an appointment that ended well

Apple Store Kenwood

Laptop was too grumpy to start up.
Folks at the Apple store fixed it with a smile.
(Actually, they used a tiny screwdriver and some know-how.)

capiz light

Though not the light I had my eye on, I think the proportions of this capiz fixture from West Elm suits our space nicely.

I secretly picked it up yesterday and Kyle came over to make it happen on the sly while Dan was at a performance.

It’s always a gamble making decisions like these alone, but we’d been looking long enough to know what we wanted.
When Dan came home, he apparently saw the excited expression on my face before he turned the corner and
caught his first glimpse. Verdict? A big enthusiastic yes. (Thanks Kyle and helpers)

Kim Deal and Kelley Deal

I didn’t actually take this photo, a kind stranger with a better view did the honors as I was pinned in a corner.
She might have been with the prevalent rollergirl contingency, but I’m not entirely sure.
Either way, I love what she captured.
It was an excellent set, my mom finally got to see the Deals perform, snagged some new music, and I ate at Melt for dinner.
All sorts of win that evening.

Fate to Fatal

Kim Deal, Kelley Deal

Kim and Kelley take a break after printing up 1000 limited edition “Fate to Fatal” EPs.
I’m going down to Shake It Records tonight (8pm) to see them play some music in commemoration
of the release and Record Store Day.

Things have been so pedal-to-the-metal that I haven’t really taken the time to talk about this record.
The cover is the first one I’ve ever designed proper, and it’s a helluva an joy to work with The Breeders.

Vaughn Oliver’s work with them is one of the biggest reasons I do what I do these days.

The fact I love their music? Gravy. The best gravy ever.

Total honor.

If you’re curious how to get the EP on vinyl, it is out there at independent shops today.
As for tomorrow, stay tuned. I’ll find out the details and post more information, hopefully with some
photos from this evening.

The starter cheese fondue and closing chocolate fondue are where its at.
All that meat and stuff in-between just made me nervous.
