451 and counting

i burn bookson cool mornings
to keep warm

flames lick the pages &
though the carcinogens
in the ink and your words
will probably kill me

i am pleased
the trees, folded
and bound to
your will and whim,
finally have their say

in smoke signals
climbing on the breeze
into the blue sky.

Written by my friend Brian Miller at Waystation One. I just had to make a drawing. http://

Friday Night Lights Auction

Sad to see Friday Night Lights wrapping up?  Sure, the series finale may be this year, but you can try to hold onto the show forever by heading over to NBC Universal's FNL auction and placing a bid on Tim Riggins' sweatshirt or Matt Saracen's hoodie or Coach Taylor's play book.  The auction is being hosted by ebay and it looks like there's already been quite a few bids placed already.  Don't miss out on your chance to own a piece of FNL history (or, maybe you just want to be able to sleep with Tim Riggins' sweatshirt every night).

Is 39 too Old to Wear a Mini? Yes!

I'm sorry, but I don't care how amazing you look, there IS an age limit on mini skirts and dresses.  Cam looks amazing for 39 (well, from the neck down anyway, and aside from the douchebag that's usually attached to her arm), but seriously, ENOUGH with the frickin mini skirts and dresses (especially ones that are tooooo tight!)!  Cripes, you're almost 40!  Let go of your 20s and move on.

Thank You, Beastie Boys

First: love love love Elijah Wood in this video (and can't wait to see him in the FX series, Wilfred, coming in June).  Second: the Beastie's are still amazeballs cool, even after 25 years.

A New Way to Say Hello

Apparently this is the new way to greet friends, family and strangers in L.A.  Thanks, Nicole Scherzinger, for always keeping things exciting.

Taylor Kitsch at NYC Premiere of Bang Bang Club

Taylor Kitsch and Ryan Phillippe brought the hotness to NYC on April 21st when they attended the NYC premiere of their latest film, Bang Bang Club.  I have no idea what the film is about, but with a title like that, I can only guess that this may be their first professional porn film.  And if so, when the frick does it open in theaters?!

This is mah job

I talk to  people who really act like this. Every day. Kittehs are much cuter though.

A Swoon-worthy Outdoor Movie Theater

I want this.  I want this right.  Now.  I absolutely LOVE this.  If I only had the outdoor space...and a ton of money.  Thank you, Pottery Barn, for the great idea.  Now I just need to buy a new house with a bigger yard and get a new job that pays me a LOT more than what I currently make.

We'll Always Have Paris

Haven't done a new background in a while, so here ya go:

Sketchbook 2012

I just signed up for the new Sketchbook Project for 2012!
I had so much fun with the last one, I thought it would be good for me to participate again. Plus this time I will have twice the time to do my drawings (maybe three times as much!) so I should be able to include more artwork. I'm thinking I may have some new contests as well, for ideas and so on.

The theme I picked this time is "Fill me

I don't know how I didn't know about this before now, but I just discovered, a shoes and accessories mega store of amazingess.  Love these Seychelles Eye to Eye wedge for a $110:
And, I'm not really a fan of Crocs (those damn clogs should be outlawed), so I was completely shocked when I saw that these little cuties are Crocs.  Easy to slip on to run weekend errands, walk the dog, or work in the garden.  And only $35!

This Kate Spade High Tide medium flat cosmetic bag is perfect for, yes, cosmetics, but what an adorable clutch for an afternoon lunch with the girls, or a perfect spot to store your iPhone, earbuds, and weekly planner in your bag:

There is a lot to look at and the possibilities are, well, Endless!

Man and Woman's Best Friend

Since Alf and I got engaged on Christmas Day, I've been spending a lot of time on wedding blogs. A. Lot. I've become a little obsessed. And I'm having a blast. Anyway, I stumbled on this picture and had to share. How adorable are these two?!

Did You Know?

Did you know that gravity is weaker in North America than it is in Europe, East Asia, Australia, and North Africa?  Well, I didn't.  Apparently it's because Earth is not a perfect sphere, and its interior mass is not evenly distributed. There are slight variations of gravitational pull depending on where on Earth’s surface you are.

In fact, you can now check to see which points on the Earth’s surface have the strongest and weakest gravitational pulls with a “gravity map”, available at The map is a 3-dimensional model of the earth that represents the amount of gravitational pull on a specific point on the Earth as its altitude. It uses data compiled from the Gravity Field and Steady-State Ocean Circulation Explorer (GOCE).

