The greats are not worthy to walk amongst the living...

Today is the birthday of the late composer/conductor Bernard Hermann (1911). The man was a genious, having composed for such movies as Taxi Driver, Farhenheit 451, Cape Fear, Citizen kane, as well as a number of Hitchcock films.





Billy Mays passed yesterday. I have to admit that I'm going to miss seeing him advertise all of those useless products. There aren't many good sellers out there, but at least the Shamwow/Slapchop guy is amusing. They say Mays was found unresponsive in his Tampa home, but the cause is still not clear. His wife say he was complaining about a hit on the head he got when his plane was acting shaky. I only hope it wasn't the same thing that Natasha Richardson died of.



I met up with some friends yesterday and saw Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen. I love the Transformers movies.



This skirt is so flowy. Although my father rather disliked it, saying "It's good to have your own style, but that skirt is a little ridiculous." Oh well...







These are the flats I wore today. I love plaid!

Loove your skirt and those plaid shoes! Haha, and I actually first looked up Bernard Hermann's work specifically because of his collaborations with Hitchcock :)

Dads are crazy, mine says things like that all the time. One day he was shocked when I wore a dress to school ("Why are you getting all dressed up for no reason?!") Sigh. :P
Seriously, the skirt is lovely :)
