- developing the abilities
- Sark! er.... I mean Adam
- Getting some backstory on the company and especially Mrs. Petrelli's past (but I still have no idea what her and Kaito's abilities are)
- Clair and West (I know that this story line has been quite corny but I think it's quite reflective of highschool/first loves)
- The miseducation of Peter Petrelli (by the a fore mentioned Sark...er I mean, Adam)
- Maya, I fucking hate this character. She's a naive moron and grates on every inch of my nerve and has since the very first moment I saw her onscreen. Beautiful girl, terrible character. Also completely unbelievable that she would just abandon her other half/brother for Sylar
- Mohinder. He may be pretty but he's also a naive moron to the extreme. I forgave him in season one for this but it seems that the character's sole purpose is to idiotically latch onto some corrupted belief and fight for that, usually in defiance and to the detriment of his own moralistic cause. It drives me insane how fucking beyond-stupid and easily manipulated the character is. Plus, he can't act.
- Niki/Mikha's storyline. Love the Granny but could care less about the copycat cousin. I really like Niki and Mikha but I couldn't care less about their storyline in this arc. It's just , yawn, SO BORING.
I'm on ther boderline with the Parkman storyline. I like that he's grappling with the invasiveness of his ability and how he is being manipulated and seduced by the power that it brings. But like with all the characters he too is obsessed with "doing the right thing" "being the hero" and "saving the world" and this ambition nearly always clouds his judgement, usually for the worse. Actually, I guess that would be my strongest complaint about the show in general. While I find this obsession in Hiro, the Patrelli's and Clair and Noah compelling, I can't stand it in Mohinder and it usually bothers me with Parkman. Also, why is it that the heroes can't seem to work together this year? Regardless, I'm in it for the long haul, so I'll just have to wait and see how it all plays out.
Please just let Mohinder and Maya die and be gone. Please!!

I completely believe that keeping yourself covered adds mystery and allure, but in today's internet-ready, stalkerazzi-friendly society nothing is sacred. Flashing a boob is pretty standard and with all those little starlets running around without underwear... well you get the point.
The female form is such an artistic standard that even us up-tight North Americans have accepted its' prevalence in mainstream culture and to show it in all it glory is hardly subversive anymore. The exposure of the male form, however, has not enjoyed such a North American liberation. A penis is an automatic NC-17. I guess that's what you get when society has been and continues to be run by a bunch of out-of-touch misogynistic afraid-of-the-gay born-again neo-cons.

A penchant for wearing t-shirts with images of Charles Manson or Christ, denim cut-off short shorts, tight-ass leather pants, NWA caps, kilts, flannel, a catchers breast-protector... it feels so wrong to think of this man as a style icon (of the 80's&90's), but it just seemed like he didnt really give a f*%! and I have to admire that.

Dolce & Gabbana didn't look to the capri/ibiza/boxy-minimalist crib sheet. They were able to reference their past collection and yet make room for new expression. Sure there was that see-through, shifting silhouette (like at jill sander) and the painter/brushstroke artists look has been explored before but this collection stood out. The shrunken portfolio inspired handbags, the booties, the colours, the shapes, the exquisit fabrics... I loved it all.

I saw the leggings and I immediately thought of my friend so I decided to try and find an outfit to highlight them so that I could take these photos of myself.

I may have quickly gotten over the Murakami LV prints introduced in 2003(due to the bazillions of knock-offs; the multi-coloured print on white is still going strong at knock-off stalls and on the arms of pretty little things 4 years on) but it didn't really affect my love of all other things Murakami. This video reminds me why I loved (and still do love) the superflat movement.
