Feeling burnt out from Fashion Week? Well here is a great way to top off the week,  Alison Goldfrapp is bringing her ethereal sounds to the states for a mini tour- I'll be going to the friday show at the ever so swanky Radio City. I have it on good authority that she puts on an amazing show, and the outfits should be interesting too.
I was cruising the Girl Wide Web looking for some new online stores, when I stumbled upon Vanessa Jean . She makes handmade purses, wallets, and bags out of...DUCT TAPE. Some of the items are super cute. Have to admit...I'm totally impressed!!! I have duct tape in my apartment at all times.
New Orleans has been dealt yet another blow this past week with Hurricane Gustav's visit to the Gulf Coast, but one of the best ways to help the city heal has always been contributing to its musicians. One of the most unique acts in the city, the New Orleans Bingo! Show, is visiting New York for three shows at Spiegelworld this week, and I can't think of a better setting to see this vaudeville/cabaret/carnival/lounge/performance art act. If you love old jazz, burlesque, theater, and of course, a good rousing game of bingo, you should be there.
Last night I watched the rerun of the 90210 premier and I have two questions: 1. Where the hell is Luke Perry, what are you doing with yourself that you don't want to relive your glory days in the hottest zip of the 90's? 2. That cute guy with the big teeth can just whisk dates all over California, so does that make him richer then Diddy ?   This isn't so much a question as a thought, the 16 year old that had the birthday party, Naomi, mad old face right? Totally in no way 16.
I've never heard of these kids, but this video is great! Brother sister duo from Australia. Dig it.
  VS. HBO's True Blood airs this Sunday, and if you are into vampires, get ready for alot of uber violent shenanigans and sexual tension between the main characters played by Anna Paquin and Stepen Moyer. I saw the first two episodes and did not fall immediately in love, but its fun and I think I need to watch a few more episodes to get the full effect. The story is based on a book by Charlaine Harris, 'Southern Vampire,' and takes place in New Orleans where a Japanese company has invented synthetic blood, rendering the vampires 'safe' since they dont have to feed on humans.
I just love John Stewart, and this is a great clip about the republican's hypocrisy.
Why did I just move to NYC? Portland, Oregon continuously surprises me as the place to be for hip and alternative design and music (Musicfest NW is going on there now). Portland-based company Queen Bee Creations just came out with this new line of bags made with sustainable fabrics. They also have some bags made from recycled materials. Everybody really is turning green these days, and I think that's glorious. -Maya the intern.
I really don't know how I feel about this. Kind of love it kind of scared of it. Genius regardless. They are from Nat-2 . For some reason I feel like this is something Kanye West would get behind.   The clear ones are insane, I've worn my share of clear shoes and I can tell you your toes are going to look like worms in a dirty fishbowl in no time.
I had to watch the Palin 'hockey mom' speech last night, and as much as I expected the usual Obama bashing that the republicans like to do, I was most struck by the creepy fanaticism of the crowd- all white, pasty (old) faces chanting 'Drill, baby drill' and the booing, and laughing at their own lame joke about how Obama was a 'community organizer'- seemed like a bunch of disrespectful frat boys. Actually it reminded me of that dream sequence in Rosemary's Baby when the devils are impregnating her- I wish I could find a clip of it. Scary.
