Bobby Pins

While cleaning the kitchen my roomate found many bobby pins. These like most bobby pins found in peoples houses usually came from my head. I don't know what it is but I swear I repel bobby pins. My family says that I'm like the witch from this clip... I don't know what they are talking about....

The Snuggler and Other Tasty Morsels.

Check those short shorts.... mmm, high rise denim cut offs. 

This is great. I love the "I'm taking your picture! I'M TAKING YOUR PICTURE!!" guy.

This is only funny if you have actually seen the Hills before...which I unfortunately have. These too nailed it.

I believe it was a couple years ago when I for some reason was browsing around on myspace...(yes kids, remember that thing from back in the day!) and found a wonderful little band called Nico Vega. I usually am not on board with chick rock bands (example: the Veronica's, The Ting Tings, Veruca Salt, Avril Lavigne, the Donnas, Gossip, etc.) but the singer Aja Volkman is an animal! This girl can rip the tires of a car with her pipes. I seriously want to head bang, dance, and throw things around in my room whenever I listen to them. And for those of you who know me, you understand that this is not really normal behavior seeing as I'm an artsy fartsy hippy/fashion plate who doesn't wear a lot of black eye liner, converse or back comb my hair.

I see her getting compared to Karen O a lot, but as much as I love Karen O, Aja has a meatier voice. And one would definitely need some power to keep up with the bands, for lack of a better word, "rockin" songs. Most of the songs are pretty distinct from each other and are all great lyrically and instrumentally. I'd have to say my favorites are....

-Million Years
-Wooden Dolls
-Burn Burn
-Be Giving

They are coming to town on February 26 to El Rey and I for sure will be there. I might even back comb my hair a little.
