++Good morning. My ancestors would be so proud knowing all their years of 'strivin' and survivin' (TM) weren't for naught, if they could see me play this little game where I use my/their lightning quick reflexes(:01) to open the microwave door with one second left on the clock.
++Was trying in vain to come up with the perfect word to convey a notion when emailing someone the other day, and I finally remembered it today, and that word was "ostensibly." Yaaasss. Such relief. Just had to share this somewhere. Oh how I love that word. Ostensibly. One of the greats.
++Meaning/Baphomet: 1) Hm, I wonder if all cultures have a Wizard of Oz type legend. 2) Like the boy, I too have the ability to perceive people's problems but when I scream at them it doesn't seem to have a healing effect.
ANYWAY! I'm feelin' generous today! So let's see what new in another episode of From the Inbox:
++Playclothes, a vintage clothing store in Burbank, will host a fashion show featuring costumes worn by Edie Adams on December the 12th. The event will be sponsored by Luna Vine Wine bar and the DVD above (as well as the clothes worn by Edie) will be for sale. Sounds kinda fun! Here's some vid of the Eedster, a one time Muriel cigarette girl. Which to me sounds cooler than any Ted talk lecturer title.
++Aww, my babies The Orwells are touring with The Arctic Monkeys. Ain't that a kick in the pants! Jenn says, "OMG, congrats Mario Cuomo, the Brinner Brothers and Dominic Corso![snaps gum,looks bored]" (Dude, what I really want in my inbox one of these days is a remix of the Chupacabra pajama song. Cuucuucuukoo pijama!)
++The Black Angels are embarking on a winter tour to promote a new album Indigo Meadow, opening for Roky Erickson. The fuzzmasters' tour begins on January 31st in Lawrence, KS and ends March 1st in Dallas, TX. Alas, no Cali.
++Know how a good house will make you feel like a better dancer than you really are? This is that song, house people. Fake it til you make it, as the dancer of your dreams. Gonna be played on the fashion runways mighty soon.
