Links mar13

The Interweb is such a wonderful playground of knowledge, curiosities, new things to read, watch, listen to, eat. Taking inspiration from one of my favorite blogs, I'm kicking off my own collection of hand-picked links. Without further ado, here are a few that are click-worthy:


  • Even when I first met him as a young art student, my husband's always preached the "good design is essential to life" sermon. And he's right. This article may explain why. (The New York Times)
  • Super sick music video from Australian synth-pop band Clubfeet 
  • This week's 10 Best Dressed (p.s. Tilda Swinton rocked it in Haider Ackermann; not so sure about Amanda Seyfried's sloppy Givenchy get-up). (Vogue)
  • I can't wait for Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut to hit theaters.  
  • All the rain and snow here in Cleveland inspires me to make soup. And lots of it. (Week of Menus)

(about 1.3 on a scale of 1 to 2 from void to solid. Pollock's Number 8, c. 1949.
