We Own The Sky - M83

Past and Present Austinites - Regarding Leslie.

Posted By Lorelei LeFae on Oct 14, 2009 at 12:25AM

A vigil was held this evening outside the Brackenridge hospital and a member of staff did address the crowd with an update: That he is "conscious and in fair condition", according to University Medical Center Brackenridge spokeswoman Adrienne Leyva. I had heard earlier today that he had suffered a stroke and was in a vegetative state and if he did live he would have to be admitted to some sort of living facility. So sad! The man has been such a character and fixture on 6th Street. I don't remember too many times I've gone downtown and not seen the man strutting about. :)

The heading is a quote from Darla, from the movie Dazed and Confused. :love:

The Day Before...

Posted By Lorelei LeFae on Oct 5, 2009 at 10:59PM

This is a fantastic show that I had no idea about because until last week I did not have The Sundance Channel. The Day Before is a 5 part documentary that goes behind the scenes at fashion house the day before their runway show. Each episode follows a different designer—the stellar lineup includes Sonia Rykiel, Proenza Schouler’s Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, Karl Lagerfeld for Fendi, and Jean Paul Gaultier—as they prepare their creations for the catwalk. I have only seen the Proenza Schouler episode so far (which was amazing - those boys are so cute I want to carry them around in my pocket.) but I have Fendi on my DVR.

Check your listings. It's a must see for anyone who loves the runway.

ACL 2009. Friday. The Walkmen and Kings of Leon.

Posted By Lorelei LeFae on Oct 2, 2009 at 10:45PM

I didn't get a chance to see every one of these bands, but given the super human ability to be in two places at once, I would have seen the following today. Will speak on the shows I did see after the videos...

School of Seven Bells - Half Asleep

My future lover; Hamilton Leithauser with his Walkmen - Wake up

The Walkmen - Four Provinces

Dr. Dog - Heart it Races

K'NAAN - Dreamer

Choice was between Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Kings of Leon. Impossible. I went with Kings...

Cold Desert


I only really watched The Walkmen and Kings of Leon today. I caught a treat or two from a few others on my way from one to the other but it was a fantastic day. The weather was perfect. So far I adore ACL 2009. Tomorrow was sold out, so I'll miss And You Will Know Us by Our Trail of Dead, The Decembersits and Ghostland Observatory, but bygones. BBQ at my aunt's house tomorrow so I will hopefully be distracted enough that I will not despair too deeply that I am not at the ACL.

Check out the entire soundtrack!

Have you seen Fierce People?

Posted By Lorelei LeFae on Sep 26, 2009 at 11:29PM

So good! Charming at first but then it became very dark and twisted. The cast was excellent. Kristen Stewart played the only role she knows, an awkward teenage princess. Then we have Charlie Bartlett and the always enchanting Diane Lane. Donald Sutherland rounds it out as King and Johnny Storm as the posh grandson with wicked ways. The story was captivating and the scenery was lovely. Enjoy it if you can.

Kirk Cameron just topped Tommy's crazy.

Well, I supposed he topped him a long time ago, I just wasn't paying any attention to him. But TMZ showed bits of this video tonite:

Diablo Cody takes on Sweet Valley High

Posted By Lorelei LeFae on Sep 23, 2009 at 10:18AM



Diablo Cody's heading back to high school, signing on to write and produce an adaptation of the "Sweet Valley High" book series for Universal. Mason Novick, Adam Siegel and Marc Platt are also producing.


I think there is no better person to flip this series to film, but I imagine there will be plenty opf people who wish their beloved Wakefield twins be left alone.  What are your thoughts?




Rediscover.. Kasabian.

Posted By Lorelei LeFae on Sep 16, 2009 at 11:10PM

Kasabian is probably on of my favorite groups. I went on a minor road trip with my sister and all three albums served as our soundtrack. Their sound is pretty unique and everytime I turn them on, I end up listening to the entire set.

Here are some of my favorites:



Rachel Alexandra the Great!

I know most of you could care less about horse racing, but I can not contain my excitment over this amazing horse. She is very much looking like our horse of the year. This filly can not be beat! :cheer:

Her work on the 31st...
