Happy Friday Hart Beat! You have any plans for the weekend? I can’t believe it’s the end of August right now. It feels like it happened all of a sudden and I’m so sorry to see summer go. Here’s a little summer song for you sung by the multi-talented Carla Bruni.
Two posts in one night, crazy world Hart Beat. For those that don’t follow my amazing twitter, NPR’s All Songs Considered this week was pretty unbeatable. I honestly can’t wait for the new albums (Cults, The Avett Brothers, Kishi Bashi) to release.
One artist who I hadn’t heard before is now taking over my Spotify play time like it’s October of 2012 and honeyhoney came out with a new album. Anyway, just listen to this track and get excited for the new album, Hart Beat.
Hey Hart Beat. You need to watch this right now. This is one of the most amazingly heartbreakingly true poems about love that I’ve ever heard. The poem is called “OCD” and is written and preformed by Neil Hilborn. If you want more spoken word, check out this love letter from Sarah Kay.
Hi Hart Beat. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about beards, and then men who wear them. Brooklyn, and especially my neighborhood Greenpoint/Williamsburg is filled with good looking men with good looking beards. Last night on the G train I saw one of the best yet. I’ve been reading lately though that beards are on their way out. I say nay! Men of Brooklyn and beyond! Keep your beards! xo, an admirer of the rugged man.
Hey Hart Beat. How’s your night going? I’ve been riding my bike so much this summer that I’ve all but destroyed the box attached to the back of my usually trusty bike. The box is pretty old anyway since my dad built it for me back in early college. Now that I use my bike to get around Brooklyn instead of taking the G train (if you live here… you know what I’m talking about).
Anyway, I’ve been doing some research into what kind of basket I’ll get now. The most important thing is that it lasts through all seasons. But front attachment? Another box for the back? Wicker? What do you think, Hart Beat?
Hey Hart Beat. I’ve not been feeling so hot lately so I thought tonight I’d post about a style and general life icon of mine, Marion Cotillard. We all need a little inspiration sometimes, right?
Hi Hart Beat. Aren’t these photographs amazing? I saw them for the first time here and I have been thinking of them ever since. All of these photos were taken by the amazingly talented Chrissie White while traveling with a friend through the Californian mountains. Seeing these stills of the Sierra Mountains makes me want to get out to the rest of the country so badly. I love New York but, now that I’m back from Spain, I need to plan for somewhere new to go and explore. Suggestions?
