I got to shoot some video this weekend!  It featured some very heavy weighted barbells crashing to the ground and some one else’s camera (because my own is currently having some adolescent mood swings), so that was terrifying.  And it was my first time since I was sixteen and I thought I could be the next Paul Thomas Anderson.  And this all got me back into the name of visual storytelling.

Ever since I started blogging (back in my whee days of 2011 when I did most of it at a school library), I’ve had my eye on Todd Selby, otherwise known as The Selby.  His playfulness with his subjects, the way he gets all up in their spaces in the best way possible, and how he documents they daily lives of the creative class are so inspirational.  I could spend hours just going through each one of his stories.  And I did. Much to the chagrin of my grad school dissertation.  And then The Selby started shooting video. Which knocked me off my rocker.

So if you’ve got ten minutes to spare, check out his own little dissertation on organic dyer, Audrey Louise Reynolds.  She takes you through the whole gamut of organic dying and this is something that Cait and I will be experimenting with in weeks to come.  When we get through the other list of things we want to blog about. Enjoy!

This is a good week. It’s a week of good change, good friends and mosquito bites.  And those critters are clearly leaving us with some ideas. We have been working on our improvements to the blog, which you will start seeing sometime soon. We are both working on things that we want to be great at. Cait is deep into fashion drawing and stalking future professors at Central St Martins. She’s such a creep. Tiff is working hard on the blog re-design and sucking inspiration from cool rags like Cherry Bomb, Lucky Peach and Kinfolk. In the new design, you will still have our voices and content, but it will be prettier. More on that soon.

We hope you guys are having a great week. Here are things that are keeping us off task. Good thing we have awesome bosses.

Making the best of blizzards in Japan.

Holy cow.  SNL turned 40 and I wish so bad we could’ve been at that after party.

Lovely little piece on confidence.

Design Sponge featured a city guide for Toronto and hit all the right notes!

New goal: be in this story.

Speaking of notes, loving this DJ and cracking him open for get togethers of all sorts from now on.

Good advice.

I’m excited to make this for breakfast.

A company devoted to women drinking whiskey? Sounds amazing. Wishing we were on the guest list for this party.

And I want to have my friends over for dinner and feed them Ignacio’s meal.
