Love List

1. Fly Art is billed as "an homage to the finer things in life: art and hip hop." The result is a quirky piece of digital art where the art and the lyrics speak together and make you look at each in a new way. You can find more of these creations by Gisella Velasco and Toni Potenciano on their Tumblr page.

2. The Urban Skyfarm is a farm on a skyscraper. Takes urban farming to a whole new level, right? It certainly puts my little deck garden tomatoes to shame, but I think it's a really cool concept with the potential to bring more fresh produce to congested urban centers. It also makes me want to expand my garden (but since my herbs bit the dust, I think I'll see how the tomatoes do first).

3. A girlfriend turned me on to Lake Street Dive this week. Their sound is right up my alley (if I can be said to have an alley with the eclectic mix currently filling my playlists).

4. This story about an elephant who cried upon rescue was so touching. I also learned a lot about elephants and their emotional IQ.

5. I've loved Sia and her work for a long time. So happy 1000 Forms of Fear is finally out.

6. I heard about Rack & Ruin on the Elvis Duran Show this week and decided to check it out. In the 25 minutes it took me to watch the first 5 episodes, I went from curious to obsessed. Love Saffron.!!

7. Spiritual Gangster is a clothing line that appeals to the yogi in me and I love the message. I mean if you must be a gangster (and you must be for something in your life), why not be one on behalf of spirituality.

8.  This may be the easiest way to peel a mango I've ever seen. Now, if there was only something for cleanly getting rid of the seed/pit.

9. I'm kinda loving watermelon granita lately. It only has 3 components: watermelon, sugar and lime juice (though you can add alcohol if you want it) and is really simple to make (just freeze and agitate). It's the perfect refreshing treat for the super hot days of July.
