So my awesome friend Carla ( told me about this project. The Save-A-Seed Coalition is spreading the word about the Millennium Seed Bank. The Millennium Seed Bank seeks to develop a global conservation network, capable of safeguarding wild plant species. All life on Earth depends on plants. So saving seeds saves plants that are vital to all ecosystems. It is thought that 60,000 to 100,000 plant species are under threat and the Millennium Seed Bank provides an insurance policy against the extinction of plants in the wild and provides options for their future use. Plants are essential for food, medicine, fuels, building materials and many other products. Saving seeds is important for the conservation and future utilization of many plants. This project is funded through public donations so the next time you feel like doing a good deed, donate to this amazing project. And, if you're a blogger, blog about this project and send your blog post over the the Save-A-Seed Coalition at

Ladyhawke... My Delirium

Can't believe I havent posted any Ladyhawke yet. Perhaps it's the rock I was living under for the last month...

Super Fun...

Today was just another average day. Oh, except one thing... I learned how to skateboard. Yup... Sure did. And it was awesome. I didn't even fall once (thanks B). Think I'm ready for one of these.

This video does two things... Makes me want to make an awesome stop motion video (this one used over 4500 photos) and makes me want to go to italy realllll bad.

Passion Pit... Sleepyhead

I highly recommend turning this one up very loud...

But don't watch it when you've been drinking. Might get dizzy...

Friday, February 20, 2009


Pretty pumped... Just got official confirmation that I am in the New York Marathon in 2009. So excited. Lots of early mornings in the months ahead for me. Bet the BF is super excited that he will be woken up extra early very often.

Tuesday, February 17, 2009

Went and saw Inner Party System tonight at the cool spot if you're emo and in high school aka Soma. Pretty good show... Sweet laser action.

Super excited for the Casbah tomorrow night. Jessica Lea Mayfield is playing, whose album was produced by Dan Auerbach (of the Black Keys), and the Annuals are playing as well. Get yer tickets and come enjoy the music.

Fleet Foxes... Mykonos

Pretty excited that these guys will be at Coachella. It will be a pretty mellow performance, but I've never seen them and I can't wait!

This particular song makes me feel like I ought to be out on a yacht sailing in the isles drinking a ciparina (yummm...) without a worry in the world...

(calamari carlos)


so maureen talked me into it. i got a squid. and i named him calamari (how horrible) carlos. and today he "swam through a pod of conservationists." haha i love my squid. SQUID LOVE!

<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

if u kids haven't checked out the te-papa site...u kids should, you wont regret it, i promise!

look at my my little baby squid just puttin' along!


Happy Groundhog Day!!!

It's official... we have 6 more weeks of winter according to this little guy...

I on the other hand am rather excited about watching some great Bill Murray action tonight in celebration of this holiday. Groundhog Day has to be one of the best movies ever made and I know that Natasha has never seen it (she lived in a cave her whole life) so I am going to force her to watch this one.

(and in the mail it came)

seriously. critical mass was amazing, and I have spent the entire weekend recounting every single part of it (including the getting lost and going to point loma part) haha.

but BESIDES that, something new has captured my interest. something that came in the mail two seconds ago. my WHOPPER SACRIFICE....also known as the best thing to ever happen...EVAR.

a few weeks ago i wrote about a facebook application made by burger king that allows you to delete ten of your friends to receive a free whopper (of course, the application tells your "friend" you are deleting why you deleted them, which is....horribly amazing/bad-ass). eh-hem....who could resist? I am going to proudly present this to my local burger king tomorrow. oh man, this is going to be so so epic.

OH and i was just informed by our lovely maureen that today is groundhog day. Boy i live in a cave sometimes...Happy G Day affectionate people!!

hell yes, what an ugly cute mofo!!

Subway Air Monster

Natasha and I went and saw a performance artist downtown tonight at Sushi. Performance art is something that I still have a difficult time understanding, but, it was interesting nonetheless.

Another art form I am a huge fan of is street art... This particular piece is soooo cool. The Loch Ness monster is real!!!!!

We Survived...

Yes... we made it last night without any giant falls (although I did have a minor tumble that included me knocking over Nat a little... Sorry Nat!!!). And that was quite the rush. Yes, we got separated from the group fairly early (how you lose 1200 other bicyclists, I'm not quire sure, but we managed to do that just fine). We are determined to do it next month and not get separated. It's an amazing experience with such a great message.

To read more about it, copy and paste below...

