last minute jam

we tried to fit in a last minute practice session before the big show TONIGHT! as we were playing the dreaded storm descended down upon us and we shut off all the lights and littered the floor with candles. mix that with 2 bottles of wine and this is result.

as the crow flies east

i hope the lack of posts in the last week hasn't driven everyone away. i've been frantically searching for a new home, and that can drive anyone crazy. so on with the good news, we finally found a place, and lucky for us it's close to home. only 5 blocks east and, hello new house! yes we're leaving our beautiful loft which i've fallen so deeply in love with, and trading up(?) to a cozy little house on the corner of memory lane (for reals!).

leaving the loft means we absolutely need to get rid of the vast amount of growing nick-nacks that one can only accumulate by living beside a value village. over the next few weeks i may be posting some vintage finds on the site for your purchasing pleasure. so feel free to send me a message if you see anything that strikes your fancy.

return of the mac

i know these arn't recent, but i just happened to watch party monster for the first time a couple weeks ago, and it made wish that macaulay culkin would make a grand return to films. i know his family is sprinkled throughout hollywood, but there's nothing quite like the original prankster.

he just did this film which i linked above, i have no idea what it's about except that it was filmed entirely on an iphone and when i scrolled through it i saw him in a luigi costume, so it's gotta be something crazy. it also features appearances by pete doherty and devendra banhart. after a little research i found that the flick follows director green and his band as they head off on a surreal adventure which sees them transported into a super mario game in an avant garde fantasy, apparently fuelled by ketamine.

these photos were taken by none other than photographer to the stars, terry richardson, in 2007. can you believe he was 27! does keven mcallister ever age!?

superheavy - mick jagger's new super band

i don't even really know what to think about this song. superheavy is a new rock supergroup consisting of mick jagger, dave stewart, joss stone, damian marley, and a. r. rahman and this is their first single miracle worker. it definitely is different, probably not my cup of tea, but interesting to see the result when such great artists come together.

is this in bad taste? any winehouse

jason mecier has crafted this portrait of the late, great amy out of various pills. too soon?

and we all shine on

have you seen nowhere boy? it's a fantastic biopic about john lennon's young years (i'm all about the biopics lately) and his challenges growing up with an absent mother and his strict aunt. it showcases the early beatles years and you get to see the mischievous side of lennon we've all heard of.
