Dum Dum Da-Dum

My parents are finally tying the knot after being together for just over 10 years. It's so sweet and I'm so happy for them, I thought it deserved a post. They just want to do the city-hall thing and not have any celebrations, but I insisted on at least a nice dinner. They are such a strange couple but somehow it works. Heh. Anyways, here's to the first white guy being legally added to the family! Thanks mum for setting the precedent for me and my cousins! I am eternally grateful. 


It's A Paradox!

I can't wait to get my hands on the new Chanel Fall Collection Nail Polish Paradoxal!

At first, I thought this was pretty much identical to their Vendetta shade. But turns out, this is one of the most unique nail polish shades Chanel has released. The colour is difficult to describe but its a sort of grayed plum, with a red and violet shimmer. I suspect its colour to change under different lighting, as it looks almost completely different in every photograph I've seen.

Such an unusual, gorgeous colour for nails!


[Listen]: Pumped Up Kicks

I dare you to try and get this out of your head.
I was on the way home from Fremantle this afternoon, feeling quite dreary because of the weather. Then this song came on Triple J, and for a few brief minutes it was summer again. I'll be living off this song's luscious feel good vibes all winter long.

The Runaways: Opening night @ Cinema Paradiso

Los Angeles 1975, Joan Jett (KRISTEN STEWART) and Cherie Currie (DAKOTA FANNING), two teenage valley girls with punk in their blood, meet and become the heart and soul of the seminal all girl band, The Runaways.

Writer/Director Floria Sigismondi brings The Runaways to the big screen in this story of a group of extraordinary young women as they rise from rebellious Southern California kids to rock stars of the now legendary band that paved the way for future generations of girl musicians. Under the Svengali-like influence of rock impresario Kim Fowley (MICHAEL SHANNON), the group evolves into an outrageous success and a family of misfits. With its tough-chick image and raw talent, the band quickly earns a name for itself—and so do its two leads: Joan is the band’s pure rock’ n’ roll heart, while Cherie, with her Bowie-Bardot looks, is the sex kitten. [www.lunapalace.com.au]

The Opening Night event will be at the Cinema Paradiso on Thursday, July 15 @ 8pm.

I've been wondering when this would be coming to Australian shores. From the general consensus I've gathered, this movie isn't half bad. Most likely, it's going to dismissed straight away because of a certain Twilight-related actress (or two technically), but most critics I've read have only faulted story development rather then any leading performances. I'm not a huge Runaways fan by any means, but I know enough of their music to say how shockingly well Kristen Stewart channels Joan Jett, particularly her eerily similar vocals on 'I Love Playing With Fire'. So I'll admit, I'm mainly going to see how well Stewart pulls this one off, but there's still a story here that needs to be heard.
