If you’re looking for something to watch this weekend the Australian mini-series Upright is a fearless, hilarious, and sweet road trip across the Nullarbor with a down on his luck musician, a runaway, and a piano. I’m embarrassed to say it took me until the third episode to realize the title was about the piano. Available here.


I’m on a quest to try find the best one pot pasta dishes. Why can’t all recipes be this cute? Recipe link here


I would spend dusk in this glowing treehouse every day.

Success! You're on the list.

Lately, I’ve been thinking of my favorite page in The Gashlycrumb Tinies.

Edward Gorey’s The Doubtful Guest, and Dr. Seuss’s similar tale of a puzzling and disruptive visitor, The Cat in the Hat, seem like a timely read these days.

While scrolling through my saved articles I found this article from The Atlantic I’d saved about a biography of Edward Gorey, Mark Dery’s Born to Be Posthumous: The Eccentric Life and Mysterious Genius of Edward Gorey.

The article claims that Wes Anderson, Lemony Snickets, and even Morrissey have Gorey to thank for their sweet, dark, and humorous language and imagery.

This would explain my affection for all of the above.

You can buy this book on Amazon or why not order online from your local, or not so local independent book store? Like Powell’s or Book People

P.S. Check out some Wes Anderson color palettes and dive into some seriously cool tunes.
