Storm King

Storm King is one of the best named (and most interesting) art centers I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. The Storm King Art Center is about an hour north of New York City, in the Hudson Valley. The Art Center's permanent collection of sculpture dates from 1945 to the present. It is a magical place where massive and not so massive, industrial and not so industrial (there is a wall made by British wallers) man-made objects are both in harmony and juxtaposition (my favorite!) with rolling hills, wide open fields and enchanted woodlands.

Holly Golightly

Saw Holly Golightly at Mercury Lounge last night with John, Jess and Ben. Her dry British accent is juxtaposed by her throaty singing voice and perfectly complimented by Lawyer Dave's syrupy southern drawl. I hope one day soon John and I will be rockstars and go on tour and have stage banter that is as adorable as theirs.

WATCH: Do it With Joy

John connected with a dude name Adam Humphreys (also a former treeplanter living in New York) and Adam told him about Do it With Joy, a documentary about treeplanting from 1976. I love it for the vintage Canadian accents, the timeless clothes and the colorful characters.
