feel like we should go in and order some fries

Meghan Rice, the manager of the casual-dining restaurant, reports its last day is June 30, after which it will forlornly sit empty until it's torn down (along with the neighboring and long vacant cineplex) to make way for a hotel and senior-citizen apartment complex.

All the stuff on the walls will be for sale, she adds.

Hello Everyone. This month is sure flying by. So that means one thing. It's time for another monthly recipe. A few months ago when my husband was doing weight watchers. I came across this recipe on Pinterest and decide to give it a try. This recipe can be made for breakfast or dinner. I made it for dinner. Which my husband wasn't a fan of this recipe. So I don't see myself making it in the feature.  Over all I liked it. Plus it was an easy meal to make. 

HAVE A GREAT THURSDAY!

Mikko, 20

“I’m wearing a Weekday coat, a Selected Homme polo knit, a bag by Onar Studios, Acne Studios pants and McQ sandals. Lately my style hass becoming more simple and classic. Instead of craziness I’m intrigued by an idea that not all clothes need to be revolutionary. I’d rather invest in good materials and play with textures.”

this is a fun little read, and i liked reading the comments!

Bjork - PostHere's something you probably shouldn't do: Listen to Vulnicura, the shatteringly sad family-breakup album that Björk released earlier this year, back-to-back with Post, the album she dropped 20 years ago tomorrow. Vulnicura is a great album, but it's not an easy one to hear. It's harsh and decentered and experimental and feverish and, again, … More »

Britney Spears Paints Topless While Listening to Mariah Carey!

KV

Artney



The beautiful Britney Spears was on Australia's Dan & Maz radio show and revealed that she paints topless while listening to Mariah Carey.

When the hosts asked her if she & Mariah's paths had crossed while doing their shows in Vegas, Britney responded no, but gushed about loving the elusive chanteuse. "I love Mariah Carey still to this day. I was painting in my art room, and I just, like, paint on the walls and do these all this kinda crazy stuff and I bought her greatest hits and her new Infinity record yesterday and I was just in there with my top off just, like, painting and doing all this artsy fartsy stuff. I love her. I love her voice."

Maybe Next Time Will Be The Last Time

by Matthew

laura and her crew just continue to crush it. the album is really great. also am i the only person that still reads fluxblog?

No Joy “Moon In My Mouth”

A very overrated aspect of music culture, particularly online music culture, is chasing after baby bands and hyping them up. It’s the music culture equivalent of the people who rush to type “FIRST!” in a comments section, and it’s more about people trying to accumulate social capital than anything else. An underrated thing is waiting for one of those baby bands to make the jump from promising or pretty good to becoming actually great. No Joy have done this with their third album More Faithful, and it’s a thrill to hear a group of musicians step up and really find their voice.

The first two No Joy LPs were good but not particularly distinctive shoegaze records. This is fairly common in the indie world – shoegaze is a very seductive aesthetic, and you can make superficially beautiful and cool-sounding music in that genre without a lot of technical skill. It’s also a great genre for shy singers, since you can get away with burying your voice under all the noise.

More Faithful is a shoegaze record too, but it’s anything but lazy and bashful. This is an album made by musicians who understand that the best music in this genre – i.e., the work of My Bloody Valentine – is all about sensuality and subtle tonal contrasts applied to strong, melodic songwriting. The record is full of gorgeous sounds and interesting textures, and even better, there’s so much depth implied by the mix that sometimes it seems as though it’s coming at you in 3-D. (I’m particularly fond of the way the apply a severe slap echo on just the word “stop” in the chorus of “Chalk Snake.”) I’ve had a promo of More Faithful for a few months and it’s been in my regular rotation all of that time, and I’m still finding new nuances to love in it after dozens of listens.

“Moon In My Mouth” is the song on More Faithful that I’ve obsessed over for months. It’s a very well-written piece of music, but feels oddly amorphous. It’s performed in an unusual time signature, and though the melodic elements seem to orbit something, it’s not clear what that something actually is. It’s disorienting, but in a very lovely way. One of the best things about “Moon In My Mouth” is though the overall sensation of it is sort of vague, its component sounds are very specific and clean. The extreme clarity of the guitar parts remind me of how Peter Buck’s guitar was recorded and mixed on R.E.M.’s Murmur. There’s something so stunning and surreal about hearing something so crystal clear at the center of an arrangement that otherwise quite atmospheric. Jasamine White-Gluz’s vocal performance is wonderful too – breathy at some points, but very crisp and emphatic in the chorus. I’m so glad she didn’t hold back in singing the song, because that her passion doesn’t compromise the intimacy of this music. It amplifies it.

Buy it from Amazon.

A Historic House with Personality

by Erin Gates
KV

this house is so obnoxious and i love it

I’ve been feeling a little less than inspired by spreads in my shelter magazines lately and even on Pinterest. Have you?  I crave some more interesting spaces with personality and a unique flair- not just “pretty” spaces.  Sometimes even those that are not my personal style can inspire creative thinking and to take some design risks.

