Have been trying to purchase this ueber-cute car-stuffed-thingy over at etsy for the past 15 minutes. My account sign up doesn't seem to go through. Booo hoo! (Etsy = a website where people can sell anything they want, as long as it’s handmade.)

The more you seek security, the less of it you have. But the more you seek opportunity, the more likely it is that you will achieve the security that you desire.

I was just thinking how uninspired I am by the graphic design scene these days and ...wooosh... there I come across Jonathan Yuen's portfolio site which made my heart jump. What beautiful work and overall aesthetics!

I especially like "Flesh" in his Self-Study Projects.
Yay, I feel inspired!

muji cd player

Oh, I love Muji's wallmounted CD-Player - perfect for my bathroom! I can't seem to find an online store for the US though. Bummer. I know that the MoMA stores started carrying MUJI products, this CD player is not part of their current inventory though.

Does anyone know where I could buy one of these in the US?
