If you can tough out the minute or two of loading time (and I recommend it), you HAVE to check out the homemade clothing over at Aita or “sheep” in Latvian. The website alone is worth a look. It’s certainly the neatest I’ve seen in some time. jealous.
In the Spirit of New Music Tuesday (below), I thought it proper to show you a brilliant music video directed by the huge talents at Good Boy Creative. It’s Who made Who with their third single off “The Plot” titled “Keep Me In My Plane”. Check it out, it will make your life better…maybe.
Hey All, Welcome to this weeks NMT. Although I know you will enjoy my recommendations (yes-you-will!), I have a couple selections that (although I just discovered today) might be a few weeks old. If you’re a return visitor or music enthusiast you’ll know that usually happens when hunting for new music anyway.
I do hope you’ll take some time to check out these tracks as a few only get better the more you listen.
We’re preparing for a blizzard here in Utah, so I think I’ll go batten down the hatches and throw on an extra layer of clothes. Maybe the leopard skin tights?
Happy Tuesday to you.

I was intrigued by the works of Italian designer Daniele Del Nero. He has created these paper structures resembling buildings and houses…and covered them in flour and a layer of mold. Then after a time, he simply photographs the outcome as a still life. He says of the work…
“My purpose is to talk about the sense of time and destiny of the planet after
the human species, through the sense of restlessness which abandoned buildings
are able to communicate.”

This 45 second spot created by Andreas Nilsson for the Swedish Pension Fund is brilliant and beautiful. It doesn’t seem to follow the usual cheesy feel of other advertisments with the same idea. Instead, it takes a more eerie quiet and makes it powerful and strange at the same time. Very cool.
Oh and By-the-By…Longboarding NAKED? It’s now on my bucket list.
Los Angeles based artist Mattia Casalegno has designed a wearable sensory device titled “The Open” that forces you to smell fresh cut grass while listening to your own breath. As it states on his site…
“The work plays with the Deleuzian notion of “ritornell” (refrain), and about the quality of sound to define a territory. The space defined by the sound of breathing is in a state of costant imbalance between the physical act and its sensory perception and traces an unstable relationship with the intimate environment the garment reproduces.”
I for one…would love to have a go of it. I love the smell of fresh cut grass, and with the winter at our heels, the idea sounds just right. 🙂
