Aw Brooklyn, Brooklyn take me in

It's been a while.  A long while. Massive compensation post will now ensue. Get ready... 

Eat. Pray. Love. in movie form. I haven't seen it, but I am dying to. Julia Roberts and James Franco and Javier Bardem. Javier Bardem appears to me to be the essence of man. Have you seen Vicky Christina Barcelona? He's also in that, in an amazing way.

To start your weekend off right, if anyone ever checks this still.. here are some posts from around the web that have caught my eye.

Yummy looking chocolate pavlovas

Aaaaaand some pictures I took today at Brooklyn Flea Market on Lafayette btw Clermont and Vanderbilt.

Mos Chef

I am in Brooklyn now. Living here. All day, all the time. The first day I was here, Pratt (my school, as of May 1st, 2010) had a "bloc party" for the incoming freshman -aka me- and all us crazy artsy fartsy kids were dancing and jumping around talking about how rocking it is that we're in Brooklyn, finally. And I got Manolos!!!!! They're leopard flats. 

Also, I've been laughing at this video of a remix of the Huntsville Home Intruder/Rapist Story.

Street Style from FW

I waited too long to post these and now fashion week was over a month ago. I'm so out of the loop. But whatevs. The pics are still awesome. These are only my favorites.

Remember Me

I went to the movies yesterday with my good friend M to see Remember Me. Probably widely known for starring Rob Pattinson, the film was so sad. I cried. You might not expect it from the preview but half the people walking out of the theater with us were wiping away tears. Other than that, I liked all the poetic-Ghandi-philosophy references and the characters.

Here's the trailer:

"If you could hear me, I would say that our finger prints don't fade from the lives we've touched."

Kid Cudi

Kid Cudi, new favorite to rock out to. Check it. Now.{Kid Cudi}
both pics circa cobrasnake

people told me slow my road
I'm screaming out fuck that

Imma do just what I want
lookin’ ahead no turnin’ back

if I fall, if I die, know I lived it to the fullest
if I fall, if I die, know I lived and missed some bullets

I'm on the pursuit of happiness and
I know everything that shine ain't always gonna be gold
I'll be fine once I get it, I'll be good.

The return

Okay, so we haven't written much lately. I'm not going to make excuses to the vast expanse of negative space that sums up the world wide web. But at least I'm back. For a little-- who knows.

I needed a place to say something. I don't really know who to talk about it with.. guidance counselor or just.. whatever. I feel like my parents are going to force me to go to the less-expensive school. I know I should be grateful that I don't have to pay tuition by myself, that I have awesome parents who make a decent living and can afford to put me through school. And, don't get me wrong, I am. Completely. I love them for everything. But the thing is, they don't want to. I feel like they resent me for it.
Can you imagine that guilt trip? Like everyday..? So what do I do. Decide to go to the school that they want me to go to because it's what like a bunch less expensive? Why did I even bother killing myself over my RISD application if they second guess everything about the school and are crazy reluctant to even allow me to consider it. At dinner-yes I still have dinner with my parents every night- my dad says, " You know, when I was your age (about 40 years ago) tuition was the same as what your textbooks will cost." Are you serious? What does he want me to do about it? Not go to college? Not chase dreams?

I just don't want to settle for the perfectly fine liberal arts college or even the state school where my friends will be when I have the opportunity to go somewhere different. I know I'm missing a ton of things here, and I might just be blinded by everything and how it seems as if it all is flying past me but I don't want to look back and think, "What if I had gone there instead and not passed up the chance to pay back debt for the next ten years?"

Next time I write, it won't be so terribly selfish and ranting.
Expect more of our usual in the future. At least from me.

Rain __ Shel Silverstein

I opened my eyes
And looked up at the rain,
And it dripped in my head
And flowed into my brain,
And all that I hear as I lie in my bed
Is the slishity-slosh of the rain in my head.

I step very softly,
I walk very slow,
I can't do a handstand--
I might overflow,
So pardon the wild crazy thing I just said--
I'm just not the same since there's rain in my head.

A Bleak Weds

Things I'm loving this week:

1. Listening to the new Spoon cd on NPR

2. Perusing Brian Ferry's blog and pondering the amazingness of his photography

3. A Perfect World Highly Hydrating body lotion with White Tea from Origins

4. This picture from Oskar Cortez's Flickr photostream

5. A completely rad idea for bike chalk.

6. An interesting article
on the positives of veganism and livestock's influence on the doily that is our ozone.

7. And lastly, some Emmerson who I am sort-of in love with right now:

Tell them, dear, that if eyes were made for seeing,
Then Beauty is its own excuse for being:
Why thou wert there, O rival of the rose!
I never thought to ask, I never knew:
But, in my simple ignorance, suppose
The self-same Power that brought me there brought you.

Road trip

The Pendleton meets Opening Ceremony collection makes me want to take a road trip to the grand canyon or something. In a convertible. With a Navajo inspired motocross jacket. And awesome shades. Rocking out to Chew Lips.

Koolaid Cool

I've gone an done it again. I'm back into knitting all the time. I'm on my third cowl of the year and I'm so excited to wear it. The yarn for this one is gorgeous. Just so perfect. I can't stop staring at it. and touching it. But when I was scrolling through a blog that I had been led to from this other blog (wow I spend to much time with blogs), I saw this. Kool-aid dyeing. How cool, right? So I did a little google-ing and found a recipe for disaster on knitty, the knitters playground of ideas and a go-to how-to warehouse. I cannot wait to do this. I might not stop at yarn (it says you can kool-aid dye human hair?! whaat?).
