The Simpsons + Mondrian + Wine 

"Wine, or maybe not? is a playful, minimalist wine bottle design project that will bring a smile to your face. Inspired by the style of famous Dutch painter Pieter Mondrian, the collaborative project was developed by Russian artist Constantin Bolimond and Dmitry Patsukevich in 1987, the same year The Simpsons first aired on The Tracey Ullman Show. And, the contents of the bottle have remained a mystery ever since.” 

I don’t even care what the wine tastes like, but the Simpsons & a Mondrian design mashup? In. To. This.

Today was the first time a couple of my friends had been to my loft, and when they were looking around, Jenni & Kris joked that I since didn’t have any photos of my fictional husband out, we must not really be fake married. I told them there was one, and that they just weren’t looking hard enough. 
Eventually, they found it.

I have all kinds of brunch leftovers, including fruit salad, streusel, breakfast pizza, orange & grapefruit juices, champagne and a few other things. I forgot how exhausting it is to cook for more than one person, but it was worth it. I’m usually the one driving north to see this tight knit group of girlfriends (because it’s easier for one person to travel than six) but it’s really great when they come down to see me. We’ve known each other since high school, and although I don’t really talk to many people from those days anymore, we’ve remained close all these years and they are a big part of my life. Getting together with them every couple of months and spending time together is really good for my soul.

If you want brunch for dinner, come on over.

Guys? Guys! Ben(retracingben)’s monthly mix tape is out today! Click here for his I Just August 14 picks!
Best Friday of a holiday weekend ever or best Friday of a holiday weekend ever?! (yes and yes)
Thanks, Ben!

I always send my mixes to Jules first because I know she’s going to post them, and that makes me happy. But anyone is welcome to listen. There’s nothing like a good mixtape, even if it’s virtual, and I own none of the songs, and not everyone can listen to them. Wait, you know what, maybe it’s not all it’s cracked up to be. It’s still fun, and I enjoy making them. I do one every month. Charlie does too, and they’re awesome.

There really is nothing like a good mix tape! I know exactly how much work and thought goes into them—no matter who puts them together—and I look forward to seeing Ben’s link in my Spotify inbox every month. I’m on my 2nd listen of this one already, and I often go back to the old ones, too.
Each of these mixes has introduced me to more than a few groups I’d never heard of before. I told him last month that no matter how often I look for and listen to new music on my own (and I do, every week), it’s like reaching into the galaxy and only grabbing a few stars. There’s so much out there, and it’s a gift when people want to share songs with each other… either one-by-one here on Tumblr, or in a great Spotify mix. Talking about and sharing music is one of my favorite things. I love it.

It’s probably better that I’m no good at illustration, because this is the kind of thing my brain comes up with.

I’m a photographer and a designer, but not an illustrator. If I were, I’d take some time tonight to draw Paula Abdul in a sword fight with herself, just so I can live in a world where something is titled, Paula Abduel.

Maybe the talented suizdejinn can do this in his spare time. (Like anybody has spare time anymore.)
