This commercial is one of my favorite things in the whole wide world to watch. My obsession began on a rainy day when someone special made me watch an hour of behind the scenes footage because I couldn't quite wrap my head around this actually happening. In fact, there were several Sony Bravia commercials that were just as impressive and equally as hard to believe. To date, this one remains my favorite and, as if the beauty in the colors alone weren't enough, they had to put one of the best Jose Gonzalez songs in the background. Happy Friday everyone!
I'm going through Girls withdrawals. I'm two episodes behind, which is so much time that they all may have grown up, matured and found men who deserved them by now.
Oh god, wouldn't that be such a boring show..
These Girls paper dolls reconnected me once again to the brilliant series and makes me long for the time when I could watch uncomfortable parent sex from the comfort of my own home. Soon enough, my friends. Soon enough.
It's been almost a month since my last decent post so I figured I'd start with something simple and beautiful as a way to welcome everyone back...
It's amazing how something that is already so unique and beautiful can become even more of a work of art with just a small adjustment. Myoung Ho Lee's Artwork is a stunning tribute to nature and shape and proves that sometimes we just don't notice the intricacies of life that surround us daily.
