New Blog!

This will be the last post I will ever write for Fashion and Music Galore. I'm glad too because the title of it is so stupid...I HATE IT! lol I've finally decided to stop being lazy and start blogging again. I've started a new blog called Shameless- that name is pretty stupid too but hey it's a hell of a lot better than Nonsense Ramblings or Fashion and Music Galore (WHAT WAS I THINKING). The new blog will have slightly more serious posts filled with actual substance or at least I hope it will.

For those of you who are still following my blog THANK YOU! I hope you will continue to read what I write on my new blog. Au revoir!

My Return Has Finally Arrived

Truthfully, my computer was fixed a while ago. I was just so used to not blogging that I couldn't get back into the habit of it! I will try to force myself to post something at least every other day, if not every day from no on though don't you little bloggers fret! I wouldn't be surprised if the few people who did read my blog have decided to never look at my page again!
During my vacation from blogging I had an interview for a design internship in NYC with a certain company which shall remain nameless. When I got there I immediately felt like I didn't belong there. I thought, "Wow....this is really what I want to do with the rest of my life?" I had been thinking of switching my major for a while now because while fashion and can be an interesting topic to read about or discuss it really isn't what I want my life dedicated to. I mean...an entire life dedicated to clothing? Seriously? I can do so much more with my life! Needless to say, I'm not going to be doing that internship.
Recently I've been thinking about changing my major to creative writing...possibly. I assure you my writing is a lot better than it is on this crappy little website because I just type out sentences really fast without thinking about what I'm writing...who am I kidding I'm crap! LOL! I hope not...

ANYWAY!!!

Today I came across this poem by T.S. Eliot which reminded me of my dogs (even though it's about a cat :/) which I just HAD to share with all of you!



"Macavity: The Mystery Cat"
by: T.S. Eliot

Macavity's a Mystery Cat: he's called the Hidden Paw-
For he's the master criminal who can defy the Law.
He's the bafflement of Scotland Yard, the Flying Squad's despair:
For when they reach the scene of crime- Macavity's not there!

Macavity, Macavity, there's no one like Macavity,
He's broken every human law, he breaks the law of gravity.
His powers of levitation would make a fakir stare,
And when you reach the scene of crime- Macavity's not there!
You may seek him in the basement, you may look up in the air-
But I tell you once and once again, Macavity's not there!

Macavity's a ginger cat, he's very tall and thing;
You would know him if you saw him, for his eyes are sunken in.
His brow is deeply lined with thought, his head is highly domed;
His coat is dusty from neglect, his whiskers are uncombed.
He sways his head from side to side, with movements like a snake;
And when you think he's half asleep, he's always wide awake.

Macavity, Macavity, there's no one like Macavity,
For he's a friend in feline shape, a monster of depravity.
You may meet him in a by-street, you may see him in the square-
But when a crime's discovered, then Macavity's not there!

And when the Foreign Office find a Treaty's gone astray,
Or the Admiralty lose some plans and drawing by the way,
There may be a scrap of paper in the hall or on the stair-
But it's useless to investigate- Macavity's not there!
And when the loss has been disclosed, the Secret Service say:
"It must have been Macavity!"- but he's a mile away.
You'll be sure to find him resting, or a-licking of his thumbs,
Or engaged in doing complicated long division sums.

Macavity, Macavity, there's no one like Macavity,
There never was a Cat of such deceitfulness and suanity.
He always has an alibi, and one or two to square:
At whatever time the deed took place- MACAVITY WASN'T THERE!
(I might mention Mungojerrie, I might mention Griddlebone)
Are nothing more than agents for the Cat who all the time
Just controls their operations: the Napoleon of Crime!

My Computer is Broken...

Sorry but I will not be posting that often for a while because my computer is on the fritz. For some reason it refuses to start and do what I want :(. Hopefully I'll be able to do a few posts on my sister's computer...but for now you will all have to wait!


...I miss blogging :(

Cult Films- The House on Haunted Hill

This movie is on the verge of being a cult film I think...it's had I think 3 remakes....but I was really compelled to do a 'cult films' post on this movie since Vincent Price is in it. Price has a pretty devoted cult following (now including me!) for his performances in the horror films during the latter part of his career. He was a theatrical actor who brought an air of seriousness to macabre and horror films that was really unique and one of a kind. You kind of just have to watch a film with him in it....preferably Witchfinder General.

I thought this movie was good though in a 'it's so bad you can see the wires' kind of way. You'll have to keep in mind that I hate horror films since I get scared so easily...I tend to prefer older movies since it's not people being tortured the whole time. The movie is basically about ?6 or 7? who lock themselves in a haunted house for the night at the bidding of an eccentric millionaire (played by Price) to see who can stay there the whole night. I didn't expect the ending at all so that was good lol. It was also fairly short....overall I would give it about 4 1\2 stars. I quite liked it :) Here's the trailer for the movie:



Also- I searched Vincent Price on youtube and this was one of the things that came up :/ Apparently Price had his own cooking show at one point, someone took sound bites from it, and turned it into a little song, which someone then played over them mouthing the words to the song. I guess that shows you how much people are obsessed with this guy lol!


This also happens to be made by that paperlilies person I told you guys about before....I did not do this on purpose lol, I didn't know this existed!

P.S. Sorry if I don't comment on your blogs in response to you commenting here....I've been really busy recently and please don't think I don't appreciate your comments b\c I really do! I try to get back to everyone!

Captain Beefheart

I have recently discovered music legend Captain Beefheart and all I can say is, "How have I not heard of this person before!!!!!". He has influenced acts from Blondie to The White Stripes and he isn't really known by a lot of people for some reason. All of his music sounds really different....but most of it is experimental in some way. He was a child prodigy and was offered a scholarship to study sculpture in Italy when he was 13....but for some reason his parents forced him to go to the Mohave Desert instead. He's a poet, sculptor, musician, and painter- he also has an incredible vocal range from REALLY low to REALLY high. Apparently he can break glass O.O. Here are some of my favorite songs I could find on youtube! Since all of his music sounds so different, if you don't like one song you may like another...so give it a chance! I personally like them all though- enjoy!

Style Icons and Creepy People

For some odd reason, Yoko Ono doesn't get any credit in terms of style. Her style of artwork is reflected in her clothing perfectly which I really like. She makes simplistic artwork often with the colors black and white and also wears clothes that are mostly black and white. Also, the cut and patterns (if any) on the clothes that she wears are really simple. Ono looks fantastic for her age as well! She's in her 70's and she can still rock a mini-skirt. She is quoted as saying on ImaginePeace.com that:

"Well, the thing is I decided that I don’t want to look bad. I didn’t want to look bad with age, so people would say “Poor darling, she’s looking like a bag lady.” I didn’t want that. I wanted to be able to keep my chin up and look good for myself and other people who want to give up because they’re high in number. I wanted to say, “No, do not give up."

Sunglasses and hats seem to be her thing as well. I think that hats are such an underrated accessory nowadays. Whenever I watch old movies I wish that people still wore hats\headbands\scarfs as much as they did back then. I also just wanted to point out that she did NOT break up The Beatles- there were a lot of factors as to why they broke up (I can already see the comments I'm gonna get on this post *sigh*. Anyway, here are some of my favorite pictures of Yoko's style:













This is definitely my favorite picture of them...it makes me happy :)




I also wanted to tell you guys about my new favorite blog: Craz-E-Mails! It's by two of my favorite vloggers on youtube: Mememolly and Paperlilies! They're pretty much celebrities on the Internet, so they wind up getting a lot of hate\weird mail from random people. Instead of deleting all of it they decided to set up a blog to keep track of all of them! It's the only blog I read that is funny, sad, disturbing, and infuriating all at the same time. It's great! Even if you don't watch their videos- you would still be able to laugh at how stupid people are lol. Here is one of their newest posts:

"hallo
you say you want 50 babies, i have ten and can get many morevery cheap, msg me"

Yeah...that's completely horrifying isn't it?

One of my personal favorites is this one:

"So im 15 can we have sex?i have a boner right now..really im not kidding you might think im lying right now but i get horny from everything"

Wow. Just wow.

It's pretty entertaining (and frightening) so you should check it out. See you guys later!!

Old School Threads

I would totally buy these things from this site but they either won't fit me\I'd never actually wear them\ or they simply cost way too much! I believe that vintage should never cost more than 20-25 dollars- and that's only if they're really good finds! Some of the things there are about $20 but unfortunately none of it was my size :( Granted some of the stuff on the site is from the Victorian Era (like the cape, lace-up boots, and bolero) and is pretty authentic; but still paying $1000 for a pair of shoes is ridiculous. Anyway, here are some of my favorite items from the site.







Also, could someone PLEASE design this jacket for women and make it cost less than $1000?? PLEASE I'M BEGGING YOU!!!!!!




On a side note: Earlier today I read the phrase "your toolbox called...you're missing again" and I giggled about it for a full minute. I'm a tool apparently.
