Making Your Bed Just Got Easier!

29 Oct

Let’s face it. Who actually enjoys making their bed every morning?  This contemporary, innovative Zip Bed is designed by the Italian company Florida Furniture. I love the rounded corners. In the morning, just wake up, zip up, and get on with your day!  It comes in three striking color combos: white/red, gray/red, blue/white.

Hello Kitty Happy Hour #13

21 Oct

I came across this awesome Canadian designer/artist, Sean D’Anconia a few weeks ago online.  He creates the most incredible pop culture art and I LOVE LOVE LOVEEEEE his Sanrio-inspired prints!  Sean was kind enough to send me some photos of his latest work.  “KokeKokko is [his] favorite L.A. yakitori spot in the world so for their 23rd anniversary, [he] made this print showing the chef (Tomo-San) as HK along with the rest of the staff.” Thanks for sharing Sean and keep doing what you’re doing!

Meat Pie GOOD

21 Oct

I went to ACL two weeks ago and when it came time to get some food, I had to choose strategically.  Not only did it need to please my taste buds, but it needed to be easy to eat.  The less I had to get my hands dirty, the better.  My two friends decided to get Boomerang’s meat pie. I’ve never had one before, so I waited for them to get it so that I could try theirs.  Let me tell you – SOOOOO tasty, I had to get one for myself!  We ordered the Guinness Steak and Potato pie.  The crust was light and flaky and inside was a nice, stewy filling of beef, potatoes and onion – the beef was surprisingly tender.  I do have to admit, it was not the easiest food to eat due to the flaky crust, but it was worth it! I hope to try their Southwest Chicken pie next time!

Sorry… couldn’t really get a good shot of the filling inside with my ‘awesome iPhone camera’……

Watch This! Not That… #2

20 Oct

WATCH THIS!:

1. The Girl with a Dragon TattooIMDb, trailer

The first movie made of Stieg Larsson’s book trilogy. There’s a Hollywood version of this film being made, but we all know how that usually turns out… Don’t ruin it for yourself and watch the original!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. BabiesIMDb, trailer

Super cute movie. No narrative. Just adorable babies in their own different surroundings.  Be sure to catch the ending where they show present photos of each baby!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Jackass 3DIMDb, trailer

Want a movie that requires no thinking?  Here it is!  Super hilarious and they DEFINITELY took advantage of the 3D effect! Absolutely disgusting, I love it!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

NOT THAT…:

1. Splice – IMDb, trailer

Just plain HORRIBLE.  The trailer is very misleading. You think this alien thing is going to escape and complete mayhem will break out. Uh, no… not AT ALL what happens. Don’t waste your time or money on this one.

2. MacGruber – IMDb, trailer

Okay, I know this is suppose to be stupid funny, but this one’s just too much… I say go watch Jackass instead!
