I’m not exactly sure what Tracy Antonopoulos’ new film The Corner will be about yet…but I really don’t mind just watching the trailer over and over.
Another of her full length flicks I’m diggin is Piece of Meat. Tracy uses a fantastic soundtrack to narrate us through her tale…
Tracy’s style is ’50s greaser meets and has a love child with any one of Godard’s french muses. I’m sort of dying for a cigg right now and a good read…
I found Tracy’s Vimeo log via the video she did for Opening Ceremony’s spring collection with Kirsten Dunst and Jason Schwartzman.
but you pay me no attention, do you?
I haven’t listened to this album or this song in ages…still love it…

You always come to the parties
Too bad the feathers are for the birds
All your needs
I will not let you grieve
I want your picture but not your words
You know the wanting, but there’s no verse
We always run our heads too much
We know the reason, but such and such
On your own,
You will not let your arm go
Jack of all trades
Master of none
Cry all the time
Cause i’m not having fun
We all look bigger together
you know if this is the devil’s plan
On your own,
You can not call me your heart
you always want to be forgiven
The devil loves what and you print
All your needs
But you can not; you will not agree
I will always remember the first time I watched Crash. Steff? really?
Well shit yea for great genes.

I sometimes forget just how much I really do love country music. Maybe because I’m no longer an avid follower of the genre…not that I’m sure I ever was. Growing up with George Strait in the background (thanks mom!), I find myself able to sing along to most of the man’s hits. I even became smitten with him in his feature film, Pure Country. The man does pulls off a classic blazer with a cowboy hat.
Oh and there is also my obsession with the Texas Honky Tonk film Urban Cowboy.
Bud is the Travolta I love. Sissy and Pam have had some influence on my style. And of course Johnny Lee’s Looking for Love ties it all up in a Bolo. I’d like to point out Mr. Lee’s shirt and cowboy hat here:
My first country western live show was Dwight Yoakam. I’m so glad I was “dragged” to it. Dwight is the only man who can pull of tight as hell nude leather.
I think Gwyneth is going to slay her new role in Country Strong as an alcoholic country western starlet.
I’m sure once I see it I’ll be looking for a new pair of cowboy boots to replace the ones I once wore daily and start talking to myself (and other fortunate folks) with a honky tonk drawl.
Music is time travel.
Jake. Jake Ryan.
I have slipped once again into John Hugh’s fantasy world. Watching Easy-A provoked the sleeping giant desire in me to end up in a god-awful lavender poof ball of a dress and into a ’84 cherry red Porche.
Aside from the obvious, Jake’s appeal has to do with his rugged and slightly preppie attire. His jeans/sweater vest combo is my fave.
Well, who am I kidding…they’re all my fave.
I foresee a John Hughes marathon…

I have had a crush on both Zach Galifianakis and Megan Fox now for some time. Both together makes me smile.
What a strange but entertaining dinner party would that be?
From the article in Interview Magazine that accompanied the fantastic photo spread of Megan like we’ve not seen her before (I love how stylized the accompanying photo spread is):
GALIFIANAKIS: So what’s your favorite color?
FOX: Green. What’s yours?
GALIFIANAKIS: Specifically, it’s olive green.
FOX: That’s really specific.
GALIFIANAKIS: Well, this isn’t how I chose my favorite color, but I read somewhere that smart people tend toward green. So that’s good for both of us. Do you color anything green because you like it? Are your walls painted green? Is your car green? And I don’t mean “eco” green — the color green.
FOX: No. I don’t have any green walls or cars or furniture at the moment. But if I’m going to draw a picture, I will usually go for the green crayon or colored pencil or marker.
GALIFIANAKIS: I have a green 1998 Subaru.
FOX: My dad drives a Subaru. I think it might be a Forester.
GALIFIANAKIS: The Forester is a very good car. It gets good gas mileage. Good for your dad. Now we’re getting somewhere. Just out of curiosity, what kind of toothpaste do you use?
FOX: I guess it kind of depends on where I last went grocery shopping. Crest Vivid White is a good toothpaste. But I also use Tom’s of Maine.
GALIFIANAKIS: Tom’s of Maine is what I use. I also use their condoms.
FOX: [Laughs] Are they eco-friendly?
GALIFIANAKIS: I just imagine these old grandma and grandpa people in Maine making condoms. “These are made out of rubber trees. . . .” [Fox laughs] Speaking of which, what is the tenderest moment you’ve ever had with one of your grandparents?
FOX: Most of my grandparents died when I was really young.
GALIFIANAKIS: Oh, I’m sorry.
Zach is the best interviewer, obviously. One of my faves, Zach and Natalie Portman:
and he is also a great at being interviewed with Showaltz.
and for the fun of it, his classic lip-sync to “You Bring Me Joy.”

I went to my first PechaKucha Wednesday night. PechaKucha? Check it out and if you can make it to one in your city, I highly encourage! The topic for Wed’s night tied into DC Architecture Week. “Let’s Talk Architecture” featured area designers/architects and covered various topics and themes. From “Architecture in the Schools” to “Light Graffiti” to “The Concept and The Moment, Architectural Photography.”
What is it exactly? From the website:
PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public.
It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of “chit chat”, it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It’s a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.
The session consisted of 8 different topics and presentations. The last an international presentation from Gary Chang via Hong Kong. His presentation, “The Transformer House” opens your mind about what a small space can transform into over a lifetime and with many functions. Check it out here:
READ it and check out more images of his insane pad.
