THE ROW fashion week dinner

this sounds AMAZING/why was i not invited? I bet there was room for me at the table, probably in the seat next to Spike Jonze...

click the image to read about the details of the event, hosted by Vogue editors Lisa Love and Lawren Howell.

making it

Since the first season of Jonathan Ames's seies Bored to Death ended, there haven't really been any shows airing on HBO that I've been interested in. But after the premiere episode on Valentine's Day, How to Make it in America is my new Sunday night obsession. Kid Cudi, Bryan Armstrong, Victor Rasuk (another Lords of Dogtown alum) play friends navigating their way through the bullshit-laden East Villiage hipster art scene while hustling to make ends meet while they devise a plan to make it big and discover their moment of greatness.

Episode 2 comes on Sunday at 10pm on HBO--watch it!

has anyone else made this connection??

blog braggin'

What was that? Did you say you're jealous because Christian Lander, creator of Stuff White People Like, just wrote "Sweet glasses and you will not get a job" in my copy of the book (and obviously signed the inside cover of my hip moleskine notebook with "this will one day be a great novel"). English majors unite!

**note: the image above is pretty much the whitest photo I have saved on my computer.

things i love: juergen teller

i'm not always bowled over by fashion photography, but i've always found juergen teller's images so unique and fascinating. from his use of saturated color and bright whites to his ability to capture his subjects in a way that communicates the vulnerability, awkwardness, uncertainty, and instability of mankind, teller's work is always provocative and revealing while remaining beautifully candid.

here are a few of my favorite images of his:
