I don’t like to re-post other blog photos, but I really like this photo taken over on Sea of Shoes

It’s freezing cold and waiting for the L, I’m too lazy to take my hands out of my pockets to get my ipod out and instead I let myself be amused by the 3 boys passing the time shooting shit. It’s mostly boring until they mention this little youtube gem. A method of opening a wine bottle with a shoe. I’m suddenly very absorbed in their conversation and I’m contemplating the logistics of that. It sounds pretty rough, but as he said, ‘for the kind of money I spend on wine, it doesn’t matter’.
If Charlotte Gainsbourg and I were ever to meet I’d def. invite her over for dinner. I make a pretty good roast chicken…
I’m watching ‘most viewed videos’ on weather.com and came across this one:

Amazing colours. And then there was a report about pets being struck by lightening and the lesson I learned was not give your pet a dumb name when you’re yelling for them to come inside. “Nooooodles, Nooooooodles!”
I was fishing around in my bag for my camera and was startled when some multi-legged beast ran out from underneath and headed straight for the couch. But even 30 legs were not fast enough for my two. I grabbed a glass and plonked it down on top of him and hoped that a quick death of asphyxiation would follow. I went about my business, taking pictures of my bags for my site, gingerly stepping around him as I clicked away. Wondering how long a centipede can last without fresh air, how big are his lungs, at what pace would he slow his breathing to outsmart me and just how long can I leave an upturned rocks glass on the floor without knocking it over.
Then I’m wondering, firstly why is it a him and not a her. Boats we refer to as a ‘she’, cars are ‘baby’ – bugs? Most definitely a He, kind of ugly – albeit fascinating – unwanted and could kill me when I’m not paying attention. Okay last observation not a fact, but I don’t have health insurance and random acts of illness fall on me from time to time. Boats and cars on the other hand are sleek, shiny, a luxury, and worth acquiring – unquestionably a She.
Secondly, why is my natural reaction to imprison it with the intent of killing it? They do actually eat roaches, but he doesn’t look anything close to a kitten so I’m forced to render him dead simply because of his looks? Yes, yes and yes again.
I don’t care that his nickname is Mustache Bug – yes, I looked it up on Wikipedia and had to cover up the portion of the screen that had his identifying portrait with a piece of cardboard. Allegedly Spring is the time they drop babies, and if he/she is packing it is in my best interests to end this before it gets all animal kingdom in here. Of course like pulling off a band-aid slowly, by putting him under glass I am forced to still take action. Leaving him there is not going to kill him hell, he’ll probably last for days like that,. I could scoop him up and throw him out the window, but a 10 foot free fall doesn’t seem so humane. I mean I’m not vegetarian or anything but if our roles were reversed I think I’d prefer a sharp blow to the back of the head than a prolonged torture.
Alright already, pass me my shoe.
This is the final drop over in my reid.damnit store for Winter. The bag originally designed for my mother is making one last appearance in brown and denim blue before being re-incarnated for the Spring/Summer!
After being fastidiously tidy as a child, staging different ‘looks’ in my room (a born merchandiser even from the age of 12) you can imagine my mothers confusion when I moved out and suddenly found it impossible to close my drawers. Whenever she visited she would always beg just to shut those drawers spilling out with socks and t-shirts.
I found this chest of drawers from OOOMS – two Dutch Designers with a great sense of humour. I think this would be the death of my mother, constantly not being able to have all the drawers flush would drive her crazy. Through what kind of ‘trickery’ I’m not sure, but the Rebellious Cabinet never fully closes. As you close one drawer another creeps ajar. Love it.
I can’t even think of just one thing to say about this video! My attention deficit friends, be sure to watch this video’s entirety. Magical costumes and dance routines that will have you as Number 1 Dancer amongst your friends, or your money back…
I have just discovered Pandora - I know, where have I been?? I’m in a Motown State of Mind right now. Loving this baby by Carl Carlton.
wish, dream or fantasy with VINCENT GALLO, ladies only
Have you ever watched a movie and fallen in love with one of the actors? The way they looked or a character they played? Afterwards you thought of them over and over. Daydreaming, imagining things, sexy things. When I was very young I was madly in love with Tuesday Weld and Charlotte Rampling. On my 14th birthday I went to see the film Rolling Thunder and had my biggest crush of all on the actress Linda Haynes. I wished and wished and wished everyday that I could meet all these girls. I thought of a lot of sexy things with Susan Blakely after seeing her in Lords of Flatbush. In my mind I could do with her anything I wanted to do. So believe me, I know and understand what it’s like to wish and dream about spending time with a movie star. Doing things that couples do. Couples in love. At least couples where the guy is hot and knows how to handle a chick.
I, Vincent Gallo, star of such classics as Buffalo 66 and The Brown Bunny have decided to make myself available to all women. All women who can afford me, that is. For the modest fee of $50,000 plus expenses, I can fulfill the wish, dream, or fantasy of any naturally born female. The fee covers one evening with Vincent Gallo. For those who wish to enjoy my company for a weekend, the fee is increased to a mere $100,000. Heavy set, older, red heads and even black chicks can have me if they can pay the bill. No real female will be refused. However, I highly frown upon any male having even the slightest momentary thought or wish that they could ever become my client. No way Jose. However, female couples of the lesbian persuasion can enjoy a Vincent Gallo evening together for $100,000. $200,000 buys the lesbos a weekend. A weekend that will have them second-guessing.
I am willing to travel worldwide to accommodate clients. However, travel days are billed at $50,000 per plus all premium flight fees. Scanning for STD’s is required as is bathing and grooming prior to our encounter. Detailed photos of potential clients also required prior. An extra fee for security to protect me is charged on top of the fantasy fee. Security fees will vary depending on the details of an encounter and how much security I will need.
Potential clients are advised to screen the controversial scene from The Brown Bunny to be sure for themselves that they can fully accommodate all of me. Clients who have doubt may want to test themselves with an unusually thick and large prosthetic prior to meeting me. You may be surprised just how much you can handle and how good it feels.
