FUCK YEAH! I finally got this Nike SB backpack I've wanted for so long (i mentioned it here as well) they were only stocked in like two skateboard shops in tokyo and I'm soo excited. It's a bit big for a little person like me but I'll manage. Can't wait to pair it with dresses and I'm definitely gonna use it for my next backpacking trip abroad. Nike SB made some really great backpacks this season, I liked the elephant leather print ones too.

It seems summer's over already. I'm currently in the countryside visiting my grandparents and the breeze here is cool and smells like fall. I'm sitting by the window in my ADD hoodie feeling kind of sad, kind of nice. Perfect time for listening to Nick Drake's River Man.

I just saw a documentary about the Japanese animation artist and dirctor Hayao Miyazaki. Bits and pieces of it made me cry because I kept realizing how much of a genius he is. I dunno, there's something so beautiful about people who are able to find their true calling and give it their all. An especially memorable part was when he talked about how a little American girl told him that she thought Spirited Away's Chihiro was very cool, and that it was such comments he got from kids that made his work worthwhile in the end.
In between interviews there was a quick filmography and it literally gave me goosebumps to think that all those masterpieces like My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki's Delivery Service, Laputa, Princess Mononoke and Nausicaa came from the mind of this one man alone.
His last movie is out in the theaters right now. It's about a little fish that wants to become a human girl. I'm excited to see it but at the same time I'm sort of devastated that this is the end. I'm really going to miss Mr. Miyazaki's work.

The trip was an incredible experience. Haven't managed to sort it all out in my head yet but it was completely worth it, that I know for sure.
Anyway here's Rick Owens peeing into the mouth of Rick Owens from his book L'Ai Je Bien Descendu (named in honor of his favorite Parisian cabaret dancer... so bizarre)
