How Do You Say...

There is nothing like a good data visualization! I have been all over these dialect survey maps by Ph. D candidate Joshua Katz from North Carolina State University, who examined the linguistics study by Professor Vert Beaux and Scott Golder for the raw data. Isn't it fascinating? Corbett pointed out that the tip of Florida often mimics New York - evidence of migration, perhaps? :)

I am definitely from Texas. Except when it comes to pajamas.

I Was Dreaming This

Sophia Narrett has created some of the most painterly embroidery I have seen in a long time. Each stitch is treated like a brushstroke, giving these narrative scenes a lush, dreamy quality. The colors seem blended, the textures happenstance, but they are not. Every thread is purposeful, which is one of the most intriguing qualities to me about embroidery. Narrett has a solo show up at Space Gallery in Portland, ME right now, I Was Dreaming This, if you want to go obsess over them in person.

Music: The Barbaras

It's been a while since I've posted some music, but lately I've been cooking with the windows open and Pandora on so I've been making playlists in my mind. I was listening to the Patsy Cline station early last week and over the weekend (it's so good! promise.), and I heard 3 songs in a row all by ladies named Barbara. That got me perusing my music library a little later and you know what? Barbara must be a golden name for the musically-inclined because there are a bunch of them. Barbara Acklin, Barbara Lewis, Barbara Lynn, and Barbara George among them. I could listen to these women sing all day.
