the Pink Mountaintops – “Cold Criminals”

Hey Robin – how’d you get into stoner rock?

Hell if I know. All I can figure is it’s some combination of influences from Jason and Amanda. We’ll get back to handclaps and la la las soon enough, I’m sure.


but you, my bombazine doll

When I’m sitting in a parking lot, like I was last night, wanting to rip my heart out of my chest and throw it on someone’s doorstep, it’s good to know that I have friends that I can call who, at a moment’s notice, will have me sitting in their living room with drinks already made. So I can bawl my eyes out and let the franticness release somewhat.

I haven’t had friends nearby – physically and emotionally – like this in years.

oh, my pretties

It’s that shopping time of year again, of course. And among all the presents I get to accumulate for other people, I have a lovely little sum of money from my mother to spend only on myself. I’m wondering if I will blow the whole thing on wool thigh-highs and striped kneesocks and more socks and garters from Sock Dreams and (for once) attractive panties. On the other hand, word has got around that Topshop now ships to the USA….and holy crap –

cutest skirt, maybe cutest ever
freakishly adorable dress
another lovely dress (though I wonder how the lack of a waist will look on me)

And then of course, there are sharp clothes from Ben Sherman, like this fetching skirt and this perfect striped sweater. And Fred Perry has got an AMAZING knitted polo shirt with a delicate feminine collar that I have been coveting for weeks now.

But I DO NOT need sweaters and skirts, I DO NOT need sweaters and skirts, I DO NOT need sweaters and skirts, I DO NOT need sweaters and skirts…but maybe I need a dress. :)

Serena Maneesh – “Sapphire Eyes”

– solid, pounding drumbeat
– unintelligible, breathy vocals
– tambourine!
– crescendos galore

This is a year of long, rambling songs, and it’s been fun.
