Natchez Fish Mart, Natchez Mississippi

I adore black and white photography. Why does decay in the South always look more romantic than elsewhere?

Barong Dancer - Ubud, Bali

Barong Dancer - Ubud, Bali, originally uploaded by paddysat.

This is the coolest shot- love her headdress, as well as the light in the picture....

Oh, not smart. NOT SMART.

Cheryl is by no means my fav Girls Aloud (i.e. not Sarah or Kim), but wow. WOW. She's gonna have her husband roasted over a pit. Slowly. As she should.

Chezza'll cut a bitch. And his little dog, too.

Pop star Cheryl, 24, vowed never to forgive the England footballer after hearing about his seedy sex session. A source said the furious Girls Aloud singer yelled at her husband: “How could you humiliate me like this in front of everyone?”In her rage, she ordered him to pack his bags, saying: “Get out. It’s over - you’ve ruined it all.” Feisty Cheryl - who warned a year ago that she would leave her hubby if he cheated - later told a friend: “I can’t believe he has done this to me. He has ruined everything.”

Cashley is toast. TOAST.


Their first album was dinner party music, the second dinner party music for swingers,and the third an electro glam stomp-y thing. Why not folk for the fourth?
I love me some Goldfrapp- and not just because we have 'Supernature' and 'Black Cherry' on constant rotation at the shop... And Alison just rules.

"People expected me to be this pop dominatrix all the bloody time, and I got quite uncomfortable with that in the end. If I turned up at an aftershow party without my costume on, for instance, people would gasp at me in horror, and that isn't nice. I mean, we weren't creating a person, we were dramatising the music. But suddenly, without me even wanting it, I became part of this trashy magazine world where everyone's too thin or too fat or too old if they're past 25, where everything's WRONG! RIGHT! WRONG! I mean, I don't go strutting around the house in my bloody horse tail shouting 'How ya doing, London?' at the neighbours, do I?" She shrugs. "Thank God that this time, the emphasis is elsewhere."

I love this girl

Adele, the hotly-tipped singer from north LDN, is freaking hilarious. A hell of a singer, and has the proper favorite out of GA. Well done, honey.

Indeed, satirical pop website nailed it when they observed that Adele looked as if she had an 81 per cent ability of winning a pub brawl and a 50 per cent chance of slagging off Girls Aloud. "Oh no, I love Girls Aloud!," she squeals. "Especially that Sarah Harding girl, she's so pretty. And she likes a drink, too. Ha, ha. No, I would never slag them off. I would blatantly win a bar brawl, though. I'm big boned, me. And I drink Stella, so I'm a good beater."

and this is so cute. Awwww.....

"After the show, I planned to walk past Paul McCartney. But he pulled me aside and said, `I really enjoyed you tonight and I'm looking forward to hearing more stuff from you'," she grins. "And I was like, `fnnarsmoorsmackle', tripping over my words. I acted like a right ********! But he was the most starstruck I've ever got. Because he's a Beatle."

Um, I wanna go!


The soundtrack to my college experience- Stevie Wonder, Buffett and Billy. Sheryl as well... And holy crap- Cassandra AND Diana? And the Rev. Al Green? AND Randy Newman? Wow! Also, Tim is fantastic in concert.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Stevie Wonder has not performed at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival in 35 years, and has never headlined the event. Organizers want to change that this year. Wonder was scheduled to headline the second weekend of the 2008 Jazz Fest along with Billy Joel, Sheryl Crow and Louisiana native and country music star Tim McGraw, festival promoter Quint Davis said Thursday in announcing the lineup. Joel, Crow and McGraw are all festival first-timers.

Today in stupidity

Gallows were to play Disneyland? *snort*

Gallows were due to support California punk monarchs Social Distortion at a concert venue located in Disneyland, California, yesterday, but were removed from the bill due to offence taken to their lyrics by the family-friendly Walt Disney Company.


Despite banning Gallows from the Magic Kingdon, Disney have not, as of yet, explicitly ruled out using the band's collaboration with Lethal Bizzle on the soundtrack of their next instalment of The Lion King.

I very rarely

wish misfortune upon others*, but I sincerely hope that anyone involved with the Westboro Baptist Church's protest at Heath's funeral develops a debilitating facial tick and uncontrollable Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

WWJD? Not protest at fucking funerals...

*because I believe in a thing called KARMA

Waiting to go...

Waiting to go..., originally uploaded by mutenostrilsyndrome.

I wish I was here. Would be much preferrable to freezing my arse off.

I am so glad

that Chuck is going after these assholes.

— Hinn’s salary is somewhere between $500K and a million dollars per year.
— he has a $10 million seaside mansion
— he owns a private jet with annual operating costs of about $1.5 million (this is what is being replaced by Dove One)
— and he drives a Mercedes SUV and convertible, valued at about $80,000 each. (He may have traded up by now.)

My weekend

One of the many benefits (*snort*) of working retail for my mom is the bi-annual trip to Chicago for gift show, where we stay at a posh hotel downtown, and eat/drink our weight in "free"* food/booze. We also do a fair amount of personal shopping- both at gift show and on Michigan Ave.

Before we get to the loot bit, may I say that if one is ever in Chicago, and desires the best steak EVER, get thee to Bistro 110. Order the steak frites. Mmmmmm.....

As I am attempting to start saving money for the first time in my life, I was operating on a limited budget. However, I managed to acquire some cool-ass shit.

This Beijo Bag-

-A sign from Danielson Designs that says "Showgirl Entrance"

-Set of jars from Midwest Of Cannon Falls that have skulls on the lids (intended for Halloween, but I'm going to use them for everyday)

-Print from Art In Motion of a chandelier with some French words in the background. Because I can't speak French, so I'll let the funky music do the talking..... sorry about that.

-Nars blusher in 'Orgasm'

-Philosophy lippie in 'Melon Daiquiri'

-EP from The Libs for 'What Became Of The Likely Lads'

-The DVD for 'Up The Shambles' by my beloved Babyshambles

-These Chuck Taylors- I got these for 8 bucks at the Gap! (Didn't like the slip-on look, so took a seam ripper to them today and made them into lace-ups)

Believe me, this is positively RESTRAINED from my usual consumer indulgence.

*"free" is in parentheses because my mom drops an awful lot of cash at these places. They should make us chubby and get us drunk.

Dior Haute Couture

Not so sure about the styles, but the colors are spectacular.

Coachella looks likely

The Verve, Rilo Kiley, Hot Chip, Rev and The Makers, Love And Rockets, Jamie T, and Enter Shikari? NICE.

Oh, and Pink Floyd. Woot.

...They'll join The Verve, The Raconteurs, Rilo Kiley and My Morning Jacket at the ninth annual festival, set to take place April 25-27 at the Empire Polo Field in Indio, California, as previously reported. Also on the bill are Hot Chip, The Streets, Jack Johnson, Cold War Kids, Enter Shikari, Metric, Death Cab For Cutie, Reverend And The Makers, Love & Rockets, The Bees, Jamie T, Vampire Weekend and Simian Mobile Disco, among others.

Gorgeous colors- almost looks like one of those damn Kinkaid "paintings."


It seems that Mr. Peter Doherty has a YouTube channel which showcases home videos of..... his kitties. Yes, Mr. Rock and Roll is a cat lady. Awwwwwwwww....
