Crave You…

Obsessed with this song, by Flight Facilities, and the video is pretty cool too…

I walked into the room dripping in gold.
Dripping in gold.
A wave of heads did turn, or so I’ve been told.
My heart broke when I saw you kept your gaze controlled. Oh I cannot solve.

Why can’t you want me like the other boys do?

They stare at me while I stare at you…

Last Night..PB&J

Peter Bjorn and John, amazing show last night at the dark, underground venue, the Santos Party House! I slipped past the “List” and found myself in a dark, cave like bar, heavy with anticipation, hip kids wearing sweaters,  lots of layers and drinking beers too fast. The light seemed hazy and smoky as we stood there waiting… But of course we were not disappointed as you cast a trance like melancholy-magic spell on everybody in the room, as we swayed to your irony.

Thank you for rocking NYC for all the cool kids.. Please come back soon!! Great new album, Gimme Some, oh Peter, Bjorn & John.. you can’t be beat. We love you!!

Ode to LA

Ode to LA.

People in my Hometown are always telling me they think I’m gonna make it.
definitely.

Well, I’ve been to Hollywood Twice.
And I flew back Both.

Hollywood. Los Angeles.
The City of Dreams….

It turns out.
In Hollywood A Lot of people
Showed up.
To Cash in
Their
Winning
Number.
And
Deserved prize.
Much like
Me.

There’s something about those blinking hills and perfect Pacific breezes.

But I have never felt so alone.
I have never seemed so lonely
in a crowded space.
As I always feel when I’m left in LA.

But I miss you Babe’
I do miss breathing you in LA…
The desert air

Dry.

Dusting my feet.
Painted toes. Brown.

My hair sun-bleached like Snow-
White.


But I’m still lonely.
And wondering
Where next?

Hurry up.

I better move fast.

Coming Home.. Detroit, 1968

Philip Levine  [1972]

A winter Tuesday, the city pouring fire,

Ford Rouge sulphurs the sun, Cadillac, Lincoln,

Chevy grey. The fat stacks

of breweries hold thir tongues. Rags,

papers, hands, the stems of birches

dirtied with words.

Near the freeway

you stop and wonder what came off,

recall the snowstorm where you lost it all,

the wolverine, the northern bear, the wolf

caught out, ice and steel raining

from the foundaries in a shower of

human breath. On sleds in the false sun

the new material rests. One brown child

stares and stares into your frozen eyes

until the lights change and you go

forward to work. The charred faces, the eyes

boarded up, the rubble of innards, the cry

of wet smoke hanging in your throat,

the twisted river stopped at the colour of iron.

We burn this city every day.

Ways of Ecology

An excerpt from my newest, favorite read,  The Spell of the Sensuous, a philosophy book written by David Abram… it arrived in the mail yesterday evening…

…in so far as my hand knows hardness and softness, and my gaze knows the moon’s light, it is as a certain way of linking up with the phenomenon and communicating with it. Hardness and softness, roughness and smoothness, moonlight and sunlight, present themselves in our recollection not pre-eminently as sensory contests but as certain kinds of symbioses, certain ways the outside has of invading us and certain ways we have of meeting the invasion…

This is not the last time you will be hearing from David Abram.. I have a feeling… xoxo

Andy Warhol

An homage to  the wonderful, Andy Warhol… the King of Pop Art… We will never forget you…


When I got my first television set, I stopped caring so much about having close relationships.  -Andy Warhol


I am a deeply superficial person.   -Andy Warhol

During the 1960s, I think, people forgot what emotions were supposed to be. And I don’t think they’ve ever remembered.  Andy Warhol




I had a lot of dates but I decided to stay home and dye my eyebrows. -Andy Warhol


People need to be made more aware of the need to work at learning how to live because life is so quick and sometimes it goes away too quickly.  -Andy Warhol



My idea of a good picture is one that’s in focus and of a famous person.  -Andy Warhol

Fantasy love is much better than reality love. Never doing it is very exciting. The most exciting attractions are between two opposites that never meet.   Andy Warhol…….xoxo

Nostalgia

It’s the second weekend in 2010, so in celebration of the new year and Lady Gaga & Polaroid’s marriage, lets raise our champagne glasses and toast. To our last look backwards at 2009. ….Through Polaroids…. Everything just seems so much sweeter framed in a square white box. xoxo

Lady Gaga Gives Polaroid a Facelift

Lady Gaga publicly announced on Thursday, January 7 2010 at the  Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas that she is collaborating with Polaroid as their new Creative Director to update and freshen Polaroid’s s image, and help to bring the instant cameras into the digital age. The new line of Polaroid products and advertising will be available later this year.

“I am so proud to announce my new partnership with Polaroid as the creative director and inventor of specialty projects”, said Lady Gaga. “The Haus of Gaga has been developing prototypes in the vein of fashion/technology/photography innovation–blending the iconic history of Polaroid and instant film with the digital era–and we are excited to collaborate on these ventures with the Polaroid brand. Lifestyle, music, art, fashion: I am so excited to extend myself behind the scenes as a designer, and to as my father puts it–finally, have a real job.”

The Haus of Gaga can do anything, and look sexy doing it. I am confident that Lady Gaga will contribute beautiful creativity and popularity to Polaroid. I can’t wait to see and experience the cameras, pictures, art, goodies, and aesthetic that this collaboration will produce. There is no doubt in my mind that Lady GaGa will not abandon her music or performing; once a performer and musician, always one.
