A Treat for October

With not a lot to talk about in my life and this being October, I figured I would give you all a treat in the form of one of my favorites, Ryan Reynolds (click here for the full photo.) I've written about my obsession with Ryan before and I'm glad to hear that he is currently filming the romantic comedy Definitely, Maybe. Sounds like this film might capitalize on his killer comic timing and matinee idol looks - thank God.

It's Evolution, Baby

One of the best parts of working on creating new work is the constant struggle to push one's self further artistically. I am constantly examining and trying to formulate my next series of drawings. Which is why I am happy to report, that I believe I have come up with my next series of works. While it is too early to see if my experimentation or concept will pan out, I will keep you posted to their progress and the challenges that arise while producing them. Keep your fingers crossed for me dear readers, this could get messy.

The Nature of the Beast

Interesting news bit I read yesterday that's sure to cause a stir in some religious radicals. The Oslo Natural History Museum is currently mounting an exhibition entitled "Against Nature" that documents the observation of homosexual behavior in 1,500 different species of animals from giraffes to beetles. Geir Soeli, the project leader of the exhibition is quoted as saying "The sexual urge is strong in all animals... It's a part of life, it's fun to have sex," as to the reasons for homosexuality or bisexuality among animals.

This exhibition should travel, hopefully the Museum of Natural History here will see its worth and bring it to New York. Sounds like a important exhibition that holds the future of the nature vs. nurture argument. Say what you want about the exhibition, but I think this statement from the exhibition says it all, "We may have opinions on a lot of things, but one thing is clear -- homosexuality is found throughout the animal kingdom, it is not against nature."

Turn the Volume Up

Finally the judges got it right, awarding Jeffrey Sebelia the win on the third season of Project Runway. He truly deserves the title - his work was innovative and showed beautifully on the runway. His biggest competition was definitely Uli (whose work was beautiful and showed amazingly as well) and she deserved to be the runner-up. The victory for either or them was a step in the right direction for the show's search for the 'next great American designer.' I look forward to see what Jeffrey does next. Congratulations, you deserve the world, man... enjoy the win.

Let the Spirits Move Me

So I started to think about what I would like to be for Halloween. While I should have started planning weeks ago, life interrupted and now I'm down to two weeks to plan and execute a costume. And the problem is I'm stuck as to what creature of the night to possess for All Hallows Eve (my favorite holiday.) So, I'm looking to you dear readers for some suggestions. Be creative. The only thing I suggest staying away from is anything too obvious - vampire, doctor, pirate or Paris Hilton. You get the idea.

Green Isn't a Good Shade for Her

Sadly, I have lost a huge amount of respect for Laura Bennett last night on Project Runway. Her bitching about the amount of craftsmanship Jeffrey placed in his collection is ridiculous. It smells of her own insecurities as a designer and the threat of his collection competing against her own. Shame on Michael for jumping on the bandwagon, feeding into this madness. (I know he's the fan favorite, but his collection is the weakest by far - let's see if he can charm the judges on the final runway.)

There is a huge difference in what a designer would send down the runway after two days, as opposed to two months - everyone's work looks more polished. Shame on you for feeling the need to accuse another designer of breaking the rules - especially after seeing what happened to Keith earlier in the season. I cannot imagine why any designer would risk disqualification that close to Fashion Week.

I understand it makes for good television and I'm sure the producers were salivating over this juicy tidbit but if they eliminate Jeffrey from the final competition, I will have lost all respect for the show. Don't let me down Bravo.

Mad Skills

So with just two episodes left and a sneak peak at their collections, my money is on Jeffrey Sebelia to win the third season of Project Runway. And it seems like Laura's suffering a bit of envy next episode due to his collection, which always makes for great television. I like the look and vision of his collection. I know he might not be the most popular on the show, but to quote the opening, the boy's got "mad skills." If you don't believe me, take a look at his women's and men's collections for this fall/winter season on his website.

The judges would be silly not to award him the win - but then again, everyone seems so hung up on Michael - so hopefully they can look past the person designing the clothes and just focus on the clothes themselves. It will be an interesting battle to the finish.

How the Strong Fall

So sadly J.P. time on Survivor has come to an end. Our pro volleyball player got served a surprise attack for his ways around camp. Of course, Survivor always works best when the one sent packing is completely blindsided. It is too soon to tell if his departure will have any effect on the tribe, but I have a feeling the Raro women will use this shift in power to their advantage.

I'm always amazed how what appears to be the most physical of a game, really ultimately has nothing to do with brawn and athleticism, but more with relationships. Many strong powerful men and women have fallen due to this very fact - J.P. just is the latest casualty.

Nice Guys Finish Last

Once again, trying to be the nice guy is coming back to bite me in the ass. Life pretty much sucks at this moment.

Attack of the Clones

So I've never been one to think that I look like any celebrities out there, so when I came across this program I thought I would give it a whirl. Enjoy the results and if you happen to take the test yourself, would love to know who you look most like dear readers.
