Earlier this week, I did a post about a photo series project on work spaces. I am also thrilled to present to you The Makers Project – which focuses on the occupations of others and the things that they make and pour their passion into. I used to think that I was the only person in the world that was so curious about jobs, but I guess I’m not. It’s exciting for me to learn about what people do and how this relates to us and our every day life because we will never know what that is like. We’re never going to hold all of these different jobs so having the opportunity to learn through others is pretty amazing.

After learning that Myspace will be reformed into a music platform, Friendster has decided to make its comeback by being a game-focused social networking site. If you previously had a Friendster account, you will still be able to log in – but get this – you can also log in using your Facebook account.
As I’ve already mentioned earlier this summer – and will probably mention a few more times before the end of summer – I am thrilled to be attending two summer weddings this season! Even though I have some friends that have stated they will never get married, the majority of them have already planned out their wedding in their heads. Of course, you’re not going to tell anyone though unless things go awry. As a little girl, I think I was the type of person that wanted a big churchy wedding because it was all I’d ever known. However, as I grew up and developed my tastes (and somewhat of a hipster personality) – what I want is far from that. Instead of opting for tradition, I find myself drawn towards things that are DIY.
Before the birthdays of spoiled sixteen year-olds, weddings were pretty much one of the most expensive events you could ever throw. The truth is, most of us don’t have that kind of money laying around and that was true for teachers Pam and Joe who threw the most magnificent bicycle wedding I have ever seen!
Pinatas and cupcakes…all things I LOVE.
Every once in awhile, we find ourselves getting a little distracted from our work and venturing off to other websites so I wanna know…what sites are you going to?
I’ve been spending a lot of time researching music lately and predicting artists and bands and in order to do that I have to completely branch away from my iTunes library. I first blogged about We Are Hunted back in November 2010, but it is still a site that I frequent quite often for new music. The website pulls all of the songs that have been getting buzz lately on the internet so that we can listen to it all in one place. You can also choose to listen to artists that are emerging, mainstream, remixed, or by genre. There’s something for everyone so if you’re ever looking for something new to listen to, this is your home.

Good morning! I wanted you all to wake up to a sultry song for your Thursday!
The text that accompanied this article that I read on this news today said that MySpace was sold for a mere $35 million. I’m sorry – when did $35 million become an insignificant amount of money? Okay- well when you compare it to the fact that News Corp. bought it for $580 million back in 2005 – it doesn’t look so good. Anyways, MySpace has ended it’s social networking run – as expected – but will focus more on the entertainment aspect. Justin Timberlake, (yes Justin Timberlake) now has partial ownership of the company and hopes that its new pathway will continue to support the music industry.
“There’s a need for a place where fans can go to interact with their favorite entertainers, listen to music, watch videos, share and discover cool stuff and just connect. MySpace has the potential to be that place,” Timberlake said in a statement. “Art is inspired by people and vice versa, so there’s a natural social component to entertainment.”
Is it just me…or is Justin Timberlake taking is role as Sean Parker too seriously?
Earlier this month, retailer Forever 21 tried to take down blogger Rachel Kane of WTForever 21 by hitting her with a bunch of nonsense that includes dilution and infringement on various levels. Turns out, Forever 21 didn’t really have much of a case anyways and failed to respond to Rachel meaning she’s basically off the hook. How did she celebrate her return to the blog? By writing a new post and not holding anything back of course.
You go Rachel!
For as long as I have known, music and fashion have gone hand-in-hand. The collision of the two art forms together have inspired each outlet equally and to witness this progression over the years has been astounding. Kurt Cobain’s music paved the way for the grunge period while Lady Gaga’s work today has somewhat transformed her fashion get-ups from when she first started.
It isn’t difficult to see that there is definitely some overlapping. 1 Band 1 Brand has recognized that and are dedicated to promoting both emerging bands and up-and-coming fashion designers with their new start-up. Each week, registered users will have the opportunity to learn about one band and one brand. The band’s music will be available for pay-your-own-price. More recently, I have actively been trying to find out ways to listen to tons of new artists and bands for some upcoming research that I’m doing. Unfortunately, I wasn’t getting a lot of responses from Yow Yow! but managed to find opportunities in music blogs, and sites like Turntable, We Are Hunted, and now 1 Band 1 Brand. Needless to say, I already registered.
