this is music...

Ten years ago a group of us rented a van and drove from Miami to Atlanta to see one of our favorite bands perform. That band was The verve. One of my all time favorite bands and Richard Ashcroft, easily the most beautiful man to walk the earth. Long story short, they break up and break my heart. Ten years later they get back together and Damian and i have tickets to see them both nights in NYC. We are front row center both nights. They were amazing and Mr. Ashcroft has not aged a bit.

i want it all!

When I'm not wearing your standard New Yorker black, gray and white color pallet, I'm probably in red, navy and white. Stripes and solids, in every combination. I don't think of it as patriotic, maybe Parisian. I am after all the girl dressed in red, white and blue the first time I visited the Eiffel Tower! DORK!

Thats why I'm in love with Marc by Marc Jacobs spring collection. Beautiful, primary color pieces that look like they were plucked off of Anna Karina herself.

Cai Guo-Qiang: I Want to Believe

Please, run on over to the Guggenheim and marvel in Cai Guo-Qiang's , I Want to Believe exhibit. One of the best art shows i've seen all year and the best usage of an art space. Take my word for it, go now! One suggestion, don't try to figure out how he made these pieces come to fruition. It will only make your brain hurt!

Damian and i went to a taping of the Martha Stewart show today. Yes I'm a dork and yes, Damian is a saint for coming along with me. A couple years ago something changed in me and i became obsessed with Martha. I still get excited when i receive my issue of living in the mail every month. The filming was fun, the middle aged women loved us and we went home with an english rose to plant in our garden!

The weather was gorgeous, so we strolled on over to the west village and took some photos with a happy springtime skunk hanging out in the window display of the Marc Jacobs store.

Later we had a Magnolia cupcake, witnessed a near knife fight in the park and saw some guy on the train trying to speed solve a Rubik's Cube while timing himself. It was a wonderful day. The kind of day you could only have in NYC in the springtime.

haunted by you

I bought this photo at a flea market a couple weeks ago. I think it's so sad when photos lose their homes. It means people have moved on and forgotten. I think this photo is gorgeous, just look at those eyes. Now she has a home.

naive melody

At first i played this song because i felt like i needed a lil bedroom dancing this morning, to get me into a productive, happy beautiful mood. Then i remembered that my friend Steven played this song for his fiance' after proposing to her. I sat down and read the lyrics and couldn't stop crying. Best love song ever



Home is where I want to be
Pick me up and turn me round
I feel numb - born with a weak heart
I guess I must be having fun
The less we say about it the better
Make it up as we go along
Feet on the ground
Head in the sky
It's ok I know nothing's wrong . . nothing

Hi yo I got plenty of time
Hi yo you got light in your eyes
And you're standing here beside me
I love the passing of time
Never for money
Always for love
Cover up and say goodnight . . . say goodnight

Home - is where I want to be
But I guess I'm already there
I come home - she lifted up her wings
Guess that this must be the place
I can't tell one from another
Did I find you, or you find me?
There was a time Before we were born
If someone asks, this is where I'll be . . . where I'll be

Hi yo We drift in and out
Hi yo sing into my mouth
Out of all those kinds of people
You got a face with a view
I'm just an animal looking for a home
Share the same space for a minute or two
And you love me till my heart stops
Love me till I'm dead
Eyes that light up, eyes look through you
Cover up the blank spots
Hit me on the head Ah ooh
