friday favorites: october 29

photo I took of my last ride on the V train before it was decommissioned

SEE IT: photography I fell for this week
The NYC Subway system turned 106 years old this week. To mark the occassion, the New York Times published photos of the city's subway from over the years. There are some really great photos in this series, check 'em out!

 

WATCH IT: videos I peeped this week that you should too
The David Crowder* Band made a stop-motion music video for their single "SMS [Shine]" featuring 700,000 lite brite pegs and some serious animation... I miss my lite brite!

This guy seems oddly obsessed with KT Tunstall, but the video he made is super entertaining (KT thought so too and tweeted the link).

Tilt-shift videos fascinate me. They offer such a cool point of view and make ordinary events seem pretty magical. This is definitely one of the coolest ones I've seen, made at Coachella.

 

HEAR IT: songs I downloaded this week
I'm going to see Guster, Civil Twilight and Anberlin tonight and tomorrow! I'm pretty amped to see Guster and Civil Twilight again, and I'm a newbie to Anberlin's music but I'm liking what I've heard so far.

1. Soundtrack 2 My Life by KiD CuDi 2. Make Her Say by KiD CuDi 3. Sweet Disposition by The Temper Trap 4. On the Ocean by Guster 5. Do You Love Me by Guster 6. Disappear by Anberlin 7. Paperthin Hymn by Anberlin

DO IT: things to add to your weekend calendar
Tonight at 9p- get your dance on at Lincoln Center's I Love Vinyl. DJs will be spinning records and encouraging you to participate in the event by emailing photos and interacting with AURICLE- a logo booth created just for ILV. 

Check out MOVE! at PS1- a 2 day event this weekend showcasing the collaborations of artists and designers. Some of the pairings include Kalup Linzy and Diane Von Furstenberg; Rob Pruitt and Marc Jacobs; Olaf Breuning and Cynthia Rowley; Brody Condon and Rodarte; Rashaad Newsome and Alexander Wang; Dan Colen and Proenza Schouler; David Blaine and Adam Kimmel; Jonah Bokaer and Narciso Rodriguez. I can't wait to see what they've created!

The 38th Annual Village Halloween Parade begins at 7p on Sunday. I've never been to the parade, but judging by my past NYC Halloween experiences, I'm sure it's a sight to behold.
