Wes Anderson is one Sly Fox

It's hard to meet a more agreeable director. He seems to be a man who is always two steps ahead of his time. I'd say way ahead of his time except that usually entails a man whose films are appreciated AFTER his death while he for some reason seems to release films right at the perfect profit point. Hmmmm What direction are you taking us in now Mr. Wes?

Do you completely understand the whole recession situation?

Do you barely understand what mortgage-backed securities are? Do you have no idea what the F%!K sub-prime loans are? Me too, until I listened to probably the best podcast team ever. Chuck and Josh are a funny, entertaining perfect way to start your morning. Click subscribe on your itunes and listen to their 15 minute podcasts on everything from what a body farm is to how the CIA almost completely created the LSD drug culture (seriously its absurd the facts they find).

Don't worry, crazed theorists their not, these boys do some serious investigating and have wrote articles on everything you did, and didn't, want to know. I have a rough, if any, idea on what the hell happened to the economy and within 15 minutes I feel like a pro. I know this sounds like an advertisement but i'm such a loyal fan I can't help it. It's 15 minutes of unusual in what can sometimes be a very typical day.

Crocs go down, hard.

Fashion world be praised! The company notorious for manufacturing Crocs is going bankrupt. After years of proclaiming their total uglosity and complete lack of support despite popularity their finally going bankrupt due to the economy. Celebrate and burn yourself some Crocs!

this is why i love the internet took human dolphin love so seriously. It had frequently asked questions, and the guy who wrote it was an expert. He had loved dolphins since age twelve. The best thing about was that this was not a joke. Also, this guy was not in it for profit. This was a dot org. He put his time and energy up there just to benefit all the curious potential dolphin lovers out there. He did it for love of the game, and in today’s world, that’s a true rarity.

Well, I went to and it was gone. It had been replaced by a bunch of porn links. Surprising, I know. Such a wholesome and universally beneficial site was replaced by a bunch of smut.~~

A fan and his sorrowful lament at then end of a site..

Jessica and Hunter

Crack me up for realziesss, Jessica and Hunter are the personification of ever over tanned, over labeled person in LA. Also their new video is up and its hilarious. Easily made my day. In other news I can finally eat real food after recovering from so long and can't wait to be back in Philly.

Save the pretty art for the Galleries. I want John Isaacs in MY room.

British born artist and creator does things with plastic god himself refused to create. I think for good reason, if we saw some of these creatures walking around I think people would carry around vomit buckets.Not to say that they're not still a work of art, because they are. I'm sure theres a lengthy process to come up with these images which includes Tim Burton films and lsd but he seems to keep it pretty secret. Here are a sampling of his works from the past couple years galleries. He uses graphic imagery to drive home power points across several different mediums blah blah blah dude did you see the gallery of the severed hand? Crazy.
The bio on his website gives a small insight into his dark reality, its nice to see what a cynic really dreams about.
Isaacs’ work seems to suggest that if you scratch at the surface of conventional reality, then a repressed can of worms – a world of ugly and uncomfortable truth – lies just below the thin plastic exterior of our pre-packed modern sanitised world.

Perez Hilton finally goes too far.

Sure every's pissed off about Perez de-glorifying Milk writer Dustin Lance Black,but looks like he finally stepped to far by purposefully calling Black Eyed Peas frontman, Will.I.Am, a fag.

After some crocker like dramatics, he shoots to's video of the situation. All this and the only thing I really noticed was...anybody else notice Perez's receding hair line?

UPDATE: Looks like Perez won't get away with the same ol shit ever since his "Miss California" ordeal. Gay-rights groups are looking for a public apology for using fag as "the worst thing you could call a thug" I mean its not exactly helping the cause now is it? Heres the release.

"Hipster" joins army

Is legit the title of a Huffington Post article about an underground journalist and photographer who joined the marines just for the ultimate ironicosity of joining. The article is filled with mildly racist douchey quotes of his opinions on the other soldiers, the war, and why he joined. Skim and judge at your leisure.

