last week… tonight.

i don’t watch comedy news shows (a la Jon Stewart) often… i’m not sure why though, because they always at least get a chuckle out of me. anyhow, i caught the show ‘Last Week Tonight with John Oliver the other day, and I really liked it.. Not just because it’s funny, but I think because they pick a topic and go in on it for more than 2 minutes.

…or maybe the show had me from the beautiful opening credits, designed by Trollbäck+Company:

this one has caught my eye lately….Villa Extramuros in Alentejo, Portugal.

…it connects the Royal Ballet School directly to the Grade 1 listed Royal Opera House.

so if you’re a student at the Royal Ballet School, you’re literally walking towards your aspiration… and what a lovely space to serve that purpose.

the art of storytelling.

I always appreciate the songs that have a full story to them… so have been thinking of my Top 3 at the moment.

Frank Ocean’s ‘American Wedding’ is at the top of my list. (especially since it’s an Eagles Cover)

Enjoy. : )

Bonus Round after the jump!
