weekly music linkings



Today was the first rather nice day (full-out) I've experienced in a while. that is if you don't count the near-death experiences I had in the bathroom at ungodly hours this morning. don't you love those? like "I'm gonna die! I'm gonna die! I'll do things different this time!" and then you go back to sleep and wake up and are all like YAY SIN YAY DEBAUCHERY. Speaking of, I went to church for the first time last week since Christmas and enjoyed myself. weird.

so I sat in bed on what was the first truly gorgeous glorious physically flawless day of the year and listened to twee pop while I attempted to do homework. and it felt WONDERFUL.






"Is It Wicked Not to Care?"- Belle and Sebastian

Isobel Campbell, you broke my heart when you left B&S. although your stuff since then's been good. but really- if I had known about you when I was 13 I may still be playing the cello now.

"Gonna Make You Love Me"- Ryan Adams

I can't believe, for the record, Ryan Adams is married. and like retired from music? and Infinity Blues and yeah, yeah. although my tastes have developed since I was in tenth grade, I'll likely die a resolute Ryan Adams fan. Would it be so bad if him and new wifey Mandy Moore collaborated? I never minded her all that much. NOTHING BUT PENNIES IN MY POCKET HOW MUCH FO' YO LOVE??? wait, is that even her...?

"Mario's Cafe"- Saint Etienne

There's no prop for this song except I think I've killed listening to it. I'm not sure about Saint Etienne's other stuff. they're such a glamorous band, you know? and they seem so sophisticated to me. I don't think I'll ever be able to fully appreciate them, except when I'm on meth. which I haven't touched since October of 1998. but yeah: if I had to bring ten songs with me to a desert island to die on, this song would be on that list. most relaxing thing. and "Mario's Cafe" exists so visit it if you're ever in LDN!


I also have a livejournal, but it's no where near as fun as this these days. :) have a good week readers! and propz to Al, who is acting in an Agatha Christie play right now.

- Brittany




(the right note to close on)
I have a love, I have a love for this world
a kind of love that will break my heart
a kind of love that reconstructs and remodels the past
that adds a dryness to the dry August grass,
that adds the sunshine to the magnifying glass
and makes me fight for something that can't last.
"Into Eternity"- Jens Lekman

I met a boy this weekend that liked Jens Lekman as much as I did. I never know how to handle that, living in an area where most people are devoid of any musical taste (sry). I kind of want to territorially piss all over Jens.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawson, send it

Appropriate Holiday Gift Ideas for the Single Lady

While some people may see it as a drag, there are plenty of benefits to being single during the holiday season. During this time of the year, there are tons of parties you can attend that you may not have had the opportunity to if you were in a relationship. There’s also not as much stress on you as a single gal during the holidays because you don’t have to shop for your partner and extended family members  or  stress over where to eat Christmas dinner.  Not everyone sees the bright side of being fancy free during the holidays, and, tragically, they aren't afraid to let us single ladies know. Not only are single women subjected to even more harassment and ridicule during the holiday season, they’re also given the most obnoxious gifts by those who can’t comprehend how anyone can be both happy and single. Whether it’s a self-help book (desperately) trying to reinforce how great is to be single or the gift of a year-long subscription to Match.com , single women are presented with
