Cranberry Festival in Eagle River, WI

2011-12-15T03:38:39.675-08:00

I arrived back home yesterday -- one day later than expected. I wanted to see the movie, Money Ball, in Marquette. Plus I decided to visit with friends, Helen and Jimmie. After arriving home, I unpacked the car and set up the museum's gift shop. There are a lot of fall color people in the area, so I opened the museum for a few hours yesterday and will do the same for the next few days. If you want to get into the museum, however, it would still be better for you to set up an appointment by sending me an email to karen@agatelady.com or calling 906-494-2590.Last weekend I exhibited my mineral art at the Cranberry Festival in Eagle River, WI. It is a huge show with nearly 300 vendors and over 20,000 attendees -- all in a town of 1,500 people. It is always a mad scramble to set up the booth. I changed location this year, however, to the other side of the big tent so it was easier to get the car close to my booth space.  That is important when you have to carry rocks!Apparently the northern Wisconsin area is one of the largest producers of cranberries in the country.  There were cranberry products located throughout the fairgrounds.As I said, my booth was in the large tent located near the back of the fairgrounds.  I pay extra to be inside the tent so that I don't have to set up my own tent.  This strategy backfired a bit because of the low nightly temperatures.  Due to cold temperatures in the mid-20s, frost built up on the inside of the large tent.  I used a towel to scrape off what I could reach, but as the rest melted it dripped on everything.  I'll have to think about setting up a tent inside the tent next year as many of the other artists did.My booth was inside the right hand section of the big tent, on the right just as you entered.  I'll probably try to keep this location in future years.There were lots of people......Here is a shot of my booth.  Jill is in the middle helping customers.  Thanks, Jill, for your help during the show!The selection of items for sale is better at this show than at any other event that I attend.This year we stayed at Edgewood Inn.  It is located right on the river.  It was such a beautiful night that Jill and I decided to rent one of the canoes.  I own two, but due to my busy schedule they have not been in the water in two years.  Thus, it was great to be out on the water paddeling.  I do love to canoe.When I went out to the car to get something, I just had to capture a shot of the quarter moon.[...]

"Anonymous" The Movie--Nick Verreos Weighs in on the Costumes for myLifetime.com!!!

2011-12-14T09:05:14.030-08:00

Was Shakespeare A Fraud? Don't know but the Costumes are FABULOUS!!On October 28th, a new Costume Period Drama will debut in theaters: "Anonymous". The movie involves the controversial question: Was Shakespeare a Fraud? "Anonymous" is a political thriller advancing the theory that it was in fact Edward De Vere, Earl of Oxford who penned Shakespeare's plays; set against the backdrop of the succession of Queen Elizabeth I, and the Essex Rebellion against her. It stars Vanessa Redgrave as the older Elizabeth I, Joely Richardson as the younger, Rhys Ifans as the 17th Earl of Oxford and supposed actual "William Shakespeare". It is directed by Roland Emmerich.I was asked to comment on the fabulous costumes (via stills of the film) which were created by Costume Designer Lisy Christl, on the myLifetime.com site and I just jumped at the chance!!Here's a "Corset-and-Jerkin" Amuse Bouche: Fashion Diva In-The-MakingThe younger Princess Elizabeth Tudor: Although we are accustomed to seeing the over-the-top images of “The Queen” in all her regal splendor, here she is as a “younger, fresher” royal (portrayed by Joely Richardson). Still, she stands out, because of the sumptuousness of her light blue brocade silk gown...continue reading A Red (BROCADE) Carpet Showdown Earl of Oxford:The young Earl of Oxford is being introduced here to his tutors and as any Renaissance Fashion Dandy would know, this was a perfect time to "bring it" in terms of dressing!

Runway Report: Paris Fashion Week Spring 2012--Alexander McQueen

2011-12-14T09:05:14.030-08:00

Wow.Alexander McQueen Spring/Summer 2012Creative Director and Head Designer for Alexander McQueen, Sarah Burton, showed her latest offering for Spring/Summer 2012 at Paris Fashion Week and one word: Wow. It was as if the Ghost of "Lee" was right there! At first glance, it seemed "Bondage Inspired" (the face masks, the UBER tight corsetry) but in a way it wasn't. As Sarah Burton stated on the McQueen website "I was thinking about a woman as an object of desire. We go to such lengths to adorn ourselves that we almost become our clothes or are taken over by them. This is a collection about excess - an exploration of ideals of beauty at their most extreme.” It was exquisite and VERY McQueen. The show began with suiting that was T-T-TIGHT. A very strong emphasis on the shoulder as well as the longer skirt length--below the knee (approx 26"-30" from the natural waist) and tiered ruffles at the hem of those skirts. The hips were exaggerated--especially in the Finale Gowns. You know that rule of "Don't put anything there that might make a woman's hips bigger". Sarah Burton doesn't give a DAMN!Alexander McQueen Spring/Summer 2012The brocade and jacquard-like prints were stunning--and done in suitings with ruffled peplums as well as Baby Doll Dresses so romantic and so NOT Bondage.Alexander McQueen Spring/Summer 2012Every single garment was almost Museum-worthy. I doubt that most of these will even make it to your local McQueen boutique (I'll be very surprised if any of these do--maybe the suitings and "toned-down" version of the dresses). But who cares; I can't wait for the next Alexander McQueen Exhibition to see these up close and personal! I'm sure, though--that a lot of the gowns and dresses will make the Red Carpet for sure! Speaking of Red Carpet, lots of lace, impeccable applique, embroidery and high-low gowns (Sorry Miss Kelly Osborne! I know how much she HATES those "Mullet Dresses" on her show Fashion Police--I LOVE them!!!)Alexander McQueen Spring/Summer 2012Besides the "Homage to the Exaggeration of Women" and Bondage sub-theme, the entire show was also based on the Ocean, underwater, and creatures whom live beneath. These were Underwater GODDESSES. The coral-embroidered Baby Dolls and gowns were stupendous.Alexander McQueen Spring/Summer 2012And the Finale Gowns were armored sequined and metallic Bondage-meets-Oceania Empresses. I hope Alexander McQueen was smiling from up there! Well done Sarah Burton. It shook me just a little bit...and I like that!Click Below for the Full Alexander McQueen Spring/Summer 2012 Runway Video: src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/UIjf9QMbg_w?rel=0" allowfullscreen="" width="640" frameborder="0" height="360">[...]



Spaghettification!

2011-12-15T03:38:39.675-08:00


Earlier this week, a second grader asked me what would happen if an astronaut fell into a black hole. "Well, what do you think might happen?" I responded back. Another anxious second grader waved his hand high. "You would get stretched out like a noodle!" he said. Very good! These second graders know more about black holes than I thought! If an astronaut were to fall into a black hole, the gravity at the persons feet would be stronger than at their head, effectively stretching their bodies as thin as spaghetti. So guess what astronomers call that effect…. Spaghettification! No joke!

