Bravo's doing a Project Runway marathon on right now. I have to say, although I enjoyed this season, I don't think it quite lived up to the first one. The designs this season have been mediocre, overall. Anyway, I think Santino is a clear winner; I'll be surprised if it goes any other way. His collection is the best thing he's designed the whole season. Chloe and Daniel's collections are kind of uninspired, I think. And I know this is an incredibly unpopular opinion, but I like Santino. Yeah, he acts like an arrogant jackass all the time, but I don't think he's a genuinely mean person. And he's hysterical. And anyway, being an asshole doesn't compromise one's talent; look at Karl Lagerfeld.

I think I might do a post about the fall ready-to-wear shows.

I feel like posting some more music. So:

Parks and Recreation- Break Into Song. It makes me want to break into song.

Devotchka- Death By Blonde. It sounds like a song from a sexy spy movie that is set in Eastern Europe.

Karl Blau- Into the Nada. I like the surfy, laid-back feeling.

Jamie Lidell- Multiply. Who doesn't like soul music? This has a classic sound without sounding too derivative.

The Go! Team- Junior Kickstart. Everyone should have heard of them by now, but I was listening to this and thought I should post it.

The Knife- Heartbeats. Which is better: the original or Jose Gonzalez's cover? I am totally in love with them both.

And if you are interested, you can download all but one song from Jenny Lewis's Rabbit Fur Coat for free at the label's website. It's really good.

I just had a really good brownie. Yum.

Santino is my favorite, too! I hated him at first, but then he was less of a jerk and more funny. And made more interesting stuff (and some really ugly). I hope he wins.

Yeah. For me, interesting beats out pretty. Santino definitely has more creativity to bring to the fashion world than Daniel or Chloe.
And his Tim Gunn impressions were the best part of this season.

what do you think of ANTM? I think I'm gonna start taping it or watching it religiously or something because I'm like the only one not obsessed with TV in my house.

I love ANTM! My favorite parts are the photoshoots.
