how's the weather?

I am baffled by what the weather must be like in NYC at the moment. I hear, from a trusted source, that it is stinking hot. But as I was perusing the stylesightings blog, I saw these images, presumably from the same day/week. I'm confused. I hope the weather isn't this varied when I go in November.. I won't know what to pack!

a force to be reckoned with

I have always loved Kate Winslet. Yep, always - even when she peed on herself in Holy Smoke. Her latest efforts in Harper's Bazaar have not changed my opinion.

please put your gaga away.

i think i'll tackle lady gaga, rip one of her huge, ridiculous accesories off her head/torso, and use it to make pants or at least some kind of loin cloth so i no longer have to look at images like this:

personally, my favourite 'why doesn't lady gaga wear pants?' quote comes from

"Yes. You're wearing a nude leotard -- presumably to give the impression that you're totally naked under that blazer -- but god forbid someone look at your FACE."

bligh's bridgebane blunder

Is it just me, or is Brisbane completely over-run by bridges? Since leaving the city to move to Sydney, the utter chaos that is "bridgebane" has become more and more apparent. Last time I flew into the city, looking out the window, I was not impressed by the view - it just looks messy. Don't get me wrong - I'm still fond of Brisbane, it has much to offer - it's just that the bridges no longer seem to be beneficial to the city.

The latest eye-sore is the Kurilpa bridge: a foot-bridge connecting the Gallery of Modern Art to Tank St, costing $63 million. I'm confused: I believe there is a bridge serving the same purpose approximately 100m away? God forbid pedestrians should have to walk that extra distance. Not only that, but apparently the bridge designed specifically for pedestrians opens up directly onto Tank St, where there are no footpaths. Kind of defeats the purpose, right? But these are not the only problems. Oh no. The bridge was also reportedly built 2m lower than originally intended, creating an increased risk of collision with high vehicles. This is made even more risky by the fact that the bridge is one of the first ever "tensegrity" bridges - meaning that it is held up by a series of cable networks rather than concrete (or something along those lines. Forgive me, i'm not an engineer). This is all very well - until there is a collision. It's been said that the tensegrity design is far more vulnerable to structural failure. The opening scenes of the latest Harry Potter movie spring to mind...

Of course, the government has counter-arguments to all these factors. But even if you agree with what they have to say, you have to admit, the thing is damn ugly.

odd claws

This blog really has nothing to do with crabs. Of any kind. The title is simply an anogram. However, I find these images interesting...

if Degas made dresses

I lied. I did manage to find one inspiring thing today. I wish this was in my wardrobe.

tired and unispired

Some days my cup runneth over with creative inspiration.
This is not one of those days.

Today all I have to say is, to the man in the photos: "marry me."
