I’ve been time traveling lately, watching old episodes of SNL on Hulu, and I am so annoyed by those fujifulm xm1 commercials. Those ads are trying so hard it’s like they’re trying to sell real estate on Saturday morning tv in the early 2000s.
In my younger and more vulnerable years…I felt like this album was about the domesticity I should be so lucky as to experience. Mind you I was about 14 the first time I heard this album and it awoke all sorts of sordid and dramatic aspirational cohabitation fantasies that I felt I would one day be lucky (doomed) enough to experience. Fast forward less than a decade and I realize living with your boyfriend then husband when you’re young and stupid isn’t so glamorously awful, it’s something entirely more wonderful. Just goes to show I was some kind of messed up teenager. Exene and John forever!
…it heard me bragging and decided to bring me back to earth and play three Rancid songs in a row, that killed the mellifluous mood I was enjoying.
On occasion shuffle gets it right, I just heard Led Zeppelin, Santigold, X, David Bowie, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists…this is a good mix, wonder what’s next…
I aspire to be this ridiculously, whimsically, frivolously fabulous. Ugh, bows are the worst, right?
Splurge-y splurge splurge on this Beatles BBC Box Set that came out today! I was having some slight buyers remorse because BBC collections are a little hit or miss (the Kinks, definitely a hit; the Yardbirds, a miss) but slipping the first cd into my player solidified my very first instinct to buy it. I’m now all smiles and probably having entirely too much fun, so this is a hit.
The other picture is just bragging about how cute my holly hair barrettes are, so check ‘em out.
I have spent the better part of a decade with bad hair and today of all days I shall attempt to rectify that…yes, at 6:20 pm I decided my hair will no longer suck. So after getting lost in a sea of you tube videos I decided the best approach to my thick but fine hair is to buy some volumizing mousse and velcro hair curlers. I then proceeded to play with those rollers and get the teeniest tiny-est one stuck all up in my long bangs…it’s going to be a long night.
