sunday

sunday at bonnaroo is usually pretty mellow. the weekend is coming to an end and people are tired, but there’s a headliner that night to close out the weekend. i honestly don’t know if i’ll stick around to see this year’s closer, dave matthews band, but i’ll probably check out these shows:

Post image for crochet bike spotted

this bike, entirely covered in crochet, was spotted on the streets of new york last week…

apparently it is by ny-based artist olek as part of an exhibition.

the windows are crochet as well!

the bike reminds me of our summer store displays:

one of our readers, annaliese, emailed me a little while back about a sculpture she had created that she wanted to share. she didn’t send any photos but her description was enough to peak my curiosity. i asked her to send along some photos as well, and here they are! read on for the description of the sculpture in her words…

“i made a tree branch grow forth from inside of an unwanted book, bringing life to the pages whose words have been forgotten, left in a charity shop where its bright green cover with a black silhouette of a forest and frolicking rabbits dancing about the undergrowth caught my gaze and sparked my imagination. within the grasp of the branch i made a nest from lines of text that i built up to become a home for a family of birds. above the nest the last bird is flying the nest, facing the time of flight or fall, beating its wings against the invisible air to reach that open sky its desperate gaze is locked onto, leaving behind an empty nest where a single feather lays, lingering like a memory, a remnant of the past.

the book is called “the forest lovers” and was the only material used for this sculpture with glue to bind its former flat pages together.”

what a beautiful description and sculpture! thanks so much for sharing, annaliese.

Post image for bonnaroo lineup – part one

in the days leading up to a music festival like bonnaroo, it’s hard to think about anything else.  one of the first things you need to think about before going are what bands you definitely want to see, because it is never possible to see them all. there are two stages and three tents which all have shows going on simultaneously, so sometimes two acts you want to see will be playing at the same time.  bonnaroo announced the festival schedule last week and i immediately printed it out and highlighted the bands i want to check out.

here’s a look at some highlights on thursday and friday!

thursday

unfortunately we aren’t getting there until friday- so i was a little bummed about missing these acts!

fanfarlo

loacalnatives1

local natives

trapper

blitzen trapper

the-xx

the xx

friday

here’s my tentative lineup for friday, which is jam packed with good bands…

Edward+Sharpe++the+Magnetic+Zeros+All+band

edward sharpe & the magnetic zeros

Dr+Dog+drdog3

dr. dog

st_shehim

she & him

the_national3

the national

Les-31

les claypool

0703_kings_of_leon_c

kings of leon

the kings of leon will headline friday night – fp jemma and i were talking about this the other day and we agreed – we want to hear the old stuff! i can do without the latest album please play “trani” and “joe’s head”!

late night

another great thing about bonnaroo? it never stops.  the shows go on late into the night and into the early morning. a couple of years ago my morning jacket went onstage at midnight and played until 4am – one of the greatest shows i’ve ever seen. if you can hang in, the late night shows are always good for dancing… here are some good ones on friday night/saturday morning:

Flaming-Lips-scream

the flaming lips

theblackkeys-promo

the black keys

lcd

lcd soundsystem

the first predicament of the weekend – the flaming lips play from 12am – 2am and the black keys from 12am – 1:30am.  i love the black keys so normally this would be an easy pick, but the flaming lips rock too and they’ll be playing  pink floyd’s the dark side of the moon in its entirety with star death and white dwarfs.  which would you see??

here’s a playlist of the above artists for you to enjoy!

YOU MUST GO SEE THE FLAMING LIPS! i saw them about two months ago and they played Eclipse and Brain Damage from Dark side of the moon, and of course they played their new cd. It was unbelievable. A TOTAL MUST SEE! I love the black keys too, but the flaming lips show is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Go, see, love.

see the flaming lips!

Post image for book club selection #3!

it’s a new month and it’s time for a new book club selection! for this selection we went with something that is very different from our last two, but similar in its messages about freedom and happiness.  the book is called “succulent wild woman” by sark, and was recommended by a fp girl here at the home office who told us she has given the book to all of her girlfriends because it is so full of positive inspiration.  plus, it’s a nice change since our last book (the perks of being a wallflower) focused on a male character and was written from a male perspective.  if you’re not familiar with sark, check out her website here.

we’ll give you all some time to check out the book and start reading, and then i’ll be posting images, quotes and inspiring passages from the book in the coming weeks. hope you enjoy!

ohmygosh!! gushing! i love love her... found this in a box in a used book sale and it was like nothing i'd ever seen! i think i read it all in the store! :) one of the top 10 books every woman should have!
Catherine -Jun 02, 2010, 1:39AM
I have actually read this book! Loved, loved, loved it! Very encouraging and inspiring! Good pick!

My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

Post image for summer getaways – the city

she’s the body conscious party girl who always seems to find herself with an occasion to dress up, put on some heels and flutter her lashes. her coolness exudes confidence and she and her friends draw attention from every corner. a night on the town, dinner and drinks with girlfriends, and daytime shopping are her favorite pastimes, mixed in with a drop of boy fun. sometimes it’s a mystery where you’ll find her, but she’ll catch your eye when you do.

she is ginger and her summer getaway is the city that never sleeps – new york. she is in her element among the crowds and stops traffic wherever she goes.  a day of shopping is capped off with drinks with her girlfriends overlooking the sparkling city lights.  she only returns to her suite as the sun comes up. located in chelsea, the xx suite is stylish yet affordable, with plenty of room for her to bring back some friends for a late night dance party before tired heads hit the pillow, in need of a good beauty sleep.

ginger3

for her getaway ginger makes  sure to pack plenty of body con items to wear out on the town, with killer heels and eye catching jewelry.  the only other thing she needs are some skinny jeans and a cute top for brunch and daytime shopping excursions.

ginger2

1. rainbowed druzy ring; 2. solid dinner time dress; 3. solid poison ivy tunic; 4. golden sunburst cuff; 5. chiffon and mesh slip and siwy hannah crop skinny jeans; 6. dallas studded side sling; 7. fontana platform wedged heel; 8. easy corset slip.
