i recently read this article in wired magazine: In a Perpetual Present- the strange case of a woman who couldn't remember her past and can't imagine her future. http://www.wired.com/2016/04/susie-mckinnon-autobiographical-memory-sdam/ (great accompanying art/photos, by the way)

it's a fascinating condition that is described as just knowing past things as facts, but not knowing how they made you feel because you can't remember it happened to you.

well, i had to do a quick brain inventory to see if the same was true to me.  luckily i have a normal memory by the article's standards.  i get pretty excited (emotional) about music and i immediately thought about how when i saw metric in concert i was crying my eyes out during their last song from happiness.  but i wanted to think of an older, specific memory and pulled out from my mental filing cabinet...


i was doing clinical rotations at DLS Queens in hematology.  they have a clock radio on the bench and the DJs are interviewing Daniel Dae Kim.  i can't recall if he was here for LOST or HI50 (i'm almost sure it was for LOST).  the DJs were finishing up the interview by asking what he was listening to lately and he said to check out The XX.  the DJs had never heard of the band so he said their album cover was just one big X.  I had heard of the band because they were being promoted in sxsw but had never stopped to listen to any songs.  the DJs promised to find some music by the XX and play it for the listeners... and they did!  they conjurred up the song Basic Space and it was good!  i've been listening to the band ever since.  such simple and poetic songs and the vocal harmonies are sweet.  Thanks you, Daniel Dae Kim for making me finally listen to the XX.

here are some XX recommendations for you:

Basic Space




i've been thinking about all of these memories the last few days (so meta) and naturally my train of thought led to... http://lookbook.nu/look/8316363-Daydreamer-La-Blue-Box-Lululemon-Minimalist

ok, i splurged and went back and bought that leotard, i couldn't resist!  but it fits so good... i'm going to wear it to aerial every week.  WORTH IT.

i was thinking what to call this look and it was so obvious with all the Xs in the back...
