i was feeling a bit givey today - i guess i was just in a good mood and tiny opportunities presented themselves. in poking around the interwebs this morning, i came across a link to good magazine's site. they're taking the "radiohead approach" and offering subscriptions on a pay what you will basis, and giving the proceeds to the charity of your choice. i chose kiva.org, since i think kiva is pretty wonderful. so, while i'd sworn off subscribing to magazines not long ago, i couldn't resist their promotion.
also, this week i've been all over the radio times with marty moss coane podcasts again. i was really big into listening to marty at the first architecture firm i worked for when i moved to philadelphia about three years ago. i think she's just the bee's knees for a few reasons, but mostly because she's really great at mediating between guests, keeping the conversation on point and productive, and remaining impressively neutral. and the show topics are all over the place, much of it philly related in some way. it's fun to think about completely different things from day to day when i'm working.
speaking of philly relatedness, i'll leave you with a few things from some of my favorite philly makers. and look for a big update to the shop with lots of fresh, very new types of girlscantell goodies!
