we have some new, local jewels in our mix guys. AND they just both happen to be a couple of hot moms who are making them. lovely beaded arm cuffs by connie loo and deliciously, playful body jooree and earrings by telepathe. who btw will be doing an in-store tomorrow to show us how to wear the leg-connected-to-the-arm one. OW! (in my funk voice)

we've been love love loving our friend liz' s art lately. she sits quietly downstairs in her studio most days, all bundled up in her black hoodie, drawing these crazy, strobe patterns while surrounded by these totally 80's style pink drapes. she has a dog named gypsy and she likes to eat chips. duh. you can catch her art and video opening on march 4th at the partisan gallery in san francisco. she might do a performance as well. cross yr fingers oxoxo

wood is down, things are being done, everything is chill except our upstairs neighbors who for some reason hate the sound of sawing after midnight. jeeez what's their f'ing problem? :) we'll just go ahead and mark that down as a JK. the tests of the stains looked cool and dark but we ended up going with a lighter, trippier, evaporation vibe. you'll see. it's like the water rushing in on the black sands of your personal beach of your personal ocean where kittens and unicorns and buddha and krishna and even eric the sheriff live.

ohhh something, a smell or a memory just triggered the feeling of summer. the lackadaisical feeling of warm breezes and road trip radio sing-a-longs. i just got this cd in the mail from autumn records. something about her voice and guitar...beautiful.

On a side note- NONA,the name on this label--upon seeing it I had the feeling one might have opening a music box with the loveliest of songs playing...it could be the font-or maybe the original owner-who knows...
