"I mean it's the nineties!"

Jeremy reminded me of how relevant this song is still today...

I used to think Neil Hannon was such a babe, still do...

Slow and Steady Wins the Race

My friend Mary's blog is pretty cool. And her Still Life Installation was pretty cool too (from what friends told me). Too bad I'm too late in posting it but I truly feel that everyone needs some Slow and Steady in their life (especially me)...

This is how I feel today. Insane. Crazy. About to snap! Out of control and no one is stopping me! Friend said it's Mercury Retrograde and I keep fighting it. I guess I'm supposed to be planning and getting things in order and not communicating or trying to resolve things with other people. I don't know if I can be patient enough until September 29th. Do I roll with the punches? Time-Out...

Unfortunately, I couldn't find anything more recent.

But my favorite was Ghost Mouth...

I went to see Girls last night. I loved it. I haven't been this excited about seeing a band live in a very long time. I stood in front the whole time, took arty pics (what an atrocity) and swayed my head back and forth to each song (and freaked out to "Hellhole Ratrace" and "Lust for Life"). Even a dumb albatross of a girl (who moved like she was on E) spilled red wine on my virginal white BOY (Band of Outsiders) dress * didn't make a damn difference.

There's something about stripes... I couldn't take my eyes off Christopher.

His timing was something to see... How many times did Christopher jerk his left knee up? Like it was some kind of uncontrollable, endearing OCD tick...

I'm growing out my hair again and am dedicating it to Girls.

* (The dress is all cleaned now.)

September is the new January...

The fires are waning... The air is cooling and becoming more bearable. I can go back to the hills for my hikes again... My favorite thing to do is to listen to music (really loud) during these hikes. And I'm in my own little world. It's invigorating and it clears my head (which so clearly needs clearing).

New MAJOR releases this season: The Clientele, Atlas Sound, The XX, Girls and Taken by Trees ...

(Non) Seasonal Music

If I like a song, I'll have it on repeat until I'm satisfied (which could take ages). Click to go to their site for a listen. All gorgeous. All essential. Daily staples.
What can I say? I'm trendy.

There's nothing I wouldn't say to you...

Ask and you shall receive Jeremy. Here's the track you requested. 1993 was a pretty good year for us I reckon...

Doods dig Girls, girls dig Girls... Yes (!) Girls do rule... a lot!

"Sometimes you've just gotta make it for yourself.
Sometimes Sugar, it just takes someone else.
Sometimes you've just gotta make it for yourself.
Sometimes Baby, you just need someone else."

Yosemite... (Please do not feed the animals)

Yosemite in high season is like going to Disneyland on a Saturday.

(Ma, can we go home now?)

Apparently there was a black bear sighting (and subsequent gun shots echoing throughout the night), a rock avalanche and a forest fire. Hectic.

The calm before the storm...

Sequoia... Where The Wild Things Are

I'm so Californian.

I went to see the giant trees in Sequoia... Photos can never show how it truly feels to be in the middle of a grove of the world's largest living things... The empyreal hush of thousands of years of amassed forest duff consumes you to the core. Sacred land.

The Quiet American

I was here last Thursday. I wished I can remember the name of this bookshop. It's on 16th St, btw Guerrero and Valencia in the beloved Mission of SF. I found one of my favorite books, The Quiet American by Graham Greene and couldn't resist buying it for Richie.
