Love, somewhere out there

“There’s a saying that goes something like, 
how terrible to love what can perish.”
A couple days ago I heard one of the best This America Life podcasts from their archive section. Out of all the old episodes that I’ve heard in the past couple of weeks this is one that I thought I would share with you. The number is the episode is 374 and the name of the episode is “Somewhere Out There.”

My favorite parts of the episode are the two beginning stories. The first is about a group of Harvard physicists calculating the odds of finding a girlfriend, and the second is of a misunderstanding between a young couple in love. I’ve posted the entire episode below and if you’re looking for something to do tonight, or tomorrow while riding to work I couldn’t recommend this more. As always, a love letter for you Hart Beat. 

“That is the story of struggle and pain passed through, and fought through, and overcome. And that’s a story that you don’t tell in public because no one ever asks how did you two stay together? Everyone always asks how did you two meet?”

Hello winter from Penfield

Hey Hart Beat. This weekend was absolutely beautiful in New York and I spent most of the weekend walking around Manhattan. This fall weather has me thinking about my second winter in the city and how to prepare for the low temperatures. I wanted to introduce you to Penfield, an American outerwear brand. Pefield reminds me so much of Bates and it’s Maine weather. The brand actually takes most of it’s inspiration from New England wear and I want everything from their Fall/Winter 2013 lookbook. Which look is on your wish list for this winter?

Blue Is The Warmest Color

Have you heard any of the press about this falls new movie “Blue Is The Warmest Color”? Both The Atlantic and The New Yorker wrote beautiful reviews/ analysis’s of the film. The film won this years prestigious Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival and has been getting a lot of press (both positive and negative) for its representation of its coming of-of-age epic about a lesbian relationship. I love french films and I’m so excited that it’s finally the fall movie season here in New York. What do you think, Hart Beat? Are you going to see “Blue”?

“Blue Is The Warmest Color”
P.S. For those of you wondering the song used in the trailer is Beach House’s “Take Care.” I haven’t been able to stop listening to it since watching the trailer.
I love this poster. Can I have it for my apartment?

Alt-J, let’s tessellate

Hi Hart Beat. I’ve been listening to a lot of alt-j lately and I was so happy to find this NPR Tiny Desk Concert tonight on youtube. Honestly, one of the reasons I love alt-j is the simplicity of the music and hearing them play acoustic is even better. I want them to have a concert in my apartment. Who wants to come?

P.S. The first song they sing here is one of my favorites. I’ve put “Tessellate” on the Hart Beat playlist and if you want me to add more just let me know.
Triangles are my favorite shape
Three points where two lines meet
Toe to toe, back to back, let’s go, my love; it’s very late
‘Til morning comes, let’s tessellate
