++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.
++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 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!
++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.
++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."
++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!)
