On Party for 60 Minutes with This Xaphoon Jones Triple J Mixtape

In my book, Xaphoon's greatest achievement is making this MGMT/Bob Marley mashup.

I'm still stuck on the latest Fiona Apple album, to be honest, and will probably (happily) never get un-stuck. But I've really enjoyed Daft Punk and Daughter, too.

On The AARP Pie

@iceberg I'm only 26 and I have, more than once in the 4 months since my birthday, forgotten my own age. And with a birth year of '87 I have to do semi-complicated subtraction to figure it out ... whyyyyy.

On Friday Open Thread

Pinners, what do you do when you feel like you need a vacation from your own brain? More than anything else it feels like I'm in a somewhat dysfunctional relationship, and if it were in fact a relationship I would already have done the "we need a break because everything you do is starting to get on my nerves, let's not talk to each other for 2 weeks" or whatever. Which is unfortunately not an option here. I am just getting sick of myself, which is sad because I normally think I'm super awesome!

I have been dealing with it by smoking a lot of weed but it's probably not the healthiest alternative?? Yoga has not really helped either. I feel fine when I'm with other people (and when I'm stoned/drunk) because I have something else to focus on, but whenever I'm alone it's like this neon marquee of unhealthy, unhelpful thoughts is going through my head over and over again and it makes it tough to motivate myself to do anything besides, like, mindlessly surf the internet. Or smoke weed.

I don't even have anything to be particularly stressed about beyond my perennial foreveralone-ness (which I have dealt with mostly-successfully for 26 years now) so I'm just like ??? brain what are you doing? Did one of my RAM slots suddenly stop working or what?!

On The Friday Night Pie

@sarah girl That's a subset of the by the "too high to move" wedge for me. Yes, I do have great coping mechanisms, thanks!
