On danse sur la musique

i-Tunes is amazing!
Fast and cheap downloading!
The Confirming Friend loves i-Tunes.
I have to be careful with that shit though, because I attached my credit card to my i-Tunes and now I can buy music every day without even have to open my wallet.
Just a click away...
Heaven...

Have a listen to:
Yeasayer - All Hour Cymbals
Black Mountain - In The Future
Thanks to La Fille d'O I also downloaded Talking Heads - This Must Be the Place

Enjoy the rainy, sexy Thursday.

ELASTIC

Lost your shoelace?
Hate the way your shoes look like??
Or just want a new bracelet?
Buy an elastic. Wide one. thin one. in color or just black and skin color (i love skin color)
Sow them together and put them over your shoe! (or around your arm)

Alcoholism...

Why drinking is fun... or maybe not fun?
- we love drinking because you get more loose/relax
(we don't need to get more loose/relax because we get too loud...)
- we love drinking because everything is more funny
(we don't need to have everything more funny, because I already don't stop laughing and the everyday world is funny to me anyway)
- we love drinking because it makes you dance
(we already dance without it either, but with alcohol we go even more nuts... to the part where we hit people with our arms and legs)
- we love drinking because we're more careless
(we don't need to be more careless because we loose our shit... Or people steal my shit..)
- we love drinking so we get more mischievous
(we don't need to be more mischievous because people get scared then...hahahaa)

I had 2 bottles of champagne with my friend on friday and we laughed. and laughed. and laughed.
and then i lost my bracelet, my ring and someone stole my jacket.
but i still laughed.

There is no message in this post at all.
I just wanted to mention that drinking is fun. Sometimes. Like, once every 2 months. Because it is also very exhausting and bad for your health. And you loose stuff... And that's the worst part about alcohol.

Enjoy your monday!

How soon is Now?

SONG THAT THE CONFIRMING FRIEND LOVES:
THE SMITHS: HOW SOON IS NOW?
download now. and listen.

I am the son
And the heir
Of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
I am the son and heir
Of nothing in particular

You shut your mouth
How can you say
I go about things the wrong way ?
I am Human and I need to be loved
Just like everybody else does

I am the son
And the heir
Of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
I am the son and heir
Oh, of nothing in particular

You shut your mouth
How can you say
I go about things the wrong way ?
I am Human and I need to be loved
Just like everybody else does

There's a club, if you'd like to go
You could meet somebody who really loves you
So you go, and you stand on your own
And you leave on your own
And you go home, and you cry
And you want to die

When you say it's gonna happen "now"
Well, when exactly do you mean ?
See I've already waited too long
And all my hope is gone

You shut your mouth
How can you say
I go about things the wrong way ?
I am Human and I need to be loved
Just like everybody else does

Luscious LIPS

Lately I've been obsessed with my mouth. My lips.
My sister was saying the couple of weeks ago that the older you get, the less lip you have....
I've never had big lips anyway, but knowing now they are completely going to disappear, I got scared!
So I was thinking: cosmetic surgery.
Although I'm all against playing with your face (because you can tell anyway, no matter how much money or which doctor), I am really considering to do something with my lips eventually.
Look at the difference:


I wouldn't put silicone of course...
I was thinking of Temporary Injectable Fillers:
These are products, such as collagen (that's a natural protein of the body) or maybe even ass fat (or other body parts where you have too much fat going on), that are injected into the lips to create a fuller appearance, but which are eventually absorbed by the body. It lasts from a few weeks to several months.
OF COURSE things can go wrong and you have an infection. Or they miss place it. BUT it's only temporary!! So if you hate it, it goes away by itself... and you don't do it again! wooohoow!

The Confirming Friend wants Pamela Anderson lips.
and by the way... The Confirming Friend Loves Pamela Anderson
Check her out as new muse for Vivienne Westwood!

Legendary beauty

Have you ever seen a movie with James Dean?
If not and you only know James Dean from images on the net or posters in a tacky old american diner, then I URGE you to see a James Dean movie.
One night when I was sooo bored, I went to the video store to rent a movie.
Instead of going for my usual hit of humor with Will Ferrel or something equally silly like Tropic Thunder (which I love!!! don't get me wrong) I thought this time to go for OLD.
To broaden my culture.
To just know what people are talking about.
To just be more interesting...
(He only made 3. So you can't pick one where he would have been ugly already because he died at 24...)
Now, I rented East of Eden and Rebel without a cause.
Two movies with this one legend James Dean.... I thought: "hmmm... only saw him on a picture, what's the deal with him??"
Until this day (only 2 weeks ago I saw these movies) I am still shivering and trembling on my knees.
Wishing I was the one he kissed instead of Julie Harris or Natalie Wood...
Check it out for yourself. Please...