Runway Report: Paris Fashion Week Spring 2012--Chanel

2011-12-14T09:05:14.030-08:00

Karl "Prospero" and his Underwater Runway Extravaganza:Chanel Spring/Summer 2012Two days ago, Karl Lagerfeld showed his beautiful Chanel Spring/Summer 2012 Collection during Paris Fashion Week. He transformed the Grand Palais--the site of all his runway shows, into a magical underwater world. Just wait until you see the beginning of the video below. The stage is INSANE! All I kept thinking about was "Wow, look what perfumes and purses can buy you!". The collection, which consisted of over 8o looks (!), was a success, according to all who were there. He began with modern interpretations of the Chanel suit, in soft tweeds, boucle's, in white, cremes, light lemons, pastel-y pinks, turquoise and black.Chanel Spring/Summer 2012Lots of Spring-like prints, chiffon's, fluttery ruffle dresses and blouses. Shoes were either sandals or flat booties in leather and metallics. NO heels in sight. He also showed some fabulous swimsuits toward the end which you can see in the runway video. They looked like "Sports Illustrated Mermaids" rising from the sea!Chanel Spring/Summer 2012For evening, it was relaxed, yet very LUXE glamour, with printed silk dresses, lots hitting "tea"-length with sequin embellishments. Stiffer silk gazar's, organza's, and/or iridescent satins added lots of texture and an architectural element. Lots of shoulder interest--which remains a strong trend.Chanel Spring/Summer 2012Chanel Spring/Summer 2012Also, look for the "Voluminous Sheath" where it's fitted up top but then softly leads into interesting shapes from the high-waist down. All in all--at least from seeing the photos and the video--a beautiful, modern collection. Bravo Karl and his team! You'll probably see ten out of the 80+ looks in the stores come next Spring , but who cares, the show was glorious! Speaking of the show--did I mention Florence Welch of Florence and The Machine performed. Yep. Again, what perfumes and purses can buy you darlings!Click Below for the Full Chanel Spring/Summer 2012 Runway Video: src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/spyfBZrw_-k?rel=0" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="360" width="640">[...]

Royal Fashion Minute: Cayetana Duchess of Alba Gets Married-The Dress, The Dish, The Guests, Video!

2011-12-14T09:05:14.031-08:00

La Duquesa Se Caso!!!Happy Couple: Duchess of Alba and her new husband Alfonso Diez Yesterday, the Most Titled Woman on Earth got married. Yes, one of my favorite subjects here on my blog, the Duchess of Alba (one of her many, many, many titles), María del Rosario Cayetana Fitz-James Stuart y Silva, 18th Duchess of Alba de Tormes, 85 , got married to her civil servant "Boy Toy", Alfonso Diez, who happens to be 60. This is her third wedding. And Good For Her! The Duchess, as you may know is Spain's premier aristocrat, is a distant relative of King James II of England, Winston Churchill and even Princess Diana.Considered to be one of the richest women in the world, she's worth an estimated (wait for it) 5.5 BILLION Dollars. As a result of this, her children were not very happy when she decided to re-marry, this "late in the game" and to a less-wealthy younger man. So, she decided to give her inheritance to them early--so they would basically shut up. They did. Now, let's get to the Spanish Wedding of the Year:A Palatial Wedding: Secene of Duchess of Alba's Wedding, Las Dueñas Palace in SevilleThe Location: It happened at her Palace in Seville, Las Dueñas, a 16th-century Renaissance estate, which covers 9,542 square meters in the heart of the city. Supporters, well-wishers, fans of the Duchess--as well as press, of course, had gathered there to show their love for Cayetana. (she is ADORED by her country!).No Shows: Eugenia de Irujo, the Duchess's one and only daughter (left)Wedding DISH: Her one and only daughter, Eugenia de Irujo (above left with her mother and future father-in-law) DID NOT attend because supposedly--and conveniently enough--she came down with chickenpox THE NIGHT BEFORE, and was in a hospital in Madrid when her dear mother was getting married. Also, one of her sons, Jacobo also did not show up. He was in France "on vacation" with his wife. Why? It seems that the Duchess was asked last minute if she had any "questions" regarding her children's love for her. And she answered--as she always does--very honestly and basically said "I HATE Jacobo's wife...she's jealous of me and my happiness and fortune!". At-a-Girl. Done and done. Well, I guess that's why someone did not RSVP! Duchess of Alba's Wedding Dress, by Victorio & LucchinoHer Wedding Dress: Cayetana, who's known for her quirky and sometimes very eclectic sense of style, decided to go subdued, cocktail and with a hint of an Homage to her beloved Seville. She wore a custom pale pink silk gauze dress by Spanish designers Victorio & Lucchino, favorites of all the Spanish aristocrat Divas, former Miss Spain's and movie stars, as well. It featured delicate applique' and multi-tiered Andalusian ruffles at the hem, 3/4 bishop sleeves, a lightly blouson top and a green velvet waist tie. Finished off with matching pink ballet flats.Post Wedding Flamenco: Right after saying "I Do", Cayetana and her new husband, walked out of the Palace to greet all the well-wishers and the 85-year-old Duchess broke out into an impromptu Flamenco dance! As Alfonso held on to her, she even kicked off her shoes and began the arm and hand flourishes Flamenco is known for. Well, as you can imagine, the crowd went insane! Olé!The Madrina, or Matron of Honor, Carmen Tello, flanked by Designers Victorio & LucchinoGuests: Other than the two No Shows from her only daughter and one of her sons, the rest of her children were there.[...]

Pretty DiorChristian Dior Spring/Summer 2012Paris Fashion Week Spring 2012 continues and up next is the Christian Dior Spring 2012 Collection. Designer Bill Gaytten (John Galliano's right hand for over a decade)--who was tapped as Galliano's replacement after his escandalo--showed his first pret-a-porter (ready to wear) collection for the famed house. How did he do? Well, according to the editors and press, pretty good. The reviews are in and at least, they were better than what he received from his Dior Haute Couture show several months ago.Dior Creative Director Bill GayttenNow, I'm sure you have been keeping up with all the "Who's Going To Design For Dior" DISH, Gaytten was picked as the "replacement" but word has it that his bosses feel it's a "transitional" position. It has been rumored that possibly Marc Jacobs might take over the Creative Director position. I've read this, so I'm sure Bill has too. It it said that contingent to taking the job, Jacobs would need (among other things, MULTI-MILLIONS!) to bring his entire team as well. Makes sense. But where does that leave Mr. Gaytten. Who knows. As a result of this "I don't know how long I will have my job" situation, Gaytten and his design team, did a just-very-nice job. No earth-shaking editorially-KRAZEE garments here. Just pretty clothes. Very "Lady Dior". Very sellable, which should make the execs happy. But let's be honest, the House of Dior doesn't really care if the clothes sell. It's ALL about the perfumes, sunglasses, and purses darling.Christian Dior Spring/Summer 2012 But back to Gaytten's collection: These were dresses, jackets, skirts, that one could actually SEE in the the Christian Dior boutiques--as opposed to what Galliano did--most of that was Runway-only (which made for great WWD covers and lots and lots of press--good or bad--which in the end, sold more perfumes and sunglasses!). For Spring 2012, Gaytten showed the famed Dior Bar jacket, the late 40's/early 50's style dirndl and pleated full skirts. The Pretty lady-like sheath dresses. Reds, bold prints, bolder sequins and very Upper Class French Aristocrat styles: First Lady of France Carla Bruni-Sarkozy. Totally.Christian Dior Spring/Summer 2012 Capelet dresses were important, especially in light and airy gauze's, chiffon's and organza's.Christian Dior Spring/Summer 2012 In the end of the Christian Dior Spring 2012 Runway show, supermodel Karlie Kloss (far right) sauntered out in a beautiful black lace and chiffon high-necked gown with a sheer single-layer floor-length skirt. As she turned around, all you could focus on was, well, her cheeks--her derrière. It was perfect, of course. Hello, it's Karlie Kloss. But many an editor couldn't help but wonder if showing her "you-know-what" as the FINAL vision one saw in his show--was a subliminal sign to his bosses...Click Below for the Full Runway Show of Christian Dior Spring 2012: src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/LFxde-suB4U?rel=0" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="360" width="640">[...]

