First stop being home in Phoenix? BUFFALO EXCHANGE! I love this store. You can buy, sell, or trade clothing. They are choosy but that's why they are great! Every city should have a buffalo exchange or something just as great. It's the only way to shop (:

Treat Yourself

The best thing you can do is treat yourself weekly to something great! Maybe it's getting a manicure/pedicure, buying your favorite magazine, or getting a massage but whatever it may be - find a way to treat yourself weekly. It's good for the body and the soul and keeps you rejuvenated through each week. With everything we do in our busy (or not so busy) schedules, this tip is important to make time for. I found a school of Chinese medicine that has a practicing clinic for student's in their last years to gain experience. I started going every Tuesday 10am to get an acupuncture treatment and a massage for an hour and half. Since it was a school it was much cheaper. It's the most amazing thing I can do for myself.

You have to find something like I did, and pamper yourself <3

Book Club: The Rum Diary

If you loved Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas, it's time to pick up another great book of his... The Rum Diary. It was written in the 1960s but wasn't actually published until 1998. The story follows the rum-drunk adventures of American journalists writing for a newspaper in San Juan, Puerto Rico in the 50s. Inspired by Thompson's own experiences as a journalist in San Juan, and taken from the people he met along the way, Thompson produces another great tale.

Good thing it's an easy read, because the movie is coming out soon.. well in 2010. The book is being made into a movie directed by Bruce Robinson who also worked with Hunter S Thompson to write the script. Of course who better to star in the movie then our very favorite, Johnny Depp.

Piggy Bank Piggy Bank please get fat

So I have decided that finally finally I am going to buy a turn table, so I can finally play my collection of about 12 records (which will slowly expand). I found one: Crosley Archive Portable USB Turntable... its almost as good as my portable speakers/purse. Anyway if anyone hears of anything that is not so expensive or maybe one of my faithful music loving and vinyl playing tel aviv friends hears of anything... keep me in mind.
Also from urban you can get the Fisheye Camera Mike Perry Edition for 58. So so much fun!
So much fun stuff...
Anyway please anyone and everyone keep me in mind for an inexpensive turntable so I can finally enjoy some of my music.

6 minutes and 39 seconds

Tomorrow, Wednesday, 2009 July 22, a total eclipse of the Sun is visible from within a narrow path of half of the Earth. The path of the Moon's shadow begins in India and crosses through Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Myanmar and China. After leaving mainland Asia, the path crosses Japan's Ryukyu Islands and curves southeast through the Pacific Ocean where the maximum duration of totality reaches 6 min 39 s.

A partial eclipse is seen within the much broader path of the Moon's shadow, which includes most of eastern Asia, Indonesia, and the Pacific Ocean.

Flashmobs are flashing up everywhere.  100 Single Ladies stop traffic with Beyonce's famous leggy dance in Piccadilly Circus, to celebrate the announcement by Trident of its free Beyonce gig in November. Nice... (concert details: http://www.tridentunwrapped.co.uk/Pages/homeflash.aspx#/home)

#1. What the ** is a flashmob?
"A flash mob (or flashmob[1]) is a large group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual action for a brief time, then quickly disperse. The term flash mob is generally applied only to gatherings organized via telecommunications, social media, viral emails. The term is generally not applied to events organized by public relations firms or as publicity stunts."
Thank You Wikipedia.

July 8, 2009 to commemorate our dear and late Michael, there was a flash mob dance tribute in Sweden.

More than 200 dancers were performing their version of "Do Re Mi", in the Central Station of Antwerp. With just 2 rehearsals they created this amazing stunt!

Don't worry they aren't all dancing.

Here is a crazy one where someone sent an e-mail around to get people to freeze in a grocery store for four minutes in their hometown:

SO RANDOM... Flash mobs also have pillow fights, dance parties, in London they had a silent disco in 2006 at various underground stations where people showed up with their own ipod/headphones and danced the night away. It's truly amazing to me how many people will get involved and how random it is. It is totally self organized. If you hear about a flashmob in your city... come on you have to join in.
