Photobucket have the best new magazines and art/photography books around


I do not know what I would do without my mac or the internet. I don't even remember life before the internet. Was there life on earth? Did I actually exist before the the internet came? For all I know we all started to live when the internet hit the planet.
Well, maybe I'm overreacting a tiny bit. But seriously, modern technology is so incredible.
But anyway, today I bought this amazing curly lamb fur coat on sale for half the price (HURRAY) and i'm going to invest in some Azzedine Alaia and Ann Demeulemeester boots next month (june). It will look SO well together.

Today I bought these two amazing pieces from Colette in Paris.
the sunglasses were a bit expensive but the hairclip wasn't + it's a great substitute for those incredible hats he made for Giles SS 08 show. You can get it all and much more on

Sunglasses for Rodarte by Linda Farrow

Hairclip by Stephan Jones


So I've been searching for new interesting books for a while now and I've found one that I bought today;
"Veronica decides to die" by Paulo Coelho. And I also just found out that they are currently making a movie based on the book which is going to be released in 2009.
Veronika, who leads a seemingly perfect life, lives in Ljubljana, Slovenia. She decides to commit a premeditated suicide by ingesting too many sleeping pills. While she waits for her death, she decides to read a magazine.
After seeing an article in the magazine which wittily asks "Where is Slovenia?," she decides to write a letter to the press justifying her suicide, the idea being to make the press believe that she has killed herself because people don't even know where Slovenia is. Her plan fails and she wakes up in Villete, a mental hospital in Slovenia, where she is told she has a week to live.

ok, I admit it. I am a real geek.
I saw the helvetica movie for the first time yesterday.
hadnt gotten around to it before,
and I loved it.

I love typography,
I love graphic design.
(although I am aware, one cant really tell judging by this blog.. :)

I stumbled upon this page, whose graphic design I absolutely adore.
I love the concept of the page allthought I am not sure I agree and that it works properly yet.
some of the things scoring high are straight up ugly.

anyhow. the page who has won all-time prettiest is one called
I dont agree it is the prettiest/best designed one, but darned is it nice with all those pretty typography.

I am not so up to date when it comes to what is hot in typography,
but I really really like the one called DTL Nobel in big letters.

(sorry for the poor photo quality. I don't have a scanner so just took photos with a poor digital camera)

This is one of my favorite I-D Magazine issues; It's from August 2005 and it was a whole issue dedicated to street style.




Model: Gemma Ward

I don't know from where these photos are from (most likely year '07 cos of the Dolce&Gabbana feather dress from the FW 07/08 collection. But I don't know which magazine) but I think they're beautiful and this is what my new hair is gonna look like. I have decided to colour my hair black. And when it gets a bit longer I'll get it like this. A short bob.

divine remix and the eurovision contest

ahh.. this is such a wonderful remix.
and the guys who remixed it, midnight juggernauts (yet another wonderful australian band), are going to the hove festival that I wrote about earlier.. I am so excited about that festival. the lineup is amazing.

with the courtesy of I borrowed this:
Midnight Juggernauts remix of Sebastian Telliers - Divine

I voted for Sebastian Tellier on saturday, and I had a wonderful time watching the melody grand prix (eurovision) song contest.
it was wonderful mostly because of the company I was with, and I haven't hanged out watching tv in several years (no kidding. I dont have a tv). but it was also a wonderful evening because of some funny elements in the show itself.

1. the swedish tv reporter who were to give the results from sweden.

2. sebastian tellier

3. the spanish song (hmm.. now that I found the english subtitles I am not so sure anymore really..)

4. the boasnia song (what is up with hanging up clothes?)

5. the guy who was skating around in the russian song (!)

-the azerbaijan song with the angelwings and all,
-the finnish song; just because
-the latvian song: because of the pirate-theme they had going there.

nice: norway came in 5.

I dont like the song much, and very much not the girl who made it and wrote it (mira craig) who I had the "pleasure" of meeting when I was working in the sushi restaurant in iceland. I cant remember exactly what she said other than that it was utterly silly. I was in iceland and hadn't really heard of her, she therefore started to explain to me how famous she was in norway and how famous she was going to be other places in the world, and she was basically: bragging! I am not too impressed by bragging and therefore found it a little painful to talk to her. after she came home from iceland, where she had recorded a musicvideo, she played a show in norway, stagedived and no one was there to hold her, so she got severely hurt. poor thing. (this is not ironic. I actually felt really sorry for her when I heard about it.)

the stagedive:

the musicvideo she made in iceland which I am not the biggest fan of:

photo of the day (beware:long post)

Jamie Livingston (25 October 1956-25 October 1997) was a New York-based photographer, film-maker and circus performer who from March 31, 1979 through to the day of his death on October 25, 1997 took a Polaroid photograph every day.
Livingston's 'Polaroid a Day' photographic diary started at Bertelsmann Campus Center at Bard College and though some photos have gone missing from the collection, 6,697 Polaroids remain. The collection, dated in sequence, has been organized by his friends Hugh Crawford and Betsy Reid into an exhibit at Bard College called "JAMIE LIVINGSTON. PHOTO OF THE DAY: 1979-1997", which opened in 2007.


I have been surfing around on the page now for quite a while, looking through the personal everyday pictures of someone I don't know. I downloaded some to upload here because the page is suffering from bad bandwith. it keeps crashing because it cant hold the amount of people who visit it. I sure hope they will fix it soon. but sillily of me I cant remember the dates of the pictures I downloaded. it is much more fun when you can see the year and date.

some of the pictures are missing, but not really that many. mostly in the beginning.. I decided to check out what he was doing the day I was born. I thought to myself, hah, it would be so typical if the picture from that day was missing. (there were nearly no other pictures from that time missing), and of course it was. missing! hopefully you will have more luck when looking for what he was doing that perticular day in time you came to the world.

his pictures are funny, beautiful, quirky, and to say the least, interesting! it kind of appeals to the big brother instinct in me.
to be able to see what someone did every single day for 18 years. days who so quickly are mixed together in ones memory will for him be so detailedly described. it'll be like. "hmmm.. what did i do the 25. may in 1992?" and he can look at the polaroid and it'll be like: "right! that was the day when we went to "nameofplacegoeshere" and Ryan put on that helmet and he told this joke while inside the helmet, and I remember we were laughing so much about it.." (I am making up here.. but you get my point)

I also find his pictures of the tv quite amusing. he likes baseball a lot.

some other ones I liked:

towards the end they become very sad as he is in the hospital right before he dies from cancer at the age of 41. (I didn't include any of those here but have a look for yourself) there is even a picture from the day he died. I haven't dared to look at it yet.

here is the link to the website, be patient, I think they will fix the bandwidth soon.
