Some of my favorite Roches songs

This post brought to you by the surprisingly comprehensive Christmas album We Three Kings by the Roches. I spent the better part of a day off last week baking cookies while listening to it, and I dare say it was the closest to the holiday spirit I think I’m going to get. For a taste,Continue reading “Some of my favorite Roches songs”

In which I aggressively screencap another Beatles video

Oh, hi. Nothing like new Beatles footage to bring me scrambling back to the blog. LOOK: I’ve been waiting impatiently for any news of this documentary since its premiere was delayed earlier this year, so I nearly burst with excitement when I saw this update tweeted out this morning (it was literally the reason forContinue reading “In which I aggressively screencap another Beatles video”

Life During Quarantine

A while back, out of nowhere, I got the urge to fill out one of those surveys like the ones that used to circulate in my Hotmail and Myspace inboxes back in middle school: you know, the 100-line long questionnaires with annoying font colors and *~*wRiTiNg LiKe ThIs*~*.

(Technically, Record Store Day 2020 has been postponed to June 20, so hopefullyContinue reading “The Bookends Poster Saga”

Lost Highway / The Straight Story

Hello again!  I’m back because there are two David Lynch movie scenes I really needed to share somewhere. Last week we went to a late night showing of Lost Highway at the Alamo Drafthouse (they were screening it as part of their “Weird Wednesdays” series), which in retrospect was a pretty bold move on myContinue reading “Lost Highway / The Straight Story”

Anime art appreciation: Your Name

Oh hey, just dropping in to share these beautiful screenshots from the anime Your Name (Makoto Shinkai, 2016). We watched this the other night and I couldn’t stop ogling over the artwork (the rest of it is good too, if you’re like me and love stories about fate and dreams and memory). I also enjoyedContinue reading “Anime art appreciation: Your Name”
