as you know i heart keeeerstin dunst more than life itself

no one understands this. not even the chinese bootlegger who sold me all those second rate marie antoinette post cards (who i later gave a Neutral review cuz the quality was so piss poor – which didnt stop me from hanging every one on my walls at the crib)

so here we have keeersten dressed up like a backup dancer for gwen stefani singing one of the worst tunes from the 80s.

but who cares? look at those dimples. look at those teeth. check out those eyes.

tell me they dont make you melt.

and all through the lens of my man murakami?

ahhh kirsten. bring it on baby.

its been broughten.

omg leah just adopted a snowman!

i mean a baby

i mean a rockstar husband.

no A DOG! she rescued a dog!!!!

there are many things that i look forward to SXSW in march,

one is seeing my friends dan and sara who always jet out from DC to make it out to the fest… this time, hopefully with their little bundle of joy

the other is seeing the 1,500 bands and all the movers and shakers of the interweb industry

but maybe the best part of the trip is seeing leah and her husband taylor and his great band Quiet Company.

and now they have two new members of their family: a cute lil baby, and now a happy dog!

march cant come soon enough.

promise, america, that you’ll meet me there.
