homer every day

i’m sure you’ve all seen this video. what i didn’t know was that the simpsons parodied it (what an honour!)

i laughed at the youtube credits at the end. if i ever had to make something like this, i would put the happiest music in the background. seriously, no one’s life should have a sad piano soundtrack.

head first

it took me a while to warm up to goldfrapp. i think i had my fall in love moment when listening to happiness at full blast on that leafy drive from the southern suburbs over the mountain to hout bay (if you know cape town, you’ll know).

i love this portrait, so delightfully eccentric. and her name is just perfect – UNA.

i just squealed my way through this entire set over at flickr. i thought it might be the perfect way to start your weekend off on the good foot. happy friday!

pin-up

am i becoming precitable? apologies but i can be a bit of a tart for vintage – especially if it’s bordering on kitsch. most of these pin-ups certainly fit the profile, and a couple of them are even rather classy. nothing like some fifties babes to start your weekend off on the good foot, though.
