She's already wearing it!?

Fashion victim. At least let it SETTLE IN, it showed in Paris THREE DAYS AGO. Ugh. UGH.

let them eat it

Richard's version

Okay, listen; I love cake. I love cake but I don't get to eat it that often because WOW does cake take a long time to make. Sometimes I'll see cake on TV and want cake so bad but I'm way too lazy to make a whole cake. SO YOU CAN IMAGINE MY EXCITEMENT when I came across this ingenious invention the other day:


After I gathered my thoughts, I told the lovely and talented Richard about this crazy cake recipe. He was like "K I'M TRYING THIS IMMEDIATELY" and since I wasn't in the mood for cake and couldn't try it myself, I invited him to tell me how it turned out. He gave it a 6.5 out of 10 for deliciousness. Today, I tried it myself! Behold:

The flour, sugar and cocoa mixture.

Mixing in the egg.

the pre-microwave mixture (flour, cocoa, sugar, egg, milk and oil)

The finished product!

I give it a 10 for convenience, a 6 for deliciousness (it's a little spongy, we both thought so) and a 9 for being able to satisfy a quick cake craving without having to bake a whole big cake with a whole big mess to clean up. Lazy cake lovers the world over, rejoice.

keep your guns at home

I know this is horribly selfish and terrible of me but...I miss the old Cat Power. I totally miss the Chan who used to drink like a fish and flash her pubes in photos and not be on the cover of L'Officiel. I long for the Cat Power who would play shows/songs with just her guitar and a drummer and maybe a bassist, and whose songs were only in minor keys. I've hated her last two albums, The Greatest and Jukebox. They're all big-bandy and over-processed and (cringe) happy. I'm a complete and total believer in the cliche of the tortured artist and in the fact that suffering = art and all that bullshit, which is why I think her early stuff (Myra Lee, What Would The Community Think, Dear Sir) was so epic. And now that she's all happy and successful and clean and sober, it's not the same anymore.

Anyway, this post was supposed to be about how her song "Rockets" is my very favourite and was the source for the name of this blog. So here you go, click and listen to the song or right click and save the song forever.

Cat Power - Rockets

and the Sundance Kid

Over the weekend my oldest and dearest celebrity crush, Paul Newman, passed away of cancer. So so sad.

how to brighten my week 101:

Send me these three DVD's in the mail and tell me I can keep them for as long as I want and include self-addressed stamped envelopes for me to send them back to you when I'm done watching. That is what Zip.ca (one of Canada's versions of Netflix) has been doing for almost a month now and I'm in HEAVEN. It's fantastic to come home from a long day to find movies I've been dying to watch wrapped up in neat little packages in my mailbox. AND it's a family account so I pay NOTHING. The way it works (Americans can skip this, I'm sure you're allllll toooooo famils):

- You sign up on the website with a credit card (I assume...since I didn't have to do this) (EPIC SIDENOTE: MY APPLICATION FOR A PRESIDENT'S CHOICE FINANCIAL CREDIT CARD WAS DECLINED THIS WEEK LOL I AM A FAILURE)

- You RACK YOUR BRAINS for titles of movies you've been wanting to see for a while but never got around to it (example: Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World. That one is courtesy of daddy dearest...) then search for them on the site (they have everything ever) and check them off to put in your queue

- Zip.ca mails you the DVD's in the order in which they become available. You can have three/four movies out at a time, depending on which plan you choose.

- After your first month FREE, you start to get charged an average of $24 a month

i guess you're right

Is it wrong to be sort of infatuated with these weird chiffon leggings from Nicole Farhi Spring 2009?
As the cliche goes: if it's wrong, I don't want to be...etc. etc.

eine kleine nachtmusik

Is anybody else is listening to this German radio station right now because they're supposed to play Britney's new song "Womanizer"? (http://890rtl.radio.de/)

not to be uncultured but they were just playing this german pop song and it was UNBEARABLE to listen to them singing in german like wtf


EDIT 3: Just realized I'm live-blogging about German radio.

11:19: it's weird how listening to German is almost like listening to somebody speak in English with a really strong accent but being just a BIT out of the realm of understanding

11:22: Green Day's "Wake Me Up When September Ends" is on. And will be for a good little while now. I would rather vom than listen to this song. Brb, getting tea.

11:29: I'm back, armed with green tea and toast with cheddar cheese. Yum. I keep making out bits of them saying "Britney Spears" but still, no new song yet.


11:39: EYYOOOOO They're playing Wonderwall. Cheap excuse to post hilarious loving photo of the Gallagher's bro-down photo sesh

11:50: This is ridiculous and sad. I should be catching up on Project Runway or London fashion week. PLAY THE DAMN SONG. When did I start caring this much about hearing the new Britney?

11:58: I'm making a prediction that they're going to play the song at EXACTLY midnight, Pacific time. Here's hoping.

