Passion Projects

I would love to be able to paint an entire side of a building. The work above is so pretty and colorful, even the ceiling is painted! How cool is this photo above?! What a wonderful idea. I've always thought it true that the eyes are the windows to the soul! This piece literally made eyes windows! A lamp shade made of straws! I love wacky, unique art like this. So original and creative, think of all the time it took to make this! I love the random color pattern, so cool!
Beth Ditto has designed a new clothing line for sizes 14-32 and a few looks have been posted online, this is my favorite of the all the looks I've seen so far! I hope you can order them online so I can rock the designer duds in my home state of Ohio!

Dog Days Are Over

Happiness, it hurt like a train on a track
Coming towards her, stuck still no turning back
She hid around corners and she hid under beds
She killed it with kisses and from it she fled
With every bubble she sank with a drink
And washed it away down the kitchen sink
The dog days are over
The dog days are done
The horses are coming so you better run
Run fast for your mother run fast for your father
Run for your children and your sisters and brothers
Leave all your love and your loving behind you
Can't carry it with you if you want to survive
The dog days are over
The dog days are done
Can't you hear the horses
Cuz here they come
And I never wanted anything from you
Except everything you had
And what was left after that too. oh.
Happiness it hurt like a bullet in the mind
Stuck them up drainpipes
By someone who should know better than that
The dog days are over
The dog days are gone
Can you hear the horses
Cuz here they come
Run fast for your mother and fast for your father
Run for your children for your sisters and brothers
Leave all your love and your loving behind you
Can't carry it with you if you want to survive
The dog days are over
The dog days are gone
Can you hear the horses because here they come
The dog days are over
The dog days are gone
Can you hear the horses because here they come

My power just came back on about an hour ago, it went out at 2am and the heat and violent thunder and lightning kept me from any kind of beauty sleep. An as soon as the power came back on I realized I was too restless to curl up in bed with my cool operator. Leave it to me to blog late at night and early in the morning but never in the afternoon! I'm all set up on facebook now, I've had a myspace since freshman year of high school and since I just graduated I figured it was time to step my game up. So by now you know I'm obsessed with a little E4 show called Skins and I mentioned before all the great tunes that get played on the show, well Florence and the Machine played during season 3 and I fell head over heals so to speak in love with her! Dog Days Are Over is my favourite song and the lyrics are lovely which is why I've included them in this post. I also LOVE the song Girl with one Eye! So check out her CD people!!!

For The Love of Skins

Skins if you don't know is not just a wicked nick name for a contraceptive! It also happens to be the best damn show about teenagers on television (My so-called life would be the best no longer on air!) It airs in the UK and I've read that they might air an edited (lame ass) version in the US on ABC or something, don't bother to watch that though as it's likely to mutilate a great hour long program into maybe 30 minutes though some episodes will be cut down to around 10 minutes I imagine once they censor it! I'm ranting so any way... I recommend if your 16-24 years old to watch this show. It's realistic, masochistic, teens at their best and worst! It's highly entertaining and one should start with the first season for obvious reason and also because almost the entire cast gets replaced after the second season and as much as I LOVE the show the third season was not the best, the characters are awesome but the storyline lags in places! So I suggest watch the first two and by then you'll be so addicted and wanting more that the third season will still have you hooked. My favorite characters (of the first two seasons) are Cassie (now you know where I get my lovely and wow from lol) Sid (at first he will repulse and then he will attract you!) and Effy. (Because she's so beautiful and mysterious not to mention screwed up)[like so many of us] The show is one of my obsessions and you'd be lucky for it to become yours! This link is the best montage of the show ever, the douche who made it won't let me embed the code so... Oh and don't let the DJ fool you this video is off the chain! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0iWsXkxiyCc

This clip is lovely, mike bailey... I love you... a little bit!

Some of them want to...

I've had a busy weekend and I've got a lot of things I want to talk about! First off I have to mention a movie I have been anticipating for almost a year now! I still have to wait until September for it to come out which sucks, but I've waited this long! It's called Gamer and I've been watching the updates on imdb.com for ages now. The Idea of it alone sounds wicked and I suck hard at all video games so it's not exactly something I consider myself interested in but this movie is going to be amazing I just know it. It stars the brilliant chameleon Michael C. Hall whom you'll know from Dexter and hopefully Six Feet Under (Best show ever!) as well as Gerard Butler and Alison Lohman among others. The preview gets me so freaking amped check it out:

There is something about Michael C. Hall...

