Happy 10th Birthday ipod

I'm still trying to put my thoughts together about Steve Jobs impact on our lives. But, pardon the interruption, the 10th anniversary of the ipod was yesterday. I still remember carrying around a case with 20 CDs and a CD player. How annoying was that? There were MP3 players but they were a miserable lot of crappy technology. Watch this clip of Steve Jobs introducing the ipod back in 2001.

This is the first step of Apple totally reinventing the music business. An amazing look back at history at what was then. We now take for granted that we have "1000 songs in our pocket" (except that now it is closer to 10,000+). When you finally see the ipod (Steve takes it out of his pocket) it still looks like great design and revolutionary. Thanks, Steve.

Btw - Anyone you know have a Zune? LOL. Microsoft finally killed that product this year.

Background on how the ipod was created.

We're on CNN! Geek Out....


What an incredible surprise to see that Lolita Fashion has gone mainstream. Read the article at this link.

On the whole the article captures the essence of the fashion and those of us who love it. Hopefully it will capture the interest of the readers who might just start to explore Lolita Fashion a bit deeper. As we know, there are so many resources on the internet.

Also mentioned is the quarterly Gothic and Lolita bible in English. Reminds me how sad I am that it stopped being published. I still get the Japanese version every quarter. The fashion photos are still work the price of the magazine.

My favorite statement is "While lolita fashion still remains a niche in the United States, women who participate in it are passionate about it." Darn straight!

BTW - most of the comments to the article are inane and stupid. (Male comments obviously) But some are truly worth a laugh. Can people truly be so stupid and ignorant? There are a few good and thought provoking comments also.

Birthday Party

Some terrific photos of my Birthday Party yesterday. Even more fun was that Lindsay and I decided to celebrate our birthdays together. The theme was Disney Princess! Another amazing and fun meetup. If you look closely my dress has a Cinderella theme!

AWA 2011

I've been so busy lately that I have had no time to sit down and post about some recent events.
I spent the entire Saturday at AWA. Was so much fun between the seminars, (I got a free Anime and bought 2 others. Will blog about them eventually.) shopping, spending time with girlfriends, the fashion show, and so much more. So here are some photos of me in my new dress from my BFF Miscy.
