Come With Me by Kongos

So I watched the trailer for Holy Motors–which I am now desperate to see–and heard this absolute gem. Possibly the best use of an accordion ever, thank you. The song is catchy as hell, the combined sound is amazing, and the vocals are that perfect scratchy-rawness that makes me want to paint my nails red … Continue reading

Maria : A Love Story With Tattoos

I have a request. I’ve been fascinated by tattoos for a long while. I’ve been drawing on my skin for years with gel pens, Crayolas, Sharpies—anything that could leave a decent mark. I’ve spent cumulative hours digging into my skin with cheap Bics and ballpoints, trying to eke out some sort of shape. My father … Continue reading

Another Music Post – Gearing up for Finals

I saw a prompt asking what song has been stuck in my head recently, and what it says to me. The first thing that comes to mind is a song my roommate showed me. She remembered that I’m a fan of Emilie Autumn, and it struck her as something I’d find interesting. Check out “Two … Continue reading

The Sexual Side Effects – All She’ll Ever Hurt

Facebook recommended this band because I’m a fan of Placebo. So far, I really like what I’ve heard. Give them a listen and see what you think. 🙂

This past Saturday was certainly eventful. It’s a little intimidating to hear just how many festivals are going on in Atlanta at a time–and so close together! Anyway, I started the Saturday fairly early (at least for me) when my wonderfultastic roommate, Miss Tesla, crept in my room to pry me from my mattress. We … Continue reading

I’m Taking the Fire Escape Up to the Roof

As much fun as I had reading Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day as a kid, it’s not always enough to just point to Judith Viorst and say, “That! My life is that, but with more x and y and screaming and less dorky shoes and lima beans and talk of … Continue reading

It’s a Fromata–Hold it longer than you oughta.

I got my driver’s license at eighteen years old. Pretty late, I know, but after ramming my mother’s car into the side of her office building in what was, quite possibly, the worst attempt at parking (in ahandicapped space) ever, I lost just a little bit of motivation. When I finally got my act together, … Continue reading

Don’t Be the Drum Machine. Play it in Versus.

“Did you hear what they said? That rock n roll is dead? Yeah, it’s like a zombie–it’ll dig itself back up again.”        – “Internet Killed the Video Star”  The Limousines   I don’t listen to the song much any more. I keep finding more and more beautiful noises to line my nest with–because that’s … Continue reading