Metronomy... A Thing For Me

Saw Metronomy the other night at Bar Pink in North Park. Boy oh boy do they put on a great show. Love the synchronized moves. A must see...


Ok... so I found this website a while back that sounds really lame... but I think its fun. You design and build a squid. I know it sounds kinda lame, but you get to save it and go back to check on your squid whenever you like and see what he (or she) has been up to. The other day my squid (Brett) made friends with a killer whale, swam with a blue whale, and just today he was out looking for suckers. Try it... you'll like it.

Critical Mass...

Ok... So I'm pretty excited for tonight... Except that I am going to attempt to do this on my beach cruiser. Not quite sure how well that is going to pan out. But I am definitely going to buy a helmet, knee pads, elbow pads, shin pads, and anything else I can get to prevent myself from dying. I'm pretty much going to look like this guy on a pink beach cruiser...

(ring rong)

oh man these are cool. i think their meant to be worn one-a-day for each day of the week or something...but screw that. I'm wearing them all at once because that's how cool i am. either that, or i'll give half of them to maureen, and then we'd be cool all the time!


(i've got to love me some animal tracks)

so these are amazing. coming from a hippie family that loves nature these are one hundred percent necessary. I could totally imagine sneaking up on my brother and putting tracks by his head for when he wakes up, and ultimately scaring him shitless!-THINK OF ALL THE PEOPLE YOU WOULD FOOL!!! BAHAHA!

oh man, rawr! you could even scare some peeps in the bathroom!

(Poor Leno, Royksopp)

wow i love this and i've been listening to this album all morning, one of my old favorites for sure. Melody AM = best!

(want it cause its cute and charming)

well, i don't know about charming, but this is a cute little nail brush that im sure any one would die to have (or die from having? tetanus anyone?) . quite obviously, its a nail-brush, you know to clean your nails with, but at the same time its a NAIL with a BRUSH on it...HO-LY-COW. haha.
no really though this brush is so cool, because somehow its made by blind people in a German factory for a puny thirty five bucks. yummmyyy



(good afternoon, monday)

just to brighten your little monday with some sugar on top!
this is horrible. but its funny. and please dont get offended Im Chinessseee too YU NO!

(i ride my bike)

besides hopelessly relying on public transportation since i've sold my little civic, i've been almost one hundred percent relying on my bike--and its so great.

Sunday morning bike rides are so so nice, especially in this great weather, right? RIGHT. I've pretty much been on my bike running errands all around town today with the boyfriend ever since i woke 10 AM, making me a bik-a-manic-a-holic. woohoo!

oh and the ad above is a sweet vintage Raleigh ad (which my dad ceaselessly is a collector of), anyone else have childhood memories of family bike rides on these old turkeys?


Saturday, January 10, 2009

(thank you MISTER B.)

i almost forgot to do something that is so JAWSOME and wow-ing--that i can't even believe i ALMOST forgot to do it.

this is my thank you times a ga-zillion-billion for our supa-cute, wonderful, delicious page header. BRETT you are AMAZING!!! seriously wow! thankya!!


oh, and HAPPY NEW YEARS TO YOU KIDS, i hope your holidays were wonderful :)


(a car-less bus ride)

::my bus-boredom creation::

i sold my car recently and now i'm carless, meaning i take the bus for just about two hours everyday to get to school and then back home. but its nice. for all you hippie commuters out there (i'm sure your doing it because you care about the planet, and not about your wallet (: ) sometimes there is just not much there.

MY FIVE FAVORITE Best Things to do on a Bus

1. SLEEP (can anyone argue that this is not the best answer for any free time?)
2. HOMEWORK/PAY.THE.BILLS (so awesome because when you get home you get free timeee)
3. PEOPLE.WATCH (one of my very very very favorite past-times)
5. LISTEN.TO.ROYKSOPP (somehow the beat of the music always follows the pattern of trees/buildings passing by, which is doubly amazing)

okay, so i originally wanted this to be "ten best things to do on a bus," but...yeah bus rides are just...BORING.



(what would you do for a whopper?)

the whopper sacrifice. its bad. for all you kids out there who are avid or not so avid facebook users, this is an application that Burger king made that rewards you for deleting ten of your friends. that's right. and what do you get in return? an AWESOMELY FUH-REE WHOPPER. but that's it.

I'm not going to lie, i totally partook in this...EVERYONE has those random friends on facebook or myspace that they talked to like once at a party, and have never ever seen since. what a way-worth it trade.

Just as a warning, this application for sure burns their profile picture.... and makes you feel slightly bad slash guilty. but whatever. ha!
