Stresses me out just to think about, but an interesting photo project: The Burning House: "If your house was burning, what would you take with you? It's a conflict between what's practical, valuable and sentimental. What you would take reflects your interests, background and priorities. Think of it as an interview condensed into one question."

But seriously, your yard is sort of evil...(pretty, though!). My friend Jeremiah says it best: "Yeah, I know, I've beaten this horse pretty well to death. But I have to post this video because I feel a deep spiritual kinship with this angry nerd as he performs his nerd-rant, which, as you probably know, is my primary form of communication."

NY Mag's always entertaining Look Book focuses this time on recently married same sex couples. Great portraits and interveiws.

I know bike or walk commuting isn't feasible for everyone, but these findings are interesting (and seem to hold true from my personal experience): "According to a paper by the Swiss economists Bruno Frey and Alois Stutzer, a person with a one-hour car commute must earn 40 percent more money to have a sense of well-being equal to someone who walks (or rides their bike) to work. Fey and Stutzer say that people underestimate the down side of a long commute when choosing a home, and that psychologically, a long commute often negates the benefits gained by living in the suburbs."

This contributes little, but I'll say it just the same: Your blog is so utterly, spectacularly perfect.
