Collection: Valentino Haute Couture FW 2015-16

by Larkspur Vintage

Collection: Valentino CoutureAs much as my days of all black dress, dark heavy eye makeup and ultra gothy vibes have passed me by, I still get pangs of excitement deep in my chest whenever I see anything styled remotely Gothic and Medieval. So it’s no surprise these images in Vogue Italia made me stop dead in my tracks. Valentino always, always brings out some of the most stunning garments that seem more works of art than actual articles of clothing, but it no less makes me wish I was the type of person who had a place to wear gowns of such luxury.  The starting point for this particular collection was Rome, which feels like the most suitable place to adorn intricately embroidered gowns and heavy metallic accessories with a stoic disposition. I wish I could transport myself into these images so I could be a part of this gothy, sullen world. When in Rome, right?!

The most amazing Boston Missed Connection ever

by adamg

I met you in the rain on the last day of 1972 begins:

I met you in the rain on the last day of 1972, the same day I resolved to kill myself.

One week prior, at the behest of Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger, I'd flown four B-52 sorties over Hanoi. I dropped forty-eight bombs. How many homes I destroyed, how many lives I ended, I'll never know. But in the eyes of my superiors, I had served my country honorably, and I was thusly discharged with such distinction.

And so on the morning of that New Year's Eve, I found myself in a barren studio apartment on Beacon and Hereford with a fifth of Tennessee rye and the pang of shame permeating the recesses of my soul. When the bottle was empty, I made for the door and vowed, upon returning, that I would retrieve the Smith & Wesson Model 15 from the closet and give myself the discharge I deserved.

I walked for hours. I looped around the Fenway before snaking back past Symphony Hall and up to Trinity Church. Then I roamed through the Common, scaled the hill with its golden dome, and meandered into that charming labyrinth divided by Hanover Street. By the time I reached the waterfront, a charcoal sky had opened and a drizzle became a shower. That shower soon gave way to a deluge. While the other pedestrians darted for awnings and lobbies, I trudged into the rain. I suppose I thought, or rather hoped, that it might wash away the patina of guilt that had coagulated around my heart. It didn't, of course, so I started back to the apartment.

And then I saw you.

H/t eeka.

Enh. We’re under-impressed. Not for lack of trying on her part, though. In fact, the very seriousness with which she seems to be approaching this look is actively working against it. Maybe if she’d lighten up a little (both in mood and in her styling choices because that is some SERIOUS hair) she could’ve sold this to us. Granted, the bust is so tight on her that it may be impossible for her to smile at all right now. Honey, lose the Cup 0’Boobs look. At the very least, do it so you can breathe correctly.

The more we look at this dress the less we like it. The criss-cross effect on the bodice is nice, but the pale color of the fabric (which grates on our nerves for being kind of wishy-washy when this design needed a richer color) renders it almost invisible. Additionally, the embroidery looks unfinished and unresolved as a design. It looks like someone was just testing out the various stitching functions on a new sewing machine. In short its a weirdly bland dress styled in a too-serious manner and worn by someone who can barely breathe in it. As the kids (in 2010) say: FAIL.

Amy Poehler And Nick Kroll Broke Up

by Michael K



I guess this week’s theme is, “Hos You Forgot Were Dating Until It Was Announced That They’re No Longer Dating.”

Amy Poehler and Nick Kroll (the billionaire’s son from Kroll Show and the dude from The League who didn’t lie about almost dying in 9/11) were smashing their fuck parts together for 2 years, but they’re not anymore. A source tells UsWeekly that Amy and the butcher and bearded Chris Kattan just couldn’t make it work, because she’s so busy and he’s so busy and they couldn’t find the time to be busy together.

“Unfortunately, they just couldn’t make the relationship work with their schedules,” says one insider close to the Parks and Recreation actress, 44, and the Kroll Show star, 37.

Upcoming projects constantly came between Kroll and the mom of two (she shares Archie, 6, and Abel, 5, with ex-husband Will Arnett). “They really tried, but it just wasn’t realistic anymore,” adds the source. “They were spending more time apart than together.”

