Game

29 Nov

One of my most favorite things is when I see someone who looks like the country they are from. You don’t even have to ask them their nationality, because you can already by the shape of their face & their very distinct features.

For example. . .

British.

French.

I don’t know, but it’s fun.

Oh boy

Merci, merci, merci to whomever plugged my blog today! To my surprise, the numbers on this thing hit a new high around 10am this morning! So, if you’re the little lad or lady who linked me- you are incredible!

Rock n’ roll will save your soul

I posted this on my Facebook, but since not everyone can read my Facebook, here it is:

 

I recently made a really great playlist on my iTunes & I wanted to share it with you. It’s not a lot of songs, but they are all so perfect, I don’t really feel like any other song could be added to make this playlist sound more complete than it already is.

“Beside You” – Van Morrison
+ Everything this man sings makes me feel alive.

“Cigarettes & Coffee” – Otis Redding
+ Pure intimacy.

“Girl From the North Country” – Bob Dylan
+ It makes me think of home & all of my lovely friends.

“Gimmie Shelter” – The Rolling Stones
+ Pure violence, with the most painfully beautiful female vocals from Merry Clayton.

“Set the Controls For the Heart of the Sun” – Pink Floyd
+ I’m not a big Pink Floyd fan, but this song is really cool. I don’t know of a better word to describe it. If you want to know what being on drugs is like without actually being on drugs, turn off the lights, close your eyes, & listen to this song.

“Suzanne” – Leonard Cohen
+ Out of reach. . . .

“I Can’t Write Left Handed (live)” – Bill Withers
+ I remember my whole musical education & curiosity began when I was 14 & saw someone do a cover of this song at Satori Sound Records while I was living in Mobile.

“Whiter Shade of Pale” – Procol Harum
+ I always hear this song through my stomach. It feels like when you go down a small hill really quickly in a car.

“All Along the Watchtower” – Jimi Hendrix
+ Unless it’s live, I think my favorite time to listen to music is while walking around the city. This song just seems to make the world seem more real- it needs the streets. & besides, Dylan liked it.

“Dropout Boogie” – Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band
+ There is a world where people shed tin tears & this song is at the top of the download charts. It is a much better place.

“Tell It Like It Is” – Aaron Neville
+ If I could only listen to one song for the rest of my life, this one would be very high on my list.

I advise all of you to get your hands on these songs & burn them onto a CD. $50 says you can’t help but feel good after the CD is done playing.

Oh God, so good

Fuck every other movie that has come out this year. If you don’t see “Pirate Radio” / “The Boat That Rocked” (different names for different countries), you are a fucking idiot. This is, by far, the best movie that has come out this entire year. Oh my God, it’s so good.

 

To sum it all up: if you like sex, drugs, rock n’ roll, & boats…you’ll royally flip your shit over this movie. & the soundtrack…oh God, the soundtrack. It’s perfect.

Dolla, dolla bill ya’ll

Happy thanksgiving! I have done nothing today aside from buy a dress & eat a hot pocket. It’s been kinda lame & I hate being alone on holidays.┬áBlah blah blah- here is something I love:

Sweets for my sweeties

23 Nov

I’m not a big fan of sweets, but these cupcakes are really cute!

Except these:

These aren’t cute, just plain badass.

After seeing all of these pictures of cupcakes, I have decided to bake a few things of my own tomorrow. If you live in San Francisco & we’re friends, I’ll probably be leaving a pecan pumpkin pie on your doorstep this week. They won’t be neat looking like these things, but uhh…it’s something, none the less.

Going to the chapel. . .

As some of you know, I am going to Greece the day after Christmas for my cousins wedding. I did a little online shopping earlier today & got some really pretty things I am quite excited about!

I’ve just gotta get a few more dresses & some sweaters, then I’m set. I’ve decided to battle the crowds on black friday & hit up Nordstroms, Barneys, & Macys. Hopefully I won’t get trampled & will leave with a few things. I’ve heard through the grapevine that the Marc Jacobs section at Barneys is going to be having a big discount, & I am in training mode to trample any stupid bitch that gets in my way of a Dr. Q Aiden Bowler bag. Tis the season….
