So I’ve been listening to a lot of Robyn, especially her Body Talk Album which is great. I noticed that the songs tell a pretty exciting three act story. Here it is. The optimistic version.
I’m too cool for this town. NONE OF DEM can dance. U SHOULD KNOW BETTER that to fuck with me. Oh, except you. Hey, you. You can dance. WE DANCE TO THE BEAT. Yeah, you can HANG WITH ME. Shit, this is getting serious. You better CALL YOUR GIRLFRIEND. Hey, that was easy and simple. Awesome. We are STARS 4-EVER! That’s right - I said forever.
Oh - wait - DON’T FUCKING TELL ME WHAT TO DO. My boyfriend is killing me. Did I say that out loud? TIME MACHINE. Shit. Guess I’m DANCING ON MY OWN. You didn’t even see me at the club! Dancing in the corner! Were you with your girlfriend? Did you even call her? I’ve got to GET MYSELF TOGETHER.Cause LOVE KILLS. Even FEMBOTS have feelings.
You know? We all fall apart and make mistake IN MY EYES. I got to get back to dancing. Cause I’m a DANCEHALL QUEEN. Yeah! I love dancing! I still run this thing. I feel much better about myself, that guy was a jerk. Perspective. Me? I’m INDESTRUCTIBLE.
You’ve probably been hearing about this heat wave. I don’t really having anything new to say other than it’s been tough not to complain all the minutes of all the days. It’s been hard to remember that I’ve done things this summer that have been awesome and haven’t made me pass out from heat. To help me remember and appreciate summer, I made this list title: My Summer Vacation Has Actually Been Pretty Great When I Think About It Like A Rational Person.
Recent Great Things:
ATTACK THE BLOCK:
This movie is stupid good. They took all the boring parts out! They just left the good parts! 90 minutes of movie = 90 minutes of good.
Seriously, go see it: http://drafthouse.com/blog/entry/attack_the_block_is_the_best_movie_of_the_year
HARK, A VARGANT
Internet, you already know about this. But it is so great! So funny! And what a sneaky and delightful way to learn about Canada. Love the way she draws faces. http://harkavagrant.com/
New community Acupuncture place in Austin. I liked it a lot! Very nice and knowledgeable practitioner
Ice Cream was on super sale today at Fiesta. I got one with blueberries and pie crusts mixed right in. It’s not healthy but neither is 105 degrees.
I like Blue Monkey the best. I want to drink this every day. It gives me superpowers I think. I do respond very well to the marketing on healthy drinks (like Kombucha.)
THE HUNGER GAMES
This isn’t super recent but still it has a hold of my heart! Katniss. Katniss. Katniss. These books changed the way I think about fiction and made me remember my love of reading and give me new goals as a writer - that’s a lot, Katniss! I’ve read a lot of really good books but nothing has grabbed like this. Or maybe me care so much about a fictional character. If you haven’t read these, you should read them before the movies because you’re going to want to homestead your own imaginary world on this. I have high hopes for the movie but I’m glad to have got there first.
Okay. Now I will do some yoga and appreciate the warmth of my room and how it is like a Bikram studio. So good for your muscles. Sweat is so good for your skin. If that’s a lie, I don’t want to know.
