Haunting this lady.

Wednesday, October 19, 2011


One of the most memorable episodes from one of my favorite childhood classics, "Pete and Pete," is the Halloween episode, entitled, "Halloweenie."

I am so psyched to watch this episode right now. Especially because I am going to be little Pete for Halloween this year. I just hope I can get Petunia to come out right.

I am Singing in a Band

Theme Songz

My sister's baseball team is picking out "theme songs" to play for each player when they step up to bat. I have to say, I am having waaaay too much fun picking out potential songs for my sister.

We have been playing songs for a looong time, and many have been considered, but here are just a few of my front-runner picks:

1.) Beastie Boys - Sabotage

This is still my number 1 pick, I think this would be HILARIOUS to walk up to bat, pointing to the outfield to signal your impending home run...

2) 2pac - Hit em up

CANNOT go wrong with this one. Also, HAPPY BDAY 2pac haha!

3) White Zombie - More Human than Human

...hilarious....and so good.

And the song that my sister is picking, which I think is an AMAZING pick is...

Nine Inch Nails - Head Like a Hole

...this intro is amazing to step up to bat against the other team. Genius!!

Do A Dance!

If you read my post from yesterday, you may have gathered that I was all sorts of cranky, anxious, and just pretty down-in-the-dumps about job-searching and being unemployed with lots of student loans and bills weighing on my little shoulders like a thousand pound bag of potato chips...(yum!).

WELL, interestingly enough, today while I was being all kinds of cranky riding my bike from South Philly up to my house, (it is so damn hot today, and no bike lanes in Old City can make a girl a little cranky!), I heard my cell phone ring in my bag. I didn't think too much of it because I was cranky and riding my bike. BUT, when I finally did get home and checked my voicemail....I found out that I got the job I wanted!!!!

Now it's time to do a dance.

We gonna sip some champagne tonight oh yeah!

An Update

The events of today (or lack-thereof...) can sum up how things have been going for me lately. Here is a cryptic list of somewhat interconnected happenings in an attempt to sum it up:

1) Although I know I was working furiously all day, multitasking about a million things with no breaks...I can't really tell you what I did today.

2) One thing I CAN tell you is that I spent about two hours on the application for ONE website (that shall remain nameless) and still didn't finish...

3) Realized at 4pm that all I had eaten was a piece of toast :(

4) Attempted to write a coherent and serious essay on SQUIRRELS for my online Biology class.

Yup. Life is good.

Also, this:


The end.

A Weird, Dreamy Dance

My long, lost friend Erin is coming for an east coast visit on this very eve (side note: I keep writing 'easy' coast every time I try to write 'east' coast lately...doh!).

I am so excited. I thought I would share my excitement for her return with a weird dance video that sums up my expectations for tonight.

Dark Flowers

Not the best quality video, but I'm glad to have stumbled across this beautiful song by Emily Kokal, nonetheless.

Also, I can't tell if it is some kind of effect, but it kinda sounds like Emily gets a little diplophonic at 1:36? I'm not sure but I hope she is taking care of her voice!

PS. you can hear Jenny say, "Oh shit giiiiiiiiiirl!" at the end, which is super cute.

Do You Believe In Rapture?

Thought this was pretty appropriate for the coming weekend:

Also, I was at that show : )

Here's another pretty one from Rather Ripped:

Dancin' Kim <3

PS. All day today I thought it was Wednesday...until just now I realized it was actually Thursday. I kinda feel like Jordan Catalano right now : (

Summer Mix 2011

Front Cover:

Track List:

Weeeee! I Sent them out to everyone who requested a Spring 2011 Mix, but if you didn't request and want me to send you one, let me know.

In other news, today will be spent writing cover letter....after cover letter...after cover letter. Ugh. LEAST favorite part about this whole job-search process (besides not hearing from any of the places I've applied thus far!).

Time to get crackin!

I Didn't Love You Yesterday, Now I Always Will

Here are some new musical faves that I've stumbled across during my unemployed/unstudent I mean, 'new grad' status (...dang, I need to git a job).


1. Coma Cinema:

I listened to this band's album last night (called, 'Stoned Alone'...haha!) whilst cleaning up after dinner and all I can say is that dishwashing has never been so fun.


2. Mermaids:

When I came across this particular band I got real excited because for a second I thought they might be Katie Sketch's rumored (and I think now dead) post-Organ project, which was titled, 'Mermaids' as well. For the first few seconds of the first song I heard I was a bit disappointed and a tad grumpy...until those sweet, sweet, surfy-garage-inspired guitar notes jangled on through my ears. I couldn't help tapping my foot along, and now I'm hooked. This band hails from Atlanta, GA. I also love finding a good video of an amazing live performance, and these guys definitely nailed it!

3. Purity Ring:

Purity Ring- Lofticries from David Dean Burkhart on Vimeo.

I am actually surprised by how much I really like this single from Purity Ring, as I normally don't really get down with this genre of music. But this is super sick and I'll prolly be cranking this while driving (GTA-IV style?) through the streets of Philly. Also, I am pretty sure a fan put this video together, but this old movie kinda reminds me of Kill Bill and there's sweet 70's dresses in it, (plus eye-patches!), so that's an added bonus.

PS. My funemployment status has resurrected my video-gaming tendencies and I blasted the dust off my XBOX 360 the other day...get ready for some GTA-IV references...(since I can't afford any new games!) : (

"Aw Christmas I beddr git outta here"

That's all for now, back to the job search....

Stella Mozgawa insane and I love her:

She also kills it on the drums, as witnessed below ('specially around the 1:15 mark...wait for it!):

Warpaint - Drugs Roll Sex Rock @ UO, SXSW from Kenny Bloggins on Vimeo.

*I promise I will TRY to stop posting warpaint vids for awhile....

"...but I just like dem."

So sweet!

PS. You gotta love the camera effects at the first freak out.

I am obsessed and cannot get enough of this band:

Summer Jamz

From new favorite, Family Portrait:

(this is them live in philly last year...wish I had been there!)

This is them in my old stomping grounds of New Brunzwick, NJ:

It makes me a little sad and nostalgic that I don't know the names of the punk houses in NB that have shows now : (

Today is a good day to drive around in cars listening to songs like this:

New Obsession/ Girl Crush

...with a dreamy girl band that is NOT School of Seven Bells, (My sister and her boyfriend Chip also said they were super disappointing when they saw them at Johnny Brenda's awhile ago...bummerz).

Warpaint has been around for quite awhile (they started in 2004, but I think started to get more attention/released their ep in 2007/2008-ish?), but like I've said before, I am often the last one to find out about things in general. In any case, I am excited to have found a "new" (for me) band that I really like a lot.

In other news, I passed comps! Now all that is left to do is pass praxis, make my resume (HELP!?), and the small matter of actually finding a decent CFY position somewhere close to Philadelphia...preferably (and hopefully) with adults.

Spring 2011

Another mix for spring 2011 made by your's truly. I have to re-scan the draw-ring because it got a little cut-off, but here is a sneak preview anyway:

Two videos of two songs that I put on the mix. They're pretty and fun, I think:

(I'm pretty sure this video was shot in Transylvania...also, there is a dog running around in the snow with a big stick, which I sadly found pretty entertaining).

In other news, comps (my comprehensive exams that allow me to graduate from my master's program) were pretty overwhelming and terrible, but also really not important in the grand scheme of things and what is happening around the world. Prayers and positive thoughts to everyone in Japan, and also thinking about my friend Alexis in Cairo and hoping she is safe and sound.

Friday, March 4, 2011

I'm excited for this:

And this, too, (when comps are over):
