Broken Bells - The Ghost Inside

This one has Christina Hendricks (Mad Men, but here reminiscent of her Firefly days).

Broken Bells - The High Road

Broken Bells - The High Road: "Broken Bells"

Newish music I like a lot. Gnarls Barkley's Danger Mouse plus James Mercer of the Shins. Not sure what the video's about - I'm pretty sure they are ghosts. Other theories?

More Eco-Chic

While I am at it, Payless's Zoe & Zac has some very cute strappy sandals and it's BOGO time. $26.99, and $13.50 for the second pair if you want them in black, too.

Cool Summer Bag Find

I haven't done one of these in a while, so, here is a cute repurposed bag I came across today, only $12.99 plus eligible for free shipping. I like how it's edged pretty, plus it's fair trade/organic.

Alligator Lizards in the Air

We spent the weekend taking a quick overnight camping trip in the Westy to San Buenaventura - or, 'Ventura'. We didn't take the Ventura Highway to get there, actually, since it's a boring ol' freeway and Route 1 through Malibu is much more scenic. But I decided to quote it anyway because it's one of the weirdest song lyrics ever, and it played on a loop in my head all weekend.
Play it if you dare.
Anyway, technically the campground was in North Oxnard, but Oxnard, to my knowledge, has no song.

Easter Quake

Did a water main break in the earthquake?

No, water sloshes out of all the pools. Did not know that.

Alice is the New Black

A list of "Popular Searches" from
Alice In Wonderland
Michael Myers
Michael Jackson
Star Wars
Teen Costumes
Mad Hatter

They were handing out bags that said "Alice is the New Black" somewhere at the Disney Expo - wish I could have found that. Anyway, it's gonna be a big Alice year. And vampires, natch. Has anyone come up with a derisive name for Twilight devotees yet? Just curious! In any case, plan accordingly!

I Admit It...I WAS Bamboozled

I should have known better. But of COURSE "bamboo" fabrics are just rayon. Ditto for your birch tree sheets, Marnie, or whatever those were. Rayon sucks. Arrrrgh! More here and here.

They used to show the scores

Got to spend a few hours with our friends Britt, Eileen, and Eleanor at Disneyland last night. We pretty much stayed in Tomorrowland, that was unusual for us. Greg decided not to SHOOT during our Buzz Lightyear ride, so his score was 0. The teenager in front of us was shooting the whole time and got 100 so 0 doesn't sound that bad (hit one thing = 100). Anyway, here's pretty much our only photo from inside the park since I am still camera-less.

RIP John Hughes

This Current piece is a good intro to why he was so responsible for people caring about good music.

A High Level of Insanity

The crazy people are scaring me. Make it stop. That is all.
