Valentino Fall 2016 Ad - 05

++So today's edition is completely out of the latest Vanity Fair. Really enjoying the Lars Von Triersy-ness of this Valentino campaign. And here's the lady VF be hypin...

Microblogging

Sina-weibo
++Alternate universii are always cool/compelling to me and above is what Twitter in China looks like, with a service called Weibo (I think I've written about this before.) Even the bird logo is slightly different.

++The other night my husband and I walked into a restaurant that went hard on the blue neon decor. I said "This looks like a scene from a Michael Mann movie where a shootout would take place. All that's missing is a giant fish tank." Him "Yeah, I'm just waiting for shots to be fired and group of hookers that comes running out from the back, screaming and giggling."

This Is Revelational

++I'm going to do something that I don't normally do, which is to post a song that I'm mostly just lukewarm on... it's kinda catchy I guess? That was (is?) a fun trend...the text across the face thing.

++For the record, I do NOT see The Edge's face in this picture but I'm sure if I squinted really hard I probably could.

++Probably the scariest part of Silence of the Lambs for people was when the lady had to put lots of lotion on.. because whenever you have too much lotion and you spread it on to someone else they get horrified... it's like you are asking them to kill for you or for help moving.

++Hey Avery: permission to use "Peeky binders." C'mon, it's gold.

Fuzzy Warbles

++Andy Partridge: Seems like it would be fun to be a Brit, they seem to have license to be more opinionated? How is it that they have the rep for being both caustic and having a stiff upper lip? And yet can make chipper sounding music like the song above? Nothing but questions, all the time.

Quickies

++Wild Belle: Some weeks are music weeks and some aren't and I've been definitely jonesing for something meaty for the commute. Berggsy don't fail me now!

++Also wanted to catch up with Cole MGN and am so into the atmosphere of this "inc. no world"project he's associated with if it were about half as long! Just needs a little snipping, to these ears, but hey what do I know??

Cologne, 1970

++Today pick is from the under-recognized tenor, Carlo Bergonzi, known for his interpretations of Verdi and still a wonder to listen to all these decades later. Musicians used to have meatier bios and weren't all just about selfies on yachts back in the day:

During WWII, Bergonzi became involved in anti-Nazi activities and was interned in a German prisoner-of-war camp in 1943. Two year later, he was freed by the Russians and walked 106 km in order to reach an American camp. However, while on his way, he drank unboiled water and contracted typphoid, from which he recovered within a year. After the war he returned to the Arrigo Boito Conservatory in Parma, Italy, weighing just over 36 kilograms (80 pounds)

Watch out for that unboiled water, kids.

Quickies

++Surprised this hasn't ever been used for realtor.com.

++Also a noteworthy jammer, this one Trophy, by Nao and AK Paul, brother of Jai Paul neither of whom I suspect actually exists? This may be one of my few favorite songs of the year so far...

That's The Way

++I was going to post something more sophisticated and British and dirge-like but sometimes you are cautiously optimistic and want to start the day off with lively and sweet images.

++Yikes, that's some mafia stuff to make money on both the front and back end or in this case the disease and the cure.

++Hard to know if I miss gaming when you hear about choadstools and seeing the sunrise from Baal's scrote.
