Ok, the name of the band is “Thursday”. It’s a bit confusing. It took me a minute to realize that “Thursday” was the name of the band and not when it was playing.
The lead singer in a recent show donned a fencing mask and foil during a performance. No idea why, but this earns the band “Thursday” my very first “fencing band of the week” award.
Fencing continues to take over…Now if only we could get Lady Gaga to wear a fencing outfit…Seems like it might fit with her style, no?

Found this very cool photoshoot with Mariel Zagunis done by photographer Ben Reed and makeup artist Amy Gillespie.
Now what other sport could do something this cool?
From the makeup artist Amy Gillespie: Ben has apparently been watching quite a bit of Kill Bill as of late and the films were a big influence on this shoot. He wanted Mariel to be surrounded by bodies and to have a cut on her forehead a la Uma Thurman. (Read more: http://amygillespie.blogspot.com/2009/09/mariel-zagunis.html)
I was in transit from Moscow to NYC (so good to be home!) so I missed this one, but here are the details from Craig Harkins…(Congrats Mariel and Dagmara!)
From www.Fencing.net: Mariel Zagunis continued her run of medals for this world cup season with a 2nd place finish at the Moscow Sabre Grand Prix. The two-time Olympic champion lost in the finals 15-10 to China’s Y. Bao. (READ MORE: http://www.fencing.net/news/us-fencing/zagunis-silvers-in-moscow-%11-wozniak-top%118.html)
