I love going to City Council meetings. No, not because I’m so interested in the politics and voting. I go because the open-mic policy means that there’s always some raving lunatic going on and on about something. Like this young woman in Santa Cruz, California, where Amelia went to school. (Coincidence?) What exactly is she trying to say? She wants healthy pesticides? And people can “make things cars?” And, apparently, she thinks we here on the East Coast are still in the Civil War era — because we have slaves? And the West Coast is for the Union? Also, growing food is free? And you can put things in the freezer, and they last forever? Trust me, just watch. It’s that good. Keep reading »
If you were to take a peek into our shower, you’d see loads of body gel cluttering the shower shelves, various cheapie drugstore shampoo and conditioner bottles, and one half-busted, grimy shower radio. Seriously, the thing is a petri dish for the green-black mold that we hope and pray isn’t slowly killing us with every get-clean session. (Not to mention, it’s from The Sharper Image circa 2005—no wonder that company shuttered all its stores!) Seeing that it’s a radio on its last legs, we’ve been dying for a newer, sleeker version. Behold: a very incognito shower radio (the “bottle” on the left in the photo) by Muji. We want. We need. [about $37, Muji] Keep reading »

We even caught a glimpse of her at Dior’s couture show, in a way. How to get the look, after the jump! Keep reading »
Reebok showcases the Top Down model in its latest offerings paying tribute to Jean-Michel Basquiat, the famous NYC street artist of the ’80s and ’90s. The sneakers feature several of Basquiat’s signature, Neo-expressionist paintings on turquoise ($99.56) and black/white ($113.78) backgrounds. They’re part of the fall 2009 collection but are already available at Colette. I’m not sure I’d wear these — I’m not a b-girl, you know — but I’d surely enjoy having these on a shelf as art.

The drama of Erin Andrews, the ESPN sports reporter filmed naked in a hotel room by a Peeping Tom, just keeps getting sicker. Gawker snagged a clip of Bill O’Reilly actually showing part of the nude video of Andrews on “The O’Reilly Factor” last night. They blurred out Andrews’ private parts, but still. Don’t harangue about how depraved and disturbing the Peeping Tom (who may have been a co-worker of Andrews’) and then show the clip yourself. It’s called hypocrisy.

Ahh, oui, gay Pareeee, citeee of l’amour where we Parisiens smoke les cigarettes and drink ze wine all day is, how you say? Bohémien?
