glory of the night

i don’t usually pay that much attention to lyrics. i’m much more about the beat. i really love this song…it fits my beat criteria so i’ve liked it for a while but only somewhat recently noticed how beautiful the lyrics are. i wasn’t able to find the lyrics online so i’m posting them in case anyone is ever looking for it like i was. and apparently i really like music on maison kitsune.

Every other night I see your smile, every other night I feel your touch

Every other night I see your smile, every other night I…

 

Every other night I see your smile, every other night I feel your touch

Every other night I…, oh, ever other night I…

 

In my dreams I see you standing there, standing right in front of me

Looking at the past, bring it all back, bring it all

 

In my dreams I see you standing there, standing right in front of me

Looking at the past, bring it all back, bring it…

 

Glory of the night, glory of the night, glory of my time, glory of the night

Glory of the night, glory of the night, glory of my time, glory of the night

 

In my dreams I see you standing there, standing right in front of me

Looking at the past, bring it all back, bring it all

 

In my dreams I see you standing there, standing right in front of me

Looking at the past, bring it all back, bring it back

 

And I’ll wait for you, as you wait for me

We’ll find ourselves in passing in a dream

 

I’ll wait for you, as you wait for me

We’ll find ourselves in passing in a dream

 

In my dreams I see you standing there, standing right in front of me

Looking at the past, bring it all back, bring it all back

 

In my dreams I see you standing there, standing right in front of me

Looking at the past, bring it all back, bring it back

daft fashion

daft punk is quite fashionable now. i don’t just mean in the sense  that everyone’s hopping on the band wagon, but literally fashionable. with their last 2 outfits designed by hedi slimane of saint laurent, actually appearing on the saint laurent site, to these videos below.

the first was created for the 2013 cfda awards to show the nominees for “menswear designer of the year”–thom browne, michael bastian, and duckie brown; thom browne was the winner.  these male models are singing the lyrics to daft punk’s first single off random access memories “get lucky”.

then earlier today, the robotic duo was spotted in manhattan’s midtown (don’t even get me started on how upset i am that i’m not in town for that) shooting a video with someone who looks a lot like famous model karlie kloss.

daft punk, midtown, karlie kloss

daft punk, midtown, manhattan

watch the very brief video of this on vine.

random access memories

as the entire internet is abuzz about, daft punk’s new album “random access memories” is dropping may 21. i’m so excited…my favorite band with a disco sound and their new outfits are fittingly all sequinned out courtesy of hedi slimane of saint laurent.  there’s so much anticipation and i love that they’re going back to disco amidst all this freaking edm hype.  watching the collaborators videos about making the album is pretty inspiring too.

i can already tell i’m going to love this album from what’s been teasingly released so far…i mean it’s disco!  and “get lucky” features one of my celebrity crushes, pharrell.  it’s serendipitous that it’s been released on my birthday.  so of course i already pre-ordered it.

i’ve had some great things coincide with my birthday in the past…sun god festival (the only day that ucsd becomes a party school) and shrek 2 (yes, shrek).

this year is the first time i’ll experience having my birthday with final exams and actually have an operations quiz that day. i’d been wanting to a disco theme, and actually even go to a disco, for my birthday but thought nobody would really be into it. but i think daft punk will make things so much easier and actually get people to start liking disco too i think.

i die!

i was eating with friends and staring blankly at the tv screen as linsanity reached the lakers.  as the game breaked for a commercial, i saw the back of his head and the words “adrien brody!” came sputtering out of my mouth along with pizza bits.

for me, what could be better than a stylish adrien brody starring in a commercial?  well, if he used the razor to shave off all his facial hair for one thing.  but no, that’s not what i meant–andre 3000!  a commercial featuring 3 stylish men and 2 of them are my heartthrobs??  #idie!!!  gael’s not bad either, haha.

 

um, one of my favorite commercials now?  OH YES.

ok, i haven’t watched these videos of them talking about style yet but you can bet your ass that i will!

 

 

 

#endswooning

one of my favorite bands ever

and one of the most fun shows i’ve ever been too…miss them.

stay hungry, stay foolish: remembering steve + michael

steve jobs
1955 – 2011

john lasseter + steve jobs

why?
because he valued design and aesthetics as much as function and performance
because he constantly strove to be the best–even until the end. i don’t think it’s a coincidence he died only a day after the iphone 4s was released. he was in it until the end.
because of his creativity and innovation
because i don’t think pixar would be here today if it wasn’t for him
because of his charisma and his ability to inspire others
because he was a regular guy

an oldie but goodie:

michael jackson
1958 – 2009

why?
because he’s the moon walker
because of his compassion and empathy
because he was also a perfectionist
because he felt lonely
because he truly loved his fans
because i abandoned him

why thrill billie jean when you can be a smooth criminal?

because…they left us too soon…were game-changers, no–world-changers…there will never be anyone else like them
rest in peace
i will miss you both, always

thomas bangalter does fashion

the cooler half of daft punk, thomas bangalter, directed a short film for luxury fashion brand co starring his wife elodie bouchez for their spring/summer 2012 collection.

daft punk is no stranger to directing as they released a full length film called electroma before.  they should stick to making music…not that this one was bad.

on repeat
