Current Obsessions I

First a quick update of my week. . . This week has been pretty crazy, crazier than most others anyway. Monday night was fun until oh about two in the morning. . . then I had a little encounter with a State Highway patrol officer. He was very nice, and let me go (thank god, and thank you whoever you are officer) but I still felt like an idiot when I was calling people from the police station in the middle of the night asking them to pick me up (sorry mom and thanks again Alex). That was just the start of it all. Doctors was Tuesday, I'm sick. Sick enough for two anti-biotic's apparently but whatever I am feeling a little better. Wednesday we were in BG, that was actually a pretty quiet night. Thursday night. . . well Thursday night I had a little altercation and I'm pretty sure my fucking hand is broken. For real. My shits so swollen and blue, and it hurts like a mother fucker. I'm also out of pain killers until I make to the doctors/pharmacy again, so if anyone knows a good street pharmacist that could help me out in the mean time. . . (I kid). I can't write, I can't type (with my right hand), I can't blow dry my hair by myself, etc. I feel like a cripple and that makes me sad. On a good note I paid over $200 in bills this week! That is very good if you know me, ha.

gin Anyway, aside from all the dramz I've been enjoying quite a few things lately. Mainly Gin, the super cute and talented singer/song writer from New Zealand. I knew I was going to heart her the moment I heard her song "Under My Skin". Her myspace page describes her voice and style like so. . . "Vocally she runs from Macy Gray to Blondie to Edith Piaf. Musically she moves between Feist and Broken Social Scene to Neil Young and Fiona Apple, while lyrically she moves from sorrow to sunshine. " It really was love at first listen. I want her EP, it only has five songs and I've only been able to find two to download. I am going to buy it, I love every song so far. "These Roses" and "Hallelujah" are my favorites, "Hallelujah" actually mad me cry, it's very a pretty/sad song about her losing her father to cancer. Anyway, she is worth checking out - I think she'll be very successful one day.


The is one of my favorite websites, I love looking at all the apartments and houses all of which are decorated very modern, very cool. A current favorite is a designer by the name of Chase Cohl (click the image to the right to see more images of her NYC Soho apartment), I absolutely love her style. I totally dig the James Dean poster and all the feathers/animal print, it's all very me. The big lips above her bed, as well as outside give me a vibe of Betsey Johnson (one of my absolute favorite designers). The entire site is worth a check out.


People are probably sick of hearing me talk about Bianca Casady, but I don't even care. I love her. What I love almost as much as her is her art, it is so unique and interesting. This one to the left is meant to hang sideways for some reason, I don't have any clue what she meant by it but I like it. There are many more, non drug related ones. Maybe you'd like? Click the image to the left to check out some more. I'm sure her artwork ranges from the mid $100's to $1,000's but I really would love a piece of it. Particularly a native American 'hood' piece, or an animal. . . you just need to look at the yourself to have any idea what I'm talking about I think! The picture to the left links to her website.

Alexander McQueen bags = major lust.mcqueen1
I'm beyond lusting over one of these bags and there are so many perfect ones! I love this black and gray one. I didn't see one like it at the Alexander McQueen boutique in Las Vegas. I did see a somewhat similar one in navy, both from his Autum 08' collection. Image links to his 'womens bags' part of the site. I also really heart the union jack clutch with skull clip, so cute. I love the little toy soldiers and airplanes on these bags, you might recognize them from the bag I posted in my Las Vegas post a few weeks ago. There are many, many more bags that don't have any knick-nacks on them but are equally as amazing. The metallic, almost rust-ish, purple colored ones are another favorite of mine! If I had two grand for a bag, I'd be very tempted by this collection.

There are so more things I planned on adding, and I will in a later post but this took me like an hour to type out being only to do so with my left hand. . . :)
