A friend of ours who we used to drink and talk politics with in Moscow just had his first book of essays published about modern day Russia. Peter Pomerantsev‘s observations are interesting and accurate about the country that gave birth to me, which I love and hate pretty equally. The perfect title of the book, “Nothing is True And Everything is Possible,” sounds a lot like LA too. Both cities have a lot more in common than either would probably like to admit: new money, young models, trophy wives, fast cars, and a very distorted sense of reality amidst a small portion of the population that thinks it not only runs the world but that the world wouldn’t run without it. I was going to post some fun photos of Peter from our rowdy expat days below but I think he will appreciate this memory lane photo shoot more, which I did at the dacha we all shared in the summers. Peter will be at Half King at 505 W 23rd this Monday December 8th at 7pm for a reading and signing. Continue reading
Who can’t use a little price break this time of year? Yeah, me too, so I found some super cute stuff for under $50. Charlotte Russe floral pumps, J. Crew long crystal claret necklace, Madden Girl crossbody bag, Harrod’s London sketch i-Phone case, Modcloth Just a Tinge of Fringe circle scarf in burgundy, Laconic double breasted long sleeve coat (this one is a total steal, it’s pretty chic for $40), Abercrombie Zoe dress in white, and Forever 21 buckled lace up boots.

I like to wait until the last minute to do my holiday shopping because there is always something that pops into my head, which is just perfect for someone I love. December 9th two more items hit the stores that should be added to your list for some of the creative peeps in your life or to your own shelves. Jennifer Williams’ cool book of drawings based on her blog, What My Daughter Wore, comes out along with Mute Records’ latest release from The Knife. “Shaken Up Versions,” is a remix of their recent live tour, which marks the end of an era and the last tour the band will ever do.

Warpaint did a remix of Daughter‘s track “Winter,” which is killing it. Listen here. Love everything about this and all of these cool girls. Get ready to press repeat.
The letter written by Neal Cassady, which inspired Jack Kerouac’s writing style for On The Road and had been lost for 65 years was recently found in San Francisco in an old box. Like most liberal arts school graduates I have a healthy obsession with that period of American culture and literature so I think this is really cool. It’s being auctioned off in two weeks in California by Profiles in History.

The list is endless but these are essential viewing, especially if you love film. In the Mood For Love by Wong Kar Wai, probably the most beautiful film ever made is above and more below. You actually don’t even need subtitles for In the Mood because it is so impeccably shot and poetically told that the words become totally inconsequential to understanding the story, which is also timeless.
