JELLO FLAVORED VITAMIN WATER WHILE HARMONIZING WITH PET SOUNDS

Butt // scratch //
Sometimes I use sticky notes to jot down writing-ideas so won't forget them. I found this note this morning with a few reminder-keywords alluding to my past few posts.

{I'm starting to figure out where the color influences for new site came from... so it's not the electroclash-Luxxy air seeping in through my windows, it's that damn free Wired mousepad.}

...I was going to write about how, regularly, my Levis cords rip—every pair, evenutally—vertically up the left-side butt cheek. And how that might reveal that I don't posess perfect 'calypigeonness' but I couldn't find a link to the definition of calypigeon or even the correct spelling of calypigeon so I decided not to... calypigeon refers to 'symmetrical butt cheeks'. Priest says it's Latin. If Priest weren't far far far far far away in a time zone which is tomorrow he would be urged to provide a link.

+ more yummy pinks and greens "...this car is Madonna"—Tim Connor not dot com

+ fencemag.com: nice cover art by R.W.

+ some interesting controversy over a subway spycam photo {link corrected}

"ZHIGGA ZHIGGA ZHIGGA—VVVVT VVYTTT VVVVVVYT"

red's hands : red is a  dj
hands

We rented Scratch. They show nice footage of all the djs' hands. Love that Mixmastermike and his big necklace. All the djs attribute their interest in 'turntablism' to the first time they heard Grandmixer DXT'S "zhigga zhigga" sounds in Herbie Hancock's Rockit (everyone except the dude who lays claim to the invention of scratching: Grandwizard Theodore). The movie includes clips of the 1983 Grammy performance of Rockit: the stage's 3-pairs of gigantic, torso-free legs, ominously suspended above the band, moving robotically in forward-walking, mid-air motion to the beat, while clothed in off-white flowing business-suit pants is hilarious today, but its also something you might see (with backward-glancing-tongue-in-cheek) at a club today. I'll stop with the eighties stuff soon.

Cette photographie a une certain... I don't know what, mais je l'aime.

"LET'S GET PHYSICAL—PHYSICAL, I WANT TO GET PHYSICAL, LET'S..."

bikeseat is pretty

Remember Olivia Newton John's song? It went on: ....Let's get animal—Animal, I want to get animal....... or is it abdominal, abdominal?... now I'm not sure, butt {« ha, I'm leaving that typo because it really just happened like that just now i swear to god, and i feel kind of embarassed—aren't Freudian slips great?} this month, starting now, I'm going to 'get physical'. Back into yoga... back into my pants that are now tight. Remembering that time in my life when I used to swim every day... checking the temperature of the pool water on the markerboard every day, and going "ooh, 72°..." ...Forgetting my paddlock and sneaking my clothes into a locker which seems most likely to be ignored...showering in flipflops. Yeah, that's sooo me from now on.

Starting the day after tomorrow.

some Matrix:Reloaded hidden meaning explained

YES WE'VE REDESIGNED, "BECAUSE SOME THINGS NEVER CHANGE, BUT SOME THINGS DO"
....We don't know what that line in The Matrix Reloaded means, either...

but this site has finally changed. Yes. It's not quite finished.... i'm tweaking as i type this... still some polishing to do. And later next week when we're sick of that pink so much that we'd swear never to use the word Electroclash again except that we've never used it before... at that time, more things will change, yet. { like photo galleries and maybe some twinkling }

diner for lunch fries with ketchup and mayo. mark's having a baby.....
