Thanksgiving twenty twelve

Happy Thanksgiving Hart Beat! I hope everyone is having a great day celebrating and eating and sleeping and everything else associated with the big T-Day. I’m so excited to be home in the Berkshires for this Thanksgiving, although I do miss having my favorite brother around to celebrate the holiday with this year. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and this year I hope it’s especially good. I don’t have any pictures to share with you yet from the celebration here but check back later tonight and there will be a few surprises for you.

I was thinking the other day about how the first anniversary for Hart Beat is coming up soon in December. A year ago now the blog didn’t exist yet and I was doing my best to get through first semester with thesis and other stuff. Anyone have any ideas on how to celebrate the birthday of Hart Beat this year? I was thinking of hosting some guest posts, anyone want one?

Jade?
Alexander?
Do you remember that day 
you feel out of my window?
Sure do, you came jumping
out after me.
Well, you fell on the concrete
and nearly broke your ass
and you were bleeding all 
over the place and I rushed
you off to the hospital.
Do you remember that?
Yes, I do.
Well there’s something
I never told you about that night.
What didn’t you tell me?
While you were sitting in the backseat
smoking a cigarette you thought
was going to be your last,
I was falling deep, deeply 
in love with you
and I never told you
’til just now.

A late discovery

I know that this album came out in June but for some reason I had no idea about it until last night when I was browsing around Spotify (aka one of my favorite things to do).

The Tallest Man On Earth’s new album.
There’s No Leaving Now.
So I guess the album came out June 11th. Seeing as how much I love The Tallest Man on Earth’s older albums, even though I was traveling through June I should have known about the albums existence before now. Oh well, at least I have some new old music to enjoy while I figure out the bus system of my beloved New York until the trains are back running again. 
It’s hard for me to pick a favorite song from the album to highlight here but I think I have to share the title track from the album. What do you think Hart Beat?

New repetto line

I know it’s early for Christmas right now but, let’s be real, New York loves Christmas and so do I. Anyway, Repetto released today some really exciting news. The beautiful shoe company is coming out with a new clothing line. Only one piece has been released right now (see it below) and I am so excited to see the rest. Rodier artistic director Emilie Luc-Duc has designed the “Repetto Wardrobe” and since Nutcracker season is right around the corner, well, as an ex-ballet dancer, I am really ready to get my ballet apparel on.

A day at the MOMA

Last week my friend N. and I spend a day at the Museum of Modern Art uptown by Rockefeller Center. Very rarely do I venture farther north than 23rd street but I think visiting the MOMA definitely merits a trip. My biggest pet peeve is when people take pictures in museums. I mean, if you really love a painting then look it up in an art book when you get home. Lately though I feel like I’ve been taking pictures of everything so I thought I would break my rule this one time.