Whenever Hollywood types break up, some source usually burps out some generic crap about how they had to dump their relationship into the gutter because they were just never ever together. Er, I thought that not seeing each other’s faces for long periods of time was one of the keys to a long-lasting happy relationship. Doesn’t absence makes the heart and genitals grow fonder? You know, after not seeing each other for weeks, they’d go into a room together, get naked, hump for a while, light up a joint, say a total of 16 words about what they’ve been up to and get dressed before going back to their oh-so-fucking busy schedules. That seems like the perfect relationship to me! I’m guessing that the real reason they broke up is because the Hammaconda is on the loose now and Amy wants a huge piece of that. Now that’s a good reason to dump a trick.

White Town’s “Your Woman,” Explained

by Alexandra Molotkow

Ummmm…well, that’s a toughie. When I wrote it, I was trying to write a pop song that had more than one perspective. Although it’s written in the first person the character behind that viewpoint isn’t necessarily what the casual listener would expect. I’d been reading a lot of Wilhelm Reich and Andrea Dworkin and they both influenced the lyrics in different ways. Yes, I’m a geek.

So, these are *some* of the things it’s about:
Being a member of an orthodox Trotskyist / Marxist movement (as I was for three years in the 80s).
Being a straight guy in love with a lesbian (ditto).
Being a gay guy in love with a straight man (not tried this one yet).
Being a straight girl in love with a lying, two-timing, fake-ass Marxist.
The hypocrisy that results when love and lust get mixed up with highbrow ideals :-)

The last time I checked I was male. But as for gender….that’s another kettle of fish :-)

First Moose Born in Fifteen Years at Northwest Trek

by Andrew Bleiman


1_image001She is tough and resilient and as beautiful as an integral piece of the Northwest landscape. So it’s not surprising that members of the public picked "Willow" as the name for Northwest Trek Wildlife Park’s 7-week-old moose calf.



4_11928739_10153245902819862_5537067840285774548_oPhoto Credits: Oona Copperhill/Northwest Trek Wildlife Park

Willow is the first moose born at the 725-acre wildlife park near Eatonville, Washington, in 15 years, and she arrived as a very special delivery on July 17 – Northwest Trek’s 40th birthday.

Staff members nominated three Northwest-themed names for the calf: Willow, Lily and Aspen. The public chose Willow through voting in an online survey over the last month.

Willow’s mother, Connie, was named in honor of Northwest Trek co-founder Connie Hellyer. Her father, Ellis, was named in memory of Dave Ellis, a longtime deputy director of the wildlife park.

One other adult moose, Nancy, also wanders the 435-acre Free-Roaming Area at Northwest Trek. The moose are often visible to members of the public as visitors ride trams for a narrated tour of the forests and meadows.

Anyone visiting Northwest Trek is up for a possible peek at the moose family, as well as up-close views of other animals in the Free-Roaming Area, which is home to American bison, Roosevelt elk, deer, and bighorn sheep. And, of course, there also are black and grizzly bears, gray wolves, foxes, Canada lynx, bobcats, coyotes, a cougar, beavers, a river otter, fishers, badgers, skunks, raccoons, owls and other animals in natural exhibits along paved pathways in the main area of the wildlife park.

In the Free-Roaming Area, Willow continues to thrive, Northwest Trek Deputy Director Alan Varsik said, “She is still nursing and also sampling browse, such as willow and maple cuttings, and she’s starting to show a little more independence,” he said. “Connie is taking the occasional time out, where she leaves Willow for a brief period of time. Under the watchful eye of Connie, Willow has also had positive encounters with our other moose.”

The moose (alces alces) is the largest extant species in the deer family. Moose are distinguished by the palmate antlers of the males. They typically inhabit boreal and mixed deciduous forests of the Northern Hemisphere in temperate to subarctic climates. Unlike most other deer species, moose prefer to be solitary and do not form herds.

Although generally slow-moving and sedentary, moose can become aggressive and move surprisingly quickly if angered or startled. Their mating season in the autumn can lead to spectacular fights between rivaling males.

The moose is a herbivore and is capable of consuming many types of plant or fruit. Much of a moose’s energy is derived from terrestrial vegetation, mainly consisting of forbs and other non-grasses, and fresh shoots from trees such as willow and birch.

Moose lack upper front teeth, but they have eight sharp incisors on the lower jaw. They also have a tough tongue, lips and gums, which aid in the eating of woody vegetation. A moose’s upper lip is also very sensitive, to help distinguish between fresh shoots and harder twigs. Their lip is also prehensile, for grasping their food.

