I don’t live in Portland, but after watching the first episode of Portlandia, all I want to do is pack my bags and move there! The depiction of Portland and the Indie scene in general is hysterical. From femenist book store owners, putting birds on things, to flannel shirts and bikes, it’s got it all. [...]
The wonderful comic female singing duo Garfunkel and Oates finally have a new CD out titled All Over Your Face.

This kaleidoscope music video by Australian band Teeth & Tongue is just what I need to help me get through another busy work week. So while I may be stuck inside editing papers, at least I’ll have this hypnotic video to help me pretend that I’m out dancing in the snow.

As if watching Mad Men hadn’t convinced me enough that I was born in the wrong era. I find these office photos of Bell Labs from the late 60s, and I can’t help but swoon over the clothes, vintage wallpaper, and the prototype terminals. If only going to work today looked as cool as a vintage mainframe computer.
