re: Spring

Esteemed Reader,

Spring is nearly upon us. Act and dress accordingly. Jean shorts, tank tops and sunburns are ascendant. Bicycles are unstoppable. Smiles are contagious. Sunglasses, Sunglasses, Sunglasses. Flip-flops are just barely this side of tolerable. Barefeet are lovely. Bare bodies are lovelier. Sweaty, Sweaty, Sweaty dance parties are mandatory. Undershirts are despicable. Man-cleavage, Girl-cleavage; if you got it, flaunt it. Unbutton as far as good taste dictates and then at least one more. Don’t be afraid to get a bit nautical. Don’t be afraid to get a lot nautical. Subtlety can be wonderful. So can excess. Make something beautiful as the sun rises. Make something beautiful as the sun shines. Make something beautiful as the sun goes down. Make something beautiful even if the sun isn’t shining. When you get down to it, almost as much as we wish we were birds we wish we were fish; fly off something into the water. Vitamin D intake is not a zero-sum game. Indulge guiltlessly. Bonfires are well worth smelling like one for the next four days. A good swimsuit all but guarantees a good time. Hugs are pretty rad. Eating ice cream is totally subversive. So is love.

Your Springtime Lover,


Happy Tuesday!

I’m in a Chromeo-related throwback mood, maybe it has something to do with Canada taking us down in hockey, who knows. So, I’m going way, way, way, back to the video that got me hooked on them in the first place:

Maybe I should add a “Things the French-Canadians Got Right” category.

So… this band from berkely is killing it on the blogosphere. add me to the list of sycophants: . feel free to fast-forward through the jibba-jabba. the chords structure reminds a bit of a significantly more upbeat version of this which is in turn an updated version of this: which is in turn an updated version of a previous recording which I prefer but can’t find on youtube.
