This song was the shit when I was little. I would hang out with my friend and her older sister and all of her friends and they'd listen to the craziest shit. Because we were so much younger they would make us dance and dress up super crazy. This was certainly one of the songs. I wonder if it had any effect on who I am as a person, currently.

Bitter Bitter Sweets

If it wasn't for my good friend and fellow blogger Erin Marie I would have never stumbled upon the treasure that is Bittersweets. The woman behind the jewelry has a passion for vampires and creepy-crawlers that she sculpts and casts into tiny charms that you can proudly dangle from your ears, neck, or wrist. You'll never catch me leave the house without the bottom jaw of my baby vamp ring. Blood Milk wears the top half of the fangs on a daily basis as well. Yes, they are our vampire friendship rings.. which isn't so strange once you get to know us.
Another talented team of jewelers that i have become fond of is SkinnyDog Design. They design a range of iconic pendents and rings. If you like big detailed jewelry this is the place to go. Each piece is run through CAD and then is machine cut out of wax to be casted. This gives them the ability to keep delicate details that may not be achievable by hand. This v twin motor ring makes me want cruise around the city on an old Honda 350.. even though my brother would never let me. When and if the economy restores itself this ring will be mine.

David Lynch

I, just like many people I know, love all things David Lynch. Twin Peaks is one of my favorite shows ever. Well, David Lynch has started a new project called Interview Project. He has a team of people crossing the country interviewing very random people. It's quite interesting.

Bad Words For Truly Bad Girls

I love when you walk by a conversation at the perfect moment and just happen to catch the juiciest tidbit coming out of the wrong person’s mouth. As I was walking down the street with my boyfriend and my wifey, we happened upon a woman that had long brown hair, skin as tan as leather, and essentially was a walking spine (i.e. a spine and so skinny she looked like was missing most if not all of her vital organs.) Anyhow, so the “spine” looks square at us and then continues her conversation with some weird middle-aged man and states “It looked just like a clitoris!”

Of course we caught no other part of the conversation. What looks like a clitoris and what a great description. I decided that I’d like to place clitoris in place of every other possible curse word on the planet. Two of my new catch phrases are:

“Clitoris off!”

“Fuck, what a clitoris”

So my bad ladies with bad habits, all I am asking is that you join me in using clitoris more regularly. Its not fair that the only word of female anatomy used in a derogatory manor is cunt. We use dick, balls, cock, and taint like they are going out of style. Let’s give our lady bits a little more credit and let them get as dirty as the man parts. Girls need dirty fun too. Is that too much to ask?

One of my favorite songs

Revolution Rock

Last week I went out with 2 friends of mine. I've known the one for a few years now and I consider her to be like a sister to me. I just love everything about her. Shes so unforgiving with everything she does. Her style, her attitude, her outlook on life/art/fashion. She just knows what she wants and goes after it. Whether she realizes it or not. I think shes an amazing artist and has so much potential.
The other friend I have I've only known for a short while. He's so funny and says whatever he feels and just rolls with it. Well, this young man(he's only like 17 or something. Not really but he makes my ass feel old.) Wellllllll, this kid does NOT like the Clash. I can not get over someone just flat out not liking the clash. That feels so odd to me.
On the way to this bar we were discussing The Clash and how absurd he is and maybe he just hasnt heard enough of them to really appreciate them. Train In Vain, Koka Kola, Spanish Bombs, The Card Cheat. It just goes on and on and on.
We get to the bar and Rock The Casbah comes on and we're all drunk so we giggle and dance and giggle some more. The dj proceeds to play The Stone Roses, New Order and 3 more Clash songs. It was so much fun. I cant imagine someone not enjoying it.Hopefully that was enough for said person to look into a few Clash albums. Oh those youngins....

Onto other things...My best friend, Betsey seems to always have some sort of really great project going on, whether its her and her girl friends blog dedicated to Twifanatics and the stars of the movies or her baking endeavors with Bake or Die!(If you are in South Florida, I suggest you take a look at all my girl has to offer. PS thats like the longest run on sentence in the world.) She's just starting a new project which I think is ingenious and more people should take advantage of. It's no secret...the girl loves to shop. Shoes, bags, accessories, clothing, the list goes on. Well, as she so eloquently put it, shes THE "Recessionista" and has decided to open her closet to all who want a look in. It's called Betsey J's Closet and if you're looking for a way to be more fashion forward on a budget I think this is your lucky day. In the next few days or so the site should be up and running and I think everyone should take a look around and help my girl clean out her closet. You know you're just dying to see whats inside.

Well, this is it for now. It's only 8:37 in the morning and I'm being so nice and happy. It's going to be a good day. Now my friends just have to wake up so I can make them go bike riding with me! Have a great weekend. I will.

Ugh, a whole week...

has gone by since I've written anything. It has been a pretty busy week for me. My job as opened a new office and it's become my new 9-5 home. It took a lot of preparation to get it up and running which has been quite stressful. So, in order to alleviate some of this stress I have done the following...

-Watching super old videos of The Smiths like this one
-Listening to Neil Diamond and Bob Dylan.
-Eating the best $6 tacos in all of South Philadelphia with A. and Tim.
-Dancing to The Clash and Stone Roses/Drinking PBC's Kenzinger.
-Watching Twilight.(I don't want to hear anything. This movie is so cute and you know it. Hater.)
-Trying to convince D. to go to Harry Potter tonight.He's sooo not having it.
-Making peanut butter cookies tonight. Yum!

