MONDAY MUSIC SHARE: “Ok, it’s alright with me” by Eric Hutchinson

I’ve been playing around with a few different channels on Pandora and I am loving this artist … his sound and the mix of music that comes from his genre. His music sits in with the Matt Wertz, Dave Barnes, Matt Nathanson sound - which are all favorite sounds of mine.

I actually remember my first time seeing Eric Hutchinson live. It was at Cain’s Ballroom back in like 2007, opening up for One Republic. This was at the height of “Apologize” fame. I only had tickets because one of my customers at Mimi’s Cafe actually gave me his tickets. It was weird but awesome. But I definitely remember having a conversation with my friend Christina about how impressed we were with Eric Hutchinson’s music.

Anyways. I chose this video because it’s a live recording. I do a lot of acoustic videos, but sometimes live music is just better. I need to plan on going to more concerts this year.

Where I Want To Be

I would like to spend my day here.  

I think it would be lovely.  To either set up shop and be completely productive in busy work on my computer.

Or to share coffee conversations with good friends.  Either scenario would be nice.

But instead I’ll be spending today at the airport.  En route to LAX for a bit.  

Traveling.  Transitions.  All that fun stuff.  

I’ll just be happy to feel settled in again and have that adorable coffee shop feel again.  There’s just something about being surrounded by books and sipping coffee.  Like it’s a better atmosphere for reflecting or brainstorming or whatnot.

But that’s it for now.  I just wanted to say hello.

Happy Thursday!  

STYLE ICON / Alexa Chung

I agree, Lucky Mag.  Alexa is one of my favorite style icons.  Maybe because she works a lot with Madewell.  

But I particularly like this pic for it’s little bits … the bike, the cute bow tie (like the Forage one that I have but haven’t worn), the cardigan, the photography direction.  I tend to look at the way pictures are shot and edited.  I like this one.  I’d probably pin it to my inspiration board if I had one.  


Alexa can do no wrong

5 Things Tuesday

1  INTERACTIVE NEW GIRL VIDEO - if you’re a big fan of Zooey Deschanel’s show “New Girl” then you might like this new interactive music video of the show’s theme song.  It’s so cute!  And you get to choose where the video goes.  There’s so many different choices to go through - it’s quite adventurous!  I’ve already watched the video 4 times, trying out each of the party themes.  But I could probably keep going since there are over 900 ways to watch it.  

I’m kind of digging the new Interactive Video thing.  First Madewell did one for Christmas and now this one.  I love the concept and it’s tons of fun … I love creative marketing at its best!

2  SPEAKING OF ZOOEY - this is totally happening this coming weekend.  Awesome.

3  OMG CUTEST BABY EVER - This is my friend’s little baby, Amos.  Isn’t he a cutie??  Check out the whole “King of the kitchen” photo series HERE.

4 KENDI LEA’S NEW ONLINE STORE IS UP - I’ve love this girl’s style for quite a while.  I wish my wardrobe was made up of all the clothes featured on her blog.  Well her storefront opened up recently but it’s all the way in Dallas.  Too far.  At least now she has an online storefront now (site by Moxee - another one of my favorite bloggers) … and it’s hot.  You should check it out HERE.

I still need to do a 30x30 Remix.  I should add that to my To-Do list for 2012.  Yes. 

5  A DAY IN DOWNTOWN SEATTLE - My sister and I took our cousins out to visit the city and see the main touristy Seattle sites.  You know, the Pike’s Place Market, the first Starbucks, the Gum Wall, the Space Needle.  We took tons of pictures, added gum to the wall, and overlooked the city from up top.  Lemme just say, being up in the Needle isn’t as nearly as scary as it was when I was 8.  I handled it much better this time :)

And since this is my last time seeing the city as a local (b/c I’m moving) I’m glad to have squeezed it in now.  Seattle - I love you.

That’s it for now folks!  HAPPY TUESDAY :)

MONDAY MUSIC SHARE - OK GO’s newest single “Needing/Getting”

So OK Go are creative geniuses.  When you think they can’t top A Million Ways they come out with Here It Goes Again … you know, that crazy treadmill music video.  But that’s just the beginning.  That’s soon followed by that  stop motion video and also that grandiose “machine” of sorts music video.  Now here they have a drivable musical course where the track is actually caught from microphones picking up the abstract music from the drive.  

Crazy.  But it works.  

OK Go.  Creative geniuses.  You’ve done it again.
