"Your clothes may say disco, but your eyes say rock'n'roll"

You know...that stressing life of sunbathing,

So, i hope you all enjoy August so much,

Sing your life

Sing your life
Any fool can think of words that rhyme
Many others do
Why don't you ?

Others sang your life
But now is a chance to shine
And have the pleasure of
Saying what you mean
Have the pleasure of
Meaning what you sing
Oh, sing your life
The things that you love
And the things you loathe
Oh, sing your life
Oh, sing your life

Uschi Obermaier

She was born in 1946, near Munich.
They were times of the R.A.F. (Rote Armée Fraktion), leftist organization that moved to the German company with its attacks.
Many young people were looking for a different reality to that of bourgeois society and experimenting with alternative lifestyles, drugs and free sex.
Uschi Obermaier was part of the "Commune 1", first formed for political purposes in Germany. It was created in response to moral and sexual roles conservatives of those years. While Obermaier did not participate actively in politics,
she became part inadvertently in the revolutionary movement as an inspiring femininity unrelated to the classical roles of wife and mother.She was the first German Topmodel and a pop icon of 60's and 70's.
She fell in love with Rainer Langhans and moved to the Commune 1 in 1968.
There, the couple experienced the "sexual revolution".
They spoke openly about their relationship in the media, about jealousy and love freedom,
as they would later John Lennon and Yoko Onno.

Uschi posed naked and smoking pot,
fell in love with Jimmy Hendrix and went on tour with the Rolling Stones
(it is said that she had affairs with Keith Richards, Mick Jagger and Jimi Hendrix).
She tested all what was forbidden, lived life fully and enyojed
being the figurehead of the counterculture.
It was a feminist without being exploring their sexuality in a way never seen until then,
often as guinea pig in the social laboratory of the Commune,
which was finally abandoned again seeking freedom.

While she never was proposed to be famous, her naked in the "Commune 1"
filled the headlines of newspapers and magazines of the era.
She wasn't an intellectual, but participated in meetings in which it was intended to change the social order, but confesses to have fallen asleep many times.
He accompanied on his tours of the Rolling Stones,
took drugs, but did not become addicted.
With ease slides over the various scenarios of the social season without committing to none.
In 1973 he joined Dieter Bockhorn, who was the most important man in her life.
As he toured Asia, U.S. and Mexico for six years in a bus recycling.
They renewed their wedding vowels in every country they visited.
In 1984, Bockhorn died in Mexico in a motorcycle accident.
Uschi Obermaier is 60 years old now and lives in Topanga Canyon, near Los Angeles, California in his own house.
He works as a jewelry designer.
She doesn't have children and said that his wealth are only "friends, who are dispersed throughout the world".
There's a film based on Uschi's life...it is called Das Wilde Leben, with Natalia Avelon.

Here a leave you a song from the film, Summer Wine, which is amazing
(both, the video and the song).
The singers are Natalia Avelon herself and Ville Valo.


Saturday Morning

Saturday morning
And who's gonna play with me
Six in the morning baby
I got a long long day ahead of me

The parents are sleeping soundly
The neighbors are dead as wood
I'm getting up and coming over
We gotta rock the neighborhood
It's saturday morning
And this ain't the place for me
I'm giving you warning baby
We got a whole big fat world to see

There goes my gun

New trend alert!¡

Aren't guns beginning to be a quite usual element in collections?

Here you've got some examples:

Jeremy Scott T-Shirts

Chanel Shoes,
from the Cruise collection
[i really would wear them, they're pretty cool!]

Andres Sardá swimsuit

Prada Bag

[i love this one so much!]

What do you think?
Take it or leave it?


H&M ads

I love fashion ads!
All of them...perfumes, collections, makeup...

And i've realised that when H&M has a designer colaboration... the result (apart from the collection and people fighting on the shop's door) is a great TV advertisement.

They usually have a common climate:
the "secret" of the designer identity who has colaborated,
which is discovered at the end of the spot!

Viktor & Rolf

Roberto Cavalli

Cigarette Smoker

Sat at the side of the pool at one of your houses
With wet white trousers on,
And worlds collide as the evening continues,
the dignity fucks off
Well I never came from no ghetto,
but it wasn't nowhere near here
Well spoken girls and stilettos aren't something to fear

Cigarette smoker
I'm sorry but we're all unsure how much you've had
But we think that you outta maybe not have anymore

While my guitar gently weeps

Guess what?
I just got an electric guitar!
My parents gave me as a present for my upcoming birthday...and i am so amazed!!
I am already imagining myself as a member of
a cool indie group
(Oh yes, Agy and Alexa, beware
with your boyfriends 'cause i'm coming! hehehe)...

but the truth is i can't still play anything!

Well, actually i do some kind of version of Seven Nation Army and Smoke on the water...and i'm seriously working on Nirvana's Come as you are...

My guitar looks like this...it's an imitation of a Fender

So i'm longing to learn more and more, i practically eat with the guitar!

Do anyone of you play electric guitar? How did you learn?
and....is it too difficult?

I've just read that Agyness Deyn and Albert Hammond Jr are dating!! as i said...oh my god!my favourite model and the guitarrist of my favourite group...i bet i won't sleep tonight! you all have to see me....i'm smiling like if it was me the one dating him!I thought anyone could fill the empty space that Pete Doherty and Kate Moss left but...this is better than i imagined!!
[sorry, but as you have noticed, i'm very excited about this new couple alert]

Got ma nuts from a hippy

And she danced like a medicine man
Drew a crazy picture on my hand and told me
She wanted to change my point of view
Asked me where I was going to
And it's alright...
I got my nuts from a hippy
in a camper van on Saturday night

Richard Avedon or the magic of black and white

Avedon was born in New York City. After briefly attending Columbia University, he started as a photographer for the Merchant Marines in 1942, taking identification pictures of the crewmen with his Rolleiflex camera given to him by his father as a going-away present.
In 1944, he began working as an advertising photographer for a department store, but was quickly discovered by Alexey Brodovitch, the art director for the fashion magazine Harper's Bazaar.
Avedon did not conform to the standard technique of taking fashion photographs, where models stood emotionless and seemingly indifferent to the camera. Instead, Avedon showed models full of emotion, smiling, laughing, and, many times, in action.
As Vogue Paris says:
Ramenant célébrités et anonymes à la seule égalité du noir et blanc, les privant de tout contexte ornamental, Avedon confére à ses images une étonnante modernité.
