I missed this bit in the New York Times the other day about how chipped nail polish is totally fashionable for everyone now. News, you guys!
This girl is very fashion forward.
“Before, when nail polish was chipped you absolutely had to run and get it fixed,” said Ji Baek, the owner of Rescue Beauty Lounge and a manicure doyenne who has noticed the Olsens and Lindsay Lohan with less-than-impeccable polish.
UM. Because the Olsen Twins are not constantly on everyone’s worst dressed list (aren’t they ALWAYS being compared to hobos or something??) and Lindsay Lohan is not famous for being a total mess in general. You win at bad examples, Nail Lady. She adds:
Chipping is cool, but chipping in a schleppy way when you don’t have a $5,000 handbag is not as cool.
Fashion = what the poor kids / black kids / otherwise marginalized kids are wearing + a $5,000 handbag.
I win fashion math forever.
Gross, New York Times.
Actors act and actors sniff jackets.
Cameras that look like guns. Shoot your art in the FACE! (That’s a slogan I came up with just now! They should really use it.)
It’s so pretty, though, right?? They all are. Look at them. Someone get me one even though it should NEVER EVER be used in public. For your health.

I am kicking myself so hard for not thinking of this first. Do you think I can jump on the bandwagon while it’s still hot (I win at metaphors)? Wants For Sale.
This is a painting of a rent check for $1056.07 and an actual check for $1056.07 which someone paid for the painting of the check.
The painters paint pictures of things they want and then sell the painting for the price of the actual item. They have done this (SUCCESSFULLY) with everything from a plate of buffalo wings to a Wii. I hate them.
Completely unrelated: I like Wii’s. Also, I’m pretty good at drawing.
This is very genius.
As long as we’re all tripping out to video editing, let’s remember this bit of Mormon creepy brilliance, shall we?
