Series Two: ‘The Lazarus Experiment’ is on the channel now.

If wonder if I can get away with playing Doctor Who on my second monitor if I just kind of put it on and pretend like everything is normal.

Sometimes I Wish That…

I would get bitten by a radioactive spider like Peter Parker, and then I could leap onto tall buildings, and shoot webs out of my wrists, and I could climb on virtually anything, and kiss boys upside down.

That’s all I ask.

Replace “sometimes” with “Every second” and, yeah, me, too.

I know that there are a lot of hard realities about being a professional ballet dancer, from the physical to the emotional, but I would weather them all just to live that dream.

Behind the Curtain

jcrew:

a peek at our September women’s shoot at
the Yakobson dance studio in Saint Petersburg,
Russia, featuring local ballerinas
We cast the lovely, lithe ballerinas from the Yakobson and Mariinksy schools through a local in-the-know Saint Petersburg production coordinator. The Mariinsky ballet school is known for helping hone the skills of such mega-talents as Anna Pavlova and Mikhail Baryshnikov.
Between takes, the girls stretched, giggled and snacked on catering with us. Fun fact: Each time they put on their satin pointe shoes, they sew the ankle ribbons for perfect placement.
We were so impressed by the girls’ dedication—they practice six days a week, with only one off for rest (and it’s a major core strength workout, we’re told). But the payoff is huge—they go on to perform in major productions around the world at renowned venues like the Metropolitan Opera, Carnegie Hall and the London Royal Opera House.
Our crew was so inspired after spending the day shooting in the studio that they attended the ballet at the Mariinsky Theatre that night. The performance? A captivating rendition of “Romeo and Juliet,” the classic tale of young love.

Pretty sure that there’s no universe where me being a ballerina would’ve worked out, but it’s still one of those unrealized dreams that hurts a little sometimes.

All I want out of life is to get married to Jonathan Rhys Meyers and have a son just like Freddie Highmore.

That and a KitchenAid in every color.

style rookie: it's happening.

So… looks like Tavi is going to be working on putting together a teen magazine that’s not like the brainless, crappy teen mags that are around today. Which is pretty much what I’ve always wanted. And they’re taking submissions. The deadline is November 19th, which means I have to get my shit together, and quickly.

Jen and I keep talking about doing ballet, but I don’t think it’s going to happen until January at least, which is kind of good because I don’t really want to find out how much I’ll suck after so long away.
