thanksgiving

First pictures of San Carlos. Mine aren't developed yet, so I borrowed my favorites from my friends' pictures.




























silly 80s


My bf showed me this video yesterday. He LOVES the 80s and even though I don't, I still kind of dig this video.

On another note, this is my 100th post. Kind of exciting.

color me...

Back to school and finals and homework. Luckily I have a pretty easy semester, but I still thought I'd still cheer myself up with these colored pencil rings by Maria Christina Bellucci.

down in mexico

Off to one of my favorite places in the world for a week of Thanksgiving in San Carlos.


combo


COMBO a collaborative animation by Blu and David Ellis (2 times loop) from blu on Vimeo.
Very very cool.

michigan?

My new favorite for blogger inspiration. I'm not sure what I like best, her wonderful hair, her wonderful doggy (who reminds me of my brother's malamute/wolfy), or that she might like bargains even more than I do.






Her blog is Lions, Tigers and Fashion O My!

obsessed


I am obsessed with the braids at the Alexander Wang SS 10 show. I've been trying to grow my hair out, but since I have had it very short for a long time, its taking quite a while. I am in love with these braids and tried to imitate this look a couple days ago, but as my hair only goes a little ways past my shoulders, you can imagine the result was kind of pitiful.







Also love those neutral dresses.

we live underground

This is one of my favorite songs of all time. I was watching that silly Disney movie Robots a while back (yes I enjoy animated movies. A lot.) and this song is in one of the scenes, I was very excited.

misdemeanor

A little flashback. I think this video is so cool for a mainstream one. It's weird. The main reasons I think I dig it are that she doesn't even try to be the typical female artist, and because in that black blobby suit she looks like the evil guy from The Nightmare Before Christmas. Can't remember his name.

tallboy

Hilarious. I love the parts where Eva Mendes and the other girl look like a leaf blower is pointed right at them. Also the slushie throwing, Alia Shawkat, slow mo everything, and of course Har Mar's ridiculous hair.

why the u of a sucks

Gee lets think about this.
1) They have laid off tons of teachers recently.
2) They have asked the other ones to teach more classes with less pay.
3) The electric bill at the U of A is in the millions each month. Arizona has more sun than we need but hardly anyone takes advantage of solar paneling. (The U of A did actually cover one of their parking garages with solar panels this semester but this gets in the way of my rant. Also, it's just one garage. Hopefully with the money they save they can tile more roofs with solar panels.)
4) I like making lists.
5) They told me this semester that all the classes for my major and my minor are full so I can only take electives next year that won't even count toward my degree. My scholarship only lasts four years and they are making me take a bull shit semester.
6) The classes I need to take are full because they keep letting in students even though there is no room.
7) The leftover teachers are pissed because they have to teach huge classes.
8) There is a class taught in Centennial Hall where performances are usually held. My friend's dad teaches it, I thinks it's intro to Oceanography or something. At any rate there are 1200 students in the class. Yes, 1200.
9) All the bike racks are always full and campus is ridiculously crowded.
10) I bump into at least one person a day who is walking in the bike lane because apparently they can't see the lines and symbols of bikes painted on the ground.
11) Half the students are in sororities or fraternities, so the campus is basically a big cloning facility.
12) Big classes take attendance with these horrible 'clickers' that you use to enter answers to questions during the lecture. In my parents' day it was your choice whether or not you went to class and I think it should still be that way.

I would keep going but I'm just getting pissed. But I don't want to be angry so I'll just leave you with this:

Going to the moon brb! Because you can do anything when you grow up. Ha.

the new madonna

Well in spite of trying to avoid mainstream music and shit, I have fallen for the lovely Lady Gaga. Good god she's nuts, just look at her new video (in which she wears Alexander McQueen!).

My second favorite video of hers is Dirty Rich, something something, I'm not sure what it's called. In case you weren't sure, I don't really listen to her music which I don't think is anything special in and of itself (that's a weird expression) even though it is catchy. Her videos though, are another thing altogether. The ridiculousness, the fashion, the Alexander McQueen! I love it.

Also I like her attitude. Apparently she learned to play the piano at four and wrote her first piano ballad at 13, so there's actually some talent there, as well as great taste in fashion ('great' is relative, maybe ridiculously awesome is a better way to put it).
I also love her because of this: "My grandmother is basically blind, but she can make out the lighter parts, like my skin and hair. She says, "I can see you, because you have no pants on." So I'll continue to wear no pants so that my grandma can see me".
And this: "I love Dolce & Gabbana. I love Versace. I love the crazy, more eccentric stuff. I can't pay my rent, but I'm f---ing gorgeous". I can commiserate, except that I make much much less money than she does and look much much less fabulous, but ah well.


In case you were wondering, yes I am a bit tipsy. I may or may not admit my love for Lady Gaga while sober, but I got a bottle of wine as a tip for the last wedding I catered, because apparently that's what happens at catering. I like it.

late afternoon

Some new blogger inspiration.



So I wore some thigh high socks the other day and loved them until my boyfriend said he didn't like them. Well too bad they're going back on after seeing this.



Look at her amazing jewelry. One of those rings is a mini watch and the other is a deer skull (left hand).






Oo I love her and her blog, which you can read here.

I love this editorial from Vogue UK, it reminds me of The Virgin Suicides.
