Best Halloween in awhile spent with great friends and four Robert Smith's. Mannequin Men as The Cure was AMAZING and totally hilarious. Outer Minds were also super awesome and seriously spooky. And, Football tried to light their drumset on fire and smashed a guitar at the end of the set. The decor at The Empty Bottle was very spooktacular with skeletons in questionable positions and voo doo dolls hung from the ceiling. Successful and eventful Halloween at The Bottle. And this year, Halloween was not complete without dressing our pet in costume. Due to Friday night's festivites, we didn't make the pet parade, but Janie made a pretty
tough adorable punk rocker pup.
Have you ever seen a cooler album cover?? I didn't think so. Me either. Mannequin Men's self-titled album comes out November 8th, less than three weeks away!! Just received the beer colored vinyl (totally genius) two nights ago and held it in my hands. I'm definitely a "homer," as I know someone would say, but it's truly the raddest thing I've seen or heard in awhile. Great job boys. Check out what the L.A. Times has to say about the album HERE. If you want to reserve your own copy, go to http://addendarecords.com/. MM!
Really digging the cosmos lately! Think I'll need some cosmic additions to my wardrobe.

Now this is a look I can really get behind. Mainly because this is what my braids look like anyway since I'm not meticulous at doing hair. For Rag & Bone, Guido Palau wanted to create the look of "a girl daydreaming about her boyfriend while twirling her hair into loose, messy braids."
