my uncle always gives me giant, usually used but nonetheless fantastic art and design books for my birthday/xmas/other gifting occasions. sometimes he misses the mark, other times he's dead on. this year, for my bday, he sent me another MOMA collection book, and my modern art bookshelf just got better. I have a couple MOMA books but this one is now at the top of my heart list. after just flipping through for the first time, I flagged some of my faves to come back to. some pieces I actually remember seeing when I was there a couple years ago, so that was exciting too.
view in HD for full specialness. shot this with my little sony video camera, which is insanely amazing. i love karen o. she has a custom studded leather jacket ONLY for performing 'zero' (you can check it out better in the actual music video) that has her initials on the back. so. bad. ass.
yay to house of blues for an amazing show, and for introducing me to amanda blank, whose tunes are crazy addicting.
ernie ate a little bit of a daylily yesterday, just something in our backyard, and ended up in the puppy ER. sad sad but he's going to be okay after an overnight stay and lots of meds and fluids, etc. so watch your pups when they roam outside.
