beautiful losers.

I bought this book a few years ago. It is now a documentary with the same title that follows the careers and lives of a collective group of do-it-yourself artists, like Thomas Campbell, Ed Templeton, Chris Johanson, and Barry McGee to name a few. Watch the trailer here and feel good.

the happiest book in the world.

Everything I love put into one simple book by Alex Ostrowski: happiness, handwritten type, photography and lots of line drawings.  I only wish I could have a copy for myself.

rats with wings.

Pigeons are amusing birds. And speaking of pigeons, I have come across Brian Pigeon's photostream on flickr.  He is ridiculous and witty and ridiculously witty. Make sure to read the titles of each of his pigeon photos. I've particularly enjoyed how he knows every pigeon by their first name.

early birth day.

I came home last night to a humongous box staring at me. I was going to wait until my actual birthday to open it but woke up this morning feeling like a child, anxious to see what was in it. 

An early birthday gift from my friend, Jacque. I called her this morning to thank her, "Did I tell you that I'm obsessed with pigeons right now?" She replied, "No, but I remember you pointing out a print of a pigeon and liking it."

I love that she understands my impetuous love for things.

fire it up.

"You can feel it in your gut that there's something happening here." 

I'm looking forward to waking up early and voting tomorrow. Check out the collection of poster art that this election has inspired.

sundays.

I've been up since 9 am and can't seem to pull myself out of bed except to make my cup of coffee with chocolate syrup. I have, however, spent my time wisely by looking up fun things like this website. Simple typography, simple goals, phrased in ways that don't mean just one thing. I like that.
