The Boyfriend

$_1
++I know it's not even summer yet, really but I'm thinking it might be fun to get me some retro satin for winter?

++Been working on a rap lyric that's something like "I make dollas like an amygdala"..it's not quite coming together.

++I just disabled/unsubscribed from a getting some emails from a company and a reply message popped up that said "See you next time!" which seemed hm, a little sexist-ly passive aggressive and coded.

++All shenanigans aside we gotta twofer today! Both songs are slightly older and feature couples giving each other meaningful stares. Have you stared at your loved one today? Meaningfully?

I love the simple sound and the ending to this video by Gabriel Rios. Sure it's a little heavy on the holy but any couple knows that you bond over that one weird thing and in this case, for this couple, it's water.

 

And lol..provocative imagery is so over-used now that the only thing that horrified me in this vid by Samo Sound Boy was the chick threatening to do harm to the laundry. No!Please!! Spare the laundry, lady. Because people? Pfft, dispensable. A good fitting shirt? That's real.

Awesum!

++Director Christopher McQuarrie has worked and continues to stick with composer Joe Kraemer dating back to Way of the Gun, which is a Way Way long time ago, hee hee.(I've never read more divergent opinions on whether a film was great or sucked!)

Pl_JoshuaTreeNP_0348
++I sure hope they've changed the law/policy in California where it's not illegal to do "impromptu" cremations.

++None of you people have everything I want, a la carte, for peanuts.

++Last paragraph of Product Description: "For best results, do not store ice cube tray in freezer."

++Nothing restores my faith in the world more than an enthusiastic comment or reply.

 

++I don't know what to make of this song, but I'll reserve judgment til after about, oh idk, 12-22 remixes?

++You would think that the sound/genre that Small Feet is working has been done to death when oh, that slight bent guitar string twang thing he does with his voice reels ya back in again!

From The Snow Tipped Hills

++Oh me Oh my, this day's been so busy! From the inbox, the Silver Lake Chorus has a self titled debut album coming out on June 16th that will feature arrangements by Teags and Sara, Ben Gibbard and above, is a snippet from "Heavy Star Movin" written by Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd of The Flaming Lips.

Electric Sheep

++So I'm sort of halfway in love with this song by Sturgill Simpson. I say halfway because for some reason something bout the tone of his voice and the arrangement gives me a case of the sads! I do appreciate it's beauty, even if I ain't tryna hear that today. Just gonna set it here and forget it til a rainy day. If you read the comments section of this video you'll find:

1- He's got country listeners all confused by infusing elements of psychedelia

2- The title refers to a Stephen Hawking exercise

3- All roads lead back to Joe Rogan.

Quickies

Man of Mystery
++I wouldn't not read a gossip article dishing on Menswear dog's private life if it came my way.

++Just like David Hasselhoff is huge in Germany, ǝıɥɔıɹ ןǝuoıן has a big following in Arabic countries such as Iraq...where grown men will get "misty eyed" at the mention of his name. Get in where you fit in, I guess.

++For no reason whatsoever I get a kick out of calling her Hamsandwich Guthrie. Starts the day off with a laugh/works syllab-ically.

++Also on the wordplay front..I'm saving this joke to the hard drive..Get ready for a 50 Shades of Gravy joke, Thanksgiving table '15.

++The water sitch is getting weird and speakeasy-ish here in California where waitresses will bring you water if you ask for it specifically but are not allowed to suggest it by law. However! Once one person at the table asks, THEN the server is allowed to ask others at the table if they want some, too.

++I think were he old enough that Waka F. Flame's campaign might have stood a chance??

L O N E R

++Baby Steps: Ok, I got move out of my default nostalgia mode and toggle back into (hope all this tech lingo isn't too getting too thick for some people) and get back into 2014 with a little something from LA's Marz Leon. This is a lil dark and moody for my taste today, though I'm sure someone out there's having a Monday. Leon seems to like S P A C E S between capital letters for the titles of her songs.

Fascinating Statistics

++I found this great statistical post (who knew mosquitos were so deadly!?) while trying to find out if anyone has ever done the hard research to find out the percentage, of those who wander, are actually lost.

++Lol.. Idk what is goin on with me because I had one of my usual info-packed, vaguely irked posts all locked and loaded and ready to go but now all of a sudden all I wanna do is listen to Natalie Merchant chirp in my ear all day long!

Bureau of Wrecklamation

ChinaGittesVerrekijker
++ F-ck. World shattered.

++Speaking of all things shat..I heard a story yesterday about William Shatner's billion dollar Kickstarter plan to run an above ground pipeline (a pipe dream you could say! but you wouldn't be so corny cuz you listen to PBR&B) from Seattle to SoCal to solve all our water problems and thought, huh, much like Larry King...these guys who constantly spout off ideas occasionally hit on something?* So I Googled it and found this before I got bored and started looking up old pix of young, QT Jack Nicholson in Chinatown.

++From the inbox: I got invited to go see Steve Grand at the Bootleg tonight and hadn't heard of him despite 4M views for his All American Boy video. Talented QT..(I'm just gonna use "qt" in every bullet point today.)

++Wonder if dogs could talk, Huskys would say they prefer to be called "big boned." More PC. Maybe that's why she ran away?

Food Network Star

++Meghan McCain tweeted about that old Jennifer Paige song Crush a week or so ago and I've had it stuck in my head ever since. :(

++Joey, Baby: Watch out for Isaac Gillespie of The Due Diligence. His laid back vocal stylings make him ripe for the commercial picking. Although maybe not by Dunkin Donuts. Bandfriends and donuts. Ooh could this be the latest in pastry combos? (I adore the singalong-y, call and response bridge at 2:36 and the way it evolves organically/naturally out of the song.)
