Bye bye, Chi!

(I don't know how the hell this deleted itself but AAAANYWAYS...)
I'll be in ATLANTA til Tuesday!

Happy Birthday, Nicolas!!

My brother's birthday is on Monday, but so what, I'll post this a few days earlier. I just purchased these Persol glasses for him, the tortoise on black (pictured below, second pair.) I'm the best sister, duh. (peep 'em here.)

When I think of teenage girls, I think of:

1. Those shorts that have various words (School name, sport, "babygirl", "Flirt," etc) imprinted across the ass..

2. Johnny Depp. Isn't this the demographic that most of his fans fall into?

3. Claire's Boutique..accessories and ear piercing, duh.

4. Miley Cyrus. Don't quote me on this because I have no idea who this girl is or what she does. I just know teen girls LOVE her.

And now, I also think of this video.


I'm glad I started off my morning by checking out a picture of a 42 year old, over-the-hill and almost menopausal Stacey Dash from the movie "Clueless". Fat, tomboy, 13 year old Micaela was jealous of this bitch way back when. Fast forward about a decade. It's safe to say that nothing (including my jealousy) has changed.

Planet B-Boy

Today I took my students (who split their time between my art class and a breakdance class) on a field trip to the Landmark Century theater to see this Planet B-Boy film, which is a documentary that goes inside the international underground breakdance scene in Japan, France, South Korea, and the US as these crews prepare for the biggest event of their lives: The Battle of the Year in Germany.

Even if you aren't a breakdancer (like me) its definitely a film worth seeing and something that anyone can appreciate. It took a really interesting look into the lives of these dancers that all come from different backgrounds but have hip-hop in common and a ridiculous passion for b-boying as an art form.

Besides, it's only playing in about 20 theaters in all of the US and is only screening in Chicago til the 17th of April...

Violators will be subject to what?

Timberlands (and Tyra) DO unify our nation!

As I stated back in January.."Timberland: Boots that unify our nation"


Sonotheque always reminds me of Summer, I don't know why?

Why can't the black dude be in a metal band?!

Photographer worth checking out: Jan von Holleben

"Dreams of Flying"

He also lets kids send in their own photos like these and puts them up on his site....

Heyyy at Brandy's Brother!

..and I KNOW that I'm not the only one who secretly listens to this song on their Ipod. This goes out to my girl over at Mrs. Windy City..

For those of you who have given up on life..

Kraft has decided to invest a hundred million dollars into the idea of frozen bagel sticks that are filled with cream cheese aka what looks to me like a Twinkie twinsie. If I ever get to the point where I: a) am physically incapable of taking a knife and smearing Philadelphia onto my bagel or b) think that I am "too busy" to take 2, maybe 3 minutes tops out of my morning to prepare said bagel, smack me across my face, straighten my fat ass out..or just simply kick me off my high horse. Although this idea seems completely ridiculous, I don't find myself too shocked. We are officially in the age of PB & J Uncrustables, Lunchables and Go-Gurts.

Everyday that Tennille and I go to eat at my favorite Mexican restaurant, El Faro....we get hooked the fuck up by our all-time FAVORITE waiter, Ricky. Either he'll bring us free flan, free pastel de tres leches or free faro cake. On top of that, hes always super on point about bringing our food out fast, unlike anyone else there. So now, we get fed for free. And he insists it ain't him who hooks it up, but that there's some secret admirer person who keeps paying our food.
