Not usually a band that I look up on YouTube, but after catching their latest vid on Scuzz, I thought I’d share –

Love this video!

Bowie and Reznor!

I may just faint from the ridiculous excitement I experienced when I found this video this morning –

Be still my beating heart!

I accept that I am probably a long way behind those ‘with it’ cool cats who have their fingers on the proverbial pulse, who have been aware of this collaboration for an age now.¬† I’m comfortable with that.¬† In fact, it underlines the opinion I have about music, art and literature in general.¬† It may be ephemeral, but that just means that it is there to discover at any time, you just have to look behind you once in a while.

That is the beauty of music etc. you can find something that speaks to (or for) you and is in line with where you are in that snapshot of the moment.¬† You get it.¬† You feel it gets you.¬† It resonates somewhere in your soul.¬† I don’t think it is an obscure, complex or unattainable thing, in fact, it is the exact opposite.

I may be getting a little off-track, but I enjoy ‘just going with it’, from obsession to obsession – or as I like to think of it – being interested and excited about something.¬† Is that so wrong?¬† Or weird?¬† Again, I don’t think so.¬† Nor do I want to get bogged down in defining either of those W words, today.¬† I’d take¬†either over feeling world-weary or apathetic any day of the week.

Back to the star of the post, the vid, the lyrics of this are incredibly apt with my most recent perspective (realised whilst having a cup of tea in the park with a good friend of mine), which is that ‘normal people’ scare me.¬† They are so hostile, stressed and afraid of being human.¬† Scared that they won’t be able to maintain their apparent conformity with prescribed norms.¬† I’d like to examine the doctor.

I’ll stop before I get carried away, as is easy to do when you can’t hear the other person.

If I have introduced you to a tune/vid/artist that you enjoy Рaces!  They are both seriously yummy too.

Pick your level for today…

…and enjoy it.

 

Urgh… HOT!!!

I hardly ever moan about it being cold, so I’m entitled to say “It is too hot”!¬† I’m well aware that this is nothing compared to other countries’ hot weather/temperatures, but I’m British ok, so I like it colder, cloudier, windier, rainier… you get my drift.

I have problems sleeping well in these temperatures,¬†waking often and remembering crazy, heat-induced dreams.¬† I think it is time to start stopping off¬†for some frosty frappucino-type¬†beverages, coolness and caffeine, mmmm.¬† This is definitely¬†the time of year¬†for cold drinks, shade-seeking (as I do not yet own a gorgeously Goth parasol)¬†and ‘full-on’ fans.

Speaking of cold drinks, I only have one sachet of Kool-Aid left from my pal in America, so I’ll be making more of these –

Thick Strawberry Milkshakes. 

They are easy and scrummy.

Please feel free to share any culinary coolers, they will be gratefully received and shared.

Today my incredibly sweet (and handsome) hubby took a trip into town with our daughter, they returned with lunch and two pressies for me!

Check ’em out –

This is the same game/box, can you tell the difference (apart from my using the flash!)?

Yes, the picture changes.¬† Tee hee.¬† Look closer –

Goodly, chaste lady becomes –

Rampant, blood-thirsty Vampire!

You gotta enjoy the little things.¬† It actually looks like a fun game, for 3-6 players… any takers?

They also bought this back for me¬†–

Yes, that is a brand new copy of Mr Manson’s latest album!¬† Am I the luckiest, most spoilt Mummy ever or what?¬† How perfect are these gifts for me?!

Cool gifts on a hot day ūüôā

I hope your Sunday is a good one y’all!
