Re: makeup and cosmetics

coloured mascara, anyone? I'm dark--olive (or something) but quite pale in the winter. dark, dark hair. lately the idea of coloured mascara (particularly red) appeals to me. please dissuade me if you think I'm becoming a teeny-bopper, teeny-goth, returning to the nineties, or some other such undesir...

Contemporary Poetry Resources

I have noticed that in the "poems we like" thread, most people are posting works by poets who aren't writing anymore. What about poets who are writing, right now? I have a difficult time keeping up with contemporary poetry, but I am interested in immersing myself in it more. Might you be able to sug...

Re: Swimming

Believe it or not (it's maybe more unexpected if you really know me), I used to play water polo. While I liked the game, I found the length swimming just as fulfilling. It's very meditative. I think the hot shower afterward adds to this mental and physical cleansing experience.

Re: It's bloody dangerous by bicycle

Do you ever take your bike on the bus or boat? I recently went to Anacortes to see Parenthetical Grrrls. We rode our bikes to the bus, then the ferry, and then rode from the ferry terminal to town. It was a nice ride, albeit a bit difficult seeing as my 5-gear bike has only 1 functioning gear at the...

Re: A Phil Elverum (Mt Eerie/Microphones) thread

<3 Phil Elverum so much.
Also, there were months after its release when I couldn't stop listening to that "Whatcha Doin'" song Tomlab released on the David Shrigley's Worried Noodles comp. Phil and Nick Krgovich was a little more than I could handle.

Yeah! Second that. I think my station charted Old Man Luedecke at #1 recently. And I am totally digging Adam & the Amethysts.

Re: But seriously, Canadians.

Laura Peek and the Winning Hearts . Not my cup of tea, but she's a doll. Joel Plaskett has some radio (and Zellers) friendly poppy stuff, plus he's a local hero of sorts. The whole Just Friends label would probably appeal to indiepoppers. In regards to Joel Plaskett, I totally ordered one of the la...

Home Remedies

I'm not sure that this is a hobby exactly, but it's an area in which I have an interest at least. I recently went to the public library and found a book called So Beautiful: My Grandmother's natural beauty creams, lotions and remedies . It's got things like "To cure baldness, rub the head night and ...

Re: What the Heck Fest

Yaaaayyyy!

If you're in the San Juans you should go to that bakery that does all lavender baking at Friday Harbour. I have only heard of it but it sounds positively dreamy.

I am excited. It's my only summer festival too.
