No New Music News

Ok so I was unfortunately unable to go to the Justin Nozuka, Missy Higgins, Lenka concert at Mercy Lounge this past Tuesday, but I included a few links so you will know exactly where my mind was for this week's art piece.




The new post pic is Gustav Klimt's the Kiss. I don't think I have discussed it before, but I believe listening to the three artists listed exhibits feeling evoked by this painting.

So for my new profile picture, I chose something that I just liked because of the colors. Its amazing what color can do to a seemingly ordinary object. I am not sure who painted it, but it is stunning!

Cafe Coco for Dummies

Ok so this past VDay eve, my friends and I went to a show at Cafe Coco, a Local coffee shop known for open mics and their pasta dishes. Anyways a friend of ours James Fate aka Nate from Starbucks was playing with his full band. Along with Fate, was a singer/ songwriter, Molly Jewell. This Molly Jewell was fantastic! She had one song in particular about a crush she had on her doctor. She included both the violin, viola, and guitar in her set. Her songs were different than the typical female pianist/ singer but at the same time classic. There was an opening band as well, Abbydoyoudance, but once I realized I had the same pants as the male vocalist, I lost interest. the whole night was fantastic, and we ended with a movie on my friend's couch, Garden State. Now, if you haven't seen this movie, I suggest you remedy that immediately. Garden State is without a doubt one of my alltime favorites. The soundtrack got me to thinking, want to see some artwork inspired by the Garden State Sondtrack? Here you go, enjoy! Don't forget to check out Garden State! and

grammy night!

I realize it has been a while since I have posted, so I figured what night would be better than grammy night? GO Coldplay!! Any who, I am watching the Grammys as I post this, and came across a new album from a friend of mine on facebook. First of all, yes I have and regularly use facebook; its a passioin of mine. this photograph is gorgeous! I plan on using it as the inspiration for a painting piece in the near future. This would be a great background for Coldplay's lost video right? I know I think so. Enjoy!
