She's lost control again...

I read " Touching From a Distance" last year and was disappointed. I vowed not to read anymore bios on musicians i love.They should be shrouded in mystery and i don't want to know what they ate for breakfast. Since then i have broken my vow, i cant seem to stop reading a good rock n' roll bio from time to time. Anyways, in the book he's portrayed as a bad husband, father and I'm sure he was but the book came across a little one sided. For years i have been anticipating the release of Control, directed by Mr. Anton Corbijn (amazing photographer and video director). It was amazing and i advise anyone reading this to go see it tonight, it's playing at Film Forum here in the city. Every moment of this film is a beautiful black and white photograph and the actors are dead on. All I'm going to say is that the film made him out to be more of a human being, totally flawed but a little more human. Please go see it!

These are some movie stills i took during the movie. I couldn't help it, i was in love with every image i saw.

sprout home...

My new favorite plant store is Sprout Home, a lovely store in
Williamsburg. Last time i was there i saw this lil succulent plant and had to have it. They call them Living Stones, they are really called Lithops. I thought they were adorable, a combination of alien brains and butts. I was so proud of them and showed them off to all my friends when i got home. To my surprise, my friends found them repulsive! I love my new plant all the same.

Don't water these lil dudes. Only spritz from time to time...

Panic on the streets of NYC...

When i woke up this morning, it felt like Christmas! I was going to see Morrissey tonight with the people i love most in the world. This would be my third time seeing Mr.Mozzer (first time being in 1997). Every time I've seen Morrissey, I've managed to get to the front row and this would not be any different. I warned my boyfriend that i would not be the same girl he knows once Morrissey walks on stage. I will become a screaming, aggressive, crying, mess of a girl. The opening act was obnoxious and i wont get into that. Morrissey was as amazing as ever and did a bunch of Smiths songs! His new band was also amazing, even though i was a bit upset when i learned that Gary Day was no longer touring with him. I've had a crush on him since 1992. When Morrisey sang "please please please let me get what i want" there wasnt a dry eye in the house.

LCD Soundsystem and Arcade Fire at Randalls Island...

I would pay tithing, baptize my first child to, worship on sundays, the church of the Arcade Fire. I am a convert. Seeing them live was a religious experience. I knew i was in for a treat and ended up being blown away. Eleven happy Canadians singing and playing their little hearts out for us. The visuals, the performance, simply amazing. Please purchase a ticket and go see Arcade Fire whenever the chance may arise.

LCD Soundsystem was also great!
