Today: a quote.

I'm sure I'm supposed to choose something wise and profound. But I'm not really much of either. However! I was recently amused when both David Lynch and ShitMyDadSays shared words of wisdom within minutes of each other on my twitter feed. I think essentially they're trying to say the same thing? (I recommend reading Lynch first.)

Look inside yourself, my child. )

Today: Youtube clips.

Honestly, I'm not really into viral videos. However, I love youtube for nifty interviews and performances I can't see anywhere else. But MOSTLY, I love youtube for music videos.

So. You get a bunch of music! I will try for a variety! None of these are new or amazing, just things I love and watch often. I am mostly entertaining myself here. :)

From Jackson Browne to Electric Six )

Edit: Oh alright. You get a non-music vid too. We watched this ep of The IT Crowd last night. I want my own Richard Ayoade for Christmas.

I don't really surf the web randomly. I don't have a backlog of super nifty sites. Usually when I find something randomly interesting, it's something someone has sent me, such as this site for dogs with owners who ought to be shot poodle art (the buffalo and the camel are my favorite).

But there are certain things I poke about for when I'm in a surfing mood, and one is design. This site: Cardonizer.com features super nifty business card designs. Boring? Nope! And I appreciate them in particular because I've had to design more than a few, and most clients don't want anything terribly out of the norm. Also because they're one one of the few things that are necessarily printed! Cut-outs, punch-outs, fold-ups, lock picks, see-through, they're all there.

Unrelated! )

Oh! And! I have an appointment for a haircut Saturday. A *real* one!

For today: The Mighty Book of Boosh!



So it's not exactly Dostoyevsky, but it's whole lot of fun. An incredible amount of work went into this thing, it's enormous, weighing in at just over 300 pages! It's like a textbook! Only awesomer and with prettier pictures. Seriously, there are photos and drawings and scans of sketchbooks and type-illustrated song lyrics and stories and some really snazzy design courtesy of Bollo, the gorilla Dave Brown. Also, you learn what really happened to Jack the Ripper. You might be surprised!

Here's a review, far better than mine, and complete with pretty pictures.

St. Augustine )

I just read about Patrick Swayze. He was a favorite in our house while I was growing up. I had a particular fondness for Johnny Castle, Bodhi, and Darry Curtis, and I could probably still act out every scene of Dirty Dancing, playing all the parts and singing all of the songs. Weirdly, he was part of my childhood.

Today, a song! Wolfmother is releasing a new album next month. It's only been 3 years. I dig the new single, New Moon Rising.