I saw this home on Atlanta Home website and thought it was just one of those spaces.  The historic Greek Revival home, called Honeymoon, was built in 1831 and has been lovingly renovated by design showroom owner James Stanton and his partner.  There is nothing like a good ol’ grand Southern mansion….
w141001_stanton_madison_egd_307

w141001_stanton_madison_egd_344

I die over the original door knocker.

w141001_stanton_madison_egd_317

w141001_stanton_madison_egd_321

I love the blue of this entry (trim and ceilings all the same)  and the two prints on the wall….

w140930_stanton_madison_egd_006

You can see how the color changes in the light here and how the bolder color shows off the antiques and period details on the stairs.

w140930_stanton_madison_egd_043

w140930_stanton_madison_egd_003

This moody den is also cool, again with the ceilings painted the same color as the walls- something I’d only do in a room with high ceilings.

w140930_stanton_madison_egd_042

w141001_stanton_madison_egd_115

In another living space the mood is lighter, but a dramatic green sofa and modern rug. It’s not exactly my person style, but I do like the mix.

w140930_stanton_madison_egd_047

I do however, love the mix of antiques and modern decor in this home.

w141001_stanton_madison_egd_126

I just posted this wallpaper last week when discussing grisaille, and here is an example of it in the dining room.  I love the painted trim and ceiling- and that gold mirror.

w140930_stanton_madison_egd_017

This kitchen feels a little too dark for me personally. I may have done just the cabinets in the grey and something lighter up top.

w140930_stanton_madison_egd_011

More fun use of wallpaper in a powder room. Again, not something I’d pick but certainly a funky and cool application.

w141001_stanton_madison_egd_134

I do like this space- the Currey & Co. chandelier, the light blue walls and four poster bed.  This space feels pretty unique and the mix of dark brown and blue feels interesting.

w140930_stanton_madison_egd_063

w141001_stanton_madison_egd_081

I LOVE these adorable twin beds.

A pretty vignette, again a mix of dark tones and lighter blues, showcasing a fun lamp by Aerin for Visual Comfort.

w141001_stanton_madison_egd_068

The relaxing pool.

Fairuza Balk Responds To News Of "The Craft" Remake

KV

lol i love leigh janiak's facebook post



The Craft star, Fairuza Balk, took to Twitter to voice her opinion on the upcoming remake of the 1996 teen witch film. The new film will be directed by up-and-coming director, Leigh Janiak, who directed Honeymoon, which she co-wrote with Phil Graziadei. They will reunite to write the script for The Craft.


Personally I don't care for the idea of remakes. There are great scripts & ideas out there that have yet to be made!

— Fairuza Balk (@fairuza) May 14, 2015





You guys are so sweet! It doesn't surprise me much. Sony made a lot of money off the craft & obviously see it as a way to make more

— Fairuza Balk (@fairuza) May 14, 2015




Janiak posted on her Facebook, "i bind myself from doing harm to the brilliant original."

Rachel True, who played Rochelle, also supported Balk's opinion by tweeting, "@fairuza said it best... & thanks so much for all the Craft love! You guys are so passionate, it makes me smile!"

No word on the casting yet.

The original film was planned out to be PG-13, but later changed to an R rating. It touched on many dark topics, including suicide, racism and rape. According to Robin Tunney, during a recent brief panel discussion with director Andrew Fleming, Kate Winslet auditioned for the part of Sarah.

Far be it for us to tell people how to think (HAHA! As if!), but if you’re looking at these pictures and wondering how she pees or sits down, YOU ARE LOOKING AT IT WRONG.

The red carpet – especially at Cannes – is all about creating a moment, and if there’s one thing Miss Bingbing knows how to do, it’s that. This is breathtaking. Pure fantasy fashion, which is why Marchesa’s such a fantastic choice for this venue – and for her, for that matter. After all, there are only a handful of women who could make this look work as well as she does.

Lady GaGa's day of preparations for and drunken fun after the Met Gala

KV

i'm obviously not the biggest gaga fan but i think she looks really happy/healthy lately!

Lady GaGa had a Balenciaga-filled day in preparation for the Met GaLa on Monday, May 4th. It looks like she had a grand old time of it, and has finally gotten over her default hatred of other celebrities.

Going to the hotel to get dressed with Alexander Wang:










Arriving to LAX for Met GaLa:






At the Met GaLa:

















Arriving at the after party she hosted with Alexander Wang
















Apparently, GaGa was high on "cold medicine" and barely remembers the night.
I was told I took 3 Aleve PM by accident for a headache from my headpiece before the #MetBall I'm quite enjoying reliving the evening through pictures. But look at me like a champ just dozing through the night without a clue. Rallying like a seasoned fashionista 💊💊💊💃
