We saw Karen O perform at Le Poisson Rouge a few weeks ago and she was amazing! She sounds exactly like you hear her in YYY and KO records.
I love her Crush album. It’s full of raw emotion, but the songs have a serene, calm feeling to them. There’s a leaflet that comes along with the vinyl that said, “When I was 27 I crushed a lot. I wasn’t sure I’d fall in love again…" That’s exactly how I feel listening to the album, as if I was 23 (in my case), with a school girl crush and completely infatuated…except this time it’s with the right person. Sorry for the cheese but I can’t find better words than those. But yes. Listen to Crush if you want that feeling too.
Ideas are scary. They come into this world ugly and messy. Ideas are frightening because they threaten what is known. They are the natural born enemy of the way things are. Yes ideas are scary and messy, and fragile. But under the proper care they become something beautiful.
I teared up to this and watched it more times than I could remember. It feels great to know that there is a place for you out there, even if you don’t know where just yet.
Carolina and her boyfie came by two weeks ago for a day trip. While us best friends talked and talked and talked, her boyfriend spent a lot of time snapping photos. They sent copies to me the other day and I gasped when I saw this photo—our legs never looked so good. I’ve always disliked my legs because I feel like my calves are so bulky especially when I’m wearing flat sneakers like these. Carolina and I spent many many many years complaining about our gams, and look at how fit they are now! Oh man I’ve never been prouder of my legzzzzz.
P.S. I really hate that this is blurry lol but there is some art going on here ya know.
