BETTER DAYS.

Edward+Sharpe++The+Magnetic+Zeros+Edward+Sharpe++the+Magnetic+Ze

Check out the recently released “Better Days” from Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zero’s upcoming self-titled third album, due out July 23rd. Being in a bad mood after listing to them = virtually impossible. Happy Monday listening IRVers!

HOW TO DANCE TO DAFT PUNK.

What do magnificent pant suits and 1970’s soul train have in common with Daft Punk? More than you would think.

LONELY PLANET.

Picked up 3 Lonely Planet travel guides at Value Village this weekend, and spent the better part of today reading “South America on a Shoestring”. Why can’t I have a job that pays me lots of money, and allows me to take 3 months off at a time? This travel bug situation I’ve got going is becoming problematic.

BEST BEAT

Heard this song at a predrink and we have been obsessed with it since. Give it a listen and it soon will be a favourite.

ALL MY EX’S LIVE IN TEXAS

To all the beauties out in Calgary, IRV tip our hats to you and cheers to what is probably going to be the best weekend of your summer. Table dancing at Cowboys is still awaiting the cross off from our bucket list and hopefully it will happen sooner than later.

And remember- save a horse, ride a cowboy.

MORNING.

What I wish my Friday morning looked like.

MRS. CARTER IN GLITTER

IRV loves Beyonce as does 99.999% of the human population on this planet. We could go on and on about our boodilicoius girl crush, but we will rap it up and say that boys want to get with her, and girls want to be her (Drake even wrote a song about it!) So check out her sexci sexci new cover and spread for Flaunt magazine where B only be rockin dem sparkle thingz! You go girl!

SAN FERMIN.

Stumbled upon these guys the other day, and haven’t stopped listening to them since. Love the casual trumpet they’ve got going in the background. Give them a listen!

CREATED EQUAL

ImageThis stunning collection of photos was taken by the very talented Mark Laita on the inevitable inequality of human kind. Heavy stuff mind you, these pictures are so beautiful and challenge one to think about life & fate and the effect they have on the person you become. The power of comparing two people so radically different makes you wonder what their story is and if we were all created equal, what happen along the way. Enjoy!

GROUPER.

grouper-fish-logo

This is a GENIUS idea. We’ve all spent an hour relaying in detail all the hilarious details of a blind date to our friends… so why not bring them with you?!? Grouper pairs groups of three friends, with another group of three to go on a group blind date, or a “Grouper”. It just recently became available, and sounds like a hilarious time all around. Sign IRV up ASAP.
