Tim Burton's 'Vincent': Latest Obsession

Armen Atoyan
Armen Atoyan Sep 14, 2011

One of Tim Burton's earliest films is one that most people don't know about. Aside from being one of his earliest films, this short is also his first stop motion film. The short is called 'Vincent', named after one of Burton's idols Vincent Price, who can also be seen as the scientist in 'Edward Scissorhands', and follows a young boy split between his world and his dark imagination. The film seems eerily close to what must have been Burton's experience as a child.

Have you seen 'Vincent' before?

Life's A Beach

Going to the beach is something I don't often do, but this summer I actually made it a point to go at least once. Although it's late in the summer, I had an amazing day with friends while chillin' in the sand. We also made what I think is a pretty impressive sand castle thanks to a a handy little tool (aka a Starbucks cup).

Oh and that "Box of Water", I got that in Malibu and although it wasn't the best water I've ever had, it defiantly was the most original.


How do you think the sand castle turned out?

Have you made one yet this summer?

Lisa Kudrow Gives 'Web Therapy' on Showtime

Lisa Kudrow stars in Showtime's Web Therapy and let me just say that this is one of the funniest shows on Showtime. The plot of the show is that Lisa Kudrow, a terrible therapist, wants to change the world of therapy by eliminating "boring" 50 minute sessions with a 3 minute web session. The result of which makes a hilarious comedy!

Quote for the screenshot below: "Nothing you've said in your fifty-minute sessions has ever even been slightly interesting... until this!"


Watch this clip and see for yourself what these 3 minute sessions are all about... And this is what the show looks like: a computer screen!

Watch Web Therapy on Showtime, Tuesdays at 11pm ET/PT. The show aired on July 19th and is five episodes in. Unfortunately, it's not gathering a huge following and we can ot let this show get canceled, like other genius shows... aka Arrested Development.

Do you watch 'Web Therapy'?

Who are your favorite clients that Lisa Kudrow has on the show?

Audiences fell in love with him as the 40-Year-Old Virgin years ago, but we really got to know (and love!) him as Michael Scott from The Office.  Golden Globe-winning actor Steve Carell has won our hearts and made us laugh throughout the years in his series of hilarious (The 40-Year-Old Virgin, The Office) as well as moving (hello Little Miss Sunshine) roles.

In honor of Steve’s birthday today, we throw a celebratory GIF PARTY!!!

My Impromptu Photoshoot with Jellis Photography

So last week I had an impromptu photoshoot with my good friend, and amazing photographer John Ellis. Right now he is doing more retouching work (currently just finished China Vogue) but he wants to get back into photography so we had a last minute, super random shoot. We started shooting at 2am and seriously it didn't feel like it took forever, but we didn't end up getting done until 4am. Crazy right! Anyway, these were both taken in the parking garage, proving you can shoot anywhere, any time.

You can see more of Ellis' work on his site Jellis Photography.

What do you guys think of the photos?

Karl Lagerfeld is never seen without his sunglasses! The iconic Chanel fashion designer was recently seen without his glasses, an extremely rare sight. Lagerfeld is known for always having something covering his face, whether it's a fan or a pair of sunglasses. But not today!

What do you think about the way Karl Lagerfeld looks without sunglasses? Should he keep them on, or mix it up without them?

Latest Obsession: The Pack AD

I just discovered this (new for me) band called The Pack AD, and I am obsessed with their song "Sirens" from thier new album Unpersons. I'm not exactly sure how to describe the music except for that it's amazing. I'd say it's a combination of rock, and electric with just the right amount of slow and steady tones that make you just want to put it on repeat.

The Pack AD consists of two girls from Vancouver, Canada, with the drummer Maya Miller and guitarist/vocalist Becky Black. I love this style of music and I really thing you guys will to. You can find them on Myspace or on thier website ThePackAfterDeath.com. You can download "Sirens" for free on RCRDLBL.