Black Holes Don't Suck!

2011-12-15T03:38:39.675-08:00

I'm sure you've heard of a black hole before (If you've been reading ADYK you definitely have!) But what technically is a black hole? What is it made of? What does it do? Astronomers are still a bit uncertain about all of this, but here's what we think…

 
A black hole is defined as a singularity in space. This means that it is a point in space that is infinitely small and has infinite density. It's hard to think of an object like this in real life; one that can continually gain matter but stays extremely small. Most people have the impression that black holes "suck" in all the material around them. While black holes do attract matter, they are not like vacuums in outer space. Black holes warp the space time around them into giant funnels (like the cartoon above). This causes material to orbit black holes and fall towards the center, eventually falling past the point of no return. Because black holes have acquired so much mass, they have a very strong gravitational field. It's so strong that not even light can escape their grasp. This is why astronomers call them black holes. Astronomers still have so much more to learn about these bizarre objects, and as technology improves our knowledge will approve along with it.

Saturn's Rings and Enceladus

2011-12-15T03:38:39.676-08:00

    We all know Saturn as the big outer planet with the rings. Why does Saturn have such beautiful ring structure? Astronomers aren't entirely sure, but they must have formed back when Saturn was just an infant planet. Astronomers can, however, explain the existence of Saturn's outermost ring, the E ring. Where did this ring come from? The culprit is Saturn's Moon Enceladus!
    Above is a recent image taken by the Cassini spacecraft which is currently orbiting Saturn and its moons. As you can see, there appears to be some material erupting from the surface of the moon, and indeed there is! Enceladus experiences what we call cryovolcanism, which means that it has volcanoes which spew water and ammonia when they erupt instead of hot rocky lava. These eruptions are so intense that the material actually leaves the planet and travels into outer space! Since Saturn's rings are so close to Enceladus, the water and other molecules get caught up in Saturn's gravitational field and form the outermost ring. This ring is technically unstable, which means the material will stay for a short time, but then be lost forever into space. That's no big deal though, because Enceladus is continually erupting and adding new material to the E ring.

Style Week OC 2011 Opening Night Party: Fashion, Candy, Prizes, and a BLOG CRUSH!On The OC Big Screen: Style Week OC 2011 Rack Rave Opening Night Party, Irvine Spectrum CenterThis past Friday night I had the honor of hosting the Opening Night of the Fourth Annual Style Week Orange County at the Irvine Spectrum Center in Irvine, California.

Runway Report: Paris Fashion Week Spring 2012--Viktor & Rolf--Photos + Runway Video!

2011-12-14T09:05:14.033-08:00

Doll MuseViktor & Rolf Spring 2012Paris Fashion Week Spring 2012 is in full swing and Saturday was the Viktor & Rolf Spring 2012 runway show. Amsterdam-born designers Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren showed a very colorful collection that had BARBIE written all over it! We all know the duo has a MAJAH doll obsession--no fashionista worth their Louboutin's can ever forget that iconic Russian Doll Collection from their Fall/Winter 1999/2000 Haute Couture Collection. As you will see from the runway video at the end of this post--as well as these photos--from the moment the first model Natasha Poly came out in her synthetic pink eyelashes, over-sized laced-up jacket, skirt and bra-top ensemble, it was Mattel Barbie Land Heaven!Viktor & Rolf Spring 2012They carried the over-sized lacing through out their collection, and everything, from the collars to the blouson Bishop sleeves, was exaggerated 110%. They almost looked like "Valley of The Dolls: The Barbie Edition".Viktor & Rolf Spring 2012Colors were very "Barbie"--bubblegum pinks, deep reds, and royal blues. Lots of swirl-like applique' details as well.Viktor & Rolf Spring 2012The final Ball Gowns were of Couture-like quality. We may never see these in any store. But I have a feeling Katy Perry, Rihanna or Nicki Minaj's stylists might be calling...Speaking of calling, Mattel might need to make some flight reservations to Paris to meet with these two to come up with a Europe-only "Viktor & Rolf Barbie". I, for one, will be ALL over Harrods next year to get that doll!Click Below for Viktor & Rolf Spring 2012 Runway Show: src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/ytCk3taLbjM?rel=0" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="360" width="640">[...]

Project Runway Season 9 Recaps: Episode 10--The Unsophisticated 70's!!!

