I am speechless...

This has to be the most magnificent wall painting I have ever seen. And apparently it is for a baby's room, lucky kid.


More later...

" I see the dopeness in everything, and you just see the wackness. "

" Its the summer of 1994, and the streets of New York are pulsing with hip hop and wafting with the sweet aroma of marijuana. The newly-inaugurated mayor, Rudolph Giuliani, is only beginning to implement his anti-fun initiatives against crimes like noisy portable radio, graffiti and public drunkenness.

The Wackness centers upon a troubled high school student named Luke Shapiro (Josh Peck)a teenage pot dealer who forms a friendship with Dr. Jeffrey Squires (Ben Kingsley), a psychiatrist and kindred lost soul. When the doctor proposes Luke trade him weed for therapy sessions, the two begin to explore both New York City and their own depression.

Propelled by an exuberant hip hop score, The Wackness captures the spell of 1994--a time of pagers, not cell phones; a time when Tupac and Biggie were alive but Kurt Cobain had just died. Funny and moving, The Wackness is an offbeat tale of two lost souls stumbling towards maturity. " -Imdb description.

The Life Before Her Eyes

I just finished a great book by Laura Kasischke, called The Life Before Her Eyes. And now they have made a movie of it starring Evan Rachel Wood, Uma Thurman, and Eva Amurri. I love Eva Amurri and Uma Thurman, so I definitely want to see this.

" They're in the girl's room when they hear they first dot-dot-dot of semi-automatic gunfire. It sounds phony and far away, and they keep doing what they're doing-brushing their hair, looking at their reflections in the mirror...
Dot-dot-dot. "

" Is this a pregnant superhero? "

Yes, yes it is.

Failure to Launch

Has anyone seen Failure to Launch? It was a decent movie, but the highlight was Zooey Deschanel, and her amazing outfits. And also Riley, from National Treasure.

Kit: I smell something. Do you smell something?
Paula: Oh, Tripp and I had crab today.
Kit: No, that's not it. I smell... fun.
Paula: What?
Kit: You are a dirty little fun-haver.

Kit: Well, everyone at work went to TGI Fridays, but I don't really like that place. Or anyone that I work with.

Kit: Good news. It's Champagne Thursday.
Paula: It's Friday.
Kit: Uh, yeah, it came twice this week.
Paula: For the third straight week.
Kit: There's talk of making it permanent.
Paula: Oh, kind of like Daylight Saving's Time?
Kit: Right, but for booze.

The Craftiness

Wouldn't these make great magnets?

Its Arrested Development

[the Bluths have hired Andy Griffith to sit in on George Sr's hearing]
Lindsay Funke: Bad news. Andy Griffith turned us down. He didn't like his trailer.
[the camera pans over to reveal the log cabin truck]
Lindsay Funke: He thought we were making fun of him.
Narrator: They were not making fun of Andy Griffith. This cannot be stressed enough.

Narrator: Michael was having brunch with Sally Sitwell at a restaurant called Skip Church's Bistro. In addition to brunch, the restaurant was known for an item on the menu called the "Skip's Scramble", an omelet that contained everything on the menu. Do not order the Skip's Scramble.

Michael: I burned it. Down to the ground.
George Sr.: There was money in that banana stand.
Michael: Well, it's all gone now.
George Sr.: There was $250,000 lining the inside walls of the banana stand.
Michael: What?
George Sr.: Cash, Michael. What the hell did you think I meant when I said...
[strangles Michael]
George Sr.: [yells] There is money... in... the banana stand.
Prison guard: [George Sr. quickly takes his hands off Michael] No Touching.
George Sr.: No touching.
Prison guard: No touching.

" I've got my hair..."

I noticed that the only comment so far, was about Happy Fun Ball. Which interests me. How did that person find my blog? And better yet, were they intentionally looking for Happy Fun Ball? The mind boggles.
Yes, it is from HAIR.

The Venture Brothers!

Brock Samson: You did this! You did this, didn't you? RRRAH!
Baron √únderbheit: As usual, your detective skills are impeccable, Samson. You have succeeded in exposing my sinister plan to lock myself in a dungeon, chained to an albino.

What she did was not " girl-rock "

" I've always been a Peter Pan-type of girl: I'm a female and I like being female, but when I was younger I didn't want to be any gender. I was disappointed to find out that I had to be a gender. " - Patti Smith in BUST magazine.

" Them Texas boys sure do yodel well..."

This has nothing to do with Texas, or yodeling...

Ellegirl, you've still got it!

" Snap a Femur Graham "

Tonight I went to my town's childern's theater's production of " Romeo & Juliet. " I enjoyed it throughly. But really caught my eye were the interesting costumes. They were neo-new-wave-y with a hint of punk and 80s. So I have dedicated this post to what people would look like in an apocalyptic world of purple,silver,and black.
