a long time ago, when i worked at this old house magazine, we, the underlings, used to call the Time Inc. self-esteem hotline. it was an internal number that had an amazing recording. a woman with a british accent would say things like, "you are important," and "people in the elevator like the way you smell." it was so much fun to call when you were feeling low -- especially if you could gather a crowd and listen on spearkerphone.
fashion week daily reports that the iPod party boys, Andrew Andrew, have a fashion hotline you're supposed to call before you get dressed. they will tell you to wear all black, to use a post-it note as an accessory, or to dress like your favorite building. call daily!
Andrew Andrew's Fashion Hotline: 800.593.0103
also cool: defamer directed me to a band called mynx. they have a song and video called i'm so LA, and it's insane. best line: "my sunglasses match the cocaine tray, i'm so LA."
