Extra Extra Extra

I am ready to move...not because my building smells (which it does), or because I am sick of living alone (which I am), or because I am tried of having the same people as me for money every single morning (totally over this), but because I want a reason to buy new "art" work for my home. I want more walls to hang it on and more space to fill up. Here is what I am thinking I need....
This first print I am really in love with. The story behind it is as follows "Commissioned by the British Ministry of Information in 1939, the original poster was meant to be distributed in the case of a catastrophic event, such as a German invasion. That invasion, of course, never happened. The 2.5 million copies of the posters were never distributed, never seen by the public and were eventually pulped." No not only would I have a great print hanging on my wall, I would have a great little tidbit of history...and who doesn't love that????

In the time of a recession I think this message is quite important...sure I may not be able to buy those Christian Louboutin shoes that cost $1,200, but I can buy this poster for $8 and feel mighty good about myself?

And then there is this beauty. I heart Sufjan Stevens...but even more I heart HAMMERPRESS...AND THEY ARE FROM KANSAS CITY!!!! True I am not from Kansas City and I no longer live in Kansas, but I love looking at their posters and knowing exactly what the venue looks like that the concert was in. It just feels like home....So if anyone was thinking to themselves "you know that Mary Rose sure does need a gift..." holla at a girl!

There are just a few things in life that can make me really really really happy. There are just days where I get really down and need something to pick me of those things is of course the musical episode of Buffy Once More With Feeling. To me television has never been better and I am instantly in a better mood. Another of my pick-me-ups is any kind of cupcake. No matter how blue or how down I am, put a cupcake in front of me and I am five again and instantly think..."wow things...don't suck....". But the end all be all of my pick-me-ups is....This program just feels like a best friend. The one that makes you get out of bed and take a walk with them when all you really wanted to do was lay around and be sad. It is the best friend that makes you laugh and cry at the same time. It is the one thing that has never ceased to bring a smile to my face. I think that a radio show might be my best friend. Or my devotion might be because of this guy...

Oh I love thee....So the point of this ramble is that This American Life is going to have a live broadcast (which is not something rare...they do this on occasion)....BUT THE BEST NEWS EVER????? It is going to be broadcast live to theaters across the nation....and one of the guests is JOSS WHEDON. As Ben put it...this is like a Mary-gasm! So on April 23rd I know that no matter how bad my day might be...I will have the best night of my life!

My Last Name Is Control

Two things really....

The first is that I cut it off....ALL OF IT (ok all but maybe three inches).

The hair was cut by the ultra cute Brad Hough at Sine Qua Non Salon. It is the best haircut i have had in years. Two: It is almost spring here, which means the return of my flats and (my favorite part) no socks!
Also I have "Nasty Boys" by Janet Jackson stuck in my head. Have for three days now...I really need to get a new song stuck in my head....
