magic fireplace


available in black or stainless steel, this sleek ultramodern fireplace burns bio-ethanol as fuel (don’t let the name fool you, it’s not really an environmentally responsible or viable alternative fuel, at least the american version). the fireplace is wall hung and requires no chimney, flue, logs, or smoke and is designed by radius. personally, i think this is a piece of gorgeous design and i would love to see it installed in person (preferably in my home). all of this just in time for winter.

chipotle loves mies


i headed into my local chipotle today for lunch expecting nothing out of the ordinary.  only, i found the back of one employee’s t-shirt reading, “good is in the details” (it was a chipotle t-shirt).  i couldn’t help but have a good laugh.  unfortunately, i did’t have a camera with me to catch the slogan.  i have to wonder who in the marketing/advertising department had the wherewithal to pun mies’ infamous quote, “god is in the details.”
