Lazy Sunday, 1 December 2013

I’m still nursing a tryptophan hangover, so you’ll have to fend for yourselves.


Reminder: You’ve never done anything original.

Have a great week, everyone.

What the Girls Call Murder

Liz Phair’s Exile in Guyville was one of the first things the good folks at Plan 9 fixed me up with. I was barely 18 and damn, if it didn’t feel like she was talking right to me. The record was, what, about 15 that summer, and she had already committed her latter-day sins, but it’s a marvel every time I hear it even now. Here’s an oral history of that record (which celebrates its 20th birthday today!) via Spin

You Didn’t Look Free to Me

This is a great video! Don’t orphan your instruments, folks.

Made by Kentucky Hands

A Kentuckian made this. I live in a county named for his ancestors, and that, my friends, is a fact. Also, he apparently used to date a dark haired woman with my same last name, so when people ask me if he dated my sister I don’t say no.

Yes, I’m going to do this until the Derby.  I’m not sorry.

The Only Good Vine I’ve Seen.

Vine seems to be mostly drunk people taking 6-second videos of falling down, but this, THIS!

Fun Fact: I have lain the the bed from which these notes were written, and yes, it was as humbling as you’re imagining.

Dr. Feelgood

After listening to this segment on This American Life, I’ve been trying to figure out who the true freaks* are in my social network. I’ve spent maybe an hour this week researching ASMR (autonomous sensory meridian response), and thus far, no one can explain what it is you feel like. I get that you seek out things that make you feel tingly, but doesn’t…everyone do this? Or is this response to the whispery ladies special? Readers, please advise. I am genuinely curious. Surely one of you must know!

*I mean that with love, freak.
