Intern’s Desk: a chicago music playlist

View the original post on the Stitely blog!

Music. It’s what fuels life. Music can alter emotions, move a crowd, bring a smile, and simply complement your life. It is so strong in fact, that often times I will be sitting on the train, walking through the city, or spending time with friends and hear a song that fits so perfectly with the moment that it is as if my life had a soundtrack. I believe though that everyone’s life has a soundtrack to some extent, be it music or the bustle of trains mixed in with city sounds.

Chicagoans are very fortunate to be surrounded by music. This is a city that has more street performers, live music events, and start-up bands than you could count. For this reason this blog will be dedicated to those Chicago artists that may not be as known. Give them a listen. They may end up in your playlists or your life soundtrack.

1. The Bright White – Red Summer Rose

2. Gaberdine – 1918

3. I Luv Luv Birds – Flicker

4. California Wives – Blood Red Youth

5. Smith Westerns – All Die Young

6. The Corduroy – Lines

7. Emblems – To Your Door

8. Paper Arrows – Look Alive

9. The Congregation – Save the Wine

10. Dastardly – Villain

Any other Chicago bands to listen to? Leave a comment, I would love to listen.

Intern’s Desk: a creative proposal

View the original post on the Stitely blog.
When a man proposes they want everything to be just right. They want it to be romantic, memorable, and special in every way so that hopefully the woman before their eyes will become their soon-to-be wife. There are many ways in which men plan for this, whether it be roses, candles, a romantic dinner, beaches, horse-and-carriage rides, or even Muppets. Yes! I said Muppets.

Now, I know what your thinking. Yes, everyone loves Jim Henson and his Muppet stories. And yes, these have become such icons in society that even the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago has created an exhibit about them, but how is this a way to propose? Well leave it to Sid Ceaser, a New Hampshire photographer, to find a very romantic and original way to propose with custom designed Muppets.

Ceaser bought custom designed Muppets that resembled the couple, created a movie trailer, and convinced a movie theater to play this trailer before a film that he and his soon-to-be fiancée were attending. More details on how he created this video, along with the story of the proposal can be found on his blog: http://ceaserphotography.com/blog/archives/192

Will this start a Muppet proposal trend across the country? Probably not, but I am sure it will keep people thinking about new and creative ways to propose. Here is the proposal trailer!
