Friday night music: Banks doing the Tiny Desk Concert for NPR

I’ve tweeted this before, but here it is again: Banks: Tiny Desk Concert : NPR.

I think the Tiny Desk Concerts are good, and Banks does a good job here of simplifying her sound without making it uninteresting.

Search around for other such concerts. Lots of musicians have done these gigs, and many of them are good if not great.

4 p.m. recipe: Butternut Squash and Saffron Risotto

This looks fantastic:

A perfect recipe for Autumn.

Thanks, K! đŸ™‚

And now, something unmotivational (but funny)

I unashamedly post alot of motivational things here. I hope this link to these funny unmotivational coffee mugs by Emily McDowell over at Boing Boing balances that out for people who feel they could use a break from such things. Boing Boing has lots of McDowell’s mugs and a link to more information. I want to get a collection of them. I would also be happy to get one as a present. Ahem. đŸ™‚

P.S. She has an etsy page if you want to buy her things.