Moose are excellent swimmers and are known to wade in search of aquatic plants. Moose are known to dive underwater, as well, to reach plants on lake bottoms. Their complex snout allows such a feat; it is equipped with fatty pads and muscles that close the nostrils when exposed to water pressure.

Although moose rarely gather in groups, there may be several in close proximity during the mating season (September and October). Females have an eight-month gestation period, usually bearing one calf. Newborn moose have fur with a reddish hue, which is a contrast to the brown appearance of an adult. The young will stay with the mother until just before the next young are born. The life span of an average moose is about 15-25 years.

Since the 1990s, moose populations have declined dramatically in much of temperate North America, although they remain stable in arctic and subarctic regions. The exact cause of die-off is not determined, but appears to be a combination of factors, including a change in habitat and heat stress caused by global warming, poaching, the reintroduction of wolves, and the northward migration of warmer-weather parasites to which moose have not developed a natural defense, such as liver flukes, brain worms, and winter tick infestations. The moose is currently classified as “Least Concern” on the IUCN Red List.

Lindsay Lohan Went On A Naked Rampage After A Wedding In Italy

by Michael K

"The source says she...played Brandy and Monica’s “The Boy Is Mine” over and over again."


Lindsay Lohan, the Blanche DuBois of washed-up messes (because she always depends on the kindness of rich Arab men), is still living the high life in Europe and people are still inviting her to things. LiLo was a guest at the wedding of Justin Etzin (the ambassador of tourism for the Seychelles) and model Lana Zakocela in Florence, and she immediately brought the foolery by showing up in a white dress. LiLo told everyone the dress once belonged to Elizabeth Taylor. I think LiLo’s getting her Taylors confused. I think she meant that she stole the dress from a Lord & Taylor.

Page Six says that during the ceremony LiLo behaved like the polite swan we all know her to be by painting her nails and looking at her phone. The source says that LiLo checked out of the reception early and when she got back to her villa, she stripped down to her naked body and ran around while saying that someone drugged her drink.

The wedding was a 4-day long party and at one event, which had an Eyes Wide Shut theme, LiLo was the DJ. The source says she yelled at some trick for taking a picture of her, spoke in a British accent and played Brandy and Monica’sThe Boy Is Mine” over and over again. LiLo also claimed someone stole her jewelry. (SPOILER ALERT: It was Lindsay. Lindsay even steals her own jewelry.)

A rep for Justin Etzin claims that all of the above did not happen.

Most weddings are boring, but I’d go to any wedding that LiLo was a guest at. Who cares about the bouquet toss and listening to the best man slobber out some cheesy speech. I’d much rather watch LiLo run around naked while screaming in a British accent about how someone stole her necklace as hos in masks fucked around her (that’s what they mean by an “Eyes Wide Shut theme” right?) and “The Boy Is Mine” played on a loop.

P.S. – Playing “The Boy Is Mine” ten times in a row at someone else’s wedding is one of the funniest things LiLo has ever done. We already knew this, but now we really know to never accuse LiLo of having shame.

Citizen complaint of the day: I don't care if it's called Sweet-N-Nasty

by adamg

See it larger (if you have smelling salts handy).

A shocked citizen was shocked to see that the window display for Sweet-N-Nasty on Mass. Ave. in the Back Bay, which specializes in X-rated cakes and chocolates, was filled with the sorts of items one might expect to find in the window of a store that specializes in X-rated cakes and chocolates.

"Totally offensive," was all the outraged citizen could muster before hitting submit on his or her 311 app and, no doubt, swooning to the ground.

It's A Boy! Baby Giraffe Born At Auckland Zoo

by Andrew Bleiman


11893970_10153106151701984_8230317602288156455_oEarly in the morning on August 21, a baby Rothschild’s Giraffe was born at New Zealand’s Auckland Zoo!

The male calf was born to mother Kiraka and father Zabulu.  This is the second calf for Kiraka and the first male calf to be born at the zoo since 2010.

Photo Credit:  Auckland Zoo

For now, Kiraka and her calf are behind the scenes bonding, but the staff expects them to join the herd in the exhibit soon.

Baby Giraffes are born while the mother is standing, and fall six feet to the ground.  The fall breaks the umbilical cord and induces the newborn to take its first breath.  Mom immediately begins licking her baby, and the calf attempts to stand within the first hour of birth.  Shortly afterward, the calf will begin to nurse.  These instincts are important to a calf's survival in the wild.  If the calf can’t get up and move right away, it could fall prey to hungry hyenas or lions.

