Every Breath That Is In Your Lungs Is A Tiny Lil Gift To Me

yay!! spring 2010 couture is out & getting my heart pumping again:

daphne guinness?

i feel horrible for saying this, but i kinda agree w/ suzy menkes on the dior collection
"[F]or all his genius, Mr. Galliano refuses to click on the modern world’s reset button or drag his icons to a new place ... [I]t would be a fine thing if Mr. Galliano could just once make the starting point of Dior couture not fashion’s sweet memories but a clean sheet of paper on which he writes 2010."
while i do loooove his historical references i can see what she's saying. i see how all the other houses are moving forward & evolving. john even at his "weakest" still tops most of the others. sometimes i feel he's catering to some of the older, loyal clientele who can actually afford this shtuff.

i would love this givenchy gown, wouldn't i:

wow...i think i could pull this off, don't you? ha i wish...lara looks bitchen.

Giant Drag

the other night i got sucked into watching an infomercial selling some "greatest songs of the sixties" cd shiz. what fascinated me was seeing who actually sang all those songs you've grown up listening to but never really knew the name of the band, song, or what they looked liked. it's kinda funny cause a lot of the time i thought some of those tunes were sung by a black singer, but they were really just some skinny white dudes from england trying to be beatles. anywho, here's some of my faves & such & some stuff i haven't heard in awhile:

who knew the "wooly-booly" song was sang by aladdin?

i love this song:

who's up for an acid trip?

the lead singer looks like a dufus:

i think they used this one in a visa commercial, sellouts:

i forgot about this song. love it.

Been Spending Most Our Lives Livin' In A Hipster's Paradise

now i already know it doesn't get more hipster than lissy trullie covering a hot chip song, but i'm kinda digging this track right now. i like when girls sing with man voices.

Pretty Thang

perfect rainy day movie: how to steal a million. my fave scene is when audrey wears that black lace ensemble w/ the mask. it's so cliche' but she just really always got it right, & those eyes! it's kinda sad how she really didn't like the way she looked.

here's the dress today:
