Little Bits for a Monday

April 25th, 2011

Happy Monday my darlings! Did everyone have a good Easter weekend? Are we sufficiently sated by endless gobs of chocolate? Do we perhaps never want to see another egg again? Indeed.

This morning I have a wonderful post-holiday present for you: a new song from Mumford and Sons! The song, “Lovers Eyes”, was captured by an enthusiastic fan at the group’s April 13th gig at PC Richard & Sons Theater, NYC. With the band showcasing new work on tour, this will likely happen more often, allowing us deliciously guilty sneak listens of what might grace the tracklist of their next album. Enjoy!

I adore this new ad campaign from classic book distributor, Mint Vinetu, created by the Lithuanian ad company, Love. It’s like the literary version of Sleeveface:

When I was little I dreamed of rigging up a hammock in my bedroom. Now that I’m all grown up, I’ve moved on to more realistic desires. Like this for example:
