even though temperature wise spring is still not here, the sun has been shining almost every day. And what better way to celebrate sunshine than with some good music!
My father gave me these records a few years ago (he only listens to CD’s now). They are all original, meaning that he bought them when they came out, back in the late sixties. A week after I took them home, a fire broke out in our house. Luckily, most records survived from the flames. Besides listening to them, I also like to look at them, because of the great graphic designs.
I discovered this great tumblr today through stilinberlin.de that I wanted to share here. Meet Ali. Ali lives in Berlin and is said to own over 80 different suits. He works at a tailor and is snapped in his great outfits by a girl who works at a coffee shop on route to this work.

it has been quiet here for too long due to this annoying flue that I can’t seem to get rid of. On the upside, being stuck at home gave me plenty of time to finally watch all those movies and documentaries that I had saved for a lazy sunday. Among them, this documentary on Hermes that gives insight into how all those beautiful leather goods are made: by hand and with the utmost care and knowledge. Here is craftsmanship for you.
bookshelf porn. Quite possible one of the best blogs around. Needs no further explanations, simply go there, enjoy what you see for a while, turn of your computer and finally start reading that book that has always been there but has never been opened.
I was looking for tips on how to do a DIY repair on the hole in my favorite pair of jeans, when I found this nice tutorial by Self Edge in New York. Love the machine he is working with (a original Singer Darning machine from the 1950s) that makes it possible to create new fabric with thread, instead of fixing the hole with a patch.
food trucks are common in the USA but not so much here in Europe. A shame, in my opinion. I would love to be surprised on the street by beautiful mobile restaurants like the one Del Popolo has built. It is made of an old container that has been placed on a truck and it has its own wood oven to bake pizza’s in. To know where to find Del Popolo, simply check their Twitter of Facebook for their next location.
love this interview with Bill Murray on The Talks. “People say they can’t find me. Well, if you write a good script, that is a lot harder than finding someone. It’s much harder to write a good screenplay than to find someone, so you can find someone.”
don’t forget to listen to the audio clip, it’s funny
