Quickies

39181-45__36642.1513447749

++It's still wet and soggy in these here parts so why not some music to match the mood? (Who are we kidding, I'm still listening to Jelly on repeat by Soyeon and another top hit that I won't name right now, of which two people have said to me "I guess words don't matter anymore." This song below was also from 2017, just like Jelly, a sleeper year for music? Maybe.)

++I saw this tee shirt over the weekend, that I'd never seen before and the absurdity of it made me laugh. I did a double take wondering if it was a lookalike and I'll be damned..it was real! Or more likely a knockoff of the thing that was once real. Besides words, maybe nothing matters and nothing is real anymore lol. Is that a famous shirt? I'm always so busy these days I can't keep up. Like yesterday making Starlord jokes without ever having seen any Guardians of the Galaxy movies...insert usual reference here.

Extremely Adaptable

++Will always jump at the opportunity to throw the phrases “five fingered discount” and “dark arts” into casual conversation if it’s in the right context and usually only to myself, for my own amusement and under my breath, if we’re being honest.

++I have two thoughts on Katherine Schwarzenegger's engagement : 1) She must be happy to be shortening that super long name. What if she hyphenates! Don't hyphenate, gurrrl. 2) I don't know comics but if she's marrying the Star-lord and is the daughter of Conan the Barbarian, who as far as I know isn't part of any kind of "universe", might this create a spinoff opportunity for future children or a genetic joining of narrative worlds/trees? Sheesh, I've got work to do...["Procrastination.."]

++For all my huffin and puffin about the movie I never did get around to seeing Mid 90s but was hearing about Na-Kel Smith, looked it up on imdb and there he is again, my busy archnemesis Lucas Hedges, dagnabbit!!

++Been in a mostly aughts pop-punk phase of listening lately for reasons unknown and came upon this really well done video by Bring Me The Horizon that I admire from a dark graphic arts standpoint but only was able to watch halfway thru before craving sushi and those lil black strings they put on sushi which turns out are just seaweed, who knew. Is it possible that every ingredient in sushi when you trace it back to it's elemental organic chemistry roots is made of seaweed, even the fish? Gettin' kooky here better wrap this bad boy up. Anyway, HOO-rah for bands that still take the time to put thoughts into their videos.

It's Real

++Goinstaget a headstart on my StSSunday because my day is booked solid tomorrow. Fuming emoji! DC's Ex Hex has a new one coming out in the very near future with a lead single that's a mix of Tom Petty and the Ronettes to my ears. Quite boppy but digging around I found I love the drama from an earlier song by one of the trio Mary Timony, above, which could be an A24 movie? Hm. Wait for the pleasing "drop", Janice.

She's Out of My League

++"Everyone in LA either looks like Ali G or Joe Walsh."

++I thought I was down with dudespeak until Alex Jones was brought up and I don't know anything about Alex Jones but apparently most men know all about him or have some kind of commentary on the guy? Can't keep up.

Facing The Music

++Like all great things, Steven A.Clark vs Boys Noize is everything old and new all at once. Very 90s Cherry. Might try this at a faster playback speed later?

++Michael Kiwanuka and Tom Misch? DO tell me more.

++Media kind of overestimating my attachment to Sears.

++A few weeks ago went down a super fascinating wormhole about a dangerous hacker's recent activities but got too scared to post about it. #chickensh-t #mamaaintraisednofool

++While it is obviously wonderful that justice is being served, the use of DNA matching in solving crimes is a lil bit of scary frontier, technologically and privacy-speaking. Amazing how close they got with the composite pix to the real thing as well. I'm sure Justin Theroux breathed a sigh of relief when they caught the real guy. He and Mark Ronson are like [clink] with their champagne flutes.

++Yes I know they couldn't have named the show Bad Girls because that would have been too obvious, still, a missed opportunity to have used this for the theme song. One can fantasize about what might have been.

Winston Forever

++Ooh boy this day is quickly slippin away from me. Just another one of my usual placeholders for today, then. I finally got caught up with Jack Whitehall's show with his Dad Michael, the second series of Travels with Dad(?) last week. I thought they couldn't explore any more territory in their relationship than they already had in the first season but I'd venture to say this season was even better. As much as I loved it I do hope it is the last. The British more than Americans usually know when to say when as far as these things go. My favorite parts of this latest season were the visit to Chernobyl, now a tourist attraction and the younger Whitehall's excitement at meeting one time Eurovision champs, Sunstroke, above, and Sax Guy in particular.

Team Love Don't Want No Hate

++Camila's totally me at this old incredible Ciara performance, lol.

++Reading about these two dummies fighting, the voice of the ghost of Prince suddenly comes to me speaking words of wisdom: "It's d-ck vs d-ck in the World Series of Lame."

++Like, lots of Range Rovers but not a single Taki chip.

++StsS: Yessss! Finally found those "inferno" escalators I once was looking for in a previous post’s picture after being reminded of them by  this tweet. Studio 54’s Ian Schrager is behind this hotel that opened in ‘17. The look of the rest of the place is just ok but oooh those escalators.

Aaand as has been known to happen, that Paper tweet lead me to these two songs for today. I want to say BEP samples Dengue Fever here, but who knows where they originally got that sample? Commenters are clamoring for a Soyeon/CL duet..CL does a decent job stepping in for Fergles here.

Go Crazy, Get Stupid

++Seriously, how did I not know that Van Morrison sang G.L.O.R.I.A. His discography is immense and intense. My only criticism is that he should've used the sound of a real foghorn sound effect in "Into the Mystic." Ha, imagine. Here young Bobby Flay looks mildly annoyed with whatever noise they're trying to use to simulate the foghorn.

++Many times, I don't get around to posting not because I have nothing to say but because TOO much is zippin' through this little acorn of a mind* that I just never get around to writing about. Like when Penny Marshall died they showed an old Today Show interview where she and Cindy Williams are explaining what "Schlemeel, Schlemazel" means and Marshall said (paraphrasing) a Schlemeel is a dummy or goof who trips and falls (then Williams chimes in) and a Schlemazel is someone who is even dumber who trips and falls over the Schlemeel. Lol, the explanation and the comic timing even in the description itself was just like the dynamic of the show and the two of them.

Speaking of language, I found the comments under this Wikitongues video to be fascinating (also this lady is adorable!). My husband** laments the loss of comments on imdb every few weeks and I tend to feel the same way where sure, you have to wade through the usual toxic landfill of the majority of human observation (the reason imdb had to close it all down) to get to the good comments but when most people take the time to contribute, especially on videos of this nature, they have worthwhile thoughts...for example the natural connections between some of the northern Euro countries' dialects that you wouldn't expect to exist. Unrelated to any of this, I'll still take Soup to Nuts over "From the eggs to the apples." What? Just doesn't have the same rhythm..

The Victims

Just a couple of Fashion placeholders today courtesy Charlie Denis(pictured below) and Star Slinger...

...the second one may be NSFW (just a hunch not yet having watched it..) but who's at work today anyway? All of us, because some of us are, that's why.#connected #stumbleUmightfall[Love the sound and dreamy tone of the "Supermane" refrain. Old and new all at the same time.]
