Pooper Bowl

Can I just say... the movie Troy is awful. I've watched the beginning of it twice now over the years, and I didn't even make it to Hector's death the second time. SO BORING. The only likable character is Hector, and he bites the dust immediately, so basically we get little girl Paris and epic douche Achilles, doing man things for three hours. I don't even know, because I've never finished the movie. All I know is that Josh Groban sings during the credits, uuugh, why must it be such a dreadful movie!

I don't know why I'm talking about Troy in a "style blog" but there you go. Just a little thing we like to do here: talk about completely irrelevant crap. (And yes Troy was Greg's Netflix pick, I take no responsibility!)

I'm wearing: H&M everything.

I swear, I'm a walking advertisement for H&M. It's not my fault! I love their stuff so much. I'm trying really hard not to spend my San Diego Comic-Con money on shopping there (oh yeah by the way SDCC sold out -- epic fail)... don't worry though, I won't. I'm probably going to use it to visit my mom in Missoula this summer, and maybe get an iPhone. I don't know though! Should I get an iPhone? You'll never convince me there's a cooler non-Apple phone out there, but should I spend my money on it is the question. Those smartphone plans are the worst and strike a paralyzing fear into the recesses of my soul, though. Who has a smartphone on Verizon? Any words of wisdom? Is it really like $90/month? Yuck.

So I've been listening to a lot of Mumford and Sons lately, as recommended by my mom. I'm really loving "Winter Winds" and "Little Lion Man" especially. I also re-acquainted myself with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, which have been on repeat lately. Patrick Wolf is coming out with a new album painfully soon here, and if I'm guessing correctly (I'd better be!), Shiny Toy Guns are coming out with a new album as well. I fucking hope. Their facebook keeps updating with weird cryptic messages, and their website has a countdown with only a few days left on it, so...! This could mean a new album! I would pee myself with joy. I've yet to listen to the new Decemberists album though, which is pretty fail of me. I've seen them three times in concert, so what kind of fan am I? I'll answer that for you. A lame one.

Anyway what kind of music do you nerds listen to? I'm making myself sound like kind of an indie fart, but I don't just listen to hipster trendy stuff (I... don't think I do anyway). My favorite band ever is Jethro Tull. Effing love them. As in, I'm going to get a tattoo of their lyrics at some point. Any bands you love so much you'd tattoo them onto yourself permanently? What lyric would be on your skin forever? My first tattoo is going to be a Stargate, though. Beat that.

1. You look adorable and I love the detailing on that skirt.
2. Get an iphone. Dont even question it. Yes, you want to buy it. And yes, you want to spend the money on it. This is your conscience speaking.
3. I looove your music choices. Ive been all for the band phoenix lately, and ofcourse temper trap and I kicked it 2005 and have been listening to death cab non stop. Feeling nostalgic I suppose.

love!! xo

Totally agree about Troy. We watched it in my Lit class after reading the Iliad, and literally just made fun of the movie the ENTIRE time. My favorite artist is Andrew McMahon of Jack's Mannequin and Something Corporate, but if we're talking nerdy tattoos, I've got the Deathly Hallows symbol tattooed on my back (and I looove it)! :)

aliboo! said...

lovelovelove mumford + sons too! also, i oddly have an Against Me! lyric tattoo, but because i thought it was just a quote my friend put on an alphabet bracelet for me, not lyrics. Sad. Also, I intend to get meWithoutYou lyrics at some point, hopefully maybe! but stargate oooh ahhhh coool!

Shibby said...

Love that outfit and when I first discovered how good H&M is I had a phase of 'walking ad' :)

I knew you'd have a cool taste in music! I don't think I'd get lyrics tattooed I'd like a dragon, though I think the bf would much prefer your plan of a Stargate!

Get an iphone! Reading your words feels like you've plucked them out of my head you wont be happy with any other phone :)

You look too cute <3 I think the only band I would love enough to get lyrics tattooed would be lemon demon, and I have no idea what lyrics! Probably from 'don't be like the sun' c: x

Paper Heart Girl said...

Ahhh, cute outfit! I must get to H&M asap! Happy Monday morning! xxxx

Anonymous said...

You look adorable! You make me want to wear glasses!
Also, a lyric tattoo is next on the tat to do list! I have trouble choosing sometimes though because I am a lyric freak and know so many. However, I always seem to come back to the same Death Cab For Cutie lyric...

margarita ts said...

love this outfit!perfect skirt!i want it!!!

Heather said...

