taking the pop culture temperature

Andy Warhol, Fame Monster

Lady Gaga, Fame Monster

Do you have thoughts on Lady Gaga? Do tell! Have you seen her latest Telephone vid? I can see the headlines now, "Lady Gaga Reinvents Herself!" Isn't that what they always said of Madonna? I have heard her interviewed a bunch of times, and I have some theories, which I may share later. Like about her new album title, The Fame Monster. What has Andy Warhol done to her brain?* And her hair? I wonder if Lady Gaga's wig velcro's onto her head like Warhol's? I am full of questions. Anyway, your thoughts please.

*Watch this interview vid on here. She says, "Right now the fame is the art." If that isn't stolen from the lips of Warhol, I don't know what is.

a glamour do or don't

Here's the copy that went along with this "Glamour Fashion Do" (or don't?):

DON'T forgot to keep things simple when wearing a feather skirt.

Hellooo, gorgeous! Ten bucks says you'll hear that greeting every time you walk into a room with a kicky little number like this on. When wearing a plume-accented skirt,

DO skip headbands or dangly earrings-one party-friendly item is all you need.

ADAM, Spring 2010

Oh, okay. Let me get this straight. So what you're saying is don't go head-to-toe feathery? Because I would have thought to wear as many feathers as possible. I mean, didn't Bjork get rave reviews when she wore her swan to that awards ceremony years ago?

Bjork and the swan...

lots o'fun (at the parade)

I liked her striped socks.

Without further adieu, some fun shots of the NYC Saint Patrick's Day Parade. For some reason, I became fascinated with the tubas. I stuck to the staging areas on the side streets near Grand Central, because quite frankly the parade route up Fifth Avenue was mobbed. Here's a few slice-of-life shots for you all to enjoy!

This is as close as I could get to the parade route on Fifth Avenue.
Very very very crowded

Good plummage on this band. They're lunching before marching.

Another staging area on 46th-or-so Street

Jovial Grand Marshals. Very excellent outfits.

I liked this guy. Probably because he smiled for my picture.

pizza truck

Vinny Vincenz Mobile Pizza!

In the Garment District, you can find the truck parked on 40th
near the corner of 6th Avenue

Come summer, there are so many food truck options in New York, it is ridiculous. But Vinny Vincenz seems to operate year-round. In the Garment District, you can find Vinny parked on 40th Street between Broadway and 6th Avenue. Opinions greatly vary on the taste. Have you tried it? What do you guys think?

do you dream of cider donuts?

Breezy Hill Orchard Homemade Apple Cider Donuts in NYC!
Nothing but good stuff in these donuts. mmmmmmmmm.

I was just wondering, do you dream of homemade apple cider donuts? Because if you do, I've got just the place... Saturdays at the Union Square Greenmarket, there's a guy who sells a donut that will make you weep with joy. It's so fresh and, well, almost wholesome and healthy! And definitely delicious. Sure the Greenmarket sells (actually healthy) veggies and fruits, but they also sell LOTS of fresh baked goods. And they are quite amazing.

Union Square Greenmarket
Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays
(different vendors each day)
