Rolls Royce, friendly hipsters, BJ Panda does Africa (for real), Bardot, chance encounters, bootleg margaritas and blatant lies at the second window... and it's only the first night...

Anyone care to caption any of these photos? I'd be super intrigued to find out what they would say, haha!

I found this short, claymation horror film through my friend, the lovely Scout Taylor-Compton.  I love that this is the kind of thing she watches in the morning - such a scream queen, haha!

Be sure to check it out, and don't forget to check back on Monday and see my interview with Scout on the 1st episode of The Michael Shirley Show!

Donna C. Retires

Michael Shirley Jul 13, 2010

Last Friday, Torry Castellano, the drummer for one of my favorite bands, The Donnas, retired from her position as Donna C.  

The unfortunate departure is due to an on-going struggle Torry has been having with her arm.  Often, you would see pictures of Torry wearing some sort of arm or wrist brace when playing, so although it is a shock - it isn't that surprising.  

In memory of the many awesome shows I've seen Torry and The Donnas play, and the countless amount of times I've heard her sticks beat a drum, I put together this gallery of The Donnas over the past 15 or so years.

What is your favorite Donnas song?  Mine is 'Rock N Roll Machine'.

Blitzkrieg Bopper style

This is such an easy look to put together. All you need is a girlfriend (undersized) biker jacket, skinny jeans, one piece of jewelry and a black and white punk tee. Have fun with the shoes you choose. It seems like anything goes right now.

I put this outfit together with a pair of skinny jeans I got from a thrift store, my Jean Paul Gaultier moto jacket, a pyramid studded ring, and the coolest Dandy Warhols shirt ever printed - sure they're not punk, but it's totally a rip-off of an old Clash shirt.  It's so clever and comfy.  I think I wore my pyramid studded flip-flops from Walmart, too, that day.

I felt just like a Ramone.

If you could go back in time and hang out with one dead rocker for a day - who would it be? I'd pick Janis.

I'm obsessed with Burberry's spring 2011 line.  I want everything!

The theme seems to be mod meets punk business professional.  Here are my top 10 favorite looks from the collection:


I feel like this collection embraces the best parts of the early '80s. 

What do you think about punk spikes and studs making their way into couture?
