Highlights of the Week

To See:

Whilst randomly scrolling through the interwebs I found this great website by illustrator Steve Morrison. Check it out. Really cool stuff.

To Eat:

I also had the chance to find pictures of the most amazing chocolates ever. They're in an Italian Deli in Salt Lake City called Tony Caputo's and are from Chocolatier Blue, based in California.

Are these not incredible? Boasting such simple yet unique flavors such as Sage Honey and Grapefruit Rosemary, these chocolates are as delicious as they are beautiful. Though they are a little pricy, (2 dollars per delectable piece) they are worth the cost if you want to surprise a special someone with something a little more appealing than a bag of Hersey's.

To Hear:

Firstly, if you have not heard of the Icelandic band Sigur Ros, you need to remedy the situation. My music find for the week is the artist Jonsi, lead singer for the band Sigur Ros. He has recently come out with a new album that is the most joyful, cathartic, reflective and everything else happy in the world album that I have ever heard. Go look him up!

To Read:

This book is an old one that I've read over and over again. I am putting it down this week because I read it again before I let my friend Ashley borrow it. As for everyone else who I didn't lend it to: READ THIS BOOK! Its the best book I have ever read and each time I read it I fall in love with it all over again.

Great Blog!
Also, illustrator Steve Morrison is Davey Morrison's brother! Small world!

Whoa! I looked at this because you linked it on Facebook, and there is a picture from my brother. That was a weird and cool thing. He is an amazing artist.

I need to check out that album.

Oh that's your brother Davey? That's really cool. He's a great artist and this is my favorite sketch of his.

i pretty much adore sigur ros, so I think that I just might look Jonsi up.
As for Memoirs Of Geisha - the book`s pretty addicting. I`ve read it (as far, as I can remember) 7 or 8 times probably.
And even after these 7 or 8 times or re-reading it, I don`t find it boring.
