Inspired by Procrastination!

I desperately need to be studying for my History of Modern Architecture Midterm but instead I'm updating the blog. My priorities are clearly in order. Here's a little collage of all the things I want now.

Video Pile-UP

I haven't been inspired in the blogging department lately, so here are some kewlio videos that just might jump start your creative juices! (ew thats actually some pretty gross imagery)

Health - Die Slow
whoaaa ok this video is such a good translation of the song! It's super trippy and bloody and has some seriously fashionable ladies.


The Drums - Surfing
Besides the fact that this song is catchy as FUCK, this video really makes me want to go run out on the beach. In reality I'd probably just be chasing behind these cuties yelling "Hey wait up you guys I just got my board waxed! Did you get that sweater at Opening Ceremony??!"


The Horror's - Mirror's Image
I'm sorry, The Horrors. I kind of ignored you guys and thought you were just a one trick pony. Ok maybe you still are but this video is so nutty and zany that it gets 4 diamonds!!


love y'all!!

Mambo Girl

I recently saw this adorably sincere movie from Hong Kong called "Mambo Girl". It's set in the 50s and its the story of a young girl who everybody loves because she has the voice of an angel and can dance like no ones business. I won't tell you what the big dramatic secret of the movie is because it would spoil it for you, so go out and rent it to find out!

The music is really adorable as well, and I love that she's basically confessing insanity and everyone is just clapping along. Also, watch for the one boy using the chair as a dancing partner! What a bunch of sillies.

Jamie T. is an musician I have known about for quite some time, but just recently have I really begun to appreciate all his work, as opposed to just a few songs I listen to in passing, you know how it is sometimes. But he's great, and his accent fits perfectly with his music & lyrics. I feel like I could really hang out with him. I can just imagine him coming over and then getting shit faced drunk and banging out tunes on my piano all night long.

The first song I heard by him was a cover of Calm Down Dearest (i love the first few moments of that song) I also really love Sheila, Brand New Bass Guitar, but my absolute favorite is If You Got The Money. Here is a b-e-a-u-tiful accoustic version of it that just makes my heart smile whenever I hear it!

Anyway, he has a new album out called Kings & Queens (it's out today, but i got it bootleg over the internet a few days back) Truthfully, I like his first album a lot more, which isn't to say his new album isn't great. My fav. tracks right now are Jilly Armeen, Spider Webs, and Emily's Heart, but I'm going to have to listen to it more in depth.

Here's a kewl video from his new album

Bak 2 Skoolz

Hey kiddies! Ok, so this year I had a very successful (in my opinion anyways) back to school shopping session. I am very proud of what I got and I decided to share my conquests with you (ok that sounded creepy)

I apologize in advance for the crappy lighting. I don't have a lot to work with, but hopefully you can get the basic idea.

STRESSED OUT! kitty tee



The other day I was talking to my friend about things that used to terrify us as children, and she started telling me about the FACES OF BEL MEZ. The story goes that a woman noticed markings on her kitchen floor, which eventually took the form of a face. Her husband put new cement over the floor, but the faces reappeared! Spooky Scary! To find out what happens next, watch the video, and try to ignore the fact that it was narrator by a computer voice.

Next I want to show you a video that personally freaks the bejesus out of me. It might be less scary because of the person hyperventilating (making it sound more like ghostly pornography than a paranormal phenomena) but try and watch this without getting spooked!

And finally, the scariest video ever, The "Are you Afraid of the Dark" intro. I dare you to watch the entire thing with squirming with fear!

Sweet Dreams Y'all!!

Sowwy ):

ok, I really have no excuses for not posting anything. I lay at your feet begging for forgiveness! I have just been a lazy bum.
I had so many plans for this summer which I haven't accomplished. I only read about 3 books (2 of which I had to read for school) I did watch a lot of movies, but my plans to record my thoughts and opinions about those movies feel through after movie number 9 or 10.

And now school is starting in a week. Shit's rough.
Now on an anecdotal note, yesterday I hung out with some friends who I don't go to school with anymore, who live on Staten Island (a.k.a Shaolin) And then they started making fun of me for being a white girl and liking the Wu-Tang Clan (in a playful way...I hope)
Which got me thinking, why is it that people from Shaolin would laugh at me identifying with the Clan, but other people I talk to are fine with it. I don't have an answer. I just think most people from Staten Island are 10 years behind the rest of New York City.

Have fun at skool y'all!
