i tend to devalue celebrities. they might be talented, sure. but god-like status? i don’t know. anyway, i realized how fallible this theory was mere minutes ago.
sasha frere-jones wrote something on his tumblr about how such-and-such blog was the best blog on tumblr. i immediately followed this random blog and spent a long time reading it thereafter. he’s a celeb for nerds but i would pretty much do anything he told me to do ever….
like, hey mina, why don’t you start pogo sticking to work?
i can’t stop repeating these yeezy lyrics in my head!!! (i don’t even get why. they’re not even that good. but i like his flow in this particular part of the song):
"get yr mind baby or get yr shit together/you gon be hot a lil while/ima be rich foreva"
speaking of “deuces,” i got a personal letter from a senior citizen at work today. i will edit this later and provide more examples of what she wrote. for now, i’ll list some stuff i can remember off the top of my head:
"deuces - chris brown ?????"
"kanye west - my dark fantasy ?????"
"i truly hope your gossip girl dilemma was solved!"
"norwegian whispers was beautifully written! you deserve lunch for that!"
oh yeah, and she ACTUALLLY included $5 so i could buy myself lunch. rulerulerulerule.
does the track order of The xx’s album have a distinctly chronological day to night feel?
"intro" and "crystalised" all the way to "night time" and "stars"…seems deliberate. still, "fantasy" is the most hauntingly beautiful of them all i think. i can’t shake this album. i reread sasha frere-jones’ review of it and i NERDED out all over again.
anyway, anyone want to tell me where to find some cool thrifted t-shirts? i’m into t-shirts tucked into a long skirt lately.
oh yeah, and does anyone have extra 4 loko lying around? i desperately want to make 4 loko snow cones (loko-cones)
