this is why we fight.
i’ve had a year of ups and downs. usually fall feels like the renewal of the year for me, the beginning, all bouquets of dying leaves and cold winds threatening to storm down from the mountain range. i’ve managed to rid myself of some things, trimmed the vestigial from my reasons for living. i have plans, big ones, and the sadnesses that hold me back must be left behind. something...

the decemberists - january hymn i love this track, and i’m so excited to see them soon soon soon! check that group off my rock music live bucket list. it’s wistful and wintry, like that feeling of touching the misty condensation on your side of the window as you look out on a snowy yard, warm inside with a fire at your back but fingers growing chilly as drops of weather lay trails...

aunt: does anybody know how to turn off the wii? mum: do kegels!
woodpigeon - spirehouse i think i am missing sweetness. my life has many things, but there’s a quality to sweet, which isn’t necessarily the same thing as “saccharine”; there’s a great breakdown of how we view the quality of “sweet” in the botany of desire by michael pollan: “Sweetness is a desire that starts on the tongue with the sense of taste,...
everyone is sharp-edged, this time of year. elbows on the bus, tense energy, smiles like paper ready to crumple. night falls at four pm and we all angrily mourn the short-livedness of sunshine. i put on red lingerie, pin my hair up, sew some buttons, and get ready to pour drinks.
i think for the first time, i’m that person i always saw as cruel in a romantic or sexual entanglement, more disinterested in the other but still involved, not quite sure how to broach such a topic. i know what dan savage would tell me to do. it’s a lovely day - well, lovely-ish, and my mother is coming today. we are going to drink beers with my favorite ladies and celebrate the...

delicious beats up for download →
ill-esha, who’s a bass-step glitch-hop kinda artist i really admire, has bwomp-y tron remix up for download. she used to be based out of vancouver before relocating to san francisco, and her stuff is rad, this track being no exception. i’m kind of stoked about tron and the daft punk music for it despite the sketchy disney sell-out vibe, this awesome tune is free, so download it!
holiday productivity: take two measures organic espresso. grind a generous measure fresh, boil water in kettle, then poil boiling water over grinds in french press. heat almond milk while coffee is steeping, heat cup with leftover boiled water, and mix within as desired. add lavender-infused honey if you have a sweet tooth (which i do). nom carob squares from a local organic bakery which your...
i have been challenged to make a sexy playlist. i’m having troubles meshing the different styles of music i find situationally sexy; sensitive indie rock sexy, dark dubstep sexy, etc, etc. anyone have any song recommendations for me?
faery photoshoot with such beautiful friends! new lovely smaller hoop! strange, dominant, tempestuous sexual energy of a distant kind i’ve never had mastery of. it’s baffling and different but fun. the completion of what feels like thousands of knitting projects for presents for friends and family, the result of a vow to not spend money on stupid, consumerist crap made in other...
