Just Farts

Here I am sitting in traffic waiting for a red light to go green when I turn my head to the right and spot the above sign. Took me a second to figure out what the sign was saying but the right placement of that street-crossing timer made me giggle on the spot.
Thank God for never leaving the house without my little Sony otherwise I wouldn't have been able to capture such smile-inducing "trompe l'oeil" message. Hooray for Delray Beach!

Flying Down To Rio

Yeah, yeah, yeah... Yes, I've been neglecting the blog these past few months and I am sorry for that. I've had too much on my plate and haven't been too "inspired" to write & post. I do miss being here more often and will make a bigger effort to remain more present at Little-Pumpkins from now on. I will be in Rio de Janeiro as of tomorrow morning for a 2-week holiday trip. I'm going to see the folks and bring Booboo back to th US with me when I return. I have a small trip planned to Parati and Ilha Grande and will post about it as I get the chance. Bon Voyage to moi!

Where In The World Is Pumpkin Man?

Many apologies for my recent disappearance from the blog but I've been occupied with unrelated issues and haven't had the time to tend to my little Pumpkin baby. To write on the blog also requires inspiration and I haven't had much of that lately and to post stuff just to do it - without real passion - I'd rather not. Worry not because I am not going through any personal crisis or anything like that - no suicidal tendencies here, thank God - just chilling...and rolling with my homies. I will be returning slowly to posting very soon, OK? Hugs & kisses!! PM

Superheroes @ The NY Times

This week, the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art will present “Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy” (May 7 through Sept. 1), which spotlights more than 500 ensembles—from sportswear to haute couture to film costumes—that reflect a heroic ideal.
On yesterday's The New York Times Sunday Styles Magazine photographer Raymond Meier and Brazilian supermodel Caroline Trentini displayed an array of super-powered looks inspired by the exhibition. They created fun ficticious superheroes that are ready to fight for fashion victims everywhere - if not one themselves.

KUNOICHI All her life, Kunoichi heard that only men can be ninjas. But when her naïve parents inadvertently ran afoul of the Japanese mob, the time had come to put her years of secret training to use.

MORAY When a family’s boat capsizes in rough seas, an infant survives — thanks to eerily glowing coral on the ocean floor. The baby grows up to be Moray, the protector of all sea creatures, including sushi.

INSECTA A scientist at a pest-control lab is accidentally exposed to lethal aerosols, enabling her to now communicate with the vermin (men?) she once devoted her life to destroying.

ABSOLUTE ZERO She came to 2008 on a vital mission — to prevent a catastrophic war. Absolute Zero knows her ability to stop time will be critical ... if her amnesia can be cured.

LE RENARD As a little girl, Le Renard would always sabotage her father’s weekend hunts. Her reward from Mother Earth was a mystic totem that grants her the cunning and heightened senses of a fox.

CIRCUIT BREAKER Lights! Camera! Disaster! A horrific accident on the set of a low-budget flick turned a B-actress into Circuit Breaker, who uses her electrical powers to fight pushy publicists, casting-couch directors and ill-conceived superhero adaptations.

SURREPTITIOUS Instead of being irked by classmates describing her as a wallflower, Surreptitious embraced it. She used her smarts to fashion material that allows her to literally blend into shadows. It’ll take her investigative journalism career far.

Alessandra Ambrosio @ Arena

Brazilian supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio gracing the June 2008 cover of UK's Arena Magazine. The Victoria Secret's Angel is dubbed "The Body From Brazil" on the mag's cover line and I am sure anyone can see why. I hear she is pregnant right now.

People Magazine's 100 Most Beautiful: Kate Hudson??

It all started going down hill when Matt Damon was chosen Sexiest Man Alive in 2007. Now People Magazine - the epitome of common sense & good taste (not!) - chooses Kate Hudson to grace the cover of their annual "100 Most Beautiful" issue. C'mon, Kate Hudson? She is alright looking but in no way worthy of the such privilege - and being on People's cover surely ain't one. Besides being a so-so actress, that if wasn't for her lineage would NEVER have gotten the foot in the door, she is just very...average. That's it, she is average. She is not a drop-dead gorgeous stunner like let's say Adriana Lima or an exotic beauty like Mila Kunis. She is just Goldie Hawn's daughter - plain and simple - and the only reason why she made the cover. Am I wrong?
My suggestions? Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, Katherine Heigl, Kristen Bell, Salma Hayek, Hillary Swank, Angelina Jolie, Kristin Davis, Gabrielle Union, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna and the list goes on...

Attack Of The Guidos

I am not too sure where to start... The hair gel? The eyebrows? The fake tan? The cheap International Male wardrobe? The pout?
The Guido is an American institution born in New Jersey in the mid 90's. It has spread across the country and seems that won't go away. The Gotti kids are their poster boys and there are many sites that proclaim love to all things Guido. Even at my gym here in Florida I spotted 3 Guidos just last night - dead serious! You don't actually need to know them to hate them. The whole Guido-Stance (pout + squinty eye) is too Zoolander to be taken seriously but still I wouldn't want to hang with them - ever! Their whole look seems like a diluted version of discarded gay fashions and trends from the past decade - and probably unbeknown to their macho fronts - they look SO gay!

Flowerella by Kenny Scharf love this Kenny Scarf vase! This very cool resin sculptural flower-holder is about 12” h x 9” l x 8” w and retails for US$300.00. It is available at Cerealart and it's part of an edition of 250 units - très collectable!
I've been a fan of Kenny Scharf's work since the mid-80's and proudly own a copy of The B-52's 1986 album (in vinyl) "Bouncing Off The Satelites" - artwork by "you guess who" - the closest I will ever get to one of his original oeuvres...

Suggestive Vintage French Postcards

The dog is mad because he smells ass...

What is she holding on that tray?? Is that what I think it is??

Your granny-panties will you if you drink too much wine in France...

...he loves my ass, he loves it not...

This card is very "subtle" but you get the idea...

It looks to me like two guys getting some "Brokeback Mountain" alone-time....

You are supposed to pick what you'd like to do together, like a prayer, a poem, make love or make babies. Tough choices...but I pick the sex one!
