Stoneship

++Stay, summer, stay.(Hey what a coinky, me and Sam Seo are wearing the same pants today.)

++Where does he rock, do you ask?

++Also, did he earn them or did they just need someone to hold these for a sec?

Quickies

Main_street_icebike_107023

++Ice bikes! I'm into it. (That poor Parkinson's town.)

++Didn't they used to serve you refreshments before you went on when you were in the green room? Things have changed.

++Speaking of change and things...For a while there everything was being named "American______" and now the trend seems to be "______Things." Pamela Adlon will always sound like Bobby Hill to me.

++Hoo boy, today's already off and galloping, so I don't know what the gist of this is all about but it looks like my jam so I'll pin it here to read later. I like easy to digest simple, reptilian brain piffle arranged with pics and a few lines of text underneath.

++Big whup, LA was invaded by Kathy Varas years ago.

++And what about some elegant music for a Monday morning? This should do nicely...:

Metro Boomin

Los-angeles-massive-fleur-de-lys-estate-sells-to-a-highly-secretive-french-billionaire-for-a-record-102-million

++Have I already blogged about Metro Boomin? Too lazy to look and don't know the deal I just like sayin Metro Boomin.

++Was reading about the sale of Hef's Playboy mansion, now recorded as one of the biggest residential sales in LA County. Prior to this it was the Fleur de Lys, pictured above, once owned by a "secretive French billionaire" and deemed a great site for an "off with their heads" party. That's prob the best reason to buy a house at that price, for the potential party themes?

Your Jealous Abuelita

++Am not in favor of people discovering and co-opting pozole. Can't some things remain untouched by the masses?!?

++I sorta love the trend writers have been employing a lot these days of saying "that's a lot to unpack" or "there's a lot to unpack there!" Oh if only I was working on project that had lots of moving parts so I could use this authoritative tone of voice.

++Maybe today is just being a real Wednesday but I got no tiiiiime to figure this out chile. At least not on a mobile setting.

++Oh hey, here's one from old pals Weyes Blood who are still gettin it done...seems an apropos way to bookend my emo week.

Valentino Fall 2016 Ad - 05

Microblogging

Sina-weibo
++Alternate universii are always cool/compelling to me and above is what Twitter in China looks like, with a service called Weibo (I think I've written about this before.) Even the bird logo is slightly different.

++The other night my husband and I walked into a restaurant that went hard on the blue neon decor. I said "This looks like a scene from a Michael Mann movie where a shootout would take place. All that's missing is a giant fish tank." Him "Yeah, I'm just waiting for shots to be fired and group of hookers that comes running out from the back, screaming and giggling."

This Is Revelational

++I'm going to do something that I don't normally do, which is to post a song that I'm mostly just lukewarm on... it's kinda catchy I guess? That was (is?) a fun trend...the text across the face thing.

++For the record, I do NOT see The Edge's face in this picture but I'm sure if I squinted really hard I probably could.

++Probably the scariest part of Silence of the Lambs for people was when the lady had to put lots of lotion on.. because whenever you have too much lotion and you spread it on to someone else they get horrified... it's like you are asking them to kill for you or for help moving.

++Hey Avery: permission to use "Peeky binders." C'mon, it's gold.
