the future is only the recycled pieces of your past.
Presents!! I am currently experiencing a renewed obsession with mash-ups! Here are a few of my new favorites, some classics and a few random tracks I found hiding in the cd collection, all zipped up and ready to play.
* bonus - there is some wee album art for your itunes or cd cover pleasure. most of these tracks have been renamed by yours truly.
UPDATE - two, two, two cds in one!(basically you get everything twice), however the source file has only one copy. ugg. technology.

How do we live without these things?! Marie - Louise Gustafsson has cornered the market on comical, functional, modernist design for the home and workspace. I need, need, need the chair!

the most functional desk for a temperamental designer

Last night I had a dream that I was back in San Francisco hailing a cab. Imagine my surprise to find this dude driving and rockin' out to the Immi track, "Glittering Clouds". I do believe I woke up with a smile plastered on my face.
I will totally take that trip!

You never know what you will encounter when you step out your front door. Today I saw:
1. a lone tire rolling down the street, unaccompanied by a car, complete with wheel
2. a homeless man trying to walk through the drive-thru
3. a photo shoot for Sean John/Roca Wear-esque fashions, with enough bling to blind drivers
I love life in this city!

That’s odd, she thought.
In the rearview mirror is the same car as when she pulled out of the Piggly Wiggly parking lot. She contemplates picking up the cell phone in her purse and calling someone but fishes out a Marlboro Ultra Light instead. With her thumb she presses in the car’s lighter and increases the volume of the radio.
A slight cough escapes her lips and she glances again at the mirror. Still there. Click. The lighter pops out and she pulls it close to the end of the cigarette. She considers that she should quit, for what must be the hundredth time today. Oops. It’s already lit, so she shrugs and puffs away. With her left hand she cranks down the window to let the smoke out.
The black mustang rolls along behind her and makes no attempt to disguise that it’s a tail.
She smokes and sings along to Frank Sinatra. Left. Then right. Left again, down the long street that leads to her apartment. It’s nothing special. Just a post war building with little charm, save for the bright and cheery azaleas out front. She pulls into the drive and shuts down the engine. Purse, bag from the grocery, and keys, she takes inventory as she bumps the door closed with a free hip.
The black mustang pulls to the curb and grows quiet. A door opens and shuts.
On the porch she fishes out the house key and pushes on the front door. Inside she puts down the groceries and drops the keys into a dish in the hall. She turns around and finds the man from the black mustang standing inside with her.
“Oh,” is all she says.

I am not sure how I feel about corp. partnerships in general, but I have to say, this one makes me smile (and giggle a little). I have no idea how Sprint is getting away with a Planned Parenthood hook-up, but good for them! You can track the buzz at de feed.
My only question is this: what kind of financial trouble do you have to be in to use birth control to sell cell phones? Because I cannot believe that Sprint actually wants to promote a better, more responsible future. Although they were the first to bring back nights and weekends starting at 7pm...
* this wee promotion is strangely missing from the Sprint site. gee really?

Moms invited me to see the David Mamet play, Speed the Plow, at the newly renovated Geffen Playhouse. Sweet!
This production ended strongly but opened slow. A bit over written and thus over acted, but still very enjoyable. I found myself contemplating the underlying message (or overlying) during the third act and laughing while tearing up.
The message: When do you become more than your word, more than your friendships and how do you choose to act on this power?
The best lines:
"You can't erase Jesus!"
"You're a whore. You think 'cause you use your legs, you're a Ballerina?"
"I wanted to do good and became foolish."
mom and me. why do I look naked?
the feel good bonus - the house was full! yay LA art support!

SURE FIRE PARTY KILLER COCKTAIL
WINE SPARKLERS: Perk up your next warm-weather party the way its done in Austrian wine country: by mixing sparkling water or 7-Up with white wine. Served over ice with skewered grapes, it's bubbly refreshment at its best.
* Um, no.
THERE IS NO EXCUSE
People, you don't have to wear this ridiculous get up! If you did I never would have gone sky diving myself!

the look most Angelino's are sporting today
Rain? But we are in Los Angeles!? I know that everyone is as surprised as me to find Dallas Raines was on target with his forecast. Be safe in the traffic and if you are bound for LAX tonight, I think it is safe to assume there will be delays.
* thanks cuteoverload for the image!
