can i read too much into this please?
just came home from like crazy. i overheard a group of girls leaving and one said, “i wish i knew that it got better, or that it ended terribly. i just wish i knew” i love movies that have no ending. yes, the connection to the characters’ relationship does leave the audience somewhat disappointed at the end, but in my mind i knew how everything played out after the final cut. ...

emails from the bets
the bets is actually rather hip, with it, and the like. she puts an extreme amount of effort into her email subject headers in an attempt to immediately grab the reader (often my sister or myself) and thereby encourage reading and a response to said email. otherwise the effect is often similar to this. one of my favorites just came earlier today and shows just how well she knows me (i...

What Your Favorite Type of Music Says About You →
philolzophy: Cool dad mom indie. You have good music taste, but you’re also about eighteen months behind every major trend. Basically it goes hipsters > cool dads moms > mainstreamers. So yeah, you catch it before it shows up on light rock radio stations, but when you try to tell a friend, “Hey, listen to this sweet YouTube dot com video by this awesome band The National,” your ‘with-it’...

lake bell: the black keys. that's not my opinion, that's just a fact-they're hot. like the white stripes. you could have a playlist called black and white and let's fuck and it would work.

me: so adam texted and asked me to come out, but instead i stayed up until five organizing my itunes and making playlists
M: you're like a cat lady, but a music lady
me: le sigh. i guess this is true. the sad thing about a playlist is that unlike a mixtape, which required the recipient to listen to it in its entirety, people can jump around. mixtapes were made with such a deliberate purpose, every song in a specific order. they were so much more romantic. romance is dead!
M: no. romance is alive, the mixtape is dead.
M: where are the flowers i got you? i want to make sure they're dying properly.
me: in the kitchen?
M: oh, they look so nice on their noose. i went to get another friend flowers the other day but hers i got so they would live, you know, the reason most people buy flowers.

A Checklist For Your Mid-Twenties Birthday
Feel an evasive sense of dread whenever someone asks what you’re doing for your birthday, for any of the following reasons: You don’t have plans. You hate the plans you’ve made. You honestly don’t care about your birthday. You have plans that are more or less open to the public; yet have no desire to invite the person inquiring about your plans. You have plans that are fairly exclusive and feel...

Using your hands = "mental vitamin" →
austinkleon: When you do meaningful work with your hands, a kind of neurochemical feedback floods your brain with dopamine and serotonin. These happy brain chemicals are natural antidepressants, and we’ve evolved to release them both to reward ourselves for working with our hands and to motivate ourselves to do it some more. Filed under: hands decoupaging and crafting. dorky, yes? but i knew...

And besides that, Mrs. Lincoln, how was the show?
in a word…superb. the show this evening was garden state. something i should have seen a long time ago but for some reason, it was missing from my indie film repertoire. thanks to one of my best friends lisa, she understands my love of all things music and the slightly off kilter, who suggested this classic for our movie night. to note, the soundtrack is fucking fantastic and i was...
