what nixon time teller p watch (white)
why i'm not a watch person, but i can't help but like the clean silhouette of the time teller p. the all-white watch appeals to my sense of luxury. i've always wanted an all-white watch, but chanel was too expensive and crooks & castles too exclusive. i've been missing out until nixon swooped in and released this budget-friendly time piece.
what grizzly bear | veckatimest
why one of the most critically acclaimed albums of 2009, veckatimest is a melancholy mix of indie rock and psychedelic folk. for me, grizzly bear sits somewhere between the frenetically paced tv on the radio and the slow musings of fleet foxes. it's a strong album from back to front, but there are a few tracks that i'll highlight in a future post.
what honey bunches of oats w/ almonds
why straight up, this is fucking good cereal.
where grocery store
what "hopkins student kills man with samurai sword"
why john pontolillo is a badass. i know, death isn't a joke, but john went himura kenshin on a would-be robber. he probably came out of the shadows like saito. you know what, i'm not a nerd. kenshin was the only anime series i watched in full and he was super gully. i bet that john was a fan as well.
where e. university parkway, baltimore aka edo, seat of the tokugawa shogunate or read the baltimore sun
what duffel: visual trip planner
why i've been using duffel since it's been in its beta stages. for a frequent traveler like me, it's an irreplaceable resource. i'm not spontaneous, so i like to plan extensively. with duffel, you can plan a trip to basically any city because it utilizes google maps to pin your locations. basically, you have a web-based tack board and map at your disposal. you can map out activities, restaurants, bars, hotels, shops, and even flight paths. i highly suggest.
