Luster Cluster: Brussels Sprouts, scribbles, and music tv

January 16, 2013


Time for Luster Cluster! It’s been a while, folks!

Here are a few things I’ve found around the web lately.

Typeface for Doctors… love it!

JD and I get DirecTV, but we have the very basic package. For the past few weeks, the channel called Palladia has been giving us a little free trial of goodness. I don’t know much about it… I think it’s owned by MTV and VH1 or something, but it’s all of what was awesome about music channels before “Jersey Shore” and other “music” shows arrived. JD recorded a bunch of live concerts they have been showing, and we’ve been watching/listening happily to Arcade Fire, Vampire Weekend, Walk the Moon, Mumford, Avetts, Temper Trap, Passion Pit, you know the drill. Good stuff.

If I could share all of my Google Reader stars with you, I would. Here’s are two of my recent highlighted posts that I think will be very helpful in the upcoming year:

“How to fly with a toddler,” by both Hither and Thither and Cup of Jo blogs.

I love using old family heirlooms and antique furniture mixed in with otherwise modern furniture. Design*Sponge collects a roundup of its Sneak Peeks in a “best of” collection.

These are pretty fun, no?

Each day, in my inbox, I get two comic strips: Arlo & Janis and Calvin & Hobbes. I have a soft spot in my heart for comics, what can I say? So in preparation for the Super Bowl, coming up in just a few short weeks, I just had to share this giggle.

I love my new job… (love it!)… but I’m now in a cubicle rather than an office “room,” and I’m struggling how to decorate it. I’m guessing this is too much? (It’s cool for a party, though. via Style Me Pretty)

Finally Tom’s that are work appropriate!

And, last but not least… brussels sprouts. Why are they the “it” vegetable right now? Here are a bunch of recipes for them… someone please make them so I can try them please!

    I think that everything composed was actually very logical.
    However, what about this? suppose you were to create a killer post title?
    I ain’t saying your content is not good., however what if you added a post title to maybe grab a person’s attention? I mean Luster Cluster: Brussels Sprouts, scribbles,
    and music tv | Kate Schmate is a little boring. You ought to glance at Yahoo’s
    home page and see how they create article headlines to
    get viewers to open the links. You might add a related video or
    a related picture or two to get people excited about what
    you’ve written. In my opinion, it could bring your blog a little livelier.
