Clothing swap?

I wanna do one.

I want to clear out my closet of stuff I don't wear, and see if anyone else would find use out of some of it.

I also was thinking of starting up an ebay store or something.

Maybe this would be a chance to get some sewing projects going....

tattoos the day!

Pictures once it's done and pretty like.

I should probably do a proper photoshoot showcasing my tattoos one day, while I still have the body I do. Then one day many years away I'll show them off the photos to my grandkids and scar them for life:)

Freja et le loup

Overall I would have to say that this is a great photo-shoot; Terry Richardson, Freja Beha, taxidermy, how can you go wrong? But seriously, this photo in a win:

Why yes, I actually have been on THIS street, looking up at THIS view of the Eiffel Tower.

Yes I am lucky to have been able to travel. Yes I am in slight debt. Yes, I will do it again.

Candide has been providing me with a lot of pretty black and whites to oggle lately, especially the ones with the bikes:

and of people on bikes (in my daydreams this is me and a certain someone):


Tomorrow I'm gonna go and have a chatskie with Gerry and Colin about my next tattoo.

Some days I wish men and women still dressed like this. Which is probably why, some days, I do.

Proenza Schouler Fall 2010:

Dark, flowing, dynamic.

Yes, I would gladly wear this collection:

Miep Gies

BY HER own account, Miep Gies did nothing extraordinary. All she did was bring food, and books, and news—and, on one fabulous day, red high-heeled shoes—to friends who needed them. It was nothing dramatic. But she also bought eight people time, and in that time one of her charges—a teenage girl called Anne Frank, the recipient of the shoes—wrote a diary of life in the “Annexe”. In these four rooms, above the office of Anne’s father, Otto, where Mrs Gies worked as a secretary, eight Jews hid for 25 months in Amsterdam in 1942-44.

On the warm summer evening when the Franks went into hiding, Mrs Gies took charge. In subsequent months she and her trusty bicycle often carried so many bags of vegetables, bought with forged coupons, that she looked like a pack mule. No one suspected.

You should know that I have a thing for naked girls with images projected onto their body comme ca:

Nicholas Kirkwood

Vero and Marnie forwarded me a link to this beautiful pair of open-toe sling backs by Kirkwood up for auction on Ebay for $800. I've been placing bids, but seeing as there is automatically a person outbidding me by about $1 I feel like the owner is trying to get his money worth outta me; and as much as these call to me I'm not so sure I'm ready to give up that much money.

suits the mood

I like graveyards.

I also like the photo's my friend Kelsey takes:

by k. burns


Apparently I'm a little late on the news, and yes it is all over the blogosphere etc, but I really am saddened to hear that such a talented man has passed away.

My condolences to his family and friends.

I think Vero is completely right, media today puts so much emphasis on the deaths of celebrities nowadays. Especially it seems, within the past couple of years. It seems silly for me to say this considering I'm blogging about it, but I hope that McQueen's family is being spared the media frenzy.

I feel like making myself a lamp modeled after this one:

Sunday, February 7, 2010


Tomorrow my lovely man and I have decided to have a productive evening of making delicious food followed by eating said food, followed by sewing and fixing up some clothing. This is good because I a) need the motivation to get some of my projects going, and b) because I like feeling productive, and if I can do it alongside someone so wonderful it is a pleasurable bonus.

All together, I feel rather productive regardless. Today I printed off $60 worth of photos from 2004 until now. Mostly of traveling adventures, but also some photographic evidence of my having a university life. Printing these photos was followed by beginning (finally) my travel scrap book. I don't have too much to complete now, it's just a matter of sitting down and doing it...kinda like doing my sewing projects.

ANYWAY, my sewing goals are:

goodness gracious...

Miss D you make my heart go pitter patter.


I realize that I tend to picture post mostly naked women...and it's not that I don't appreciate the male body, because I most certainly do. But women are just so amazing. Honestly.


Today I bought myself a new camera! This is exciting because a) this is a long overdue purchase, and b) it ended up being 20 bones less then what it was advertised at! WIN!
Now I will potentially be adding more pictures of life in the land of Robyn, but I suppose ultimately that depends on how busy I get.

PS: My co-op employers have asked that I stay for the summer. Imma gonna do it.

We are overwhelmed by sexual images in commercials, art, and pornography, and you might think that the increasing number of images would indicate that we’re moving away from puritanism and towards more positive attitudes towards sex. But in reality, the great mass of those images in all three realms tell us one thing: ‘Sex feels good, but it’s not for you. You’re too fat, too skinny, too old, too poor, your tits or cock aren’t big enough, you don’t stay hard long enough. Sex is for the elite.’

Pretty sure I'm a fan of almost all of the alternate covers done for Love magazine. Especially Lara and Daria's:


Soon people will no longer have to interact with one another in order to find an intimate partner. Fuck that, why go through all the awkward interactions when you can just go out and buy a $7000 sex-bot?

found over here

Also: how many of you out there think there is a male sex-bot on the market? I suggest you read the Globe and Mail's article Romancing the Robot for an idea on the matter. And by idea, I mean one guy's suggestion that by 2050 men and women will be jumping at the idea of having sex with a robot.

When did sex with a human being become unappealing or...less appealing??

J'ai Tue Ma Mere


I would recommend everyone go see it.

The turbulent relationship between a mother and a son unfolds with a compelling combination of savage fury and melting affection in I Killed My Mother. A stunning, semi-autobiographical tour de force from writer/director/producer/performer Xavier Dolan, it is a film with the sting of shrewdly observed truth. (source)

...I don't get it...

Once again found over at Ish's blog:

Models backstage at Fashion Week in Sao Paulo. (source)

Important to remember, in the ongoing war between Camp “Unrealistic expectations for female bodies!” and Camp “It’s a model’s job to be thin!” that there are real women working who could very well drop dead in the middle of the debate on how to regulate the industry standard.

There is naturally skinny and then there is mad dieting (or exercising), not eating, taking nutrient tablets and purging skinny. I have friends in the modeling world, and not one of them will deny the crazy world of maintaining the "ideal" weight and are quite happy to be out of it (for those that are).

What I don't get is why there are so many girls out there who idolize these models or other thin celebrities (who may be naturally that skinny, but then...they only represent something like 4% of the worlds women) and then go on to begin thinspiration blogs and monitor their weight online for all the world to see. Body dysmorphia is a serious thing, and by making an individuals struggle with their weight and personal confidence something that is so public I feel like we're taking away from this illness and reinforcing this destructive behaviour.

I know, I's a little idealistic of me to wish that everyone could just be happy with their bodies, but seriously. This stuff is going just a little too far. I love studying societies and behaviours, but god it can be depressing.

Graphic anti-abortion ad to air on Kelowna TV station — controversy expected

...well duh:
"A graphic anti-abortion ad featuring images of the severed body part of a fetus is set to run Monday on a Kelowna television station. The 60-second ad, titled “Everyone Against Abortion, Please Raise Your Hand,” depicts an image of an adult hand holding the severed hand of a fetus… Marlon Bartram, executive director of Kelowna Right to Life, said he was told the body part came from a Texas abortion clinic."

Found over at Ish's blog, who has this to say:
Putting aside for the moment the hideousness of this prospect, is anyone else perplexed by the ethics of an organization that is horrified by the idea of “killing babies” but doesn’t have a problem mutilating the corpses of those dead “babies” in question for the purpose of shock advertising?

I mean, it’s a little hard to get behind the premise that they really care about human rights and the lives of “innocent babies” when they’re chopping up their bodies for a TV spot.