So, besides being so excited for Harry Potter this weekend, I am also excited to see 500 Days of Summer. I'm also planning on visiting my friend, Emi this weekend in New York. I'm very excited to go Window Shopping with her and sit in the park and laugh.

I am the resurrection and I am the light.

This is for someone who actually thinks the term "arm shelf" is the funniest thing ever said and can't stop laughing. Freak.

*Joey is my uber cool 21 year old brother who tells me to call
call him "Joe" and hits on all of my girlfriends via facebook.

Bad Habits

I have tons and tons of bad habits/tendencies. I seem to think that the bad habit I'm about to share would be looked down on by people in a church, but I quite enjoy it.
Now, after many years of having conflicting schedules, the bf and I both have the weekends off together. At least once each weekend I'll buy some sort of alcohol(wine, gin, a good summer beer) and he'll smoke a little and we'll listen to music all night and just chat.
Sometimes I'll listen to The Smiths/Morrissey,New Order, Queen, etc. or he'll listen to anything from Jay-z to Sunny Day Realestate to Manowar.
We will talk and talk or I'll read a book while he play World Of Warcraft (Ugh, you dont have to tell me. I know.) It's become one of my favorite things to do and I look forward to it. I think I'm more excited to do something so small but awesome with him and maybe only somewhat less excited to have a few drinks and giggle myself silly.
I have much racier habits(not crack or anything. Eek.) but I thought I'd start out slow. Don't want people thinking I'm completely mental.

People will stare. Make it worth their while.

Movies and Music

Atari Teenage Riot makes a come back (Tokyo Drift did not count) in Big Man Japan

Who doesn't love Hanin Elias' crazy female voice screaming about police violence and revolution over Alec Empire's electronica beats and punk influences? 

Now mix that with a mockumentary-style parody poking fun at Japan's standard super hero and villain.. This is another entertaining film that is a part of the 6-Shooter Film Series.  (Another favorite on the list, Let The Right One In)

Unfortunately, it is not in theaters in Philadelphia, but I will get my hands on a copy!

Once you go black...

So, on and off the last 10 years, I'd say...I've been dying my hair black. I really do feel like I've seriously tried every black hair dye there is to try. I've had my hair professionally dyed black, which was a nightmare. They seriously got it all over everywhere and it faded in 2 weeks. I know, I know, they use semi-permanent dye, but seriously 2 weeks?! I used L'Oreal Feria Black Leather and Starry Night. I hated them both. Blue black dye is the worst, at least on me. And again, it fades so quickly. The new love of my life(when it comes to hair color maintenance, anyway) is Revlon Colorsilk Black. I do not care that its only 5 dollars. It works so well and doesn't fade nearly as fast as its more expensive predecessors. Call me cheap, tacky, thrifty. I don't give a fuhhhhh. It is what it is.

Im gonna try and do a compare&contrast/Hit Or Miss with other things I love. Plain tees(AA, Victorias Secret, H&M, F21, etc etc.)

If there is some next level hair dye Im just completely unaware of that you ladies use, hook me up! Give me a heads up.

My heart just broke a little. The man, the myth, the legend... Michael Jackson died. Sad sad day for everyone. 

Flavor of the week...

So, a couple of ideas that the girls and I had were to have a Flavor of the Day/Week/Month in reference to new beers that we've tried. (Let's face it, too many snoody bia's are "cocktail only" drinkers.) I am an equal opportunity drinker.

Christina and I went to Dock Street Brewery at 50th and Baltimore in the heart of West Philly.
(Our girl A. Mictlan works there. I'll let her tell ya'll how sweet this place is. But I'm tellin you know, try ANY of the pizza's. So yum.) We both ordered a pint of Honey Wheat. Let me tell you know, after one I had a pretty fun buzz on. After my second, I couldnt stop giggling at everything.

The description on the menu read as follows, "Abv. 6.9% 17 IBU's. Whear beer brewed with 120 lbs of Pa sourced wildflower honey and spiced with corriander and dried curacao. Bubble gum and hops in the nose. Passion fruit and grass up front, grainy in the middle, with a dry spicy finish."

I absolutely love that you could smell the corriander and got a definite spy kick after each sip. Totally lovely on Tuesday evening. I fully recommend a pint(or several) of this yum beer.*

*I am by nooooo means a beer connoisseur . This is just my lowly opinion.

I'd love to hear about other bars/brews I should try.

Bad Girl

Western spurs and boot chains are the new bad girl accessory that I need to have this fall. Just imagine a mysterious silhouette, in the shadows of her black attire with silver clanging spurs, walking across the room. I'll be linked to a western outlaw because I am no innocent cowgirl. You won't want to double cross me or the crew of black haired ladies with bad habits. I just need to find the perfect boot to make this scenario complete.

How bad can one girl be?

I can't speak for the other 2 girls I am starting this blog with...but for me, this is the first one I've actually attempted to do seriously.  This is just an outlet for me and 2 of my near and dear girl friends to speak a little about what's on our minds and some of the flattering and maybe not so flattering things we are into and do. 

Thank you for reading and I hope you come back time and time again to find that you are truly interested in the nonsense I have to write about. <3
