i've been listening to a lot of australian singer/song writer lisa mitchell.  she is just so darling and fun.  i want to be her friend. 

this video of her doing a cover of the killer's "romeo and juliet"  is so lovely.  plus, i love the room she's in.  i, too, want my house filled with portraits in oil.

watch it.  also, you can watch her other music videos that are fun and quirky with a little bit of whimsy:
neopolitan dreams, coin laundry, clean white love, and incomplete lullaby.

thank you sarah for introducing her to me..

the cosmos

the other day, i was leafing through my friend's book on the cosmos.  it was incredible.  i really like stars, and planets and out of world objects.  just look at that image.  isn't it amazing!  to think that we are literally specks in vasts of other specks and darkness.  it really makes me feel humble and little.  but in a beautiful sort of way.

good news and bad news

bad news:  my sister left for london today.  good news:  she left me her car.  bad news:  it's manual, and i just learned how to drive stick.  good news: i drove the car from SLC airport to Provo without stalling.

i guess when push comes to shove, this is really neutral news.

my weekend in pictures

katie, hugging her teddy.

making brownies with the secret ingredient... teddy grahams.

i might have gotten a little overzealous about decorating my room.

watching our friends dominate in soccer.

previous episode (modern warfare) = best episode EVER!


i am really liking these images by erwin olaf.  "yum"  might not be the best way to describe them.  the collection is called "grief."  i really like it.  i think the images have a simplicity.  i love the lighting and the composition of the shots.  i also really like the story told in each shot.  like in the first one, there is a definite narrative.

i spotted these images here.  i looked at more of his work here.  i quite like him, espcially his rain, hope, and seperation.  but be careful if you chose to browse the rest of his collections.  they do contain nudity.

jeremy messersmith

if anyone wants or needs a chill musician, this is the guy.  he has a hauntingly beautiful voice and his music is just as haunting and just as beautiful.

here's a girl a boy and a graveyard (lyrics bellow):


lucy takes the long way home
meets me in a field of stone
she says "i don't know how i'm s'pose to feel
my body's cold my guts are twisted steel."

and i feel like i'm some kind of frankenstein
waiting for a shock to bring me back to life
but i don't want to spend my time
waiting for lightning to strike.


so underneath the concrete sky
lucy puts her hand in mine
she says "life's a game we're meant to lose.
but stick by me and i will stick by you."

cause i'm like a princess in a castle high
waiting for a kiss to bring me back to life
but i don't want to spend my time
waiting for just another guy.


no. 11

bleecker street

"I heard a church bell softly chime
In a melody sustainin'
It's a long road to Caanan
On Bleeker Street
Bleeker Street"
