My Favorite Things

Post it Note Stories has teamed up with my beloved Chicago Public Radio and animated a review from Sound Opinions. I've had the recent revelation that I'll never have good or cool taste in music, so I can admit I get about 1 in 10 references they make in this review. I don't even know the band they're reviewing, but I still can't resist the awesome:

I give up!

This is the earliest known painting by Michelangelo. It's called the Torment of St. Anthony and he painted it when he was THIRTEEN YEARS OLD!

Just another reason to feel like I'll never accomplish anything. Happy Thursday!

Oh, heeeey...

It's been a huge long time. I have been contributing to another "project" (which makes me sound like a pretentious a-hole. totally intentional) and just haven't made the time.

That being said, I recieved an amazing haiku from a friend about Rick Bayless that just needed to be shared with the three of you:

Rick Bayless, a haiku:
petite nerdy man
likes to wear pink and purple
i can support that
I can also support that he's a fellow anthropology nerd. Even the fact that he wears chokers doesn't phase me!
