I’ve got Lanvin on the brain after seeing those ads. Enjoy the fall collection.
Balenciaga Fall 2007 – 2008 Collection Video – no sound unfortunately
I thought the collection was a little all over the place. However, the fashion elite loved it. The clothes do look better on the video than in print.
I wanted an excuse to post some Bjork videos. So here are some videos in which I really enjoy the look.
Oceania – I want a crystal face too
Isobel – She’s rocking that great metallic dress
Who is it?
All is full of love – just for kicks and god I love this version
My favourite alien looking model had a spot recently on CNN.
It’s funny that CNN is just talking about the Russian model craze. Where the hell have you guys been?
Only the Japanese. So ridiculous.
Well then, you’re an idiot. Sorry, but it needs to be said. Check out the new video from her upcoming album Volta, Earth Intruders.
I’m going to be on tv again. This has been the year of the television appearances for yours truly. People are even telling me that I should change careers, lol. I hate tv though, and after being on it I still hate it. Doesn’t matter what you do, you always end up looking like an idiot. I was glad they left the snorting laugh after the technosexual description in the Citytv International CK in2u clip, that was hilarious. I’m not nervous or anything in front of the camera but it’s surreal. That being said, I probably wouldn’t turn down another interview, what the hell is the matter with me? Opening Soon and Citytv International were two strange, out of the blue, random things that happen on the fly short. The filming of both clips took place over a 24hr period.
I will be on Opening Soon by Design on HGTV. It all stems from this article I wrote for blogTO on Aiyoku Cardio Lounge. In that post I write
It’s Thursday night and I’m on my way to Liberty Village for the opening of a new boutique gym. These types of specialized gyms are popping up all over the city looking to bring in people who don’t particularly like the environment Goodlife or YMCA offers. As I walk into the basement of the Carpet Factory building, I’m asked to sign a wavier before entering. It seems there is a television crew filming the opening party. I’m a little surprised to find this out and sign it, believing that I’ll keep myself out of sight during my stay.
My strategy didn’t work and I got surprised while I was salivating over the new Precor treadmills and ellipticals. It was a really great party and everyone was super nice. I can’t wait to see the show because I heard stories about putting the place together. I was chatting with one of the contractors and we bonded over world war 2. It was actually quite touching.
Anyways, here is the airing schedule.
Monday, March 26, 9:30 PM EST
Tuesday, March 27, 12:30 AM EST
Tuesday, March 27, 3:30 AM EST
Monday, April 2, 3:00 AM EST
If anyone has the ability to record this show and send it to me please do, It would be grand. (is it illegal to ask, eep :O)
Yes, that picture is of me. This post is about me, so I needed a picture of me. I decided to use the funniest picture of me I had. This is also one of my favourites of me. It was taken by my friend Paul Baik. Where the hell are the rest of the photos Paul?
Check out this video bite from Mackage.

I somehow managed to get myself on television on Friday. Citytv international’s Amber MacArthur was doing a piece on the new Calvin Klein perfume in2u and I guess I was the subject matter expert. The marketing is just nutty for this brand. Here is an example of the crap they are coming up with.
“We have envisioned this as the first fragrance for the technosexual generation,â€ said Mr. Murry, using a term the company made up to describe its intended audience of thumb-texting young people whose romantic lives are defined in part by the casual hookup.
Last year, the company went so far as to trademark “technosexual,â€ anticipating it could become a buzzword for marketing to millennials, the roughly 80 million Americans born from 1982 to 1995. A typical line from the press materials for CK in2u goes like this: “She likes how he blogs, her texts turn him on. It’s intense. For right now.â€
She likes how he blogs, her texts turn him on. BARF! This drivel is just not computing in my brain. I refuse to believe they are serious about trying to market this to the blogging crowd!

It’s weird being reduced to a few sound bits but to expand on my last point. While I like to think that blogging is mainstream, it’s not the case and for now there are many people who will believe in the Calvin Klein version of the Internet generation.
Buzzfeed has been tracking the best Technosexuals links across the web.
It must of sucked to be working the Viktor & Rolf Fall Winter 2007 Ready-to-Wear Runway show. They put them in those horrible harnesses, check the video, those poor girls. And those shoes, awful.
