a week in mobile photos

Saw Davis while he was in KC for 12 hours
Then got ready to angst out to Fiona Apple
I was in a daze after the show
The Midland is such a pretty theatre

JEFF the brotherhood was on Letterman!! ♥
got ready to see 'The Dark Knight Rises' at midnight-ish!

i want you to wander silent past my outstretched arms

fast as you can

Earlier this week I saw Fiona Apple live and I can't even put into words how fucking amazing it was. I cried...twice. Whatever...it was that time of month, okaaay? 

'When The Pawn' was and still is my life. I've lost count how many times I've gone to that record when I was depressed, angry, confused...I always felt she got me. I listen to her records and I feel a little less insane and less alone. 

"You feed the beast I have within me
You wave the red flag, baby you make it run run run
Standing on the sidelines, waving and grinning
You fondle my trigger, then you blame my gun"

"Sometimes my mind don't shake and shift
But most of the time, it does
And I get to the place where I'm begging for a lift
Or I'll drown in the wonders and the was"

"This mind, this body
And this voice cannot be
Stifled by your deviant ways
So don't forget what I told you
Don't come around
I got my own hell to raise"

forever we tried to make it right

If it weren't a thousand fucking degrees outside everyday, I would totally have a bike gang this summer. I'll just have to settle for doing Destiny's Child-esque dance moves in hair salons. 

Thanks to Natalie, I am starting to get into HAIM.

saw a glimmer from the way beyond

I've been tiptoeing around making this post about seeing The Maccabees last month in NYC for a while now....so many emotions leading up the show, during the show and after the show that I don't think I can properly write about that night without sounding like a major fangirl. Plus, it was one of those nights where you just want to keep certain aspects to yourself or close friends because it was just that magical. 

"Some things are hard to write about. After something happens to you, you go to write it down, and either you over dramatize it, or underplay it, exaggerate the wrong parts or ignore the important ones. At any rate, you never write it quite the way you want to." - Sylvia Plath

It was nice to let loose that night. It's been a while since I've been to a show that I was SUPER excited for. You know, in a way that you are counting down the days, you are getting butterflies in your stomach, it was like when I was first going to gigs for pure fun as kid. Those good ol' days where I would skip school or leave early to queue up hours before the gig actually started because I HAD to be upfront to see my favorite band. After several years of this "lifestyle" of traveling and seeing shows for work rather than pleasure, it was a breathe of fresh air.

 It was nice to know that I wasn't becoming completely numb to the experience of going to shows. I wasn't backstage barely paying attention to the show because I had seen the band a million times and/or it didn't really matter if I was upfront or not because it was a band I was super into. I wasn't there to take photographs for anyone, I was there for myself. I was there to get lost in the brilliance of this bands music and performance...dance, sing every lyric, make heart signs, feel young again, be wild, feel alive, be free. And goodness, what a magical evening it was.

I can't wait until I see them again in October with Florence & the Machine. Although the show won't be as intimate as the Webster Hall show in NYC, I am excited nonetheless and even more so since my friend Catalina is coming down from Chicago to see them with me.  

If you haven't seen The Maccabees live yet, you need to put that shit on your bucket list.
Their music will change your life and their live show will blow your mind. 
You'll walk away with a little bit of your heart missing because those lovely lads stole a piece of it. 

Here are some photos from that night. Taken with disposables, my film SLR and iphone...
You can see some polaroids here and here

So, the other day my friend Loulou sent me the loveliest little package.

Needless to say, I had to play dress up and take some photos. 
So, I ventured ALL the way to my backyard.
Pranced around for about 15 minutes and the result = a plethora of totally vain photos.
 this is where the photo magic happens

be yankin'

So, I FINALY got all caught up watching the HBO show Girls. I had stopped around episode 6 and this morning I dedicated myself to finishing the rest of the season. I still can't say that "I'm like SO totally obsessed" with this show but I do enjoy it when I remember to watch it. 

The clip below has to be one of my favorite scenes out of the ENTIRE season. If for some reason I were to ever get married, I am pretty sure a song like this would be playing because I am such a conventional young lady like that. 

Okay and the crackcident episode with Shoshanna was pretty amazing. 

What is everyone else's thoughts on this show now that the first season has finished? Do you think you are going to watch the second season? Am I the only one that thinks that Charlie is a babe, even after he got that haircut? Also, I can't be the only one that thinks Marnie is a megabitch (I was going to say another word but I decided to take the high road)? And Adam? Hannah? Shoshanna? Jessa? Is this show really the Sex & The City for the 20-something year olds? If so, how do you identify with most. I remember I used to be a Carrie (but wasn't everyone?)

Go on now...discuss.

dreaming in french

Right now I am reading 'Dreaming in French' by Alice Kaplan. I'm only a few chapters in but it is completely engrossing. Kaplan profiles three young remarkable women on their journeys to Paris in the 50s/60s. This book has me constantly jotting down notes in my journal so I can go back and look up the books they were reading during that time and various passages about how they felt being an young American woman abroad. I can already say that I highly recommend this book.
