so far so goude

while checking out pics of grace jones (bc i love the way she looks), i decided to wikipedia turns out she had a kid (apollo) w/ french photographer jean paul goude who used her as a muse. while looking around to learn more about him i came across this cool "retrospective" of his work so wanted to share:

ps- not that it matters but i feel the need to clarify my google imaging of grace....i'm collecting pics for a personal project i'm doing w/ cool women. it started off as me wanting to play around in photoshop to do a andy wharhol type colored 4- square pic consisting of nina simone, kelis, frida kahlo & bettie page. (i'll prob still do that since that's my original idea) but i keep seeing cool images i want to put together into some sort of collage, grace jones' face &/or body being the latest. ok, great... glad we cleared that up.

now off to watch fritz the cat movie bc i have the shoes (yea vans)

yulia hair

yulia tymoshenko has the BEST hair amongst political leaders in the world...just putting it out there! Ukraine-1, rest of the world-0. here's a huffington post slideshow of her stylish numbers, enjoy!

dame dash speaks on it...

1st beans then jay now dame is speaking out about the intriguing, wish there was more detail on the who/whats/wheres of the past decade that made everyone fall out!

after watching this i actually like him. prob bc of his graying beard, he's gettnig older. hopefully wiser & more mature :) apparently he loves cam & jim jones (didn't even know they had strife, must look into that when i get home)!

video phone (remix)

soooooo after the MUCH hyped, secret shootings, media buzz the video for video phone remix is finally out. my initial thoughts: it's a beyonce show, she didn't share the limelight, spotlight, even outfit changes w/ gaga. i KNOW it's beyonce's song, but how are you going to have gaga in your video wearing 1 plain white leotard?? it's gaga! plus her gun is like 10 times smaller than b's!

ok maybe i'm being too harsh, so good stuff from the video...her outfits were great! not sure who designed them/who stylist was for video but they did great! (really like the lightening earrings) there were guys (me likes any video w/ cute guys as props). they did 1 of my fav dances, the snap and roll (simple yet effective)!

b is a totally awesome entertainer, but my ONLY prob w/ her is she makes songs for women, videos for men. i like when videos match up somewhat w/ song content. i've seen enough stomach and leotard legs from b for a lifetime...switch it up a bit in 2010 PLEASE!

hilarious snl clip!

it's from 2007, but it's still funny to me. if you get it you get, if not watch the degrassi clip of jimmy/drake then watch ending of 2nd season of oc, then watch this skit again :)

hide & seek (the imogen heap song where this is from) actually isn't that good. this part rocks though...the concept is cool though- all acapella w/ a harmonizer. i need to look up what the song even means bc lyrics are pretty dark

new artist: the moldy peaches

not new per se but new to me :)

forgot i wanted to download the juno soundtrack a looooong time ago...finally took a min to do it. while looking to see which song were on it came to a wikipedia page where it explained how the director of the movie asked the lead actress what type of music juno would listen to. she said moldy peaches. i knew of kimya dawson but didn't know she started out in a band.

according to their wikipedia page they're clasified as indie, but i like my term for them: folksy punkish (which wouldn't make since bc i keep reading they were a part of an "anti folk" movement). not sure what classifies folk, but to me it's something heavy with (acoustic) guitar, slow and story telling- which half of their songs are...whatever you call em they're great and i'm glad i found a new group :)
here's their super cute band site:

i want a weezer snuggie

awesome marketing... i now want a snuggie, but no not just any snuggie but a weezer snuggie :)

why oh why

how do blind people get dressed? are the dogs trained to pick out matching outfits too? where do homeless people get wigs from? why is the e in the dell logo so drunk and/or sleepy? why DO rabbits look so disapproving (great book)? why is red dwarf so good? why are some people so greedy that they'll lie, cheat, steal to get more money while the poor get poorer?...i have more but i'll go get to wok now

song o the day: why (jadakiss) for obvious reasons

so apparently it's national blog posting month so bloggers (whether amateur or official) have to blog at least once a day this month as not to be a COMPLETE failure in life :)

please note this is my nov 2nd post...i'm done!

song o the day: kept seeing hype on twitter about this video & i see why. it's not bad, like a grown up rap video... "have a baby by me baby be a millionaire" so catchy!