2011-12-14T09:05:14.034-08:00

A Fashion History Lesson...Marc Jacobs Perry Ellis Grunge Redux, and 80's Vegas Hookers? Yep, It's Project Runwaaaayyyyyy!! Bianca Jagger, 1970s, in Halston one-shoulder dressThis past Thursday on Project Runway Season 9, for the 10th Episode, the remaining designers were given a task: To create two looks that were "Inspired by the Sophisticated 70's". Many of them had quite a problem A) Knowing WHAT the 1970's were and B) Knowing what the "Sophisticated 70's" looked like. For some, BOTH of their looks were off the mark or they either (somewhat) got it with one and not the other. Tim Gunn reminded them not to be "too literal". He deferred to the previous challenge in which it looked as if they were trying to make costume recreations of what they "thought" a 70's Rock Band should look like. I actually wished they would have been LITERAL for this challenge, because the creations might have been much, much better. So with that in mind, I thought I would take a look back at what actually was The Sophisticated 70's:Liz Taylor, Halston and Bianca Jagger (yet again!), in a one-shoulder Halston waist-tie dress and Fox fur stole.A Halston vintage early 70's (I know, looks VERY 2011!), one-shoulder side gathered gown with batwing sleeveLauren Hutton, 1973 U.S. Vogue Magazine editorial, photographed by Richard AvedonThis IS NOT Sophisticated 70's:Bert Keeter: Bert made this mess of an outfit, which included a printed one-shoulder (well, he got that right) blouson top and a detachable matching skirt (why?) with (wait for it), black Hoochie Shorts and then accessorized it with the most AWFUL metallic and wood CLUNKER shoes. She looked like a 1983 Hooker in Las Vegas Strip.Kimberly Goldson: She made this printed top and black skirt outfit that was NOT Sophisticated nor 70's inspired. She looks like a girl in a mall on her lunch break waiting for her Chick Fil-A order.The Winners were:Anya Ayoung-Chee: She created a printed (love the bold print, that's very "sophisticated 70's) palazzo-pant plunging neckline jumpsuit. I can see the nod to the 70's but yet, it's still so NOW. I can see a A LOT of girls wearing this at a Mondrian Sunset Blvd. VIP pool party.Bert Keeter's 2nd creation: A simple two pattern piece (one front, one back) dress in lurex creme and gold jersey, tied with a spaghetti belt. "Someone" better watch his back, because the simplicity (2 pattern pieces) and casual "I'm getting on a yacht to Capri" look of Bert's winning "tank dress" is very...Michael Kors Resort (above)Both Anya and Bert won the honor of having their outfits sold on Piperlime.com. And in case you're wondering Anya and Bert are not making a dime from that (people always wonder and ask...)The Un-Sophisticated Bottom Boys:Joshua McKinley: Joshua got slammed by the judges--critique-wise. I didn't hate it (except for the belt and shoes). It was very Christian Lacroix in its bold print and bold fuchsia-c[...]

Beach, Dunes, Seney Refuge, and Big Springs

2011-12-15T03:38:39.676-08:00

Monday was my sister's last day in Grand Marais, so we took full advantage. After breakfast we first headed up into the dunes. Here is a shot of Diana climbing the "access" dune.Once we climbed another dune or two to get a better view of Lake Superior, we spotted this freighter going by.We also went down the beach to First Creek.  Due to the lack of rain, there is not much of a creek right now.  It doesn't even flow on the surface out to the lake.  It is amazing to think that our father used to fish in this creek.Then we decided to head out of town to do a little sight seeing.  The colors in some of the stretches along the highway were spectacular.Our first stop was the Seney National Wildlife Refuge.  This refuge was created by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1935.  It was carved out of the Great Manistique Swamp by the Civilian Conservation Corps.  Throughout this nearly 96,000 acres of diverse habitat live a wide variety of wildlife species.  We didn't have a lot of time, but we did take the 7 mile drive.The first wildlife we spotted were the swans.There were also loons.We saved this turtle that was crossing the road.A deer didn't seem to be bothered much by us.From Seney we headed west of Manistique to the Palms Book State Park.At this state park the Kitch-iti-kipi spring is located.  It is the largest spring in the state.  You can click on the interpretive signs below to read more about this amazing natural spring.To see the spring, there is a raft tethered by a cable.  The sides of the pool are very steep with spring water bubbling up from the bottom at a rate of 10,000 gallons per minute.[...]

Mosquito Loop Hike -- Pictured Rocks national Lakeshore -- Post 2

2011-12-15T03:38:39.676-08:00

I am getting ready for the Cranberry Festival show this weekend so I am going to double up on the quantity of pictures posted. I'll have other pictures when I get back, so I have to catch up a bit now.  To continue with the photos taken during the hike last weekend, we left Mosquito Falls and walked through the woods down a gently sloping hill for around a mile and a half to Mosquito Beach.Here are a couple of shots showing where Mosquito River  flows into Lake Superior.When you reach Lake Superior, there is a sandy beach to the west and a rocky beach to the east.  Here is the area to the west.  We had lunch while sitting on the log.  Notice the straight driftwood log that someone inserted into a hole in the big sitting log.  I think it looks kind of like a giraffe's neck and head.Much of the rock lining and up on the beach is Jacobesville Sandstone.The leaves are just starting to turn, but some trees are ahead of the others.Half way across the rocky section of beach there is a point that allowsyou to look back to the west, as well as to the east.  Here is a shot looking west.There were quite a few ducks in the area taking advantage of the sandy beach.  These ducks were staying clear of the kayakers in the area.From the rocky point, here is a shot taken on the calm day looking east to what I call the Fred Flintstone cave.  The second photo below was taken a couple of weeks ago on the windy day.  Notice how Lake Superior changes her personality.Here are two more shots showing the whole rocky beach.  One was taken last Sunday and the other a couple of weeks ago.  Notice how the storm surge moves the lake bed up the rocks around 20 or 30 feet.More fall colors....We left the Mosquito Beach area and headed back the main trail towards the parking lot.  This trail section is 1.9 miles long.Helen left and went back to Marquette.  On the way home, Diana and I drove through the Kingston Lake campground.  I liked the colors in this lagoon.We also stopped at the log slide.While there, a fishing boat went by.  There are at least 9 outriggers![...]



Neutrinos Break the Speed Limit!

2011-12-15T03:38:39.677-08:00

 It's by far the hottest news in physics and astronomy right now: neutrinos were found to move faster than the speed of light!What are neutrinos and where do they come from?Neutrinos are a subatomic particles. They are essentially the building blocks of atomic particles such as protons and neutrons which are inside atoms. Neutrinos come in different types (or flavors as particle physicists call it) and are often the result of nuclear reactions or radioactive decay of an atom. They are created in stars and supernova explosions, and we can also create them here on Earth using particle accelerator labs. Neutrinos are electrically neutral which means that they don't interact with things often and can therefore travel far distances and through thick objects without ever being bothered. As an example, the sun creates so many neutrinos that every square cm of our body is being hit with 65 billion neutrinos every second! That's right every second! And we never feel anything. How do you measure the speed of neutrinos?The first task at hand is to build a device that can detect neutrinos. It's very hard to stop a neutrino, but particle physicists have figured out a way to detect there presence. I'm not going to go into the details here, so you'll just have to take my word for it. The next task is measuring their speed, and that theory is simple. Velocity, or speed in a given direction, can be calculated by taking the distance traveled and dividing by the time it took to move that distance. It's the same concept as driving a car. The distance from point A to point B, divided by the time I took to get there, gives me my average traveling speed in miles per hour. Now imagine a very long underground vacuum tube like the one particle physicists have at CERN. Neutrinos are created at point A at a given time, travel down the tube, and are detected at point B some amount of time later. We know how long the tube is, and we know the departure and arrival time of the neutrinos, so we can calculate a speed!Faster than light?Assuming that neutrinos travel at the speed of light (which is the current theory), particle physicists knew how long it should take for the neutrinos to get form point A to point B. When they looked at the timestamps given by the computers, the neutrinos actually arrived at point B ~60 nanoseconds too early! (That's 0.000000060 seconds) This implies that they traveled faster than the speed of light! (By a very [...]

