The New Pornographers - "Crash Years"

I saw The New Pornographers last night, at the Trocadero Theatre in Philadelphia. The nine people band  was filled with amazing musicians. My favorite had to be,Kathryn Calder,who played the keyboard, piano,and also sandg. Her voice was beautiful and she just looks like such a sweet person. There was some serious drama on stage last night. Dan Bejar who played the vox, electric guitar, acoustic, piano, vibraphone, percussion, and also sings vocals kept leaving the concert. I don't know if he was drunk or sick or what but it was weird and extremely rude. I have to say when he would come back it mattered because the sound changed for the better. Also the famous,Neko Case,was upset about her microphone for the first five songs. I don't know what was wrong with the microphone, but I though she sounded great. Her voice is so powerful. Either way it was a good show and they made the best out of Dan leaving and coming back.

Away We Go - You Got Lucky, Sister Clip

Happy Father's Day!
I watched Away We Go earlier today. It was such a real depiction of how parents must feel before having a child, and also real geniune love. Check out the movie. This clip made me laugh out loud, and still does, everytime I watch it. It also remindes me of my dad because I could see him doing this. Happy Fathers Day Dad you goofball!

Sigur Ros - Glósóli

Iceland. It looks like paradise. So clean and pure. I want to go there someday. Go to one of the famous spas. Especially today after a night of almost no sleep. Sigur Ros, and the new band Jonsi are just beautiful. Really if I would have to describe their sound it would be beauty.

My debate with Miss Rand

Does anyone ever feel like there is so much great information out there? So much you just want to know it all. Learn everything. art, music, movies, fashion, politics, whatever. I am spending most of my free time trying to learn anything I can. I watch CNN, I buy the newpaper, I read the New York times in my free time, I buy cds, and records ( if I can afford them) read books, go to concerts... study the simple things, and my favorite subject is people.

I am reading The Fountainhead right now. I have actually been reading it, off and on for about a year. I pick it up, put it back down, read something else then come back to it. It's a great story but I donno. Ayn Rand believes that some people are just better than others. They have specific talents that raise them to the top and will inevitably succeed.Maybe this is true. If it is I am definity not one of those people. I have a hard time with the common sense easy things others do with ease. Reading this I think about that. Am I destined to fail? If I had the chance to debate with Ayn I believe everyone has some special unique talent. That if they find it, and ultilize it then anyone can succed. If she asked me what mine was well I would tell her I have no idea thats why I am waitressing.

Either way The Fountainhead is a great story. I am really enjoying reading it.

Am I mad? Afraid so....but all the best people are

Hi it's 5:03 am and I just haven't found the need to sleep yet. I stayed up to watch the Tim Burton verison of Alice in Wonderland for the second time. If any of you reading haven't seen it run don't walk to the video store, on demand, netflicks, red box, whatever and pick it up. Lewis Carrol is a genius. Drugs? No Drugs? I really don't care. When an author can say something by coming up with a story about something else. It's genius. Brillant. I adore and envy those writers. Vonnegut, Ionesco, and Pirandello are a few others that I have seen do this. I could be wrong but my interpretation of his story is to poke fun at reality, and how silly it really is. Why we do the things we do for no other reason other then to impress others. You could say fashion is just that. A reason to impress others. I never looked at it that way. Or maybe I did sometimes if were being honest, but at the end of the day I don't.
I think fashion to me is a way to express the person in you. What you wear says a lot about you.
I try very hard not to judge what others wear. Instead I smile because they love it.
Me? what do my clothes say?
well I'm messy its very hard for me to keep white clean...
I care about what I wear.
I care about where I buy it ( not labels anymore but instead where it's from)
Im girly but not in an obvious sense.
I love shoes
I like colors but lately I have been drawn towards black. Weird since it's the summer.
I like to stand out, but then hate when others stare at me.
I donno.
This post is random and weird. I guess watching a little alice I'm feeling confident to be me and nothing else plus I am probably delirious.

Lee Miller bathes in Hitler's Bathtub

Lee Miller was a famous photographer during the second world war. Not to mention she was a beautiful impowered women. This photograph was taken by David Sherman in 1945 for life's vogue. Hilter had just committed sucide. I don't think I need to say anymore. The picture speaks for itself


I first discovered cocorosie about year ago when I was studying in Rome. I understand these girls. I understand their lyrics. I can relate to them. I don't even really know how but I do. It's personal. Whenever I introduce this band to anyone it's like opening my diary, it's uncomfortable, and scary. This video imparticular really stood out to me. I am in the inbetween in my life. I don't know where I am going or what I am doing. I am going from a dependent girl to an independent women. It's confusing, ambiguoush, just like to video. Enjoy!

David La Chapelle

I discovered David La Chapelle about a year ago. I was bored and looking through my boyfriends bookshelves. I found a compilation of his works. A couple months later I had the oppurtunity to vist one of his art exhibits that was showing in Paris. The way he creates a mix of dreams and reality fascinates me.
