This is actually artist Jorge Columbo‘s second cover for the New Yorker but as someone who has a weak spot for skylines and the Chrysler building, this one is my favorite.  I still can’t believe this was created on an iphone. Below is a link to the New Yorker website that has videos of him completing the works on his phone.  It’s pretty neat.

  1. Wait, huh?
  2. I don’t follow him on Twitter.  Do I have to now?
  3. What?
  4. Why?

One More Reason to Love Taylor Swift

So let’s see.  America’s newest sweetheart hosted the best episode of SNL this season last night, she’s one of my favorite dressed celebrities, she has a cute new boyfriend and she’s a triple-platinum recording artist. BUT. Why am I loving her even more now?

Well, Her self-titled album first released in 2006 has been on Billboard’s Top 200 albums chart for 157 weeks, which is a feat in it of itself, yet what makes it especially notable is that it has finally booted Nickelback from that spot. Nickelback. Seriously, America? Come on.

So, thank you Taylor, for erasing that blemish in music history with your kickass album.  Now, go write some songs about being in love with Taylor Lautner and set more records.

Ps. Your monologue was my favorite to date.

This is from the Vanity Fair shoot for the December issue.  All of the pictures are just perfect: slight preppiness, scruff, disheveled hair, being British…Swoon.  Normally I don’t do a detailed daily crush post, but since Vanity Fair shot these, they’re really great–the coloring, lighting, angles, SUBJECT, etc.  Ok, I sound like a creeper.  Whatever. It happens. The rest are after the jump.  Enjoy.

Dakota Fanning: award winning actress in multi-million dollar movies, cheerleader, homecoming queen, once an awkward looking child but is now really cute and is in a movie with Robert Pattinson.  If she didn’t seem like such a normal girl in a town full of crazies I would hate her so much.  So instead, I’m just super jealous.

Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner being young and good looking on the town. Is he old enough to drive? Does it matter?

We’re not sure why we were even holding out for so long.  We were on board while they were filming the only redeeming romcom coming out next year.  But, let’s get real. How cute are they together?  People even confirmed that they’re a couple!  Hooray!

Now, they need to stay together long enough so Swift can write an amazing love-gushed record, which will go platinum.  And if he breaks her heart, then she’ll write a break up album…which will also go platinum.  Girlfriend’s got material to last a lifetime.  Anyway, I really hope these two love birds make it. Not only are the aesthetically pleasing, but they both seem like nice people.  This blog is rooting for you!
