hey guys! man, i’ve hit the ground running since returning from holiday. it feels great, and surprisingly good to be busy after 3 weeks of basically just lying around and eating. i’ve been taking photos of some pretty rad local places for something i’m working on, and rediscovering Cape Town as a veritable tourist. FYI: people treat you really nicely when you have a camera and they think you’re from out of town. or maybe that’s just south africans? well, you guys should come visit. it’s beautiful here.
onto those distractions.
new song from Sleater Kinney featuring some of their famous friends. you can listen to the entire album here.
of course Sufjan Stevens would release a trailer for his new album. it’s releasing 31 March. i’m excited!!

i wanted to address a comment that was left on yesterday’s post asking whether it was sponsored – and the answer is: no, not ever. i don’t do sponsored posts. everything you see here is something i have discovered, or have had submitted to me, and that i personally like and want to share with you. i have nothing against sponsored posts! they can be done amazingly well and i have personal blogging heroes who ace them. but right now they’re just not for me. that said, if i ever did one i would always let you know.
