'i'm with the band..'

I have a weakness.. It's called rss.
I'm subscribed to all sorts of pages, mainly really poor ones.. A few (and by a few I mean a lot) of these pages are ones that feature upcoming/lesser known indie bands. In the beginning I read those religiously but now I just sort of skip them, cause let's face it, there's a lot of crap out there.
Today I decided to actually read one of these articles and check out one of those featured bands, and with the lowest expectations possible I followed the link to their YT channel and pushed the tiny 'play' button on one of their videos. I must say I was positively surprised.
The band is Said the Whale and the song is 'This City's a Mess'.

It'll make you smile (and possibly dance), so check it ooooout!

Okay, I might be a year or so late on this one, but hey, this video is bound to improve your Sunday slightly (and make the world a better place in general).

You're ever so welcome.

come on.

Whilst researching for a paper on Edward Hopper I came across this quote:
Hopper and Hemingway, we might conclude, both have a penchant for modernization by conservative means. This would seem to be part of the reason for their success. However, it would be mistaken to overstress the parallels between the two. Bullfighting, for instance, did not appeal to Hopper at all.
WTF is that? What does bullfighting have to do with either art or literature?? Perhaps, I should pick my sources more carefully.

space is delicious.

So, most of you probably know already, but for those of you who haven't heard it yet: I've like been to space.
And I mean it was ok, I guess.. But when I got back people just went like totally crazy.. I guess you all like wanna see the pictures and stuff, right?

You know I was like 'seriously, you don't need to take my picture.. it's just like outer space you know, it's like nothing..' but then they were all like 'OMG you've like totally just travelled with the speed of light through far off galaxies and stuff you're like gonna be like totally famous, like zomg!' and then I was like 'whatever, it was like no big deal'...

It's true.

don't ever settle for it.

settle for 'extraordinary'
settle for 'amazing'
settle for 'mind-blowing'
settle for 'fantastic'

or maybe even 'great',

but what ever you do, don't ever settle for 'nice'.

Le trip.. (part uno, perhaps?)

I've never been particularly proud of my Photo Shop skills.. However, that will not stop me from sharing these wondrous pictures with you. This is a tiny and VERY exclusive selection of the cheesiest moments from my trip to the States.

The lovely ladies with whom I went.. We're cool and we know it, obviously.

At Simone's in the East Village - the most brothel-like bar/café I've ever visited.. I'm so coming back to that place.

Need I say more?

Things worth knowing about me #1: I have a secret UPS truck fetish. It's true. I think it's the combination of brown and yellow.. hot.

Road tripping in a rental car from DC to NYC to watch some hockey game at Madison Sq. Garden - "Well, hello there Mountain Dew"!

At previously mentioned hockey game... Apparently I am a Ranger?! Oh well, at least they sold hats and alcohol. ("Great game!")

Yours truly, doing her laundry at a LAUNDROMAT(!!!) whilst having breakfast (aka coffee).

Two camera whores way too self absorbed to even notice each other's cameras (wait, did someone say white aviators?)..

It's true. I really do.

Really, it was great. I met amazing people and I kinda fell in love with NYC.
