{ Panda Furries }

Let me apologize for the reblogging of this post, but I just had to share. This is so bizzare and funny to me! First off Scientists have to wear furries for the release of pandas into the wild, and secondly, does anyone else find it sad they couldn't get proper carriers for the pandas? it looks like those are just rubbermaid containers... like the one I keep my Christmas decorations in, except these have four holes drilled into it... poor poor panda... {via}

and of course in my absence on the blog, I've collected a few really beautiful sites I'd love to share!

  • Saks in the City - Fashion blogs are a dime a dozen, but with Saks I found a real girl trying to make it in the really big city (Paris), and she is doing it all while looking great and sharing her secrets. I know, as I have never been petite in size, fashion and even just drooling over fashion is hard. There is never anything that fits just right, and while there have been great advances in the ...dare I say it... Plus Size World, It's still hard to find someone to really identify with, but Saks is great! wearing things I would wear, and not at all feel weird about wearing them.
  • Isle of Tune - a great little time waster. This site lets you make roads and houses and plant trees and lights in a city of your dreams, but to car driving music. wait.... does that make sense? It's like Sim city, but as you let your cars drive around it plays music based off where you placed your houses and stuff... It's really cute and fun! and I'm just loving the MJ Beat It city!
  • Google Body - Now you can be an anatomy perv! Google just recently launched Google Body! an 'Google Earth' for the body. I know I'm not the only one who zoomed in on the genital, right?
  • Missed Connections - You know those great posts on Craigslist, Missed Connections? Well this clever artist is making up some great illustrations to go along with those missed out love ones. 

{ Head Thumping Vol.2 }

Remember Volume 1? well if not here's what's been thumping in my head lately...

Oh Land - a Copenhagen lady making beautiful electronic experimental music. Is it just me, or what is up with these fabulous foreign ladies rocking out? Think Robyn, Little Boots, and Lykke Li (maybe similar... the accent, the drum playing and even the cape)? Well, Oh Land isn't any different.. not that it's a bad thing, but I'm loving her live version of Son of a Gun, and the balloons and motion lighting is pretty rad too!

Broken Bells - James Mercers (of the Shins) and DJ Danger Mouse are pretty fabulous combination! In perfect Shins-esque fashion, the tune, October is haunting.

*sorry for the youtube vids. I don't yet have mp3's for these goodies. Enjoy!

{ Holiday Gift Guide I }

Gotham City Ring
for the DC-comic-loving-woman in your life... or me, if you're feeling extra generous. nOir, a jewelry company is designing glam for the comic book lover in your love life. Not too pricey with pieces ranging from $50-250, I'm a personal fan of the Gotham City ring or the cat woman claw ring. What do you think? I'm sure it'll make that nerd love ya even more!

{ Honeysuckle: 2011 Color of the Year }

Be sure to bookmark this handy guy! It's a nice departure from this year's Turquoise. I anticipate a lot great sites and graphics and fashion next year in this color. Are you excited about it? {via}

{ A Little Behind }

So I just realized, even though work hasn't been bad, I've completely neglected you. My last post was on my birthday, and it's almost been a whole damn month of my silence, and for that I apologize. I'll update you on my skinny...

I've seen a few movies, some worth high praise and other not so much.
Easy A - I heard good things, and I even heard these things from people I trusted with good taste. But alas, it was a total disappointment. I don't think awesome amounts of drinking or drugs could have made this bearable. I mean, it had it's moments, but I think first off it could have been half the length! I sort of got the idea of what it would be about from the previews, Dawson's Creek talking highschooler (Emma Stone) starts spreading rumors she's a skank, and it get way way way out of hand... I mean, not a bad premise, but that's about it. Overall... I'd say a .....55%

Black Swan - On the other hand, this proved almost as good as the rumors I had heard. I would say there was way more touching screens then I thought, but it added a nice uncomfortable-ness to film. Beth (played by Winona Ryder) ... whom I had no idea was even in the film ... was a fantastic character. Somehow, with all my hectic-ness and crazy life it's nice to see someone else on the edge of a break down. What I really enjoyed were the small, maybe just 1 second worth of crazy, Natalie Portman's Character, Nina, would see... I really had to question my eyes, and it helped me relate to her more. While I would say I did enjoy Requiem for a Dream more, Arnoffsky did a brilliant job at leaving me gasping and wanting more......91%

I also recently got my hair did. I've been super broke... I know, we all are this time of year, and signed up to be on the mailing list for SuperCuts Training Class. Normally I don't think I'd even consider getting a hair cut there... not that I'm snobby, but I am really partial to Lox, but I guess because these new trainees are more scrutinized during the training class than once they get their day to day job, my girl, Kaytee (or whatever her name was) did a FABULOUS job! think Posh Spice but slightly longer and with a heavy bang. It's cute and I'll try to get a picture up after I shower today... It's a little dis-shelved right now.

I think that's about it, I've been to Chattanooga, and I think I'm heading back this weekend... for the holidays, but there isn't too much going on there.... I've been making websites, but mostly for friends for gifts, so posts once they are up and running! Oh and all my new graphic making has been on my new computer! it was a birthday gift, and it still rocking my world. And speaking of birthdays, I did have a lil' shindig, which of course things got too rowdy to remember to take pictures! But really I've just been spending too much time with King Bean and his clan (yes, my lil sensitive male kitty is now being referred to as King Bean, but it's only fitting... he does rule the roost).
