Stop everything

1. I was originally going to post about Miley Cyrus' new single/video "Can't Be Tamed" and how all of that just needs to stop.

However, there was an ad that played before that video. For this:

Thanks, MileyCyrusVEVO. H.O.V.A. is still better than us, and John Mayer is still confusing. Excuse me, John Mayer. I also like how both he and Jay-Z are so nonchalant about twitter. This clip is 15 minutes long and twitter gets brought up twice.

In other news, we decided to record demos ourselves because actually recording was taking forever to happen. Postin' stuff soon.

Also, we're playing a show Thursday July 1st at the Lager house with the Kickstand Band, Kommie Kilpatrick, and the Sugarcoats. Maria, Eric from Kommie, and I will be DJ-ing between sets. It'll be my first time ever!

Whatever, here's that Miley Cyrus video anyway.

Also, I never continued my numerated list. Oh well. Next time.

Break it up Pt. 2!

So here I am again, on my lunch break at work. Maybe this will be when I BLOG from now on.

Three things:

1. I think someone just took a picture of the back of my head. Is it because I haven't washed my hair since ... is it bad that I don't remember? Wednesday? Dry shampoo, y'all. Deadbeat Beat should have an endorsement.

Am I bad at being a girl?

2. I couldn't fall asleep last night until 2:30 am so I TOTALLY could have gone out anyway.

Am I bad at being a real person?

3. On my 15-minute break earlier this morning I started reading Kate Gosselin's book "I Just Want You to Know." She kept using the phrase "six tiny faces."

In band news,

We have some new songs. Can't wait to record everything! Word on the street is that we're playing July 1 at the (PJ's) Lager House w/ other bands that might include Kommie and the Sugarcoats. Whatever it is, I'm sure it'll be a BALL!

Break it up!

Totally on my break at the bookstore. The Internet never works at work except today! I'm not gonna talk about what's happened at work so far because you're not supposed to post about that sort of stuff on the Internet!

However, I will say that I am bummed that I'm working until 11 pm tonight + opening at 8 am tomorrow morning because I kinda wanted to go see Kommie Kilpatrick. If I still worked at LBD I'd probably go anyway because customers couldn't really see if I was sleep deprived/hung over because I could hide behind a counter. And my face was always flushed because of the pizza oven anyway. But at the bookstore I have to help people find things and sell them e-readers and memberships, so how my face looks matters a little bit more. And I guess at the deli I didn't have to be in until 10 am on Saturdays anyway. Which was so much cooler than every other morning I worked, which began at 7 am!!!!! Oh man, all this talking about food service jobs makes me miss them already.

Hmm, what else can I BLOG about? Alex always posts pictures/vids so I'm trying to offset them with text so our BLOG seems more legit. I guess I'll talk about things I've been digging lately:

"Younger Than Yesterday" by the Byrds (I wrote about buying this on vinyl in my last post)
the Byrds in GENERAL
making dresses out of giant dudes button down shirts from Value World (if you buy them in XXL they're totally long enough for a 5'5" gurl)
trying to keep my room clean (NOT)
drinking Oberon
alphabetizing books/records (thanks bookstore job)

Okay, well, guess I have ten minutes left until it's back to the grind. If I'm going to pee, might as well put my stuff away and get the bathroom key now. SEE YA GUYS LATER.

Storm's a-brewin

Lightning just struck the ground and the thunder set off my neighbor's car alarm. It was like a movie, or a ride at Universal Studios. Like the Quake ride, only over faster.

day off

Cloudy day in Ferndale, MI. Day off. Went to bank, made accidentally weak coffee. Washed clothes from Value World. Tried not to step on broken glass in basement with bare feet.

Sittin in room lookin at new records. Alex and I have been buying records left and right lately! At places other than Car City! A couple days ago I went to Record Time by myself and bought:

"Palace of Swords Reversed," a compilation by the Fall
"Drop Out With the Barracudas," the Barracudas
"The Best of Love" by Love because I wanted to have a Love album to listen to on my record player and I'm probably not gonna find "Da Capo" or "Forever Changes" for cheap any time soon
"Between the Buttons," the Rolling Stones
Annnnd the remastered "Raw Power" (meaning the original Bowie version of it) by the Stooges for Lee's b-day!

A few days earlier Alex and I went to the Record Collector by our house and I got:

"Old Ways" by Neil Young because I'm working on having every NY record ever because I'm a dweeb
a Kim Fowley-selected compilation called "Kim Fowley's Hollywood Confidential"
"Sweetheart of the Rodeo" by the Byrds
Annnnd "Younger Than Yesterday" by the Byrds

So basically, whenever I break down and buy some records, I'm more than likely to just buy albums from bands that I already like, or I buy different formats of albums I already have. Oops. But, it's nice having albums to listen to on yer record player.

Since now I have no money, maybe I'll use this time to 1) hope I don't overdraft my checking account and 2) think about other records I should get. It would be cool if I didn't already own them, or listen to the band. Any suggestions Internet?

A Reminder

Also (a picture post)

They make sea horse whiskey in Thailand.

And scorpion and cobra whiskey.

I bet you could find that at Gibraltar Trade Center.

Also, for those of you whom have had the pleasure, aren't you used to Gibraltar Trade center looking like this:

Did you have any idea that it sometimes looks like this:

Bad at Blogging

What do you blog about?

We're playing this Thursday with Goodnight Loving, Useless Eaters and Kommie Kilpatrick at the Lager House. This is our first show at the Lager house in our new outfit. It should be great! We play first since we're a new band still. See ya there.

Oh, and we're recording really soon. Yeaaaah!
