A long time ago I said I was going to start doing more menswear posts. I haven’t really lived up to that, so here’s my way of making it up to you. Recently I found a new place to get much better images of menswear so the quality issue I was having is fixed, huzzah. Over the weekend somebody left a message in my ask box to do Mrs. Lovett and Sweeney Todd. I love the story and can’t believe I didn’t think of it before. For those who need a refresh—Sweeney Todd is the story of Benjamin Barker the barber and his twisted revenge lust. After a wicked judge’s eye falls on his wife and he is banished for crimes he didn’t commit, he returns to London to get his life back. As fate would have it, his shop is now above Mrs. Lovett’s meat pies. Mrs. Lovett welcomes him back and informs him of his wife’s death at the hands of the evil judge and the whereabouts of . Long story short—lots of people die when they go to get a shave. Awesome.

with yesterday’s zelda post, i figured today would be a good day for link. link is the hero of the legend of zelda, whether it’s ocarina of time, the wind fish egg, a link to the past, majora’s mask, twilight princess, wind waker or any of the other ones that have sucked my life away. anyway, link has three different tunics that give him different abilities. the first is the green tunic—your standard ensemble for hanging around hyrule market or kokiri forest. the red tunic protects him from fire and the blue tunic allows him to breathe underwater (best used with iron boots). basically, the legend of zelda is awesome and now that i’ve been blogging about it for two days…i may just have to start playing again.

continuing with franny and zooey, here’s zooey. zoeey is 25 and the second youngest of the glass children. he often battles with self identity and blames this on his older siblings who exposed him to philosophy at an early age. as a result of this exposure, zooey believes he’ll never be able to look at humanity quite like everybody else. aside from his resentment, he’s described as the most handsome of the glass children and seems to have a real negative/almost devil may care attitude about life. who could blame him?
