St. Vincent - Surgeon

I spent the summer on my back
And over attack
Steel you just to get along

Turn off the TV, wait in bed
Blue and red
Somethin' to get along

Best finest surgeon
Come cut me open

Dress the undressing for the wall
If mother calls
She knows well we don't get along

I tell the mailman, "Never you mind
I'll sift through the piles"
For him to just get along

Best finest surgeon
Come cut me open

Under the Covered Bridge

Happy Easter

I can't wait to have children so I can hide eggs and pilfer through their easter (and halloween) candy. Paas egg dye kits kind of suck. Today we didn't do much but at least went out and enjoyed the beauuutiful weather.

Daiso Japan Package

 It's no secret that I'm really 12 years old and love cutesy stuff. It makes me happy, okay? I've dreamed of visiting a Daiso Japan store since I first heard about it. A friend recently mentioned she lives close to one and sweetly offered to send me a box of stuff. Let's just say Iloveeverything.

Film Club: Great Expectations

Great Expectations is one of my favorite stories. This modernized version from '98 didn't necessarily receive outstanding reviews. Alfonso Cuarón even stated he has many regrets about the film and that it's one of his least favorites from his repertoire. I loved it for many reasons though. The style. The colors. The art. The soundtrack. Anne Bancroft is excellent as an eccentric Ms. Dinsmoor/Miss Havisham. The romance angle was perhaps a bit overdone and verging on cheesy, I actually felt a bit more emotion when it came to Finn/Pip's relationship with his father figure Joe. Francesco Clemente's artwork used in the film is both striking and odd.
