This Spanish/Portuguese beauty born and raised in the O.C. is into designing clothes, modeling and more than modeling. With a distinct sense of style, humor and this bangsy/lip-biting thing going on that’sa nice, she’s got my vote.
Oh and um, don’t read too much into the watermark, heh..
I don’t usually get t-shirts online (except for the “- i pwn n00bs -” shirt I just bought off Pure Pwnage), but this is realllllly tempting. Also, Threadless designs are pretty sweet and I need a new hoodie.
The VT shooting is ringing out all across the web / social networking sites, and probably will be for quite some time. Here are some select links that I thought were particularly interesting and/or telling. Oh, and I’m frequently updating these links for some reason.

Joshua Bell, a world-renowned violinist, pulls out his $3.5 million instrument for an unexpected audience: the 8am rush hour travelers at the L’Enfant Plaza subway station in Washington D.C.
His performance was arranged by The Washington Post as an experiment in context, perception and priorities — as well as an unblinking assessment of public taste: In a banal setting at an inconvenient time, would beauty transcend?
And the results, while not unexpected, are nevertheless shocking. I’d like to think I would have stopped if I had passed by and heard him play, but I’m not sure I would have. I definitely would have given him $5 if I had passed while he was playing Schubert’s “Ave Maria” though; I just love the song so much that I make it a point to show that to any street performer that plays it.
Oh yeah, and there are videos. Check it out.
