Can we talk about how I am obsessed with these shoes? They are Gucci. (The previous link is an affiliate link, which means I receive a small commission if you make a purchase using this link.)

The AV Club has launched a series called “Soundtracks of Our Lives” and did a full examination of the soundtrack to The Crow, from 1994. I wish I had more pictures from around that time, when I was totally getting out of “grunge” music and more into way darker stuff, particularly Nine Inch Nails, introduced to me by my friend Tiffany. The Crow soundtrack had a Nine Inch Nails song on it, and that was enough to pull me in, but that soundtrack became something I could listen to all the way through. When I met my husband Will – I found out that he too loved the soundtrack, and even had the CD of the film’s score, an elusive piece of music to find even when the movie was so popular. That, along with the fact that he had more Nine Inch Nails halos than I did, made him immediately super cool in my eyes. Back to topic – The Crow soundtrack, 22 years later, still evokes a lot of emotion for me, and a lot of memories of laying on my bed or the floor, listening to it all the way through. I think I still have an ENORMOUS poster of Brandon Lee as Eric Draven somewhere in my storage unit. It was a formative movie and soundtrack, and I loved reading this piece about it.

I searched online the other day for Cahill’s Whiskey Cheddar Cheese. I used to buy this at Whole Foods and then they stopped stocking it. I have now found it online, at, which is barking right up my tree.

Shauna (Nubby Twiglet) wrote about creating a personalized workspace. I have a tiny desk in our apartment, so at the office, I’ve done quite a bit of personalization. I will put my office together a bit more and post about it soon.

I’m really excited for the Olympics, and gymnastics in particular. Here’s a great video about Aly Raisman’s spectacular floor exercise.

A wonderful human put all of season 6 of The Grest British Bake-Off on YouTube, including the Masterclass episodes that I had never seen!

An artist redrew their childhood art, and it is magical. It is like seeing the intention of the original piece.

Sunday Link Party!

by Jamie Sanford on July 12, 2010

Week 9!

Photo of the week.

Another boat mast.

On the dock in Provincetown, MA.

These photos of outdoor spaces in Los Angeles make me want to move to California immediately. (Apartment Therapy)

I’ve been looking at lots of food blogs lately, so I love these tips on great food photography from The Daily Olive.

In addition to food blogs, I’ve been reading bridal blogs (all goes with the new gig) and I love Bowie Bride because she rocks. She’s getting married soon, I can’t wait for wedding pictures, and her bachelorette adventure in Vegas looked amazing.

I bought the Eclipse soundtrack when it came out, because the music supervisor for the Twilight movies is brilliant. It’s a great collection, and I’m currently in love with this song called “Let’s Get Lost” by Beck and Bat for Lashes.

Music from The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

by Jamie Sanford on June 29, 2010

Yes, another Twilight post. Eclipse comes out tonight!

One of my favorite things about the Twilight films have been their soundtracks. In addition to the traditional “mix tape” that a soundtrack tends to be, Summit Entertainment has also released the scores from all of the films as well.

I am recommending both. I can give a thumbs up on the soundtrack, as it has been out for a few weeks and I’m playing it a lot. It has artists such as Muse, Sia, Florence + The Machine, The Black Keys, and more. I haven’t heard the score yet, but it comes out today and come on, it’s Howard Shore, who always writes a great score. I don’t doubt that this will be spectacular.

Both CDs are available for $12.99 on Amazon (click on the image for the link to the Amazon pages). Buy them for your favorite Twilight fan today!
