So where were we...?

Ages ago I read some interesting things and meant to upload some links. I failed. So to fix matters, I have created the list. Here it is:

Bromosexuals: gay men gravitating towards masculine drag, getting mistaken for straight (NY Observer):
The clinical name for the bromosexual shift is enantiodromia, a Jungian kind of law of physics: Too much of anything makes its opposite grow in popularity. Hippies become yuppies, private-school alpha brats become slacker trustafarians, housewives become cougars.

Thank goodness for the the Norwegians! A real seed vault is being planned in case of Day After Tomorrow-type apocalypse happens. Species will not be wiped out - the plants will survive. Hooray!

From porn to fashion magazine: the Dutch-duo show how it's done. Butt's owners have branched in Fashion Man and most recently, The Gentlewoman - a ladies' version. This new addition to the stableblock is edited by Penny Martin, who was with ShowStudio for seven years and is the Rootstein Hopkins Chair of Fashion Imagery at the London College of Fashion.

This web page at the NY Times has a beautiful slideshow of Alexander McQueen's final collection. You really need to see these garments - they are works of art.

No, it wasn't April Fools Day - I checked. This article describes how kind words and a more positive attitude might help one appear younger and more radiant. The research was based on work by Dr Emoto, which of course, sounds like a fake name that someone looking into the power of emotions would choose when logging into a healthy and beauty chatroom. However, being nicer to oneself is a recommendation I can wholeheartedly get behind.

Ugly Betty's nephew played by Mark Indelicato celebrated his 16th birthday with castmates. Two things to note here: a) His outfit is rocking! b) His co-stars look like lots of fun and as if they really care that he has a nice time. Now it could all be a PR stunt and the whole thing was only 20mins long, but still - it looks great.

How much does Juanita W. Goggins (pictured here in an Associated Press shot in 1974, when she became the first black woman elected to the South Carolina legislature) (who sadly died in low temperatures) look like Dr Bailey (Chandra Wilson) from Grey's Anatomy? The answer = LOADS!

Finally, two music items. Lady Gaga and Beyonce's official music video premiere and Florence and the Machine "DOG DAYS ARE OVER" Music Video from LEGS MEDIA.
