I spoke too soon. I was supposed to go to the beach today but the weather has failed. Big time. It’s grey EVERYWHERE, and the weather report says there are going to be showers (sometimes heavy!) tomorrow too. Damn. I don’t want to spend Laneway standing in the rain for 10 hours.
I do however, want to experience this:
This is Florence and the Machine when they played last week in Sydney. Everyone knows the words! Crazy! Awesome!
If you’re in Auckland you will already know that the weather is amazing outside. Seriously, so good.
It’s officially summer and I officially want to go to the beach.

This beachy photo of Zippora (and the two below) are my favourites from an editorial entitled ‘Bay Bay Baby’, shot by Holly Blake for issue 42 of Yen.

For all you fellow Laneway attendees, they’ve posted a picture of the map.
Two days to go! Good times to be had!
The covers for the forthcoming issue 3 of LOVE Magazine are doing the internet rounds. I’d seen the ones with Lara and Jeneil (below), but not this one of Kristen until just now.
How many more are there to come? Are they going to use them all? We’ll have to wait and see. Six days to go.

A long time ago (5 years ago in fact), I worked in retail. It was probably one of the greatest jobs I ever had. The people were great, we used to just hang out and eat lollies all day, try on clothes etc. Anyhow, it was whilst working at this store (the name of which will remain undisclosed for now), that I met Eddie.
Eddie is the funniest person I know in the whole world. That may sound like quite a big call to make, but I have thought about it a lot and he is seriously hilarious. Now that I have said this, I must tell you that this rave about Eddie is actually not related to what I am posting at all, but it was he who alerted me to this editorial in the first place so he deserves some kind of credit. (Thanks dude!)
So, this is a kind of disturbing shoot done for Ssense. I’m not sure exactly whether I’m just a prude (this isn’t really much worse than some of Terry Richardson’s stuff… right?) or if this shoot really is crossing the line, but it makes me feel kind of uncomfortable nonetheless.
It’s entitled ‘Puppy Love’. It features a girl and a dog and a bunch of Alexander Wang (amongst other stuff). I don’t know what else to say about it exactly, but this comment from the photographers (Leda & St-Jacques) sums it up pretty well:
“It’s too difficult to find a man, so find a dog!”
So does this comment from a reader:
“It looks more like a beastiality promo than a promo for clothes”
It’s interesting to say the least. Some may even think it’s funny. Check the rest out below. What do you think?

I am pretty excited today. The Swedish-born, Melbourne-residing, singer-songwriter Jens Lekman is in town. If you don’t know who he is, look him up and watch the video! (If you do know and you don’t like him, I give you permission to stop reading here).
This is something similar (hopefully) to what I am going to be seeing tonight at the Montecristo Room:
Join me! Tickets are only $28. And for that amount, you SHOULD come running with your heart on fire.
PS: Sorry about the kind of crappy quality video.
PPS: Sorry about that ‘heart on fire’ line.
