Seeing pictures of Emmanuelle Alt make our hearts skip a beat. 

We at The Monochromator camp have been not visible lately at this joint because the past couple of weeks we were quite busy nursing hangovers.

White + Bright

I'm still looking around for the perfect place to live/work/run the business and I want it to look like this. I think a warehouse would be perfect.

Taken By Cars

(Time Magazine wrote about how French people, in general, are big on luxury in terms of designer fashion, cosmetics and jewelry, while the Germans would rather mostly spend their fortune on expensive cars.)
So anyhoo, that Tarantino movie where Kurt Russell plays a psycho driver-stuntman was dope. I’ve also watched a lot of Night Rider when I was a kid. Other than these, I’m really not a car aficionado. It’s just a form of transpo, you see. Plus, cars look the same to me. ‘Xcept that these beauties are so articulate in design, I noticed me staring at them details of these ‘60s Ferrari and Lamborghini far longer than normal. Click at the pics for a bigger view. Nice, eh?

Got these photos from Mirage. And you know, I kept on saying that Mirage Magazine is from London. But I looked it up online and apparently, it’s a German read that’s just written in English. Kinda odd how I never found it from the actual magazine, or maybe I should browse thru it more than 2x he, he.

I think it was Madonna - from some magazine article I've read a long time ago - who said that the trick is to keep evolving.

Proudrace, a trio of brilliant 20somethings who made pop the slogan shirts in this country, does fine at it -> evolving. (My hunch, actually, is that a good understanding of their niche had played well for them). Here’s to share what they've got nowadays. These are my faves from their new stuff:

A Life Less Ordinary

I have a number of girl crushes on Hollywood celebs: Rose McGowan in Tarantino/Rodriguez flicks; Kate Bosworth in Preen or Balenciaga and in that movie "21"; Angelina Jolie; Charlize Theron as Aeon Flux; Winona Ryder in "Mermaids" and "Reality Bites". But most of all, I'm big on Milla Jovovich. (I do like to, uhh, c-h-a-n-n-e-l, ha, ha, her and stuff like that, but not really. It's just that when not so good things happen, I sort of pretend that I'm Alice in Resident Evil). Fact is, her movie costumes are so rockin', so kickazz...

Above (Left): In Fifth Element, it's those boots and tights and belt and that thing that somewhat looks like a rubber harness or suit -- whatever it's called, it looks great. Above (Right): In Resident Evil Apocalypse, it's that sheer sando over a bright red bra. The pants look cool ripped at one side, and then the strapped-on weapons, too, yep.

This Leeloo suit is so chic and her Ultraviolet costume is just so friggin amazing down to the jacket and them gloves. Tisk, tisk.

Here in Resident Evil 1, can I just shout: Leather Jacket!!!!

Too stoked for words on her (Resident Evil Extinction) ensemble.

Whoo-hooooooo!!!! ('Tis another one off Ultraviolet.)
