Crush: A funny real life love story

Hi Hart Beat. Happy Friday! My best friend and college roommate C. just sent me the most adorable video. “Crush” is featured on The Atlantic website right now and tells the true life story of a couple meeting and falling in love. You have to watch it.

In this short film director Bianca Giaever and fashion designer Rachel Antonoff take on the subject of love. We meet Antonoff’s parents—well actually, we meet Antonoff’s parents as they meet and fall for each other in 1972. Done in a similar style as Giaever’s initial viral blockbuster, The Scared Is Scared, the film uses the voices of Rick and Shira (Antonoff’s parents) as they recall, and sometimes forget, exactly how their relationship blossomed. The film, which proves to be a family affair, stars Jack Antonoff (playing his father) opposite actress Gillian Jacobs of the television show Community. The cast also includes actresses Mae Whitman and Jenny Slate.

You know I can’t let you slide through my hands

Hi. How was your weekend, Hart Beat? I’ve been practicing my guitar a lot lately, and tonight is no exception. I’m so happy to be in my apartment tonight looking out over the east river at Manhattan. Rough life. Anyway, I wanted to share one of my favorite songs to play with you tonight.

“Wild Horses” by The Rolling Stones
Childhood living is easy to do
The things you wanted I bought them for you
Graceless lady
You know who I am
You know I can’t let you slide through my hands

I watched you suffer a dull aching pain
Now you’ve decided to show me the same
No sweeping exits or off stage lines
Could make me feel bitter or treat you unkind

I know I’ve dreamed you a sin and a lie
I have my freedom but I don’t have much time
Faith has been broken tears must be cried
Let’s do some living after we die

Wild horses, couldn’t drag me away
Wild horses, we’ll ride them someday

Wes Anderson date

The other day was my roommate G.’s birthday and to celebrate, the two of us went to this amazing event at a place close by to our apartment. Videology on South 1st in Williamsburg is this super cool bar/video rental place/screening room. They have all these events where they project movies (usually cult favorites) in their back room for free and let everyone who shows up drink and watch.

This past Tuesday was Wes Anderson Bingo night and so G. and I happily braved the cold to watch “Moonrise Kingdom.” I had seen this movie when I was visiting Madrid over the summer, and even though it was really fun to see dubbed in Spanish sitting next to a group of Señoras, Bill Murray, Francis McDormand and the rest of the crew really aren’t that funny without their original voices. This time it was great to see it in english, and in Brooklyn.

“We’re in love. We just want to be together.
What’s wrong with that?”

An office romance

It snowed in the Berkshires! And today is the recreation of this famous painting in Stockbridge. I miss home. Today though I’m just spending some good old time cleaning our apartment. Fun times in Brooklyn. Anyway, for now I want to talk about a little office romance that has pulling on my heartstrings.

Any of you Hart Beat readers out there “The Office” fans? And no, I’m not talking about the British version which I know I need to see. I’m talking about ye old American version. I’ve been occupying myself on these cold New York nights by living vicariously through the romance of the sweetest couple of all time, Pam and Jim.
The two of them together makes me so happy. (Cuter than this couple here I think. Maybe not though, up for debate.) Honestly, the best part about watching the office is watching what Jim says about Pam. He loves her so much! What about you Hart Beat, are you slash have you ever been a fan of the office?
