OLD FLAMES

Image
If we were friends on myspace back in 2006-2009 then you should know who Rob Roy is! My old best friend and I used to be in love with Rob Roy back in the day and I thought about him today I don't know what made me think of him...oh I remember...this is really random but I was watching this comedy show that had Lil Duval on as one of the comedians and thought of Robs songs titled 'Duval' and if you're one of those people who loves southern rap (what am I talking about?!) If you just like great music in general then you'll love Robert Raimon Roy aka Rob Roy! here are some of his old songs that I used to listen to all the time! Enjoy!

Check out some of his more recent work from his up and coming self titled album 'Robert Raimon Roy' on itunes

HOTEL NOIR SEBASTIAN GUTIERREZ

Image
"Director Sebastian Gutierrez returns with a black and white trip into 1958 Los Angeles, where a private detective seeks refuge in a hotel while bad men with guns come to get him" -Film School Regects This is what I love about film everything doesnt have to be so serious all the time when there's good directing and a well written script there can be magic! Hotel Noir by Sebastian Gutierrez. I just found out about this film today and decided to share it with you guys! I hope I'm not the only one thats heard of this? The cast is great as well (Carla Gugino,Danny DeVito,Rufus Sewell,Malin Akerman,Robert Forster,Rosario Dawson,Kevin Connolly,Mandy Moore,Cameron Richardson and, Michael B. Jordan) I'm so excited to see this! Can you guys tell I'm a sucker for witty dialogue and femme fetales by now? find out more about the film here

In the bane of my existence I feel limited on the edge of insanity The seriousness of my unrequited morale Has me in its grips and as vain as I feel my soul has become It still haunts me at a constant.  How many dreams are enough?  How many fantasies can get me off  While I bounce around on my own cloud nine  Reality beats me down, murders me in cold blood  Without hesitation I don’t bat an eye  I am mourning my own creativity  I take time to breathe and I reminisce about the light in my eyes I try to remember the luminosity  The will that my soul takes for me when mentally I cannot do it alone  I will never give up the will …

BABY, HOT OR COLD...

I love this video/mini-film so much Lana del Rey does an amazing job directing in all of her videos! Is it just me or does this song sound like she took some inspiration from Johnny Cash?

THE HITCHCOCK HOUR

Image
It seems theres a couple of Hitchcock movies coming out (not by the director of course) but surrounding his work and life (whether it be exaggerated or true) Alfred Hitchcock is one of my many favorite directors but when I seen the trailer and read the interview Tippi Hendren gave for the NY Times I had no idea that Alfred might of been just as psychotic as his films portrayed. I love in the interview that Tippis' life wasnt destroyed by him
You don’t get it. He ruined my career, but he didn’t ruin my life. That time of my life was over. I still admire the man for who he was. (NY Times Interview)
Shes a strong woman! Check out the trailer below featuring the beautiful Sienna Miller! Its nice to see her in films again! I hope she does justice playing Ms. Hendren! You can watch it on HBO Saturday, October 20th at 9PM!

Hitchcock Trailer, starring Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren and Scarlett Johansson. Directed by Sacha Gervasi, Hitchcock movie opens November 23, 2012.
I'm so excited!…

BEAUTY SPRING 2013 | VIVIENNE WESTWOOD RED LABEL

Image
I love it when designers and makeup artists come together and really throw a fantasy element into these collections. Leave it up to some of my favorite designers in likes of Vivienne, Meadham Kirchhoff, Christian Dior (past seasons) to really amp it up when it comes to makeup looks! This season for VW Red Label Val Garland did the makeup for the show and I have to say that Val is a genius she's so inspiring and her artistry levels are incomprehensible. I always think to myself how does she come up with this type of stuff? For some people these might come off a bit clownish but to me this is beautiful! (hence the name of my blog beauty of the unusual) and this is pretty UNUSUAL! it reminded me a lot of Andy Warhol's work or a hybrid mix of a aging Egyptian 50's house wife on acid! P.S Not to mention the penis pins! ha!
