Shroom Fairy

++This is so much better than his song "Net Worth." YMMV.

++I know I am months too late on it but tied with the two guys reacting to the Lil Dickey song my fave funny thing of the year thus far has been the Childish Trumpino Red Bing song. Sure song is ruined forever but really, is it??

++Call Me David: So is he the murderer or the perp? Seems like the kind of movie imma check out.

Rejected Jokes's been a while since I'd checked in with Mexican Summer and am buying what they are serving!

++Ugh, why is absolutely everything happening on the weekend of July 8-->9?? Unfair-sees.

++Doy..All this time I thought the sound from my childhood I thought of fondly was the Moog when it was actually the Fender Rhodes!

++If I was some rich vapid reality star I would do a off-side candid interview about how my rooms might be empty but they're decorated better than so and so's. (Always create a feud if you want to keep your job.)

A Dance of Sugar and Cream

Please for you to meet, Alexei Ratmansky. 

I just read this piece in the New Yorker about a production he's put on for ABT based on Richard Strauss' Whipped Cream. With costumes by Mark Ryden.

Basically the story is about a little boy who gets sick from eating too many sweets and hallucinates about pastries and big headed chefs, and as someone who loves both food and music (and some things surreal), I am pretty sure I will end up seeing this at some point...

Here's the inspiration:

Chinese Whispers


++Beth Ditto was on NPR just now talking about the popcorn shirts they sell at Walgreens, and I had no idea what she meant...thanks Innnannet!

++Kinda zen koan-ish...

++After reading Phil Collins' take on arguably his most popular song I quizzed my husband if he knew what Chinese Whispers were (never having heard the term before), and he said, "probably one of those weird British colloquialisms." Pretty much.

Always Will Be

++Amazing how hilariously dated this video is...from the clothes to the hallway light fixtures all the way down to her crush. What a beauty she was. Fun fact: Dido's son is named Stanley.


++Dios mios, this day is a total sh-tshow, however I want to kind of bookmark these links for my own personal reference later. You know... for when life has meaning again? There's never not a good reason to avoid work.

SO! Long story long. I was watching the trailer for the follow up to Life Is Strange, that I talked about yesterday and got mildly hypnotized by the refrain.... above. Specifically the phrase "I feel numb in this kingdom." And hey whaddaya's a song by Daughter, who I may or may not have promoted some lifetimes ago. Anyway, here's THAT video...

 Pretty hypnotic in and of itself, no?


It is called NUMBers and is part of a video trilogy based on the short stories of staring-into-your-soul Stuart Evers. That can't really be his book, right? You know what would be super cool is if each chapter was a cigarette. #intoit.

Anyway, all three videos are joined by a red coat, apparently. I will consume all this later at some point...and the film team that worked on these have also collab'd on this Neil Gaiman series. The end. Back to work! UGH! Waaah.


++Aww I just love the repartee between Kidman and Ewan here. The good stuff starts halfway through when they reminisce about their heady Moulin Rouge days. They're both excellent listeners (tho I give Ewan the slight edge). I particularly like their approaches to failure...Kidman talking about how hard it is to challenge yourself when you've done so much and are of a certain age. And #relatable when E talks about his affection for the movie he directed that was only seen by "18 people." Sometimes when you create something you loved you wish it would have touched more people but are happy that it exists even if few know if its existence.

Crank Up the Bright Eyes

++Would love to hear a snark-off between this narrator and the TMZ guy.

++Just doodled the Souls of Mischief logo. May be regressing. #Alzheimers.


+++Maaaan, if I was Cherelle I would don the editor hat and take out the word "whiny" all on my own. That's just disrespectful.

++Huh, as an active person I often eat on the run and today, perhaps a first, I have misplaced a sandwich. #roguesandwich#wheredatgo?#therewillbestench. (Also, as a busy person, I F-CKS with a cute tote bag. Give me utility or give me death. Also style.)

++Can't remember if I posted this video above already...pretty much every comment is some take on Harry Potter. Poor Harry Potter.

++Speaking of wiks: Last week I was thinking how weird it is that the word nazi is in Ashkenazi and was like ((((whoa))))) then I met someone who one upped me and introduced me to the idea of the Khazarian Conspiracy, which is kinda meh as far as conspiracy theories go. Far more amusing to me is that there is something that calls itself RationalWiki. And their standards are "nosebleedingly high!" In that case I'll see myself out...

++For a second, as my boy approached the stage, I nervously thought "will my boy be able to hang??" [My boy was able to hang.]
