yesterday, i went to the bronx zoo with about 40 of my relatives (we have a big family). anyway, i spent the greater part of my day at the sea lion fountain which got me thinking about feist’s song sea lion woman. one thing lead to another and i decided to post it here. so enjoy, feist’s sea lion woman. the song is posted so you can have a listen.

after tsarina alexandra yesterday, i figured i’d ride the revolutionary russia wave as far as i could. naturally, the most ‘editorial’ of all these cats would be rasputin. now i’m sure most of the people who read this blog are familiar with him from the anastasia movie. i hate to be the bearer of bad news but i don’t think he sold his soul for a vial of demon monsters to destroy the romanovs. rasputin was a mystic, some revered him as a prophet and others dismissed him as a lunatic. regardless of the public, tsarina alexandra turned to him to aid her son’s illness. rumors swirled around the tsarina and rasputin, but the czar refused to send him away for fear his beloved wife and son would feel betrayed. as his relationship with the royal family grew, so did his influence. ultimately driving the country’s nobles mad with jealousy and fear. and everybody knows what happens when you’re jealous and frightened enough. too bad for rasputin. please note: these captions are taken from this song

note: anastasia was posted ages ago…but check it out, one of my favorites.
1: givenchy haute couture s/s 2010 shoes: walk walk fashion baby.
fair warning: this is likely the most outrageous thing i’ve posted to date.
combing through the couture shows i found a look from givenchy that instantly reminded me of the lovable lullaby-ing jigglypuff…a friendly pokemon. i started browsing in alexis mabille and found another pokemon parallel, then another in chanel, another in dior and another in armani prive. the similarities are pretty striking, enjoy!
1: armani prive and ninetails: the gathers on this dress, the detailing on the neckline and the femininity of it all match up to ninetails pretty well.
2: alexis mabille and dragonair: the seamless blue column, the sheer neck and even the hair are reminiscent of this graceful dragon pokemon.
3: givenchy and jigglypuff: she’s wearing a jigglypuff, i swear to god.
4: chanel and jolteon: the sharp collar, jewel detailing and vibrant nature of this piece are a perfect fit for jolteon (evolved form of eevee when you use a thunder stone, duh)
5: christian dior and articuno: grey breasted bird with long regal tail? can you even tell if i’m talking about the model or the pokemon? it’s especially fitting because articuno is one of the legendary pokemon, just as galliano and dior are legendary.
it’s not so far fetched to think of these light-hearted similarities. have a great day all.*note to pokemon fans: this is limited to the original 151 pokemon because i stopped playing after pokemon sapphire
