I've been reading and hearing about quinoa for years, but never actually tasted it until last week. I saw a bag of organic quinoa at the grocery store and bought it on a whim. I like couscous, so I figured I would like this, too. I like it even more!

I think you should treat yourself today. Go to iTunes and download the album Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix by the French band Phoenix. Go ahead, I'll wait.
Okay, so that track Lisztomania? Phoenix shot an official video for it, and it was pretty cool, and they were happy. But then this girl thought how much better the song would be set to dance scenes from 80's movies. So she did it. We're talking perfect shots from The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, Footloose and Mannequin (yes that is Kim Cattrall).
I know, right?!?!
P.S. - Cameron's dad's house is for sale.

This is not a post about bottled water. I think bottled water is ridiculous in theory and incredibly wasteful in practice - from the waste generated by all that plastic or glass, and the energy needed to produce and transport it all, then to recycle the bottles if they are not just tossed in the trash, which they usually are. Quite frankly, most bottled water is from municipal water sources - the same place your tap water comes from. So suck it up and buy a Brita filter and some stainless steel bottles. Save yourself some money.

Man, I wish I had an autotuner.
My husband and I currently share an office, and we've both been doing a lot of work in it over the past few weeks. This is great except I like to work totally uninterrupted and become surly after the eighth time being asked something he could totally just Google OMG.
I'm thinking autotuned R&B answers would quickly nip that in the bud.

I was stood up by the New Kids on the Block yesterday. Pathetic, right? Sadly, this is not the first time this has happened. The first time I was supposed to interview them was last September. They didn't even call and cancel; I was totally stood up. And they did it again! I am totally removing them from my Twitter feed. No one cares about that tink business anyway.

Director Chris Milk is best known for creating powerful videos for the likes of Kanye West, U2 and Green Day, but I think this is his best work yet. A life in 42 seconds, "Last Day Dream" was Milk's entry in the Bejing 42x42 film festival.
Been in the midst of a website redesign over at Bloom Creatives, my main business site. Check it out and let me know what you think!

Check out this absolutely amazing video by the Firekites:
The song is called "Autumn Story." The entire thing is chalkboard illustrations; no computer animation was used. You can see the hundreds of little erased sketches in each shot used to get an old fashioned moving cartoon look. Beautiful song, delightful and original video.
