double amazingness: my favorite store in san francisco

everything about this store screams brilliance and the next time i return to san francisco i'm definitely going directly to citizen chain without fail. check their blog HERE


recommended viewing: "glass: a portrait of philip in twelve parts"

watching this fascinating documentary on pianist philip glass directed by adelaide-hero scott hicks make me sad that i didn't invest in one those amazing chuck close-designed artist series t-shirts for gap last season depicting glass himself (see my friend max padilla had the good sense to do so).

barkley l. hendricks

thanks to the lovely jennifer krasinski i discovered this truly great american artist's work this week and not surprisingly, this 64 year old is one of the leading pioneers of black portraiture. his life-sized oil paintings are the stuff that magic is made of. brilliant and inspiring.
