Quickies

++Post Smiths sparkling literate guitar pop, you say? With one of the members a total Archie? Signs me up!

++He's just a little guy but I'd say it's a decent accomplishment to have be pictured on Wiki in your bathrobe.

I Am That Girl

InnoGear-100ml-Aromatherapy-Essential-Oil-Diffuser-Portable-Ultrasonic-Cool-Mist-Aroma-Humidifier-with-Color-LED-Lights-Changing-and-Waterless-Auto-Shut-off-Function-for-Home-Office-Bedroom-Room-0-7

++Well I finally became a California cliche and gave into getting a diffuser. I chose the small one above, highly recommended by Amazon and I don't necessarily believe in the "therapy" aspect of the aroma, HOWEVER, the sci fi girl in me loves the way it changes color, making weird parts of my brain tingle whenever I walk in the room.

++I was reading about Rebecca Minkoff's fashion show at the Grove in the LA Times over the weekend and thought it was kind of a novel setting for a runway (The trolley tracks.)

She also was able to draw out a bunch of young Hollywood names and Milck who I remembered from seeing in coverage of the Women's March. I like her striped variation on the classic Baja hoodie,tooooooo.

Blood, Sweat and Bass

++Funniest thing about this video is that these guys are talking about some of the very newest tech and yet they only have one microphone they keep passsing back and forth and Squnto doesn't have an aux cord so he listens to "crusty" old classical CDs in his van. I keed, I keed, you can't help but appreciate Squnto's enthusiasm and passione.

No Such Thing As Sobriety

Rm
++Quit hasslin' me!

++I always hear Brits praising "riddim" and think I understand what they are talking about. Maybe. Shiny jackets comin' back in? Hm. Approved. (Really loving some of these lyrics!)

Iridescent

Candy Floss from HAUS Pictures on Vimeo.

++I know so little about music!

++We got bigger things on our mind these days than pancakes, LA Times.

++Blue Jasmine:I was snoopin' round to see what Sir Ian has been up to lately and while I couldn't find anywhere to view his short titled Edmund the Magnificent (about a pig, apparently)I *did* find this little treasure called Candy Floss also by Haus. Quite engrossing! The lead actress Grace Hogg Robinson looks like Emma Watson's wayward twin and the accents are thick and satisfyingly too sludgy to understand (which I love). But the real star is the direction and use of color in lighting. Sure it was probably mostly naturally occurring light but I like to think they had a frantic, master gel man on hand.

Callahan In the City

++Absinthe Makes The Heart Grow Fonder: Wow, this song is quite pretty in its simplicity. More on John Callahan here

Snackbars_horizontal_nuttybuddy-jb51qp

++Update: lol, people are SPENT today.

++I think I've mentioned before my occasional love for the kinda nast and lowbudge Little Debbie's Nutty Bars. Well a few a weeks ago they up and changed the name to Nutty Buddy (NAAAAHH,thumbs down), without nary a "Now with a new name" label as a headsup. You can't just pull sh-t like that after 20some years..reminding me of the time Ace Hardware gaslighted me by changing "helpful hardware man" to "hardware folks" to be more PC. This is for anyone out there searching to see if they're right. Fight the power!

In My Stroll

0119e99b528eb89300b9cddbce51b3fb

++Would love to live in your world for a while, Veronika Kalacheva. Any Airbnb's for that destination?

++Kind of jealous that I'm not black and can't use the phrase "I am not your negro" like with friends and stuff.

++Guess I'm on a disco kick lately for whatever reason....THANKS' 404'll wake you up, that's four-of-four sure.

Quickies

In which she speaks in all sentence fragments:

++Asgeir: Very Mt Kimbie-ish with his voice as one of the sound effects. (Indecisive ending: Booo!)

++tdoyle: "Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!" (Is it too late to become a cheerleader?)

++Anyone done anything with "A reptile disorder" or "Oedipal arrangements"? If not, what do's I win?

++Fresh Air reviewed mah boy George Saunders' latest novel about Lincoln's son in limbo and noted that it's only possible weakness with today's aversion to blending fake and facts is how he took liberties with footnotes (a common practice)...and it was the classiest sounding shade I've ever heard. U want scorched earth burns, go JK Rowling.

++I've never seen Fences but every commercial I hear in passing sounds like this (paraphrasing):

"Well WHAT ABOUT ME?"

"Yeah, well WHAT ABOUT ME?"

Call Me Mule

++Never saw this movie and it looks like my kinda scene. My husband mistakenly(?) said Jill Clayburgh was in it, which would have given me an opening to share my Jill Clayburgh story but not today, I guess!

++Doesn't seem too happy about this latest modeling gig.

++Daily Mail bewildered: "These guys were obviously expecting a milder winter."

++As a POC I'm always a little put off by how closely it resembles the acronym POS.

 PhoenixLights2017_Phase02_web

++Phoenix Lights poster featuring less UFO references than in the past, which I would totally go whole hog on...or at least give the kids a giant emerging Alesso head to trip out to...

Only continuing mystery to me, as I've mentioned before, is how Vince Staples is not a country singer.
