Didja' Know

that conservative states have the highest percentage of online porn users.
Here and here.
Yes, that would be Utah at the top.

"Eight of the top 10 pornography consuming states gave their electoral votes to John McCain in last year's presidential election – Florida and Hawaii were the exceptions. While six out of the lowest 10 favoured Barack Obama."

You don't even have to make this shit up.
Conservative hypocrisy, it is like delicious candy to me.

More Jane

Better, but I still need to deal with the room I am taking the pictures in.

Vintage Jane

Jane, my vintage looking manni head came today.
I am so happy with her.
I bought her from Marge Crunkleton, she did a wonderful job.
Off to take better pictures so I can list this cute 30's hat.

Vintage Oscars

Just a few comments on the Oscar fashions.
Penelope Cruz was dressed in a vintage 50's Balmain gown.

Miley Cyrus on the other hand wore a dress that seems like a copy (so much so that when I first saw the dress I thought "that looks like a vintage Dior"....well, except for the ugly belt) of a 1949/50 Dior gown seen here and here....or at least the skirt treatment.



My other favorites besides Ms. Cruz and Miley (I really did like the dress, just not the belt) were Kate Winslet, Freida Pinto, Amanda Seyfried (hated her shoes), Marisa Tomei and Phoebe Cates.
Diane Lane looked lovely, Evan Rachel Wood's dress was to die for, but the color did nothing for her and Queen Latifa looked fierce on the red carpet...not so much on stage.
Of course Angelina was stunning.

Republican Crazy

I can't finish out the week without commenting on the Republican crazy that seems to be taking a hold of some folks who just cannot figure out how Obama won and can't imagine 4 or 8 years of Democrats in charge again.

Prime example.
Alan Keyes who said this:
"Obama is a radical communist and I think it is becoming clear. That is what I told people in Illinois and now everybody realizes it is coming true. He is going to destroy this country and we are either going to stop him or the United States of America is going to cease to exist."

and this:
Is he President of the United States? According to the Constitution, in order to be eligible for president, you have to be a natural born citizen. He has refused to provide proof that he is, in fact, a natural born citizen. Ad his Kenyan relations say that he was born in Nairobi at a time when his mother was too young to transmit U. S. citizenship. So I'm not even sure he's President of the United States.
Jesus, this from a man who cut his teenage daughter out of his life and without a dime when he found out she was a lesbian, what a guy.
WWJD Alan?
Here is video in case you want to hear him spewing his crap.

And we have Sen. Shelby of Alabama:
"Well his father was Kenyan and they said he was born in Hawaii, but I haven't seen any birth certificate. You have to be born in America to be president."

All I can say is thank God for Alabama, it allows Arkansas's congress critters to look like geniuses.

Here is another awesome response to CNBC douchebag Rick Santelli from a homeowner who has done everything right who is effected by the economic downturn and how Obama's plan for homeowners will help him.

Taking Chance

Ah, Jesus.
Taking Chance has been on HBO all of 20 min. and I have been crying pretty much non-stop.
I knew this would happen.

Kevin Bacon is hot....

If You Can't Be Hot, at Least Be Interesting

At least that is my motto.
My new vintage glasses are wonderful. I got them
from my friend Tracey who runs Paddywacks Vintage
in North Little Rock and also sells on eBay.

If you live in Little Rock, AR go to Steve's Specs for Less.
They did a great job putting the lenses in my frames, nice guys and
really friendly service.
The price for the lenses was very affordable.

And the new vintage cateye clipons I got for them off Ebay.

They came with this snappy carrying case and I was pointed to a
matching wallet on Ruby Lane.

I know, I know I'm adorable.

Last night Mr. Goddess took me out to eat and the cute little cashier
just gushed over my makes you feel just a little cooler
when a hipster twentysomething thinks some part of you
might be just a tad bit cool.

What I am Watching

I love this gray marbled swirl lucite vintage purse.
On eBay, auction lasts a few more days, but it has a $75 Buy It Now.

I would buy it if I had the cash, lucite purses are getting harder and harder to find around here. and I would love to have that sitting with my other vintage purses.

Eternal Rest Grant Unto Him

I lurk on a couple of "traditional" Catholic blogs because I like the writers (as in I've read books they have written) and they make me think about my own more, shall we say, non-traditional Catholicism.

I found out today that the husband of Amy Welborn ( Charlotte Was Both), Michael Dubruiel, collapsed and passed away yesterday.
To say I am stunned and saddened is an understatement.
50 is so young....

Spare some good thoughts, or payers if that is how you roll, for this family that is hurting.
If you pass a Catholic church this week, go in and light a candle for him.

May his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Eternal light grant him, O Lord.

BTW, all you have to do is look at the guy to know he smokes a bit of weed.

Open Tabs/It Must be the Fault of That Jesus Dude

I guess Jesus just decided the Cardinals did not deserve to win the Super Bowl. Snarky diary on Dkos.

I wish Thomas Friedman would just shut the fuck up about how we all will have to sacrifice and tighten our belts. For some reason that kinda talk coming from a dude who lives in this house just makes me want to punch things. Guess what Tom, most of us missed whatever party that has been going on for the last 8 years....lecture me when you are living in double wide.

Nice shout out on Mrs. O about vintage fashion ala our First Lady's style. Good times in the comments concerning the obvious mis-dating of the featured item.

Gonna buy a new mannequin head from Marge Crunkelton, who makes reproductions of vintage mannequin heads, just can't decided which. Gotta love that name. I am stuck between these two:

Pajiba's seriously random list of the best super bowl commercials.
My vote is for Hulu.
Two words....Alrc Baldwin.
