Whitest Girl You Know

Translucent ruminations of a very pale girl.

Wednesday, June 13, 2007


Billy Rohan is a fucking genius. He's a friend from a former life of mine (circa 2005) and although I haven't spoken to him for quite some time now, I have to hand it to the man for stirring up some laughter. I went to lunch with Adam G recently and demanded that I find this video as soon as I got to a computer. It's slow in the beginning but genius.

A quick background - Billy and some friends go to the Potfest (or whatever it's called) in Washington Sq with a bullhorn. You'll have to watch to see what happens. BTW, the name of the clip is "Assholeeee".

P.S. to all the haters - Billy does NOT drink or do drugs. A lot of the comments that I've read on youtube accusse him of doing such things. Not that he needs anyone's defense, but the kid has enough going on inside his head that he knows to stay away from illicit chemicals and such. Trust me on this...

P.P.S. I'm really proud of myself that I figured out how to embed a video on this!

I Gave In...

Originally spotted at Co-op on Wooster...4 stores later, not another in sight and I thought it wasn't meant to be. But alas, I tracked it down on the interweb and it will soon be mine! Shopping on the web scares me but I can't stop thinking about how f-ing cute I'm going to look in this for a wedding we're going to in Palm Springs.

Achilles is Coming!

Here's a look at the boys' second mention (first with their names!) about the store. There's apparently a write-up in the Improper as well but we always get that 2 weeks after the fact because we're the only people in town who actually subscribe. The first paragraph ran in the Globe yesterday (right next to a mention about Dinosaur Jr. - they're in good company). This is from universalhub.com:

Famed Newton Chef to take on Boston Eatery

Acclaimed chef Michael Leviton has signed on to helm the kitchen at Fort Point Channel's new, innovative restaurant/retail concept, Achilles, scheduled to open in October. Leviton will partner with Achilles' owners Michael Krupp and Shaka Ramsay to create a menu which will feature small- to mid-sized plates made with sustainable local ingredients where possible, and designed to represent "simplicity and harmony with each passing season." Best known for his Newton, MA restaurant, Lumière, Leviton will veer from the French cuisine for which he's known as he creates an American inspired menu for his first restaurant venture within the Boston city limits.

Since opening Lumière in 1999 Chef Leviton has received numerous accolades for his culinary acumen, including Food & Wine "Best New Chef in America" in 2000, Bon Appetit "Best New Restaurant" in 1999, Gourmet "Best Restaurant in America" in 2002, and numerous "Best of" Awards from Boston magazine. For the past three consecutive years, Chef Leviton has received awards from Distinguished Restaurants of North America (DiRoNA) and nominations for "Best Chef, Northeast", from the venerable James Beard Foundation.

A full-service restaurant and lifestyle boutique in one, Achilles will be a unique addition to the Boston landscape. The retail division of Achilles will feature exclusive and limited-run products from competitive- to high-price point fashion lines for men and women, as well as previously unreleased collections from a wide variety of designers and artists. In addition, Achilles will be a culinary destination, featuring a menu presented with simple elegance. Chef Leviton's choices will showcase the freshest local ingredients and seasonal items, with a focus on regional flavors and a commitment to sustainable foods. Achilles will be one of the first restaurants/retailers to move into Boston's up-and-coming Fort Point Channel neighborhood.
