I am a huge fan of You Tube, now that just about everyone has a video camera these days, more and more interesting and visually pleasing videos are really popping up everywhere!  Thanks to the lovely Laura, I was introduced to Bucovina by Ian Oliver & Shantel.  If you are into jump rope, and Im not talking just plain jumping, then you must watch!  I’ll admit, almost every time I have come across those jump rope competitions, I stop and watch, there is just something so interesting and rhythmic!  Anyway, saw this and made me want to break out my rope!  And the song is pretty cool too!

And one more You Tube moment for the day, have you heard of Bon Iver?  A few months ago, the fiance downloaded what seems like hundreds of songs and For Emma was one of the lucky ones to make the download cut.  The song is lovely, and rikshaw design found a nice and funny a cappella version.  Im a sucker for anything a cappella.  And if you are anything like me, I always like to listen to how close the original version is to an a cappella version, and they are pretty close!

I just love looking to celebrities for great fashion influences, and if I could pull off Zooey Deschanel’s look, I would in a heartbeat.  My fiance (who is a huge Deschanel fan) sticks to his claim that I can, but I still beg to differ!  Anyway, I was in need of some inspiration and away I went to see what she was up to, and I can’t wait to see 500 Days of Summer!

While I was in the middle of writing this, “Why don’t you let me stay here?” by She and Him came on the itunes… a sign that I shouldn’t forget her awesome clothes in the video!  Hooray for the vintage look!

And one more thing, have you seen her new Cotton commercial?  Its too cute, and if you are really into her style, check out Cotton’s stylebook for interviews with Zooey.

Music to dine to

While listening to my cleaning playlist… I told you I like lists… one of my new favorite songs came on, and now with my newly remodeled front patio, I can’t stop picturing me and the fiance finishing up this summer sitting under the tree, having dinner at a newly purchased outdoor table and listening to great tunes.  I am so looking forward to future dinner parties now that we have our own yard in Venice!  Those are hard to come by in the apartment world.  Anyway, I can’t get enough of Panic Ensemble’s Spring in you Heart from Tel Aviv Israel.  I can’t understand a word they say while talking, but they sing in English and I just can’t get enough and just had to share.  So soothing and unique!  If you are a fan, be sure to check out their myspace page for more songs and videos.
