I have recently been quite smitten by the concept of scarves. I loved how Adrien Brodie's scarf pulled together his look in Brothers Bloom:

And then last week I watched To Catch a Thief again and was compeltely fascinated by Cary Grant's polka dot scarf:

So this past weekend I ventured to the fabric store in search of materials to fashion my own scarves. I am a little unhappy about what I came away with. I think the polka dot material was a calico and seems too crunchy and stiff. I also picked up some black silky like stuff but I wasn't totally happy with the color nor the feel. The black wasn't as deep as I wished and it felt a little to nylony if that makes any sense. I will give them both a go though. Worst case scenario is that I wasted $9 on bad fabric. Now I just need to find a sewing machine.

Book of Eli

I have always been a sucker for post-apocalyptic dystopian films. Book of Eli, with its washed out lighting and deserty landscapes appears to be exactly that. It looks like Mad Max meets I Am Legend which means that I am looking forward to watching Denzel Washington, who by the way looks pretty bad ass with his graying hair, kick some butt.

In Honor of The King of Pop

This little tribute to MJ from the newest Laker is solid gold. Needless to say I am a more than a little excited for the Ron Artest era. When does the season start again?
