My dear bud Matty, aka @yo_matty, is one of the best photographers to follow. He gets the most beautiful and varied shots of New York City — especially enhanced by his insane office view that he documents on an almost-daily basis — and his Instagram images are now available as canvas prints via Instacanv.as! Prints start at $39.95. These featured here are some of his recent ones, but you should definitely check out his full gallery, so many good ones in there.

“When we and my best friend see two open seats at the bar”
I laugh out loud at this Tumblr feed #whatshouldwecallme on a very regular basis. She writes captions to various animated gifs.
“When I went apartment hunting in New York”
“When the person I’ve been arguing with makes a valid point”
“When I go over to my friends apartment and don’t see any food”
“Getting out of bed on a Monday”
“When people walk really slow in front of me”
“When I try to get off the internet, but some website sucks me back in”

Most of my pals know I’m a podcast junkie. One of my all-time favorites is Radiolab, which many of you are probably familiar with. If not, you should definitely check it out. It’s on public radio stations across the country or available as a podcast through iTunes or streaming from the Radiolab site. It will provide you with an endless supply of some of the most fascinating information in the realm of science, philosophy, and human experience, while keeping your attention rapt the entire way through. It makes me happy, laugh, contemplate, shudder and zing. And then I go off and talk incessantly about it.
Here’s a recent episode that — oh how typical — blew my mind.

Yesterday was Brooklyn Based’s annual Wedding Crashers fair, held at The Green Building, a beautiful old industrial space on the Gowanus Canal. Here are a few snapshots of the Paperfinger table.
Paperfinger was alongside a great group of wedding vendors and when we weren’t too busy chatting, we got to sample some amazing eats from all the incredible catering companies represented — Naturally Delicious, herb-n-peach, Shelsky’s Smoked Fish, Mile End, Marlow & Sons Events, The Meat Hook. For sweets, we enjoyed yummy treats from One Girl Cookies, Bee’s Knees Baking Co., and COOLHAUS.
Our table neighbor, Fox Fodder Farm, creates beautiful floral garlands and arrangements. And By Brooklyn was there with some great welcome-favor sets. Also great to see our friends from Lion in the Sun. We met lots of friendly Brooklyn couples — all in all a good event and a non-stop day. Time to collapse.

My photos on Instagram never make it to the blog, so I’m going to start posting some weekly. Instagram is so much fun and one of the most uplifting forms of social media.
