Fanart is not unusual to come across…but sometimes you come across fanart that is so unusual (and varrying degrees of wonderful) that you just have to share it with the world. Check out this Beckart cookie by a girl named Lizzie I found on the Oh So Quiet Show. Amazing.
Check out Tricia’s roundup of how those in clubland will remember this past year…what about you? What will go down in the history books as being your defining moment of 2 to the 005?
What could possibly be on Claire Danes‘s mind as she sits between boyfriend Billy Crudup and not boyfriend David Duchovny during a recent Knicks game?
Um, how psyched am I to learn that everyone’s favorite smart, yet slightly snotty, America’s Next Top Model alumn, Elyse Sewell, is releasing her very own book!?!? It comes out January 19, 2006 on SCMP Book Publishing and it’s going to be based on some of Elyse’s blog postings but also featuring some previously un-blogged material. Sadly the book will only be available in Hong Kong. My Asia-bound friends holla back!
In related news, check out this story about the making of The Shins video for “Saint Simon” (in case you weren’t aware, Elyse goes out with Marty from The Shins). The video features the guys walking through a privately-owned reserve in Mexico that serves as the winter migration home for millions of monarch butterflies. Pretty damn cool.
On a fashion related note, Daniel Franco finally got kicked of “Project Runway“…again. He seems like a sweet guy, but if I had to sit through another week of him scrambling to finish an outfit I would seriously vomit all over myself. I kinda knew it had to be him b/c I remember seeing Santino at the BR challenge. Santino = This year’s Wendy Pepper meets Kara Saun? As in totally bitchy but talented?
More in fashion, the January 2006 issue of US Vogue has decided that
Americans give a crap about Sienna Miller doing her best Edie Sedgwick impression (she’s currently filming Factory Girl) and put her on the cover. Yes, because those trailers for Casanova looked…awesome as in awesomely bad (sorry Heath). I’ve only ever seen her in Alfie, and even then I only remember her boobs. Can Sienna act her way out of a paper bag? Link from ONTD.
Well that was…fun?
UPDATE: Today (Wednesday) I tried riding my bike to work, a feat I’ve only attempted once before in the summer. Let me tell you this, it’s not as much fun riding your bike to work in the dead of winter. It took me 45 minutes to ride to work, which was shorter than the hour it took me to walk home last night, but I’m not sure what I’ll end up doing tomorrow if the strike is still on.
Whatever, transit strike. Even you can’t get me down after seeing awesomeness this morning in the form of New York magazine. Sayeth the glossy mag about Ben: “Ben Stapelman, 19, rock singer.
Ben Stapelman’s band, Surefire (imagine early Tom Petty crossed with Coldplay), has built a rabid following on MySpace and now plays sold-out gigs at the Bowery Ballroom.
Hooray! Link from Audrey.
