whats with today T O D A Y ?



i just feel it. today is an empire records day.

i want to drink a ton of coffee, dress 90’s, act like a brooding complicated teen and listen to good music (currently listening to talk talk).

maybe this is all coming on because i decided last night, with my best friend, that at the age of 28 we should get our ears pierced for the first time.

today today

what is with today today? tell me lucas.

if you haven’t seen this movie and have no clue what i am talking about quit your job and watch this now!

what the hell were you doing with your teenage life?!

the characters are superb and you know someone from your real life that is each one of these characters.

coyote shivers

i mean it had coyote  shivers…. that should be enough.

i really am not even going to ruin this movie if you haven’t seen it yet so just go see it and start learning about good clothes, good art ( “i don’t have to explain my art to you”) (hahaha),  and good music .


if i could just spend today at a job in a record store with attractive people who don’t really ever “work”.

shopping list:

light blue fuzzy sweater

plaid mini pleated skirt

(already have combat boots and red bra)

more coffee…..




a friend of mine surprised me a couple fridayz ago and i didn’t know what to expect… because it was a surprise.

so naturally i got really stressed out till the day came and i was still stressed out.

good thing this friend knows me. the surprise turned out to be great. she had got us tickets to see

takashi murakami’s first film jellyfish eyes at the ace theatre in downtown la.

BLAH ACE     ace2

the theatre was beautiful, you just have to go see it yourself obviously my really high tech iPhone 4 for some reason didn’t get those really nice high res photos it usually takes.


pretty much it is a super cute movie and if you are a fan of

japanese films, sailor moon, godzilla, pokemon,or digimon you will enjoy this film.

i automatically fell in love with the little boy in the film and his new found friend who loves to eat chee-kama (cheese-and-fish-cake sticks).

it was very much about the March 2011 earthquake and the nuclear disaster and you can sense that throughout the film.

i wouldn’t say its an amazing movie but i will say its sweet, fun, and visually entertaining… and for me for “cult” type film reasons i thought it was awesomely bad but in that great way.

so see it for yourself because a lot of people in that theatre who were very “la film type cool kids people’ kinda hated it.

ace m

my friend diane, murakami, and i

he had a cute hat with the main character Kurage-bo (Jellyfish Boy) on his head.

ahhhh so cute slash so talented as an artist so i was confused on wether to hug or just stare!

watch the trailer here: J E L L Y F I S H E Y E S


sometime this last week i went out to a late showing of only lovers left alive.

i still can’t stop thinking about it.

the cinematography: perfect

dark and light

there are long shots of tilda swinton and tom hiddleston driving at night and beautiful shots of tilda walking in tangier at night (quite original seeing as mostly artists talk about the light in morocco.)

the costume/styling: leather gloves… ok just perfect

raybans hair

adam played by tom wears black gloves and eve played by tilda in white gloves and they both rock amazing everyday wear like leather jackets and ray bans. Also, the opening shot of tilda she is in this amazing vintage kimono type robe that i would murder someone for… seriously.

tilda robe

the hair: more than perfect (need tilda swinton’s hair in this film)


OK but getting back to the movie/story/point it was another amazing mood movie like marie antoinette. a movie you can have constantly playing because its always a great shot and the movie’s soundtrack is everything… really the movie is about the music. adam is this music genius and he struggles with it throughout the film.

YES its about vampires but not really… not in how a vamp film nowadays goes where they glitter and are soooo boring and not very intelligent.

tilda’s character is full of life and joy learning everything she can from books and the years she spent on the earth. my favorite scene is when she calls these mushrooms by their scientific names and talks to them like they can hear her but in such sweet young childlike way.

ok i don’t know what else to tell you to convince you its one of those great films you have to not only see but own so you can repeatedly cult like watch it.


new shopping list:

kimono vintage

ray bans :wayfarers

vintage long stem liquor glass

white gloves

ticket to morocco

and a ton of hair bleach
