DON'T MAKE ME HAVE A GOOD TIME, PART IV
Should be working on my historiography of the formation of the Habsburg government in Spain, instead buying cheap jewelry from the internet. Latest acquisition: a nameplate necklace that says “bourgeois” from Forever21. $1.50, no foolin.’
For the past two nights, I have dreamed that I got a badly-done Metallica tattoo on my collarbone.
How to properly hide booze in your Facebook...
Me: You are not going to die alone.
Friend: Yes I am. Jesus Christ, it's been almost two years since somebody showed interest.
Me: Oh come on. You just need to get yourself out there. It's nothing to do with you.
Friend: It totally is! I mean everybody but me at least has a booty call or something! Even the goddamn Man Repeller has a boyfriend!
Me: She does??
Friend: Yeah. Seriously. Man. Fucking. Repeller. Fucking. Boyfriend.
Me: Well that's understandable. I'd give anything to have access to that shoe collection. And arm parties all day long!
Friend: ...You really don't get where I'm coming from.
I suppose I don't.
A muse for the ages
shitmystudentswrite: After hearing the music of the French troubadours, Petrarch began to write sonnets about courtney love. This is exactly how I got interested in music.
12:30PM - Set up OKCupid profile at behest of a friend. 12:31PM - Reflect that I’m not looking for a boyfriend, so set profile to “friends” and “activity partners.” 12:40PM - Finish setting up profile and go eat lunch. 1:45PM - Return to find messages from 18 different men, despite specifying that I was looking for friends only and not really saying anything at all...
Rabbi, how do you like my glasses? →
ludmirermoyd: About nine months old, but still good for the lolz. Rabbi Israel Hager of Vizhnitz bans yeshiva students from wearing “modern” contact lenses and metal glasses. “We must wear the exact opposite of what is worn in Paris.” Oh, Vizhnitz. Is this man completely unaware that plastic-frame glasses are being worn by all the hipsters nowadays and that metal-frame glasses are...

Partido Popular?? Really? I wish I was back in Spain right now. Everyone I know there needs a hug :(

TO CHET, MUCH LOVE, GARY
Why yes, the copy of Telekon I picked up at a thrift store today was autographed, thank you for asking. I wonder who Chet was and why he gave up custody of such a fine object.
My interaction with Mike Mills at the last ever...
"I don't have anything that I want to ask you to sign. And I don't have a camera. I just really wanted to shake your hand, and tell you thank you." (and then the stupid girl that apparently does sometimes still exist inside me started to feel this weird pinching sensation inside my cheeks, and I realized I was very nearly about to cry.)
"Wait. What's your name?"
"It's nice to meet you too. And thank you."
And then I awkwardly walk away, still feeling very confused by the stinging sensation, thinking to myself, "really Sarah? REALLY."

NAZI ROCK: THE MODE RÉTRO IN FRENCH POP MUSIC,... →
Today’s theme is “I know people who do cool things,” and I am continuing it with the latest article by my friend Jonathyne Briggs, a historian who wrote his dissertation on punk music in France. You can access it in its entirety via most university libraries, or read the abstract in French and English below: The phenomenon of the mode rétro, the cultural fascination with the...
pouch: The new Applied Communications website, linked above, is backended by Tumblr, so please feel free to follow it and share it with your pals. I’m going to be playing concerts more regularly and releasing a number of new songs in the nearish future — both with XMTR Derailleur and, eventually, on a new solo Appl Comm record. Updates and media pertaining to all of that will be posted on this...
