So many pictures of girls so skinny you can see their ribs, or who have fake boobs, or both. Grrrrim. Why encourage this unhealthy image of uncomfortability?
A good friend of mine. Oh how I wish I wasn’t retarded and could paint myself, or even sketch something on a page that I’d want to attempt to paint.
Oh my word this might be the sexiest woman I’ve ever seen on tumblr. I mean, as sexy as someone can be for their exterior; I’m more interested in a woman’s intellect and attitude than their looks. But fucking look at her! I’ve always loved women with some shape to them and red hair does strange things for me. Sexy lingerie too, stockings and garters.
One of the best hip hop tracks of all time, non-negotiable fact.
My memory sucks but I’m pretty sure this is by far the most I’ve been excited for a musical release this year and in all likelihood, even longer than that.
Caribou - Can’t Do Without You.
I posted this probably around about three months ago but here it is again because it’s excellent and the album is not far from release now. Love it!
This is the song I was actually trying to find that I heard on the radio a few weeks ago; it normally takes me six months to a year after hearing something to remember to check it out again.
I think this is brilliant musically and I like having no idea what the lyrics are about because singing some straight bullshit or a rehash of somebody else’s old cliché in slightly different words is one thing that ruins the vast majority of more traditional, instrument based band music for me. That and the way they almost all seem to be playing a shit imitation of something another band did really well 30+ years ago.
However, I guess this is the nature of genres and if you’re into a particular style of music you’re probably going to like stuff which sounds similar.
SBTRKT ft. Sampha - Never Never.
"It’s complicated when you gravitate towards yourself
On the other hand it’s hard to talk to anyone else
You can’t help, can’t help where your mind goes
So let’s harvest on the moon with the arctic snow…”
Deciphering that last line is beyond me but the images of coldness and distance are clear enough. I’ve listened to this track so much in recent months. Thinking about it I’ve been rinsing this album out ever since its release and (with the exceptions of the two tracks I never liked to begin with) I still love it, and there’s a new one coming.
I’ve reached the point where I’ve got most of what I wanted out of my holiday and have to wait til fucking Saturday morning to fly home. I want to go jam on the beach but it’s been raining for most of the last 36 hours and I’m running out of ways to amuse myself hence I’ll whinge on tumblr because hey you can scroll straight on by if you want but on the other hand perhaps somebody night have something of interest to say. Not that anybody ever responds (interestingly or otherwise) but you never know.
Ya know that sensation of “if I follow this far enough up the hill through the woods, eventually there has to be some decent panoramic views”. Found it eventually.
