You don’t like that your coworker used me on that note about stealing her yogurt from the break room fridge? You don’t like that I’m all over your sister-in-law’s blog? You don’t like that I’m on the sign for that new Thai place? You think I’m pedestrian and tacky? Guess the fuck what, Picasso. We don’t all have seventy-three weights of stick-up-my-ass Helvetica sitting on our seventeen-inch MacBook Pros.
As featured in the trailer for Sofia Coppola’s upcoming Somewhere. As any teen that had their musical coming-of-age in 2003–2004, I have my fair share of Strokes b-sides, demos and alternate takes. This version of “You Only Live Once” appears as "I’ll Try Anything Once" on the “Heart In A Cage” single.
But out of the 5.2 hours of Strokes recordings on my computer, this, the EP version of The Modern Age and the Is This It demos that sound like they’re being recorded in a small bathroom during an amphetamines bender are the only tracks worth keeping.
Postscript: Has anybody else been hearing Is This It played in-full in stores and cafes of late?
One of our facey mutual friends is just Sticky! Disappoint! But the CBR/Melbourne ones are pretty weird. I'm gonna friend you anyways. You better confirm or else I'll sober up and die of embarrassment. You can't live with that on yr conscience.
To all: Thursday night, I met Erin at a hipster gallery opening. I drank enough free beer that by the time she rocked up with her reverse beard, I thought it was a good idea to have bought a box of frozen raspberries—rapidly thawing in my bag. So we didn’t talk for long but there was a solid ten minutes of quality banter.
To you: I am also disappoint! Our mutuals make no sense whatsoever but I just figure that everybody who lives in 3121 knows Emmy because she is a Local Legend. Die not!
adj. hearing a person with a thick accent pronounce a certain phrase—the Texan “cooler,” the South African “bastard,” the Kiwi “thirty years ago”—and wanting them to repeat it over and over until the vowels pool in the air and congeal into a linguistic taffy you could break apart and give as presents.
i googled “how to be a good person” today and i clicked on the first link which was a little test to see how good a person is. it asked me if ive ever lied, if ive ever been angry at someone, if ive ever looked at anyone in lust, to which i said yes. and even if you click NO I HAVENT, it just asks you again, ARE YOU SURE? I FIND THAT HARD TO BELIEVE and makes you click yes anyways. and then it goes on to tell you that you are guilty and deserve to go to hell and should REPENT! REPENT! REPENT YOUR SINS! whilst calling me a liar, an adulterer and a murderer and that jesus christ is my only hope.
not only is this confusing, but it contradicts itself in so many ways. this has not helped me at all :/
Or as I like to call it, six years in a Catholic high school.
