A Song For Today: Dark Dark Dark - Daydreaming

I've had this song on my hype machine playlist for quite a while. Whenever it comes on I'm like "Oh yeah this song! I love this song!" but then I sort of forget about it. Well I thought  it deserved a little time to shine. Definitely check out some other music by Dark Dark Dark as well. I highly recommend the song "In Your Dreams, " its heavy with accordion so its no wonder that I'm a fan.

Bye Bye Bicycle

Well sadly, my lovely (though old and rickety) little fuschia bike was stolen this weekend. Not only am I extremely angry at whoever this thief was, I seemed to have personified my bike and can't help but feel sorry for it all alone out there whereever it may be. It was a small fuschia cruiser, that might have been a teen girl's bike, with a few dents and a very squeeky spring in the seat, but I loved it anyway. In memory of my little bike I have compiled some pretty fashion/bicycle images. Click the link below to see all of the images.

When Starbucks started selling their mini desserts including the wondrous Cake Pops, I realized that I had been out of the loop on this whole cake pop phenomenon that seems to have taken over the cupcake craze. I approve of cake pops because they fit with my whole "just for the taste" philosophy. Basically I have a hard time making up my mind when ordering food, so I love it when i get to have a little bit of everything all on one plate, "just for the taste." That's why I'm a huge fan of things like tapas. After learning about the cake pop, I began wondering what other types of dessert pops exist. Well apparently there are all kinds!

Well folks, I've decided that managing two blogswas a little too much for me. While I loved my art and illustration blog, "Sign of the Seahorse," I've decided to stop posting there, and instead add an art+illustration section right here on my main blog. Hope you like it! 
(ps my blog is going through some growing pains at the moment, so my appologies if the layout is looking a little wonky)

Dalton Ghetti - Pencil Sculptures

After seeing this on the wonderful blog - Honestly WTF, I just had to repost the pictures. No these aren't giant pencil like sculptures, they are regular sized pencils with detailed micro sculptures carved into them by artist Dalton Ghetti.

Osheaga 2011

I'm currently recovering from a wild weekend of amazing music at the 2011 Osheaga Festival in Montreal. Montreal is full of fun festivals and activities all summer long, but this one is by far my & wild outfits, whats not to love? I have to say I'm a little bummed out now that its all over. The festival closed yesterday with an unbelievable psychedelic performance by The Flaming Lips. They truly put on one of the best live performances ever, equipped with wizard of oz characters, an onstage marriage, space bubbles and teletubbies. What I loved most is how positive and fun loving they are. The performance also reminded me of a much smaller scale act I saw at the jazz fest earlier in the month by Halifax's Rich Aucoin. Other highlights for me were a brilliant performance by my favourite band Beirut, Cypress Hill, Ohland, The Tragically Hip, Death From Above 1979, Sia, The Luyas, and Ratatat, to name a few.
