Dear Project Runway Season 8,
Why is it only Episode 3 and my favourite model has already been eliminated!?!?! In remembrance, I wanted to feature her here on Lola Re.
Her name is Julia Rodriguez, and she's a Mexican model of African descent. I think it's cool to think there are women of colour from all around the African Diaspora (especially since a branch of my mom's family apparently went to Mexico). Here are some of my favourite photos:
Bella! She'll be featured in next month's American Elle I believe, so keep an eye out for that.
This post's post-apocalyptic title is also the title of one of my favourite bands, (and not just because I'm friends with the members). It's called Tacoma Narrows Bridge Disaster, and they do atmospheric, instrumental, progressive rock that makes "movies in your mind." Their music kind of reminds me of the first 10 mins of 28 Days Later. So, here's a clip of them playing a song called 'Calligraphy,' followed by a short interview with the band.
If you like what you hear, and you're in London, they're playing a gig at Old Street on August 27th 2010 (Bank Holiday weekend). More info on their Facebook Page.
