”Every lover on a mission shift your known position into the light
Every diamond elemental you are instrumental to the light
Every sonic evolution make your own contribution to the light”
-TV on the Radio Second Song
For the TV on the Radio fans out there, here is the movie that goes with their amazing new album, Nine Types of Light. The movie includes a music video for every song on the album, and incorporates interviews from New Yorkers on various topics, including dreams, love, fame and the future. This is how an album should be listened to. The movie is cosmic and beautiful and strange. Directed by Tunde Adebimpe.
TV on the Radio’s bassist, Gerard Smith, passed away yesterday after a fight against lung cancer. Rest in peace.

Stunning wildlife photography and video by Vincent Munier shot on a Nikon D3S. On assignment in Finland and Norway he captures the delicate beauty and raw power of the Nordic forest.

Sweet and playful spring looks from Anthropologie.
Loving, loving, loving this romantic deconstructed collection from Brooklyn label, InAisce. It puts me in mind of a swashbuckling heroine about to embark on an adventure on the high seas. Or getting ready to ride out across wind-swept moors upon the back of her spirited stallion…

This is really one of my favorite fashion editorials of all time. Probably because it reminds me of the goblin masquerade in one of my all-time favorite movies, Labyrinth. David Bowie as the Goblin King, anyone? Oh yeah.
I happen to be a sucker for desert road-trip fashion spreads and have been meaning to post this one since I saw it in the March Marie Claire US. Starring Caroline Winberg and lensed by Kalle Gustafsson.

A good friend of mine, NYC photgrapher Sari Goodfriend, sent me a link to Hengki Koentjoro’s amazing photos via Feature Shoot. Dramatic and evocative — I love his use of black and white for the shots. Simply breathtaking.
Hengki Koentjoro was born in Semarang, Central Java, Indonesia, in 1963. He is a graduate of the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California where he majored in film. He now lives in Jakarta where he specializes in fine art photography both underwater and on land.
Meet Joe. Joe D. Cat. No really, that’s his name.
Joe is one sweet dude. Somehow his eyes always seem slightly sad and melancholy to me, as though he’s recalling distant times and far-away memories…

So, I had laser eye surgery back in my freshman year of college because my eyesight was so poor that a hand less than 10 inches in front of my face was blurry. Waking up in the morning always induced a slight panic attack (I never wore contacts to bed) since I literally could not see my surroundings until my glasses were found. Contacts just didn’t work out very well for me. I finally couldn’t take it anymore and voila! One minute I was blind as a bat (pretty much literally), the next I was reading signs all the way across the street. But now, alas, my eyesight has been slipping in my right eye rather rapidly for some time now. It’s pretty bad at the moment and I think the time has come for glasses (at least to wear during movies and while reading). I’ve actually been really inspired by all the super cute frames that seem to be cropping up all over fashion campaigns and editorials lately. Which ones do you all like??
