Today’s Top 5

cook1. Lost in the Supermarket: The Indie Rock Cookbook.

Andy, if you’re reading this: I desperately want this for Christmas. This cookbook sounds so freakin’ cool. There are everyday and gourmet recipes from bands like Fugazi, Belle and Sebastian, Japanther, Animal Collective, Pretty Girls Make Graves, the Mountain Goats, Sonic Youth… I can’t wait to have a dinner party and say I’m making Kim Gordon’s famous Turkey Pot Pie. hehe.


2.Dirty Dancing video game. Um, can we say AWESOME?! It hasn’t been released yet, but in this game you will be able to “experience the life of Baby, learn to dance with the resident dancing couple, Johnny and Penny, and work alongside the team at the renowned Kellerman’s Mountain House Resort.” I’m so there.


mustache3.The World Beard & Mustache Championship. You have gotta check this out. It’s too fabulous (in a Sound-of-Music/Oompa-Loompa kind of way).


4.Marc Jacobs shoes. shoeshoe3
I was just salivating over these at Zappos.com. The only problem is that MJ shoes usually go for 3-5 hundred dollars. Sigh.


5.FASHION WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Starting Wednesday, let the fun begin.

    lucky you living in NY! we just had our mini-version last week, it aint no New York Fashion Week, but it’s getting there 😉 i covered the whole thing on our blog

    I loved Dirty Dancing so much I even went and watched Havana Nights back in 2004- which wasn’t as awful as everyone else who saw it seemed to think. I’m just a sucker for things I can’t do, is all (in this case, dance). Plus, it had one of the boys from Y Tu Mama Tambien, and I loved Romola Garai in I Capture The Castle.
    And the Beard and Moustache championships are brilliant- a picture even came out in my local paper, the chap in it had a lot more prongs to his beard than the one here, though. And somehow I’ve always felt like beards are things that belong on grey/white-haired older men, it takes guys years to reach the levels of distinguishment or eccentricity that they need to carry it off.

  3. NY Fashiion week should be a national holiday…..and foir that holiday everyone gets a pair of those Marc Jacobs shoes…the pink ones actually made my eyes well up with tears.

    Oh jeez, I forgot about Fashion Week! Basphemy! I must keep tabs on it and check out everything. There’s a pair of Louie Vuitton shoes that I want to know if it’ll be out of style by next season. If not, then I’m gonna get a pair. If not, then it’s those Marc Jacobs shoes you were talking about. They’re so nice!

    Dirty Dancing the video game? I’m not sure about that. I’m interested in reading reviews though.

  5. Modern Marie says:

    that cookbook sounds so cool! Music and food – my favorites!
    oh and CANNOT wait for pictures of fashion week 😀

  6. for each numero, I kept saying SHUT UP! Indie Rock Cookbook, dirty dancing video game, awesome punkish mj shoes, shut up shut up shut up, I want it all!!!! I think grey leather is hot, thats because I now own it. Rally though, grey has always been a favorite color of mine since childhood and it seems to always be in style, a new classic, if you will.

  14. Seraphine says:

    We just finished Fashion Week in San Francisco a week ago. It’s not nearly the same as New York- our fashion week is mostly “unknown” and local designers.
    From SF- Pants and denim, as well as the boho look, are out. Dressy is in, with skirts above the knee (even for evening wear). Loose fitting prints, Jersey dresses and leggings are also in season. Glam hats, gloves and slimming black are the fall style.
    It’ll be interesting if it’s the same in New York.
    Hugs to you, Alex