The Confirming Friend loves James Dean.

To peel or not to peel

The Confirming Friend has an obsession with stickers.
Not just any sticker of course.
I prefer stickers made by someone (graffiti artists or sticker artists haha) and that you have to find on the street.
The most fun part is the peeling off ... I make it a sport to peel it off meticulously so I can put it in my note book OR hang it on my wall.
Like this last MEGA sticker I found.
I found it half ripped off on an industrial wall near my door.
Probably the owner of the building tried to peel it off and it didn't work.
Good for me! It took me 5 whole minutes, and dirty hands, but I managed to take it home.
And now I am the proud owner of a huge Michael Douglas sticker ... with a partly missing head ... which I think is very artistic ... haha!

Pain-Torment-Torture

Somehow, for the 1st time in my history of nail biting, I got an infection on one of my fingers...
and it's fucking gross...
My mom always used to say: some day you will get an infection on your fingers, and it will hurt so much! and if you aren't careful, you will have your fingers amputated...
I always said: mom, you're such an exaggerator.
And now, at the age of 28, I have my 1st infection...
(Nail biting and taking subways in NY don't go together)
it started with a pulsing heartbeat in my finger... pain ... pain... not being able to sleep until 7am.
I thought I was exaggerating...
A couple of hours later (after taking 2 Motrins and i finally passed out) my finger was huge... and painful...
I went to the doctor. Got antibiotics.
Only now, 3 days later, the infection is almost gone....
And I still have my finger.
No amputation needed...
Luckileeee!

Mommy I want a treat ! part ...

Curiosity is something amazing.
Tom and I were walking in China Town. On our way to my favorite supermarket.
At one fruit and vegetable store we stop because there are large spiky balls screaming for our attention.
A small Asian lady was buying one of the supersized lychee lookalike fruits: Durian it is called. And yes, it's a fruit.
The flesh looks like a banana... When we asked if it tastes good, they said: it tastes like a everything tropical: banana, pineapple, mango...
We bought a slice...
For every scoop we took, we were wondering of it tasted good or bad. And like WHAT it tastes...
I thought it tasted like leek... but with a twist.
The flesh also unravels like leek... but then it also tasted a bit like something tropical... not sure what...
After we ate it, we were wondering if we liked it.
And if it was healthy...
I figured, we didnt really like it. I was happy to taste it, but not for another taste... 1 time was good enough...
Of course I looked up the fruit.
Seems the fruit is high in sugars, potassium, fat and carbs...
jezus ... fuck ...
awesomeness ...
we could have eaten 10 cupcakes and at least had a pleasant taste in our mouth than this durian... that just tastes like an off leek!
On top of that, the fruit smells, and I recite: "... its odor is best described as pig-shit, turpentine and onions, garnished with a gym sock. It can be smelled from yards away. Despite its great local popularity, the raw fruit is forbidden from some establishments such as hotels, subways and airports, including public transportation in Southeast Asia."

we just ate a pig-shit smelling calorie bomb! yihaaa.



The Confirming Friend is not a Durian Lover... I repeat: NOT a lover

VoltA-NY

After being completely out of my routine of writing on my blog, I decided to write again.
I owe my 3 readers and 1 follower... and I owe myself. Because I like doing it.

I havent been JUST lazy... I've been doing stuff...
Like participating at the giant Artfare Armory and Volta.
I was at Volta. Which were the young art galleries that participated.
The galleries could choose 1 artist to represent.
At the Hoet-Bekaert gallery (where I was working) they showed the work of Surasi Kusolwong.
The whole installation was a flirtation of the works of 3 other artists: Robert Morris, Marcel Duchamp and Andy Warhol.
There was a big pile of threadwaste with mirrors in it and 1 golden necklace hidden in the threads.
People could go and search for it AND they got to keep it.
The necklace said: Golden Ghost. (the name of the installation)
A topless girl was wearing one of the necklaces to show to the people.
She was a reference to the work of Marcel Duchamp "Nude descending a staircase" that was refused at the 1st Armory in 1913 because of its nudity...
On the wall there were collages and drawings that you could buy.
One of them being a drawing of the empire state, which refers to Andy Warhol's movie: Empire.

now... guess what my part was at this art fare....
A hint: I was cold sometimes...

haha!
The Confirming Friend loves ART !
