Annoying vs Dick
Annoying: Not putting my wet sheets in the dryer when you put your clothes in the washer. Dick: Putting them on top of my DRY clothes making both sheets and once dry clothes now all wet. p.s. I can hear your straight male ass playing Beyonce “Let me upgrade” right now point of information: ‘straight male ass’ refers to neither Moises nor Scott.

William Eggleston and Charlotte Rampling for Marc Jacobs. Photo Juergen Teller Also writes about it in British Vogue (read here) “He’s unbelievably charismatic and can charm people to do whatever he wants.” Also JA once said, “You will forever live in the shadow of Mr. Eggleston, Mr. Shore.” I like that.
An American President, Totally Awkward
“I didn’t decide to send 455 to the floor to get you back.” “And I didn’t come back because you sent 455 to the floor.” OMG, most romantic movie line of all time.

Society of the Spectacle: NOW in 3D!
They say ones culture makes the media, not the other way around. So what does it mean when cinema is not only quickly making the transition over to 3D but also going back and, through the magical magicness of computer technology, converting traditional 2D films into 3D wonderfests?

Pre Fall '10
I still really don’t get the idea of Pre Fall- it just sort of seems like a way to step on the boys toes— Lets release women’s pre fall clothes during men’s week because fashion is really about women right? But style wise, I can get behind it. Its exactly what you have on now (skinny bottom, big top silhouette- black stockings) PLUS lace, leather, feathers, fur, and any...

Heading in the right direction.
There has been all this talk (I don’t know by whom, look it up), about the lack of fashion on the red carpet at this years Golden Globes. Dresses were boring, celebrities don’t want to take risks, AND designers are annoyed with all the courting. Bravo, I say. Then Prada releases this film by artist Yang Fudong and I say Bravo, again. Make art, not celebrity! And Pringle of...
Its rare that things make me dig deep into my closet to try out new things. These did. I want to buy all the white things American Apparel has to offer and tie dye them. Shabd via Shiny Squirrel
Hot, Red Headed Men Making Chocolate
Mast Brothers Chocolate The Selby
Beach House’s new album streamed in its entirety from NPR. Certainly a band which owes much to the McGarricles and the Wainwrights. Without a doubt the hottest place I have ever been was the Beach House show at Whartscape, inside of an old church in middle of the night with 500 other people in July in Baltimore with no air circulation.
RIP Kate McGarricle
I promise you that everyone, including my father and Martha Wainwright had tears in their eyes by the end of this performance. Without a doubt, no family is more talented. Dink’s Song aka Fare Thee Well from a. lanken on Vimeo.
Bury the Hatchet
This hopes to be an eloquent rant. First of all, I am pretty sure that this is not an axe, but a hatchet— its hard to tell as they give no dimensions nor specifications. Which is really leads to the underlying problem here. To start with, a story. I have a friend, G, who recently explained to me his problem with Cormac McCarthy’s The Road. He said he just couldn’t...
“Each day, Hilobrow.com pays tribute to one of our favorite high-, low-, no-, or hilobrow heroes on that person’s birthday” Somedays have some sort of intergalactic alignment creating amazing humans on the same day, like today, Susan Sontag and John Carpenter. Imagine throwing them a birthday tea party.

Does Invention Require Design?
Eric Small at GOOD writes, “At some point, it occurred to me that maybe designers and the rest of the world were not communicating on the same level. The design community had deemed form and function as the design. Whilst the rest of us held onto the belief that design is choosing the pattern for our curtains, the style of our jean pockets, or the white color of our iPods. Design was not...
