What are best friends for, if not to make fun of your lack of coordination and to give unsolicited makeup tips?

Also, I want photographic evidence; I’ve known this girl for 16 years and have never seen her wear red lipstick…

"Isn’t it time to acknowledge the ugly side? I’ve grown quite weary of the spunky heroines, brave rape victims, soul-searching fashionistas that stock so many books. I particularly mourn the lack of female villains — good, potent female villains. Not ill-tempered women who scheme about landing good men and better shoes (as if we had nothing more interesting to war over), not chilly WASP mothers (emotionally distant isn’t necessarily evil), not soapy vixens (merely bitchy doesn’t qualify either). I’m talking violent, wicked women. Scary women. Don’t tell me you don’t know some. The point is, women have spent so many years girl-powering ourselves — to the point of almost parodic encouragement — we’ve left no room to acknowledge our dark side. Dark sides are important. They should be nurtured like nasty black orchids."
Gillian Flynn (via elucipher)

I’m so pleased with myself! Homemade challah success on the first try. It’s not the prettiest loaf, but it is delicious, I assure you. 

L’shanah tovah.

If you live in Los Angeles, you may or may not recognize the locations in these paintings.

Art from our main page today. "100 Not So Famous Views of L.A." by Barbara A. Thomason

According to the artist, “This series of paintings began in late 2007 and was completed in early 2011.  There are actually 107 paintings.

The mid-nineteenth century Japanese Ukiyo-e artist Hiroshige’s  “One Hundred Famous Views of Edo” inspired this body of work.  The compositions I choose incorporated the vertical oban format, roughly 14”x 9” and the technique of bokashi or color gradations that are hallmarks of Ukiyo-e woodcuts.

I executed these works in cel vinyl paint because it resembles woodblock ink in texture and tone.  The paintings are not of well-known views of Los Angeles but are more intimate and quirky.  The pieces are informed by the color, compositions and tonal changes of Hiroshige’s works.

My objective was to pay homage to both Los Angeles and Hiroshige’s wonderful prints. “
