I dreamed a dream…

and it wasn’t Susan F-ing Boyle…
url-756607-1The first time I saw Metric was at SXSW a few years back. They played in a crowded smoke filled venue and the whole place stopped– it was like time stood still. They transcended the entire place to another time filled with beautiful sounds and harmonic vibes. Since then, they have completely blown up (as they should) and recently released their 4th full length album, Fantasies. Written by the badass and beautiful, Emily Haines, in a farm house in Seattle (rad!). Fantasies is a mix of electro rock and Haines magical voice. You really do feel like your in a dream…

imageskeatonanniehall2-241x300There are some things in life unmatched; for me it’s Woody Allen. All things Woody Allen. The poignant humor, the intellectual thought provoking plots, the styles, the extramartial affairs, the love stories and the characters played by some of the greats… Tony Roberts, Diane Keaton, Meryl Streep, Mia Farrow, Carrie Fisher, Dianne Wiest, Angelica Houston… should I go on? When I lived in NYC, I spent many weekends with Woody… watching his films, reading his books and even going to see him speak once at the Y… My weekend ritual consisted of walking over to Kim’s Video and renting at least 5 of his films at a time. I still revisit him now and again, although not as often as I would like. Recently I rented Manhattan, Hannah and Her Sisters and Crimes and Misdemeanors. I own 2 copies of Annie Hall one of which lives in my dvd player. So the point I am trying to make is… hmm.. well.. the point is… that life wouldn’t be life without Woody…

Well la-di-da…

Spray this!

May 6, 2009

They’ve been around but recently I have truly realized just how absolutely amazing they are. My latest obsession or rather addiction, Tan Towels. Before you go to bed lather your face and body with one and when you wake up you’re rocking Bo Derek… Much easier and cheaper then spraying… and much healthier then frying. If you wanna go for the gold- I recommend the Tan Towel Plus-uh huh! 350594