12:04: I was wrong. They played Amy Winehouse's "Valerie". Now they're playing Kelly Clarkson so I've decided not to give up just yet. Kelly Clarkson does that to a person.

stefanie conjunction junction says:
omg they're playing this INSANE song
stefanie conjunction junction says:
this german song with like a drumline AND violins
stefanie conjunction junction says:
omgggg it's fucking crazy
Richard says:

12:22: They are now playing the German equivalent to Nickelback. I HAVE HAD ENOUGH, I'm going to bed. Goodnight moon.

hands down

Lykke Li is too proud for love

and she is almost too fabulous for this blog. At least listen to the song if you don't want to watch her dancing devastatingly with her high-bun.

Sometimes people read the free newspaper in the car after drinking a Caramel Frappucino their dad bought them and then feel really sick and go home and take a gravol and fall asleep at 8pm and wake up at 7am the next morning and feel like they've slept for a million years.
Too bad I don't have class today, I would have been a STAR.

Don't tell anyone but... I think the Marc Jacobs Spring 2009 collection is starting to grow on me. Oops.

But don't worry, I still think these shoes are the worst thing to ever happen.

listen bitches

I'm not going to SUPER-POWER-BLOG about Fashion Week because that is too time consuming and I just started FASHIN SKEWEL today so WOW brain overload. I will however share with you one of my favourite collections thus far:

Catherine Holstein
just KILLIN it.

I'll be the first to admit that her collection isn't fashion forward but it's rare to find a collection from which I would wear every piece exactly how they're styled.
Plus, give me a turban-like hat/headwrap ANYDAY and I'm yours forever I promise!

(spoilerz alertz) this is rare

Like, SUPER DOOPER RARE EXTREME but stuff actually happened on the Hills tonight. Like SITUATIONS and stuff. It was mind blowing. Quick recap before bed:

1. The gang went to Vegas for Frankie's birthday and they were all supes drunk. In her drunken state, Stephanie asked Brody why he told Lauren not to trust her and when he said that it's because he thinks she's CRAZY, she totes cried. She also admitted she used to have a ~*~crazy drug problem~*~! Those must have been some stiff cocktails. Hardee har har.

2. These two "went to jail" which really means pressing charges on some drunk guy who punched them in the casino. Winners!

3. Justin Bobby's behavior proved that he may in fact be the only sane person on the Hills (except for Frankie, the unsung hero). I mean if JUSTIN BOBBY can manage to be friends with everyone, why can't Lo, Audrina, Lauren, Stephanie, Spencer, Heidi and Brody do it too? For GOODNESS SAKE.

4. Lauren and Audrina cried and made up (at least for now). Lauren actually seems like a totes good friend for trying so hard to be friends/hang out with Audrina. Brought a happy tear to mine eye :')

Disclaimer: I choose not to comment on the Heidi and Spencer storyline at ALL just because I don't want to give them the publicity they so desperately want. Not because I'd get really angry and worked up. Not at all. Nope.

i just called to say i love u

Right at this very moment I am going through the style.com photos of every Spring 2009 show in fashion week SO FAR. It has only been 3 days but it is a long arduous task.

I just wanted to pop in and say that ERIN FETHERSTON is the creepiest creep to ever be creepy in the fashion world. Look at her flat-ironed bangs and scary translucent skin and no eyebrow ways!

I know she's supposed to be all *~*~qUiRkY~*~* and *~*~gIrLy*~*~* but I'm just creeped out.

Carry on.

new year new look new paige

As you can see, my blog is now PEENK. How does this make you feel? I like it a lot, it reminds me of cookies.

Speaking of sweet things, I'm currently watching "Degrassi the Next Generation: Behind the Scenes" and Paige and Marco are showing me around the sets. I don't understand why Andrew hates this show so much.


can you spot Lucille Bluth?!

90210! Darcy from Degrassi is now the main character in the new series of 90210! She is such a Generation Next-er. Did anyone watch it? I did. It was alright I guess. Here's my breakdown. Sorry about the image quality, I still don't have photoshop on the new laptop so I'm using PAINT. barf.

That's Naomi, the queen bitch. She is soooooo fierce.

Chick With The Bangs (that's her name for now since I don't remember it and don't really care) I want to know what's UP with you. They didn't really develop her story at all yet but I'm intrigued. What we know about CWTB: she bought some mysterious $200 bag of pills from some surf bro, she went on a movie audition but was hearing voices (mysteriously?) so she left before it was her turn to read, her mom is poor. STAY TUNED.

These two are the dynamic duo. And yeah, his dad is a porn director and won't let him watch porn until he turns 21 (and he's actually following that rule...for now. I'll keep you posted.)

ALSO SIDENOTE: speaking of Dynamic Duos, these two hipsters were in the premiere for like .2 secs:

Yeah, you read correctly, he is a TEACHER. He is also the foxiest man/guy on the show. I feel funny.

anyway THOUGHTS?
