Post image for welcome to building 25!

coming to work this morning was really exciting – we left work on friday having packed up all our stuff and said goodbye to building 15 – and we came in today to a brand new building.  i am still completely blown away – the people who designed and decorated this new space did an unbelievable job, and i am in awe that this is where i get to work.

Post image for sunday funday

i thought saturday at the xpn festival would be tough to top but sunday just might have… the weather could not have been better and the bands were amazing. i was fortunate enough to have a media pass so i was able to watch the shows from a spot directly in front of the stage – i have tons of great photos to share! but for now here are some photos of the atmosphere on sunday…

we took the ferry over to camden from penn’s landing – definitely the way to go! you get some great views of the philly skyline and ben franklin bridge.

what better way to spend our last morning in building 15 than with a birthday party, cake and mimosas?

happy friday!

this is such a cool idea! “life in a day” is a cinematic experiment produced by ridley scott and directed by kevin macdonald, together with the youtube community.   the goal is to capture a snapshot, through many different eyes, of what life is like on earth during one 24 hour period.  how are they going to do this?

they are asking YOU – anybody and everybody – to chronicle their life on one day, july 24 2010. this could be your daily routine, your job, what you’re afraid of, what you love, a pretty sunset, ANYTHING. you can then upload your video on the project’s website, and the most compelling and distinctive videos will be edited into the final feature film.  the film will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2011 – and if your video is used, you’ll be credited as a co-director and have a shot at being one of 20 people who gets to go to sundance to celebrate with kevin macdonald.

ummm…..wow? i’m curious, what would your film be about?

My husband and I and our lab will be driving 12 hours across the midwest that day. That would be fun to document.

Post image for it’s all about the music

one of my favorite music festivals is taking place this weekend! the XPoNential music festival is an annual three-day festival put together by the university of pennsylvania’s public radio station, WXPN. it’s pretty much the only radio station i listen to- not because i went to school there, but because they play the BEST music. i cannot tell you how many new bands i have discovered through them. anyway this year i think they have put together their best lineup yet! here are some of the bands playing:

one
grace potter & the nocturnals; the felice brothers

two
yo la tengo; the walkmen

three
these united states; blood feathers

five
dawes; robert randolph & the family band

four
dr. dog; edward sharpe & the magnetic zeros

the festival is held at wiggins park, a really cute spot on the waterfront in camden. they have lots of local vendors, good food, good people- and the best part is how small the festival is. the first time i went i got to meet jim james from my morning jacket at the side of the stage – really exciting for me since they’re one of my favorite bands. can’t wait for this weekend! i will be taking lots of photos for the blog, so stay tuned.

and here is a playlist of songs by the bands listed above!

Post image for rose bowl treasures

prior to opening our new store in costa mesa, ca, a couple of our display team members who work out on the west coast made a trip to the rose bowl flea market to pick up some props for the store.  one of them shared her photos from the shopping excursion and i found myself practically drooling over the blankets, accessories and various little trinkets she found.  philly needs a (monthly!!) flea market like this! i would be in heaven.

read more to see lots more photos!
