All around me are familiar faces / worn out places, worn out faces

last night

was awesome.

Thanks to those of you who gave me a memorable night. okay food, passable movie, great music, amazing people.

and about the movie - oh, it was better than Wolverine. But still, once special effects get so cheap to make that every summer movie contains such a huge dose of CHEESE factor that I can feel myself metaphorically gagging with the onslaught of cheese oozing from the plot holes of the movie, that is enough. I don't want to start laughing in the movie theater because some stunt was so absurd that the director saw fit to repeat it again, and again. Cars blowing up? That's cool. Cars blowing up because of some warped notion of physics and half-way believable special effects? Not cool, Terminator Salvation, not cool.

matching game

Match the fashion house to the editorial images below. Each depicts the Fall 2009 collection. From Vman, on which I have previously expressed delight.

Ralph Lauren Black Label
Calvin Klein
Louis Vuitton


Thanks to +joe. Check out the post for my favorites Dior Homme and Jil Sander (thanks to Kris Van Assche and Raf Simons).



1. Calvin Klein (Italo Zucchelli) 2. Louis Vuitton (Paul Helbers) 3. Ralph Lauren Black 4. Prada (Miuccia Prada)

#3 suprised the hell out of me. I don't even know the name(s?) of the Ralph Lauren in-house designers (and neither did +joe).


(It's not fashion. It's style.)

Why did I make this post? Because there are UGG boots on the "fashion" spread of my high school yearbook. I am SO glad to be out of here next year.

movies I want to see (looooong list)

I know, I know. Robert Pattinson.

But you know what, I find him oddly endearing. After all, he seems to be popping up in fashion magazines at an alarming rate.

However, it's Dali. And Lorca.

And apparently "there were all these Spanish electricians giggling to themselves" during the shooting of a sex scene. I do find Pattinson's responses to that interview (linked in the previous sentence) juvenile, but hey, I'll give the dude a break. Also, director Paul Morrison, who was nominated for a Best Foreign Language Oscar, says Pattinson has the ability and talent. Okay.

Although the 'stache does make me giggle:

And here is the (cheesy) trailer:


Alien invasion. Cars being blown up. Sorry Channing Tatum, but I'm going to take the sequel over the new franchise this time around.


Self-explanatory. Still waiting for the Pixar with a female lead, however.


Christian Bale makes another appearance. Oh wait, so does Channing Tatum. Damn. Wait. He plays "Pretty Boy Floyd." Maybe I'll be okay. (Well, who am I kidding. The dude used to model. I don't mind looking at him.) And hey, wait, did I forget to mention the dude who's on the poster?


I love this poster. It's so photoshopped. Also, it's no longer Nc-17? Officially an R.


Joshep G-L is SO HOT. Check. this. out:

You know me. I'm a sucker for those fashion magazine spreads. Those black and white Vman ones especially.

I stole the keys to the skies

We'll leave this place for the final time
No crying words, no goodbyes
Yes tonight we're burning all the tough times

This boy's in love [this town, this street, your friends, you'll never see this place again]
Love [you'll think about it now and then, you'll never see our face again]
