The Magnetic Fields - 69 Love Songs

I am not certain what genre of music The Magnetic Fields fall under, Pop Folk perhaps? What draws me to this particular album is the melancholic smart ass lyrics and the varied assortment of sound each song brings. I share with you some of my favorite tracks from their concept album box set entitled "69 Love Songs."

the magnetic fields - i don't believe in the sun
the magnetic fields - i cant touch you anymore

the magnetic fields - epitaph for my heart

the magnetic fields - papa was a rodeo

the magnetic fields - chicken with it's head cut off

the magnetic fields - crazy for you but not that crazy

the magnetic fields - underwear
the magnetic fields - the death of ferdinand de saussure

loretta lynn - "one's on the way"

I love Loretta Lynn. She makes me feel happy. I think that Griff and Loretta are kindred spirits for some reason. T/F? Basically, she has this really great song called "One's on the Way" that was actually written by Shel Silverstein, and who doesn't love that? I love the way she sings this. I want you all to memorize the lyrics with me so we can belt it out the windows on a drive to P. Terry's. Is that tight? I'm sorry I posted another Muppets clip, but LL on the Muppet Show is too good to pass up AND I love those freaky baby Muppets. How scary are those?! Holy shit.

RIP harvey korman

Harvey Korman is a badass. He has starred in some of my all time favorite movies. He died today at age 81. Here's to a super tight individual who will make me laugh for years and years to come.

Here's Harvey as Hedley Lamarr in Blazing Saddles. RIP.

grace jones on pee wee's christmas special

Blah, blah, Paul Reubens in an adult theater. I don't give a crap. Haters to the left. Pee Wee's Playhouse shaped my youth and in my opinion, Pee Wee Herman is one of the biggest ballers of all time. All of America's youth should be taught the ways of Pee Wee and his movies should be screened at every elementary school across the nation. Anyway, here's a classic clip from Pee Wee's Christmas special. It's the intro to his show followed by Grace Jones singing Little Drummer Boy. I mean, how freakish can you get! I love this slut.

cat ladies

This is super similar to Man Babies, which I referenced in a previous post. But these are still pretty tight. The crude photoshop that went into these delights me.

Oprah Spam

Yes, that is a screen shot of my junk mail. Oprah haunts me, even in my spam.

Seriously, wtf.


this makes me rofl every single time.

Good One


nothing beats this

This is the best clip ever. I could watch this a million times in a row and still gut bust. THE TINY HAT LOLOLOLOLOL. Like I said, best thing ever.

This Is Why The Camera Was Invented

something old i like #5: the 1970s

Let it be known that I love the 70s. I know, I wasn't born yet. But I came along shortly thereafter. I have referenced this decade many times already in previous posts (read: Match Game). I really have a fondness for the mid to late 60s, too, but the years 1970-1979 are just way too tight to pass up. First of all, every 70s fashion needs to come back. I'm serious. Also we need discos again. Why did these stop? I don't need the excessive cocaine use to come back, but the discos are missed. I want Cher from 1972 back. I mean, I still love Cher, but you know. Here are some things that really need to make a comeback:

1. The Afro


You still see an Afro from time to time, but definitely not as often as you prob would've in 1974. I'm pissed that I can't grow one and I mean that truly. In fact, I say it quite often. I have always wanted to come back in another life as Erykah Badu because I'm jealous of her. The Afro is so amazing. Although I really hate fake Afro wigs for Halloween. I'm talking about the real deal here.

2. Bean Bag Chairs


I know when we were all around 12 or 13 we would've murdered for a bean bag. Well, I still would. I have one in my classroom and it's a huge hit. These days, I feel like bean bags are getting harder and harder to find. Granted, they kill my back and probably cause the early stages of scoliosis but I still want five multi-colored ones in my living room instead of a couch.

3. Lava Lamps


Um, hell yeah. Who doesn't love a good lava lamp? It sets the ambience for any room. Want to get dark and moody? Turn on the l. lamp. Want to turn on the sexy? Well, turn on the LAVA LAMP!! I have a purple one because I wanted one in my middle school colors at the time I purchased it (Scottie Pride forever). Again, another item that is getting harder to find but really enhances any room.

4. Mood Rings


Question: Why did Mood Rings fade out? The other day, a student in my class was wearing one and she knew what all the colors represented and I thought to myself: The children really are our future. Mood rings are so tight, even if they stay one blue shade all the time. One time I had one that really did turn black when I was really angry. Although I was around 14 at the time so I was probably mad because my hair went flat. Who cares if these things really work? The point is, they look baller. And instantly turn any guy into a perv.

5. Waterbeds


I know it's hard to see in that photo, but oh yeah baby, that's a waterbed. In fact, that is the beatuy of a waterbed. It looks like a regular bed, so you start feeling drowsy and climb on for a short snooze. SIKE! It's a rolly and tumbly waterbed and yet another reason to f up your back. My brother had a waterbed when he was in high school and I wonder what the effects are on his back these days. I just remember wanting one really bad, but I couldn't have one. Now I know why. Although they look so tight and swish around like the wave pool at Schlitterbahn, which makes me think of summer, and therefore is tight. Talk about the true stamp of a swinger.

I know you can still get a lot of this crap online, but I just want to complain about something. Long live the 70s!

underwater restaurant

Is this tight? An underwater restaurant seems like a tight idea. It also seems like something I would have doodled on my desk in fourth grade. Which basically means something I never thought would really happen. I wouldn't be able to eat a bite of my dinner because I would be hyperventilating the whole time. Something just seems FISHY with this place. I really need to know how the diners get in and out. I also want to see the menu and wine list, because I bet it would be something scoff-worthy.

people and their dogs

You know that old saying about how dogs start to look like their owners or vice versa? Well, these pictures are showcasing that while being super tight. The spaniel dog ear hair really cracks me up. I CANNOT HANDLE the dude and his dog. Tight.

