fashion industry confessions


What is this fickle relationship we have with Vogue? US edition specifically with yours truly, Anna Wintour as your editor-in-chief. We either love it or loathe it. None of that grey area shit. I stopped my monthly purchases out of annoyance. I didn't want to purchase a magazine that felt repetitive and comfortable. Same models, same designers and the same fucking photographers month to month. Including all these elitist articles about rich white upper-class bou-gee's. Am I right?

A friend, confidant and an all right bitch by my standards sent me a link to this. Fashion Industry Confessions. The hole of all glory holes in relation to fashion. A Tumblr (I don't even like Tumblr's!) about Karlie Kloss' eating disorder. I kid. Not. I just can't confirm it.

Be prepared to be on this Tumblr for hours. I suggest you steep some tea and scoop your favourite ice cream in a large bowl. Happy Thursday.

Rob Ford is out! That's old news now. Perry for Mayor!

ra ra riot


I had this amazing opportunity to see this band live at Molson a few years ago. This was prior to me moving in the city. This chance at seeing great bands failed dutifully to The EX. My previous friend and I had this idea that parking would be a breeze. Let me tell you - The fucking EX ruined my chance at seeing Ra Ra Riot, City and Colour and Tegan and Sara.

I cried emotionally as we drove away... (Just a few seconds).

I laugh now because I know that I could have easily parked in the city and could have briskly walked there within 30 minutes. Fool Perry, fool. A new opportunity and a small venue. Lee's Palace. 15 minutes of joyful walking from where I reside.

The babes have release a new track called Beta Love. Legal download for you right here friends! All you have to do is click here! Try it! Listen to it before the world ends because the release isn't until after.

I like to get my tickets at Rotate on Queen West.

pinback


A concert or $18 in my pocket? A difficult in choice in my mid-20's...

I remember the days of The O.C. when I first heard a single of theirs. I remember being a heterosexual and wanting to marry Rachel Bilson because she was super awesome and related so well to characters from The Valley. Those days of insecurity are long gone.

Pinback is playing tonight at Lee's Palace on Bloor. A brisk 15 minute walk from where I reside and in the aforementioned bubble of previous post. I am making a poor decision by not attending the concert. When am I going to see this band live?! On YouTube. I beat the system.

I totally would have rocked my new toque.

the row

Hey man, ladies-just don't bro me.

Pacific Row, this blog in my mind was created in May and now physically into the world of the Internets for all to envision. I had utilized my previous blog to incorporate the idea, but I felt it didn't have enough strength to move forward.

Pacific Row: A bubble in which I inhabit and therefore rarely exit. Let me give you a description of this bubble in which you probably live your daily lives in as well. Let's begin at going no farther east of Yonge. What is beyond the world east of Yonge? I know there's a No Frills in which I make an exception for and a few beaches and maybe a man along the way during the end of summer, but that is all. Going east is like, social suicide.

At Yonge we move north to Bloor. Beyond Bloor there is a friend who is an engineer and perhaps a good sushi restaurant, but you can find that at every corner. You have kids who are like probably exhibiting a Noxema commercial lifestyle or what at Yorkville.

The bubble barrier ends somewhere near Roncesvalles. Home to some clog artery delicious donuts and Parts and Labour. I don't often travel to Roncesvalles, but I'm definitely not opposed to it. That requires me to pay for the TTC which that I am opposed to.

I conclude this-how fucking busy was Cold Tea this summer?
