Too July For You: Our Fave Posts From the Past Month
+ Feeling down in the dumps, discouraged, directionless, dejected? Like a cake shop without any cakes, like a cornflakes box without any flakes, like a little orphan girl who's been neglected? Probably the best way to make life good again is to read The Laura Jane Guide to "Anti-Accessorizing," aka the first edition of nogoodforme's new "HOW TO LIVE" column. You'll not only learn how to be more crackerjack at achieving those kinda cloud-nine "days your Kinks song matches your shoes"; you'll also get dozens and dozens of dozens of sentences so gorgeously brain-melting, they're sure to put that pep in your step and glide in your stride. While you're at it, read HOW TO DRESS YOURSELF: Laura Jane's Guide to Stoner Girl Chic for lots more life advice rolled up in one big sexy, scrappy joint.
+ Before nogoodforme.com was a Heidi Montag/Spencer Pratt hate blog, a remarkably intense Beatles fansite, an ironic Brody Jenner worship blog, and/or, um, a Starbucks drink review blog, it was a "fashion blog." This month, Kat brought us back to our roots with The nogoodforme Guide to Red Lipstick, which was as delicious, elegant and girlsy-swirlsy as a pouty crimson smacker itself.
+ Once upon a time in a kingdom faraway, Liz wrote a brillsville zine called Deliciosa -- see why that name is so fitting at the nogoodforme Summer Tea Party installment of Yum, where super-deelish Gin-A-Loupe Coolers and a mind-bogglingly awesome array of sandwiches are served, complete with food-porno worthy pics that would make Gwynnie "GOOP" Paltrow blow out her digestive system in envy.
+ Further proof that LJ & Barker are the Lennon & McCartney of 2009: This July, both Laura and Liz reviewed I'm Going Away by the Fiery Furnaces. Liz penned a cheerful, peach-related ode to the simple joys of eating seasonal fruit, and dancing. It was the "Ob-la-di, Ob-la-da" of this July. Laura Jane, who most likely likes I'm Going Away a hell of a lot more than Liz does, wrote a slack, snide anti-review focused primarily on slamming the creative efforts of a writer she deems inferior to herself. Ouch! It's a grand thing we've got Kat "The Dark Horse" Asharya to balance shit out!
+ LJ fucks up a Cinnabon, confronts anorexia and lays down some legit honesty about the whole eating disorder thing in the latest Laura Jane Investigates. Smart, true, candid, beautiful -- the old cliche of truth being beauty and beauty being truth gets reinvented all the time, mostly 'cause we need it in a world that can make beautiful girls feel so horrid inside. ALSO: can someone get LJ her own talk show? Seriously, if Alexa Chung can do it, SO CAN LJ.
+ Nogoodforme's prettiest piece of eye candy this month comes in the form of Kat's Blink of an Eye entry on Tim Walker, whose lovely photos of lovely ladies in lovely dresses make us go so swoony. If this post were sweets for realz, it would totally be a satin-ribbon-tied box of cassis petits fours, and never the boring sugar of Skittles or Starburst.
+ At nogoodforme, we like to go to the dark places where no one else dare venture to go: Satanicism (which is the nogoodforme version of Satanism), relentless fashion goth commitments, reading L.A. Candy. Michiko Kakutani has nothing on LJ and Liz, who take down Lauren Conrad's epic epistle with wit, vengeance and aplomb.
+ We know you've probably spent the last week slumping around in the junkiest funk, bemoaning the fact that you'll maybe never have another cinematic experience even half as wondrous as G-Force in 3-D - but rest assured! The inaugural installment of nogoodforme's newest column KAT ATTACK! gives us the skinny on a buncha way exciting movies hitting the theaters in the not-too-distant future, including that Runaways biopic that's weirdly starring Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie.
+ You know why nogoodforme.com is awesome? Because we are impenetrable, but also, totally relatable! Who doesn't love and hate things? Barker and LJ sure do! If it's not one thing ("like crack"; "why ears are handle-shaped"), it's definitely the other (ogling babes; throwing Big Gulps at peoples' heads). Official Life Concept of July 2009= BALANCE.
