You're Giving Me An Art Attack

While I normally write shorter posts on the weekends, today's Sunday post will be especially short. Besides the fact that there isn't much news going on today, I'm still very much enjoying my Parisian holiday. Instead of writing this post first thing in the morning, I opted to sleep in a bit, venture out to enjoy the day and then write the day's post in the evening (it's about 10:30PM here right now). I'm a bit tired but let's get to it.

Victoria Beckham's boobs continue to unleash their reign of terror on the poor, unsuspecting people of New York City as Fashion Week rages on. Here are a few photos of Mrs. Beckham and her protruding bulbs of silicone as she mills about outside the very selective club Bungalow 8:

I can't think of a more horrifying sight than that of this particular pair of plastic monstrosities coming after me in the dead of the night. [Source]

Actually, I think I spoke too soon ... the prospect of this coming after me in the dead of the night is absolutely more terrifying a thought:

Gah! I'll take Posh's scary boobies over Kimberly Stewart any day! [Source]

Paris Hilton is up to her old tricks on the set of her new music video Nothing in this World ... which is, apparently, an homage to the Elisha Cuthbert movie The Girl Next Door. Here are some photos from the video:

I love how Paris Hilton has no qualms at all about getting semi naked and trying to be ubersexy in front of the video cameras (and with a kid, no less). Well ... this behavior is how she skyrocketed to fame in the first place. Work it girl ... play to your strengths! [Source]

Pink reader Brandon was lucky enough to attend the Banksy art exhibit that is being held this weekend in Los Angeles yesterday afternoon. Here are a few photos, sent in by Brandon via a link from the blog Supertouch, of the art show:

I have to admit, I was previously unaware of Banksy's work before hearing about his little stunt on Paris Hilton in the UK earlier this month but I have quickly become a fan. The artwork is insanely creative, definitely subversive and yet still manages to remain (for the most part) tasteful and not overly graphic. I'm completely fascinated by how imaginative each piece is. I would love to see this stuff in person ... either on the street or in an exhibition. I cannot tell you how much it pains me that I'm missing out on the LA exhibit. Head on over to Supertouch to check out more photos from the show. There's some amazingly fun stuff to see. [Source]

It's that time of the week again ... time to check out the Hot Dude of the Week ... say hello to Jesse:

Some of you very observant readers may recall seeing pictures of Jesse featured as the hot dude on the blog before, but it can't hurt to take another gander, can it? Call me crazy, but there's just something about a squatting shirtless dude that speaks to me. Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of hot dudes here in beautiful Paris, France but I still have a bit of my heart reserved for the good All American Guys back home. [Source]

And finally, can you guess who is the proud owner of this pair of thong undies?

Click above to find out who it is

The platform high heels and gaudy print blouse might be a bit of a clue. I do warn you, tho, you may not want to know who the undies belong to ... I'm not sure quite how I feel about this particular woman wearing nothing but her thong underwear. [Source]

Les News:
Yesterday was a nice full day for David and me. We made our way to Montmarte to spend the day hanging out on the hill (or la butte as the locals call it) enjoying the most amazing views of the whole city of Paris. As soon as we arrived, we plunked down for a ravishing Italian dinner at a really cute little restaurant. The owner was so incredibly sweet to us. Thus far, it's been the best meal we've had on this trip so far. After lunch, we visited Sacre Coeur and climbed all the way to the top of the dome of the church to get a full 360 degree view of all of Paris. It is an understatement to say it was simply stunning. I honestly did not want to come back down ... we stayed up in the dome for quite some time ... it was magnificent:

But, we eventually had to climb back down and return to Earth. We spent the rest of the afternoon shopping at the various shops in Montmarte picking up a few things here and there. Unfortch, we were not able to make it to the cemetery before having to return to our hotel. We did get to see the Moulin Rouge (which was not as impressive as I thought it would be from the outside).

Last night, David and I started out the night having a couple of beers at a local bar near our hotel. We visited this particular bar a few days earlier and made friends with the waiter (pictured above). He affectionately called us "his Americans" and kept giving us free food to go with our drinks. After drinks, we made our way to a club called La Scene for the Eyes Need Sugar party. We had a great time for the most part ... but we were so tired from our long day that we really didn't do much dancing. After an interesting cab ride home we crashed like a couple of mofos and slept in pretty late this morning.

Today was spent at the Musee d'Orsey and tonight we're planning on hitting up a club called Le Queen ... but those deets will come tomorrow.

Tonight is the end of our only full weekend here in Paris (as we leave for home next Saturday) so we're trying to make the most of it. OY! We have to change hotels tomorrow so ... it should be an interesting day. I hope y'all have had a great weekend ... apologies again for the short post.

I'm out!
