Ear to the Ground: Karen O's "Crush Songs"

There's virtually nothing I can say (because mere words cannot fully capture the magic that is in this album), but Karen O is everything awesome in one person and this album is phenomenal, but I'll try. Although I will always reserve a special piece of my heart for Yeah Yeah Yeahs, her solo work is an exceptional blend of honesty and strength. Don't waste another second of your life without listening to this incredible artist.

DAILY DRIFTER: the hours

"Violence in the flowers where they found you
Can I wait the hours
Would it be untrue
Climb up to the tower
So that you can see
All across the hours"- BH

I found myself walking down North Williams the other day and even though it's still warm outside, you can feel summer starting to go into its deep annual slumber. You can feel it in the air and in the sunlight and everything around you-- this waiting and tension that makes us so impatient for pumpkin spice lattes, cozy pullovers, and leaf pile rambling . We're all waiting for something. We're waiting for the kettle to whistle, or the bus to arrive, or a multitude of other events that could occur in an otherwise linear day. What are you waiting for?

design therapy: FREE iPhone 5 Templates!

                                         d e s i g n   t h e r a p y

       Every once in a while, we like to give you guys a little freebie (because you deserve it, amiright?). Remember that "Asia 1960" set we did a while back? We decided to put them to good use and make fun clear-case inserts for your iPhone!  We'll also be making additional sets in the next few weeks for 4 and 5s users-- because we adore you precious angels, too. To get the template, just click on the image above (it should open in a new window full-size) and right click or drag to save the file to your computer. We had luck printing them at Kinko's (on a glossy, thick paper) but they're equally awesome on our Canon printer, so no worries there! Then just follow the instructions on the bottom. We purchased a clear case from Hobby Lobby (here), but there are tons on Amazon also if you don't have a HL in your area. Thanks to everyone who has been supporting this blog thus far! If you end up using these, please send us a link  or tag us on instagram (@tamer.animals) so we can see your beautiful handiwork! Comment below and let us know what you'd like to see for the next group! Any brave ideas?