Runway Report: Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2012

2011-12-14T09:05:14.036-08:00

Nonna ChicFarmer's Market Goes Couture: Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2012Spring 2012 Milan Fashion Week just ended and one of the highlights was of course, the Dolce & Gabbana Show. As you know, D&G is finito, done. And with that, naturally there was lots of editorial, buyer and press interest on what designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana would show for Spring 2012. Here's a given: We know that Dolce & Gabbana really know how to play with a theme. They pick one and run with it. They might be holding a Campari with Soda as their running...but they're running nonetheless. You MUST watch the video (Below after the photos) to get the whole effect of the show. Let's just say that only Dolce & Gabbana could create a theme that could only be referred to as "Grandma Chic" or Nonna Chic!Grandma's Here...And She's Looking for Cocktails: Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2012For Spring 2012, they showed lots of printed EVERYTHING--from bra tops, pleated dirndl skirts, rompers, swimsuits, and Ladies-Who-Lunch sheath dresses and suits. There was also lots of heavy applique lace...Plastic skirts, suits and even coats, Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2012Lace and even POM POMS, Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2012Sequin Ragazze: Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2012And of course, LOTS of sequins, in every variety--from heavy be-jeweled ones to cluttered multi-colored ones. Sequins and LOTS of them, are a HUGE Spring 2012 Trend and they were right there! Front Row and Center! The accessories were also the Stars. Take a look at the crochet, lace and plastic pumps. No really, take a look, because the FIERCEST of Fashionistas will be, no doubt, wearing them next Spring/Summer:Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2012And of course, there were the purses. I have a feeling that Domenico and Stefano sent their Design Assistants to peruse a whole lot of "vintage"/second-hand stores from New Jersey to Wisconsin--to find "inspiration" in these purses. They are so "old School" Church Lady"/Grandma, all that she's missing is her mini-bible from 1963:Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2012 Click Below for the Full Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2012 Runway Show: src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/UVzU3NvpdgM" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="360" width="640">[...]



Mosquito Loop Hike -- Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore -- Post 1

2011-12-15T03:38:39.677-08:00

The only nice and sunny day during my sister's visit was on Sunday. That worked out well since that is the day we decided to go on a hike. We drove the new H58 to the trail head, but stopped at Hurricane River first so Diana could see the new bridge over the river.  She had driven past it the day before, but didn't get a chance to stop.Then we met my friend, Helen, in Melstrand and drove to the Chapel-Mosquito trail head.  Rather than hike the entire loop, we decided to hike just the Mosquito half.Tree roots define a lot of natural stairways along the trail.There were fall colors evident everywhere.Along the left side of the trail, there was a path that I had never taken.  We walked back around 50 feet and there was the remains of an old cabin.Once we made the turn toward Mosquito falls, we followed the river.  Here is a gravel bar along the river.  Although you cannot agate hunt within the national park, gravel bars like this in other areas are candidates for agate hunting.My sister, Diana....My friend, Helen.....After around a mile and a half, we arrived at Mosquito Falls.  It is actually a series of cascading falls.[...]

Au Sable Days -- Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore -- Post 2

2011-12-15T03:38:39.677-08:00

Today I'll post more of the photos taken by my sister, Diana, at the Au Sable Days celebration.  First is one more shot showing a section of ship wreck remains, along with a modern freighter shown on the horizon.There are two ways to get to Au Sable Lighthouse from the Hurricane River.  You can walk down the old road or down the beach.  As you approach by beach, here is the view you first see of the lighthouse.  The lighthouse was opened on August 19, 1874.  The structure is 105 feet tall, with the light beam at 97 feet above the level of Lake Superior.  The original 3rd order Fresno lens was found and returned to the lighthouse.  When the lighthouse was in service, there were 3 keeper families including one head keeper and two assistants.Here is a shot of the shore below the boat house, showing Jill standing up on the cribbing.More light house pictures....Staff in the National Park, with the help of the National Parks of Lake Superior Foundation, the lighthouse keeper's house has been restored to what it would have looked like 100 years ago. In this next picture you can see one of the first recliners ever sold on the market.Now isn't this a beautiful and ornate wood burning stove!I love the detail in this Victorian era couch.  Then as part of the celebration, groups of 15 at a time were allowed to walk up the lighthouse tower.Here is a shot Diana took of the Fresno lens.Although it was a cloudy day, the view from the top of the tower was still spectacular![...]



The Speed of Light

2011-12-15T03:38:39.677-08:00


One of the first things you learn in physics or astronomy 101 is that the speed of light is a constant. We call it by the letter "c", and it's equal to 299,792,458 meters/second or 670,616,629 mph. According to the theory of relativity, nothing can travel faster than the speed of light. Why? It's not something Einstein made up, it comes from the theory of physics. Light has properties of both particles and waves. It tends to travel like a wave (similar to a sound wave), but interacts like a particle (like two objects bumping into each other). The crucial piece to all of this is that light has no weight. It can interact with objects, and it has energy, but no weight. So what does this have to do with speed? Physics says that as you move faster, your mass (how "heavy" you are in a sense) increases. Now I don't mean speeding up from 0 to 60mph in a car, I mean traveling very close to the speed of light. The closer you get to c, the "heavier" you get. If a person were to travel at the speed of light, their mass would be infinity. This is why people, or other massive objects, can't travel at light speed. But since light waves/particles have no mass, they can travel at the speed of light no problem! Experiments show us that light has no mass, and travels a given speed "c". Therefore, any object with zero mass can travel at a maximum speed of c. And since objects can not have negative mass, there is no physical way for anything to travel faster than c. Or is there?.... Tune in later this week to learn about objects called neutrinos that may somehow have the ability to travel faster than the speed of light!

Hrithik Roshan Agneepath postponed

2011-12-18T20:48:41.948-08:00

(image)

Agneepath starring Hrithik Roshan and Sanjay Dutt is pushed to January 26 for Republic Day instead of earlier schedule date January 13. Though reasons of the postponement are yet to be known, this news is hurting the fans of Hrithik. Karan Johar the producer of the film confirmed the postponement news on a social networking site.

Agneepath is the remake of Amitabh Bachchan starrer 1990 super hit Agneepath. Hrithik is playing the role of Amitabh while Sanjay Dutt is playing the role of Danny Denzongpa, the antagonist in the latest version. There is no place for the character played by Mithun Chakraborthy in this remake. Rishi Kapoor is seen in an important role in this mass entertainer.

Karan Malhotra, a former associate of Karan Johar is directing this film. Ajay-Atul is scoring music and Ravi K Chandra is the cinematographer.



‘Rascals’ Sanjay, Ajay spill beans about bikini shopper David!

Mumbai: How can the affair be not eventful, when the house is full of ‘rascals’? At the music launch of David Dhawan’s new comedy caper ‘Rascals’, lead duo Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgn amused all by revealing that portly director David Dhawan was caught buying bikinis in Bangkok where the team was shooting for the flick.


