100 abandoned houses

houses

this site was featured heavily on the blogosphere a while back, but i keep returning to it because some of the houses are so awesome and i’m sad that they are wasting away! check out 100 abandoned houses. there is also a story at the NY Times about the pros & cons of people buying beautiful old houses in shitty locations. one woman bought an amazing old mansion in the middle of one of the most dangerous parts of NYC:

if you have an old house / apartment & you’re in the process of restoring it, be sure to check out Door Sixteen – Anna & her husband bought an 1890s Victorian rowhouse in Newburgh, NY a few years back (after moving out of Brooklyn) and they’ve slowly been restoring it since.  she has some pretty rad before & afters in her flickr (the bathroom renovations are awesome)

save the date

after that anne bancroft post, i searched for ages trying to find this cute save the date video i saw yonks ago – inspired by The Graduate, emulating the end bus scene.

i love the way the dude throws his head back, just like hoffman did.

straight men, look away

chuck

look, i’m enough of a girl to admit that i enjoy gossip girl as much as the next girl (girl). and all chicks dig chuck bass.  he looks slightly gay in some of them, but so be it. check out the slideshow at GQ.
