    victorias_secret.jpgwhat a weekend. this happened. then this followed. which was, of course, followed by this. phew! but i’m glad that’s over with. it’s a lot of cropping and uploading. and sad, really. because it’s got to be pretty tough to take 25 of the hottest women in the world, dress them up in “lingerie,” and parade them down a runway and all it does is produce the visual equivalent of whisky dick.

    i like griffin products, and i love the iphone, but i’ve already got 27 other cases for the thing, all with one cool feature. actually, i have one case, it’s rubber and it does nothing. well, it protects, but it sure doesn’t have a zoom lense, or a battery life-extender, or a hand lotion dispenser. (go ahead, belkin. you can have that one.)

    aaaaaaaaaaah, babe. lucy clarkson, to be sure. she’s like the 18th incarnation of lara croft, not angelina jolie, and not in any movies starring angelina jolie. sooooo, i don’t know. just go with it. the world is going to heck in a grocery bag, but lucy is not letting it get her down. she’s got important topless tanning, lounging, diving, and showering to do. and who are we not to photograph it?

    get a load of the tourist checking her out in the shower. his wife is just like, “let’s go, henry! eyes forward!!!”

    omg how creeptacular is that picture?! funny part: i’ve never been scared by a black and white movie, but black and white pictures? whole other story. but this is manageable scary. also i love these segues (and links):

    “i started my flickr account as a low-key way of promoting my opium museum website, which is in turn a low-key way of promoting my book the art of opium antiques.”

    damn. that’s a whole lotta zombies right there! vampires i get, zombies not so much. i mean, you’re dead, and you’re personality is gone, and you’re just getting ugly and stinkier by the second. who wants that? on top, if you over exert yourself it’s libel to fall off, so you’re also a leper. a hungry hungry leper. but besides that, totally! zombies rule!!!

    not sure if i’m late to this party or what but holy cow elettra rossellini wiedemann is a perfect specimen. and italian lingerie line yamamay agrees with us. for the later-to-the-party-than-thou, elettra is isabella rossellini’s daughter and her face and body are total sneak attacks. she has this very all-american pretty plain girl look but then WHAMMO! what just happened and why are my pants so tight? exactly.

    i usually just turn to drugs alcohol and netflix, (cheap and easily procured!) but apparently, there are a number of all “natural” ways to stay high and keep those pesky suicidal thoughts to a minimum. just listing them will make you laugh outloud (which is one of the ways!) , so times online provides a little bullshit paragraph to break up the absurdity.

    remember that tour they did back in the late 90’s where it cost like a billion dollars a night and everybody hated the songs and the pomp, pop, and drama of the whole thing? part 2. no, i’m kidding. actaully, the idea of bono scoring a comic book musical sounds like a perfect match. there’s almost an inherent stage presence and direction built into the lyrics of most u2 songs. .. i’m going to see it. one ticket sold. there. only 40 million more to go!