Sanjay and Ajay with a wicked grin said, "Once David went missing from the sets and we looked for him everywhere. After sometime we discovered that he went bikini shopping for the actresses."

But the big hearted Dhawan took it sportingly and as a matter of fact had a bigger secret to reveal about his actor and close pal Sanjay Dutt who he lovingly calls Sanju.

David revealed that during the initial years of his career when he began directing Sanjay`s films, Sanjay would keep rejecting his heroine and would zero upon the fourth or the fifth one. Well, but what was Sanjay`s criteria of finalising his heroine?

To that Dhawan remained tight lipped lest he face the ire of fiery Dutt. Is that so David?



This Pappu, Prateik Babbar, can dance

2011-12-18T20:48:41.948-08:00

Prateik Babbar

Bollywood’s shy boy Prateik Babbar is gearing up to follow in Shahid Kapoor’s footsteps quite literally.

Last week when Prateik was shooting some patchwork scenes for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s My Friend Pinto, he was required to perform a slight jig on some contemporary music and according to eyewitnesses, his dancing skills were no less a revelation than his acting.

A unit member who was present at the shoot says, “Dancing’s never been his style; Prateik is known as a serious actor who has given stellar performances in all his films so far. It was an eye-opener to watch him burn the dance floor. I dare say he matched up to the levels of Shahid and Hrithik.”

The praises coming his way seem to be doing wonders for the shy boy.

“I used to enjoy dancing but I had no confidence. Dancing in social events would make me nervous and I am usually scared of attention. But this year I want to overcome all my inhibitions. I want to blow kisses to the crowds like other actors,” smiles Prateik.

Now that shouldn’t take long.




The Dark Lord of Bollywood: Sanjay Dutt

2011-12-18T20:48:41.949-08:00

Ever since the launch of the Agneepath trailer, Sanjay Dutt’s bald and mean look as Kancha Cheena has been in talks not only in B-town, but also had the film traders prophecying that this role might turn out to be another great milestone in the actor’s career. Sanju is very happy about the chance he got offered by producer Karan Johar and writer-director Karan Malhotra. “I was spellbound by the way Karan (Malhotra) conceived his Kancha Cheena and happy that I was getting a chance to show people what I was capable of as an actor,” he beams, adding that at first he was wondering “how I could play someone so chillingly evil”. Well, he obviously could, and his co-star Hrithik Roshan is sure that Sanju’s Kancha Cheena will be as unforgettable a movie villain as Amrish Puri’s Mogambo (Mr India). A statement which makes Sanju smile: “Mogambo and Sholay’s Gabbar Singh are my all-time favourite bad men,” he assures. At the trailer launch he had named “Gabbar” Amjad Khan as his favourite villain actor. Sanju also underlines Karan Johar’s statement that this Agneepath will not be a remake but rather a tribute to Mukul S Anand’s Agneepath (1990). It will be “more earthy, raw and grounded,” he says. Some of the old characters like Mithun Chakraborty’s role were dropped from the story while new ones like Rishi Kapoor’s Rauf Lala were included. This new Agneepath will be a new interpretation of the Vijay-Kancha story, not a copy of the old one. That’s also why Sanju paints another Kancha Cheena portrait than the suave Danny Denzongpa in 1990, and the most obvious difference is Sanju’s clean-shaven head. “We’d earlier thought of going in for prosthetics but when we reached Diu it was so hot that the make-up started to melt. That was a problem because it took three hours to put it on and two hours to take it off. So, I decided to go bald. And when I looked into the mirror after my session with the barber, I got a shock because I’d never had a mundan (tonsure) even as a child,” he says and adds with a laugh that his twins Iqra and Shah[...]



Bodyguard's success doesn't bother Shahrukh Khan

Salman Khan’s Bodyguard has emerged as the top grosser in the history of Bollywood, if its first week collections are taken into account. Now, it’s that time of the year again, when a big budget SRK movie is all set to hit the theatres. However, the Box-Office record of Bodyguard doesn’t bother the actor-producer King Khan.

On being asked whether Ra.One will break Bodyguard’s record or if he's actually looking at it, SRK quickly said, “I never compete with any films. It’s just not about money, but there are 4-5 films which have done great business. When it comes to the Box-Office results, I will be happy even if my film reaches that number. However, I don’t sit and think about one particular movie.”

SRK has indulged in many promotional activities for the much anticipated Ra.One. The King Khan has now launched a custom built movie channel on the world’s leading online video platform Youtube.




Salman not a part of Rajinikanth's biopic!

2011-12-18T20:48:41.949-08:00

A lot has been written and spoken about Salman Khan paying a tribute to Rajinikanth in a film based on latter’s biopic. But, the producer Atul Agnihotri rubbishes off all the rumours pertaining to this topic and reveals that the film was never planned to be made in Hindi. He also clears the air about Rajini’s family getting miffed with the idea and a supposed apology rendered to them.

Elaborating on the same, Atul says, “First of all, Salman Khan was never a part of the film. The moment the author (who has rights of the biopic) approached me with the idea of translating it into a movie, we decided for a Tamil release.”

He goes on to add, “Secondly, we are looking for a Southern actor, who will play Rajinikanth in the film. So, the question about Salman playing the lead role doesn’t arise.”

On being probed about whether Rajinikanth’s family was irked about the fact, he informs, “No, in fact, I had spoken to his daughter Soundarya over the phone and informed about the big step of transforming the book into a Tamil film. So again, we left no space for them to get angry or something.”

“Moreover, the man who had the rights of the film had approached us with a reference of one of our cinematographers. So, we had nothing to worry about,” he concludes.

2011-12-18T20:48:41.949-08:00

SHAREANDDISCUSS0Vijay Will the actor remake the film in Tamil?The buzz in the industry is that actor Vijay is eyeing the Tamil remake rights of Dookudu, starring Mahesh Babu and Samantha in the lead. The film, which released this weekend, has been declared a hit on the opening day, and is doing good business in Tamil as well. However, a source says, Vijays calendar is busy till next year. Hes working on Nanban and Velayudham. He will start work with A R Murugadoss soon and with Gautham Menon next year. Its highly unlikely that Vijay will want too remake Dookudu. Interestingly, Vjay had earlier remade Pokkiri, another Mahesh Babu film, and the Tamil version was a roaring success.[...]



Pataudi's death: Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor postpone wedding

2011-12-18T20:48:41.950-08:00

After the demise of cricket legend Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor have postponed their wedding which was scheduled to take place early next year.

Earlier in interviews, Saif had said he was waiting for the completion and release of his ambitious movie Agent Vinod after which he would definitely make an official announcement about his wedding date.

But last week when Pataudi was admitted in a Delhi Hospital, the couple decided to postpone the wedding ahead.

Unfortunately on Thursday, he passed away and now for the next one year they will not be celebrating any occasion.

Therefore, the marriage can only happen by the end of next year or in 2013.

Saif and his family had started the wedding preparations and selected the venue too. The wedding was to take place in Bhopal at Pataudi's palace in mid February.

