Martin and MacArthur

++Now we are talkin!

++This Flock of Dimes live video is sort of John Waters meets Sukiyaki, aka autopost.

++When did Uberfacts become an emotionally abusive parent?

++Man oh MANS, it is tantalizingly close to the holiday weekend and all I wanna do is look at Koa wood bowls. Read up on the history of Koa.. The more you Koa as they say.  Ability to blog or think or have to think is faaaading ffffaaaaaaaast.

++Besides Teff, there's also a grain called Freekeh! Internet just gives and gives.

She Doesn't Have the Range

++ I'm always surprised when I learn something new and I honestly had never heard of a grain called "teff." Marti Noxon, who is behind Unreal and Buffy and wrote Keanu Reeves' latest film runs a flour mill in Pasadena as a hobby and one of the things they use is, you guessed it: Teff.

++Speaking of food, I think more meals should come with tools/devices/weaponry. (Above) I don't know why the rock is slippery, seems like you'd want some traction there.

++I tried to look up a pic of Zac Efron's dad and it kept giving me pics of David Beckham which makes me think that maybe the Internet is now being run by Fanfic.(Capital F, meaning it is the all knowing governmental organization.#raisedoncomics)

++Pretty sure all women everywhere are wearing some shade of blue today. Was there some group memo?

++If the guys who made Airplane were still around they would totally be parodying all these movies about young couples in love with terminal illnesses.

++Kept hearing about the range for several weeks now so I finally looked it up. My fave is the Frank Ocean one..

++Almost feels like they repeated the chorus here 50 times but I was sort of in it.. Like they could repeat another 50 times. (Also picturing a boot scootin country western line dancing video for this a la last weeks American Honey clip.)

Skate 4 Is A Unicorn

++I shuffle and pass and swipe through a massive amount of content with this web addiction of mine, usually in milliseconds.. so it's always kind of curious (to me!) when I linger on something outside of my wheelhouse or interest set. Why do we like what we like?*

     Anyway, I stopped to listen to this guy and his plea for the release of Skate 4. There's always been a passing interest in gaming on SOG, mostly to mine for soundtrack gems. In this case it was relaxing and ASMR-ish to listen to someone multitask in a zone of enthusiasm and fun (Hey, Pimp Hat!)..like music..that is pure and nonpolarizing. I don't think any new Skate 4 developments came about at the expo he mentioned? Too badz. I know nothing about this world, but am the kind of person that if the parade is hype enough I'll join and start marching witcha.

Gallim Dance

++Laura Gibson: Well, I guess just like that Michael Pitt video the theme for this week for some reasons is people putting hands over other people's faces. Really tho, how DO you get comfortable on those chairs?

American Honey

CgvFjsCW4AA-wps.jpg large
++I like how a lot of the Cannes trailers are really just short clips from the movie. Wouldn't it be great if u r expecting the dramatic indie story of a girl who runs off to join a traveling magazine sales crew (really!)...but it's actually just a series of boring mother daughter arguments edited together America's Funniest Home Videos style?

++Shane cares way more about Freelee's unabashed self promotion way more than Freelee does. A lot of firebrand types have that Teflon-ality where they are rubber and you are glue, etcetera..honestly he's lucky to not have gotten lobbed with a banana.

++Says on his wiki that Rivers Cuomo is a massive soccer fan. Would not have guessed it.

++Next big thing: Hey I say bring back flash cards trendy now that the adult coloring book trend seems to be waning..(Hee, that would be such a sight. Adults with cartoony flash cards.)

++Isabel Allende says that no one cares about all your hours of training; it's the performance that matters. Yeah? Well what if your job is a trainer and its some kind Trainoff in the Trainer Olympics??#italktoarticles

For the Birds


++Read this above on a label and realized "stealing" is also recycling. Woah. #open refrigeratorthoughts

++Back in the day you used to be able to go from Margaretta Large Fitler to Happy Rockefeller, no thing, Chicken Wing.

++Wuthering High School: No one in modern day Malibu would be named Cathy anymore. Khalessi, maybe, but not Cathy.

++Speaking of names I read the Jack Dorsey article and the latest Vanity Fair and all I got out of it was that all the rooms in Twitter HQ are named for birds. Even these ones? (500th time linking to immature bird names.) Should I name this post "For the Birds?"(yes.)

++One thing I noticed about younger generations' music is that they don't have much heaviness in both message or sound. The earnestness and real instruments is what will make a song sound like a throwback...

Adventure Time

++I can feel in my bones without even searching that someone somewhere has done one of these charts for all the past decade's dance moves, the whip..dab..etc.

++Real badasses put their pants on TWO legs at a time.

++Somethin' for everyone here.. the beautiful Olivia Olson for the nerdz and some sweet simple hunky guitar-itry for meeeee. (Wonder if they ever yell "blood!blood!" like they yell "salt!salt!" during Margaritaville at Jimmy Buffett concerts?)(I love weird crowd chants like the crowd yelling "Cocaine" during Clapton.)

++It tickles me that Alexis was probably listening to Stevie Wonder's song "Lately" and wondered how Stevie saw himself in the mirror. My bet is that he thinks this every morning while shaving and what not. For those keeping track that's me wondering about Alexis wondering about Stevie.

The New York Five

++I find this cover art enchanting.(via Doctorow, who is generally my favorite netcurator these days..even if it's old stuff.)

++Media keeps using the word humblebrag incorrectly these days. :(

++A few weeks back I wrote about an article where scientists were debating the concept of reality being subjective. Just now, I wondered if an ad I was seeing was being seen by the general public as well. Most of the time I can recognize ads targeted towards past searches, but the increase in (sometimes indistinguishable) targeted ads alters what is each person's online reality.

++Ad idea: Britney Spears for lactose intolerant* products changing the Hit Me Baby lyrics to "My love of cheese is killing me.."

++(4:27)Tfw you tryna to get thru the self checkout, something won't scan and all the cashiers come out of the woodwork to help you.

Mobile Orchestra

++My Things To Do list is already on my mind enough without having to think about it first thing upon waking! (The rest of the pillows are cute, though!)

++Komposer Korner: I had a conversation over the weekend that went something like this: (her) "You know, that band Owls." Me: "You mean Eels?" "No Owls!" "I think you mean Eels." Turns out it was Owl City. And in related news, Owl City endeavors (#spacejoke) to be the next Mothersbaugh or Trent Rez.
