"Roger darling, I'm ready for my close up!"

A couple of months back, I did a photo shoot for two friends of mine. The theme was Disney Villains and I was picked to portray Cruella De Vil.
Here's the outcome:

Photographer: Rachel
Hair/ Make-up / Styling: Jessica

Rachel is an amazing young photographer, these pictures would not have happened without her creative talent. You can check out the rest of the Disney shoot here and here as well as Rachel's other projects. This girl's got lots of talent! You won't be disappointed.

I'm With Stupid

Like balloons, we are filled with hopes and dreams.
Over time a single sentence creeps into our lives.
Don’t be stupid.
It’s the crusher of possibility. It’s the worlds greatest deflator.
The world is full of smart people. Doing all kind of smart things… That's smart.
Well, we’re with stupid. Stupid is the relentless pursuit of a regret free life.
Smart may have the brains…but stupid has the balls.
The smart might recognize things for how they are. The stupid see things for how they could be.
Smart critiques. Stupid creates.
The fact is if we didnt have stupid thoughts wed have no interesting thoughts at all.
Smart may have the plans... but stupid has the stories.
Smart may have the authority but stupid has one hell of a hangover.
Its not smart to take risksIts stupid.
To be stupid is to be brave.
The stupid isn't afraid to fail.
The stupid know there are worse things than failure… like not even trying.
Smart had one good idea, and that idea was stupid.
You can’t outsmart stupid. So don’t even try.
Remember only stupid can be truly brilliant.

Be Stupid.

I know it's stupid, but these ads are genius.

this is MY city.

no duh.

Why helloooooo Norwegian athletes. I will definitely be looking for the rest of your team.

Yeaaaaa, I got to hold the torch. No big deal..........

O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.

With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!

From far and wide,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

After walking around downtown today and seeing everything that's been done to the city, I can honestly say that I am so proud to be a Canadian. But more importantly, I am so proud to be a Vancouverite. A few months ago I wasn't complete supportive of the Olympics because I knew the city would be uber busy, and it would be impossible to get anywhere. But today really opened my eyes. I can't wait to continue exploring all the sites for the next 2 weeks. The best part about today, though, was the fact that I got on TV for the first time in my life. I am so proud of myself.

More photos will be uploaded soon!

"You are not in Kansas anymore. You are on Pandora, ladies and gentleman. "

Flannel shirt: Urban Outfitters($10!), Fedora: Forever 21, Vintage Frames: True Value Vintage

Pretty much when I saw this flannel at UO, I knew I had to have it. The color drew me in right away. But I think what I love the most are the little stud details on the shoulders.

I think they're pretty cool.

Over this Christmas break I unfortunately was only able to see 2 of the 6 movies I wanted to see in theaters:
  1. Young Victoria
  2. Sherlock Holmes
  3. Avatar
  4. Up in the Air
  5. The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus
  6. Invictus
Out of those 6, I only saw Avatar and Doctor Parnassus. I have to say both movies were enjoyable, but both were really really long.

At 162 minutes, Avatar was great fun. Near the end. I dunno, you may disagree but I just felt the movie lagged in some parts. Yes, the dialogue was uber corny, but it's an action film, you don't watch it for the intelligent dialogue between characters. Overall I think it's worth your money. If you wait for the DVD, you just won't have the same experience unless you've got a 50" or bigger screen TV. Because you need a big screen in order to be amazed by the special effects.

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is 122 minutes. Which I feel is unnecessary. While Avatar is filled with action to keep you entertained for hours, Imaginarium is not. The effects are once again well done, and the acting is pretty good, I was especially surprised by Lily Cole in her feature film debut. I thought she would be really annoying, but she was impressive. Heath Ledger is very good looking of course, and Johnny Depp is a dream (too bad he was only in the movie for 10 minutes). The downside to the film is the overstretched story. In some parts I drifted off and lost interest. It's a very very strange movie, which is why I'm still unsure if I like it or not. To conclude, if you're a fan of Ledger, then see it. He's really good in it so it's unfortunate that he wasn't able to appear in the entire film. Otherwise, if you like simple stories without twists and turns, then you can skip this one.