That's so appealing...

Ashley Greene (above) plays Alice in the movie twilight and you may or may not have been troubled by this but when I saw the movie I couldn't help thinking two things, the first being wow you are perfect for this role both in appearance and personality and the second being where have I seen you? I knew I'd recognized her from some other movie and finally it hit me! She was in Boogie Nights!!!!!! Sorry this is the best picture of her from the movie I could find but I'll keep looking, that's definitely her though and she's a much prettier brunette!

Watched Sunshine Cleaning over the weekend and I have to say the movie was heart breaking and disappointing! It had everything, all the elements were there but it just wasn't as brilliant as it could have been. the characters were well developed and I thought both Amy Adams and especially Emily Blunt gave very emotional performances! It was the storyline, it took it somewhere and then left it there. It could have been 10x better. I'll watch it again probably but it'll let me down every time!

I also went to Metamora, Indiana this weekend and had a lovely time! I bought a little wooden grounding bowl and a fairy riding a dragon designed wind chime, I also took loads of pictures I still have to go over and then I'll post my favorites.

I love the song in the trailer for Gamer... recognize the song?

Inspired by Darkness

There was a storm last night that knocked our power out for about 6 hours, I stayed up listening to wind, reading and writing among the shadows created by candles. It was hot and uncomfortable but I was inspired! I got some great new ideas for projects I wanna start and I'm going to hobby lobby later to get some materials. Below are some odd inspirations...

Lovely Young Adult Literature

I've been writing a lot recently and it's reminded me of some books I love and have read repeatedly over the years cause they were so intriguing! Here area few of them:

^This is a really quirky and lovable book about a girl at art school^
^This book is such a mysterious masterpiece in the simplest ways. It will stay with long after you read it and so will some of the songs listed in mix Cd's through out the book^

^My all time favorite book, beautifully written with hauntingly complex characters. A must read, the movie adaptation is brilliant which is hardly ever the case, but the movie uses almost the exact same dialogue from the book and the actors in the movie are perfect for every role. ^

This was my favorite book as a tween and is still just as magical every time I read it. The movie made based on the book was horrible beyond words and though I adore Anne Hathaway she butchered the beloved main character Ella!

^Another great book for kids and adults, the movie adaptation wasn't that bad either!^

^I heart Infinite Playlist <3>

^A poetic story about three lost souls all caught up in being something they're not.^

^I love Sheri Reynolds, she is so unique with her storytelling and characters, I've never been much into religious books but Sheri writes about spirituality as a way of life.^

I recommend these two Sheri Reynolds books to everyone they are both amazing and unique.

Running with scissors is sensational and I highly recommend watching the movie after!

Laurie Halse Anderson is a great Young Adult Lit. writer and though she has many great books, this one speaks for itself. For all the Kristen Stewart haters that say she can't act best wise up and do some research starting by watching the movie, which is spot on for the book staring her when she was only 14!

^Really crazy/beautiful storyline that anyone who's ever had a friend will cry and laugh over!^

Beauty Queen is not a happy story but it's one every young girl can learn from...

Tantalize is along the lines of Twilight but with more of an appetite, fast read will keep you guessing! Also Prozac Nation is one of my favorites! Lost pic of that one...

Hearts Supporting Lace

Today's been a slow lazy day full of non-productivity and surfing the net for cool pictures and Chelsea Handler comedy clips. I've started a new blog as well which you can find on my profile which will mostly consist of cool themed photos I find on the web. My first theme was "Heart Shaped Glasses" These were my two favorite pairs/photos of the bunch:
I really love the pair above and the ones Lily Allen is rocking bellow

~One of my Favourite songs by the lovely Lily Allen~

On a little side note; how freaking cute are Kelly Osbourne and her fiance Luke?!!

Bellow we have an old photo of Zooey Deschanel, always the stylish vintage shopper, I love the adorable pink ribbon in her hair gives the look a very young girly vibe!

Some really cool art, don't know who the artist is but I'd love to know how this painting came about! Nothing like a little tie dye alien art to inspire an artist! Fo Rizzle
