 My passion is producing electronic pop music, and for the past six months I have been producing my first record. I plan on releasing the record early next year, but in the mean time, I decided to have some fun! I’ve been in the studio producing my own music mash-ups; I take two songs, one classic and one current, and combine them to make one original tune! For example, my first release featured Color Me Badd’s ‘I Wanna Sex You Up’ and Taylor Swift’s ’22′. Stay tuned for the next one which is Miley Cyrus’ ‘Wrecking Ball’ and Meatloaf’s ‘I Would Do Anything For Love’ on SoundCloud and Oct. 16th on Youtube.

Favorite Drink

Hibiscus Iced Tea from Starbucks.

It’s the Little Things

  • Sunshine (I’m a vitamin D addict)
  • Dancing alone in my undies to pop music (Spice Girls….I’m a nineties bitch! I love it!)
  • The ice that comes in little baby sized pellets. I call it chewy ice. GIMME.

My Coffee Table

My coffee table is a trunk that I found at a Vintage Automobile swap meet in Long Beach for 20 bucks. Major steal!

Some of the items on the table: A vintage postcard of Lake of the Isles in Minneapolis, MN. If you look hard enough- you can see my heart sunbathing on the shoreline. No really, I left it there. Hashtag HOME. A sample of my sister’s artwork (I Think About You- card). She makes clever letterpress cards that you can buy at The Paper Source and on her website. Tickets to Purity Ring at the Fonda…a souvenir from a great show… plus we got to celebrate Corin’s birthday with him backstage! Life is good! I love to read and am currently going through an English historical fiction stage, so books about the Lancasters, Yorks, and Tudors are all up my alley. This is probably what inspired my mash-up of Lorde’s Royals… images of Anne Boleyn and Queen Elizabeth are swimming around in my head!

We have a lot up our sleeves that we will soon make public. But for now we are in the process of getting our warehouse in order to be more showroom-y and to make space for more loot!

Favorite Drink

We’re both avid iced tea drinkers.

It’s the Little Things

  •  original chippy furniture
  • learning a vintage item’s backstory
  • karaoke

Our Coffee Table

screen-shot-2012-12-12-at-11-10-41-pm  On the table: fabrics that we look at daily to cover our furniture, the rolodex full of contacts and clients, my BookBook cover for my macbook pro, a glass of water, and tons of string, stamps and crafts are always around at the loot offices. Fun to do, and fun to look at.

coffee tableIMG_1124We love PLUTO. It is the perfect height, perfect chippy metal, great colors, and reminds us of a planet. We have many coffee tables that we like to give our attention, so ask us next week and it will probably be something different. Pluto was purchased from a private seller who loved it as much as we did but couldn’t get it to work in her home.

Do what you love. Love what you do.
