FastTrak

Unnamed
++Wow, I think I set a personal record speed time for money spent after signup using the Wish app. Might be a lowkey publishers clearinghouse type scam,lol. Whatevers, I'm a huge sucker for cheap kitchen gizmos that peel garlic (fkcn garlic and shoelaces are the bane of my existence) or little plastic men that hang from boiling pots for some supposably practical reason. Also hilarious how picky I got when selecting free giveaways. It's the kiddie dentist freebie treasure chest all over again! I think sites like this, depop and Poshmark will give the big stores a run for their money, until they get gobbled up by the whales of the commerce sea. 

++Serkis stuff: Just had a dumb thought (not even clicking on article): Maybe he's really a chimp that's been trained to be convincingly human.

++I heard Vertical Horizon's Everything You Want at the store again yesterday and since I've made it my life's mission to take this song apart (this might be the fifth time I'm writing about it?), this time I zeroed in on the line "He says all the right things." Constructive criticism, maybe work on the high opinion of yourself?

++Sometimes I listen to songs like Ms. Skeptical, like I think Amine might be too young for flip phones. Also the Rihanna song where she's poppin off football stats, I'm like, Hm I don't think so... That'd be hilarious if she was really a huge sports stat head...

JEF World

++Sorta feel like buying one of these, and I don't even golf. Who even am I, anymore?

++Woe is my poor neglected bloggo, victim to my quest for complete world domination. Kidding, sorta.. Let me see if there's anything I can scratch up to keep this thing going...

Hey here's a song from 2014 by Jelani Sei that sounds much much older and somewhat psychedelic and I am ok with that right now.

MORE SOON!

He Who Dares Wins

++Agnes Deynspotting! I don't have any plans to watch this but I love this lady's demeanor and encyclopedic memory for a looks. She must be constantly mentally bookmarking style ideas and she goes about her days.

++Also I won't be watching this Blomkamp short in its entirety but will leave it up here to zoom around and look at the cool paused stills. Those is some clunky ass creatures tho...

++Please, do go on...

Gouda On Ya

++I've always had a certain fondness for The Strokes but didn't realize what an impression (mmmhm) they made on the music scene. From the Lizzy Goodman book to this guy professing his love for them through mandolin on NPR I'm sure even they don't realize what an impact they had...they're probably way too cool to worry about clunky ol' "impacts."

++Well the Terrace House fever has finally been broken and I can go about living my life again! By this I mean screwin around watching random YT videos. I got interested in replicating some of the Japanese recipes on TH (am somewhat of a demon in the kitchen) and it lead me to the most amazing series of videos. I hesitantly clicked on the "Cooking with Dog" thinkin 'Uh oh if that's one of your ingredients u may not wanna post that,bbs.'Think twice and' #petaminute! #Ulintroublenow!

Thankfully the series is named for the dog sits and observes the chef at work. That is one well trained dog. These videos have all my current interests rolled up in one piece of dried nori: Japanese culture, ironic narrator, jaunty music and dogs! I like how they give the dog something to eat to try to pretend like he's talking at the start.

The other fun video I watched was on Stroopwaffels, which you sometimes see for sale in stores in boxes, a sad lifeless replica of the real thing made with treacle, the British word for molasses. (What a vivid visual next time something is described as treacly!) While it's a fun sounding word it just translates to Syrup Waffles. They were originally created by baker wishing to repurpose leftovers/leavings, which next to accidentally coming up with a new flavor is one of a cooks favorite things to do.

Quickies

++I mean, technically any conditioner can be a leave-in conditioner.

++Like, who *isn't* attracted to Macron's wife??

++I don't know, maybe if you're making this recipe, "low sodium" isn't at the top of your concerns.

++I like when the audience sounds like it has your-friends-and-your-roommates'- friends-coming-out-to-support-you kind of laughter. [above]

Totally Forgot

..about Glasvegas! This song!

 

Kampai!

 

Sooo I haven't had much to say lately because I've (still!) been so absorbed in my belovedly boring Terrace House and binged/mainlined it so hard that it has fully entered my bloodstream. ...(Longwinded read after the jumpy jump)

++Megan Sue Hicks: Not sure what she's singing about but it's kinda witchy/wiccan and I'm into it.

++Snopes back at it again, ruinin it for all of us.

Quickies

++Checked the SOG email box for the first time in ages and got amused by the name of this band, who recently played Good Room in Brooklyn, where everyone may or may not be green monsters (pic below).

++Media overestimating my interest in the "hot felon."

++I don't know what the rest of it is all about, but I am tired of having patience, too..XXXTentaction.

++I loved her as one of the sons on Mr. Belvedere.
