I really like everything about this photo, from the huge, regal library to the mess of glowing tents on the floor. I want to be a part of whatever this was.

USA Bookcase / I want that

"The name of this piece-’Oh, the Farmer and the Cowman Should be Friends’. A one off piece designed for Timothy Taylor Gallery in London by designer Ron Arad. The United States make an excellent storage space for your favorite tomes. Wouldn’t it be fun to give each state a theme? For instance: western novels in Arizona, beach reads in Florida, Oprah’s book club in Illinois." - Description from here

The Irrepressibles - In This Shirt

The Irrepressibles are a theatrical chamber pop orchestra from London. "A what?!", you say. I've never heard of such a thing before but I am glad it exists. When I first heard In This Shirt Jamie McDermott's haunting voice easily held my attention even though it was somewhat saddening. I think this video will do the exact same thing. It's actually a promotional clip from a movie called The Forgotten Circus and the dancing has an enchanting quality. In a world where people are quickly distracted before the end of a 90 second youtube video, the 5+ minutes just float by.

Mumford and Sons - Lover's Eyes

Last night at The Pageant I saw Mumford and Sons and it was woooonderful. They played five songs they call new but to a serious Mumford fan they have become familiar after listening to them many times through different youtube videos. A song that has been stuck in my head since last night is Lover's Eyes, specifically the "I walk slow" portion of the song. 

Matthew and the Atlas and Low Anthem also opened for Mumford. I would suggest checking out both bands. Matthew's voice (from Matthew and the Atlas, obviously) sounds like what a 1,000 year oak tree would sound like if it could sing. And The Low Anthem included multiple clarinets and whistling into cellphones whilst holding them up to the mic.

Carving the Mountains - Longboard Girls Crew

Seeing the "Longboard Girls Crew" fly at high speeds down a mountain road near Madrid only reinforces my unexplored high school desire to be a skater. I've always said if I went on the MTV show Made I would want to be made into a skateboarder or bmx biker. Definitely sticking with that. The video also seems a bit like an advertisement for long, straight hair. It does look nice under a helmet...
