Dri - Two are One



Dreamy song and video by Kansas singer Dri. She had a nice Indie Pop cum RnB album out a while ago. I always wondered what camera/ film stock was used for this video.

just the bits!

Hiya in 2015! I had a few posts on here, but I kept scrapping them because they felt not quite "there". 2015 is a bit all over the place for me thus far. I've felt some of the highest highs and lowest lows I've felt in a WHILE and we're only two months into this year. I'm excited to see where the rest of the year takes me honestly.
I hope I can keep an open mind...
I wanna write a bit about what I've been up to at some point, so this post is brief. I miss seeing new content on my blog I guess... heh heh.

Listening

Princess Nokia has been doing a podcast since 2014 and it's low key the best thing on this planet. I've cried, laughed and pounded my chest in approval for this beautiful "urban feminist" and her cool friends on this show more times than I can count. Topics covered range from Magical Girl anime to the importance and absurdity of Empire, to menstrual cycles, to cheap Mexican booze... Honestly??? I'm in love! Currently trying to persuade my best friend to see her for free on March 10th. If you, like me, are stuck in a town that heavenly bodies have yet to grace, live vicariously through the past episodes here...

Been bumping Kali Uchis' new mixtape since the day it came out. Its nice, feel good, no brainer music and at times she reminds me of my beloved Amy Winehouse...



Kelela's new song and video though...

Looking

Trying to pick up a DVD copy of Daughters of the Dust. The full movie was online a while back but eventually got removed. All the new copies I seem to find are WELL out of my price range if they are even available. I'm also watching some of the works of Catherine Breillat (cue snooty french laugh) intermittently between studying for midterms. "À ma soeur!" is REEEEALLY interesting. I was always hesitant to watch it, but I've been pleasantly surprised thus far. I'll probably post about it here when I'm finished...


Lusting
*Tim Gunn voice* If I had do describe my aesthetic: It oscillates between sweetheart tomboy and eccentric librarian. This JW Anderson FW15 look is definitely appealing to the latter.

Also a fan of this bag.
I just want a nice pair of Adidas Gazelles for under 50.00 but apparently I'm asking for too much...

Learning
I picked up a copy of Just Kids by Patti Smith after YEARS of procrastinating. It's honestly one of the sweetest things I've read in a while and it makes me wanna talk to beautiful tragic boys, drink coffee black, and make something stupid, but amazing... and maybe skip all the horrible drug addiction, homelessness and terrible incurable illness parts yah know?
"Where does it all lead? What will become of us? These were our young questions, and young answers were revealed. It leads to each other. We become ourselves."

I have a blog I started on a whim for original short stories, brain farts and poems. It's over here and there's also a permanent link on the blog in the sidebar... Its not the best thing ever (I'm pretty bad at grammar, can't you tell?), but it was fun to make and I think there's something there...idk check it out.

Saturday's Song: Frank Ocean - Memrise


Frank Ocean debuted a breezy new song this weekend on his tumblr. A welcomed pick me up for this crummy week.
I memorized the wayward expressions
Never look down
Never let you see me down...
Lyrics from here
