For 3 years almost i have been so in love with the models of American Apparel.
Strictly the models, not the clothes. I would never buy a 30$ t shirt.

Dear book, this is another day in my life. A life is like a book. A book is like a box. A box has six sides. Inside and outside, so, how do you get to what's inside? How do you get what's inside, out? Once upon a time, there lived a very pretty girl, who lived in a beautiful box, and everybody loved her.
Life and death, energy and peace. If I stop today it was still worth it. Even the terrible mistakes that I made and would have unmade if I could. The pains that have burned me and scarred my soul, it was worth it, for having been allowed to walk where I've walked, which was to hell on earth, heaven on earth, back again, into, under, far in between, through it, in it, and above.
I could learn photography. That could be something to want. I could photograph children. I could have my own children. I would give them yellow roses. And if they got too loud, I would just put them some place quiet. Put them in the oven. And I would kiss them every day, and tell them you don't have to be anybody, because I would know that being somebody doesn't make you anybody anyway.
I really admire the Model Gia Carangi, mostly because she reminds me of my own mother. I found some of her excerpts from her journals very profound. The quotes from the movies were also very beautiful as well.

Labyrinth (1986), Starring David Bowie and Jennifer Conelly
You know when you have those memories of flashbacks from your childhood, but you just cant put yout finger on what your dreaming of. Well i have constantly though of the movie Labyrinth, which i recently watched after a night out on the town.
This is Movie is so amazing i gotta say with its elaborate characthers, and wonderful songs- which were all written and produced by yours truely David Bowie.
The movie was created by Jim Henson, a sort of Acid Trip version of Tim Burton. For those of you who dont know, Jim Henson was the Creator of classics such as The Muppets, and Fraggle Rock.
PLUS, Jennifer Conelly is super scrumcious in this movie, with that raven hair, and crystal blue eyes. :)
El Laberinto Del Fauno (2006)
For all you non Native speakers up in here, - Pan's Labyrinth, was an amazing spanish film that featured the most adorable little character, Ofelia, whom i look alot like now with my short curly hair. ANYWHO, Though similar to Labyrinth, El Laberinto Del Fauno, takes place in midst of the Spanish revolution, where Ofelia learns she is of super natural royality.
Pan's Labyrinth, is also a lot more realistic then the 80's version, and its spanish dialougue deemed much more poetic. Not to mention it was shown in Cannes Film Fesival, and it is very rare for Spanish film to cross over to the American Mainstream. :), Viva Latinos.
Both Films, are about two young girls(Sarah and Ofelia), who became immersed into a fantasy world theyve always dreamed of, each ending in the Labyrinth. Take notice that both the protagonists in each film have one main goal in the entire movie.- which is saving their little brother. you must watch it to understand. All in all, Ive got to say both movie are wonderful and they really parlay my actual thoughts, which are fantasy. Fantasy is much more exciting than reality, wouldnt you say so.?
Walking Incognito to pick up a new Trench Coat at Pretty Girls, a brother came up to me huslin' magazines for $1. I choose the new Dec 08 Vogue and made my way to the bus. In that month's issue i came across Lakshmi Menon. This beautiful and exotic new Indian Model. I certainly think shes has that "it" quality, and not to mention did i say she was timelessly exquisite and beautiful, Google her sometime.
