Floating Days

++Sad Twitter...Weird Twitter. The many moods of Twitter. Y so moody, Twitter?

++Aww darn, RIP to the great Galway Kinnell.

++Here's one from the Amy Winehouse Accuracy In Names Dept.: Alfonso Cuaron's girlfriend Sheherazade Goldsmith is a writer(storyteller) and jeweler.

++Best part of Birdman was N-word Norton's performance. N-word Norton really stole the show.

++Dug in the crates for this fantastic & obscure smoothie by 60s proggers Sopwith Camel. So chill. Bet u anything when he was mad at his band mates he changed the lyrics to "F-Fuh-Fuh-Fuh You"?

Light It Up Girl


++One thing I know for sure, the internet never tires of messing with Woll Smoth's face.

++Every time I read the name of these eggs, I imagine them being lectured by a dad or drill sergeant: "YOU'RE BEST ISN'T GOOD ENOUGH, SON!"


loves orange.

++Here's video of the one time we hired meth heads to remodel our bathroom. It actually turned out pretty well.

++Scott Walker sure does stay busy.

++Along the same lines...sure the future seems bright for Kristen and Dax, but imagine how much greater Marshall Tucker would've been.#manyworlds #dreambiggernexttime.

++She is just the funniest. Maybe second funniest?

++Listening to this Raury song for the first time...might take me a minute to pull apart and makes sense of all the lyrics... I like the general vibe so far though. (FF to the 1:21 mark when it cranks up.) (Someone needs some lessons from Smokey the Bear!)

Dr. Sulk


++I'll be laying in wait, hoping my husband complains about something today so I can use the line: "Boo hoo, Dr. Sulk." And he can thank today's Google doodle for that. (Hee hee, dying to use it! Someone complain...anyone! Please!) (Someone always complains.)

"but jes wait"

 ++So this is kinder randerm but style-wise lately I've been attempting to emulate Gia Coppola. I was googling her over the weekend. I've never seen Palo Alto, I just happen to find her simple fashion choices appealing and adaptable to my on-the-go lifestyle (eating Cheetos in front of a laptop.) I wouldn't go so far as saying her look is normcore, because it has flair.

attention dominic west ct is n order
.. I dunno, it's good to have taste of course, it's just lately I'm leaning towards basic clothes and people. Just straightforward stuff. 

Curious to know what Gia's next proj will be. Plus she gets Dev Hynes who once worked with my Skyeee. (Has anyone checked in on Sky lately to see if she's ok? I worry.)

Oh! The pic of the shoe at the stop is a Superga, a Gia fave, which also serves to illustrate the "basic yet with flair" point I'm making the most longwinded of ways..

++Two of my fave bloggers have been raving about Allo Darlin. Therefore lets us listen to some Allo D. And heck, why not an oldie from Rilo Kiles for smiles while we're here.

Swing On

++Cameron Esposito puts on a mean contour.

++What the furikake?! Good thing Kobe Bryant's parents weren't reading from this menu when they named him.

++From the inbox: Estelle is appearing on the KTLA Morning News on November the 10th to perform a single off her forthcoming album True Romance.

++I'm no conspiracy theorist but what's a sister gotta do to find a You Tube video of Tony Toni Tone's "Lay Your Head On My Pillow"? Tragic that youngs won't get the chance to stumble on that gold by accident.

++Travel Tip: The multilingual folks in Stereo Total say don't tell people in Berlin that you don't wanna dance.

When Writing Internet...


++If you have a few seconds, read the letter above written by Dr. Dre to his then girlfriend, now wife, Nicole. The funniest part is how he sees Burning Man for the first time and can't figure out why none of "these fools" is making any money off of it, ha ha. Oh man.

++There's a remake of The Crow on the way. Rejoice budding goths.

++Don't worry, just kick back and look at all the seconds left in the year. It's all gonna be fine!


++I don't know why this made me laugh.

++Fort Worth's Leon Bridges keeps his splash page niiiice and simple and his music easy on the ears.  Come home to your doctor, baby girl.:

Generation Z

++"Earning them the nickname 'digital natives.'": I'm picturing thatched huts with devices built into the walls?

++I wish more artists would adopt Billy Joel's views. Never cave, Billy.


++Forget all this McEnroe/cyclist business. Tell me more 'bout that there 75 year old jogger

++Director John Landis' son Max Landis, screenwriter of the movie Chronicle has published an early script he wrote (years ago) for a Super Mario Brothers movie that if filmed would come out to 7 hours. (I haven't downloaded it or read it.) He did it to show other writers the work you need to put in in order to succeed, and how you can come from inauspicious roots.

++Some homie is flooding our airwaves with campaign ads for State Superintendent of Public Instruction. I'm sure he'll win and he'll be fine. Fine, of course! But wouldn't it be great if were Marshall Tucker instead? The mysterious piano tuner and inspiration for the name of the band? He could teach kids how to tune a piano, an actual skill that could one day be put to use, unlike Algebra.

++ And with that, I'm out for the week. If anyone cares, my favey fave song of the past few weeks, to recap was this one by Porter Robinson. PEAAAAAAAAAACCCCCE!

31 Flavors

++Here's an interview with Meg Myers who is a little picture perfect indie for me, like she was designed by indie scientists or something. But, I still like this song generally and the way she's honest about being influenced less by Tori Amos and PJ Harvey and more by Heart (that you can definitely hear in the song below) and Jewel! That's unexpected. Plus I like this line where she talks about how she sometimes doesn't feel like slipping into her depressed and intense stage personality:

It's kind of hard sometimes. It’s like, oh, f-k, I have to go to that place right now, and that’s not where I want to go. ‘I had a good day. I had ice cream!

Shout Out

++I have a blouse with this exact same design. I sometimes pair* it with my blue suede wedges when I'm feelin particularly adventurous/Rhoda. (Queen. Way more ballsy than MTM.)

++Great title Bebe Rexha. Very "tear in my beer."

++I got a few emails last week about Jamie T climbing the charts. Checked it out and sure, why not embrace the fun energy heard here. Even though zombies were played out years ago, we as a people are in desperate need of a new Halloween song on the radio. (I will amuse myself today by imitating guy's face at :46 while stuck in traffic today. Side note: Will also pronounce it  "puh-hair" next time I buy pears.)

++One time Guy Pearce and Brad Pitt had a baby named Tom Vek.

Dream Pop

I wanted to see what producer Patrik Berger has been up to and I *think* this might be his latest project(?). Sleepy-eyed sisters Miranda and Elektra Kilbey were raised in Sweden and Australia, and are the daughters of one of the members of The Church. Wonder if Julian will dump them for Nikita once he reaches the checkpoint.#fantasyvideocharacterfootball.
