Tonight, my friend performed an acoustic version of MGMT’s “Electric Feel,” and it quickly rewound my brain back to the summer of ‘08, when this song, along with “Time to Pretend” were the jam. I remembered new friendships and a new relationship had begun, and I remembered how naive, but happy I was. I remembered sitting on a rooftop, drinking beers “like...

Ok, so, I hit some horrible levels of writer’s block. I have therefore turned to the internet to distract me help me. I came across STREETFSN — I’ve been living in a cave, I know — but holy wow, I don’t know if it’s this season’s color blocking or what, but jesus, would you look at these photos? I still can’t unblock my brainbox, but at least I know...
In sticking with today’s ”Lit Theme,” I have decided to share this little gem. If you haven’t heard of Kaie Kellough, he is a Montreal poet/soundmixer extraordinaire. Most of his performances are these incredible letter-phoneme-formant-pattern breakdowns, and they’re pretty incredible. Here is his “Alphabet” — this is the first piece I ever...
Ok, I came across this video from Kevin Calero not too long ago, and I can’t get the song or this video out of my head for that matter. The shoot is for last year’s Simons’ campaign. (The campaign was more like a rebrand for the department store.*) I think I love the concept the most (because the clothing is nothing new, really) : photograph someone falling onto a bed....

Red, teal/seafoam color combinations. YES.
“I keep wondering if there is an afterlife, and if there is will they be able to break a twenty?” -Woody Allen, Without Feathers (Reading some Woody Allen for an upcoming story pour mon creative writing class.) (It’s in English, not Franglais.)
Channeling some of these vibes for an upcoming project.

Ay dios mio, I was crossing myself so much — and I’m not even religious! (And I don’t even speak Spanish!) The velvet! The color blocking! Nothing but gem tones of sapphire, orange, ruby, and emerald! (Pale-kid-friendly!) The angular, jagged prints! [ALSO — my 100th post?! This has been the sweetest study break ever.]
And then there was Rodarte...
Tulle, knits, the beading on the boots. Oh dear god, thank you. Thank you.
“The wider world that perceives fashion as a frivolity that should be done away with —the point is that fashion is the armour to survive the reality of everyday life! I don’t think you could do away with it; it would be like doing away with civilization.” -Bill Cunningham

There is going to be a slight slowdown in posts, you guys. I have a few applications due, a presentation or two, a couple of exams, and a paper and a proposal both up for review. So I leave you with this little gem. I am taking a creative writing class this semester (not in poetry, phew!*) and I have to perform/read a piece in front of the department. (My knees are shaking just thinking about...
