Things I am liking this month include…
The new fun. CD – Some Nights.
Their sophomore album is ah-mazing. The lead singer Nate Ruess is from the now-defunct band The Format. This new album has a great beat to it. A little bit of waltzy, beatboxing, choir-y goodness. As you can tell I am not a music critic, however, the main reason I love this band is because of their lyrics. As a writer, I find them very inspiring and the emotion that comes through is great late-night writing motivation.
I mean, how can you beat this?
And that’s alright; I found a martyr in my bed tonight/She stops my bones from wondering just who I am, who I am, who I am
Plus, his voice. Oh his voice.
To quote my cousin: “I want to have sex with his voice. If this ever becomes scientifically possible, count me in.”
Ditto, cousin. Ditto.
You can stream the album here before you buy. You’re welcome.
Sandy Ebner’s piece at Connotation Press. Meg Tuite turned me onto this and wow.
It takes a brave one to write it. And a brave one to read it.
Creepy Horse Mask
Can you believe that this plastic horse face is a mere $25? I expected $50, maybe even $200 to be paid for an item such as this. At a bargain steal of $25, you can bet your sweet horse mane that I snapped one up ASAP.
Why you ask?
To take photos like this.
My goal in life is to borrow someone’s Mustang and drive it while wearing this mask. Because HOWAWESOMEWOULDTHATBE?
