Kid Sis, like dis.

Kid Sister. Awesome lady. Hot jamz.

This is her first single from her album Ultraviolet and I'm thinking it's going to be wonderful. I am also thinking that I might have my new style inspiration for this coming year.....? Hmm...I think it's about time I hit up the nail salon.


Summer classes/work has been getting me down. Things like this get me through.

Ce jeux excitant, si bon mais si lassant

My new favorite thing to do during work now that I (finally) have speakers is listening to the live performance podcasts on KEXP, a radio station in Seattle. There are tons of bands on there-- Of Montreal, Broken Social Scene, the list of awesomeness goes on and on. You can download them all through itunes or their rss feed, which is seriously helping with the lack-of-concert I have been experiencing lately. It’s kind of sad actually; I even got a little excited when I walked past a marching band practicing, so clearly I am in withdrawal.

Today I discovered this adorable set from Yelle. Seriously, why wasn’t I born French and awesome? It’s so unfair.

"I don't like vampires. I'm going to take a stand and say they're not good."

I love Buffy like no other. I just got the entire series on DVD and it was without a doubt one of the greatest gifts I have ever received. I have been wanting to blog about it, but it is so not relevant and probably boring to freak out about things from 1997. But seriously... so awesome. 

Then low and behold, I saw this beauty on Jezebel today. It is so so brilliant. Buffy is so bad ass.

What my summer has become

What ever you do, do not join (not if you want to have a life that is). It is beautiful in it's ability to suck you in completely. I think Danielle and I spent at least an hour (honestly, probably more), sitting next to each other on the couch, silently blipping.

Friends, audiophiles, beware.
