This post is dedicated to nothing in particular - just things I have found on my travels.
This site ---> Emergency Compliment. Hmmm... I'm strangely attracted and comforted by it. Click "I still feel crappy" at the bottom if you want to see the complete range of compliments. Here's a couple to start you off:
I scanned this ad from my mother's stash of old Life Magazines. It's from the 1960s. When I saw it I thought to myself - boy do we live in another universe today or what? What do you think it's an advertisement for? Here's a multiple choice for you:
b) a dating service
c) ghastly hors d'oeuvres
d) an airline
Rodney Graham is from Vancouver, Canada. He is described as an artist/ musician/ humourist...hmmm am going to explore that further. I'm intrigued.
Speaking of Canada, I found this strange Pierre Trudeau paper dress on Etsy. Trudeau was the 15th Prime Minister of Canada from 1968 to 1979 and again from 1980 to 1984. Apparently it was made for attendees to the Liberal convention in 1968. Bizarre.
And while we've on the subject of Canada (*ahem*), I saw the most brilliant crime/ thriller/ biographical film the other day about French gangster Jacques Mesrine. It is in two parts: Mesrine: Killer Instinct and Mesrine: Public Enemy No. 1. Jacques Mesrine was a totally unhinged, violent French criminal who rampaged about France and then Canada in the '50s,'60s and '70s. He had a penchant for disguises and was known as "The Man of a Hundred Faces". He was also incredibly charismatic and always had a glamorous gal on his arm. Anyway, it is very well done and stars my favourite *cough cough* French actor Vincent Cassel. Here's the trailer.
How mean does Cassel look in that last poster! As they say in France: zut alors!

Well, that's my post. I trust everyone is having a grand weekend!