Hipster Joins Marines, Wins Purple Heart In Ultimate Act Of Irony

Cohen noted that it was at this point he realized that while he had "really dug" the "protest scene" back "in the beginning" when American military operations in Iraq began in 2003, rallies had since become overcrowded, and opposition to the war had been absorbed into the mainstream. "The war had become totally passé."

Betty Boop Really was a whore

Having an unlimited amount of free time this past week, and upcoming week, have given me time to find an odd assortment of odd things on the internet. I think i'll post the highlite of the days searching, or whatever is easiest to post, every night.

First off, who knew there was an entire site that hosts old cartoons. Betty Boop really was a city whore. Luv her. Check her out at

Normally they'll only be one but I can't NOT post this up.

Conservative nyc radio host Jay Mundy recently decided to take a trip to Williamsburg because he heard a rumor it was a bit..echem..left. Spoiler alert "weirdos" apparently live there.

GQ interviews Bruno

GQ interview with Bruno "man of the decade" and Australian Fashion photographer on style, class, and how to stay on top

Just imagine how many people worked soley
for this mans naked football induced photo shoot

I hope one day I'm funny enough to have an entire football team (they have to be real, no actors) paid solely for my balls to uncomfortably be displayed in their faces.

Hey, Brüno, I recently started collecting unemployment. Any style tips for someone on a tight budget?
Times are hard, but if you shop around und are prepared to vear some things twice before throwing zem avay, it is
still possible to look good on a clothing budget of about $20,000 a veek. Ich mean, obwiously you vill need a bit more zan zat if you are planning on leaving ze house.

Ronald Kurniawan has advertising in his blood

Ronald Kurniawan is getting some serious bills paid. Why do i know this? Just take a look at his website, if you've ever wondered who is the creative mind behind that new citywide campaign, party, or megacorps marketing campaign (and has enough neon paint to light up the moon) you should probably check out Ronald Kurniawan. Known for his previous work for an air cleaner and beautiful "day of the dead" posters he know buddies up with Folgers coffee to ban Z's everywhere. Adorable and dark Ronald Kurniawan is an artist who can really channel his talent.

If i could sit down to lunch with one person...

For some reason every time my friends and I go into an awkward drinking situation we always try and outdo each other with who can completely harness drinking conversations to their whim. He usually starts out a conversation revolving around "if you could have lunch with one person who would it be" somewhat entertaining with the usual boredoms and shocks of eating with rupaul or watching tv with tina fey. (The only reason i'm posting is to put up this video) Personally I think eating, drinking, or doing anything with Danny Devito would be gold.

Eventually I try and take over the conversation and it somehow leads to whats the most absurd thing we can have a sane conversation about. Last time; "If you had to dedicate your life to exterminating one animal what would it be?"

Jezebel vs. Mr. Cockbib

Heated debate between Jezebelians and Mr. Cockbib got me laughin. First off they don't even attack the dis functionality it holds from the males standpoint. What palty peeen is this guy packing where the cockbib is making cleanup easier? The only thing more ridiculous to look at then a hard on with this wrapped around like a cheap hotel doorknocker is the image of, ugh, a sickly looking post-beej softie. It'd look like a warm put on a ghetto superman costume w/cape. I think actually wearing this out (what, are you gonna slip this on right before a girl goes down?) would prevent your balls from getting messy just due to the lack of poon your ever gonna get.

Good luck, and may god have mercy on your balls.

Vacant: The closest Philly is ever getting to TopShop

Let's be honest, Philly has the music scene on wrap. Without bragging this city has turned some heads and it's usually cause of what's coming out of the 215 (see Elevator Fight post).

Luckily word is we're getting a VACANT STORE possibly as soon as June. If you don't know what Vacant is here's the basics.
They move into a random location in a city.
Open shop without really telling everyone.
Think sample sale of exclusive shoes, tshirts, clothes, and possibly art on the cheap.
Everyone get super hyped and they immediately close down shop about 2 months later.
Everyone cry and wail and search for the next one
So. This is why everyone needs to keep a look out cause the quicker it's found the more time we have. An American Apparel sell in Philly will make ya fight your friends.
In the meantime check out their Philly site or follow them at pr3ttyvacant on twitter. I don't know who runs their shit but it's pretty good. For instance, did you guys know Lily had a straight to hell cover?

