Target undies are GREAT.
I’m quite late to this post, but I just wanted to pop in and thank both Drew and you for this take on the song, because I’m friends with the guy who wrote it.
I met him at Comic Con in San Diego, over 15 years ago, around when I was midway through high school! I used to make comics myself back then, and that also used to be a really fun convention to go to, where magical, random encounters could happen. Case in point...
I’m so sorry you’re in a place that doesn’t currently have one! So many book deserts have popped up since B&N and Amazon decimated so much of the indie market and it breaks my heart. Everyone should have (at least) one great little bookstore nearby!
I hope you enjoy it! I sometimes wonder whether non-dancers will appreciate it even half as much, and then I remember the friend who initially recommended it to me has nothing to do with dance and he loves it. It’s a really lovely showcase of Neve Campbell and her beautiful dancing, too.
Whaaaat, no way! Okay, in fairness I think I never would’ve guessed you because (a) I have no idea what your actual last name is and always just assumed the K in your handle was part of the handle (lolll), and (b) I’m never really on Tumblr anymore since my company’s first title dropped, but I didn’t realize you were…
Haha no worries, that’s cool! (You should pop by my shop if you’re ever in the area again! We’re secondhand, unlike Daily Planet, but still.)
God dammit, this is lame as hell of me, but I barely slept this week, and you have somehow totally stumped me, which I’m sure means it’s SUPER OBVIOUS. I’m sorry that I am an idiot today.
Will do, and thank you for the reminder! And I’m sorry you’ve been through it yourself during the Thomas Fire. I know that fire season is basically just year-round now, but that doesn’t make it any easier to deal with.
Thank you! And ugh, so, so sorry for your sister’s loss of her home and the whole town. Reading about Paradise and seeing the photos has been just terrible. I do really hope, like you say, they’re able to turn it around (eventually) in a positive way, somehow, but yes, it will take a long time.
Aw, thank you! Fortunately, a go bag in my case isn’t really necessary — not like my days growing up in SD — as I live in a part of LA that never burns. Griffith Park up the hill sometimes does (like it did briefly yesterday), but my roommate has been in our building for 34 years, and never a fire to be had here.…
Haha wow, good guess, how did you pick up on that?
What a week. I haven’t been personally affected by any of it (yet), but I have friends from Thousand Oaks, and several who have been evacuated (or are on notice at any time) due to the fires. I live right near Griffith Park, and fortunately the little brush fire up there was contained yesterday... but today, the winds…
CA only owns 2% of its own forest land; the federal government (which, under the current hellfire administration, has slashed it with alarming cuts) owns over 60%. So... no, not really. Nice try, though.
ETA: Not two minutes ago, Angelina Jolie left, after spending about 20 minutes browsing and shopping for books with a couple of her sons. She is tinier than I would’ve guessed (that said, I’m a 6' tall giraffe), and alarmingly beautiful to look directly in the eye, holy cow.
How could I forget? Damn. Christopher Nolan is probably our most regular celeb at my current digs. He is super polite, always dressed very nicely, usually comes in with one or both of his kids, has GREAT taste in music (and really enjoys chatting about it), likes my Peter Gabriel lyric tattoo, and is generally just so…
To be fair, it is an awesome bookstore! ;)
It really is! She’s swept into my shop a couple of times, and my manager and I both love her; both times we were just sort of quietly in awe of her, and That Hair.
HE IS A REAL ANGEL, THO.
I’m just going to assume that Banks follows the same rule as everyone else on the Breaking Bad crew -- I spent a week on the set with them while S3 was shooting (even ended up as an extra in a scene, because the AD thought I was bored! lol no just really tired, but it was fun!) -- which is that everyone involved in…
