rather obsessed with the wallpapers from Falvor Paper on WallnutWallpaper.com.  I will find a way to incorporate these into my new home.

I love the ‘three-berth sleeping cave’ in the kids room at Alexandre de Betak’s house in Majorca that was just featured in The New York Times magazine last weekend.  Awesome sauce.

Kingston Lounge

This guy goes to abandoned hospitals, marked buildings and creepy sites like Hart Island and takes photos.  I love Admiral’s Row in Brooklyn, which is how i found his site - when I was researching its history.  The photos are so scary and beautiful.

I went to college with Diego Garcia.  I really love his new video for ‘Seperate Lives’, shot at the Standard in LA.  This song reminds me of balmy nights in Jamaica,  really.

If you have ever eaten chocolate, or caramel, and enjoyed it, you should probably hurry to Brooklyn and eat the hell out of this chocolate and caramel cake with sea salt on top of it. I hate to give up one of my favorite secrets, but…its just too good.  Its.  just.  too.  good.
here is a link to their website.  Where there is no mention of the special chocolate/caramel cake and its saltiness.  http://marlowandsons.com/

I’m not going to say this is not important.  Because it is.  
It’s artist Nick Cave’s ‘Soundsuit #3’ 2010, a work on paper.  I found it on my friend’s website, Art+Culture, which sells art from emerging artists for not too much dough.  Its a really superb idea and they have some amaze-ball stuff. (Amaze-ball is also an important new phrase for me). www.aceditions.com.

Major Crushing on Tacombi Fonda Nolita

This place just opened up across the street from me.  It serves fresh, hot tacos from an old VW van parked inside an old garage.  My brother and I go there every morning to eat chorizo egg tacos and chat before work starts (gloriously, they open at 8am and stay open till 2a.m).  My favorite part is that all the tables say SERENA on them.  I don’t know why, I think its a Spanish thing.  Serena comes from Sirene which means mermaid, which comes from the sirens in Homer’s Odyssey (I don’t know that for sure but I’m guessing thats right.  Isn’t that the whole point of reading those ancient texts?  Because they relate to everything in our modern day language and culture?)

Richard Wilson’s 20:50 (1987) is my favorite art installation of all time.  The only permanent exhibit at The Saatchi gallery in London, it is essentially a room filled with oil.  The light in the room reflecting off the still oil creates an optical illusion - every day, a visitor ends up sticking their arm or finger in it, not quite believing its there.  Its truly awesome.
