Ryan made a delicious steak, baked potato and steamed broccoli dinner on Monday night. I joke that he only knows how to make four different meals, but to his credit, he can make those really well. We accompanied the meal with this bottle of wine and it too was really good. From the bottle: “this Napa Valley Cabarnet Sauvignon offers ripe fruit flavors of raspberries, black currants and succulent blackberries supported by medium tannins and a rich, smooth finish.”

I’m no wine connoisseur so that is the official description for you.

I would say it was a beautiful red-purple out of the bottle, and in your mouth.

This too shall pass / one-take video

You’re about to see this everywhere. So simply amazing. I’ve watched it three times in a row. You should too.

What others are saying:

This video, directed by James Frost, is flat-out incredible. OK Go spent several months with Synn Labs building a giant Rube Goldberg machine in a warehouse to create a new one-take video for the song This Too Shall Pass. I’m not sure how they will ever top this one, but that’s what I thought three videos ago.


For its latest video, released on YouTube Monday night, pop band OK Go recruited a gang of very talented engineers to build a huge, elaborate Rube Goldberg machine whose action perfectly meshes with the band’s song, “This Too Shall Pass,” from the band’s new album, Of the Blue Color of the Sky.

Self-Promotional Calendar, c. 1970


Love the numbers on this 1970 self-promotional calendar designed by Terzostudio (Giorgio Tramontini) and how the bleed or smear into the next. Creates a sense of motion and time lapsing… wish it were for sale today!

Isn’t this the best map ever? The lines for the streets have been taken out leaving only the typography of the streets (click on it to see larger version).
