Joe Six Pack

I recently came across the best thing ever offered by Fresh Direct. If you don't know it, Fresh Direct is a grocery delivery service in New York that I think it pretty great. Great for all those things you don't want to carry up 6 flights of stairs or 3 avenues across. Great for the fact that their prices are better than the stores! And exceptional for what I just found. They call it Joe Six Pack and it's their choice of six mix and match bottles of beer out of their inventory. It's only $4.99! And they gave me good beer! I can't get a six pack of Old English in this city for $4.99! The only unfortunate part is that there's a limit of four.
One more great thing I found is this Zoya nail polish exchange. First of all their nail polish doesn't contain toluene, formaldehyde, DBP (phthalates) and camphor. I've been trying hard lately to find health/beauty product with less chemicals in them, so this is right up my alley. Of course, I'm always skeptical on how well they'll work. Sometimes you just need a chemical to do the job correctly. However, in the case of Zoya's nail polish, you really don't! Went on like a dream and I've gone 4 days so far without a chip. The best part is that they're having a nail polish exchange right now through the end of April. You send them at least 6 bottles of old/used nail polish you don't want and they'll send you the equal amount of Zoya polish back. You pick the colors and send in the form along with $3/bottle that you're ordering/exchanging. $3 bottles of nail polish sans the usual slew of chemicals?! I love it!


"You know what really grinds my gears...?"

Some friends (and bandmates) of mine have decided to do a once monthly multimedia event at a club here in the city. There will always be a performance by Pile of Kittens (they're hosting) but the rest of what happens each month will be determined as it goes along. It's called Grind My Gears and the first one is happening on April 2nd at the Pyramid Club. I, along with other members of my photo a day project mentioned previously on this blog right here, will be exhibiting photos! There will also be several short films and two other bands performing. AND if you feel the need to rant about something into a microphone you can do that too! As long as you start it with "you know what really grinds my gears....". If you're local to NYC come on down!!!!! If you just want to watch us remotely become a fan on facebook!


"...you don't even have to go to Europe any more... just go to Pittsburgh."

Feeling So Wrong and Right Man

As an ongoing theme I think I'll continue to share photos from my 365/photo a day project. I've already started to get lazy and it's only March, so I'm trying to make up for it. Since I want to make an all photo calendar i.e. all the text and numbers are from photographs I take, whenever I miss a day of taking a picture, I will photograph whatever number day that happens to be, for the calendar. Once I run out of dates I can move on to spelling days of the week, but hopefully it won't come to that. Anyway, here are a few of my favorites from the last month or so. I've just listed all three on Etsy as well. Let me know what you think! Everyone who does (leaves a comment here - please include which photo you'd want) will be granted one entry into winning one of the three photos - you pick which one. If you already follow me you have one entry to start off with. If you just now sign up to follow that counts as one too. Leave comments on any other posts and I'll give you another entry! Thanks for looking! Giveaway ends midnight 3/9.
