is anything important, no, i dont know…


ive got a serious obsession with Ariel Pink going on…i literally cant stop listening to this song. it has surpassed Kate Bush’s “Hounds of Love” in my itunes play count….
but yeah, his new album “Before Today” is floating around out there on the internet. id say a bit more solid and produced than his other albums, and totally has a Hall and Oates vibe.
but this obsession…has something to do with that hair of his. if i were a boy, i would have the longest california summer z-boy hair imaginable. some Bowie/androgyny dichotomy left over from highschool makes me want pixie cuts on ladies and devil-may-care length on fellas. an idea discussed further in a previous post of mine….
which i just realized!!! is from a year ago…i missed my anniversary! my first post was march 09!

…………………………………………………………

another anniversary this year is that of “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure”, which is 25 years old this August. as old as me.
i have always loved him.

more about “Queen of The Sun Teaser Clip“, posted with vodpod


so, elle was working at the nashville film fest this past month and i got to see “Queen of the Sun” with her. it was poetic and beautiful, shot in france and new zealand and…portland…
the story is “a piercing examination of the global bee crisis seen through the eyes of beekeepers, scientists, farmers, and philosophers”. while the film talked about the problems and solutions with “renewing a culture in balance with nature”, it didnt cast any entity as a villain necessarily. the film discussed our whole culture’s
remiss behavior towards bees. we have a responsibility to create a safe habitat for bees and our development, pesticides and mono-agriculture have made it nearly impossible for them to be a successful species.
anyway, its a very interesting topic and a serious problem. elle and i have been dreaming of a hive in the back yard…

and i also saw this! Nishimura’s vampire girl vs frankenstein girl! wild wild wild! a couple people left the theatre during the obscenely bloody opening scene. think, japanese director referencing quentin tarrantino as he references a different japanese director…gore upon gore.

and also i made a pie! and i took a terrible picture of it!
strawberry rhubarb in honor of the coming summer…
although with all the cinnamon, i always think straw/barb pie tastes like christmas

blog post number 94: in which i mostly obsess about my hair.
but first things first…i got some new dance moves for the summah………

ugh, brigitte bardot…you are why my hair is long…(also look at that coloring, shes all pink, gold and black)….
sadly, once it got to length, my hair could not be made into sexy bedtime ringlets like hers without a lot of persuasion…i get more of the pin straight jane birkin/heavy bangs look….which is not bad…

i dunno, i think i wanna cut it all off. perhaps just to spite all the time i put into it….and also its only april, but the sweat is already killing me….length = heat!…

anyway, the other night we watched Class of 1984, which ben remembered watching on ABC as the daytime movie special when he was a kid….its this over the top horror film about punk gangs in high school. its trying REALLY hard to be Clockwork Orange (theres a scene where the main punk is whistling a cheery tune as he rapes this woman)…its ridiculous, and takes a bizarre revenge twist. i love when hollywood takes a crack at the teen scene.
and then Canadian band Teenage Head make a guest appearance as the punk pied pipers of teen violence…


and BABY micheal j. fox is in it…
and that would be the token punk chick, Patsy, licking his face. she had my eye the entire film…shes a summer influence…

yes, thats a shoelace tied underneath her bangs, marilyn monroe tank, short shorts, geometric leather, driving gloves and coca cola….and here: an
outrageous cave-lady/ruffled lizard leather outfit complete with cicciolina eyebrows….
and check the bangs….super tuff…i might have to go for the pink wash dye job…

and so, rather than cutting off all my hair, im settling for 1984 bangs/j.lo punk…note the unicorn glitter tattoo…SASSITUDE….

obsess…obsess…obsess…obsess…obsess…obsess…obsess…obsess…
here are some bonus pics of previously mentioned Cicciolina ( Miss. ilona Staller, Italian politician, porn star and former wife of jeff koons)

“While in office, before the outset of the Gulf War she offered to have sex with Saddam Hussein if he would release his foreign hostages…in April 2006 she made the same offer to Osama bin Laden.”
bad ass bitch….
