mixed tape monday

huh. guess i poked the proverbial bee hive last week. that tartan, it's some seriously caustic stuff. what I have learned: people have deep convictions about the plaid. do not bring your dislike for tartan up at dinner parties {try something like, "gay marriage-yes/no" instead~much less controversial} tartan is not for everyone. most people love tartan. and finally, dusty rose is a charming color.
queue the music
1. MC Solaar - La Belle et le Bad Boy
2. Metric - Don't Think Twice, It's Alright
3. Yann Tiersen-Shannon Wright - Dragon fly
4. Beirut - Nantes
5. Neutral Milk Hotel - Communist Daughter
6. Sufjan Stevens - Romulus

You had to just touch it with your toe just one more time, didn't you? :)

You are the best Megan! A great sense of humor will get all of us through the wintry weather and economy. PS I love my chenille and faux fur cozy throws this time of year.

mrs b~ you know me. i just can't help nudging the hive once it's fallen to the ground. just to see if i can get one last buzz.

Seleta~ how great is MC Solaar. Also try IAM. They're a bit more hardcore french rap, but great workout music if you're into it.

i'm looking at that new neutral, 'dusty rose' in a whole different light. will it replace the cameo pink of last season? so much to ponder in these dark winter months. said...

Too funny! I went to Catholic school and I have an aversion to some plaids. Oh well.
