Justice, the band, just released their newest album. It is about $15 on Itunes and includes a documentary including their tours, concerts, and a cd with live songs. I anticipate the album will be awesome. I have sampled a few of the songs and have really enjoyed it. "Across The Universe", their dvd, included with the album is absolutely ridiculous. It is a documentary of their latest tour and their shenanigans on their tour which include being arrested, speaking with homeless men, going to gun ranges, and getting married in Las Vegas.

I typed in "French Farmer" on google, and found this picture. I was looking for some old photos, but this picture was even better. A caption below the photo read: "Roadblock to free trade: French farmers ride their tractors from the EU headquarters to Paris, protesting proposed changes to the Common Agricultural Policy"

If you want to check out some good music that has been around for a little while, but without any hype listen to TV On The Radio. The band has a really unique style. I can't characterize it into one genre. Instead, I must admit that it is a smorgasbord of well-played beats and tunes.

These picture are from this week's best fashion article. The article is about the spread of plaid in the fashion industry. It amazes me that it would even be considered a new coming phenomenon. I have always assumed that plaid was a staple in any person's wardrobe. Clearly,I have been proven wrong by The New York Times.
The show of the week is Summer Heights High. It premiered not too long ago on HBO. I saw a clip of it and could not stop laughing. Please check it out, but be prepared for a lot of crude "humour". I can't indent for some reason and that is the reason for the poor formatting of my latest postings.
A quick fashion note: Rugby is having a sale ending November 17th.
The band, Kings of Leon, seem to be really popular this week. My sister introduced me to them, I heard a lot of news about the band on the radio, and according to one of my friends the band's songs were a hit soundtrack to Gossip Girl. You can check them out by following the link that I posted above to sample some of the tracks.
I also have recently discovered Japanese fashion magazines. They have interesting titles like Huge, Non-no, and Pop-eye. However, they are legitimate magazines and pretty interesting things to flip-through. I will post a few pictures in the upcoming days.
Yesterday, Michael Williams, writer of "A Continuous Lean" menswear blog, posted that Take Ivy was sold for $1424.99 on ebay. Take Ivy is a photographic memoir of Ivy League students during the sixties. It seems like a priceless possession that a person would always want to hold on to like old yearbooks and old letters. I guess not to everyone.
Michael Williams is also writing a side column for an online fashion magazine known as Selecticism. I've been finding his posts really interesting.
