Spotted! Doctor Who

January 19, 2010

The TARDIS is spotted at about 1:48. The Doctor is in his 4th (?) incarnation in the video. I found the video while scouring Coachella’s lineup.

Song: The Sweetest Thing

Artist: Camera Obscura!

Yeah, I like them a lot.

*Side Note: The blog is starting up again. It’s not really going to be the same as it was before, but I’ve been liking the idea of a blog recently. Plus, I really, really like the name, so I figure I’ll still use it. Lastly, I’m not a huge fan of the old posts I wrote back in the day, so do yourself a favor and DON’T look at those. They’re really embarrassing. :)

I have just discovered the Sonia Rykiel 40th Anniversary collection, and it is amazing. I finally get Bryan Boy’s obsession with the designer. Feast your eyes on my favorite pictures from her 40th Anniversary bash.

Two for the price of one!!! Yah!!!

 

 

Now onto the Sonia/Designer Collaborations….

Happy Late Memorial Day!!!

Please don’t steal this drawing. It took a really, really long time to do. So, please, don’t steal it.

OTHER NOTES!!!!!!

Chester French and Coldplay both have free albums on their websites. Get them. Now.

NPR Live Concerts Podcast has free concert recordings from bands like the Ting Tings, She & Him, Bishop Allen, Ra Ra Riot, Death Cab for Cutie, among others. It’s better than the all songs considered podcast, at least in my opinion.  

Shakespeare Revisited, a BBC series, is amazing. It’s classic Shakespeare stories done in a modern setting. It’s definitely worth checking out.

Well, Toodles!! More drawings up soon.

Love,

Chicago, Among Other Things.

Was in Chicago this weekend. A recount of the day I spent there.

- Helped out with Night Ministry. Well, not really help out, but more listened to someone talk about Night Ministry, then go out and the streets of Chicago and see what it would be like to be homeless. Questions we pondered included where we would spend the night, get something to eat for $5 or less, and if we could go in a restaurant and get a glass of water. Very depressing, and it makes me even more thankful to have a rood over my head and be able to just sit down in a chair and blog about stuff while watching Pride and Prejudice.

- Ate Giobarnio’s pizza. Delish.

-Millenium Park!!!!!

Audrey Tautou’s Chanel No. 5 Commercial Is More Disturbing than Whimsy

May 6, 2009

I love Amelie. One of the best movies ever. However, this short film, (directed by the same dude who directed Amelie, as well as starring Ms. Audrey Tautou) is kinda disturbing. I love this imagery and picture composition, and he obviously can make a lovely shot. But honestly? I just don’t get the whole stalking thing. Kinda ridiculous, don’t ya think??

p1040719The picture above is from last Monday, when it was really blah outside. Horrible pictures. :)

p1040807There aren’t that many great magnolia pictures, because I didn’t find the flower focus button fast enough. Sad.

Sketches coming soon!!!

Love,
