Poor Little Rich Girls, blah blah blah....
You know- I find the whole Paris Hilton thing to be a thumping bore, despite my inordinate fondness for celebrity gossip,- and I just realized that I've already BEEN obsessed with a platinum blonde, super skinny, vacant eyed, glamour puss heiress socialite before- 60's Warhol superstar Edie Sedgewick! When I was 16 I was totally enamoured with Edie, thinking her the most facinating and glamourous thing that ever walked the earth. I carried her biography around with my like a goddamn bible, watched "Ciao Manhattan" numerous times, even made myself a Edie T-shirt in my art class in high school. She had silver blonde hair, chandelier earrings, tons of black eyeliner,and lived in black leotards, and was a muse of ANDY WARHOL fer chrissakes...I tried to look like her as much as I possibly could. I found her tragic and exotic (as did any good hipster chick worth her salt as I later discovered). Eventually I came to think of her as slightly pathetic (she was a hyper insecure drug addict who died at 28, I believe) and moved on to other "goddesses"...but I do think Paris should ramp it up a notch and find a hot artist to hang out with constantly. Paris and Damian Hirst! Now that's what I'm talking about.

Vogue Is Good For Something After All...
I have an old issue which documents the super sexy house owned by Joe Corre (son of Vivienne Westwood) which is a gorgeous punk palace. In a teeny picture I was captivated by a piece of art they had- a Carlo Mollino photograph...I'll have you know I spent an hour googling on the net so I could bring you this...

The thing is- this must be a proto image of a later photograph- which was more mystical and dark goddess-y. Nice little gallery here.
Cleanse Your Orbital Palate....
Whew- did you read that last post's pinworm link? DISGUSTING, eh? Thank god there are cute kittens to look at after a horrible experience like that...
I've Got You Under My Skin
Since I haven't done a wierd animal fact post lately, today's lesson shall be on "Pinworms and You"....did you know this nemotoad is one of the most infectious parasites there is in many countries (including North America)? Pinworms and the facts of thier infestation are highly disgusting. Do not read before lunch! In fact- you probably don't want to read about this at all! (Bonus-they have pics!)

I've been lurking on this LJ community called "Dark Pin Up Girls" Most of the pix aren't so great- but some are really inspired and very fun. I love that any girl these days can turn herself into a pin up, and a pin up that SHE finds attractive. The very best though- are the ones where the gal has taken the shot of herself with a digital camera, and has totally done her makeup and hair, and is saucily pouting into the camera, but then you see the dirty laundry lying on the floor in the backround...heh heh heh.
