i feel within me
a peace above all earthly dignities,
a still and quiet conscience.

i’m not sure what’s better, their performance of “airplanes” or the guy who chases down a robber to get a girl’s purse back.

Post image for paint it colorful






i just noticed that lately i’ve been really drawn to face and bodypaint.  i keep saving photos of it. i love how it makes such a bold, colorful statement… but i’m not sure when or if i’d ever be able to pull this off…  if i was going to burning man i would definitely be rocking some paint.  what do you guys think?

I love it! This is pretty much my moto!! Why spend so much time being angry and sad, just act happy and then you'll be happy and you'll live a better life!

so true... i was just talking to a friend about this... if we spent 365 days a year being bothered by the things we hate, we would end up living in a sad sad world full of angry people. it is far greater for all and for oneself to give love and in the end we encounter happier people along the way... and life is that much greater. :)

Happy Friday

Post image for Happy Friday

Friday evenings are the best, you can let your hair down after a working week. Sleep until you want to wake up and not when the alarm tells you too.

I usually wake up on Saturdays cook breakfast and listen to music in a carefree mood, and relax.

I heart Fridays!

Is anyone doing anything fun?

JessofSoCal -Aug 17, 2010, 5:14PM
I just got back from camping at Seqouia National Park! Beautiful place to get away from my daily routine in the office!

Post image for almost famous

one of our newest items is this fuzzy faux fur jacket that we’ve dubbed the almost famous fur jacket. inevitably, images and snippets of the movie of that name come to mind.  there was a period of time when i was in college when i would watch this movie with my roommate to the point where we had it memorized and wanted to get a pet turtle and name it russell. i always felt like i was really meant to be a band-aid, traveling the states in a tour bus with a grungy long-haired band… living for music, love and nothing else.

here are some images, some from the movie and some from elsewhere, that make this feeling come rushing back.

here’s a clip of one of my favorite parts of the movie:
