Were All Mad Here

I'm excited to see what Tim Burton does with Alice In Wonderland. I'm not sure how I feel about 3D yet.

"I wonder if I've been changed in the night? Let me think. Was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different. But if I'm not the same, the next question is 'Who in the world am I?' Ah, that's the great puzzle!"

Things Come In Threes

I leave Alaska on October 3rd. Thats about a week. It breaks my heart, but I feel really ready to move on for now.

Vous êtes mon jouet

Im almost out of perfume. My all time favorite is Miss Dior Cherie. Not only that, but Sofia Coppola directed this commerical, and the background song is by Brigitte Bardot. Yup. So enjoy...

Moons and Junes and Ferris Walls

I really need this wall art from What is Blik . com!

It reminds me of Georges Méliès's silent film 'A Trip to the Moon', unfortunately most people only know Georges Méliès through The Smashing Pumpkin's video 'Tonight Tonight'. According to the all knowing wikipedia Georges Méliès " was a French filmmaker famous for leading many technical and narrative developments in the earliest cinema. He was very innovative in the use of special effects. He accidentally discovered the stop trick, or substitution, in 1896, and was one of the first filmmakers to use multiple exposures, time-lapse photography, dissolves, and hand-painted color in his films. Because of his ability to seemingly manipulate and transform reality with the cinematography, Méliès is sometimes referred to as the 'Cinemagician' ".

    60's Style Wedding Dresses

    60's style short weddings dresses are amazing (Sharon Tate and Roman Polanski/January 20, 1968). The dress was made of off-white taffeta and has blue velvet bows on the sleeves. I've been trying to figure out who made it with no such luck. She was absolutely beautiful.

    Bloody Sunday on a Friday

    I was reading about the 1905 Russian Revolution and I stubbled upon these political art pieces. To sum up a long story, it started on January 9th, 1905, when Tsar Nicholas II ordered trooops to fire on a peaceful procession of workers demonstrating in St. Petersburg, this later became known in Russian history as Bloody Sunday. This then unleashing a series of uprising, and strikes that set the stage for the Russian Revolution of 1917 and the Civil War that followed. There was a short collapse of censorship, where over 300 magazines were created and released, that was actually more that got out in Russia during the entire nineteenth century. Impressive. Most of them did not survive for very long before the censor caught up.

    Tonight at The Red Onion were hosting a 'speakeasy' night. With few clothes here in Alaska, this is the outfit I came up with. Please excuse my boyfriends messy hotel room of a home for the past six months. We're packing.

    Books and Dishes

    It’s taken me six months to finish a book. In reality, totally it only took me nearly two weeks, but I split that time over a six months period. I’ve been busy. It was a very lively summer. You can also count the book ‘Good Time Girls’ I read for recent job exploration, and I’ve almost finished the audio book ‘The Time Traveler’s Wife’. Which I hear this is about to be released as a movie? I miss the outside world. Anyways, I just finished 'We the Living'. I adore Ayn Rand.

    There is only one thing that matters and that we'll remember. The rest doesn't matter. I don't care what life is to be nor what it does to us. But it won't break us. Neither you nor me. That's our only weapon. That's the only banner we can hold against all those others around us. That's all we have to know about the future.

    I just ordered a few books on Thailand, Cambodia, and Laos, and ‘Canoes Trails of the Deep South’ for Buck. I also ordered the audio book‘Anthem’ and am going pick up ‘The Romantic Manifesto’. Here we go objectivism.

    I still really want fire king jadite dishes. I suppose I need a kitchen first? Alas, that may be an issue. But window shopping via the internet screen is always enjoyable. What did we do before the internet? Lets pin a boutonniere to your coat and really window shop...
