The thing that I am noticing most about this season is how much model and designer are becoming intertwined. Matar and Eperson and Christopher and Katie are both winning combinations. Like an artist needs their muse so does a designer need the spirit and personality of his model to bring out that little extra. The 'story' was a crucial element in this week's design challenge and a girl that could sell the story made the outfit a winner. Whomever decided that 'Models of the Runway' would be a perfect companion to 'Project Runway' earned their pay for the year. THIS was what I have been missing all along and I didn't even know it. I am liking that I am viewing the models as more than just coat racks though I still want to feed them buckets of KFC because we know that Big Daddy loves a curvy woman. Now I am worried that my favorite designers will loose their girl. They shouldn't get to pick randomly. It should be based on scores so that some wannabe poacher doesn't get the best model. It would be motivation for the designers to keep upping their game.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
