Hair High

Bill Plympton is one of my favorite animators of all time. I was so excited when he made a movie called "Hair High" that was set in the 50s. It's basically a story of two lovers that get murdered on the way to prom. Then they come back from the dead so they can finally have that magical prom date they had been waiting for. It's slightly on the weird/gross side, but I would recommend it to any fans of Cry Baby (or weird indie movies in general). I know I loved it. It's not on Netflix (yet) but if anyone is interested in it, you can buy a copy at The soundtrack is really fun too. And just for fun, here is a picture of when I got to meet Bill Plympton at a film festival thing a couple years ago. He was super nice, and super tall. I just about died.

I'm not dead, just lazy :)

It's been a while, hasn't it? I survived my Spanish class, and have been home for the summer for the month. I finally went thrifting with a couple of friends last week. I found and bought that great peacock purse. I really have no idea how old it is, but it was too cute. The only thing the tag on the inside says is "Made in Hong Kong" so it's kind of mysterious! There was another purse just like it, only it had flowers on the front and wasn't as awesome. I also found two really cute pillbox hats but one was made out of real fur (which I'm not into) and one just didn't fit quite right. I wish I had at least taken a picture of the hats.

I thought about buying them to sell on etsy or ebay. I'm kind of undecided about doing that in the first place. On one hand, it could be a fun way to get a little extra spending money when I'm away at school. On the second hand, I probably couldn't put that much time or money into it since I would be away/busy at school. Does anyone out there have any advice for me about that?
