Sammlerin (Collector)
I've been on a bit of a vinyl record hunt lately, collecting my favourite albums. In Chicago, Wicker Park, I bought Joanna Newsom's Y's record. It's super lovely.  Joanna Newsom is one of the ballsyiest singers I know. She has a wild voice, wonderful melodies, and tells such fantastical stories in her tunes.

If you could just listen to one record for the rest of your life what would it be?
(You won't have to listen to it continuously... Just, it would be the only one you could listen to...)

I'd love to hear, who you love to listen to...


Chicago by Night
 Chicago is a beautiful place to walk around after dark.  It has wonderfully lit streets, fun public art, and interesting people watching.

 Cloud Gate (The Bean) by Anish Kapoor, is pretty wild and fun to walk around.

 Crown Fountain is an interactive public sculpture which spews water every 10 minutes or so out of the video faces on the towers... Very cool!

Chicago's streets are illuminated so well at night, we felt very safe and were wondering why. Then we realised it was almost day bright outside.

We'll have to come back and spend more time here.


Chicago Times
 Chicago has a beautiful skyline. It's a big city with a midwest feel. We were only there for a day and a half, but we loved it.

 We stayed at Hi-Chicago Hosel downtown. It was a great place to catch a train anywhere.

 Filter Coffee, in Wicker Park, was a hip place to get work done and read a book. I loved their vintage floral couches and their sweet potato fries

 When in Chicago it's nice to visit Reckless Records, I picked up a Joanna Newsom record.
