16 Parkside Lane


++Re: the final line in this trailer..uh oh that's gonna be a bad Uber review. ("I guess I'm not a millennial" she whispered to herself while browsing but not clicking on any of the article headlines.)


++Well world news is a mess and I am crazy busy yet here I am (hineni!) still finding time to look at Wendy Stevens purses and William Henry money clips of course...Ooh ahh purrrdy!


++Speaking of news just noticed this past month the sudden use of the phrase "dog whistle" everywhere. Despite the context I'm a sucker for evocative imagery...

++Was watching the video for Get Lucky and lol'd at the comment "I almost flipped my crap when the figures started moving near the middle of the video." Haha. Also there is much affection for the summer of 2013 which I too remember fondly.

++Once U find out, let a sister know.

++Thomas Krestchmann has quite the trivia section on imdb. And likely an ax to grind with one Seth MacFarlane, probably. I've swam in del Toro's waters for an afternoon and  frankly it surprises me he knows who Seth MacFarlane is...

++Vehicles used to fly around a lot more back when people got "stoned" in songs.

Barely Speaking

Guess I'll get a jump on tomorrow...

++Got a card just for yoo, Fr. Jarm Marsty! Smooches, SOG.

++While others balk Jeni's like, "High Fructose Corn Syrup welcome here"...probably, I don't know...

++Was looking around at dentists and Miley's wears sneakers and recommends Sonic Care.

++A beaker you say? This is some Breaking Bad sch-t. Ain't go no time for a beaker in the morning.

++Cracking wise aside, just like I was more alarmed about Venezuela than N. Korea the thing that most alarmed me from yesterday's events is that few people are paying attention to Stephen Marche's observations on Terry McAuliffe's handling of the militias and the larger issue of gun control. People are looking in the wrong direction.




++You can do it, guy!

++Ever since I read about Jayne Mansfield all I can see is the  Mansfield Bar on big rig trucks whenever I drive around. It's a little like a gruesome never ending Highway Bingo.

++I haven't watched The Bachelor in forever. The most interesting part of any recent season is that people are still named Dean, apparently?  

++Kinda feelin this LeeLee Haxi song from late year. What'll happen if they up and change the area codes though? It will distort her whole world view!

++I've been thinking of the Euro phrase "on the dole" today, and it sounds so much nicer than government assistance or 'welfare' and I think it is because it partially conjures up a pineapple association. I think I've actually posted about the eyecatching Dole logo before that is similar to this Labor logo. And perhaps I have told the story about how I once unsuccessfully tried to bribe someone to cut in line for a Dole Whip? Disneyland, the great class equalizer. Man, all I do is talk about food anymore...


++This picture of new Clipper Milos Tedodosic suggests he may need a little iron in his diet.

Team 10


Oh man, this day!!

++Up and coming actress Anya Taylor-Joy, soon to star in M. Night Shymalan's Glass has the most interesting facial structure...

++The exclamation point on Aronofsky's Mother(!) makes it seem like every Tweet and tweeter is so excited about it!

++Wonder if I'll ever get the chance to publicly "slam" something or someone. 

++Vegan chicharron seems unnatural, against the laws of science and nature, Frankenstein-y.

++Ya caught me.

++Everyone has their approach to politics these days, Chelsea Handler's is kinda AYSO coach?

++I'm still tickled that the word salty has made a comeback. This video is basically dissing someone for their inadequate business plan? 

++Yes, the video presents itself plainly but the song starts to heat up at the 2:00 mark. Highly recommended (as heard in Armani Fall 2017/18).

Blue Bloods

++Sully: All these years, still looking for something that comes close to the feeling from Orb's Salt, all these years coming sooo close but never quite there.(above)

++Hm. Slogan needs a little fine tuning. Why did I think that Haribo was a Japanese company?

++Robert Sean Leonard always struck me as the kind of guy who had a secret he wasn't letting you in on, damn him!

Franklin is strongly reminiscent of another storm that formed in the same area in 2012: Ernesto. Franklin is forecast to make landfall over the Yucatan at almost the exact same location, date and hour as Ernesto.


++Idk, maybe don't keep telling Franklin how he doesn't measure up to Ernesto? Way to stoke a rivalry.

Tijuana Makes Me Happy

++Here's a little something from Fussible, one of the projects of the Nortec Collective, which may sound like the name of sci-fi dummy corporation but was(and is) a sound created by creatives from Baja combining Tambora and Nortena music dating back to '99.

++Always wanted my toilet to look like da club...they need this at my favorite Korean BBQ place where everything is blue neon.

++Misread this as (Horror, intentional) at first and was like, oh good it wasn't an accident.

++I got nuthin against satellite radio but one of my favorite things in the world is commercials for local towns and communities that all take on a certain similar flavor specific to that region. I love the conversational commercials of Cape Cod where it's usually two people softly talking to each other (one explaining something to someone else) and how when you go out to the desert here in Cali people in commercials are hawking things specifically cater to "us desert people" who "understand."

++Sure, who doesn't want to think of beetle exoskeletons while eating their corn?

++Lololol. And the hat, what makes this is the hat.

Hall of the Mountain King

++What's this all about?? Cool sign tho.(Update: Sounds fun, it is about a female Tom Sawyer character, has dancers and will star Jason Ritter's wife Marianna Palka).


++I feel like David Spade and Ari Grande got the weird plot lines in this simulation we call life.

++I guess when you go to see Sophie Tweed-Simmons perform sometimes as a bonus her Dad Gene Simmons can be seen rockin out in the audience. Or maybe it's Tommy Wiseau, who's to say.

++Big year for potatoes. Dogs named potato, people being compared to potatoes. Hm.

++It is almost the end of a week that has me FRIED! FRIED, I say!! And the humidity is killing me! Anyway, the only thoughts I am willing to share right now are: 1)"Why don't they make clear soda (or La Croix) cans? That way you can see how much is left inside? 2) Is Jessica Chastain unstoppable, just in general and 3)  I've seen two billboards for Ray Donovan where his face is wrinkled. Is it the billboard paper or is face thrashed on the show, I got no time to either watch or figure this thing out.

Owen Lars

++As someone who favors deep colors, am glad Valentino is bringing back reds and pinks. Will others follow (tiered) suit?

++Been a while since I did a compare n contrast, with a recent cover of The Gun Club's Sex Beat courtesy Katy Goodman and Greta Morgan. Please to listen!:

++I've got a mountain of projects I need to attend to, so of course I've been budgeting my time wisely by watching 30 minute long survival videos (but what if you had no knife?) and seeing what Sharlto Copley is up to...and that is a movie called Gringo which may or may not already be out, who even knows anymore. Cast looks great tho, and hm Joel Edgerton has a brother Nash who is or isn't more attractive? Really depends on the angle I guess.
