ARE YOU A LOVER OR A FIGHTER?
It seems like troubled lady rock performer Chan Marshall of Cat Power notoriety is both.
"The Greatest, was released in January 2006. This was not a greatest hits record but rather the Matador Records-arranged collaboration with Al Green's guitarist Teenie Hodges and other musicians. Following its release, Marshall canceled previously arranged live shows in North America and Europe. She was struggling with a relationship with a young Miami investment banker.
Ultimately, Marshall used the hiatus to recover from what she described as a "psychotic break" that had left her feeling suicidal and was brought on by mental exhaustion and alcohol abuse. As part of her recovery she was admitted to the psychiatric ward at Miami's Mount Sinai Medical Center but left after a week, stating "being in there wasn't me."
She later likened the experience to "a pit of hell.""
|Yeah, she sounds messed up but the album cover is cool. |
Now you can replicate the vibe of this album cover with this boxing glove necklace from Brass Mafia
|Available from Corky Saint Clair $79|

These 3D deer heads are fun to put together. It's a bit of an IQ test figuring out which component slots into which groove but it shouldn't be to hard with anyone with any kind of concept of 3D space. I put it together in record time, but it's not a competition!
Made from sturdy plywood, it smells a bit like IKEA when you open the package.
The deers come in 2 sizes: small and large.
The mooses come in mini, small and MASSIVE.
Plywood deer and moose heads available from Corky Saint Clair.
Small deer head $35, Large deer head $70,
Mini Moose head $25,
Small Moose head $35,
Massive Moose head $240

"Sea otters are pretty special creatures. Living at sea without ever having to set paw on land, they’re also known for using rocks when hunting to dislodge prey and crack open shellfish – making them one of the few tool-using mammal species. This awww-inspiring photo shows two of the lovable sea dogs in their habit of holding paws to avoid drifting apart.
It’s common for sea otters to kick back together like this in groups called rafts. A raft usually consists of 10 to 100 animals, though the largest reported contained a staggering 2,000-plus. Depleted numbers due to hunting for their fur up till 1911 as well as vulnerability to oil spills have made sea otters an endangered species – though a picture like this one can only win them more friends."
The best bit is where they lose contact and then reach out to find each other's paws again.
- I like rainbows, crystals, coloured pencils, swimming, manifesting, visualising, poetry, going out for breakfast, graphic novels, air conditioning, miniature anything, clothing made from synthetic fabrics, travelling, travelling, staying in nice hotels, headphones, husbears + soft hands. I don't like people who make me feel tired.
