Routing Guide


++Dood. Girls is already over, will it continue to spawn thinkpieces into infinityandbeyond?

++Walmart's purchase of Bonobos made me look a little deeper into both their concept and that of the current project of Bonobos founder...Trunk Club. Online retail is moving (the direction corporations are anticipating)toward virtual personal stylists and tailors who want permission to stalk your social media for style cues. The initial questionnaire has a Buzzfeed quiz feel to it. Hm. I will say it really appeals to the laziness of the consumer to not only outsource the decision making process (me) but have it all delivered to your home (so me!). But should I eff with them and give fake out cues make them "Dress Me Up As A Robber?" (Excuse to post a perennial standby, por supuesto.)

44 and X

++Said it before, will say it again.. would like to visit this world. Where's the VR tour? Hm, gwine to do a lil more research into the purple lovin director and see if that leads to anything.

++The Good Doctor: Hey, aren't You supposed to tell ME what the show is about, imdb?

++Funniest part of most Bruno Mars videos is how commenters are tracking "Julio"'s rapid ascent from chauffeur to scampi server.

++Business Plan: Seems the only thing people can agree on in this contentious world we live in is the love of complimentary homemade muffins.

++Do You See It? : Lol, ain't *that* hard to see. Not over here asking for a cryptex, settle down.

++The Bride: Succumbed to my Id this weekend and bought some old school Asics. Not the kind that the runners of today use that are tall and gel-filled but that flat profile once used by Bruce Lee. The specific name is the Onitsuka Tiger (and I got the Serranos and not the Mexico 66s; NERD siren!) 
named for the Japanese military officer who began working on variations in sole surfaces for both runners and basketball players as far back as 1949.


Bees vs. Wasps: Servicey


Back then they used to sell for $6! (One last fun fact per Wiki: Asics is an acronym for "A Healthy Soul in A Healthy Body." So Japanese!) Will post a few vids later today of Onitsuka himself and one very good salesman...

(Update: They arrived today and totally live up to the hype! Also, FaceApp is blowing my mind.)

Everybody Squats


++Sure everyone's like squats-this, squats-that, but clearly no one has heard my husband tell the second hand tale of Henry Rollins watching someone's kneecap pop out at the gym while doing squats and fly across the room. That can't be true, can it? I refuse to look it up.

What To Say


++I generally like the people I follow online but am way more concerned about the welfare of their dogs.

++Fischerspooner: Some people just know how to accessorize. Lol what was happening back then...

Tuesday, April 18, 2017


++So chill.

++What if instead of Moana they told the musical tale of Moesha? #wouldwatch

++All These Sleepless Nights: Man, this reviewer is really obsessed with this actor's head and all its attributes, qualities, dimensions..his face. He better hope the reviewer doesn't take up brain surgery to get really inside his head. Run!

Vip Vop

Quick takes on The Cramps' Lux Interior and Poison Ivy (who like the pic I posted of John Lennon the other day could still rock this outfit today.):

++Am always amazed at when couples tell the story of how they first met the woman usually makes a mental connection while for men it is a more visual experience.

++Here's an InStyle home tour for ya!

++Commenters always say what you are thinking, namely: How does he get those pants to stay on?

Project Pabst

++I probably already wrote this but every time I read the name Car Seat Headrest I think of Headwound Harry. Hm, this might be year 12 of me referencing Massive Headwound Harry.

++Certain terrible people IRL should come with seizure inducing warnings like at the start of You Tube videos.

++Hope of the Democrats Jon Ossoff used to play ultimate frisbee. Finally some representation for that demographic.

++I'm sure Trader Joes is really proud of isself for using the California Grown logo on a lot of its products but it just makes me think of the nonpleasant DMV when I'm just trying to enjoy my pleasant breakfast. Also it is redundant, stating California twice, adding to the ruination.

++I bet Lena Dunham has the reverse of the common bad dream where she's naked in front of an audience whilst giving a speech. She's like all bundled up for a Minnesota winter at the podium.

++New Math: Man, exactly how many Skarsgards are there now? Take whatever number you can imagine and multiply it by minions for a Skarsgard Count. My guesstimate? 14 minion Skarsgards. And this latest one is playing Pennywise. They tend to play baddies in their work, terrorizing us come to think of it, just like those damn minions. And none of us have that weird thing that goes over the "å" in their name to get it right. Gawsh!

++Today's Pick: Julie Byrne who is hitting a few tour dates with the abiding Kurtis Vile. Sure you assume she's in nature but it could also be some elaborate backyard behind a minimansion in Calabasas. Lot of em have fake landscape waterfalls...they're all "hey jules that's pretty, but we got a cookout to start here."

The Asatru Alliance


++Today's Pick: A lil dose o' disco (mmmm*) from 2015 via a Siriano show.

 ++Highlander/Yasuke: When will the Black Samurai battle the White Princess? Gotta watch those middle managers, man, always gunning for the top seat.

++A man in his forties I think is kind of cute but everyone hates is yet another case of my ongoing quiet personal rebellion in a world that tells you what's right.

++All My Friends Are Heathens: My favorite part of any FAQ is when the responder is all like, "No!" and gets all steamed.

++Nico Mirallegro is no Nacho Vigalondo is you ask me.

++But if I get the iPhone case then I will never want to stop eating them. (#Areawomaneatsphone.)

++I had to turn off the SOG mailbox because it's too unwieldy but I am constantly plagued by worry that I'm missing an invite to a great show/new venue like poor Alison Becker is plagued by Kathy Griffin in that Viberzi ad.

++Had another celeb interaction yesterday which is always weirdly dreamlike and surreal. I used to be a fan of King of Queens and it always reminds me of when Eddie Money or Lou Ferrigno show up in normal people's lives.

++Will always have an affection and the slightest smile that comes to my face for "Not great,Bob!" ..and hoping it is never used as a reference or as a band name. There are so many things I wish had been allowed to stay unrevisited or left alone. (Oh here she goes!)
