skywaterblue: (Support Your Local Cylons!)

I was wired like a motherfucker last night, and didn't sleep until 4am. And then I did sleep, but didn't get up until noon.

All the news out of Washington DC is intensely depressing me. This Brown in MA Senate thing kicked it off pretty bad - I really supported healthcare reform long before it turned out I also desperately need it.

So that's one thing, and then the Supreme Court has to decide to get right-wing activist and throw out every campaign finance law on the books because of the misguided notion that corporations are people entitled to free speech. So we're back to massive corporate money in every election. God only knows how that'll impact Obama's chances in 2012. Part of me suspects it's some big conspiracy based on the fact that we've had one black populist President and now they'll do their damnedest to make sure other women and minorities can't possible raise the money to run.

And then late today, Air America - a radio station I admittedly don't listen to but support on principle, announced it's closing immediately.

Oh, and the liberal media office I used to work at fired one of the last co-workers I still liked who was working there last night. It's a bum deal.

It feels like we've ruined eight years of progressive political growth in less than a week.

In the meantime, once I got up I started working on a project to raise funds to buy myself some neon bending equipment. It looks pretty good. I'm waiting to hear back from the guy selling all the equipment about what kind of deposit I would need to put down tomorrow, if he decides to make a deal with me.

It's very nerve-wracking because I think this could be a really good move for me artistically, but it involves sinking a lot of my own money into it for uncertain results.

It has indeed been a shitty week for progressive causes and freedom in general. WTF SCOTUS?

I spent last week in Florida for what was supposed to be a last hurrah of summer from Gucci Outlet Store ; the only problems with that plan were Tropical Storm Isaac and a wicked cold I brought from New York. What was supposed to be a week of fun in the sun ended up being a week of rest inside, but that meant more time with my family and more time to shop online. Before I left for Florida, I went to the Gucci NYC Flagship to check out their new stirrup collection and I was hooked. From the more structured options to the soft stirrup, there is something for everyone and every different lifestyle. While I ended up adding a new Gucci bag to my collection (post to come soon), there was another bag on my radar that I would have liked to add; the only problem was the price tag from Gucci Online Shopping (http://authenticguccihandbagsoutletusa.com).

It’s finally Friday, and we are ending the week with a little Louis Vuitton fun with photos! Photographer Vincent Bousserez had an idea similar to the movie Night at the Museum, but in this case, the Louis Vuitton Champs-Elysees store comes to life at night, and tiny figures take care and engage with beloved items. The photos are whimsical and magical and bring back childhood feelings of tiny little people taking care of our world when we are asleep.
While some of the miniatures are hard at work keeping Louis Vuitton items clean, others are playing golf amidst Monogram canvas. I don’t know which is my favorite Designer Handbags (http://www.designerhandbagsoutletusa.net), because they all give me such a feeling of joy. Peruse the photos by clicking below and visit .
