I think this is the third time I’ve posted about Daisy Buchanan, but the hubub about the upcoming movie put me in the mood to look at The Great Gatsby. Daisy is married to Tom Buchanan and is in love with Jay Gatsby, commonly known to all American High School Students as The Great Gatsby. And certainly, after the movie comes out, they’ll all know him as Leonardo DiCaprio. Shame. At the climax of the book, shit gets out of hand and Daisy basically ruins as many lives as she can in one night. Stupid Daisy, you used to be cool.

With the return of True Blood, everybody’s favorite pornographic program with a strong storyline, I was thinking about vampires. Of course, when anybody with half a brain and a weird reading list thinks of vampires, they think of Bram Stoker and the original tale. I’ve posted on Dracula before, his victims and his wives. But, Prada Fall 2012 in specific read very Nosferatu, so I figured it was worth revisiting. So here he is, the original blood sucking BAMF, Dracula.

Currently on a train back home to New York. In a quick ode to that there video I made, here’s a gif of Prada Fall 2012. Prints on prints on prints makes Homer go something something.
Note: these look much better if you view them here.
Rise and shine kiddos. For the past few weeks, I’ve been working on this video. Last night, after 6 straight episodes of Game of Thrones, I finally finished. I took a few of my favorite fall 2012 collections and animated up right nice. They’re not necessarily my top collections from all over but they’re all great. Press play, hope you like it.