Fishtown's Finest

Scrapple tv sits down and chats with fishtown's finest on album reviews. Watch regularly and check out their latest episode where they review bat for lashes and eminem.

I think this might actually be where i get new music from now on. Seriously, there is something to having an older generation review "our generations" music. Not caught in the hype they completely dis animal collective. and i loved it.

A letter to my favorite season

Dear Summer:

I love you, seriously, that whole flippy thing you've been doing with your hair recently, it works. You always get me out of the apartment and your judgemental rays made all of my friends start working out at once. I know your jealous sometimes because I occasionally flirt with spring and I'M SORRY but you really do take the cake, besides, spring is fleeting and I can't keep up with her constant mood swings. That's why i promise to commit the next couple of months to you.

Always yours,
AqwrdmusingsLet's kick this summer off in style with some silk city action this 13th. Of course don't forget that May 9th is slowly approaching and the boys at Fishtown Collective are working hard for a real shit show.

Seacrest Out

On a serious note

"We(me) here at aqwrdmusings want to take time out of our serious programming to take a look at the serious social issues concerning all of us as citizens" The more you know!
Earlier today i twatted all over the place. It was indeed gross, but not for the reasons your thinking of, the video "everyone's talking about" of south philly cops aggressively arresting and abusing artists and fans coming out of the TLA show last night has been twittered, blogged and discussed all day after it's original posting on the internet.

I'm not going to go into full detal because it's pretty been covered through the artists page and other blogs.
The Bamboozle Road Show(April 26 Philly): Bands, Batons, & Blood

There are two points that I wanted to bring up, the first is a simple question of how long is it going to take till actions by the philadelphia police are no longer tolerated? How long is it going to be till "our generation" starts caring enough about the world around us to do something? (hypocritically as i sit eating ice cream on my laptop)

I'm not saying that this incident is that important in the long run, especially compared to other much more poignant incidents by the police but it IS another incident of the ongoing abuse of police power in the city.

The second ( this is a long one) reason i'm bring this up is the fact that by reading the forums i'm even more shocked at how surprised many people are by this footage. People, this happens alot more often then you think. Unfortunately for most black people living in the poorer areas in this city police brutality is a much more real threat then for most of us. The city has had a long history of political corruption and overly aggressive views on policing set up by mayor Frank Rizzo. From the m.o.v.e. bombing to red summer to um..LESS THAN A YEAR AGO "may of overstepped their authority"!?? situations like this are no rarity in the city. It seems almost everyone has a horror story of bigotry and racism from all demographics of the city.

I am curious to see if history will repeat itself. Like many stories during the civil rights movement will harsher punishments be dealt to the officers who barely beat white civilians then those who beat up these African American men earlier this year? Will this be the straw that finally breaks the cities back on their leniancy with the Philadelphia police? probably not.

Satan's single right?

Lame HRO gimmik Satan's Single Right?

Do yall think Satan has a girlfriend? Wonder if he's a committed relationship type of guy? I feel he's looking to "settle down" soon but can't find the right girl/guy/demon ya know? Wonder if he wants kids?
Do you think he's a "cool dad?" Feel like he'd be the kind of guy to let his kids drink in the basement, I mean, he's Satan, whose gonna call him out?

I think satan's just misunderstood ya know? Just a powerful alt-bro looking for good times
Brazilian Girls - "Good Time" (Diplo Remix)

Probably feels like he "doesn't belong" here. Just trying to find his way.

Some time's I wonder if him and the Jeeezz are "frenemies" feel like they probably run in the same social circle right?
It's hard living the ultimate alternative lifestyle. Feel bad for the big guy.

