Pumpkin Carving

Thursday, October 30, 2014

A couple of weeks ago, Andres & I went pumpkin picking at Harbes Family Farm. We took those pumpkins and carved them for the first time together. So, the stencils we printed were just a little bit too large so I just drew on the patterns by hand in a smaller scale. The last time I carved a pumpkin was when I was about 10 years old, so it was fun gutting it and attempting to carve out the more intricate details with just an Exacto blade and a knife. (We didn't bother buying the carving tools.) Turned out pretty okay!

Do you carve pumpkins? If so, what did you make?

Nylon Mag's CMJ Party

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

All over NYC this past week, held many CMJ music shows and parties. I brought my friend Katie to the Nylon Magazine's CMJ Party, where a few bands were performing (Banoffee, Jamaican Queens, and MOTHXR). We mainly went to see MOTHXR (also known the band where Gossip Girl's Penn Badgely is in). It wasn't because he was in Gossip Girl, which I do admit I was a big fan of, but their music is really good.
It was my 2nd time seeing them live, and it was tempting to follow them to Pianos - the next venue they were performing at a couple of hours later, just to see them play again.


Today's song is "Easy" by MOTHXR.

Jeff Koons

Tuesday, October 28, 2014

A couple of weekends ago, it was the final days the Jeff Koons exhibit would be on display at the Whitney Museum. In honor of that, the museum opened for 36 hours straight. Since I had to work on that Sunday, Andres & I, went in early around 6:30AM to view it. It was definitely worth it!

A free audio tour came with the ticket, so it was amazing to learn more about it as we walked through the floors. The art is just incredible - especially the more well-known "balloon" and "play-doh" pieces, which are really made out of metal components. It's astounding how lifelike they look, with such attention to detail.

All About You

Today's song is "All About You" by Hilary Duff.
