A few of my favorite things
Apparently I haven't posted in nearly a month, which has lots to do with traveling and too much work and my computer dying a most gruesome and untimely death a few weeks back. In lieu of a big fancy proper-like post, I'm going to ease back into this with something much more hodgepodge and mishmash and scattershot, as that's what my brain's insides feel most like these days. So, here, a few things I love at the moment and want you to love too:
1. Jennifer of Hollywood
For some reason bracelets make me nervous and itchy, but cuffs are a-okay. The ones I want most right now are from Jennifer of Hollywood, an Esty shop I first discovered with the help of Kime Buzzelli (whose October 18 benefit you must attend if you live anywhere near on L.A. - please please click that link for more info). Some beauties:
2. Rilo Kiley live
Home in Boston last Friday night, I took my kid sister to see Rilo Kiley for her 16th birthday. Jenny Lewis wore this fantastic one-piece get-up complete with sparkly-gold hot pants, and damn was she hot to trot. My favorite moment was "With Arms Outstretched," which got me all choked up and will forever live on in my memory as the grandest show singalong of all time. I even get all teary watching the YouTube clip:
3. Random otherness
Such as: Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon by Devendra Banhart (oh so quiet, but gorgeous and perfect for bedtime); Giovanni Styling Glue (best thing ever if you're frizzy-headed like me); the new Stina Persson website; Annie's Book Stop (an old love rediscovered last weekend in Maine - I could probably live inside the store for a few months or so). And something I wished I loved but I just don't: Giant Drag's cover of "Oh Father" by Madonna (you can go listen on Stereogum's little jukebox thing). I like it much better when Annie sings like a weird little cat-girl; here she sounds half-asleep and just sort of awful. Boo.
