What inspires you? So many things actually, but today… 1980s movies.

The music, the costumes, the Molly Ringwald. It’s pretty much what every day with me is about.

I was so happy to draw this pretty in pink inspired doodle!

Gino’s Day Off

6 Oct

I love 80s movies.

If you know me or read this website you may already know this… because it’s one of my favorite thing to talk about.

Here is my interpretation of my co-workers and all around hilarious friends as Ferris Bueller and company:

I ended up being Cameron, because I couldn’t pull of that sweet leather jacket Elisa has on.

And Gino really needs that vest in real life. Ladies love leopard vests.

Danke schön!

Lists of Yesterday… today

30 Aug

Since this weekend I was trapped at home with 5 very small, super homeless kittens (I will explain in another post.) I decided to clean up and give away some already read books. Including books I’ve had since high school… Like that one from Mr. O’s class that we never ever used, not even once.

On a side note: One of my personal favorites “The Picture of Dorian Gray” will never be given away, but was with those stacks of books.

To get to the point of this post… I was perusing my old reading material when a hilarious list slid out from between its pages. It was a list with who my high school friends would be if it were the 1980’s.

The answers are as follows:

Christine’s tide would be high as Blondie’s front woman Deborah Harry

Although no longer blond, Christine could pull off this look. Give it a whirl.

Isabel would be rocking and rolling as Joan Jett.

I wonder if Joan could love Clay Aiken like that...

Nikki T. would be Chrissy Hynde of the Pretenders fame. Because both of them love black clothes

Nikki T is all about the rock n' roll, and and wearing black...

Lisa was would be lacey glove wearing Madonna…

 

and Yours truly would be the Technicolor Cyndi Lauper.

Okay I mostly calm down my clothing for work... but neon green is a neutral, I promise.

All of these things still in a way make sense.

I think this photo fills in the mind gap of this list.

There is something to say about the hilarious truths of High School girls. Boy, do I still love making lists though.

Care for a Golden Gaytime?

24 Aug

Okay I cannot resist posting this 1980’s Australian ice cream commercial.
It’s really funny, and not in the way intended. I suggest watching it to find out why “it’s so hard to have a gaytime on your own.”

And do us all a favor.

This song is in my head. Mayhaps it should be in yours.

Lady Gaga’s Inspiration

22 Sep

You may see her shirtless and sometimes pantless action… but is Lady Gaga hiding something?

 

No I’m not talking about the people who says she’s a Mister Gaga… I’m talking about her fashion inspirations….

Is she hiding the fact that her “look” & fashion come from the hit cartoon Jem & the Holograms?

I think Lady G looks a lot like Jem/Jerrica…  you can note the similarities yourself….

Lady Gaga:

Jem:

Do you remember that Jem’s theme song promises you “Adventure… excitement… Glamour and glitter, Fashion and fame!” Doesn’t that sound like Lady Gaga’s game?

Jem thinks this is truly outrageous… 
If you are an 80’s child you remember the wild fashions that happened on this more than rad cartoon. The makeup, the hair, the uneccessary drama, the boyfriend who is in love with the same girl more than once. This sounds eerily identical to the happenings of Lady Gaga.

 But I really don’t mind….. because Lady Gaga is fabulous without holograms… and if there were a movie about Jem (that wasn’t Hanna Montana) I think Lady Gaga should star in it.

Ohhhhhhh the lovegame.

 

Have a truly Outrageous Day!
