Carousel — Week Ending 13th March 2009

Happy Friday the 13th! (Again!)

8 Things To Remember For SXSWi 2009 from LifeStudent! Timely, no?

Nubs writes about making the most of your wardrobe: cost per wear.

Endings from Nightmare Brunette.

One of my philosophy professors lectured wildly about love once, yelling: “When you’re in love with someone, that person is the lighthouse of your universe.” (I scrawled it inside Science and Poetry in pencil—lighthouse of your universe—as if I would ever forget that phrase.) He was a delightful caricature of his position. I could swear he literally tore his hair out while howling at us. He went on, “Nothing means as much without that person.”
One of the men in the class repeated, incredulous, half-laughing “so you’re saying you can’t enjoy, like, a vacation, without someone if you’re really in love with them?”
“Of course not.” the professor replied. “Not completely. You recognize beauty, but beauty means less if they don’t witness it with you. Beauty is less. You see something sublime and your first thought is that they should be there with you. It’s not as good without them. They illuminate. They make everything more.”

Leif (Layfe!), infamous Viking, linked me to this the other day — a Sufjan Stevens hip-hop mash-up. It’s good, too.

Happiness 101 from Guiding Lotus.

It’s all raw week at Cafe VegNews!

Tim Brownson, my favourite life coach (why yes, he is!) wrote Imagine This. & you should read it.

Telephones are sexy (NSFW).

Ask Nicole is still a great blog. Viz:

Q: What is your take on open relationships/polyamory?

A: If you like processing, then polyamory is for you. I estimate five to ten hours of processing for every one hour you get having sex with someone else.

Ditto on 1000 Awesome Things. Take, for example, #812 When you’re drowning and then a dolphin comes to your rescue, & #814 Cheesy theme songs from 80’s sitcoms. Neil makes me laugh so hard, I love him!

Don’t worry.

I freaking LOVE Winona & her advanced fashion quiz.

Rachael Gibson writes about Amanda Lepore perfume. Aaaaamazing!

Print tells the truth.

Haute Macabre features Rick Owens yumminess, a fab reader-submitted what I wore feature, & mega fetishy heel-less platforms from Nina Ricci.

You are the only one.

From JAK & JIL: Kanye West’s new girlfriend has some good stuff in her closet. (Jazzi tried on that dress the other day. It is hot.) I want these boots. & a crystal-covered cap.

Okay… I’m going to splash around in the madness of SXSWi now! Have an amazing weekend!
