When The Sex Turns Cruel

The fools come out to play...like skeletons ever so pretty.

The Business of Crushes

They're called crushes for a reason you know?   Like little commercials for your emotions.

They hit you hard when you least expect it with a momentum typically reserved only for the most zealous of love affairs and like any smitten fool you embrace that fragrant scent with religious fervor.  Utterly intoxicated until suddenly without any warning EXHALATION occurs and you're left breathless wondering What the Fuck Just Happened?  

A little shot of lust and epinephrine... a little brush with metaphysical death... a little tumble down that hill.  So what?  You wake up a little bruised, a little bit of vamp blushes your smirk and you hum throughout the day annoying all your coworkers with your sunny I Just Got Some disposition.

Fever Blanket totally understand the perfect blooming crush weather tune... short, sweet and lovely but over too quickly leaving you wanting more more and more.

*Writing and formatting blog posts about crushes kids kind of kills my buzz a bit... just saying.  Also crushes really make me want to take up watching lighthouses for a living.  Or some sort of totally hippie endeavor like weaving a couples love forecast on an actual loom or molding their nucleic spiritual corporeal clay animal...

Vulva Unicorn

I see Volv Unicon and I think Vulva Unicorn.... whatever that means... and that's a good thing.


Love Your Whore

At the risk of sounding like a cliche... let's get the balance right, shall we??  Time to clear away some cobwebs and open that lock box again.

Fucking wintry Scandinavians and Polish brogues... I'm totally undone now.

Fjögur Píanó NSFW

Today everything is making me cry.  Even LSD lollipops and plonky pianos.  

Sigur Rós always makes me feel.....a pained timelessness, a saudade.  More Valtari videos.

Into the Belly of the Beast

Convergent luxury, beat resonation, sultry memories and quickenings. 
Also known as quietly drinking alone and fondly remembering old lovers.  

The Black Angels - The Sniper at the Gates of Heaven from their 2006 album Passover.

This track is so fucking hot. 

Kitty A

Skywalker: Sounds just like Jonny Greenwood
Me: Totally reminiscent of Radiocat's Kitty A

We're dorks and it's awesome.

Just Another Reason

Natasha Khan, one of my favorite twisted delightful freaks.

Look at this little gem she posted today on her Twitter....blood, love, tongues and tempests.
Happy climes indeed.

Here It Comes

The place and the time we knew things could go wrong.   

Otherwise known as that phase of knowing you're really starting to like someone and you begin to feel a little bit anxious that they won't like you as much.  And maybe just maybe you also kind of just a little bit miss the quietude of solitude.  But only a little bit because let's face it, you also kind of get off on being just a little bit of a Drama Queen.

The Soul of the Knife

Sometimes I have this dream," the young man in the wheelchair said.  His voice had a strange echo to it, as if it were rising from the bottom of a cavernous hole.  "there's a sharp knife stabbed into the soft part of my head, where the memories lie.  It's stuck deep down inside.  It doesn't hurt or weigh me down - it's just stuck there.  And I'm standing off to one side, looking at this like it's happening to someone else.  I want someone to pull the knife out, but no one knows it's stuck inside my head.  I think about yanking it out of myself, but I can't reach my hands inside my head.  It's the strangest thing.  I can stab myself, but I can't reach the knife to pull it out.  And then everything starts to disappear.  I start to fade away.  Only the knife is there - to the very end.  Like the bone of some prehistoric animal on the beach.  That's the kind of dream I have," he said.
-Haruki Murakami, Hunting Knife

Don't Mind Me

I'll just be bouncing along to Bjork videos for the rest of the afternoon.

Completely Offensive & Therefore Totally Hilarious

Well... hello there Cutebuster Keaton...

I'm hungry and this experimental video Flatten by artists Hugo de Kok and Kay van Vree exploring the shapes of flattened food is not helping.  Actually it's quite a charming concept when you think about it... what happens when you squish food??  Let's reduce these obtuse pretentious conceptual art movements to their most innocent base denominator and explore something as simple and pure as curiosity with shapes.  Remember when the sheer joy of creating the perfect curve could consume your brain?  I can't help but delight in that memory as well as think of my infant-self smashing eggs, pancakes, mud and blocks willy nilly just because it felt good.  Or if you prefer, as my coworker said, "It's kind of what would have happened if Dadaism actually did something."

The Loving Bitch

Maybe someone sometime this year can explain to me why they love the Bitch, the Vamp, the Harsh Mistress....

They really should be careful with their wishes.  

I know I've been tolerant until now, but here comes a warning... 
There's a very clear line that I am drawing
and if you cross it...

Adversely Adverbed

Synchronicity perpetually and irritatingly amazes me... something pops into your life at precisely the right moment.  If only all of life's moments were as gloriously simple and accommodating as the modern convenience of the light switch.  Boys especially.

This cover of ABBA's Knowing Me, Knowing You by How Do I has me reeling into a dream.

Never Leggo The 80s

Don't try to tell me you don't fuck off at work by watching videos of some of your favorite 80s songs made using only Legos. I know you do.

Tears For Fears - Everybody Wants To Rule The World

The Cure - Lullaby

We Felt Like A Miracle

Ho hum, I've heard it all before.  Neither an apple or a worm, you sit on your toadstool above it all and regard the world with scorn.

Les Couleurs

Smitten eyes, brain and heart... I don't want to slow down, I don't want to ever stop.  Winston Chmielinski's work perfectly captures this ephemeral storm of quixotic emotion.

Recognize this one?  It's the cover to The Pains of Being Pure at Heart 7" Say No To Love that I posted in an infinitely less than smitten phase of my life here

And here is one of my FAVORITE videos to one of my FAVORITE songs of ALL time.  Now you know my innerness.

Thanks Brooke!

Hey, guess what?? It's Friday, I'm newly smitten, am also 15 days almost nicotine free and fruit flies have a longer attention span than I.
