Just warning you now, this is an addictive site. But I love it, sometimes after a long day of work I'll relax and do some pinning. It helps keep me organized. I used to have folders on my desktop of things I've found on the interent that I like, now I just pin them all. I also like that it's just my friends pins that I see, not the dumb stuff people put on the interent (though sometimes I click on everything out of curiosity, and I always find the most ridiculous things).
Here's my pinterest if you want to take a look, you should join!
When we work, Seth and I like to listen to music. We've been listening to Pandora (I like the Beach House and Voxtroxt) but we get a little sick of it. Seth found this site, Turntable, where you go into different rooms (they are all labeled, everything form Hip Hop to acoustic indie) and if your lucky you can dj and play your own music, or just listen to what other people play. Seth and I both have enough points that we have bear suits now, and it's awesome. One Friday night we realized we were complete nerds, we were both dj'ing in the same room, trying to rack up points, instead of going out.
I bought this book (here) and I am obsessed. It's a bunch of artists that came together for a studio in LA called Studio 1988 and they each created art work for favorite cult movies. A lot of my favorite movies are featured including The Shining, The Big Lebowski, Pulp Fiction, Harold & Maude, Night of the Living Dead, and Rushmore.
I discovered Lush since living in Seattle, there's a shop downtown close to Pike Place. MIchelle and I walked in once and I didn't expect to buy anything, I'm not picky about my shampoo or body wash (unlike my sister who is a product fiend). But as soon as I smelled the shampoo bars and bath bombs I was in. I now use their lotion, shampoo, soap, perfume...and occasionally I'll spend the money on a Mrs. Whippy bath bomb. Everything smells so good there.
There are only 2 blogs I read consistently, and I read them everyday (another way to unwind after a long day of work). Tom & Lorenzo are a fabulous gay couple who blog about fashion and tv shows mostly. They do amazing recaps on Mad Men episodes. They are so funny and down to earth (a trait that's a must for me if I"m going to read your blog).
Topless Robot is a nerd news blog, and I'm not really a nerd, I just have some nerdy traits (especially when it comes to computer and video games, even then I don't claim to know enough about anything to consider myself a real nerd). But Rob, who writes it, is hilarious. I'm not always interested in the posts but the daily list are always awesome, here's one of my favorites.
Since my favorite tv shows aren't on anymore, including the office, parks and rec, and mad men, True Blood has really filled the void. Okay, that and Louie, which is an amazing show. True Blood is awesome, its just so ridiculous I love it. My all time favorite series Six Feet Under was done byt he same dude, Alan Ball. This season is the best, and it's great because Seth watches it with me (he resisted at first, but he loves it now).
