i am extremely proud of this stacking set - a custom order for a fabulous client. twisted, beaded, half round and skinny stackers all combine perfectly. yup, i'm showing them off. gorgeous, right????
okay, seriously, i was the only goth cheerleader at my high school, back when NIN was cool. not sure i fully understand the newest NIN projects, but i can still enjoy the tracks off 'pretty hate machine' (i actually bought the cassette from sunrise records in the mall where i used to work. yeah. cassette. probably still have it too.)
oh, tortured trent reznor. how many breakups did you soothe with this masterpiece? (i know he worked his magic once with this song - an old boyfriend used the lyrics and some carefully planned tears to postpone the inevitable. it was well played, but alas, the relationship still didn't survive.)
since we were on the topic of cary brothers....
beautiful lyrics, much? (why can't i have blue eyes?)
(postscript - do guys really like wearing hats like that?)
since we were walking down retro memory lane... another fantastic cover (yes, i agree that i did do a disservice to the dream academy). not that i don't love the thompson twins' original version (molly ringwald and jake sharing that birthday cake? every girl wanted their 16th birthday to be like that. heck, i'd want my next birthday to be like that.) this cary brothers' rendition has earned a place on my playlist.
yeah, i know, i'm a geeky romantic. you can shut it now.