Once believed to be plentiful across Africa, Giraffes are now known to be in serious decline.  Of the nine subspecies of Giraffes, two are listed as Endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature – including the Rothschild’s Giraffe.  Threats come from loss and fragmentation of habitat.  Giraffes have already become extinct in seven African countries.

Your Friend Mayonnaise

by Mary Kelly

don't make an incorrect salad.

Correct Salads for All Occasions
General Foods Corporation

We haven’t featured an old cookbook in a while so I was glad I found this little gem in my library travels. I think the idea that a salad could be “correct” or “not correct” was a bit interesting. I found out from the chef inside that hostesses need to match the proper salad to the proper occasion. (By the way, the chef doesn’t seem to have a name, but he looks like Snidely Whiplash.) Unlike some of our other cookbooks, these are illustrated with drawings rather than photographs and the dishes don’t look nearly as awful as black and white photos might be.

Mayonnaise for everyone!

Endangered Wallaby Joeys Emerge at Taronga Zoo

by Andrew Bleiman

Two tiny Brush-tailed Rock-Wallaby joeys have emerged from their mother's pouches at Taronga Zoo, continuing its successful breeding program for the endangered species.

A female joey has started peeking out from mother Mica’s pouch in the Zoo’s Platypus Pools exhibit, delighting keepers and keen-eyed visitors.

“She’s still quite shy, but we’re starting to see her little face more and more. Mica likes to find a nice spot to rest in the sun and the joey will often pop its head out to look around,” said Keeper, Tony Britt-Lewis.

At five months of age, the joey will likely spend another month inside the pouch, before venturing outside to explore its surroundings.

The joey is one of two Brush-tailed Rock-Wallabies to emerge in the past week. Another of the Zoo’s breeding group, Ruby, is also carrying a joey.

Once abundant and widespread across the rocky country of southeastern Australia, Brush-tailed Rock-Wallabies (Petrogale penicillata) are now listed as an endangered species in New South Wales. They are classified as “Near Threatened” on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. The Brush-tailed Rock-Wallaby population has declined by up to 97% in the last 130 years.

Brush-tailed Rock-Wallabies have called Australia home for millennia. They are found nowhere else on earth and are a unique part of Australia’s natural heritage. “Brushies” were once common in all of Eastern Australia, and they numbered over half a million individuals. In the 19th century, Brushies were hunted by humans for their fur (now outlawed), but today they are still killed by predators, such as: foxes, feral dogs, and cats. They also face competition from introduced species such as goats and of course, a loss of habitat due to farming, weed invasion and the generally expanding human population. They’re vulnerable to introduced diseases and suffer from a lower overall genetic health, due to the increasing isolation of colonies.

Taronga Zoo is working with the Office of Environment and Heritage on a coordinated program to help the recovery of the species.

Jamaica Plain May Get a New Burrito Shop

by Jacqueline Cain

Chilacates looks to bring Mexican food to Armory Street.

A new Mexican restaurant is seeking a food license to open up shop at 224 Armory St. in Jamaica Plain. Chilacates, with manager Socrates Abreu, has a hearing with the Boston licensing board on Thursday.

Chilacates is seeking a 10-seat counter at the shop that most recently housed the Dominican Armory Restaurant. Predominantly, Chilacates would serve walk-up and take-out customers. The establishment is seeking permission for a beverage cooler inside, without beer or wine. If approved, Chilacates could be open from 8 a.m. - 10 p.m. daily.

A fledgling Instagram profile shows Chilacates has been in the works for nearly a year, with two posts from 44 weeks ago. The posts indicate Chilacates, which is the name of a pepper found extensively in Jalisco, Mexico, will focus on burritos. The company has registered the domain but hasn't created a website yet.

Last week, interior designer Ivory & Bone shared a photo of antique tin, pictured, which apparently will be used to build Chilacates' counter.

Assault and battery with a dangerous iced coffee reported at South Station

by adamg


Craig Wright reports on an incident on the inbound platform on the Red Line at South Station around 9 a.m.:

Woman hit older woman with iced coffee, then dumped on her head because she was "intentionally blocking her."

I guess from boarding the train? Who knows! To the older woman's credit - she just pretty much laughed it off.

The coffee dumper then walked away, he said.
