Following Fish

51QApGS9-VL
++Just like last year everyone was referencing Michelle Pfeiffer, it feels like this year quite a few bands/song lyrics are about King Midas or turning things to gold (Selena, C.R.Jepsen, etc.)

++Great. Now I have a craving for some Statue of Liberty.#suggestible

++Brides of Dracula: I wonder if they'll go with a fish(es) out of water angle on this because that won't really work when nowadays all of us already either look like goth monsters/are dressed like we're attending Burning Man.

++Speaking of which, do NOT tell the sherpa ladies of West LA that the cure to asthma is swallowing a fish whole because that will just add a whole nuther aisle to the health food store.

++It's overused a lot but I still love the expression "what kind of fresh hell" with reference to anything at all. Put that sentence in front of a subject and I will clap my hands and exclaim, "why yes, that IS hellish!"

++I've been super happy for the success of my bbs Sylvan Esso. They're the strangest blend of quiet and funky. Intelligent to boot, though that could be disputed given that I often have a hard time understanding what she's saying. Something about being covered in soup?

People Changing Around Me

++Smh, laughing to not cry at how bonkers busy I am today. So how about a placeholder with two from Painted Palms. Yah, that fits the freneticism just fine.

Not the Video

Large
++Always stuff goin on in "the Quad!"

++Perhaps, I'm the only one who keeps tabs on these things but Serj Tankian has gots him a beautiful wife and lives in New Zealand. Go Happie Serj.

++So, I'm going to do my best to try to post new music this week despite the fact that all I'm listening to is Mary J. Blige's Sweet Thang for no good reason. (That guitar riff is still pure unspoilt honey.) On that note, here is something from strange wilds. Dood how I wish I had hung onto all my dresses from the 90s!

Quickies

CNO4jXVUAAE_KqA
++Fun way the Internet has seeped into my real offline life: items in my planner that I'm undecided about are followed by "or nah?" #winning.

++Unlike most of my friends, I've never been a big ANTM watcher so in this commercial when this chick strides into the room ackin like I should know who she is, it kinda cracks me up.

++I suspected it all along.

++I'll give anything a try when someone tweets something like this.

Still Holds Up

CNUQqcKWcAAJffQ
++Do the Pretty girl scarf scarf scarf. Do the pretty girl scarf scarf.

++Heh, still the same group of about 20 people influencing all of media for the larger part of 10 years now. Such a small small circle. If one of them flinches/sneezes or brings in a new idea the whole world buckles for a few seconds.

++Who's the guy with the creepo voice who narrates the Queen of Earth trailer? I am a big scaredy cat baby who heard just a few seconds of his voice and I'm like "I'm OUT!" Just like I got a few comments deep into the Salad Fingers videos on You Tube and said "Peace!!" Not even gonna link to that sh-t. (Shudder.)Also, is it me or does Katherine Waterston always seem to be an apparition in her roles? She might just be a scary hologram for all u know.

++Yo, I was gonna slap Sam Sparro's latest track up here because, Sam Sparro! 'Memba him? Throwback! But I'm going with the old instead. How he finds time to do all this and run the mall pizza places boggles the mind. (Pretty sure I made the same joke, like [holy s!] 7 years ago.)

 

This Is All I Do

2013-hobbit

++QT sketches and a humble site, in general by Omar Noory.

++I'm sure it ain't got nothin' on my CVS.

I have those same sandals. (Everyone has those sandals these days.)

In the Waves

++I would wear her outfit today.

++Ahh, the hardest role of them all for an actor: to be human.

++Not crazy about the term, but I get it.

++Today's Pick: How pure is this lady's voice? Nice contrast against the thick air of the backing music.

Quickies

++I've got a bit of an inventor's streak and have been on a creative tear of sorts lately. How the wood and duct tape has been flyin creating prototypes and what not. (Duct tape, I Love You.) Between that and working on perfecting my Jerry Stiller impersonation, I say whatever additives the corporations are injecting into the environment are definitely working out for me.

++Let's listen to some Kraftwerk today, try not to dance with our brooms.

Lunch Poems

++Seems like it's acceptable to be openly hostile towards Geminis on the Internet. The ones I've known have been ok? They need to form a movement like The Gingers once did....galvanize, etc.

++Total subtweet.

++Limosines: Pretty much anytime someone uses the modern day shortcut disclaimer ",um,"...you KNOW I got to look that up. Why oh why did I look that up.
