BELLY

NAS DMX BELLYEvery once in a while, I have to dip myself in 90′s nostalgia and tonight was a full Belly night.  I have probably seen Belly 20 times and I never get tired of it.  I wouldn’t describe the acting as quality.  I mean Nas and DMX aren’t really Oscar contenders.  This directorial debut by Hype Williams definitely feels like a 90 minute music video, but really what is so bad about that?

BELLY BWIn case you need convincing, here are three good reasons to watch Belly.DROP A DIME1) T-Boz is in it.T BOZ BELLYTommy’s not gonna be shit but what he is

2) There is a totally incomprehensible Jamaican drug lord named Ox who has a giant bowl of herb on his coffee table.

Chelsea Girls

Hear this ya’ll, I’m having a new favorite lip moment: Nars Lip Lacquer in Chelsea Girls. I confess I find pinks hard to wear.  Soft pinks tend to create an optical illusion of yellow teeth.  Too matte can be aging.  Even though pink seems like a low maintenance look, it can be rife with challenges. This pink is perfect.  Not too baby, not too nude, not too salmon.  The consistency upon first application is a skosh sticky, but as the product warms to body temperature it begins to luxuriously penetrate the lip with moisture without color fade.  Another can’t-live-without cult product from Nars.  Lip Love. 

GOONIES NEVER SAY DIE!

Today was spent in humble reverence to one of the most formative films of my childhood: The Goonies.  I got to see Mikey’s house in the flesh ya’ll!  More than 20 years later, the path up to the home is well-tread.  The friendly owners let you walk directly up to the hallmark of 80′s nostalgia and take photos.  No Truffle Shuffle required for entry.  Also located in Astoria, check out the Clatsop County Jail which Goonies fans may remember from the opening scene of the 1985 classic.  The former jail now serves as the Oregon Film Museum. Even if these other two locales have been buried deep under years of accumulated subconscious pop culture history, surely you remember Goonies’ big finish filmed at Haystack Rock?  This iconic monument lives right off the coast of lovely Cannon Beach.  Visit gorgeous Ecola State Park for access to sweeping views of Haystock Rock and all its rock formation friends + orange and purple starfish and turquoise sea anemone too.
