It’s Saturday after a long week of (re)sewing my first skirt and not blogging very much. I have a baby shower to go to soon and couldn’t sleep last night so I’m pretty tired. This morning I took advantage of this great idea, pictured above, as an excuse to not actually have to work to produce breakfast. I chose the orange flavored rolls and regret nothing.
In lieu of the blogging that would have happened if I were a little more on the ball than I am, these are a few random thoughts that were going to get their own posts this week.
- I’ve just discovered this website, Top Fashion Designers, and am getting seriously crazy about nice clothes. I’m starting to think I want to be a fashion designer when I grow up. The Alexander McQueen slide show is truly amazing- I never realized just how good he was until this! You have to watch it!
- The new Paste has finally been printed! I can’t wait to go get my copy! This article, posted on their website, is totally cool. You should read it! You should also go to Barnes and pick up a copy of the magazine yourself! A worthy investment of five bucks- they have a bunch of music tracks from fresh new artists that you can download free, and usually a write-up about each one in the mag- a feature I always enjoy. I love seeing what’s new in the music market, and they have a very diverse selection of good performers.
- I just saw the movie, Ed Wood by Tim Burton this past week, and I was honestly blown away. If you don’t know who Ed Wood is, he’s the director of that cinematic great Plan Nine From Outer Space! Highly heralded by multiple sources (none of which I feel like looking up and linking you to) as the worst movie ever produced, Plan Nine is a camp classic, almost starring Bella Lugosi. I have seen this movie several times and have laughed my heart out with each, but it’s not alone. Ed Wood directed a couple truly poor films, and until Tim Burton came along to tell his story, I never would have thought much about the guy. The fact is, Burton’s movie is amazing, moving and rich with pathos. I have no less desire to ridicule Ed Wood’s movies now, but I have gained a good deal of sympathy and good will toward him having watched this. One of the IMDB reviewers called this “Burton’s grand masterpiece.” I would have to agree. It may be my favorite Burton mvie yet.
