Itar is my Italian cobbler. I don't see him often, but when I do, he is always looking for an engagement ring, asking me about my marital status, and giving me some life lessons. So I thought that I'd share some of the stuff that he told me about today:
- men are pigs, even married men. The older they get, the bigger the pig
- men are all the same
- women are pigs too
- the majority of women in North America dresses for comfort, re: they dress like shit
- children are like a little "lock" between the parents. If a couple has a place together, that would be even better 'cause that would make a man think twice before he cheats
- don't give your man a reason to cheat on you, keep in shape, dress feminine, comb your hair, and put on some makeup
I wonder what lessons await me when I pick up my shoes??

Lucy Li, you need to fire your stylist/mom.
I realise that you are 11yo, but keep it simple. It looks as though you're wearing a quilt made out of recycled American flags. Tacky.

(BSS was at the height of their popularity with the release of their '02 album, We Forgot It In People, but I just stopped following them shortly thereafter. 2002 was eons ago and they just don't speak to me anymore. Plus, it was chilly and rainy and I wasn't dressed properly!)
The first clip is of their last year's hit, The Mother We Share.
The second clip is of Martin Doherty doing his thang. Don't ask me the name of this song. I don't know the band super well, so I was just caught off-guard by his performance/energy...which was a good thing!
I was actually surprised by the sheer number of male fans that this group had who knew the words to every song. I dunno why, perhaps it's because the lead singer, Lauren Mayberry has such a delicate, girly voice?
Aside from CHVRCHES + poutine from The Poutine Machine food truck - it was o-k - that was 'bout it for Day 2. I knew about the rain, but I had not anticipated it being soo chilly and I was wearing a sundress. So I had an umbrella, but nothing really covering my shoulders, aside from a thin, muslin scarf, or legs.
The day was a bit miserable and with its grayness also toned down the Festival costumes. Other than a whole group of tweens dressing alike, I did not see a whole lot of fashion faux-pas. Maybe that's a good thing?
Most of the festival goers were dressed as though they were camping. So it was pretty chill/dullsville.
Until next year? Line-up dependent that is...

a.k.a. "The World's Most Desirable Men"
One question: Why isn't this on primetime television...with a Speedo portion?
One observation: There is a notable cultural difference between the Latinos Vs. the Asians, excluding Philippines ('cause he's kinda mixed), in terms of their topless photos!
Click here to check out the rest of the candidates, including Mr. Venezuela, Jesus Antonio CASANOVA!!!

As a part of my winning streak - not sure if you'd qualify one night as a 'streak' - I won a pair of weekend passes to Field Trip, a.k.a. The Canadian Coachella...with a more chill, shoegazery playlist of bands - except for f*cked up. They're a different story. ;)
Thank you, Yelp Toronto!
(Weekend Passes were $125, so this isn't something that I'd pay to go to. Single Day Passes were just under $80, including a service charge, so it ain't exactly a cheap affair! Not to mention the $9 tallboys, average $10 trip to the food trucks, and $14 for parking.)
Due to some conflicts on Saturday, I missed Half Moon Run :( and Vance Joy :(((. I was only able to catch the last act and headliner, Interpol who I just stayed for the sake of participating in at least 1 thing that day!
Festival-wise, Saturday was more or less a write-off for me.
Here's a clip of a BIG, hunk of an Aussie with a small ukelele...

I just finished watching this. It's sorta like a British version of American Pie...with clotted cream.
(Speaking of clotted cream, it's quite difficult to find in the grocery store! I mean, I only looked at one major chain and couldn't find it, so I'm assuming that it's equally as difficult to find elsewhere.)
After this series ended in '10, they released a movie in 2011 of literally 4 guy friends who try to lose their virginity. I watched the movie shortly after it came out and that's how I heard about the tv show.
MTV attempted an American version of this series, but failed as it was cancelled after one season.
Anyway, Brit comedies are sorta hit 'n miss with me, but this one is definitely a hit!
