The WLC (World Literary Cafe) gave me the oh-so-fun opportunity to portray one of my characters in an interview that was published on their blog this morning. How fun it was to slip into the skin of my top girl, Rena Hilst! Check out the dish here: http://www.worldliterarycafe.com/content/character-rena-hilst-joins-us-moonglow-charlie-romo
Sorrow & Beauty – Patricia van der Vliet & Josephine Skriver – Benny Horne, Vogue Russia – June 2012May 26, 2012
Ugh, this spread just isn’t fair! I love this atmosphere for Patricia van der Vliet & Josephine Skriver (Patti & Jo !) so much! I just admire Patricia so much. For me, her look changes from various angles. From the front, perhaps she’s meek. From a worm’s eye view, whimsical. From profile, mysterious. I just love her presence!
And I LOVE this song! It reminds me of a sub-plot in my MOONGLOW: FOREVER HOLD. Something tells me I’ll be hearing Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own” a lot as I write that sequel. >:p

My best friend turned 25 on April 20th. We celebrated at Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen here in town and had an amazing time! For a chain restaurant, the food is simply sublime.
He loved the custom card I made him. When we were younger, we played a lot of Star Wars: Jedi Knight 2, and ultimately JK3. We were always the portly Rodians. We called ourselves The Garbage Men. :p Those are the beasts you see on the front of the card. The red thing between them represents my little brother’s character back then — he was always a Red Reborn. Good times. :)
When we played that game, he couldn’t decide what to name his particular character. I said the little green head on a plump body like that looked like a hairy kiwi. So he called himself “MrHairyKiwis” and it stuck! To this day, that’s still his nickname. Rarely do we call him “Nathan” — always “Kiwis” or another term of endearment, “Rhino.” :D
First appetizer — Frog Legs, (two pictured, two were already consumed). These were delicious! The breading was light, crispy and well seasoned. The frog was tender and silky, as to be expected. I’ve always loved frog legs. Many say frog tastes like chicken but I think they taste more like testicles, if I had to compare them to anything.
Second appetizer of Baked Oyster Duo, three Oysters Pappadeaux (crabmeat, spinach & hollandaise) and three Oysters Baton Rouge (romano & parmesan cheeses). I loved them both equally.
My entrée! Pan broiled with dirty rice. They were excellent! They weren’t exactly tiny, either. I took one home.
My brother’s entrée: Grilled Caribbean Lobster Tail. He said it was really good, if not a bit on the salty side.
I had a side of spaghetti squash. Yum!
Our best friend reacting to some vulgarity my brother shot his way. :D
We had some of these — Baton Bellinis! Flor de Cana 7 year aged rum, Hornitos Plata tequila, peach, fresh lemon & lime, finished with Saracco Moscato d’Asti. Best cocktail of the day.
And some of these — The Patrón Perfect. Patrón Silver tequila & Patrón Citrónge Orange liqueur with fresh lemon & lime. Quite tasty.
This is the Captain Morgan rum on the rocks my brother had beside this MONOLITH of a brownie that we annihilated. That thing wasn’t just fudgey and chocolatey and sweet and caramel-y and delicious, it was a TAUNT to a sucrose coma. Finished off with some vanilla ice cream, it was a flawless finish.
My beloved Jameson Irish Whiskey on the rocks and I. I’m a complete sucker for Jameson!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY! KANPAI! ~(\=^-^)=/ ~So happy you can see my Speak Now bracelets!
Gotta love modern technology. Anyone who couldn’t attend Coachella 2012 in person (like me!) was able to watch the entire festival live streamed on YouTube. Uploads of every moment have steadily poured in so you can catch it all by simply searching for it on YouTube or subscribing to Coachella’s official channel here.
I saw some AMAZING musicians. These were my ultimate favourites and why:
St. Vincent – I was inspired
Bon Iver – I cried
Mazzy Star – I remembered (nostalgia)
(waiting for an upload of her full set!)
Explosions In the Sky – I was mesmerized
YOUTUBE YANKED THE VID SO CHECK OUT THIS LIVE PERF FROM BELGIAM:
Radiohead – I re-lived (more nostalgia)
I really could feel the energy of the crowd and the musicians through the screen. However, there’s nothing better than being there LIVE! All those emotions are magnified to overwhelming extents. I hope to be there within the next couple of years
St. Vincent was my main discovery. Annie Erin Clark’s approach to music floored me and filled me with inspiration. I love her voice, her energy and the raw nature of her lyrical delivery. A lot of her set reminded me of a poetry reading at an underground hot spot. She’s also outlandishly beautiful and brave. The crowd surfing at Coachella rocked!
I love festivals like Coachella, where music and unity are celebrated. ♥
