I’m loving these inspirational postcards by FromKeetra that are simply titled, Cordially Invited. The series Invites you to do things that are out of the ordinary, like ‘Be Courgeous and Vulnerable’ or fun like ‘Invest in the Fantastic.’ While the messages alone are cute, the way in which they’re displayed are really engaging and excel far beyond the average inspirational tagline. Extremely beautiful and very well thought out.
Check out more of these under the cut.

I almost posted this only to my Twitter, but I can’t stop watching this so I figured it should go right on the blog. This clip is titled IDM Kid, but it’s straight up Aphex Twin craziness. Suposedly this was made by a guy named hellojed, but someone else posted it for him…? I’m not quite sure.
The video features this little girl, cut up and remixed to create an amazing little song using only her sounds. The effect is slightly creepy at the beginning, but then gets amazing around the 42 second mark. Just watch the whole thing, I promise you’ll absolutely get sucked into this. This is definitely one of those videos that you end up sending to everyone you know.

About Your Wallpaper:
My wallpaper pays homage to the Great Arnold Schwarzenegger, the only man on the universe whose powers of versatility know no bounds. From Mr Universe to Governor of California, no feat is too great for Arnie. He’s my inspiration.
I would definitely have to agree with Owen on this one, Ahnold is pretty awesome… except when it comes to politics, as California is kinda going to crap right now. Nonetheless, his movies are amazing and his versatility has always been astounding. Oh yeah, and Owen’s drawings are perfect and totally spot on. This should definitely make your friends and co-workers giggle.
UPDATE: I made a little mistake, Owen’s last name is Gatley, not Gateley. Sorry about that.
So, what are you doing this Friday?
Well if you happen to be in Los Angeles you should come out for the Poketo Karaoke Dance Party at Royal/T! Angie and Ted from Poketo are running amok in Royal/T right now, and this Friday will prove it. There’s going to be a karaoke contest where you can win prizes, and I just happen to be a special guest judge! If singing isn’t your thing though, you can always just dance, eat or drink the night away as well.
I hope to see lots of you there, and hopefully you’ll get up and sing!

Ghosts by Fanfarlo
The Walls Are Coming Down by Fanfarlo
I’ve been listening to Fanfarlo’s newest album Reservoir for a couple day shy of a month now, and it still continues to impress me. Fanfarlo is a 5 piece band from London who I heard about through Sigur Rós in some way. The album is pop-y with lots of different instruments sprinkled throughout. I can definitely see the album ending up on my Top 10 of year, simply because every song on the album sounds like it could be a single.
I’ve posted Ghost and The Walls Are Coming Down above for you all to hear, I think it gives a good idea of just how talented these folks are. Hopefully they continue to make incredible music and hopefully pop back into Los Angeles soon for a concert.
