Jamie Lidell

Well, he's not female, but I don't want to limit myself to strictly posts about female singer/songwriters etc.
Fans of Feist or Jose Gonzalez will generally already know about this dude, since he collaborates with both of them a lot. I love this song.

and I LOVE LOVE LOVE this video!

And this one is pretty sweet as well.
I haven't been posting much lately. I gave up black tea for Lent, but I have also decided to be far less technological (tv, internet etc. etc.) in my daily routine.
But check it out: this, like everything else these days, makes me want to move to a bigger city.

Lent and photo blogs


I'm feeling the days getting longer, which is AWESOME, cause mornings are longer and brighter :)
Also, I am in need of a new project. Especially since I am giving up black tea for Lent, and I will need to distract myself, because I am convinced that I have a serious addiction. I might be getting really crazy here, but it's possible I will stop loving mornings so much with only green or herbal teas as my options. We shall see.

In other news, here are two cool (New York-related) photo blogs that I check about every second day.

For lovers of fashion and New York lifestyles, who haven't already heard about him, this is The Sartorialist. I love this one because he often posts the street, corner and/or area where each picture was taken. It really gives you a sense of the personalities of New York's neighborhoods (I'd love to find a similar blog about Brooklyn):

This one is "A Year in Pictures." It's really just about great photography and other related items:

Happy Shrove Tuesday! Eat some pancakes and bacon.

Unwitting/disguised prayers

Are everywhere, really.
Exhibit A:
Breathe Me
(Sia)

Help, I have done it again
I have been here many times before
Hurt myself again today
And, the worst part is there's no-one else to blame

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small
I'm needy
Warm me up
And breathe me

Ouch I have lost myself again
Lost myself and I am nowhere to be found,
Yeah I think that I might break
I've lost myself again and I feel unsafe

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small
I'm needy
Warm me up
And breathe me

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small
I'm needy
Warm me up
And breathe me video

I found out yesterday that my favourite thrift store is closing in two weeks. I'm a little bummed, but I got a bunch of sweet stuff (esp. retro sewing patterns) for ridiculously cheap prices. That eases the sting a little.
