It’s almost been an entire year since I’ve posted!
But I still regularly check in with my friends’ blogs, and saw that strandedstmarkscitylights tagged me in a post about the first 10 songs that come up when my iPod is on shuffle. I liked the idea! Here’s my list:
1. I Get Crazy - Nicki Minaj
2. It Takes A Muscle - M.I.A.
3. Turn Me On - Nina Simone
4. All That - MC Lyte
5. Agitation - Erykah Badu
6. Purpose In Your Storm - Michelle Williams
7. Love Can’t Hide - Faith Evans
8. VSOP - K. Michelle
9. Stickin’ Chickens - Missy Elliott, Da Brat, Aaliyah
10. Best Of Me - Chrisette Michele
Yes, I own all of Michelle Williams’ solo albums. Otherwise, a surprisingly non-embarrassing playlist. Also, surprisingly void of Bey and Mariah. Fun!

“It is important to find the joy in what you are doing. Even if you are exhausted, if you still have the determination to deliver the concept—which is more important than your own self—then the joy will be there. True love for whatever you are doing is the answer to everything.”

FALL PREVIEW - Here’s a detail of a Alison Saar's new drawing Pearly Study, which will be on view in her upcoming L.A. Louver exhibition opening this fall.
This work belongs to her sugar sack shroud series, featuring drawings made directly on found sugar sacks that are worn down from use, and still bear traces of their original labeling.

Alison Saar is so great.
