happy friday everyone!  just had to jump in here before i let marcus loose on you all and say that i can’t wait until next week!  new products to show you, new styling shots and, if i’m lucky, my desk will be painted and ready to be shown off (do you like my not so subtle hint to the hubby!)  have a wonderful weekend!

raconteurs consolers of the lonely

hubby here! (aka marcus)

every now and then there comes an album (yes, i said album.  it doesn’t have to mean vinyl!) that is pure magic.  its that album that you can listen to daily and not ever get sick of it.  your desert island album.  every time you listen to it, you hear new layers to the music.  or maybe you just found ten bucks in your pocket while you were listening to it.  whatever the reason, this album means something to you.  this for me (at least this decade) is consolers of the lonely by the raconteurs.

jack white and brendan benson.  wow.  i respect these two dudes so much musically.  brendan’s my pop guy.  jack’s always pushing the envelope.  put these two (and two other guys) together and you get the best band in ten years.  i always think the true test of a band is its ‘live’ factor… if they suck live, they suck.  period.  this video of the raconteurs’ song ‘old enough’  featuring ricky skaggs and ashley munroe is gold + genius, or to mash it up,  genius.  hehe.  check this out and haters beware…theres a bit o’ bluegrass to this version.

music this well played, orchestrated, produced, written, and presented is just so inspiring, which is really the whole reason for music, to me anyway.  what music/songs/albums are on your desert island list?  ttfn.  the hubby has spoken!

(piper here…does anyone know what the heck “ttfn” means??  he’s such a gamer!)

    Easy. I’d take Bon Iver’s album “For Emma, Forever Ago” with me. not JUST because it’s about me ;) but because it’s brilliant!

    The Scoop

    i'm an aspiring new boutique owner, wannabe interior designer and indie design devotee. i have a love (ok, obsession) for discovering new things and sharing them with others. here is where I get to share my "finds", talk about my plans to escape the dreaded "day job" and basically go nuts over cool design. so if you're looking for inspiration for you + your home (along with a healthy dose of humor) then one sydney road is your place!
