Still Holds Up

CNUQqcKWcAAJffQ
++Do the Pretty girl scarf scarf scarf. Do the pretty girl scarf scarf.

++Heh, still the same group of about 20 people influencing all of media for the larger part of 10 years now. Such a small small circle. If one of them flinches/sneezes or brings in a new idea the whole world buckles for a few seconds.

++Who's the guy with the creepo voice who narrates the Queen of Earth trailer? I am a big scaredy cat baby who heard just a few seconds of his voice and I'm like "I'm OUT!" Just like I got a few comments deep into the Salad Fingers videos on You Tube and said "Peace!!" Not even gonna link to that sh-t. (Shudder.)Also, is it me or does Katherine Waterston always seem to be an apparition in her roles? She might just be a scary hologram for all u know.

++Yo, I was gonna slap Sam Sparro's latest track up here because, Sam Sparro! 'Memba him? Throwback! But I'm going with the old instead. How he finds time to do all this and run the mall pizza places boggles the mind. (Pretty sure I made the same joke, like [holy s!] 7 years ago.)

 

This Is All I Do

++QT sketches and a humble site, in general by Omar Noory.

++I'm sure it ain't got nothin' on my CVS.

I have those same sandals. (Everyone has those sandals these days.)

In the Waves

++I would wear her outfit today.

++Ahh, the hardest role of them all for an actor: to be human.

++Not crazy about the term, but I get it.

++Today's Pick: How pure is this lady's voice? Nice contrast against the thick air of the backing music.

Quickies

++I've got a bit of an inventor's streak and have been on a creative tear of sorts lately. How the wood and duct tape has been flyin creating prototypes and what not. (Duct tape, I Love You.) Between that and working on perfecting my Jerry Stiller impersonation, I say whatever additives the corporations are injecting into the environment are definitely working out for me.

++Let's listen to some Kraftwerk today, try not to dance with our brooms.

Lunch Poems

++Seems like it's acceptable to be openly hostile towards Geminis on the Internet. The ones I've known have been ok? They need to form a movement like The Gingers once did....galvanize, etc.

++Total subtweet.

++Limosines: Pretty much anytime someone uses the modern day shortcut disclaimer ",um,"...you KNOW I got to look that up. Why oh why did I look that up.

U Don't E-Say

 

Phew, I am barely sputtering towards the end of this week, and it can't come soon enough! Might close shoppe even earlier than usush.

++These single serving Twitters always crack me up.

++The description for the video above is "noise rock noise." Period. End of story. Which is good enough for this little lady.

Delta Edit

++SF but no LA, da fuq?

++Wish I was having as much fun as Chayanne.

++Quit stabbin me in the ovaries baby chukka boots.

++Hanging Chad:I demanded a recount of my own earlier opinion that Gaby Moreno only gets honorable mention for her version of QQQ. She's come from the back of the pack and inspired me to post another of her songs. As someone who became independent in the 90s I wish they'd hit more of these bluesy notes these days. Just lovely.

Quizas, Quizas, Quizas

6 Patrick Stump 620
++So wise no disagreement there, but plz share the hot dog locales kthx.

++It's kinda weird hearing today's kids talk about Fall Out Boy having grown up with them, etc., and the band's history, etc. While the band isn't my speed, I gotta admit that Pat Stumpf has a great set of pipes and cites some excellent influences.

++One person Stump namechecks is the great Nat King Cole, who I absolutely love. NKC has a bunch of songs en espanol on You Tube and I was sufficiently annoyed by the stiffness of his rendition of Quizas Quizas Quizas to look for something better. What a weird world to enter: You have Bocelli and JLo's uneven performance on DwTS, this handsome guy trapped in a Yoplait commercial and I don't even know what is going on here, but I like it? Anyway, I think I like the crisp craftsmanship of Trio Los Panchos followed by Celia Cruz, with a honorable mention to Gaby Moreno and oh poor broken Ibrahim Ferrer! Here are the lovelorn lyrics translated.

Quickies

++I've sort of had this passing flirtation/interest in watching the movie Wild over the past few years, and do ya ever have that thing where you do enough research on something that you fulfill the need to actually follow through on buying it? Yeah, that. Still, this interview with Cheryl Strayed (see the Amy Winehouse rule of your name fitting you, "stray'ed" aka, straying=walking..) and Reese Witherspoon kind of gave me the chills and made me feel something. I hate that!

The interview is so sensitive and thoughtful he almost brings his subjects to tears!

Anyway, whats kind of funny is how people get their Underoos in a bunch over some people mistakenly calling the Pacific Crest Trail the Pacific Coast Trail. There are bigger wars to wage, people. Here's something else for discussion, has anyone ever pointed out how much the western seaboard is shaped like an illustration of a fetus. Discuss.

++On that note: Notice to all people of Instagram, and ok, the internet: Time for a moratorium on captioning anything "Heart shaped _____." Whatever it is, that phrase has been overused.

++Ohhkay, I know its been super boring but all I wanna do is watch chilling vids with instrumentals. Hope I snap out of this phase soon.
