i'm new. bright-eyed and bushy tailed. fresh and full of promise. full of potential. full of "Hi there, how are you?'s". waiting for the jaded evenings to come. waiting for the tone in my voice to change. i'm new.

I've never been a quitter

...so how do you know when is it time to call it quits?

Morning Yearning

i woke up early to complete silence. i made some tea. everything is still in tones of grey, everyone is still sleeping soundly. i took breakfast with some Feist and opened the window to a misty morning. the light is low, my heart is high, and i think i'm falling back in love with life.

Ann Demeulemeester: Spring/Summer 2007

For over two decades, Ann Demeulemeester has stayed true to herself, displaying the Belgian rocker chick look. With items that are long-lasting, in both style and durability, her Spring/Summer 2007 collection was no exception. The collection featured the concept of the urban poet, having cut-away men's vest with fading flowing blouses, and spelled out androgyny at its finest. Demeulemeester offers intelligent fashion in time dominated by sleaze.

Here are some of my favourite outfits from the collection:

Did the Danforthe

I headed down to Greek Town last night to see my friend Joe Chammas perform. He played an acoustic set at Renaissance Cafe.

It was a good night out. A 3-chord angry chick played later on in the night and we ran into a middle-aged druggie on the street. Apologies, for the lack of footage of either of these shady characters.

Pillow fight, anyone?

Unfortunately to disappoint male readers but I'm actually talking about the PFL. Pillow Fight League, that is. Pillow fighting is making its way into the sporting world and gaining quite a lot of attention in pop culture, being called "a glimpse of the future of sport" by ESPN mag. Like any sport, the league has established official rules and guidelines which must be followed:

the Official PFL Rules
Pillow Fight League Referee Matt Patterson
1. Female pillow fighters only. No exceptions.
2. Professional pillow fights are won via pinfall, surrender, or referee stoppage. If a pillow fight ends at the time limit with no winner, a winner is declared by a three-judge committee, using the traditional 10 point system. Pillow fighters are judged based on Style, Stamina, and the Eye of the Tiger.
3. Pillow fighting is Fun. No biting, scratching, or hair pulling. Malicious intent and blatant disregard of your opponent's safety (or your own) may result in immediate suspension and/or dismissal from the League.
4. Mouth guards, knee pads and elbow pads are mandatory.
5. Bearing in mind Rule #3, most anything goes in a pillow fight, as long as there is a pillow at the point of contact. Preventing your opponent's offense by holding her pillow is not allowed.
6. Pillow fighters must practice good sportswomanship. No rude, lewd, or suggestive behavior.
7. A pillow is not a weapon. Deliberately compressing the pillow fibres to increase the density of the pillow is not allowed. Loading a pillow with any foreign object is strictly forbidden.

According to the PFL website, http://www.gopfl.com/ : "It's business is training women to become Professional Pillow Fighters in the PFL Arena, providing Entertainment for an audience, at PFL Live Events and at PFL Special Appearances." Don't take these fighters as a joke or they'll fight you... with a pillow?