Few more here.

Usher does Singing in the Rain

singin' in the rain clips

I love Singin' in the Rain. It's in my top five. I was going to post all about the movie, but I kept finding YouTube clips I wanted to post instead. Here are some of my favorites from the movie.

"Good Morning" (not the Kanye song HAHA)

I would give anything to be Debbie Reynolds in this clip. How insanely choreographed is this dancing? It's so tight. I love it. Also, it's just a really classic song that makes me feel good.

"Beautiful Girl"

I love the fact that a fashion show was worked into this movie. I love the guy's narration so much. The way he practically screams "DYE IT." In fact, this might be one of my favorite sequences only because it's like a dog whistle to me. I will drop whatever I'm doing to watch this, such a dog will respond to a whistle sound that our ears cannot interpret. Some of those girls are really struggling to stay frozen which gets my goat.

"You Were Meant For Me"

This is a really great love song. I like the way they use the props so dramatically. I think Gene Kelly was a pretty big a-hole in real life, but in this song I really love him. This song needs to be played at any proposal, wedding dance, or first kiss. If is isn't, I'll be pissed.

everyone uses facebook

Here's something disturbing/hilarious. If you remember, Jim McGreevey was the governor of New Jersey but then he came out while in office and resigned. You know, the guy that was all like, "My truth is that I am a gay American." Supposedly, he was being blackmailed by some guy he possibly dated or made out with or something. Look, I never claimed to be on top of real news. Anyway, since then, his ex-wife has come forward with a lot of tawdry things to say about it and appeared on Oprah and other shows. She has written some book. She and Jim are still pretty involved in custody battles and junk. He lives with his new boyfriend in some mansion and I don't really know what he does now. But he does use Facebook. How do we know? Well, some football playing teen named Corey that came out a few years and got a little publicity is having a birthday party. And he made a Facebook invite for it. Just like we do! The thing is, he invited all his Facebook friends, including Jim McGreevey. But Jimmy Boy can't come. AND HE ACTUALLY RESPONDED AS TO WHY.


Um, what? This is so nuts. But it really gets my goat. I guess it just goes to show that we all sit around and play on Facebook and anyone that says he doesn't is a damn liar. This proves that my truth is that I am a Facebook American.

Food Cart Review: Lulu B's

Okay, so between my single-hour lunch breaks and this beastly heat, things are about to get Food Cart Central, which is undeniably tight. So I'll be providing reviews of our city's finer mobile restaurants as often as my schedule allows. Let's start with something killer:

Lulu B's Vietnamese Sandwiches. I know what you're thinking, THERE ARE SANDWICHES IN VIETNAM??!?!?!?!??! adf dlfkj asdkfj I didn't know either, but apparently, it's a thing. Sarah and I have been two days in a row now, no lie.

Basic menu breakdown is sandwiches, vermicelli bowls, and summer rolls, with a supporting lineup of smoothies and bubble tea. Being devoutly opposed to bubble tea, I went straight for the smoothie list and proceeded to flip out over the prospect of an avocado smoothie (i know!). I don't know of another place in Austin that serves it and I gotta say, it's so, so tight. Theirs is nice and thick, but not too thick, with a little hint of lime.

The sandwiches are all pretty similar: your choice of protein on a baguette with a "traditional Vietnamese garnish of daikon, carrot, cucumber, cilantro, and chili." And really, that combo is all that matters. I get the feeling that all the choices are relatively similar, which does not make it rock any less. Stand-out for me was the lemongrass pork sandwich. It's just the right balance of spicy and fresh raw vegetables and is perfectly suited to sweating in your jeans under a tree in 100 degree heat (nice trees, too, by the way). But I'm also a sucker for fresh jalapeno and tableside sriracha. As far as the veg option goes, the obit department is prepared to unofficially declare the lemongrass tofu as supreme.

Mint in the summer rolls is a huge plus. The avocado was so good, we got it again on day two instead of branching out. The peanut sauce is far better than you'd expect coming out of a cart, but it's also a little strong, if that's possible. I didn't use much of it.

They also:
happen to be adorable
recycle and use all compostable containers
offer a bring your own bag discount, and
remembered my name after one visit

Downer: cash only, but, alas, that is the way of the cart
Upper: they take call-in orders and have plenty of shaded tables

Overall rating: Super Tight, $$

Largest lolcat of All Time?

Is it tight to get hugs and kisses from a massive lion?

Alice Dance Groove

Possibly tight? A South African fellow named Nick made this mix, saying that 90% of the sounds are captured from Disney's Alice In Wonderland. Seems like a lot of work, and the video is kind of tight.

Free mp3 download here

Sounds kind of like a Bjork b-side, but I kinda likes it for what it is. byebye

put these on asap

Most of us have probably seen these bad album covers. If not, you can see more at the source. But I have to say, if I was given the chance to record an album I would go balls to the wall like these tools. I mean, if you've got one shot, just go for it. Elephants in wigs?! TIGHT! Also, the "many facets of Roger" appear to be mostly one facet. And that guy with the dog is terribly cocky. Poor pooch.

The site is worth checking out for many reasons, but one of them is the incredible Millie Jackson, whose album Back to the Shit, showcases her taking a dump. I was going to post the cover, but then I realized I didn't want first time readers to never read again. You'll have to see it for yourself. Also, believe it or not, my dad actually owns some Millie Jackson.

Basically, these are screen caps. However, this guy is tight because he knew just when to cap it. These are hilarious. What a simple yet brill idea.
