It's that time of year where many of us get a little sniffly and sneezy with allergies. I've heard that if you have a teaspoon of honey that is local to your area everyday, your friendly neighborhood bees will help you acclimate to the pollen. Figured it's worth a try. To the farmers market I go!

"Now that I've met you, would you object to never seeing each other again?" Paul Thomas Anderson heard that lyric in Aimee Mann's song Deathly and turned it into a line of dialogue. That line in turn inspired the whole script of this wonderfully complex movie. I just rewatched last night. Amazing.

The super talented Sara writes The Blow Off, a funny irreverent collection of relationship endings both big and small. Inspired by the site, I put together a mix tape. In case of blow off, press play.

PS I'm trying this great new site called Grooveshark to make my mixes now so that you can actually listen. Hope you like!

Been spending these last few days in NYC doing a shoot for work and having a lovely time in the city. Don't you love this photo?
PS When he wasn't taking pictures, that Paul McCartney sure did write some good tunes. And playing Beatles Rock Band is a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

Acoustic cover of The Pixies. Black Francis has said this song is about earthquakes; I like to think about that moment of quiet stillness that comes before things really shake up.

I've been working on a series of covers over the last few months and I'm so happy to share "Fearless". I cannot thank Margaret enough for being the most incredible teacher and friend for the last six years. Without the encouragement of she and Alan, I never would have gotten this far. Sometimes you just have to kick the cat. xo