Kissing in films is like action sequence: Ranbir Kapoor

2011-12-18T20:48:41.950-08:00

New Delhi: He has shot a quite a few kissing scenes already in his movies and actor Ranbir Kapoor says that filming a lip lock is mechanical, just like an action sequence. The actor has locked lips with a number of his leading ladies, including Deepika Padukone in 'Bachna Ae Haseeno', Priyanka Chopra in 'Anjaana Anjaani', American actress Sarah Thompson in 'Raajneeti' and Nargis Fakhri in his upcoming film 'Rockstar'. "I do love stories most of the time. Naturally kissingscenes do come up. I don't say 'daalo' (put in) kissing scenes. Moreover, it's too awkward to kiss a girl in front of a hundred people on the sets in front of a camera and lights. It's too mechanical. Ranbir Kapoor says that filming a lip lock is mechanical, just like an action sequence. "For me, a kissing scene is just like an action sequence. Normally, I finish off the kissing scene in a single take," Ranbir told India TV. When asked whether he would go for a love marriage or arranged, the actor, who earlier dated Deepika Padukone, said, "I will prefer a love marriage, and I will arrange my parents to agree to it." Ranbir also slammed reports linking him to his co-stars. "I have remained single for some time now. I am a 28-year-old man. I also want to take girls out to dinner, but I spent most of my time on the sets. Now if I take my heroines to dinner, the media splashes it saying I am having an affair. When I don't shoot, I stay at home." (Follow IBNLive.com on Facebook Facebook, on Twitter, on YouTube, and on Google+ for updates that you can share with your friends.)[...]

Au Sable Days -- Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore -- Post 1

2011-12-15T03:38:39.677-08:00

This past Saturday staff at the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore held Au Sable Days at the lighthouse. I had to work the museum, so my sister, Diana, and friend, Jill, went to the event. At my request, Diana took pictures for this blog. One of the things Di and I do when we are together is to take photographs. She is more than willing and able to help take pictures, especially when I had to stay behind.  Thanks, Di, for the help!First is a shot she took while driving into Grand Marais the other night. Those of you who have driven M77 during fall colors know this curve, located around 12 miles south of town.Although it was not supposed to be windy, Lake Superior was kicking up her heels as Diana and Jill walked down the beach to check out the shipwrecks.The sandstone in our area comes from two main eras of time.  Pictured below is my favorite -- Jacobsville sandstone.  It is around a billion years old, which is twice as old as most of the more plain colored sandstone on our beach.  The cliffs at Au Sable Point are made up mostly of Jacobsville sandstone.  Broken and beach-shaped pieces lie all over the place.Because of the sandstone shoals that jot out a mile from shore, the waves and ice of Lake Superior push large boulders across the rock to the beach.The shipwrecks lie between the Hurricane River campground and Au Sable Point.  Primarily there are pieces from two ships.  The "bones" of the Sitka and Gale Staples are mingled.  The two craft were much alike -- both were double decked wooden bulk freighters.  Each had two masts and were 272 and 277 feet in length, built in 1887 and 1888.  The Sitka stranded on October 4, 1904, in heavy fog and high winds.  Downbound and loaded with iron ore, the ship ran aground, filled with water and was abandoned in heavy seas.  Lifesavers from Grand Ma[...]



Runway Report: Versace Spring/Summer 2012

2011-12-14T09:05:14.037-08:00

Grommets, Studs, Seashell Motifs...It's Versace 1992 all over again...And I LOVE IT!Versace Spring 2012Last week, Donatella Versace showed her latest Spring 2012 Collection for the House of Versace in the gorgeous garden at the Via Gesù show space. The collection was very "Retro Versace". Like I had seen it before somewhere...It's All About 1992: Versace Couture 1992 above on Naomi, Stephanie and Yasmeen--and on Lady GagaI had. The Versace Spring 2012 Collection had many motifs and style elements from that much-Lady Gaga loved Versace Couture 1992 time period (she's been spotted wearing A LOT from those collections lately). The grommets, the silver and gold studs, the heavily cluttered sequins, the seashell prints and motifs...Seashell Retro: Versace Spring/Summer 1992Donatella went back to the Versace Archives (as well she should, maybe inspired by Miss Gaga) and really referenced those years in particular for this collection. And what a surprise, they looked "fresh and new", especially to those "kids" who were probably 3 when those collections came out! But I remember darlings--I could never forget Naomi Campbell, Stephanie Seymour, Karen Mulder and Yasmeen Ghauri in those seashell printed swimsuits and those leather and gold studded gowns!!!Versace Spring 2012But back to the present: Versace Spring 2012 showed lots of light "candy sorbet" colors--the light blues, the lemon yellows, the aqua-greens. Lots of luscious draped and shirred silk jersey and silk chiffon added to the "prettiness". Versace Spring 2012And yes, those 1992'esque black gold studded skirts and tops and Seashell-motif sequined applique. Donatella also played with some asymmetry, especially with chiffon "overlay" that would "half" cover a simple and elegant sheath dress or a skirt.Versace Spring 2012Gowns were seductive, sexy and oh-so-Versace Red Carpet[...]

Flight Attendant Love: "Pan Am" Homage--My First Style Muses & my "Connection": UPDATED!

2011-12-14T09:05:14.037-08:00

Pan Am Fab!Ready to Board: ABC's "Pan Am" television series castYou might have noticed by now (from all those commercials and ads) that a new television series, called "Pan Am" is debuting tonight on ABC. Well, being a person who:A) Loves flyingB) Was barely 2 months old when I flew my first of many Pan Am flightsC) And who LOVES those Old-School Flight Attendant Uniforms (those Pan Am stewardess of the late 70's/early 80's where my first "Style Muses")you know I am excited to watch!The series stars Christina Ricci (above), Kelly Garner, Michael Mosley, Mike Vogel, Karine Vanasse, and Margot Robbie. It focuses around the pilots and flight attendants (then called stewardesses) who worked for that iconic airline, Pan Am during 1963.A Little History:Pan Am was founded in 1927 by Juan Terry Trippe as a US-Cuba mail service. And by 1950, when it changed its name to Pan American World Airways, it began the first concept of "economy class" (until then, it was all First Class) and was operating routes all over the world.In 1958, it brought in the beginning of the "jet age" with its Boeing 707 (above) and the first transatlantic jet service New York to Paris. Of course, this also began the era of the Glamorous and very Fabulous Pan Am Stewardesses. As the new ABC series showed, they lived the life!Back in the day, it was a much sought after job: The chic uniform, white gloves and pill box hat; the traveling around the world--one day Paris, the next London, the next Beirut! And not to mention, a potential escapade with a traveling diplomat or who-knows-who. They were the "Supermodels" of that era. Little girls wanted to be them and certain little boys who would later be inspired by them (Me!!).Coffee and Cocktails: Pan Am First Class "lounge", Boeing 7[...]

