futuristic fashion

I thought this article from the new york times about the rising popularity of futuristic fashion was pretty interesting. there are some pretty hilarious star trek outfits that I would love to see on real people. like this one:

fyi: the green hair is necessary to complete the look

to clarify, by “love” I mean laugh, point, and take a photo of them while they aren’t looking. personally, I think everyone should dress like the beastie boys from the “intergalactic” music video. who doesn’t look good in a white plastic jumpsuit tucked into yellow rubber boots? no one. that’s the answer. no one.

the best part of the whole article was a photo on the second page that showed how designers are emulating the great gazoo. HA!

four people were playing with swords in front of the deer park. I took the photo at great distance because I was scared.

my favorite arrested development scene. I just watched it again and HAD to post it.

pop culture maps

I like things represented in the form of  charts and maps. especially maps, because I am a nerd. and in times of boredom, I’ve actually created a mental map of the U.S. shaped by the location of various television shows. this is slightly embarrassing to relate, but whatever. I don’t know why I started this mental geographic process–perhaps as some strange mental workout, or perhaps so I have a back-up plan when this whole grad school thing doesn’t work out and I can create television shows that take place in north dakota or wyoming just for the hell of it.

finally, dan meth has done what I have had on my mindgrapes! here is a series of four awesome pop culture maps! hooray!

pope makes fashion statement

pope-benedict-saturno-hat

pope benedict wants all the priests out there to get a little more adventurous with their attire. I mean, I personally have been taking fashion tips from the pope since he was elected to the papacy. but of course, I subscribe to the “papal fashion updates” e-newsletter, so I’m always on the cutting edge.
