Mad Men Just Isn't the Same in Berlin

After scouring the Internet I finally found a website that allowed us people in Europe to enjoy the fruits of American television and dowloaded the Season 3 premiere of my fave Mad Men. It definitely satisfied my long overdue craving for Dick's exploits, Betty's blasé parenting skills and the usual office drama, but I will say that my little German computer did not allow it full justice. The bad picture streamed off the Internet almost felt like it took away one of the great characters, the vibrant color and cinematic feel of the show. But whatever, I'm in Europe, it's worth it. Check out these Sally Draper cocktail place mats and Joan Holloway paper dolls that I found on Cupcake Diaries. Amazing.

The Most Stylish Men of the Last 50 Years

I will admit that I love a man who has got some style. I mean, too much time spent in front of the mirror is certainly a turn off - but a guy who can casually throw an outfit together and look effortlessly cool, gets me every time. Check out GQ's 50 Most Stylish Men, they did such a good job selecting these style gurus that I hard time narrowing down my faves. Here's the best I could do:
Steve McQueen

Kurt Cobain

Jack Nicholson

Elvis Presley

Paul Newman

Miles Davis

Mick Jagger and Keith Richards

Oh Devendra...

How do you feel about this Devendra Banhart at a summer Philip Lim Party? I am torn about seeing him in hot pink shoes at a fashion party but at the same time he pulls the look off with quirky irony. I can't decide how I feel. And are those really sweatpants?

The Days Aren't so Bad Either...

Pool in the river on Friday, the park on Saturday, the lakes on Sunday. Should have taken more pictures on Sat and Sunday (at least before it was too dark, no photoshop here sorry) but I was too busy swimming, napping, laughing and learning new German words like 'dog food' and 'totally.'

Update: My bro's better pics from Sunday at the lake.

Pretty Young Thing

The building is painted in bright colors and a large courtyard behind the building holds several sculptures erected using rubble, debris, vehicles and other objects. There was an appreciable amount of disagreement among the East German and West German artists due to their conflicting views and concepts for the space. In the meantime, however, Tacheles has become a central part of the art, activist, exhibition and communication scenes in Berlin, and is officially registered as Tacheles, e. V.. In 1996 and 1997, politicians, sociologists, architects, and artists discussed the preservation and future use of the complex at Metropolis Berlin, Hochgeschwindigkeitsarchitektur...


Berlin's Newest Rock Star

My bro finds his true calling and I find mine: documenting Michael's Berlin antics one day at a time. Stay tuned, there is certainly more.

The Sartorialist's Kid


An eye for style obviously runs in the family, but when is too young to have to care about fashion other than anything that involves pink tutus and clashing bright colors? Check out more pics here.

Random Sunday Game

It's called Chinese ping pong and we played (well I only tried once due to nerves) it in the park today with a crew of all ages. You get it, you just keep taking turns going from one side to the other and you're out if you mess up. Apparently there is a bar here where they play this with hundreds of people. I had a hard enough time containing my excitement about all the ping pong tables in the park, and now this!


Went on a date and walked with him along the Berlin Wall...honestly never thought I would say that.
