Tomorrow, the 29th of April, Prince William and Kate Middleton will be married. The guest list notably lacks the President of the United States, but does include the likes of Kanye West. Being a modern wedding, with cars in place of carriages and a rapper along side royals, it has been said that the couple could be the first in royal history to have a prenup. I personally think this is a great idea.
Here is my playlist for the future king and queen:
Rulers make bad lovers
you better put your kingdom up for sale
An old article from The New Yorker talked about “cool hunters” and the paradox of finding cool and having it move on to something else (among other things, it was a really long article). Though the writer was talking in terms of Reeboks and Polos, it made me think about Warped Tour and Tumblr.
As alternative bands become popular, many of their fans reject them for “selling out” or because they’re not “cool” anymore. This is why Warped Tour is being advertised on the radio and having long lines of little girls wanting to meet Chistofer Drew while older fans who want to mosh and have a good time (ahem, me and my friends included) complain.
Similarly, it’s inevitable that more people will make their way to the site that those of us that love Tumblr as it is don’t approve of. Xanga had its day. Myspace did, too. Now the majority obsess over Facebook and Twitter, but Tumblr is a Cool Hunter’s dream so, unfortunately, the unthinkable will happen and most of us will move on.
I could name some books you’ve most likely read, like “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” or “Speak,” and that would be a fantastic reading list, but I’d rather introduce whoever takes the time to read this to some great, underrated books instead.
you should also remember the unfortunate suicide of Jan Paul Beahm, aka Darby Crash, of the Germs, on December 7, 1980. Normally, a musician’s young death would make them immortal - Kurt Cobain, Sid Vicious… But Crash’s death was over-shadowed by John Lennon’s assassination.
This Monday, I start back to school. Some of my friends will be attending the same college as me. Others are working. In light of this, I have composed a list of songs about graduating high school, going away to college and moving on.
In researching for this list, I found some other lists I liked.
This week, a new comedy is in theaters, much like the popular Scary Movie and similar parodies. Vampires Suck pokes fun at “contemporary teen angst and romance movies" and more specifically at the Twilight Saga.
In response to this, I’ve decided to make a list of songs about vampires, werewolves, and good old sucking.
I do not take part in the whole “thinspo” scene. I’m a plus-sized girl, and I’m pretty happy with my body. I have moments of insecurity, but for the most part I really don’t mind it. I wish I could be a little more confident in my own skin, but I know that losing weight won’t make me more confident or outgoing. You are who you are, no matter the size.
However, if I were to look to photos of celebrities, models, etc. for thinspiration, I would not choose the typical collar bone shots, or skinny little scene girls. I would choose the classy women I find beautiful, like Katy Perry and Dita Von Teese. Or, better yet, I would choose Chantal Claret of Morningwood.
Chantal is not a skinny -Hollywood type. She is a voluptuous woman. Despite her size, however, she is still confident and sexy. That is more inspiring to me than any “thinspo” photo.
A list of 13 songs that are, or seem to me to be, about luck.
Pop-Tarts Brand is renting a building in this popular tourist attraction, between Sixth Ave. and Broadway. The New York Times has said that the store is more focused on marketing and image than it is on sales. As far as sales go, however, the store sure has a lot to offer.
Menu items at the cafe include Pop-Tart Sushi composed of three crumbled flavors of Pop-Tarts, wrapped in a Fruit Roll-Up; a cinnamon roll topped with cream-cheese icing and pieces of Pop-Tarts of the cinnamon-roll variety, appropriately called the Sticky Cinna Munchies, as well as about 30 other snacks.
Other features at the store include computers, Pop-Tarts themed merchandise, and a Varietizer. The computers give visitors access to social media sites, a Memory-styled game with pastry icons, and, of course, Pop-Tarts World! Merchandise ranges from cups and mugs, to shopping totes and lunch bags, all the way to customizable tee-shirts. And what is the Varietizer, you ask? Why, it’s a custom-built vending machine for selecting your favorites-only-variety pack, of course! This machine allows customers to choose any six two-packs out of the 23 regular Pop-Tarts flavors for a personalized box of delicious toaster pastries.
At this specialty shop, not only can one enjoy frosted pastries, but each hour, the visitors get frosted, as well! At least that is how an operator working on the project described the hourly light show to The New York Times. The show starts with a red and a white light, quickly followed by “pulses of light, “all different colors to mimic the sprinkles,” he said, “then another really bright light” to evoke wrapping the tarts in foil.”
Unfortunately for those of us who won’t be venturing to Times Square this fall, Pop-Tarts World will only run through January, “at which point executives will decide whether a store all about toaster pastries makes long-term sense,” says The New York Times.
Personally, I think this venture makes perfect sense. I only wish that this store would join forces with Cereality, the cereal bar and cafe mentioned in my Eat, Sleep, Tumblr post. The two could form the ultimate breakfast bar!
Julia Roberts’ new movie, Eat Pray Love, based on Elizabeth Gilbert’s memoir by the same name, follows the protagonist as she embarks on a journey of self-discovery. Her “journey of self-discovery,” for whatever reason, involves traveling the world and eating lots of food every where she goes. In reaction to this, I composed a list of places I’d like to journey to for a bite to eat:
These were just the first ones that came to mind. Hope they made you hungry(:
