Weekend Links.



Here I sit, a bit worse for wear and recovering from a rousing evening of chicken-dancing and hokey-pokey-ing! Oktoberfest started last night, and I'm lucky {or unlucky?} enough to live right next door to the festivities. After all of that beer and brat madness, I look forward to a low-key weekend. My boyfriend's parents are coming into town for a quick visit, so we're trying to think of yummy local restaurants to take them to...I hope they're not in the mood for German! I'm also looking forward to finally watching Ladies and Gentlemen, the Fabulous Stains -- a DVD that has been on my queue for ages. What are your weekend plans? Is Oktoberfest in full-force where you live??

Enjoy the links!

::Have you heard of the Museum of Everything? Outsider art is the focus of this fantastic new London museum.

::Super cute and vintage-y Holiday Cheat Sheets {free to download}.

::Bookshelf chairs on Oh, Joy! So freaking clever!

::B. Vikki Vintage shop and blog features advertising campaigns and fashion editorials from Black/African-American publications, video clips, found photographs, etc from the 1950s-1960s.

::I'm digging The X-X's new album! They are like New Order's sultrier, sweeter younger siblings. If you haven't had the pleasure yet, take a listen here and here.

::Mira Nair's new film Amelia {about the life of Amelia Earhart} is finally out! Three cheers for films about amazing women, directed by amazing women!

::Man Shops Globe is a new show on the Sundance channel about Keith Johnson -- the man who does the buying for Anthropologie stores. This is the kind of show that could persuade me to splurge on cable TV. Here is a lovely post on Poppy Talk about some of the artists featured on the show.
