One of my favorite parts of the Morbid Curiosity reading at the Hypnodrome was to see what the performers chose to wear.  Russell Blackwood sported an exquisite black on black smoking jacket, which imparted a nice sense of decadence to the evening.  Dana Fredsti went with courtesan chic to read...

   I'm weary of  dressing like an entertainer. Actress  Sarah Jessica Parker recently inked a deal with the fashion company Halston.   Lindsay Lohan  served as a design advisor  for Emanuel Ungaro   Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie both have clothing lines.  So do Beyonce, P. Diddy, Russell...

I was never a nerd. Never needed glasses, never used a pocket protector,   or showed up to school sporting the absolutely terribly wrong what-was-she-thinking look.  A required blue plaid school uniform saved me a lot of emotional trauma.  Or so I thought. Then I checked out the latest fashion...

  I dab a little behind my ear and look in the mirror. Does this make my hair look big? It definitely looks darker. And have my blue eyes turned. . .? Oop, just a second. I got a Tweet. It's Ashton. He's all-a-Twitter, blabbing to the world about our love. Again. That boy is crazy for me. And...

Youth is not wasted on the young. At least, some of them are fully exploiting their wrinkle free skin and knock knee cuteness. Or, more likely, they have hella good stage mothers. Almost a year ago, I wrote a blog for OregonLive, the web site of The Oregonian newspaper. I was a staff writer at the...

Blog is an extension of what I used to transcribe pen and ink into a hardcopy journal and/or writer's scrapbook. Blog is better, in part because it makes it easier to retrieve pastings from days, weeks, months, years ago... stories, images and info I may need later and need quickly... so what I...

I've always had a strong sense of personal style. I knew it even as a young girl growing up in addis Ababa, Ethiopia's capital city. When I was 12 years old, the disco era was in full swing. Afro hairdos, bell-bottom pants, miniskirts and platform shoes were all the rage. It was a loud and splashy...

Yep. Believe it or not, the Ralph Lauren model above has not been manipulated. At least not by me. By Ralph's fashion empire. He placed her in a slightly different context however. Note the body types though. Spot any differences? I cannot believe in 2009 we still have to vomit our guts out, or...

   So you go to the farmers' market to buy produce,  drink organically grown fair trade coffee, and listen to indie music.   Are you really going to wear a little dress mass produced by desperate children in developing nations? It's cheap, sure, but doesn't it make you feel an itsy bit dirty? Do...

Why does he document himself aging? Every five years he makes a mould of his face, fills it with 10 pints of blood. The sculptures are then kept in a box filled with silica and chilled to minus 18 degrees Celsius to prevent them from turning to liquid. Precious. An ode to life frozen and afraid of...
