Garrett Neff, Enough Said

Sweet freaking glorious Garrett Neff. Even with a sweater on, I'm swooning. Come on, this isn't even human. He needs a twin.

Marc Jacobs + Fuzzy Wuzzy = Winter!

I hate winter. I HATE winter. Yea, that much. I just don't like being in St. Louis when the wind chills dip into the negatives. Why would you subject yourself to that? In any case, to shield myself from the deathly cold, I don't need a car with seat heaters, I just need this deliriously beautiful Marc Jacobs Classic Chesterfield! It's fuzzy like the Prada yeti/shag carpet coats from last year, but actually wearable and extremely desirable. I love charcoal, I love warm and fuzzy, I don't love the $2280 price tag. Crap.

A Quirky Seattle - Oh You!

American Journeys - A Quirky Seattle That Won’t Quite Blend In -

Yea, they're totally silly. But this line slays me:

"Andy Martin, 34, a Fremontian who designs 'beeps and explosions' for video games, said he was drawn to the neighborhood partly by all the conversation-fodder art, including the Lenin statue."

His Words

So, so crazy. John McCain clearly knows how to make himself look good. Vote Obama!

I Just Might Have To Watch 'Twilight'

Because Robert Pattinson is GORGEOUS. All-caps gorgeous. Absurdly, insanely, disturbingly gorgeous in that dirty kind of way. The way you don't really want to explain to people, because it's ravishing and probably very inappropriate. There's absolutely no reason for me to watch Twilight, a movie based on books I had never even heard of and concerning a subject I don't give a damn about. But holy shit, I could stare at him for hours. Hours I should be doing homework. Like right now. But all I really wanna do is swoon.

In Case You Forgot What Garrett Neff Looks Like...

Model Survivor : Guest Judging! : Hunk du Jour

Here's a friendly reminder! Thanks Calvin Klein! Even more gratuitous Neff at that site.

Seattle Sounders + Calvin Klein Underwear Model = Holy $H1T

ESPNsoccernet - MLS - Ljungberg set to sign for Seattle

Yea, that's right. The absolute hottest Calvin Klein underwear model (excluding Garrett Neff, of course) is coming to Seattle. Holy crap. That's the best news ever. Combine Seattle's rainy weather and a really hot soccer player and you get a really wet, really hot soccer player. Hehehe. Now here's hoping Garrett Neff...enrolls at UW?

Tony Perkins = IMBECILE

A Line in the Sand for Same-Sex Marriage Foes -

This man is an idiot:

"Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, a conservative Christian lobby based in Washington, said in an interview, 'It’s more important than the presidential election.'

'We’ve picked bad presidents before, and we’ve survived as a nation,' said Mr. Perkins, who has made two trips to California in the last six weeks. 'But we will not survive if we lose the institution of marriage.'"

So, please, if you're registered to vote in California, vote HELL FUCKING NO on Proposition 8.

Seattle + Credit Crisis = Crap Skylines

Local News | Downtown slowdown: Seattle, Bellevue building projects take a hit | Seattle Times Newspaper

Aw crap! Well, it really was nice while it lasted. It'd be nice to have a glittering new skyline with actual people living and working inside, but that may be many, many more years away.

Delicious Paula

Paula Deen is a goddess. A delicious butterball of a goddess. If she were my personal chef, well, I might just die and go to heaven right now. Yea, I probably would die, either from a heart attack or a stroke, I can't decide which. But it would all be worth it for just one night with Paula's incredible Disco Fries. Diner 24 in New York makes a version with brie and truffle sauce. God, I'm starving right now.

Yea, that's right, OMFGG! That may be the greatest title ever for the soundtrack from a television show. Thank you "Gossip Girl" music genius Alex Patsavas. Except for the occasional misstep (acoustic Fergie...), the show is nearly flawless with capturing the zeitgeist. Like "The O.C." with less awkwardness. It's seriously worth checking out, here!

What In The Hell Is Going On Here?

Oh, Sarah Palin, you blow my mind. But not in that fantastic Tina Fey kind of way. In this surreal juncture of 30 Rock awesomeness and SNL insanity, we not only get to see perfect Tina Fey impersonating Sarah Palin once again, but also a glimpse into Ms. Palin's future career as a...television personality? Lordy, lordy, this nightmare is almost ending!

If You're Somehow Still Rich...

This lambskin jacket from Rick Owens on eLuxury may be the absolute most spectacular garment a guy can put on this autumn. Rick Owens uses the most buttery-soft distressed leather available, far softer than Mike & Chris or any other purveyor of desirable goods. This stuff is edgy but wearable, and certainly far cheaper than what girls wearing Balmain and even Nina Ricci are shelling out. So, if despite the economy, you still have a few bucks left in the bank to burn, there are really no better options than this jacket, a shield against the crisp autumn air...and possibly against anybody thinking you're afraid of this recession. You lucky bastards.

Dutch Fast Food...

...because those two double cheeseburgers from McDonald's last night aren't sitting too well. In any case, the chain is popping into an old McDonald's location in Midtown, and the menu sounds absurdly delicious (think bacon, egg and potato filled fried fritters, or the same with mac 'n cheese). They're also apparently working on being eco-friendly. Kill your hearts while saving the world! Go figure. I'm totally there.

Silly Models! Stay On Your Feet!

When you look into the eyes of 16 year-old Abbey Lee Kershaw, you don't exactly see a glowing, happy high school girl, do you? Alas, near the end of a long day, in which she woke up at 5 am and walked her last show more than 15 hours later, Abbey was nearly done with her stroll in Alexander McQueen's presentation when she fainted just before leaving the stage. Yikes. I suppose the leather corset she's wearing may be somewhat worrisome, but I think a lot of it has to do with the monthlong marathon of fashion shows that she has struggled through. Just a few weeks back in New York, Abbey also took a spill at the Rodarte show in her extremely high platforms and tight pants. Dangerous shoes are apparently a trend for Spring 2009, but if models can't navigate the runways in them, how are civilians going to traverse the less-than-ideal streets of New York? On a side note, the Alexander McQueen show was exceptionally beautiful.
