Logic Will Break Your Heart Forever, Be Brave

the stills' 1st album is still soooo freakin' good! i've been listening to it a lot lately, & it never ever gets old. it is probably one of my top 10 fave albums of all time. it's one of those albums that you can listen to straight through w/out having to skip a song. you can listen to it when you're happy or sad...sleepy or hyper. their last 2 albums were pretty good as well, but i don't think they've topped the 1st one unfortunately. i was looking for some of their music videos on youtube when i found this:

i guess the guys do modeling on the side too haha...lookin' spiffy

It's A Sign!

i'm pretty sceptical when it comes to astrology mumbo-jumbo, but i gotta say this is pretty spot on:
Compassionate Cancer, your nurturing spirit is like a welcome-home embrace, feathery as a goose-down blanket and stable as a pillar in the Roman Colosseum. You’re the zodiac's Mother Goddess, ruler of the nest. Playing caretaker comes as naturally to you as breathing. Not that you'd bless just anyone with your maternal gifts. Over time, your shell hardens as you learn to protect your soft underbelly from harsh outside influences—callous, careless people who don't respect the sanctity of tender emotions. All applicants desiring your trust must prove their merit and valor. You'd rather have three amazing friends than 50 casual acquaintances. For you, intimacy is the be-all, end-all—even if it takes you aeons to get to that stage. Female friends are your lifeblood, as the spirit of sisterhood blazes fiercely within you. Unfortunately, your trust issues can limit you from venturing into the world. At some point, you must decide to take a risk; otherwise life becomes dull and decidedly limited.

funny pictures of cats with captions

there's this really good article in next month's vanity fair by jim windolf about how the rise & popularity of "cuteness" is weakening & dumbing down our society even comparing it to a form of sadism lol. while this may seem a bit far fetched, when you read the essay it's hard not to kinda agree w/ him. he talks about how this overtly sentimentalization of the way our society communicates ( ie emoticons : ), phrases "aww" "yay", people using pix of themselves as kids for their default on facebook, the overwhelming amount of hits that "cute animal" sites are getting, japanese cartoons, etc.) and this reversion to our childhood w/ candy & cupcake sales growing higher in the past few years shows how our culture is becoming more & more lazy/carefee in a sense. the "log in & tune out" generation no longer sees "edge" as cool, but being viewed as "unthreatening" is the ideal. theres no more of the tortured & dark cobains of the early nineties or even the romanticized druggies of the 1960's , instead we have indie rockers w/ teddy bears & unicorns in their music videos. it's funny how ever since 9/11, the war, recession, & all the other dark stuff that's been going on in the new millenium we've found the need to become more child like and less like responsible adults. it seems escape & abandon are the way we've decided to cope w/ a decaying society. something to think about.
