Levi Maestro's "Infinity Piece". →
Existentialism + timepiece = a watch that doesn’t tell time, but looks good anyway.
I wrote a post some weeks back on a photo series called Detroit in Ruins, chronicling the city’s dilapidated, abandoned beauty. Here’s a similar series by another photographer, this one of what used to be the bustling manufacturing and factory hub of Detroit. cabbagerose: I was amazed by Sean Hemmerle’s photography in his Rust Belt Series where he explores the remains of...

tomywife: If I’m coming to meet you or pick you up and I happen to stop for coffee, I’ll pick up your usual…with some extra of that stuff you put in it. UPDATE: I’ll text first probs. Just saying. I only have two hands and one of them has to hold a PILE OF DIAMONDS. not really.
Joel & Scott's Top 50 Remixes of 2010. →
I’m not sure who Joel and Scott are—never heard of them until today—but they’ve got a pretty good list going on here. Dance, dance, dance.
You’re undercover, my secret lover. You’re what I need, my bullet’s in the gun. (by Private) The lead singer is like the club kid version of Jason Schwartzman, no?
JPG in MTL: Jean Paul Gaultier Retrospective in... →
It’s my goal to hit the east coast trifecta of Toronto, Montreal and New York this year. And it would be particularly awesome to see Jean Paul Gaultier’s first international retrospective at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. Cone bras, anyone?
Eliot in the Evening.
Do I dare 45 Disturb the universe? In a minute there is time For decisions and revisions which a minute will reverse. For I have known them all already, known them all:— Have known the evenings, mornings, afternoons, 50 I have measured out my life with coffee spoons; (Not my usual late night read, but The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock is a favorite of mine....
My insanely creative pal Melo is shooting for a new Elle.com site on local street style. His first shots go up this February. Yay! In the meantime, check out his already existing street style blog, Style Quotient. And check out his girl Suns’ cute site Partly Sunny, too, which is about fashion, lifestyle and et al. Nothing like giving your friends a little Tuesday shout out! Besos, Haute...
J'adore! It's Dior Couture SS '11.
There were a lot of big, big, big shoulders and tons of volume at the Spring ‘11 Christian Dior couture show in Paris. As most couture (and John Galliano) is, the theatrics were plenty—and so were the pieces to covet. I particularly liked this caped cropped jacket, which was tres chic with the complementary gloves, gradient color and skinny skirt. Go, Galliano. I’m Lovin’ it:...
Breakbot on the Black and Whites.
I know, I know. So I talk about this Breakbot track quite a bit. But it was the one song last year that just made me happy all the time. This evening, while doing my Sunday evening web reads and video clip watching, I came across a young fellow on YouTube named cruzo67. He appears to do quite a few piano covers, mostly of artists you don’t normally associate with piano covers, like the...
Happy Friday! Breakbots and Brightsides.
Last night, I was somehow “coerced” into making a pit stop for one drink at one of the city’s most notorious wateringholes. This place always has a line up, always has the smell of stale beer in the decades old carpet and always has a live band and DJ trading off between classics and Top 40, with some random awesome tracks tossed in. You’re always loathe to go here, but...
“We are new every day”. Yes. Yes, we are.
Sea of Seychelles.
I spent two hours yesterday at the KNOW?SHOW with my team at cut & SHOW, saying hello to industry pals and checking out what the brands, reps and distribution companies had for Fall 2011. My girl Mir owns an agency called Brunette Showroom, representing brands like Sienna Ray hangbags, Lisbeth Jewelry (her sister Sophie’s line), BC Footwear, QSW (Quiksilver’s higher-end...
Renee Labbe, an old boss of mine who is now the Senior VP of Global Trends at Stylesight, got me into really loving fonts. I remember her showing me the opening credits to a few films, solely for the typography and how it was animated and how it was visually presented. Since then, I’ve found my eye always wandering to and lingering on all things typographical. It’s really quite...

Pogo Remixes The World.
I blogged about the immensely talented Pogo, aka Nick Bertke, awhile back because of his ‘Wishery’ track, which took scenes, sounds and vocals from Disney’s Snow White. He’s now working on a worldwide project, in which he’s mixing the sights, sounds and people of places around the world into a series of tracks. It’s an amazing project, and I can’t wait...

Two Peas, One Pod.
Just snagged this photo off The Book of Face of my two buddies Farrzy (left) and Dubs (right), taken over the holidays. Can you say two peas in a pod?! They’re probably going to kill me for putting this up, but you can’t avoid the awesomeness that is Farrzy’s vintage Pendleton coat and Dubs’ reindeer-and-fir-tree cowichan. Even Dubs’ plaid matches Farrzy’s...
Dance, dance, dance.
Before the holidays, I went to the re-opening of a cute local boutique that moved from one neighbourhood to another. I was quite fascinated with the store’s Grey Gardens-inspired mannequin display, mainly because I hadn’t yet seen the Drew Barrymore/Jessica Lange film nor the 1975 documentary on the notorious, reclusive Bouvier mother-daughter duo. A little online research yielded many...

Happy New Year! It's 2011.
I recently did a Sweetspot city editor post on some city-centric New Year’s resolutions, as opposed to me-centric ones like the year before. In the post, I talked about how I always seem to be debating with friends, just before New Year’s Day comes, on the merits of writing resolutions. Half my pals think it’s hogwash, the other half thinks it’s good for the mind and soul....
