Building a Love Connection?

Some of the downsides of the construction boom are having massive amounts of dust, loud bangs and construction workers watching you while you're on conference calls. But sometimes, they just want to get to know you better. Like a colleague in my own office, who after having pebbles tossed "After School Special-style" at her window, discovered this message across the way....

Lost: The Musical

Not the best execution, but the polar bear/lord of the dance thing killed me.

Project Runway :: it's my Beatles

I don't generally get fanny over things these days -- except Project Runway. Last night's episode was so good I got the shakes. For fellow fans, I've included here some shots I took from the Banana Republic store near my place of work, where they display the actual winning designs. *SQUEAL!* Sometimes I just go sit by the window and talk to the designs like they are my best friends.

(Note: click photos for much larger version that allows you to get all up-close and personal with the designs.)

Daniel V. -- the silent but deadly rocker guy -- is a FORCE to be reckoned with. His love of Nick has us all wondering, "Will this be the first ProjRun romance?" Go. Daniel. His design this week, inspired by an orchid , had Tim all giddy with design-prof love. I can't say this was my favorite, but whatever, Daniel is so cute.

This is Zulema's winning "skating costume" from last week -- I just caught the shot of it last night before they replaced it with Daniel's winning creation. Must admit, it stands pretty gorgeous in the window on display. But when you get close (click and see), you notice it's not that well-put-together. Kind of like seeing Ricky Martin at the salad bar in Whole Foods. Not so hot. True story.

As each episode airs, they throw the the previous week's winning design on an ugly rack with an almost evil conviction. I imagine Heidi throwing the designs on the floor -- "This was in last week, now, it's out" -- and Banana Republic flunkies scrambling at her feet with pins in their mouths. Regardless, fun to see them all hanging together in harmony, unlike the atmosphere back at the Atlas.

Speaking of Banana Republic flunkies, here they are! Just this morning they were bowing at the feet of Daniel V.'s creation. I waved, yet they just gave me the cold stare. Whatever. I'm totally gonna go mess up the jeans area tonight.

Flying dogs...

I don't know what this is for, where it came from or what to do with it... but damn, look at the flying dogs in slo-mo....

Stay. Good boy.

Part of me wants to break the glass and free this adorable prairie dog, found at a pet store on Long Island. The other part of me wants to send the photo to Cute Overload!

NYT on the outs in Miami

Anyone else catch the story in the Times on Saturday about that new vacation hotspot -- South Beach? Yeah -- good call. Anyway, my favorite part of the expose is the nifty photo of the incognito 12-year-old in the window of the chic bookstore ... reading The Advocate (that's my inset). I bet poor Davie took a 3 hour bus ride to spend some time with the gays and catch up on the queer news -- only to be outed to the world by the f*cking NYT....

Creeping Me Out

"Omigod, you drink liquids? How do you keep so thin?"

Ape Sh*t

I'm always somewhat pleased to see leashed apes go crazy when being used as props.

Leg Up!

As you can see from the inset, the MTA wants to make sure you can find your artificial leg. Or maybe those are the breadsticks you stuffed in your coat at an Olive Garden luncheon. Regardless, creepy.