Nick Verreos Attends Macy's Passport Presents GLAMORAMA "ARTrageous"

2011-12-14T09:05:14.038-08:00

FASHIONrageous at Macy's GLAMORAMA LA 2011:Nick Verreos, Macy's Passport Presents GLAMORAMA 2011 Red Carpet, Orpheum Theater Los AngelesThis past Friday, I was invited (as well as my NIKOLAKI partner, David Paul) to attend Macy's Passport Presents GLAMORAMA 2011. Macy's Glamorama is an AMAZING event that combines runway fashion, entertainment, music, and all the while raising money for the fight against HIV/AIDS. They do a four city tour, which includes Minneapolis, Chicago, San Francisco and LA.For the past 29 years, more than $29 million--yes, MILLION--has been raised for outstanding and worthwhile organizations such as AIDS Project Los Angeles and Project Angel Food in Los Angeles and many others in the other cities. Side Note: I remember actually going to one of the very FIRST Macy's Passport shows in San Francisco back when I lived in the Bay Area. I think my Mommie took me (please don't do the math!).Macy's Glamorama LA 2011 was held at the historic Orpheum Theater in Downtown LA, and the Theme for this year was "ARTrageous". I knew this would be a fun night when the first person I ran into as I get out of my car is... Ice Queens: Nick Verreos and Johnny WeirOlympic Figure Skater Johnny Weir--looking much more fabulous than I (Thanks Johnny!!) in a Chris Benz purple knit sweater-jacket and iridescent leggings and some SERIOUS wedge bootie pumps! Now, you might know how much I am a fan of Figure Skating, and especially the Costumes. Last year, I also did some "Fashion Commentating" for Universal Sports during the Vancouver Olympics (with Johnny in fact, but he was in the Vancouver studios while I was in LA). Needless to say, it was wonderful finally meeting him. My partner David was al[...]



UARS has landed!

You're safe! UARS landed around midnight EST. The map above shows the path the satellite mostly likely took before it hit the ground early this morning.  NASA is still unsure about exactly where it hit, but speculates it was somewhere in the ocean along the green path above since no one reported seeing the crash.

Grand Marais Sunset from the Breakwater

2011-12-15T03:38:39.678-08:00

My sister, Diana, arrived in Grand Marais last night. For the eleventh year in a row we are getting together in September. This year we are going to stay in Grand Marais for the long weekend, but make some day trips to seek adventure and nature photos. Last night we walked out onto the breakwater to catch sunset. The clouds did not allow a great amount of color, except right on the horizon.  Thanks again to the telephoto lens on my camera for allowing me to capture the splendor. I took lots of shots of the color and could not decide which to select for the blog posting, so I narrowed it down to a few.[...]

Runway Report: D&G Spring 2012: Final Show and Final Collection!

2011-12-14T09:05:14.039-08:00

Ciao D&G!D&G Spring 2012Days ago, during Milan Fashion Week, Designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana showed their latest Spring 2012 offering for the "lower line" D&G. They also announced that this would be the last season for D&G . According to the designers, D&G will now be merged with it's main signature line Dolce & Gabbana. Designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, waiving "Ciao" to D&GIt seems a bit odd since from what industry experts say, it is a cash cow for the company. Many buyers were heard saying that in fact, they buy little of the signature line (or at least not consistently) but ALWAYS order EVERY season something from D&G. But the statement Domenico and Stefano released said that the move was in order to give "even more strength and energy to our collections".D&G Spring 2012This final collection was "Scarf happy". In continuing with the same scarf-print motif of their recent menswear Collection, the clothing was an explosion of The Foulard. It was very Versace meets Hermes meets Lily Pulitzer and so retro 1994 in its over-the-top in-your-face don't-look-for-solids here vibe. Frankly I don't see why Hermes doesn't do a Runway Presentation for their Ready-to-Wear shows just like this! I thought it was great! And so ON TREND since it's ALL ABOUT bold, colorful prints come next Spring/Summer.D&G Spring 2012There were mini dresses, bandeau tops, blouses, pajama[...]



Runway Report: Gucci Spring 2012--Photos + Full Runway Video!

2011-12-14T09:05:14.040-08:00

New Color Blocking, 20's Flapper Dresses, Beading Galore and Lots of Chic Luxe Clothes...Gucci Spring 2012Wow, Designer Frida Giannini has done it again for the House of Gucci. From the first look on the runway--modeled by the gorgeous Joan Smalls, it was "I'll take That, That, That, oh and That...." Or at least if I was a wife--or girlfriend of a very rich Euro--that's what I would be saying. Gucci is celebrating its 90th Anniversary in Florence and as Style.com editor Nicole Phelps put it: "...the evening clothes in particular will ensure that Gucci's 91st year, like so many before it, is a success". For Spring 2012, it was about Art Deco motifs, architectural shapes, color-blocked designs and loose off-the-body drop waisted dresses.Gucci Spring 2012Great tailored jackets with dangling gold chain closures, as well as Resort-y harem pants. I can just see Victoria Beckham disembarking from her British Airways First Class transatlantic flight in one of those ensembles. Sunglasses and all...Gucci Spring 2012No floor-length evening gowns (Frida saves those for her Gucci Premiere Couture Atelier), but there were lots of loose tunic 20's style cocktail dresses, perfect for the girl who doesn't want to go the "Herve Leger tight" route and also so right on Trend. They also had some great "Open" backs (another Spring 2012 Trend).Gucci Spring 2012: The final paillette and bugle beaded "Flapper Dresses" we[...]



Project Runway Season 9 Recaps: Episode 9--Bears, Sheepdogs and Woodstock Hippies!

2011-12-14T09:05:14.040-08:00

A Very Hair-y Bear-y Sheepdog-y Project RunwayLast night, we had another episode of Project Runway Season 9. As always, there are several things I need to get off my HAIRY Chest:First, What Does A Musical Revival of "Hair"...Bad Brady Bunch Hippie Halloween Costumes..."Massive" Men...And Gay Bears...Have In Common? According to last night's episode, A LOT--The Challenge was to create a look and "image" for The Sheepdogs, an up-and-coming band from Saskatoon Saskatchewan (say that three times!). They beat out 15 other bands to win Rolling Stone's "Choose The Cover" contest. They were the first unsigned band to do so, in fact. Oh, and they are all MEN! And the designers were not happy--to design, create, and fit, men's clothes, that is. The results were worthy of many many MANY Michael Kors one-liner zingers! In fact, so many, that this week provided enough Kors-isms to last through an ENTIRE season! The Sheepdogs told the designers that they liked a 70's Boho/Hippie-but-2011-Hippie Vibe. The designers took that too far. The clothes were cartoony and costumey, for 98% of them. Madonna British-accented Olivier who is a specialist in Menswear did not fare well.Speaking of Olivier...this episode stood out for his insensitive and almost body-dysmorphic remarks against anyone who wasn't a size 2. He called his client, the lead singer Ewan Currie "MASSIVE" (he's not!). An[...]
