Is it really Thursday again, already? Whew!
Crazy-times. (Oops, it’s Friday now! Hah.)
So hard not to be a totally nocturnal marsupial these days!
♡ The other night I had insomnia and stayed up way too late
reading Lil Wayne interviews and developing a big crush. Oh Weezy.
Here’s a treat, if by chance you’re not familiar with his particular
kind of martian magic – my friends DJ D. Lefty Parker + Alison Fensterstock
of New Orleans posted their Waynecast – a mix of mixtapes old and new
and my favorite music to work to. His massive work ethic is a serious inspiration to me.
Also: Mister DJ Rusty Lazer told me that his favorite thing Weezy’s said is that
“..If he wants to see a Shakespearean play he won’t go to the theater…
He’ll just get 12 naked girls to act it out for him!”
So all this got me thinking, and while I was thinking,
I got this message from my friend Peggy,
saying.. “Lil Wayne called – he & Vince Noir (aka. Noel Fielding)
wanna take us on a doubledate when I get back to town – can’t wait!”
So that’s my dreamboat-doubledate right now! Me + Weezy + Noel + Peggy
would go to a fancy ice-cream parlor where we could have any flavor we wanted
(How about carrot? Root-beer! Telephone flavor! Fig + Fennel!)
and then we’d all go bowling, and then get on a boat and sail off to Tahiti!
Once we arrive in the islands, hopefully we can see that naked lady Shakespeare play!
Oh, wait- also I’d invite Dr. Oliver Sacks! I have so many questions for that man.
Also, he has the most adorable accent ever. He sounds a bit like Edward Ka-Spel at times.
Okay, so what’s your magic fantasy double
(or triple/quadruple/et cetera!) dream-date of the moment?
♡ There’s a wonderful article in the Home and Garden section of
The New York Times online that I highly recommend reading-
and you must look at the photographs in the slideshow!
♡ Despite how ridiculously busy I am at the moment,
I started reading Perdido Street Station, by China Miéville- finally!
It’s bizarre that I had never read it, and it’s the perfect
big fantastical chunker of an escape for summertime.
♡ If you haven’t ordered your copy of Coilhouse Issue No. 3 yet,
I promise you will thank me after it arrives. It really is an incredible
treasure to behold. I’m savoring mine. Mmm, glossy savagery + genius!
It features many of my favorite artists and musicians, including (but not limited to!):
Vania Zouravliov! Marina Bychkova! Nils Frykdahl!
♡ I learned a bad-ass new card game from the aforementioned Mister DJ Rusty Lazer
called Russian 3 Card- I’ll teach you how to play it! It’s pretty addictive, and super-fun.
♡ The divine Miss Tamera Ferro made my day/week/month/year
with her sweet words and special mix she made just for me!
Go listen! I’ve been playing it over and over and over!
♡ Coconut Bliss Bars are my favorite thing to eat lately.
Best popsicle available, for real. Maybe I should go have one right now!
I love coconut anything and everything. It’s so fluffy and heavenly, and makes me
feel incredible. Mountain Ocean’s Coconut Skin Trip lotion
is the absolute best for the summer- I wish I could drink it!
♡ Instead of drinking lotion, I will go to Cheer Up Charlie’s,
the best raw-vegan-chocolate-magic served in a coconut
out of a trailer window by an adorable smiling creature
that you will ever experience in your lifetime. For real.
Their raw coconut horchata is pretty damn orgasmic.
With that, I depart for a bed full of dogs and a head
full of visions of coconuts with straws sticking out of them
