I want to go to London to see the exhibit Modernism: Designing A New World.
edit: and buy shoes at this store called Swear.
“Paradise Now,” a very engaging article on the Modernist movement. For any fellow Apartment Therapy fans, this is how we got that chair.
Not all of these songs/albums came out in 2005, but I don’t claim to be ahead of the curve when it comes to popular music.
- BjÃ¶rk: MedÃºlla
- Brazilian Girls: Brazilian Girls – a birthday gift from a friend. Cool irreverent fun.
- The Delays: Faded Seaside Glamour – this was a lifesaver last February when Summer seemed years away.
- The Ditty Bops: The Ditty Bops – They showed up at CBGB’s 212 Lounge to play after a friend’s band and I was completely charmed.
- Elliot Smith: From A Basement On The Hill
- Handsome Boy Modeling School: White People
- Beck: Midnite Vultures
- “Wishing on a Star” – original recording by Rose Royce & covered by Luka Bloom
- “Give Me Your Love” by Curtis Mayfield from the Superfly soundtrack. The whole soundtrack is excellent, but this is the track I’m most taken with.
- “Wichita Lineman” by Glen Campbell. This song is included on a couple of Top XXX Song lists not to mention covered many times, but I didn’t ever take note of it until going to see a comedy troup from Great Britain who used it in a sketch.
One of my resolutions for 2006 is to blog about music throughout the year instead waiting to the end.

An interview with the architect Renzo Piano. My favorite quotes:
“Cities are a place of tolerance, by definition, where difference must merge.”
“In some way, people believe that if you are permeable, if you are a good listener, you don’t have the quality of somebody with a firm attitude. But this is not true.”
I like this man.
