Tweet, tweet (part II)

All right, I know I already did that post on Twitter less than a month ago but I follow some of the funniest people ever. To be honest, I can understand why some people don’t like Twitter and find it obnoxious–after all, it really can be just a series of mundane life updates. I think that they fail to see so many people who are actually hilarious or interesting on Twitter. You’d think that 140 characters wouldn’t be enough to make you slouch over in your chair laughing, but it is. Plus, nobody makes you follow people with stupid instagram pictures of their lunch and sentences about how hot it is outside. Here are some of my most recent favorites:

1. Gabby Noone@twelveoclocke

Please tell I’m not the first person to think of making a fashion mag for menopausal women called Haute Flashes

You know what guys, say what you may, but I sincerely think that Gabby’s Twitter is one of the best thing ever. I probably favorite her tweets everyday and I never regret it.

2. Hazel Cills@hazelcills

i can’t even deal with the new grimes video. like the pig tails and the banana snake and the meteor hammer and the limo ohmygod

All right okay I KNOW I PUT HAZEL on my last post about Twitter but I favorite almost all of her Tweets as well, and guys, this is totally justified, I mean LOOK at the new Grimes video:

Yeah, that’s right.

3. Autumn Quesnell@daiseasdaiseas

“Ugh take me back to the 90s, I miss my childhood, the 90s were better” says the girl born in 1998.

Autumn is one of my favorite bloggers if I didn’t mention that already, and her tweets are even better. Also, accuracy.

4.EMA@EMAthorstar

also, do I have any obligation to keep my old retainer? ALMOST tried to put it in my mouth…

EMA’s music is my favorite and also this is an undeniable resemblance to my life as I often try to put my retainer in my mouth and then don’t.

5. maddie@hexgrrrlfriend

i want to date a boy who is mute so i don’t have to listen to hetero male drivel.

Maddie is hilarious and this is no exception. Even though she’s not as “famous” as the other people I posted here, she is pretty damn great.

6. Jamie Keiles@msjamiekeiles

the only ppl who should be allowed to eat hotdogs and watch fireworks on july 4 are the people who are doing shit to improve this country

“Preach it!” I said, reading this tweet. “Oh, look, hotdogs!”

7. Ali Koehler@hernameisali

West coasters don’t appreciate summer like east coasters do. You’ve got three months of that shit, you gotta live it up.

More preaching involved here. Ali Koehler’s tweets are some of my favorites.

8. Caitlin@bollykeckers

i started crying at autoplay on a blog, ok time to turn the internet off

The sad part about this is that I’ve probably done that numerous times because autoplay is disgusting.

9. abby@abigailitaa

I still call memes “me-mes” probably because I’m so self involved…

I kind of find this the best thing ever.

10. Abigail Weinberg@abigailweinberg

Why aren’t I famous yet ugh

Things everyone can relate to. I’ve talked about Abigail’s blog a few times and she has the best tweets.

Good Music (II)

As you know, good music is when I simply post a good music video once a month that you should probably watch for your own good:

So you thought Grimes couldn’t get any cooler? Well, she can’t individually (lol duh) but with her new L$D group with Tragik, Kreayshawn, and Blood Diamonds, we are all dying and wondering if awesome is a genetic and where the hell to trace it.

I love how I posted that short and sloppily written thing about graphic shirts yesterday and then I get 3 likes and then I compose a long post about suburbia and the politics of Lena Dunham and an Anna Sui show and I get nothing. I’m not complaining I JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND.

Regardless, I have created a list of things I have enjoyed this week:

1. Grimes:

Listen to “Vanessa” once. You will fall in love. Grimes (Claire Boucher) is a super cool chick from Canada who makes amazing electronica. Her album “Visions” came out in February and is available on iTunes. I highly recommend checking out all her albums (as that’s just the latest one.) Also in the video for “Vanessa,” all the girls are super gorgeous (not that beauty defines people but women are hot, forever and always that was literally the worst defense for such a horrible statement oh my gosh I’m tired.)

Via this tumblr.

2. So I read Nylon (I hope you don’t judge me for that) sometimes, and their young Hollywood issue just came out. There was an article featuring Juno Temple and she’s doing this movie called Little Birds, which takes place in a town right outside of L.A. I’m so excited for it! It looks really good (and scary):

It might be a short trailer, but personally I really think it could be good. Or it also could be bad, too, I can’t tell yet. Either way I’m going to see it.

3. Rookie never fails to inspire me…I find all of their articles intriguing and insanely refreshing, but this one almost beats them all. As a society in America, we are always told college is what we’re here for in order to get a good job. While this may be true, I have to revert back to the good old New York Times Magazine again–they had an article about students who graduated from Drew University. I think that in the end, it doesn’t matter really which one you go to but so long as you go to a decent one and even better if it’s prestigious–anyway, a lot of the college grads of Drew couldn’t find jobs. For the life of them–some submitted TONS of apps and it didn’t matter. They majored in literature but were working in chain stores in malls. So Rookie’s article kind of makes sense at a time like this–do WE REALLY need college right after high school? Sometimes I wonder if it’s better to work and meet new people without working. You can still educate yourself with books (sounds stupid, but the library always educates me.) Plus, it might be good to figure out what you like and then go to school for it later. People always act like you need to know what you like now and it scares me. I’m going to college, there’s no question about it, but I think it’s good for a small group of people. And it was great they published this because people are so judgmental about it.
