But my absolute favorite had to be the savory deliciousness being sampled by Cast Iron Gourmet. Two words for you: Bacon Chutney. Served up with pimento cheese, it was heaven on a cracker. I was devastated that they had run out before I had the chance to snap some up. But if you're in LA on Saturday, ease yourself into 2011 by popping by the Eagle Rock Brewery and picking up some bacon goodness.
Darren Aronosky's Black Swan was amazing as much as it terrified and unnerved me. I had a tough time looking in mirrors the night after I watched it. The British Design Studio LaBoca created four alternate key art looks inspired by Polish and Czech posters from the 60's and 70's. Aren't they striking? The first one is very A Clockwork Orange to me. See them all here.
I have just been introduced to the warm soul style that is Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings. Their new album was a Christmas gift from my cousin Steve who's been helping cultivate my musical taste since introducing me to REM's Out of Time in 4th grade. I love it for a swinging New Year's Eve party.
Kate Spade is the master of creating beautiful and stylish designs with just the right touch of whimsy. So I couldn't help snapping these up to use as my holiday cards this year. The perfect sentiment for the season.
