You Don’t Know Me, You’re Dead Wrong

Nice found footage, I’m a sucker for Doo Wop gangs and vintage cityscapes (albeit ever so brief in this video).

She Appeared Then Disappeared

She was only here for 48 years but she sure did live.

Here she is taking a video of me speaking about HER. In my humble opinion, she never got the credit she truly deserved. But alas our gurus and real leaders reign with silence and humility. It is only the mediocre who tout their strength, skills and ‘wisdom’.  Having known her was a blessing.

The 2nd photo is of Ari’s waist – she was so proud of her beautiful waist after bearing children. She told me that before her husband was killed, she dreamed of his passing. I tried calling her last week to say hi and arrange a visit. Unfortunately, I was unable to reach her.

RIP ARI UP.

When I was a young girl I thought I’d lose my virginity to Robert Smith and become his sidekick like Siouxsie (both pictured above). It didn’t happen and I’m ok with it.

I thought we’d go to Pluto…

Jesus Diamante

Posted in art, fashion, health, life, love, photography, WTF by the consummate on September 9, 2009

well, well, well…

i stumbled upon the Jesus Diamante site recently. WOW. i’m taken aback. pre-Sophia Coppola exposing the world to contemporary Japanese culture or as i like to call it, japanophilism, i was slightly obsessed with the styleeeee. my friend esther grew up in tokyo and would take me to little tokyo in downtown LA back in the 90’s. i’d buy all the mini mags i could find as well as hella product. WHY on earth does japanese shampoo smell better than any other shampoo on earth? it must be the pretty sparkles on the packaging. no one can beat the packaging. ANYWAY. the mags were amazing. plus they come with some sort of prize often (as they do in Europe only BETTER because it’s Japanese and not European).  i was always into the hair color Japanese women chose – that not quite blonde with a hint of red in it. i wanted to get my hair did in that color. but alas, it just wouldn’t look right on me. not only was it the hair that lured me in, it was the art direction, the over all style of the content and design. it was like a full-sensory explosion on the pages of a print magazine. AMAZING. my love for the slightly obnoxious had just reached its pinnacle.

nevertheless, it is in that same guise that i chose to highlight JESUS DIAMANTE. i came across the site because i jacked borrowed one of the images for my twitter profile pic so i decided to check out the entire site. and OH DEAR JESUS, or should I say OH DEAR JESUS DIAMANTE. this is obscene. so much lace and faux floral one could puke. they even give the madonna inn a run for its money. and that is a HUGE statement for me to make. i’d like to see them expand from an online retail shop to a full on amusement park. can you imagine what the restrooms would look like!?

here are a few images i grabbed from the site. i’ll have to contact esther to find out exactly what’s going on here. but from the pics you can get a sense of it.

Suffice to say this is something that i am seriously pondering writing a dissertation on. that is, if i go for a PhD. academics aside, no one can front on JESUS. DIAMANTE that is.

Jane Birkin

Posted in fashion, film, life, music, relationships, sex by the consummate on August 19, 2009

Sometimes I wanna be that bitch Jane Birkin. Part of the whole bitch factor is sometimes you want to force feed her and shake her so hard until she stops it with that deer in the headlights look. I use bitch with the utmost respect. I mean, she had a Hermès bag named after her. She has three different babies’ daddies (some of the most talented men of her time). She was the skinniest bitch around, often times scantily clad in public, boobies in full view and made orgasmic sounds on record (banned from the top of the pops).  More over, she just went for it, with no fear. She is still performing today. I’d like to hang out with her, buy her a sandwich.

In My Room – Best Coast

When I grow up, get married, pop out a babelah & all that jazz, I want to have my own private room. It will be ALL MINE and possibly look something like this –

And I’ll play tunes like this Flat Duo Jets‘ jam (My Life, My Love)

& X’s Under the Big Black Sun

And, I’m going to lounge around in a halter & hot pants wearing shoes like these “hollywood stiletto heels” while reading the yoga sutras.

PS: you’ll have to have a secret password to get through the door.
