i know some of you have wondered where Jeanine is

woodstocks in isla vista

she took to her blog yesterday and showed a bunch of pictures about how isla vista is changing

most notably Woodstock’s and Javan’s is going through a major remodel over the summer.

but as for our favorite jeweler and guitar goddess?

I’ll summarize it briefly by saying I’m feeling a lot healthier, more sober,
and grateful to be in one of my most favorite places of all time.
I love Isla Vista.

and we love her.

i dont know who this alexi wasser person is

but I think American Apparel should hire her immediately.

they’re a freakin penny stock (arent we al these days) who has great display ads

and even better online ads, but for some reason the kids arent flocking to their stores as they did in olden times

then all of a sudden theres this alexi character who pretty much embodies that brand’s whole essense

and it appears that she makes her own video spots pretty well by herself (cough:low-overhead)

and suddenly you have an online viral sausage machine of hits.

except unlike the LonelyGirl15 malarkey, this is somewhat genuine.

as genuine as youre gonna get for 2011 at least.
