A somber Friday in honor of two greats that have left this world:
RIP Jubei & John Hughes
The first, a beloved doggy and brilliant swimmer belonging to very dear friends. He will be missed, he's been an awesome, tolerant friend to my bitchy little Lily & Maggie, a gracious host to them when we've gone on trips. I am forever grateful.
The second, obviously, the creator of some of the most relevant movies of our youth. I can't tell you how many times I've watched Ferris Bueller's Day Off, no joke. Of all the movies in the WORLD I've seen it the most. breakfast club, sixteen candles, pretty in pink!!!!!!!!
do you have that soundtrack!? if no, GET. it's brilliant, it epitomizes that era. I LOVE.
Check out the track listing:
1. If You Leave - Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark
2. Left of Center - Suzanne Vega w/ Joe Jackson
3. Get to Know Ya - Jesse Johnson
4. Do Wot You Do - INXS
5. Pretty in Pink - The Psychedelic Furs
6. Shellshock - New Order
7. Round, Round - Belouis Some
8. Wouldn't It Be Good - Danny Hutton Hitters
9. Bring on the Dancing Horses - Echo & The Bunnymen
10. Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want This Time - The Smiths
So yeah, today I'm reflecting. But ALSO looking forward! Tomorrow night
we're off to South Beach, Miami to see Deadmau5 at Mansion. Not familiar? Like dance music? Check him out. He performed at Ultra Music Festival this past March and his grooves are truly penetrating and infectious. Have a listen here. He definitely grabs your attention live in his hilarious & cool oversized mouse heads. I highly recommend you listen to Ghosts 'n' Stuff & Sometimes Things Get, Whatever, (the latter isn't on his myspace page right now but if you want to hear it, search it, you'll find it. I LOVE IT.)
I'm happy to report I worked on my DIY hoodie a bit more last night... It will definitely be a slow go. I've been scouring ebay & etsy for excellent
additions to it. SO MUCH out there! It's going to be amazing, someday. But here's what I did last night... Ha ha, yeah, small progress from one photo to the next. Can you spot the difference? ;-)
I wish you an ab fab weekend... Love to you all. And would LOVE to hear from you!
