Becky, represent for me.. I have no bike and questionable navagation skills.
I am super pumped about Target’s new Go International line by Rogan that is coming out tomorrow. I think I am going to trek my ass out to the Target in the middle of Brooklyn, the one no one goes to on Saturday to pick me up some animal print miniskirts and rompers. Don’t judge me.
These wheatpasted ads are apparently going up all over Canada. I think they’re rad.
Think of it as a festival of Breaking Away shorts with bike tricks in between. I went last year and it was a blast. The movies are fun and it was the first time I saw Dan Deacon- and it was free! So, who’s down?
Also- instead of Dan Deacon they have this Bikes Rock show (also free) that sounds totally rad. See below.
9pm till late
259 Banker St.
between Calyer St. and Franklin
SOFT CIRCLE and DANIEL LEEB
The performance is a collaboration between artist and musician, Hisham Bharoocha (Soft Circle, formerly of Lightning Bolt and Black Dice), and filmmaker, Daniel Leeb (Cinecycle). Their piece consists of sounds created from bicycle parts, electronics and live video mixing.
SIMONE PACE (BLONDE REDHEAD)
Original Live Score
Directed by Jorgen Leth (A SUNDAY IN HELL, FIVE OBSTRUCTIONS)
Ole Ritter tries to break the unbreakable record by Eddy Merckx. The Hour Track Record is one of the most prestigious records in cycling. This classic film, directed by one of Europe’s most prolific filmmakers, is a treat for the track bike fan and the film lover alike. Simone Pace’s adept live score enhances the visual mastery of Leth.
Stick Around for the Dance Party afterwards
So, last night I did my first project with NY Cares, which is an organization that makes it super easy to find and sign up for all types of volunteer opportunities in the city. Mags and I went to help put on this dinner/game night for low-income families with little kids.. and “Don’t Break the Ice” was a huge hit. I totally lucked out and had a really fun time with this adorable 5-year-old.. (she told me Hannah Montana was waiting for her at home…) Turns out we fed 113 kids dinner last night. So, be inspired, suckers.. and go sign up for an orientation.
this is how big eggs should be because I love them so much
Spoiler alert: the buffalo makes it
I can’t wait.
This will get you in the mood:
Today on the bus, a guy asked me what day of the week it was. I had to tell him, it only Tuesday.
Elizabeth: i need more chuck and less serena crying
PS – GG totally stressed me out this week. I can’t deal with Dan and Serena drama right now, it’s heartbreaking.
Red Hook + Ikea = better chance of a real couch for me! Opens June 18th. I don’t care if I’m supposed to be annoyed at commercialism – I’ve never been to IKEA and it is a tragedy, I’m sorry.
This post is totally all Nora’s, but I’m helping.
If your contribution to legging design is built-in knee pads, what do you THINK we’re going to assume you’re doing?
PS- Don’t ruin Ugly Betty. THANKS.
Woah. I have to admit, I posted without actually watching the video first.. and shit, that is creepy! I’m a little traumatized.. sorry, guys.
How to stop losing your wallet:
It is 5:30am and I am awakeeeee. I think it’s from coffee. Is that possible? Why am I like a 7 year old who isn’t allowed to have pop with dinner? This chart is from a mormon blog.. but I’m not sure why since I didn’t think mormons could have any caffeine.
it’s from the library of congress
I can’t make this one work on Jezebel (thanks Liz), but desperately needed to see cats on treadmill.. so I found the above. Love how the one thinks he’s running with front paws only on the ‘mill.
hahaha.. ok, here’s the original.
Want to Be My Boyfriend? Please Define
By MARGUERITE FIELDS
RECENTLY my mother asked me to clarify what I meant when I said I was
dating someone, versus when I was hooking up with someone, versus when
I was seeing someone. And I had trouble answering her because the many
options overlap and blur in my mind. But at one point, four years ago,
I had a boyfriend. And I know he was my boyfriend because he said, “I
want you to be my girlfriend,” and I said, “O.K.”
He and I dated for over a year, and when we broke up I thought my
angsty heart was going to spit itself right up out of my sore throat.
Afterward, I moved out of my mother’s house in Brooklyn and into an
apartment in the East Village, and from there it becomes confusing.
So, a few days after the chat with my mom, when I found myself
downtown drinking tea with my friend Steven, I asked him what he
thought about dating. He has a long-term girlfriend, and I was curious
how he viewed their relationship.
“The main thing,” he said, “is I don’t mind if she sleeps with other
people. I mean, she’s not my property, right? I’m just glad I get to
hang out with her. Spend time with her. Because that’s all we really
have, you know? I don’t want her to be mine, and I don’t want to be
This pic cracks me up for some reason. Lionel Richie looks like he might drop Harlow and his shirt is hilarious considering this is a shoot for Harpers Bazaar.
My sister alerted me to this store that is full of awesomeness: Poketo. One area of awesomeness that they specialize in is wallets, which I think Emily should definitely look into. Examples below, as well as examples of their sweetass mofo art prints…becky, notice use of bikes…
Also, those are all just $20
now on to prints
Ok, I’m not sure if this means she’ll do it forever.. but my pretty girl Meetzers brought me her mouse on a rope.. we played, I threw it across the room.. she brought it back! Threw it again, same thing! Ok, third time wasn’t the charm.. but two in a row! Great job Meetz! Now do this please:
If you’re jealous, here’s how to teach your cat to fetch. However, Meetza is a prodigy that needed no training. My favorite part, “Cats enjoy the time you spend with them and this extra fun game, which involves you as much as your cat, will create a bond that lasts forever.”
Why do they talk so slow and why don’t their mouths move?
And why can’t I figure out how to post videos?
Does anyone else think that there are a lot of hot guys on top chef? Namely Spike and Ryan??t
Cat shoes reminded me that I have always loved animals doing things they’re not supposed to do.. like things humans do. I used to have pictures of cats in sunglasses drinking iced tea, and another pic of an elephant sitting on a tiny car. Anyway. Intern Dan says Meetza will be the laughing stock of Brooklyn if she gets shoes. That is why Dan is an intern. To be fair, he did have some other ideas..
Dan: get meetza roller skates!
then we can push her around
OR A SKATEBOARD
or a little car
Did I find this photo or did I outsource it to the intern? You’ll never know.
This little gem posts Weight Watchers recipe cards from 1974. I think the Chilled Celery Log is my favorite or maybe the Inspiration Soup. Look how far we have come with our stupid diet foods. Now we have Skinny Bitch and veggieburgers – thank god!
The other blog that has been brought to my attention recently is one dedicated to passive agressive notes. It reminds me of the maxim I learned from Arrested Development (…and thats why you always leave a note). It also reminds me of the engrish blog because a lot of the signs just don’t make sense. People are crazy.
Shout out to Maddie for showing me these- woot.
I really want these for Meetzers so we can take her on walks in our nabe.. (there is too much glass on the sidewalk otherwise).
.. just like this.
I kind of want this, but am now realizing what a terrible idea it would be. Mostly because it’s called “figure skating dress” and is actually a cross between a bathing suit and dress-up. And a lot of spandex. Forget you, American Apparel!
get it? paper plates
This blog is called Museum of Kitschy Stitches. We should totally be reading this all the time.. It was up for a Webby. As if the pic above isn’t reason enough for you..
I need everything in the new line of Corion by Missoni. Jesus, it’s like someone raided my mind grapes for ideas and then designed some bathrooms. Oh god, I don’t think I’ve ever seen something more aesthetically pleasing for a bathroom in my life.
Get this wallet and you’ll shoot up a diner.
