btw it's only black & white even though it might look like it has tiny dots of color.

Brittany Murphy

When I found out Brittany Murphy had died, I was floored. And unfortunately only after her death people are talking more about her. But I seriously have always liked her. I loved her in Uptown girls, Clueless, and Little black book. I'm really going to miss her.

Honestly I feel I'm having the worst week of my life, and next week won't be any better. Although I love going to college, the burdens that it provides are more than painful sometimes.

SO if I survive, I'll make sure to burn my books! ---- ok not really, but I will daydream about it....

My New iMac!!! My only love...

Actually, she arrived in her pretty disguising brown cardboard box last thursday, only to be hiding under the fabulous iMac box it came in. I've gone lesbian, she's my new lover. I caress her sleek silver skin, while spending our nights together. She talks to me, feeds me with the latest information my heart desires. I fall asleep watching her face.

Oh how falling in love feels! I must always own her.

Am I the only one that not only hates these shoes, but actually perceives them as creepy and worth of throwing in a campfire to watch them burn?
I sencerily think these shoes are horrible. I personally hate anything in the reptile and amphibian family, hence the creepiness to me, but still. They are just ....morbid. Yes a little creepy and morbid. I can't believe people actually liked them.

I won't deny that the first shoe from the right has a redimming quality to it. The soft color and gold speckles floating down really make it a rather cool design, but the shape overall is just ... uncalled for.

It all depends on how I'm feeling

Boots of Spanish Leather

Oh, I'm sailin' away my own true love,
I'm sailin' away in the morning.
Is there something I can send you from across the sea,
From the place that I'll be landing?

No, there's nothin' you can send me, my own true love,
There's nothin' I wish to be ownin'.
Just carry yourself back to me unspoiled,
From across that lonesome ocean.

Oh, but I just thought you might want something fine
Made of silver or of golden,
Either from the mountains of Madrid
Or from the coast of Barcelona.

Oh, but if I had the stars from the darkest night
And the diamonds from the deepest ocean,
I'd forsake them all for your sweet kiss,
For that's all I'm wishin' to be ownin'.

That I might be gone a long time
And it's only that I'm askin',
Is there something I can send you to remember me by,
To make your time more easy passin'.

Oh, how can, how can you ask me again,
It only brings me sorrow.
The same thing I want from you today,
I would want again tomorrow.

I got a letter on a lonesome day,
It was from her ship a-sailin',
Saying I don't know when I'll be comin' back again,
It depends on how I'm a-feelin'.

Well, if you, my love, must think that-a-way,
I'm sure your mind is roamin'.
I'm sure your heart is not with me,
But with the country to where you're goin'.

So take heed, take heed of the western wind,
Take heed of the stormy weather.
And yes, there's something you can send back to me,
Spanish boots of Spanish leather.

I love this song. I just can't stop singing it.. in my mind at least.

Out to Lunch

This past weekend I went to Pepe & Mito's only the greatest Mexican Restaurant in Deep Ellum, (Dallas, TX). I really love that place. The food was great and the weather couldn't have been better.

When Harry Met Sally

This movie is by far one of my favorite movies of all time. Anybody out there who has not seen it must rent it immediately. I would even suggest buying it.

This is my favorite scene, which happens to be the ending, but what can I say I'm a hopeless romantic.

Do not watch this video if you don't want to know the end!

Chanel Spring '10

Chanel Spring '10

Despite the "spring" motif, I still liked most of the darker looks better. And Karl never fails to amaze me, even with clogs.

Irving Penn

I take professional photos on the weekends at a commercial studio. Typically they consist of toddlers in their matched outfits looking off to the side as the pay attention to the parents behind me. Sometimes they laugh, sometimes I have to baby talk, sneeze, or refer to stinky feet. It's fun, and then it's not. But the photos that develop 30 minutes later are quite a different story. They are memories imprinted on paper. Years later mothers will look at them and tell stories of the mischievous smiles or missing teeth. But I have no control on how to set up these pictures. The studio has done all of it for me. The lights sit at my sides or above as if looking down directly at the subject. I can only choose from the backgrounds availble and from the props we replace every year. My brilliance lies in the clicking of the shutter release button and the twists and turns to zoom in or out. But I do nothing more. For that, my heroes are those whose photography capture mor than just smiles.

Irving Penn will remain in my memory as one of the most important photographers of my lifetime. I could be biased and say that some of his best work has included models in beautiful gowns and displaying flawless complexions. But I think his best work are portraits, especially those who caputure the soul of the subject. A favorite of mine is Pablo Picasso with his eye transporting you to a land you've never seen. His paintings float in my memory and I think of the Old Guitarist. I think that's my favorite Picasso painting. And with Irving Penn's portrair, Picasso is my old guitarist playing the strings he knows so well.

I hope generations to come can see the power behind the images captured by both Penn and Picasso. They ought to be remembered in distant dreams.
