So, what do you say Doc?

I wonder if there is a diagnosis for those who litterary can't stand living in a world as it looks today? If one gets headache and skin rash from the modern advertisement, fashion, values and beauty standards (just to name a few things that bothers me)?

If so, I thinkI have a serious dash of that condition....

Kustom Kar Kommandos

My household has just been blessed with a new box set of movies made by the legendary film maker Kenneth Anger.
If you like anything retro, underground movies, hot rods or just plain kitsch, you must have a look at this wounderful short film.
It's called "Kustom Kar Kommando" (1965).
If there is anything called hot rod porn, this would be it.

It's camp, it's beautiful and very, very stylish.

Moan for Joan....

I got a new fashion icon: the truly gorgeous and stunning Joan Holloway (Christina Hendricks) from the tv-show "Mad Men". It takes place in New York in the early 1960's and I love how well they have captured everything from hair to clothes and interial design.
And for Joan....well, she's got it all: a killer figure, wit and amazing style. Just take a look at her!

And this is what I would look like if I was a part of the cast....( I wish!)

What I Will Try To Achieve In 2010

* Work as much as possible with things I like, such as writing

* Visit Rascal Kosher again

* Keep a higher maintenance, wear red lipstick as often as possible and spoil myself more

* Do everything I can to keep healthy and excersise at least a couple of times a week

* Don't let some days pass just by without having done at least a few things I really enjoy, such as read a book, watch a movie or write something

* Be helpful to others and always be very polite (this is something I already am, but I want to keep myself that way). I think everything you do to others comes back to you.

* Try to be as honest and straight to myself as possible, do the right thing

* Get out more, meet people and don't be too self-conscious
