    Vampire Weekend is pretty good tunes to listen to while stumbling around the house. I also love anything Karen O touches. Her work on “Where the Wild Things Are” was really fun and entertaining…

    your blog is one of most lovely photoblogs around.
    i love that it’s inspiring and full of all the kinds of yummy filmy photographs i adore but…
    i also love that you are a guy.
    so many of my favourite blogs are run by women and i am always looking for great boy blogs, so it’s just really lovely and refreshing.
