Those little keys are so cool.
I posted this on Facebook a month ago when I was too lazy to update LJ (I also hoped I'd have more art to post with it, but I didn't, so here it is anyway). Here's the original description: "Law and Order: What the hell is that. I've had SVU on all day while working, got to an episode about a birthmark that didn't really look like a birthmark, and then I guess I just lost it because this is the dumbest thing."
Yeah, I'd say that's about right.
Still working on Wendy on Wheels #3. I'm almost done, though. I'll probably put some prints up on Etsy and then finally work on updating my site and getting a commission page set up and whatever else. Anyone know of a good place to get prints of my artwork/photos made that's not too expensive? I used to just make my own when I had access to UMSL's giant printers, though I might go back up there and print some stuff out anyway.
Today's "Music Tuesday" on YouTube (I actually just now noticed that was even a thing on YouTube) is all about Duran Duran. Which is pretty cool, I'm down with the Duran. But if I were going to do a Music Tuesday, like I am right now, here's the stuff I would feature:
Melt-Banana - Shield for Your Eyes, A Beast in the Well on Your Hand: Anyone who knows me well knows my favorite things to listen to go somewhere from "soft and melodic" to "noisy and incoherent." Melt-Banana falls so far into "noisy and incoherent" that they come out the other side into "completely bad-ass." I think they're awesome, but if you're not into crazy Japanese noise rock you might find them impossibly obnoxious. Cell Scape is a great album, so if you do like this song you should check it out.
Asobi Seksu - Thursday: Here's one for the "soft and melodic" category, taking some pretty strong inspiration from dream pop and some from shoegaze. Coincidentally, the singer is also Japanese and has a really high pitched voice, though it's pretty and fits the music well. If the next band were Japanese, my Music Tuesday could have a theme! But they aren't, so maybe I'll try again next time.
Autolux - Kissproof: I wanted to link to the specific song, but I couldn't find it anywhere other than their Myspace. All of their newest album, Transit Transit, is on there though, so... I guess pick a song and go hog wild? Kissproof is probably my favorite, though Census and Audience No. 2 are great, too. Autolux has this knack for perfectly combining heavy drum and basslines with light vocals (mixing two things I love together so well!), which is why they're one of my favorite bands.
