Happy Friday morning! I hope you’ll find this music video for Jemapur‘s song Maledict Car as mesmerizing as I do! I bet you will…
Ever heard of The Sketchbook Project? It’s awesome! Something like 2,000 people from around the country signed up, and were sent a blank Moleskine sketchbook. The only instructions were to send the books back by Feb 15th, and fill them with “everyone we know.” Art House, which is a group dedicated to bringing art to the masses, is responsible for the creation and managing of the project. I think that is so cool! I only wish I would have known in time to participate! But maybe next time?
For now, the books that Art House got back are going on tour, and tonight they stop in Philadelphia! Head over to Chris’ Jazz Cafe at 1421 Sansom Street tonight for a chance to flip through all the books. The books will be making the rounds at a bunch of other cities as well; click here to see a list of all the places and dates! Below find just a few pages of the many many books – click here to see a gallery of the submissions!

Your answers about which pages you liked most and your favorite kinds of music were really interesting!

Where she’s pulling him into the boat.

I like the romantic aspect of it, like the page when the girl comes and saves him from the water and when they’re on the island holding hands.
Congratulations to Kelsey!
I love old folk music like James Taylor and Joni Mitchell..
Hooray! And thank you again, to everyone, for participating! We will be doing another giveaway very soon- stay tuned!
I’m excited for this film Tokyo! based on the questions, “Do we shape cities, or do cities shape us?”
It helps that Michel Gondry is involved (director of Science of Sleep and Eternal Sunshine) and that the trailer looks so intriguing!

Here was her answer to the question “What is your favorite thing about the beach?”
My favorite thing about the beach is the sounds. Obviously, the ocean waves, the screech of seagulls and small children, pieces of conversation… I am so ready for summer to be here already. :P
This was fun! The answers to the animal question were hilarious. Scroll down a few entries and read them all.
