AAA = Attack the Block, American Horror Story, Always Sunny

i know people hate American Horror Story but i’m a sucker for anything horror related and i think it’s so brills seeing it play out in a serial format.

plus: Dylan McDermott is still hot. i used to randomly watch The Practice in high school (let that sink in a bit) and Bobby dude is still packing! Still making terrible woman choices, but still packing. plus plus: i really dig Tate’s outfits. i wanna dress like a Kurt Cobain creeper too 😦

i’m sure i’ve made my stance known on how October is just about the best month of the entire year (Halloween! Birthday! Manila Restaurant Week!) and so far this one has been kicking some serious ass. i even magically have Celebrity Ghost Stories on every night before i go to bed on the bio channel, it’s so unreal.

oh yeah, luke treadway is so funny and so hot in Attack the Block. i can’t even…

(unrelated Jason Schwartzman channeling Marty McFly for good measure)

i didn’t realize until i started putting these photos together that i’ve been eating like some kind of benevolent gastro king lately.

mushroom consomme with crispy confit chicken wing & porcini flan

to top off this wonderful birthday week, i just had a package delivered from Urban Outfitters today that I remember canceling and getting refunded for– over 2 years ago!

so essentially i got this for free.

um, thanks 2009 Sam. thanks universe. thanks October!!!

25 Jun

manila hotel is actually really charming. had a nice cup of warm milk at the lobby.

‘filipino french toast’  at ucc cafe: a tasty balance of custard-dipped pandesal topped with salty-sweet longganisa

tonkatsu at tsukiji

was very graciously gifted with a beautiful pair of simple white shoes at tretorn’s opening last week.

i’ve always wanted the perfect pair of canvas shoes. the kind i’d imagine sofia coppola would wear. unconsciously i think i even tried to model this after the shot of converse sneakers in marie antoinette:

well, vaguely.

rock lobster linguine

have become re-obsessed (not an actual word) with ‘dress me like a clown’ by margot & the nuclear so and so’s. says i’ve listened to it, oh, ONLY ABOUT 90 TIMES, but somehow i’d forgotten all about it until now.

youth knows no pain
