Cheese & 70s-ish Music

Put cream cheese on your pizza OMG!!

I’m sorry I keep using all these filters on my crappy iPhone photos. It’s not even Instagram, because I don’t have the patience for that shit. I’ve been using Camera+ and Flickr filters because I feel like it maybe makes it seem like I don’t care that I’m just taking crappy iPhone photos instead of getting out an actual camera, making an effort to take a good picture (which requires setting up lighting OMG), plugging the camera into the computer, and blah blah blah I’m a total lazy ass. Anyway, the point of this photo, which you’re probably totally missing thanks to the filter and a mass of unnecessary words, is that you should put cream cheese on your pizza. Holy shit. My ideal cheese blend for pizza is now as follows: mozzarella, parmesan, cheddar, and cream cheese. It’s hard to distribute cream cheese onto a pizza, though. Ben tried to grate it, which didn’t work, so he cut off little pieces, which ended up more blobby than he would like (I, on the other hand, totally approve of blobbiness). Next time, he’s going to try freezing a block of cream cheese for 1/2 an hour or so and then grating it. I’ll keep you posted (thrilling!).

Also this song is great and you already know this but I can’t wait until summer when we can do things like drink beer outside at Tour de Fat. February is Cabin Fever Month.

Song for a Movie

without comments

At the end of the movie of your life, when you drive into the distance alone in a black Cadillac from the 70s like the one we had when I was a kid, all you can hope is that this song is playing and when the lights go up everyone in the audience holds hands and sings along and maybe someone passes a joint around or something.

 

Just a random thought I had while driving home tonight. Welton Street is remarkably quiet and dark already. I like winter because I like variety in my weather but man, every February longing for spring and summer hits me hard.

Also, for the record, I think MGMT’s Congratulations is one of the greatest musical accomplishments in recent memory, Girl Talk’s All Day being the other I can list right off the top of my head. People who don’t like Congratulations are like people who don’t like dogs. I don’t get it.

This song is magnificent, one of the best things I’ve heard in a while. If possible, listen to it loud on big headphones.

Wild World

Sometimes I get a random song stuck in my head. If possible, I like to change one of the words in the song to “Sadie” and sing it to her. Oh Sadie Sadie it’s a wild world. I am quite in love with this little dog.

Changes

I usually prefer the remix of this song, but lately I can’t get enough of the original version.

Okay, this is better than the song I posted the other day. Classic, especially the dramatic dialogue at the end.
