Weekend Round-up: The 100th Post!Posted: June 26, 2011
That’s right. This is my 100th post! Hooray! Huzzah! Yay! Any other cheer word? Those are the only ones I know 😀
Anyway, the past 3 months has been fun, and I’m looking forward to many more to come! (hey, that almost rhymes.) And now, business as usual…
Lesson of the Week: I might need to rethink this “Lesson of the Week” thing. It’s always been the hardest one to write. But, since we’re here, this week lesson is: I feel like I’m regressing a bit. Awkward as it is to admit that in my 100th post, but it’s true. More than once this week I don’t feel like putting together an outfit and just want to grab whatever is closest at hands. Am I in a style rut already? Maybe it’s just the remix getting to me. Yeah, I think that’s it. I’m getting closer to the end of my remix challenge and I’m feeling burned out. Maybe I’ll take a break from it, see what happens.
Blog of the Week: I’m clothed much by Elaine. A lot of you guys in the fashion blogging world probably know Elaine already. Her style is fun and casual, very re-creatable, and she’s great at working with what she’s got. Seeing her remixing her limited wardrobe makes me more determined to stick to my shopping ban.
Book of the Week: “The Man Who Ate Everything” by Jeffrey Steingarten. The main reason I picked it up is because I’ve heard about it every time Jeffrey Steingarten was a judge on Iron Chef America (which is a lot.) It’s part cookbook, part travel lodge, and reads more like a collection of articles he’s written on different food subjects than a cohesive book on one aspect of food. But then again I guess that’s why it’s called “The Man Who Ate Everything.” It’s an interesting book, and his writing is really entertaining, but it feels a little dated (it was first published in 1997), so this is going to the Donation pile.
Song of the Week: “Vlad the Impaler” by Kasabian (they named themselves after Linda Kasabian, a member of the Manson Family and key witness in Charles Manson’s trial.) I love all the singles they release from this album, “West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum”, so I couldn’t decide which one to pick. In the end I went with this video because it was directed by Richard Ayoade (whose Arctic Monkey video I chose not to post last week) and starred Noel Fielding. Also it’s a song about Dracula and has a tribute to Heath Ledger in the lyric. What’s not to like?
