Yellow Treehouse

This is a restaurant built in a Redwood tree 10 meters up. Instead, I would like it to become my new place of residence. Just another reason to visit New Zealand. *Sigh*
Read more about the project!

Jamie Lidell - A Little Bit Of Feel Good

Little bit of funk. Little bit of soulful singing. Little bit of the equine persuation. Lotta bit of greatness.

jj - baby

The best adjective I can think of to describe this song is Dreamy.
P.S. This song is actually a cover.
Some more info....."JJ are a group. Little to no information is available on the band’s members Joakim Benon and Elin Kastlander. The band have been championed by online publication Pitchfork, being rated as one of the top bands of 2009. "

Jamie Cullum - Please Don't Stop The Music (Rihanna Cover)

Even though Jamie Cullum makes this song jazzy and I think it's fantastic, I can't listen to it without hearing original beat in my head and imagining many dance parties.

notebook doodles

There is a lovely blog called notebook doodles.
There are many cute and clever sayings drawn on to pretty pictures.
She takes requests too!
She also has a little book of lyrics and a little book of crushes (which is where the top picture came from).

Rosemary Clooney in White Christmas

If I am ever rich enough to have a dress especially made for me I think it might look something extremely similar to this dress worn by Rosemary Clooney in White Christmas. All the curves are so beautiful! Let's also take a second to recognize that George Chakiris, who later went on to play Bernardo in West Side Story, is one of the dancers.

I posted previously about White Christmas here.

Merry Punjabi Christmas!!

Fun. is made up of Nate Ruess (who's voice you'll recognize from The Format), Andrew Dost ( of Anathallo) and Jack Antonoff (of Steel Train). The trio's debut album Aim and Ignite appeared on many Best Of lists this year.

(Since Imeem ruined all our lives and was bought out by Myspace I don't know of a good way to put music on my blog. Until then, youtube will have to do.)

Happy Christmas Eve!!!

Fantastic Wedding Invitation

Isn't that clever!

SYTYCD Season 6 Top 20 Group Dance

It was just so good!

Saturday, December 19, 2009


I first saw the trailer for this movie a year ago and by the powers of Redbox I finally saw it this afternoon. It was so great! Penelope was such a sweet, fun, creative movie and I recommend you all see it. The dreamy James McAvoy is also part of it which should be more incentive. Also, the character of Penelope is refreshingly strong unlike many other female portrayals we see nowadays. The trailer for this movie is also where I first heard one of my favorite songs.

Camera Obscura - French Navy

As Deb said "And if 'French Navy' doesn't make your heart pang even just a little bit - I hate to break it to you, but you may not have a heart."

I take you seriously

"I feel most movies I see don’t take me seriously. It’s like they think I’m 16 or something. Or they don’t realize that I’m sitting in a movie theater and there’s nothing else going on. They don’t need to fight for my attention. They got my attention. They can be comfortable, it’s fine."

All That Glitters...

Via: The Drifter and The Gypsy

F. U. Penguin

F. U. Penguin is a blog by someone who got tired of all the hoopla around cute little animals. Now there is a place where those fuzzy animals get told off in a slew of insults and profanity. Here are some examples...

What are you, in the witness protection program? Or is that supposed to be ironic and you actually hate beards? Honestly, Tamarin, I think it's time to move on to a style that says something other than "I'm a really big fan of the TV show 'Kung Fu.'" And the tail, GOOD FUCKING GOD, MONKEY. There's no excuse for keeping yourself in such shoddy condition. ARE YOU A FUCKING CLEVELAND BROWNS FAN? I'm sure you've gotten away with a lot up to this point in your life because you are a monkey, and the more you look like an old man the more attention you get. But it's time to grow up, Tamarin. Take some responsibility for your actions.

You want a piece of me, Hyrax? I will fucking destroy you. Oh, your closest living relative is the elephant? An animal that is afraid of a mouse? Well guess what, pussy, I share a bunch of DNA with the chimpanzee. They don't even get mad, they store that shit in their heads and make a plan, Hyrax. And then they fucking play for keeps. Just like me, Hyrax. Just like me. So you think I'm afraid of your vampire teeth and poorly developed internal temperature regulation? No fucking way, Hyrax. So get a couple of your buddies, a makeshift knife, and some pillowcases and meet me in fifteen minutes. Because it's fucking on, Hyrax. Oghadisthatababyonyou? And another one? How come they look so creepy and yet so disgustingly cute? WHAT DO THEY KNOW THAT I DON'T KNOW. Oh, no. THEY ARE MULTIPLYING. You win this round, Hyrax. You can have my apple. Just don't let them bring western civilization to its knees.

What's with the stupid pose, Cat? I'm sure you think you are just headed for the Sears catalog now... or you are making fun of people who are headed for the Sears catalog. I'm going to be honest with you, Cat, you look like a total loser, so I really hope this isn't your laid-back-but-sophisticated look. On the other hand, if you're really trying to make an ironic statement about funny photo portraits in a turn-of-the-century trucker-hat kind of way, then a. I hate you and b. you really should have gone all way. So either way, fuck you, Cat. The hours of Photoshop I will get out of you cannot heal the part of my soul you have destroyed. But I will try, Cat. I. will. try.

Post Secret Video - What's your secret?

PostSecret: Confessions on Life, Death and God from Frank Warren on Vimeo.

My favorite is the couple.

Also, how does that camera make everyone look so beautiful?

In case you missed it...

This performance was phenomenal to say the least. Check out when the 3 dancers do the series of flying scissor kicks in perfect unison. Ridiculous.

LXD Trailers

LXD "Moments" Trailer from Jon M. Chu on Vimeo.

Directed by Step Up 2's Jon M Chu, LXD is going to be an online series that seems to depict dancers like superheros. But not in a cheesy way, more like an alternate reality of awesome kind of way. Tomorrow (Wednesday) members of LXD will be performing on So You Think You Can Dance and it's probably going to be amazing. If you have a sharp eye you'll notice Harry Shum in there. He's currently on Glee and also was in Step Up 2. You're also going to want to watch these trailers all blown up on full screen.
