Taking suggestions for a new character post, who would you guys like to see?
I respect your admiration for The Hunger Games but haven’t read them so let’s keep the Katniss requests to a minimum.
Look at them shoes dance. Dance shoes, dance!
Well, to be fair, the Disney versions are adaptations of classics.
You can find the stories in the original texts by Hans Christian Andersen, Charles Perrault, etc. A lot of them are just old folk tales.
So, knowing how big of a fan of Twilight I am, this post has been a long time coming. Like Bram Stoker’s vampires, Anne Rice’s are pretty badass. One of the the most interesting is Claudia. Unlike the rest of her kind, Claudia was made a vampire before she was an adult which leaves her to be a child for eternity. At first, that’s cool and her vampire fathers Lestat and Louis spoil her to no end. She ensnares her prey by being an angelic young child, often lost or in need. She murders at will and without care, ugh, kids. As decades wear on, Claudia becomes frustrated that she’ll never experience life as an adult. Her frustration turns to blind rage and she murders Lestat (but he don’t die!) and she and Louis flee to Europe to find more about their vampire roots. In Paris, the pair revel in culture and the arts before finding a troupe of vampires who pretend to be humans who pretend to be vampires to trick their prey. After it is revealed that Louis and Claudia killed Lestat, the theatrical vampires condemn Claudia to death by sunshine. I hate sunshine too. For those concerned for Louis, he lives, but is forever haunted by the death of Claudia. Try to keep in mind what a spoiled child with really good taste would wear…

By now, you probably know that I’m a big fan of Jack Spade. I’d wager to say that most of my wardrobe is from there and although a hefty amount of that came from when I worked there, I’m still pretty loyal.
Another brand I’m loyal to? Coca-cola, because this is America and I am an American. True, I may fancy a Pepsi every now and then but you can’t have a burger without a Coke and you definitely can’t have a steak sandwich from La Esquina without one, blasphemy.
So today, when I heard the 2 had joined forces to celebrate Coca-Cola’s 125th anniversary, I was stoked. The pieces I’m most excited for? The hat, the tote, the iphone case and the t-shirt. Will I look like a Jack Spade x Coca-Cola evangelist? Yes. Do I care? Yes, because I love them both.
You can look at the rest of the collab on the newly redesigned (lookin’ good) Jack Spade website.
Here’s more crap that I want:
Princess Zelda is the HBIC of Hyrule. Together with Link, she must protect the kingdom from Ganon, the evil wizard/pig. This time, I decided to focus in on Zelda during The Ocarina of Time which remains to be one of my favorite video games to date. When we first meet Zelda she is young and becomes childhood friends with Link. Naturally, when we travel forward in time, she is older and wiser. She spends half of her adulthood disguised as Sheikh of the Sheikah tribe. When disguised, she helps guide Link in his quest to vanquish evil. Finally, she is revealed as the strong, wise and triforce wielding Princess Zelda. WOOO!!! NINTENDO!!!

Liked the Zelda Post, check these CRAZY ones out:
Lydia Deets is one of my favorite apathetic characters ever. Having watched Beetlejuice many times in my childhood, I like to think that her general negative attitude toward everything rubbed off on me. I can only my children grow up with the same pessimistic outlook. Anyway, Lydia finds herself stuck in Connecticut with her frantic mother and simple father. Little do they know, their new home is where the ghosts of Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis live, isn’t that fun? Lydia forms a relationship with them and has various misadventures in the netherworld where she runs into Beetlejuice. I’m a little hazy on the details but there are sandworms and witch doctors and almost a wedding. Also, the cartoon version was great.

Everybody knows a Luna Lovegood type, they’re that one quirky friend you have that you sometimes wish would stop talking but at the same time, you never want them to shut up. Well, maybe that’s a little harsh, let’s leave it at your one quirky friend. Of course, when it comes to Harry Potter, there is much more to Luna than meets the eye and she becomes instrumental in bringing down Voldemort. She’s easily one of the most entertaining characters in the story. So give it up for LL.

Dominique Francon is the heroine of The Fountainhead and seems to be the only woman in the world made for the protagonist and architect Howard Roark. Likewise, he seems to be the only man for her. You know, it’s funny, both Howard and Dominique have this contempt for people around them. They feel like nobody measures up to their own personal standards of design or of life. Yet somehow, they’re both lovable. Dominique is admirable because she realizes that in life she has nobody to answer to but herself and doesn’t have to worry about how others value or judge her. Once she picks that up, she finds total and utter happiness. She’s right you know, who gives a shit?

Do you know before I became the world’s leading rhythmic gymnast, I really wanted to be an architect? The design of buildings always held an interest for me, from historical architecture, to Bauhaus, to post-modern crap. Howard Roark, the protagonist of The Fountainhead and I share this love. Like many people, he suffers for his work. Howard finds it difficult to work after he graduates. He could find easy success at the sacrifice of his own creativity. He knows how good of an architect he is and he spends his early career bouncing around, waiting for somebody to recognize his talent. His work life is plagued by negative press and a relationship with Dominique Francon. Eventually, Roark finds somebody to appreciate his work, but not without exploding some things. Hooray for explosions.

Everybody is always talking about Cleopatra. Well, everybody that talks about Pharaohs and ancient Egyptian royals. Sure, C-pats was great, but I’m much more interested in Nefertiti. We all know her from that famous bust of hers-a long slender neck, a big crazy hat and beautiful face. She reigned with her husband, Pharaoh Akhenaten and the pair brought a religious revolution to Egypt to worship one god as opposed to the previous pantheon of gods. Very much of her life is still a mystery, but that’s what makes it fun. But yeah, I’m sure she was really concerned with like her clothes and crap.

I’ve seen this around a few times and tried it on today. It is nice and I want it. It’s definitely on the expensive side at $1200 and there’s no way I’ll be able to afford it but it would be great for all my urban hunting excursions in Nolita.
