Tipi of the day

This is the ultimate clash in tastes and style. Somehow they pull it off, and I'm actually tempted to buy a Barbie® Doll. Gosh, that Registered symbol makes it look like “Barbier” instead of “Barbie.” I suppose it is Barbier. After all, that would be considered better, and this particular Barbie® Doll modeled after Tipi Hedren in Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds is far better than any blonde bombshell Barbie I’ve ever seen.
Every dress should be acompanied by ravenous birds that want to kill you.
For due credit, I found it at Boing Boing.
But here’s the collector site.

Smarmy Clothes

Less mood, more mode. I have been inspired! I found this site: SmarmyClothes.com, and you HAVE to check it out. These are the punkiest, and most colorful hand-made clothes I've ever seen. I recommend you check it out, and buy something from them. Dress with a little gumption.
See them at Myspace too.

Check out this cool hand-bleached, hand-sewn dress. Not just a great idea. It was executed with the precision of a good mortician. Drop dead gorgeous.

Give them an inch, then twist

Sheesh. Give somebody an inch, huh? I have yet to see any company not take advantage of your need for their service. You name it, they’ll take you for all you’ve got. No need for specifics here.
It’s time we let them know we will go elsewhere (when we aren’t forced by monopolies).
Give them and inch, they’ll take a mile. So from now on, give them an inch, and twist it so it hurts.
