ECHO PARK MODERN



As a resident of Echo Park myself i love knowing that beautiful homes exist hidden in these hills. One of my all time favorites is found over on Baxter. Recently however i discovered this beautiful small indoor/outdoor home on Landa St. The best part is its under a mil! Although the indoor space is small, the design is gorgeous. Make sure to check out the link for pics of the bathroom and 800 sq ft of deck.

WE WERE PROMISED JETPACKS - THESE FOUR WALLS

Stop what your doing and listen to this! I haven't been this into a new album since Bloc Party's - Silent Alarm, and that's probably because this is like the new improved Bloc Party of Scotland. Residing in Glasgow this band offers the same melodic twinkly catchy sounds that came from Silent Alarm, but then manages to transform each song into something more rooted, deep, and in my opinion, original. Give the album a good 3 or 4 listens and you won't be able to put it down.



For those of you who are followers of my blog i will give the album away to the first 5 requests. If you dont follow Jamitdown yet, nows the time to start!

CO.Z






Zoë Chaos and Jack Horkings have no idea what they're doing, but they're doing it. Zoe has been a close friend since i was designing at RISD. She would encourage, support, and stand by me as i
came into my design sense. She also was a very wonderful model for all my crits (Thank you Zoë). Now I can only encourage everyone else to take a moment out of your busy lives to sit back, and enjoy some fun, light-hearted, catchy tunes from Co.Z
