Broken Angel

Broken Angel is this facisnating building in Brooklyn, built by Arthur Wood. He and his wife have lived in Broken Angel for thirty years, and the New York City Building department is trying to tear it down. It has been used as a backdrop for David Chappelle and Michel Gondry's concert film. The Woods are currently working with an architectural firm in NY (Parnass Digital Architecture) to bring it up to NYC's building code. They are taking help from anyone who is willing to contribute their skill, and donations by mail can be sent to:

Arthur Wood, 4 Downing street Brooklyn, New York 11238.

I think this is a really great pieace of architecture! Go to the site and look at the pictures. It is a piece of art. I hope to visit it one day. Lets help them keep it around.

"She's the portuguese Betsy Johnson, and I love her."

Mmhmm, wow.

That sure is something I have not seen or felt in a long time! [NO, its not that.] But what I would I compare a 5 minute orgasm to? Simple. That would be, Caroline Darrieux's clothing designs. The portuguese designer's collection is just too much for my ADD brain to handle. But it likes the challenge. Ties here, sequins there, and just when you think you recognise an item of clothing, and your saying, is that a....BAM! No, its not. Thats just what it used to be. Now its something entirely different, and its fabulous.

"She's the portuguese Betsy Johnson, and I love her."

Her unconciously creative way of thinking obviously extends much further than her clothes. The models are painted black almost completely, except for parts of the face, which for some reason, reminds me of a certain type of Spider monkey. (do not judge me, I did not know the actual name, I had to look it up)

All I have to say is, do not sit here a moment longer reading my run-on sentences, CHECK her out, because she is the real deal!

loofa for you, loofa for me

Okay. Now, I'm sorry.

But this is exciting news!

found out that you can grow your own loofa sponge, you know, the kind you use in the shower. It's a vegtable! I mean, I knew it was a plant, but had no idea you could grow your own.
For all who already knew this, shut up you smug bastards! This post is for those who didn't.
You can't plant them until spring, but plan on it because you know you want to now!

*Go here to buy seeds and save this for instructions on how.
