Whoranging for Jim Hodges

Jim Hidges chiffon and silk headscarves installation Heres Where We Will Stay 1995 Hammer Museum

over the weekend, i boogied on down to the hammer museum to catch the closing day of jim hodges' "give more than you take." it was gorgeous and moving and magical and textured. much of his work revolves around the fragility of life, transformation, and growing up gay in spokane, WA.

if you get a chance to see hodges' work in person, drop everything and check it out. it's worth every step to the journey!

DRUGSTORE COWBOY - WHORANGE CAST 2015

Racooon lion bunny and mushroom felt holiday oranaments

while packing up my tree yesterday, i realized my holiday ornaments would make the perfect cast for a 2015 remake of "drugstore cowboy."

if you haven't seen gus van sant's 1989 film about a band of drug addicts (lead by matt dillon) who support their habit by robbing pharmacies and hospitals, put in on your netflix queue. sure, it's dark and depressing, but it is really, really good. plus, the hair is amazing and the production design is gorgeously gritty.

i think my version would replace vicodin with swedish candy, though, because i love a good twist and i love a good gummy fish. also, there will be no guns in my version. just lassos. little twine lassos.

the cast would be as follows:

lasso raccoon - matt dillon

fur coat raccoon - kelly lynch

pink pant bunny - heather graham

denim lion - james legros

see the original trailer here for your inspiration pleasure. enjoy!

 
HAPPY 2015, DARLINGS!

Whorange New Years Eve 2015 Eames Blocks and Confetti

OMG, what? WHORANGE, is that you?

darlings, if you are still visiting my little blog, i bow down to you and offer you many hugs. i've been so busy with work and life that my sweet sunshine WHORANGE has been long neglected. however, perhaps this orange NYE image will help breathe life back into my blog? let's see if it works!

also, you can always play with me on instagram. i exist there, too!

happy 2015, everyone! hope your new year is full of shimmy and sparkle!

VOTE!

Whorange get out the vote 2014

"the biggest sin is sitting on your ass." -- florynce kennedy

voting day is today, darlings! better lace up your skates and roll on down to your local polling place. 

when i was young, my mom said, "if you don't vote, you can't complain when things don't go your way." not that i like to complain, but i'm pretty opinionated when it comes to a handful of issues and love to voice them in voting booth. in fact, i've voted in every presidential, midterm, and local election since i turned 18. guess you can say, i'm an election groupie.

also, when you vote, you get a groovy "i voted" sticker as a parting gift. the perfect accessory to take you from office-to-evening!

okay, enough chit chat. let's boogie in the voting booth!

{need to find your polling place? consult the aptly named where's my fucking polling place.}

Fine and Dandy: Grand Budapest Hotel Halloween

Fine and Dandy shop Grand Budapest Hotel Halloween

oh hello, darlings! remember me? i remember you. and let me say, you've never looked more smashing!

i'm opening the WHORANGE doors today to shine a spotlight on matt fox and enrique crame, the magnificent proprietors of new york's fine and dandy shop. this year, they won halloween with their head-to-toe channeling of concierge gustave h and lobby boy zero moustafa from the grand budapest hotel.

the threads. the vintage luggage. the mendl's box. the 'staches. the attitude. wes anderson would be proud!

congratulations, matt and enrique! thank you for keeping halloween haute and for always bringing how-to handsome to us all.

Hooray

Hooray DIY banner by Hank and Hunt

kittens, i've been working on a secret project for the last week. if all goes well, i'll be able to tell you later this year. anticipation!

i'm still in the thick of it, but wanted to take a brief pause to say HOORAY for side projects. i think this DIY banner on hank and hunt and photo pretty much captures my excitement and stonefaced exhaustion.

make a hooray banner yourself to celebrate whatever strikes your fancy -- being a good friend, keeping a plant alive, a good hair day, the sky's the limit!

A WHORANGE MESSAGE

Ego Balloon

oh, hello there!

it's been about 80 years since i last blogged (well, really a month, but it feels like forever!). i have been recuperating from some crazy house installations, and as a result, embraced something called sleep (a very unfamilar phenomenon) and even took a little vacation to maui (more on that later).

hope you don't mind my sporatic blogging. i am trying to get back into my tube top and rollerskates in order to serve up some more WHORANGE to you on a daily basis.

in the meantime, come play with me on instagramtwitter and pinterest. i promise not to pop your ego -- only stroke it, of course!

xoxo

{UPDATED:  image "rapid ego deflation experiment" by stephane graff, 2009. thank you, jeff!}
