The Purpose of a Man

++Developing theory: As someone who has read oodles of wiki entries, I posit that it's some kind of celebrity rule that you have to be related to someone named Sam.

++By far the weirdest part of that Tove Lo song is that she eats Twinkies.

++Not to get all Forrest Gump but life's kind of funny sometimes. One minute you're all grossed out by disgusting garbage people and then next minute you're like:"Ooh, laminating machine!"

++(Yorkshire Pudding, above: As an insomniac this picture speaks to me.)

I was looking up the origin of the word York and found out it is derived from the Viking word Jorvik, which doesn't sound as nice. New Jorvik Jets, Duke of Jorvik. And of course to accompany this thought was going to post the song Duke of Earl that I mix up mentally/musically with Game of Love, the better of the two..hard to explain.

Anyway, Wayne Fontana sure was attractive and charismatic, though his looks were probably better suited for modern times? Wild wiki bio, this one.

 ++I wonder if Kofi Annan's mad at Queen Sugar up and comer Kofi Siriboe for potentially outranking him in the Kofi Google search rankings.

++Today's Pick: from Motion Graphics, on the Domino label and catch your breath before listening to it, because it's got a lot of breathy noises in the background.

++Read the plot to the Accountant movie and I gotta say, I think I'd like a movie about real accountants better. Sure, boring sounding at first blush, but as I have mentioned before, all the accountants I know are kooky.

++Heard this on radio yesterday . So with my recent love for Chet Atkins, revisiting the Drive By Truckers and now the Avett Bros, am in a old country kind of not-hipster-more-fond- memories-of -Country Bear Jamboree -mood.

Lavender Fingers


++I haven't really wanted to purchase a tee with print on it since the mid-aughts..might make an exception if this one came my way. #nostalgia

++Why does it seem like everyone started talking about Dar Williams again at the same time as me?

++I think I make this joke every few months. "You've got something right there."

++Sheesh. All I wanted to do was see what Mike Cooley's been up to and I ended up learning how to make a guitar!

++There was this conversation on Twitter where people weighed in on who they'd cast to capture their interior critical voice...pretty sure I'm going with the guy from the Koyaanisqatsi trailer here.

++Every now and again fashion tries to bring overalls back into style. Haha, riiight, fashion, some of us learn from our mistakes on the very first go round.

++I want to see part two of the T-Mobile Nikki Minaj/Snapchat ghost commercial *after* they leave the restaurant and go on a Purge style murder spree.

++If I was a young rich lady or supermodel, I'd have someone create/cast an epoxy mold of my face at its prime so that later my plastic surgeon could just peel off the old wrinkly face or cover it with the pre prepped young mold. That way, you always look like you or your old best self not some morphed other.

Tellin' Me This and Tellin' Me That

++2016, man. Up is down, down is up..

++I get such vicarious frustration for Cher whenever I hear the Shoop song. Why won't those chicks listen, daggumit?

++I'm not so into this Cody Wise song, but there's one line where I'm all, "oh so that's where that slang line came from." Love me any kind of origin story and what not.

++I Googled @jooleeloren and one of the first results that came up was "The coolest instagram" and I was like "Harumph, I'll be the judge of that!" and y'know what, as an appreciator of doodlers, ok she's pretty cool.

++I don't know what kind of twee has gotten into me today but let's listen to this, (as was the song from yesterday) from The Catch and the epp where "Ben, Margot and Felicity introduce themselves to Prime Minister Carla Velasquez and her husband, Diego"....(No idea.)

No Getting Over You

 ++Hey, lay off poor Giuliana, maybe it's a nervous tic. My fallback is to ask people about bad neighbor or stalker stories because that's a sure fire icebreaker, and everyone's had one or knows a story about one. And if you don't, it's YOU! If that's the case that's when I make a beeline for the crudites. #beelines.

++If ya listen to the YT peanut gallery this song has been featured on The Catch, Fifa 17 and driving on Santa Monica BLVD!


++YO! These are like the only things I ever write about, lol.

++This is the only thing I feel like listening to this morning. I gotta be me!
