#tbt to my first apartment in Chicago which was 120 years old that literally bordered the red line station in crimefully charming Uptown/Edgewater. There were exposed bricks in every room and had 3 locked doors with two different keys at the entrance. The guy upstairs loved to blast Tori Amos and left Queer Eye For The Straight Guy on the DVD load screen every night while he slept. A girl who wore all black and had a door decorated for Halloween 24/7/365 lived across the hall and constantly jingled when she walked. I had a window facing a brick wall.

If we remember the internet for one thing, it will probably be fandoms.

Once when he saw a little puppy walking on its hind legs, he said ‘It’s not that you expect him to do it perfectly, it’s just that you’re surprised the puppy does it at all,’ which just goes to prove that I not only play the violin and the piano, but I also know who Dr. Samuel Johnson is.”

"She played the violin, she read Shakespeare. She was not the village idiot. As a matter of fact, she made village idiots out of those who supposed such.” –Ray Strait on Jayne Mansfield

#Tunesday: SIREN’s First Single, “I Think I Like You”

Since 2014 seems to be the Year of Contemporary Pop Music Appreciation for me, I’m just going to roll with it. That means that I definitely allowed myself to rock out and sing along to “I Think I Like You,” the first single from Kat Ostenberg and Skylar Stonestreet, the duo behind new pop group, SIREN.

The Cat and the Fox

This curious pair was spotted playing by fishermen on the shore of Lake Van in Turkey. Not much is known beyond the fact that they’re very cute and very playful.
