Jane Fonda





Before she made aerobics videos, Jane Fonda was badass.

My Blog is Not Dead.

The powers that be have blocked me from blogging and blogs at work.

While my work ethic may be dead, my blog isn't.

Shoplifters of the World, Unite and Takeover!

Please, please, please... ignore the Spanish. Or not if you speak it.

I have been watching Smiths videos on all. morning. long. It's like an addiction, I know I shouldn't but I can't stop.

You know what would be fun? A Smiths/Moz karaoke night. I really want to make this happen.

Pour Your Body Out (7354 Cubic Meters)

7354 cubic meters of Pipilotti Rist is one of the most exciting things in my life right now (that and the couch that my roommate and I are getting today for our place, finally!). It's coming up so soon and I literally have a countdown for it. Twenty-five foot high moving images that Pipilotti created especially for the space at MoMA should be entirely captivating. Supposedly she's been running around the museum setting everything up and I hope that I get the opportunity to run into her and so I can go fan-girl on her.


Pour Your Body Out opens on November 19th. Get to MoMA on the 17th to share an evening with her. I will try and make everything happen so that I can be there, smiling ear-to-ear the entire time like a creep.

Parra for Arkitip

If I had more of it, I'd drop money on these items:

And I would buy an iPhone to go in that sleeve. Or an iTouch because I don't know if I want to jump on the iPhone wagon just yet. I'm too old school for such newfangled contraptions.

Friends, how many of us have them?

I'm one of those people that's way too hard on myself. When it comes to friends and friendships, I always feel like I fail, especially lately. Then, I saw that my good friend Mr. Zach Hates made this, and it made me so happy, it almost brought a tear to my eye.

Friends are better than: milkshakes and French fries, David Lynch movie marathons, the Mets winning, huge sales at Theory.

P.S. Love you, Zach!

Tracey Emin

I love her attitude. And, needless to say, her work.

Chanel Mobile Art

Zaha Hadid, one of my favorite architects, designed the container for Chanel Mobile Art, which has recently re-located to New York! Mr. Lagerfield + friends are paying homage to the quintessential quilted Chanel bag, you know, the one that dozens of people sport throughout the Manhattan grid (real and fake, alike).



Of course, the Wall Street Journal blogs about the opening of the Chanel Mobile Art, NYC and it's ability to provide a temporary market for local labor.

It's now open to the public at Rumsey Playfiend in Central Park. Admission is free.

Reunion Show

If I could organize a reunion show I would pick a double headliner with At the Drive-In/Fugazi. The opener would be Q and Not U.


It is imperative that I see the 'headliners' perform live before my time is up. I've essentially come to terms with the fact that I'll never see ATD-I live, a once painful realization, being that it's been at least eight years since their last album. Along with the fact that every 'side project' they've done interests me very little.

But let's talk about Fugazi. FUGAZI. My favorite fucking band of all fucking time. All members are still on amicable terms and are just pursuing other ventures, such as making babies and things of that nature. All are still involved in music and even collaborate with one another. I'm waiting for the day that they get back together, and in my heart of hearts I feel like it is bound to happen.

When it does, rest assured I will be there.

Au revoir les enfants...

I keep trying to write about how sensitively directed and incredible this movie is, but I'm coming up short. Instead I of trying to find words, let me suggest that you watch this movie as soon as possible.

Fire Walk With Me

We are amidst fall, my favorite season. Good for Netflix, cooking elaborate dinners and breaking out all of my favorite autumn jackets.

I happen to love David Lynch movies and just added the entire Twin Peaks television series to my Netflix queue.

And, just for fun!

That cow was NOT allowed to march in the Cow Parade. F**king fascists.

Freja Beha

I love Freja Beha's tattoos. I always joke that if I were to get many tattoos, they'd probably all be text and I'd be a human book.

this too shall pass

She has a few more, I believe eight in total, including Redemption on the inside of her elbow right underneath the joint, "this world tonight" on her right-hand wrist and three circles on her left wrist.

JR in Nouvelle York!

I was walking around the Lower East Side and noticed this amazing piece which covers (times a hundred) the Obey piece that used to be up:

I was fucking FLOORED by the enormity of this piece. Of course, none other than JR could be responsible for something so massive.

Irina Lazareanu

I really love Irina's style. I have been getting more into men's fashion and men's clothing for myself recently. My favorite outfit is a nice pair of fitted jeans, a white collared shirt and a blazer. I wear a suit to work everyday and have really been working on adapting my work wardrobe to my play wardrobe. Because Irina is so flat and skinny, she pulls off the menswear style so well.

Eske Kath

Eske Kath's artwork reminds me a little of Chiho Aoshima's work, only his colors are a little more concentrated. Both artists' oeuvres are slightly distributing. Kath's work really incorporates the effects of nature on our lives/his life in a profound way.

Tonight marks the inaugural opening of the LaViolaBank Gallery on the LES. Eske Kath, as well as a number of other extremely talented Scandinavian artists will be featuring their work. Too bad I forgot to bring my camera to work today, f**k.

Colette X Gap

I wish I could be happier about this but the fact that Colette has partnered with The Gap for their concept store on 54th Street and 5th Avenue makes me sad. I used to think Colette was the coolest store, but now, ehhhh... not so much.

It would be entirely different if Colette had partnered with a notoriously New York store. I'm thinking something like Canal Jeans or Yellow Rat Bastard (as mediocre at best examples) would have been more appropriate; engage a store that is specifically New York City and not a chain. However, I think because the Gap isn't doing so well financially, they are attempting to up their cool quotient (and yes, I think I'm cool because I just used the word quotient). This is due, in part, to their competition with European chains like Zara, where lines are constantly being updated, clothing is affordable, and the quality is good enough to last you through a couple of seasons. American chain stores let the same merchandise sit on shelves for seasons at a time. GAP, YOU ARE SO GUILTY OF THIS.


Why do we have to saturate the market with such commercial crap? I want my cool Colette back ASAP. But I must confess, even though Colette's Gap partnershp is disappointing, I do wish I wasn't so goddamn mothaf**kin' broke so I could buy that wonderful Longchamp gem of a bag.

Merci et au revoir.

I'm bored of cheap and cheerful.

Alison Mosshart aka VV of The Kills has caught my attention for many reasons:

1. Mad Steez;
2. I like The Kills and I like her voice;
3. She looks great always holding a cigarette (she's one of those women that makes smoking look so cool, I hate to say it but it's TRUE);
4. She loves Fugazi, "For years I only listened to Fugazi."
5. She went ON TOUR with Fugazi.

Alison Mosshart, it's safe to say I have a girl-crush on you. Please find me next time you are in New York City so we can go shopping and sing Fugazi lyrics all day long.

The Kills will be playing at the Music Hall of Williamsburg on October 3rd and October 4th. You can get tickets at You know I'll be there.

jusqu'ici tout va bien...

"C'est l'histoire d'un mec qui tombe d'un immeuble de cinquante étages au fur et à mesure de sa chute il se répète sans cesse pour se rassurer: jusqu'ici tout va bien, jusqu'ici tout va bien, jusqu'ici tout va bien... mais l'important, c'est pas la chute, c'est l'atterrissage."

My birthday is 9/24. You are welcome but not limited to buying me all of the above. MERCI!
