Issue 16 - MAJOR

Going Up

The Skullset

Cory Kennedy what? This is the photoblog to watch.

Alternatives to "Fabulous"


Candy apple red
The new neon. Try it on your fingernails first.


Major shout-out to bar staffer Louie who returned our camera to us the day after we stupidly left it on the table. We are forever indebted.

Going Down

Drink a dozen beers, rip your tights, pass out in a parking garage, lose your $500 camera, puke in the train, crawl home at 6 am.

Sex and the City: The Movie
A.K.A "The First Wives Club: The Sequel"

These identikit posters say it all.

Who wants to look for Pom juice on a Saturday night when there's a cooler of beer in the backyard?

Summer sales

Save your cash -- 2 months from now you're going to want sweaters, jodhpurs, and boots.

Issue 15 - Good job for you I wasn't born a killer

Going Up

Beautiful Noise - a film
YES! YES! YES! Finally, a documentary on shoegaze bands. Read all about it here. All we need is a My Bloody Valentine reunion now...

Ride shoegazing away.

Black + Brown
Fall/Winter '07 prep starts now. Missy's thinking black tights and brown shoes.

Mobile phone contract expiration
Em's freedom starts August 27th baby!
P.S. Don't get a Samsung phone - they suck and break.
The antithesis of, our new favourite website is all about independent labels.

From Refinery29's latest feature story. Note the tucked-in t-shirt and Wintour hair.

U18 bands
Maybe it's all the hormones in meat these days, but surprisingly decent child musicians are popping up everywhere. Baby geniuses have sure come a long way since Hanson. Recommended U18 bands: frYars (specifically the song "The Ides"), Cajun Dance Party, and Bombay Bicycle Club

frYars, presumably trying to sneak out past curfew.

Going Down

U18 gigs
Fuck, we're getting old.

Queasy Listening
The inexplicably popular-yet-naff music by the likes of Maroon 5, Snow Patrol, and Keane.

Linkin Park clothing line

Dear Fashion Genie, please please please grant us our wish of NO MORE celebrity/fashion collaborations for at least a year. In return, we vow never to make fun of girls who wear Mavi jeans again.

Feather dresses

Big Bird much?

Issue 14 - Got no time for the jibba jabba!

Going Up

"I'm not cool either"

Quote of the day courtesy of BFF Pari.

Sperry Top-Siders

The New York Times ape-shitted over these shoes recently and we're inclined to agree. Get the look of a preppy Hampton brat for less than what Valentino pays for his yacht's toilet paper.

The Mr. T Jibba Jabba Archive

"I ain't afraid of flying, and I ain't afraid of no monkeys either!" and other classic Mr. T sound clips just begging to be sampled from this website. Props to Michelle for the tip off.

Being late

Yeah, we started this blog in motherfucking 2007. And we didn't join Facebook until THREE months ago. And we just figured out how to use Photobucket. We've been busy socializing with real live humans and questioning bandwagons.

Google decision-making

Normally, I couldn't give a toss about The White Stripes, but I have new found respect for a band that makes decisions based on the results of a search engine. Recently, the White Stripes Googled "Toronto fun" and ended up played a surprise gig at the first place listed: a YMCA day camp for children.

Going Down

Consumer vertigo

Speaking of decision-making, choice is overrated. "Consumer vertigo" pertains to being overwhelmed by choice and subsequently upping one's stress factor when shopping (hello Topshop?) After reading an article in the UK Times, we're now working on being "satisficers". (Next week: how not to be influenced by everything we read.)

Damien Hirst's diamond skull

After a month-long exhibition, artist Damien Hirst's latest piece, For the Love of God (a human skull covered with 8,500 diamonds), still doesn't have any buyers. Could it be because it costs $100 MILLION?!? For fuck's sake just donate it back to the the slaves who mined that shit for you and go shove a Blood Diamond DVD up your arse.

Egg piracy

BFF Michelle sourced this one for us. Apparently the shady business venture du jour in China is concocting fake eggs made entirely from chemicals and selling them to unsuspecting real egg consumers. Click image to enlarge the full 10 step process on how to get in on the action.

What the fuck.

Flaky "friends"

"Let's hang out soon" = "I'm a fucking flake who's going to waste your time by pretending that I want to see you, but my sole purpose in life is to up my Facebook wall-post count and watch Gilmour Girls." Bitch.
