WOE IS ME I just found out that despite owning the complete boxed set of The Pink Panther with Shag's fantastic art, Revenge of the Pink Panther is not included because it was licensed by a different studio. :C

ALACK, ALACK.



...Also, I think I need a Shag pink panther icon, it would be faboo.

D: Oh well, that dream out the window I suppose.


Anyway, so here's a tip. Don't spend a day looking at Shag's art, and tiki art, and Pink Panther stuff, and spend the most of the next day missing Hawaii, and then go dress shopping for a formal. It's... dangerous.

I mean, I love the dress. I liked it when I saw it on the wall of the store because it's structured, and most dresses now are that lame under-the-bust stupid design that makes every girl look like they're pregnant. Yeah, so, I was really into these bright jewel tones more than anything (like I said... too much Shag art) but nothing really fit well. So I have this awesome fitted dress, but... I don't know. It's about >this far< from being trashy. I mean just imagine the bright gold heels and some Tiffany & Co. jewelry on there and woo baby it's like you walked out of Talladega Nights. So you have to play it... carefully. And the problem is, I can't quite place the style. It's not quite forties, not quite fifties, not quite sixties... Maybe it's more thirties but it's too bright for that and I can't exactly waltz in there with a big sun-hat and breakfast-at-tiffany's shades. The dress is already too look-at-me for me. I mean, I like the dress, I just hope it blends in more than I'm suspecting it will.

Meh, anyway, Laura and I bought the closest thing we could find to a black fascinator that didn't have a rose on it (we were looking for feathers) but the closest thing we could find was a headband with this reconstructed-black-glittery-flower thing on it.

This is essentially the dress: dis one


And I mean, if this were really more formal than "formal" (it's not a black-tie event, or even prom-like; probably more like homecoming), I would put on my black fed or just a hat in no time flat. But, eh, I guess you take what you can get.

OH, and Laura said wearing my Hawaii flower hairclip would be too trashy. :C That makes me sad because I really love them and I'm really feeling that right now. (Too much Shag.) Oh well.

So... yeah, I'm kind of afraid of tomorrow. I generally hate attention and it's just one of those dresses. I dunno, I kinda feel like I should be a dumb platinum blonde when I step into it... Does that even make sense?




Okay, it's kind of sad, I'm looking for a pic of that dress and finding all this bright Indian and gypsy style stuff... It's gorgeous. And dangerous. If I ever end up as a crazy cat lady I'll be wearing shit like this all the time, you know it and I know it. Fuck.

Loooooooong post tonight. I have a million tabs to clean up, haha.

OMG ALFRED MOLINA IS IN THE NEXT PINK PANTHER MOVIE. I am so frigging excited. I got worked up about losing my checkbook (boo) and my Shag art Pink Panther checks (double-boo) and spent the day looking at Shag's stuff and Pink Panther stuff, trying to find those cute versions of his. Unfortunately, they were just for the 40th anniversary in 2004... So it looks like it will take some actual hunting to find them.

So how awesome is Shag? Well, I really want this for my computer.

And this is from an interview of him on Modculture.com: "Are there any celebrity "Shag" fans you are willing to name? Do you get invites to celebrity parties?
"There are celebrity collectors, but almost any fairly established artist in L.A. will have them, as the celebrities are the ones with lots of disposable income! One of my biggest collectors is Whoopi Goldberg. Ben Stiller, Seth Green, Rob Zombie, and Nancy Sinatra also own paintings. I don't feel really comfortable around famous people and usually decline invitations to "hang" with the stars.""

YEAH, THAT'S RIGHT, FUCK YOU BEN STILLER HATERS. AND FUCKIN' SETH GREEN. These guys are infinitely more awesome than before.

Also: things you worry about typing into search engines--"shag" is one of them (also, afraid to type in shag.com directly). See also: "shag pink panther". Trust me, I know the horrors Google can wreak. (Like Cthulhu from the depths of the internet. His screams are your own.)

Next up: check out these remixed movie posters. They're awesomely 60's. (And no, it wasn't just Last Crusade that caught my eye.)


Star Wars, as told by someone who hasn't seen it. HILARIOUS. May I also note this is on my "sinning by not having watched it" list, but only as a sci-fi and pop culture classic. There are a lot of others just as equivalent, say maybe Pink Panther? And I do mean the classics. This is nowhere near the magnitude of not watching Indiana Jones, I daresay. E];D

A Public Service Announcement for College-Aged Guys. Yeah, I went more specific than her, whatever, I think it's hilarious. AND EXTREMELY ACCURATE. However, I will admit that cleanliness > organizedness. I look like the messiest person ever because it is somehow all organized in my head. However, dirty is gross. THAT BEING SAID, if you're trying to impress someone, and you have advance notice, go a little out of your way to make an improvement... I don't leave my shit around in the living room when we have Phi Rho meetings, do I? No, I don't. (And my room is a mess because it's not really a living space, just a storage/sleeping space, and I'm not taking anyone in there anyway so who am I trying to impress? That's right, nobody.)

The best story I've ever read about Hades and Persephone. The writer has an amzingly clever way with words.

Obamicon yourself! I feel like this is already overdone, but, hey, I'm sure it will come in handy in a few months...

How to rape your brain without dropping acid. Honestly, I'm gonna try that first one. Similar things happen to me when I'm very tired, very quiet (pretty standard for me) and trying to fall asleep but just staring at the back of my eyelids. However, some of the other ones seem like they would just hurt... Like the fake-arm-hammer thing. Uh, thanks, my brain still hurts thinking about the Boonshoft's Laser Rollercoaster Show. (Ow.)

Still going through some other links. I'm a lazy-ass.

Frig I love tikis.
