Short Post and a Song #54: The word "vital" means "absolutely necessary" or "essential."

We're doing today like old times, and I'm letting a photo speak in lieu of a joke:

You're sending me mixed messages, Red Mill.


"Girl, Lately Things Have Been Changing" by The Beautiful Girls

Some days I am just in the mood to listen to some bluesy guitar and motherfucking harmonicas, and today is one of those days.

Short Post and a Song #53: The Makeup Conundrum

Guy: Ugh, women are so annoying with their makeup. Why can't they realize that they'd all be so much more beautiful without it? 

(Sees a woman who is legitimately not wearing any makeup.) 

Guy: Are you feeling all right, ma'am? You look SUPER tired. 


"Over the Love" by Florence + the Machine

I wish I could say this song's significance to me had anything to do with The Great Gatsby. It is, after all, my favorite book if I gun-to-my-head had to have a favorite. I also got to be one of the first to report on the movie, out this weekend, back when it was just a twinkle in Baz Luhrmann's eye.

But no. The reason I'm featuring "Over the Love" this week is because I was writing what will probably be the creepiest scene in Moorhouse (top five at least), and the only way I could get through it was by listening to this and "Seven Devils" over and over on a never-ending loop. It turns out that Florence + the Machine suits demonic dolls and psychotic robot monsters quite well. Is anyone surprised?

Short Post and a Song #52: George Lass was reincarnated as Jaye Tyler after she finally hit her soul quota, and you will never convince me otherwise.

I've always been sad that there were only two seasons of Dead Like Me, and now I've just realized Wonderfalls exists, and I'm so happy. 

Bryan Fuller, you beautiful, beautiful bastard.


"It's Time" by Imagine Dragons

This song is belongs in the background of a particularly cathartic scene toward the end of a movie; a scene of the fist-pumping variety.
