it's that time of the year

Palm tree pink sky

Palm trees at sunset

Bonfire on the beach

growing up in los angeles, summers always looked like a '70s album cover -- only with a thick layer of smog.

nonetheless, when it starts heating up in land-locked hollywood, it's impossible to not want to lace up your roller skates and do a little california dreaming down the venice strip or cruise along PCH in a convertible blasting your high school make out song.

of course, if you don't have time for any of this, there is always pinterest. that's where i found these images.

now, pour me a cocktail and surf some pinterest boards.

liberace: behind the candelabra

HBO Liberace Behind the Candelabra

kittens, i've been waiting FOR-EV-ER for the premiere of behind the candelabra.

my former boss, howard cummings, is the uber-talented production designer behind this glittery spectacle and i guarantee that your mind will be blown to rhinestone bits. a handful of my friends also worked on this film (from set designers to coordinators) and i couldn't be more happy for them. 

to top it off, behind the candelabra is an incredible screenplay about a complex man and his complicated and closeted relationship.

sex, drugs, music, sparkles, plastic surgery, feathers, and love - who can ask for anything more?

liberace...that's who!

doggie domiciles: architecture for dogs

Papier Papillon by Shigeru Ban for a Papillon in Architecture for Dogs

japanese graphic designer, kenya hara, collaborated with a handful of acclaimed artists and designers to create architecturally awesome doghouses and structures. each design was specifically customized to particular a pooch's size, shape, and temperament.

the result - 13 stylish canine spaces. but, that's not all...each creation comes with a DIY, downloadable blueprint! yes, you can build your doggie their own architectural pad!

from ribboned cardboard sculptures to pug plywood mountains, our loyal four-legged friends definitely deserve a little structural swank.