As my friend Miley Cyrus always says, "that's pretty cool!"

Don't delay, this is a really cool project and a great way to get your work published and out there.

Say Hello to my Little Friend

via lolcats at i can has cheeseburger.

made me laugh my ass off today!

Off the Beaten Path

My fiance and I are getting married this September but we're waiting until next year to embark on a honeymoon (honestly, I don't know how people plan their wedding AND their honeymoon to happen one after the other).  I've just started poking around online to plan the ideal trip and I have to say, what I originally thought would be an easy decision (um, Italy is my favorite place on Earth, so that was an obvious choice), is turning out to be rather difficult!  There are so many places that I still have yet to discover, and there are so many amazing honeymoon destitations out there - how do you choose? 

I stumbled upon a posting on Grey Likes Weddings and immediately fell in love, and not just for a honeymoon but for a typical vacation getaway.  Rent (well, more like try to find!) a vintage airstream trailer and travel around the country, stopping wherever the hell you please and doing whatever the hell you want for a few weeks.  It doesn't necessarily sound exotic, but the pictures have me wanting to book it right now.

Blue Chameleons - in Africa, Madagascar

Chameleons (family Chamaeleonidae) are a distinctive and highly specialized clade of lizards. They are distinguished by their parrot-like zygodactylous feet, their separately mobile and stereoscopic eyes, their very long, highly modified, and rapidly extrudable tongues, their swaying gait, the possession by many of a prehensile tail, crests or horns on their distinctively shaped heads, and the ability of some to change color. Uniquely adapted for climbing and visual hunting, the approximately 160 species of chameleon range from Africa, Madagascar, Spain and Portugal, across south Asia, to Sri Lanka, have been introduced to Hawaii, California and Florida, and are found in warm habitats that vary from rain forest to desert conditions.

It's Britney vs. Britney!

Pop Dust has put together a nearly three minute clip of a dance off between the old Brit vs. the new Brit.  Hmmm, I think it's fairly obvious who the winner is.

He Ain't No Lloyd Christmas

Jim Carrey is sporting a new do, which seems like an odd choice for the 49 year old.  Or maybe it's the glasses that I'm having a hard time with.  He looks like he's trying to be Pink's dad.  Or maybe he and Pete Wentz are hanging out?

This Sounds Like a Terrible Idea

Word on the street today is that Victoria Beckham wants to name her unborn daughter Santa after Santa Monica. Ok, we know that the Beckhams have a thing for naming their babies after where they were conceived, but Santa???  Do they not hear how ridiculous this sounds?  According to OK! Magazine, a Beckham source revealed that “Posh thinks Santa Beckham has a lovely ring to it and wants something unique."  Why not Monica?  I mean, wouldn't you rather your child potentially be associated with crazy Monica Geller instead of an old, fat white dude that loves giving gifts to children?   

Yeah, and she's around 5 months pregnant in this picture.  Hate. Her.

My Mantra this Week

This print is availabe for $10 at Super Swoon.

Best Advertisement Ever

120 bikes were used for this advertisement in Altlandsberg, Germany to promote the bicycle shop that encompasses the first level of the building.

Thanks for a Great Safety Year, 2010!

I'd like to know who this guy's publicist is.  Apparently the owner of the Gulf of Mexico oil rig that exploded last year, killing 11 workers and leading to what has been called the worst oil spill ever, said today that calling 2010 its "best year" in safety "may have been insensitive."  Hmmm, ya think?? So, despite the fact that this oil rig explosion was the worst of its kind EVER to happen, all the big wigs got substantial cash bonuses because they had a stellar safety year. How in the HELL is that even possible?

The article, via CNN, says "notwithstanding the tragic loss of life in the Gulf of Mexico, we (Transocean Ltd.) achieved an exemplary statistical safety record as measured by our total recordable incident rate and total potential severity rate," the statement reads. "As measured by these standards, we recorded the best year in safety performance in our company's history."

That includes a $200,000 salary increase for Transocean President and Chief Executive Officer Steven L. Newman, whose base salary will increase from $900,000 to $1.1 million, the report said. Newman's bonus was $374,062 and he also has a $5.4 million long-term compensation package the company awarded him upon his appointment as CEO in March 2010. Awesome.

Wow. This is crazy mind blowing shit. Definitely check out the comments beneath the article if you want to be even more infuriated / have a good laugh.
