mary and max

Mary and Max is one of the best movies I've ever seen. It had me laughing hysterically, and crying just as hard. It's about a young girl who lives in Australia and her pen pal who lives in New York. Mary is a chubby little thing with glasses, not-so-attentive  troubled parents, and a birthmark on her forehead the color of 'poop'. Max is 44 year old man who has lives alone with his numerous pets, has Asperger Syndrome, and likes to eat chocolate hotdogs (his very own invention). Both Max and Mary have had difficult lives, but through each other they're able to find solace. 

It's streaming on Netflix if you want to check it out. Enjoy, if you do. :)

i need a favor

Ok, so, a co-worker sent me a link to this image and I lost it! Ahhh-I love Arrested Development and if you do to, you will understand why this crest is hilarious. Plus-it is beautifully illustrated. The original design was created by Edman Goodrich, aka edman.

Intro. Mad Men from Jon Otaola on Vimeo.

If you know me at all, then you are probably aware that I am obsessed with Mad Men. I have recently been getting season 4 from Netflix and gorging myself with episodes. For me, this is the perfect show that ties in several things that I love the most, which are mid-century furniture, beautiful 1960's fashion, great acting (not that I am an expert or anything) & a great storyline (ditto) and last but definitely not least-graphic design/marketing. For me, this television series is full on captivating! The intro itself says so much without saying anything at all, as does the actual show.
