Drew Barrymore Takes a Dip for Elle Magazine



As much as I wasn't feeling the underwater images for Anthropologie's new catalog, I'm really digging the watery shots of Drew Barrymore for Elle's May 2009 issue. In the photos styled by Joe Zee, little Grey (of Grey Gardens, that is) floated like an angel, with a beautiful smile.…

Multi-layered music from Zoe Keating with her Cello and Macbook

Zoe Keating is a performer who (in her own words) "fuses information technology and classical music". She uses her cello and Macbook to create beautiful multi-layered melodies that sound more like a complete orchestra than one live performer. She is currently touring with Amanda Palmer and in March she appeared at ETech in San Jose (video above). Also in this video we see some cool LIDAR technology (like radar but with lasers).



Zoe was trained in classical music…

Steve Jobs in Typography By Dylan Roscover

How amazing is this? Designed by Dylan Roscover, a self professed design geek, this portrait of Steve Jobs is a typeface-driven design based on the "Here's to the crazy ones" ad campaign from Apple in the 90s.

Our First West Coast Tour

Dear ladies and gentlemen,

I just can't wait to get out on the road again. I grew up on the road, traveling with different musical theater companies, and since then I've been far too stationary than I wish to be...even though LA is my happy home...
