Oh Vanity Fair....

November 3, 2009

....how I love thee. :) I don't really purchase or subscribe to any magazines any more, but thank goodness for the internet. What a beautiful cover. And just for a little more pure eye candy...here is an outtake from the same VF shoot. Oh to be the one behind that camera. Something I could totally get used to. Can I apply to be Robert Pattinson's personal photographer? I promise to do a REALLY great job! Tee hee!
And the verdict is in on my favorite song off the New Moon soundtrack! Of course, I love the main song, "Meet Me On The Equinox" by Death Cab For Cuties. But, I always prefer to find a favorite on the album that ISN'T being played all over the radio and television and internet. So, my favorite on the album is called "Possibility" by Lykke Li. The Twilight series lovers all know that this book is all about heartbreak and heartache. I don't think this song could capture that any more perfectly. There is a part of the song that goes, "So tell me when you hear my heart stop. You're the only one that knows. Tell me when you hear my silence. There's a possibility I wouldn't know." I think if you have suffered deep heartache in your life, you totally get those lyrics. Anyways...do you want to hear it? Here is a Youtube video of it...listen to it fast- it probably won't be up for long!

Okay- now onto some crafting stuff. So- I am totally LAME, and didn't get my cute Halloween cards photographed until today. I know, I know. I am SO lame...I totally admit it. But, I don't want to not share them, so here they are.
