monday quote

“be not the slave of your own past. plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep and swim far, so you shall come back with self-respect, with new power, with an advanced experience that shall explain and overlook the old.”

gimme shelter

yesterday we told you about a show taking place at johnny brenda’s to benefit the philadelphia independent artist collective vox populi.
i went to their website to check out some of the artists and I was inspired by these paintings by local artist kate stewart, who’s work explores notions of escape and shelter.

check out her website and more of her work here.

so wild

after months of anticipation…where the wild things are is finally out in theaters today. this is one of my favorite books of all time and i cannot wait to see how it translates to the big screen.

check out the urban outfitters feature on wtwta, which includes an interview with director spike jonze.
going to see it? let me know how you like it!

i absolutely loved this film, because it recognized that kids feel big feelings respected the fears and angers and joys of children and recognized them as legitimate. the roller coaster of emotions perfectly captured childhood. to me, it was one of those movies that you need to digest a little; the more time goes on and the more it sinks in, the more i love it.

I just saw it today night and I loved it!! I think it was very symbolic, artsy and unique Now I want to buy the toys, I really love the characters! I really enjoyed the movie :)

hidden treasure

those of you in the san francisco bay area this weekend should check out the treasure island music festival, taking place saturday and sunday. the annual festival typically chooses a lineup of dance-friendly acts for saturday and more low-key acoustic acts to mellow out to on sunday. this year, saturday will feature mgmt, girl talk and passion pit, among others, while sunday has a killer lineup including the flaming lips, grizzly bear, yo la tengo, vetiver and edward sharpe and the magnetic zeros.

not to mention, the scenery is breathtaking.

if any of you go, let us know how it is and send pictures!

this is good news.

i was devastated when news broke that the production of polaroid film was being discontinued, because I’ve always loved the instantaneous, old-school quality of the photos. but polaroid announced on tuesday that they will restart production of analog instant film for vintage polaroid cameras in 2010!
the comeback is due in part to the success of the impossible project, a group that has been working on saving polaroid products ever since their discontinuation was announced.
urban outfitters was a huge supporter of the impossible project, as well – check out the feature that appeared on their blog here:

photos by the very talented jennifer rumbach, who worked on the impossible project.