Ebony Bones and Beachballs

Ebony Bones is a perfectly aqwrd girl. Always over the top but never enough she takes performance to a new level. With outfits as dramatic and detailed as her singing her performances look more like amazonian tribal dances. Her new music video "Musik" just popped out recently and it doesn't disappoint.
"i heard she started with a blank myspace and just let the songs do the work"
"I heard her makes her own outfits"
"I heard she used over 30 directors for her new single"
"I heard she produces, sings, and remixes all her own music"

Aqwrd Products

Best thing about growing up an aqwrd kid is that your interests can span all sorts of things. Here at AqwrdMusings (yeah name change we just didn't tell anyone) we enjoy a good lame joke. The lamer the joke the more important it is the louder the laughter should appropriately be. So whats better then a pun right? Ruan Milborrow and Mark Nightingale made these cute pun cards for client Harvey Nichols.
using who knows what and local celebrities. Sorry celebrities but looks like kindergarten is starting all over again.

Sometimes demented is just another word for quirky.

Kokomoo the illustrious illustration artist (nice right?) is almost too weird to touch. You heard it, somethings are just plain odd. Which is what I love about her. She baskes in weird, she takes long hot showers in wierd, sometimes when no one's looking she picks weird out her nose and eats it. Now peep her work. Notice the suttle vortex comign out of her stomach. What's that? swiring whale of a girl whale OUT OF the girls face? oooo aaahhh You can view all her work at

Personally sleeping with someone is the worst.

You know how people seem pretty much perfect from the distance? The whole 10 yards hottie thing is true. Finding out flaws is suuch a turnoff for me. I mean, I have no idea if the man of my dreams clips his toenails on the carpet and I LIKE it that way. Boner killer: guys who have that boa constrictor personality when it comes to sleeping. A little cuddling is one thing, waking up with a death grip on my neck is another. Which is why Amanda Blanks new song has it all wrong. Luckily I can dance to it enough to not really care about sleeping.

Reasons why you shouldn't really buy anything at urban besides skinny jeans

I iz pissed at you! I, Senior Internez, don't like you urban outfitters. I seez the way you sneak around on the online and pass it off az yours. KNOCK IT OFF!

A. Just about every accessory or quirky knik knak can be found online. If you don't have enough time to look around online for things to raise your "maybe she does have a personality" level then maybe you should give up. J.Crew IS right across the street. Here i'll even be nice and show you the site most of their shit is bought from :

For instance suckuk is chockful of stupid stuff that will make your friends think your slightly more interesting. (except the terrorist tea pot. that just rules)
B. Just about any item thats not a basic piece comes from or is stolen off of a designer from Etsy. In case you have no idea what Etsy is i'll fill you. Don't tell anyone about how you just found it though cause just like "discovering" 6 month old music, your ignorance makes you look like a douche. Etsy is basically a website where most upstart artist handmake alot of clothes and goods for mad cheap. I fell in love with the owl messenger bag, see how his cute lil eyes judge you for not knowing about him. adorable:

C. Quality, I mean that real shit, those limited mind blowing toys or shoes that somehow collaborate with Urban can all be found here I sadly won't act like i can afford any of it sigh...oops! the arkitip krink laptop sleeve just made me cream. time to change my pants.

These are the basics guys, it doesn't come even close to covering all you can find. If you find any other sites that fit into this category comment and let me know! Sorry for Senior Internez's ranting, sorry for insulting you guys. I think we all learned a lesson here.

April Fools Day tomorrow

I'm too tired and grumpy to think of an April Fool's Day prank. I think i'll just be a dick tomorrow :}
In my notebook I write down all thoughts I think about when I'm wasted the next morning. I also have a section for reasons I just might possibly go to hell. Just to make whoevers job it is deciding a little easier. I shall now read an excerpt from the spring 09 semester:
"Hey Anne, what were the last two pizza's delivered to the Twin Towers?"
"Robert seriously shut the fuck up"
"Oh come on Anne, I promise it's worth it"
"Robert I'm dead serious shut the fuck up, you know my dad went to war"
"[long pause]two plains"
"your lucky thats really funny dickwad"
Happy April Fools Day!
