3 Neons: Scream

by Eddie O'Keefe

When I was looking for this weeks journal list of the week, I was lucky enough that my favorite photographer from my favorite blog, The Teenage Head, posted a series of beautiful photos (linked in caption) in which I found (HELL YEAH) a neon of ice cream/a milkshake that could totally pass for ice cream anyway.

(btw, sorry I've been slacking with this blog, I've been sorting out some My Future stuff so that's been taking up my time and also just major procrastination. i'll be catching up on everything tomorrow)

Journalist: Firecrackers and Shots

by Klaksaur!

So from 4th to maybe 6th or 7th grade my Big Summer Highlight was always getting Shots from the ice cream truck. I have no idea why I was so into them (probably because I've always had such fine taste® my whole life). Anyway, my "can't get through the summer without eating" ice cream has changed a million times since. I've circulated between Shots, Choco Tacos, King Cones, Good Humor Strawberry Shortcake, etc etc. It seems for the rest of the world, especially around Independence Day, the main staple for summer ice cream has been Firecrackers. It's the main signifier that, yes, God bless, it is truly, fully Summer.

But we're already over halfway through August and summertime is running out as is the time when it's socially acceptable to buy and eat ice cream (as if this stops me from buying it in the winter). SO, for that reason, this weeks Journalist is: Ice Cream You HAVE To Have During The Summer. For me, it's Breyer's Peach Ice Cream, Good Humor Strawberry Shortcake Bars, any kind of strawberry ice cream, Blue Bunny Peanut Butter Panic, and Americone Dream. If you need any inspiration for your own list, check out this great ice cream review article from Rookie. Also feel free to share your own list in the comments!

Happy Belated Birthday Tomasz Starzewski!

Tomasz Starzewski, though perhaps not as much of a household name such as Donatella Versace or Alexander McQueen, has quite a CV to his name. He has designed clothes for Princess Di and famously designed the wedding dress for her sister-in-law, Victoria Lockwood. He designs clothes for all ages and of all styles but maintains that "sophistication remains at the core of of his design ethic." On his website you can take a peek at his current collection as well as an archive of past collections from recent years and seasons.
