Mix Tape – 04

May 24, 2016
tape-499x345

I’ve started compiling playlists of the very best music cherry picked from my YouTube subscriptions before they fall into obscurity and I never find them again. I have pretty eclectic taste so it’s kind of all over the place but I thought I’d start sharing them here. The very best music cherry picked from my YouTube subscriptions between May 16th and May 22nd 2016!

YouTube has produced another bountiful harvest this week. This playlist is all over the place so there’s probably something here for almost everyone.

Genres: covers, remixes, stoner metal, trap, live music, and a Drake remix that is made better because Drake has been completely edited out of it😛

I’ve started compiling playlists of the very best music cherry picked from my YouTube subscriptions before they fall into obscurity and I never find them again. I have pretty eclectic taste so it’s kind of all over the place but I thought I’d start sharing them here. The very best music cherry picked from my YouTube subscriptions between May 9th and May 15th 2016!

YouTube has produced another bountiful harvest this week. This playlist is all over the place so there’s probably something here for almost everyone.

Genres: Indie Rock, Witch House, Stoner Rock, Covers, Live music, that damn Meghan Trainor song that’s been stuck in my head since last Tuesday, an awesome new Lonely Island track, NEW Stone Roses and much more!

Help, my audio book has been “Bricked”

May 13, 2016
throw-a-brick-o

I’ve gotten into the habit of listening to audio books during my daily commute and have had the misfortune of coming across Scott Brick’s narrative work more than once now. I mean how could I not? He’s so prolific, narrating over 700 books so far (WTF??).  This man is the human equivalent of cilantro, people love him or hate him and think he tastes like soapy death!!  He’s so divisive I took to the internet to see what other people are saying about him. I am amused, there is even a petition (which I totally signed)! Some of what people are saying needs to be repeated as a warning to others though! Read more…

Crafty Bitch – kawaii lamp

May 7, 2016

kawaii lamp craft

Today I made a boring lamp shade super cute at the request of The Little One. It was really easy and now I kind of want to do this to all the lampshades in the house, but since I’m no longer a prepubescent girl, and not quite yet a crazy old lady (SOOOOON), for now I will restrain myself and let my lampshades stay boring for fear of judgement from other boring adults.

Tools:

  • Scissors
  • White Glue
  • Glue Gun
  • Glue Gun Stick
  • Pom Poms
  • Paintbrush
  • Colour Printer
  • Paper

Hot glue the pom poms around the base of the shade. Look for a good kawaii face you can use to print out. The Little One found this super cute one made by Hannah Nance.

Print it out large and cut out all of the shapes. Then brush the image side of your pieces with glue and apply them to the inside of the shade. When lit your kawaii face will be more visible.

The Big-Ass List of Christmas Movies

December 21, 2015

I’ve assembled a list of notable Christmas movies and TV specials. I’ve organized them chronologically and separated them into MPAA ratings (or a close approximation when not available). I haven’t watched all of these but I will eventually (red are 2015 releases, and if on mobile bold are ones I’ve seen).

RATED G

Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer (1964) (G)
Oooh, the full movie is here for you.

Emmet Otter’s Jug Band Christmas (1977) (G)

The Snowman (1982) (G)
The themesong is so beautiful…made even better with Nightwish.

The Life & Adventures of Santa Clause (1985) (G)
Out of all of the Rankin/Bass stop animation’s this one is my favorite. Written by  L. Frank Baum it has wonderful characters and I feel is more emotionally mature than some of their other work.

The Christmas Toy (1986) (G)
The original Toy Story!!
