Shoewawa Report

The Age claims the big trend in footwear this season is fetishism.

Kylie Minogue teeters on the red carpet.

There is an article attached as well. It is probably very interesting.

Unrelated good news: Joss Whedon is reported to have a new television series on the way. Better yet, it is set to star Eliza Dushku (hat tip to the Sister of the Flea). Here is a Fox blurb; an interview follows.

Echo (Eliza Dushku) [is] a young woman who is literally everybody's fantasy. She is one of a group of men and women who can be imprinted with personality packages, including memories, skills, language—even muscle memory—for different assignments. The assignments can be romantic, adventurous, outlandish, uplifting, sexual and/or very illegal. When not imprinted with a personality package, Echo and the others are basically mind-wiped, living like children in a futuristic dorm/lab dubbed the Dollhouse, with no memory of their assignments—or of much else. The show revolves around the childlike Echo's burgeoning self-awareness, and her desire to know who she was before, a desire that begins to seep into her various imprinted personalities and puts her in danger both in the field and in the closely monitored confines of the Dollhouse.

In light of Dita Von Teese's inability to put her feet flat on the floor, this is all starting to sound like Chinese foot binding.

The voluntary aspect is fairly ironic considering the practice eas outlawed over a century ago when Japan took control of Taiwan.
