Yay Yay

My horoscope this week is awesome. And it totally matches my mood. Go read yours and get astrological insight. Above is a picture of Durga. Durga manifests fearlessness and patience, and never loses her sense of humor, even during spiritual battles of epic proportion. I think we can all admire that. I try to never lose my sense of humor during epic spiritual battles either.

This collection of clothes looks like my version of heaven. It's fabulous. The color and the shapes are so exciting. They look they would look great on real women too, which is rare. I love the second dress...the white one with the gigantic flower. It looks so beautiful. It would make an awesome wedding dress. From the Sartorialist.

Library Love

I really like libraries...and books. So these two posts on Neatorama just made my day. One is about a desk made out of books...I want one. And the other is about how you can spritz yourself with library perfume. Ah. That sounds awesome.

I've been on a sabbatical. But now I'm back. Listening to music. And I have nothing cool to post. Except maybe a little playlist of stuff I am crushing on music wise. I'm getting in an autumnal frame of mind. I want to hear things I've never heard before and more. Ready?

1. Mariee Sioux - Wizard Flurry Home Sweet. Pure. Good.

2. Glasser - Home I can't get enough of this song. It's like candy for my soul. Eat it up.

3. Deerhunter - Helicopter Even my Dad likes Deerhunter. Enough said.

4. Shontelle- Impossible - Ok...this one is super sweet pop. I'm sunk. I love it.

5. Thermals - Never Listen to Me Oh. Yes.

6. Gold Panda - Snow and Taxis This is good to make stuff to.

7.The Microphones - I Felt Your Shape Hmm.

8. Vetiver - The Swimming Song Summer nostalgia.

9. Jeffrey and Jack Lewis - Don't Be Upset Too cute. Too cute.

10. Fruit Bats - When U Love Somebody

This poem is making my day. Go read it. Then go get some really good Jersey tomatoes and eat them. I found this poem here...and I want to eat the recipes.

"Being like going from black and white television to never want to go back."

Oh. My. God. Do you want to cry like a baby right now? Go watch this. It's full of awesomeness. I want to receive "romantic weather forecast notes" every morning. This is pretty much the most romantic love story ever.

Is it just me....?

Or have people tried to convince us to wear capes before? Maybe circa 2001? I don't know. I feel like this feels oddly familiar. Come on can do better. How about bringing back puffy paint sweatshirts? Or scrunch socks? Or you know...Paddington Bear duffle coats? I personally am on the look out for shoes with fringe on them. Please point me in there general direction if you find some.

Nostalgia Strikes

So it's the first day of September. September always puts me in a nostalgic mood. It makes me think about all the Septembers that have come before. I start to remember things I thought I had forgotten. September is like a file cabinet you start riffling through. It is full of old school portraits, old birthday cards, old report cards, and old addresses. It contains musty secrets and startling evidence of how much or how little you have changed. Think about your very first day of school. Do you remember? What did you wear? What kind of backpack and lunch box did you carry? How did you feel getting on that bus and saying goodbye to your Mom? What was it like to enter into the world alone? Did you sink or swim?

And if that really gets you thinking...then head on over to this really awesome website set up by Arcade Fire. You get to harness this September nostalgia and make a music video all about it. I promise. It's like magic. I can say I've never seen anything like it. It's enormously clever. Oh kind of helped them make in the most awesome viral campaign I've ever seen...they kind of want you to download google chrome to view it...but ohhhh...even caught in googles increasingly entangled web (like how are they so damn smart and creative? They are going to rule our lives faster then Steve Job's does now...) it's worth it.
