Artist of the Week: Lori Earley

Lori Earley is a painter from New York City.  She paints these incredibly ethereal portraits in a style that distorts realism, yet are done so well that you almost believe there is someone out there who looks like that.  I really love her sense of light in these paintings and also her choice of color palettes in each work.  Love.

Transform Ya

Ok, Chris Brown is hot.  He is an amazing dancer and has a great voice too.  I can’t get enough of this video.  In this song Lil’ Wayne is doing what he does best, cameo vocals.  Whoever thought to let this guy record his own music is an idiot, not to mention his rock album.  But when he throws some lines into other people’s music, it works.  Thanks Lil’ Wayne for your weird annoying voice that I love in small doses.  And thank you Chris Brown for being so attractive that it makes me almost forget about what you did to Rihanna.

and this one is to illustrate the fact that he can actually sing.  And Cassie’s hair in this video is amazing.

Trooper Hat

I bought this black trooper hat on amazon and now I want to wear it everyday…do you think people will think I’m ridiculous? Or just really cold?

My friend Jonah showed me this band called Pomplamoose a little while ago and I just can’t get enough.  Her voice is awesome.  I love her and them.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Christmas at the Yuma House

This is what I stay up late at night to do…and then complain about all the time I don’t have to do the important stuff I need to get done.

I like my roommates.
