les chiffoniers sequin leggings.


gisele ganne note.

so, yesterday i wrote an e-mail to gisele ganne inquiring about the price of her knuckledusters and i received a very sweet e-mail in reply... but as i had expected, they are waaayyy out of my price range... she writes:

"The KNUCKLEDUSTERS with bird skull are 1800 pounds as each one is unique and different.They can be commissioned.
For the moment, i don't have some retailer so you can purchase them through me.
Please have a look at my website"

so maybe a personal knuckleduster purchase from gisele is not in the near future for me, but it might be for you... check out her site... she has some extremely beautiful pieces...

korg nano digital music controllers.

$49.99 - $59.99

(thanks m!)

brian eno's bloom application for iphone.

(after i get the iphone of course, which is also on my wishlist.) andrew, who i work with, downloaded this app last night and let me play around with it this morning. it's pretty beautifully mesmerizing.


"Brian Eno, the father of ambient music and one of the greatest musical minds of our time, has just teamed up with musician/programmer Peter Chilvers to create one of the coolest, most unique iPhone apps to hit the App Store yet. Called Bloom, it's "part instrument, part composition and part artwork." It's also a must-get.

Unlike most music-creation apps, it doesn't take an existing musical instrument and cram it awkwardly into the iPhone's interface. Instead, it creates a completely new "instrument" designed specifically for the iPhone. Essentially, you're provided with a colored screen and a quiet drone. As you tap the screen in various places, different tones play depending on where you tapped. They then loop, creating a unique piece of music on the fly, one that changes gradually on its own once you stop tapping.

You can also just let it create music on its own, coming up with a new, unique piece every time you run it. It's also beautiful, with the tones appearing as colored spots that slowly fade. It's as satisfying to actively play with as it is to let do its own thing.

Bloom is available on the App Store now for $3.99, and if you're a fan of ambient music or music in general, you'll be wanting to get it right now."
