagers

Rock 'N Me - Steve Miller Band (no unhappily employed/unemployed person in Tacoma can resist this song. It's a fact.)

We didn't start the fire,
