Glow 2008 Santa Monica

The last time Glow was announced in 2008, I had high, high hopes.  LA (Santa Monica) was going to have it’s own version of the French art festival, Nuit Blanche.  Art from all walks of life are displayed with the city itself as the gallery.  Glow 2008 was somewhat of a disappointment.  The art pieces were few and far between.  Granted, it was partially my fault for getting to the festivities late (thank you city of Santa Monica for having such shitty parking), I was hoping for more.

Here’s hoping Glow 2010 gets its act together and puts on a great festival!

i saw these cutey-patootie pillows a few months ago.  i told myself i can make my own…which is probably semi-true.  fact is, my DIY version would most likely be lopsided and it would stay on my to-do list indefinitely.  i should really just bite the bullet and order it:

Adobe Creative Suite Pillows

i also finally got wall flowers i mentioned in my previous post:

My new wallflowers

yes.  i’m still alive.  barely.  while i sort the neurons out in my brain, have a look at my future room decor (hopefully.)

Chandlier Silhouette

Nifty pop-out flowers to give some depth to my room.  Chandlier silhouette compliments my chandlier in the living room.  A real silhouette would’ve been a tad much for my bedroom.  And finally, the chalkboard.  Because you can never have enough real estate to write/draw on.

heavens! like cupcakes? like cheeseburgers? how about both!

cupcake cheesburgers

cupcake cheesburgers

aren’t they the cutest suckers?  they seem relatively easy to bake, keyword SEEM.  food and i don’t really get along unless my part is solely to ingest.  Kate Wienburg from Toronto’s boyfriend, you have truly notched the bar up higher.

and on the other end of the spectrum, the geek in me is fighting to come out with the release of Tron Legacy.  holy moly.  from the looks of the trailer, it looks to be quite a visually stimulating piece.  not to mention the aural sensations courtesy of daft punk.  take a peek.

and because it wouldn’t be me to be completely random, i present thee with Sir Burton’s art collection.  obviously, mr. burton is not english and he certainly was never knighted, but his vision deserves the title.   www.timburton.com

yes, the (500) days of summer soundtrack is still on repeat.  and will probably stay on repeat for the next few postings.
