I am OBSESSED with this song right now, I can’t even explain why. I wouldn’t think her musical style would be my type (even though my taste is so varied), but something about this really, really touches me. I had no idea I liked her so much! Tingles.
It’s time. It really is. I’m really thinking that I need to blog in a more responsible way. I do really like tumblr, ya know. So, where to start. Quick little update about what’s been goin’ on. I passed the CA Bar Exam, woohoo! Getting sworn in this Thursday and I will officially be an attorney. So incredible to have finally reached this point.
Now, the studying fun isn’t over yet. I’ll be taking the NY Bar in February, want to cover all of my bases since I really see myself living there at some point in the future. Fashion and art law are obviously big in The City, so it’s a pretty viable option.
Other than that, really loving the job I have right now. I’m doing all kinds of plaintiff’s work, since I really wanted litigation experience. Specifically, I’m going to trial all the time, and it’s so much fun. We did a huge five week case in October, and last week picked our jury for the current case we’re doing. Tomorrow is opening, it’s a legal malpractice case with underlying fashion law claims, so it’s right up my alley.
Anyway, this is just a hi, hello, yes-I’m-still-breathing post. I’m going to have more interesting content soon, and in the mean time will start with the picture posting, vids, musica, etc.
"Missing Amy Winehouse" by Eli Valley. Click on the photo from my page for the larger version.
This cartoon is so on the nose. “Truth is, maybe we’ve all been projecting a bit.” Well… that’s what happens. We connect to someone’s words, music, style, the twinkle in their eye and paparazzi vids of them… but we don’t know ‘em. We think we do though, and I guess that’s enough…. maybe we find a part of ourselves in them and that’s what counts.
This is amazing. And Mother Russia, representin.

So, my tumblr has apparently become a partial outlet for all my Amy Winehouse feelings. That should change though. It was necessary to be a little off the grid post-Bar, but now I’m itching to reorient and get myself back into the real world.
I graduated! Took the Bar! My days as a law student are over!
I’m not sure if I’ll ever post on here like I used to on my livejournal. That was good for pondering Life and Humanity, but I like the idea of more variety in content. Okay, I’ll get this together. Fashion and art law, comin’ up.
The Fashion Blawg, work in progress.
P.S. I still miss Amy though. There was comfort in knowing that such a soulful, unique person existed in this world.
Dying old or never meeting Tony Bennett; if I never get to meet him, I might as well be dead.
Today would have been the 28th birthday of The late Great Amy Winehouse.
The Amy winehouse Foundation has been launched; a charity set up to merge performing arts scholarships with addiction treatment, for young people who are vulnerable and underprivileged.
The proceeds of Body and soul, her last recording, a duet sung with Jazz Icon Tony Bennett, will also be donated to the charity, which is also funded by public donations and other charities.
The Video (released today) will be screened first, at 8.00am exclusively on GMTV. And the Ken Bruce show will play the CD first on BBC Radio 2.
R.I.P Amy…A Reality, Creative Genius and True Musician. Gone, but never forgotten.
i’m inspired by the things in life that are funny, you know? or the nice things in the bad situations or the little horrible bits in the nice situations…i wouldn’t say it’s irony; i’d say i like bittersweet things.
I love this, captures her completely (so sweetly). I miss her a lot, I know I’m not the only one. Tumblr is comforting that way. Maybe when I finally can wrap my head around it all I’ll put my fingertips to keys and see what I can do.
She had such a good voice.
Um, pretty much amazing. LESS THAN 24 HOURS TO GO TILL BAR TIME :)
At least I’m still learning when I procrastinate …
