Three Pears, three pairs, 3 X 2=6, threesome times two, six-tom, sex-a-ton, burn calories, hunger, pear, two more, and that makes three pears.

This week I rediscovered the power of the radio, simple pleasures. 
Source: WeHeartIt!

316/365: Choo Choo Cha Cha, Rinky Dink.
Indicator that I am obsessed with something = I download its entire music soundtrack. #MadMen

317/365: Magic, Joan As Police Woman.
Is it Cry Me A River by JT ? Or is it Verbatim by Mother Mother? Answer: Their beautiful love child.

318/365: Long Time, Cake.
Straight from the original new music source - The Radio - to my Shazam. Brilliant.

319/365: Hello, Martin Solveig & Dragonette.
"I just came to say hello." 90.3 FM is killing it today.

320/365: Verbatim, Mother Mother.
"I wear women's underwear and then I go to strike a pose in my full length mirror..." - ironic verbatim

321/365: Dixon's Girl, Dessa.
A wonderful combination of numerous musical techniques and genres. "It's not much, but my money's on you."

322/365: White Sky, Vampire Weekend.
Song so compelling, turns sky abnormal white color, watched #KingsSpeech again, everything, w/, pauses.

Mad List Making

You may have perceived by now that I'm a lister. I like to make lists, examples include: 
Below is my newest list project, apart from the ongoing contributions I make to my Listography books.

Learned From Mad Men List:
1) Slutty gals were called "loose women."
2) In the 1960s men and women didn't talk.
3) $75 dollars a week was a decent salary.
4) Sexuality was a customer relationship management tool.
5) Hitler didn't smoke.
6) Laxatives sabotaged 1960's U.S. federal election.
7) It was the original "I Didn't Know I was Pregnant" show.
8) Real estate was 'scary.'
9) The Hiltons were decent Bible country folk back then. Still super tall and skinny though.
10) Lawn mowers are terrifying.

Make a list of what you like to make lists of.

Nudity - the unintentional theme of this week's music. I will argue that all of these songs are either blatant about getting naked or are romantic enough to suggest putting on your birthday suit.

Source: We Heart It

309/365: No I In Threesome, Interpol.
I only listen to this song for its name.

310/365: Nude, Radiohead.
Internet overload is actually giving me vertigo. Listening to this song right now isn't helping. Hallucinating.

311/365: Never Hear Surf Music Again, Free Blood.
"There must be some fucking chemical, chemical in your brain." Intro to 127 hours.

312/365: Lovely Day, Bill Withers.
Just one look at you and I know it's gonna be a lovely day, lovely day, lovely day...

313/365: Ca Plane Pour Moi, Plastic Bertrand.
French song that encourages people to get naked; also it's a very popular media song.

314/365: Million Years, Alexander Ebert.
Keep telling myself he wrote this song about me after our brief encounter.

315/365: Where Else Is There, Royksopp.
"If I am the storm, If I am the one." Still haven't decided if she knows what she's saying.

These Jokes

These Jokes are by Demetri Martin

I asked "Can I get a trim, but it must have come out - Gay Beatle Please." 

A straw is your friend until you lose eye contact with a straw, then he will betray you and make you look like an idiot.

An ex-girlfriend is the same as an ok movie.  I liked it at the time but I don't want to see it again.

Whenever something good happens to me I wait two weeks to tell anybody, because I like to use the word fortnight.

I think bears and worms aren't very similar, until you use the word gummy. Then they are very similar.

Checkers taught me that one dude on top of another dude is a king, but life taught me that's a queen.

It's difficult to read this sentence without thinking about elephants.

Every fight is a food fight... when you're a cannibal.

I'm writing my book in 5th person, so every sentence starts with "I heard from this guy who knew somebody." It's going to be a long book, very gossipy.

He said "If comedy doesn't work out do you have a plan B?" I said "Hell no, my plans are numbered."

When someone shows you a picture of their kid what they don't want to hear is "Oh yeah, I have a photo of your kid too!"

Whenever I see an autobiography in the book store I just look at the 'About the Author' section. I'm like "Done, next!"

Sometimes I feel like boardgames could all have the same title - "Which One of My Friends is a Competitive Asshole?"

I want to launch a globe into space just to mess with astronauts - "Captain I think we're farther than I thought."

It's just frustrating you know, because it sucks that that whole group took all of refractive light.

My mother actually has an irrational fear that I have a Demetri Martin addiction.

Same week I became a 50 year old woman with my hangovers. Legitimately went to the farmers market, drank tomato juice and napped all day! Did see a lovely older woman wearing a balloon flower headband that day though. 

302/365: Trouble Weighs a Ton, Dan Auerbach.
"Same story here, year after year."

303/365: Oscar Wilde, Company of Thieves.
I support anything that supports Oscar Wilde.

304/365: Don't Look Back, She and Him.
"Orpheus melted the heart of Persephone, but I never had yours."

305/365: Jailer, Asa.
Ideal song if you're fiendin' for some emancipation.

306/365: Achin Heart, Pomplamoose.
It's the remedy for your achin, courtesy of Bob.

307/365: What's My Name, Rihanna featuring Drake.
Mama and I danced to this while cooking dinner together. She did the Flash Dance stomp. <3

308/365: Talk To Me, Dance With Me, Hot Hot Heat.
Time for a 2002 through back, also known as Joey Tomato's soundtrack on a Saturday night.

Watched Black Swan and had some wicked Banana Pancakes from Belmont Diner this week.

295/365: Look Right Through, Storm Queen.
Sounds like a modern remix of a 90s song. But really it's a modern song remixed to sound like a 90s song.

296/365: You Oughta Know, Das Racist.
"You should never argue with a crazy ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma you oughta knowwwww-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da"

297/365: Sweet Louise, The Belle Brigade.
"Well I just tell you now that I fell in love and I couldn't help myself."

298/365: Banana Pancakes, Jack Johnson.
Belmont Diner made me the most delicious ones this weekend, had to sing about them.

299/365: Swan Lake, Tchaikovsky.
He would have been honored in a mind fucked kind of way. #BlackSwan

300/365: Excuses, The Morning Benders.
Watch this video in order to fully appreciate this song.

301/365: Drumming Song, Florence + Machine.
"As I move my feet towards your body, I can hear this beat, it fills my head up, and gets louder"

Photography, it's the major hobby/possible profession for about 50% of the people I know. Having recently blissfully unearthed our old Holga I realized how much film and paper would be used in its photo development. Thus, I had to consider a way to lessen my everyday picture taking environmental impact.  By utilizing Instagram (a free iPhone picture editing and posting app) daily instead of the  lomographic original I won't feel guilt for the times when I do decide to use a plastic camera to capture moments on disposable film which develops on paper.

Download the app and start sharing artsy fartsy pictures with your friends. No paper, scanning, or facebook required.

Environmental alternatives, there's an app for-get it I can't say it.

It's been -25 degrees Celsius or below for the past week. Everything winter disgusts me to the point of nausea. Despite that, this photo/microscope project is so compelling I have to accept it. Photos by Akira The Don. 

If all of the snowflakes were candy bars and milkshakes.
