Seeps Into Your Bones

++Surprised they didn't go with a goofy, loopy font for the title lettering.

++I've had Sugar Ray's dangblasted song Someday stuck in my head for a good four days straight now. I sheepishly asked my husband (never one to withhold a critical opinion) what he thought of it, and he replied plainly: "It's good..." in a tone usually reserved for a box of TicTacs. He was going to elaborate about how he thought the guy singing in the song was dead, and how he is inviting the girl to swim in the deep blue sea to crossover or something like that but by then I had tuned out, satisfied in the victory. #Cheever (Side note: Coolio and Mark McGrath did a Wife Swap on You Tube. It is pretty much what you would imagine it to be.)

Esperanza

++Dang... via Gorilla V Burr, listen to this loudly on headphones for some free bliss. Brava.

Nestor's Face

I was going to put a newer video for PUP but the screenshot that was frozen on You Tube was a biggole bloody face and who needs that when you are just trying to push through another weeeeek!? Busy Tuesday so here's today's placeholder, and an energetic one at that...

Your Monkshoodrat Friend

Hqdefault

For whatever reason I was trying to look up what botanists list as their favorite plants. I came upon lots of lists pertaining to scariest and most dangerous plants.

Nature's often cruel ..and in some cases there's a slim difference between edible plants and their toxic twins/dopplegangers. Wanna enjoy a carrot? Oops wrong one, yer dead!! How about the bounty of castor beans, sorry DEAD! Ea093a5bfadfd87211ae60decd6b539c_600x400
And while these plants can kill you and your beloved pup, they're often still quite gorgeous and there's actually a collection of them in a special garden in England. Just look and don't touch if you wanna ricin shine the next day, har har.

Logophile

 ++They rerun this tweet all the time and every time I see it I think, "noooo, it will end with them killing each other."

++As a lover of words (there's gotta be a word for that) I find it fascinating how language changes with the times. What'll it all mean for these two??

++I've been watching a buncha Graham Norton episodes and this one with Kevin Costner and Helen Mirren is one of my favorites so far. I can't say that I was necessarily a fan of either actor previous to this but her razor sharpness and ability to work a room is something to behold and his storytelling most compelling.

Green Guitar

++I relate to what little I know about Snorlax from this video because I too spend most my days enraged and half asleep.

++Porches: Not every post can be fire. There'r weeks when the only thing that will set your heart ablaze is a cantor at a synagogue. And I'm only halfway sold on Porches, but there is something unusual in this guys tone and shaping during this song...maybe I need to keep swimming around good in their catalogue for the right fit.

The Things They Preach

64fa4a49228821b6e00221cd9eb7984a

++Tsk, always a shame when a hot celebrity couple, each of whom are sexy in their own right, have a non-hot offspring. It's like the hot is lost, dissipated into the atmosphere. Where does all the hot go? (Cats.)

++I guess lumberjacks want to eat their own shirts?(above)

++Maybe next year, Huckleberry.

++Have we decided how we feel about Nate Ruess? I think I like him? (I could do without the spoken word part.)

Chasing Paper

++Was reading about the Kaddish, which is I think is what the Ween song Israel is based on? I could be wrong. One thing's for certain, Cantor Azi Schwatz makes me wanna convert.

++The idea of Music for Breakfast on a Monday sounds good, with this Whitney redux by @itsyasmin who has been collaborating with Breakbot as of late..

++Don't want my fridge smarter than me. Asking me why I didn't put a cover on that.

++Broken Spanish: On the dessert menu I hope Abuelita broth means from a family recipe and not broth comin off his grandma. Kidding aside, mmm, champurraaaado. (Ah, just found out the Abuelita is reference to the Nestle brand.) Also, I think everyone I know has eaten here except mee.

++I think about that site from a few years back that gave all these visual representations of "there's two kinds of people." Either you zero out your inbox of emails or you have 900,000 unread emails. I compile my own examples daily, like, you are either love taking classes/seminars or you don't, etc. You either hand something to someone (such as a pen) directly when asked or you do a flourish with it. It goes on and on with me...(Did Dunham put you up to this, Penn?)

(SOG faves Laibach also do a cover of Two of Us which is worth a search.)

++I can't find in my (frequently unreliable) search feature whether or not I have written about Jack Whitehall. He's adorable in a puppy kind of way, and I love how his mum sent in all kinds of pics of him in costumes for the whole world to see.

Panatella

++Sumpin from Fifa 16.

++Nice takedown but I think what's missing is a noogie and one strong wet willy.

++I think I found the door into the time machine.

++Whenever I see "In Budokan" after a band's name on an album it reminds of the old joke of adding "in bed" to fortune cookies.

++Wait, hippos? Editor!?
