This is a piece of pure beauty. Visuals, music, everything. A masterpiece by someone previously unknown to me.

I had never heard of Me until a recent weekend visit to Seattle.
At the Ace Hotel, they have a spread of free magazines. Not surprisingly, most are tourist maps or local events papers. But then I saw the cover with the lobster on her head.
I picked it up – small format, heavy stock matte paper. Really nice feel to it. It pleased my fingers, but would it please my eyes and mind?
Apparently so. It’s a collection of short interviews with regular people – a chef, a waitress, a painter, a social worker, and many more. Just regular people being asked interesting stuff and getting photographed by really talented photographers. What a great idea! Remind everyone who ISN’T a celebrity that their story matters, too.
