Faucethead - Seasonal Playlist

Over ten years ago my friend Scott and I devised an annual event called the Mid-Winter Warm-Up. The concept was simple; save up some cash, rent out a bar with a fireplace, and [in Chicago's dead of Winter] invite all of our friends out for free Guinness. Years later, Scott came to his senses and moved to Southern California while nearly everyone else in the country lives through a deep freeze.

This playlist goes out to all of us who brave the elements to meet friends at that restaurant or bar, all of us who’ve developed a semi-unhealthy appreciation and bond with our warmest pair of socks, and all of us who could use a Mid-Winter Warm-Up.

This is an open invitation to all friends, clients, readers and listeners — In honor of our Mid-Winter tradition, stop by the studio or give us a call and we’ll be happy to buy you a Guinness.

radiant orchid: pantone color of the year

Though the colors we see most often this time of year are black, grey and white, there’s a new color heading your way for 2014. Allow me to introduce you to Radiant Orchid, Pantone’s 2014 Color of the Year. Described as “expressive, creative and embracing,” my initial reaction was more along the lines of “meh.” Articles enticing me to “incorporate radiant orchid into my wardrobe and home” fell flat until I did some visual research of my own. Turns out, Radiant Orchid isn’t so bad after all. The proof is below.
