Leeds, England.

Bump a fat rail because foot-traffic at the mall was a fist-raping, soul-tarring clusterfuck, but by gum, Jesus would’ve wanted you to get that doorbuster deal, so you done all right, sunshine.

Mean Girls Monday: You could try Sears

July 5, 2010




The sick thing is there was a store like that in my mall when I was a teenager but it was called “5,7,9.” Though I can attest it carried sizes lower than 5, as to the other end of the scale, if it carried over size 9, I was unaware of it. That’s bad enough but here’s the thing: I was lucky enough to be in kind of a Cindy Crawford, not Kate Moss, era.

I’m sure that if such a store still existed, changing ideal body types would dictate that it be called something like “1,3,5.” Well, what am I talking about; such things do exist of course: Forever 21 and the Bebe, yes? Blarg.

PSA: Collarbones are beautiful, but boobs are even better. Take it to the bank. SeaQuest out!

Daily Batman: “Wtmfh” edition

June 22, 2010

Batman’s big love scene — with a goat. Wtmfh? So many more questions than answers. I’ll admit, that would discredit Batman. That would discredit just about anybody, even people who make their living in legit adult entertainment and are recognized for it. Like, I dunno, Tera Patrick, even. I mean — a goat? Shit. That’s bad juju. Madison Ivy all calls Tera Patrick to cancel coffee dates; Ron Jeremy turns and quickly walks away from Tera Patrick at the Van Nuys opening of some low-rent Ed Hardy boutique; Sasha Grey sees Tera Patrick waving in the security camera at the gates of her complex and pretends she is sick with laryngitis.* Puzzled and unwanted, a lonely Tera Patrick walks forlornly down Rodeo Drive, scuffing her clear lucite heels as she trudges to the picked over remains of a sidewalk sale at the Bebe. Poor Tera Patrick.

Oh, holy heck! Piss up a penny whistle, it is CLEARLY time for me to hit the hay! You stay classy, The Internet. I am exhausted as heck.



*A maledictory fiction for humor’s sake: the real Sasha Grey would NEVER do that. (And needless to say, neither would Ms. Patrick be guilty of hurting an animal even for the sake of film.)

Daily Batman: Violette van Parys edition

November 22, 2009

After yesterday’s Ellen Von Unwerth photos of Melissa Haro Rose and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in Chantal Thomass lingerie, I was bumming around on the Chantal Thomass website, not ashamed to say taking screencaps of lingerie (it happens!), and I stumbled over a link to the site of French jewelry designer Violette van Parys. She works mainly in porcelain. Here are some snaps of her “bad Batgirl” collection.


Phrases include, “I’m a bad Batgirl,” “Catch me if you can,” and “Born to be wild.”

You can’t buy her stuff online from her website, and it is only sold stateside at a store called Catbird in NYC. However, she did a run for Topshop’s A/W 09 collection in the UK, and you can probably get that online (or in person if you’re abroad).

edit: Just scoured the topshop website and the Violette van Parys brooches are not available online. In-store only. But I did find two fricking sweet pairs of tights with hearts, one all-over and the other with a row of hearts as a backseam.

Man, I would so buy those. Holy shit, when did they put up a “wishlist” feature? Dude. You’re getting no work out of me the rest of the day.