Kate is not your conscious. THIS is now your conscious, you really want to spend all of your money at H&M and then ship it to me. ;) Jk, you just look really awesome which makes me all jealous and junk.

My favorite band right now is Iglu and Hartley! The songs "In This City" and "Whatever We Like" are amazinggg.

Look at you skinny minnie! I have the same H&M problem. I can't help it either. I've just given in to my addiction.

As for be honest I've been into everything you mentioned above lately. I need to get my hands on that new Decemberists album too. I've also been listening to a lot of Bob Marley and Sublime lately. I think because they remind me of summer and I am so effin sick of snow.

Damn it, I feel like I need to write an essay everytime I read one of your posts because there's so much to comment on.

First of all, new layout?!! It's AWESOME! I love the picture of you in the header. Your hair is amazing.

Secondly, I love the outfit. I feel like I need that skirt because it's the perfect shape & it's green.

Get an iphone. They are so wonderful. They are so, so, so wonderful. Although mine bit the dust (after a few years of me chucking it all over the place) and I'm waiting til next week so I can switch to verizon. I don't like at&t.

& laaastly. You probably have an idea of what I listen to from my blog, but besides all the classic stuff I post on there I'm also a bit of an indie fart. I also worship Radiohead. Lately I can't get enough of Deerhunter. I saw them twice last year & it was not nearly enough. Oh & Jethro Tull is great.

I've been listening to Mumford and Sons for a year now and love them too! I call my younger son my Little Lion Man because his middle name is Lion (but it is Aryeh which is Lion in Hebrew and we thought it was cool).

I've never shopped at H&M ever because I had two friends that used to steal from them all the time and so I out of habit stay away from that store because I used to sit outside of it as they did their thing. haha. I'll now look at you looking all pretty in their clothes all the time, okay? Love that shirt especially. it is really cool. You look great.

gee said...

1) i hate troy as well. blah. i actually went to the movie theatre and wasted $$ on it.
2) there is nothing wrong with wearing H&M head to toe..i would do the same thing if i had a store close to me to buy everything in sight.
3) I f'n LOVE shiny toy guns..i thought i was the only one..ahhh. my one of my favorite song is Frozen Oceans
4) you look beautiful and i want your hair.

Troy sucks! There's aren't really any other words. My iphone is my best friend. Its the only things that saves me during boring 2 hour lectures. I highly suggest making one part of you life. And, you look absolutely awesome. I usually avoid hunter greens but you rock it and make me want to go out and buy everything in that color!

CAITLIN said...

haha awesome. i also fell asleep during troy... twice. so i guess i agree with you that it must be pretty much the worst movie ever. too bad, because i was really into the history of the trojan war when i was a young gal (marion zimmer bradley and the firebrand? yes, please).

my boyfriend is the one who knows about music in our household. i am a musical idiot. which is kind of funny since i'm a singer and have always enjoyed playing/performing, but i've never been a music nerd in the indie sense. i just like dancing to it and bobbing my head on road trips. anyway, boyfriend played me some mumford and sons recently and it = awesome.

MISSOULAAA:) Blogger meet-up?

I love H&M. It's too bad being isolated up here, there isn't one...for 500 miles. Womp womp womp.

Blowfish Elise said...

I love Jethro Tull too!!!!

I feel like we need to be friends, you're probably the only other girl my age I've met who likes them. (Or even really know who they are...)

My other music recs you might not like...these days I'm 90% house music and 10% hip hop. My ipod broke, and I feel like I'm kind of in musical limbo right now.

However, if you haven't listened to Animal Collective, do it. Although I'm sure you're hip to that. :)

A few things:

1. Mumford and Sons rock. Seriously.
2. I adore your H&M obsessed closet. And that top; it looks so cozy!
3. "so basically we get little girl Paris and epic douche Achilles, doing man things for three hours". You made my life.
4. Stargate! HAHAHA.

cute outift.
i dunno, i find great music in almost every genre...i like electro, rock, psychedelic-rock, indie, alternative, goa, hip-hop, reggae, electro-swing, chill out....the list goes on. but there are some geniuses like david bowie or the rolling stones which i will love forever :D

.Alyspank said...

Thank you for proving to me that I'm not the only person alive who thought that movie wasn't worth the time spent to make it. I left the room as soon as Hector died the first time, while Orlando Bloom did his typical, awkward intense stare.... just shoot me. I totally get that's how the mythology was written, but ugh. I wish they'd just re-write the summary of that movie to just say "Ugh, my life..."

I don't mind you being an ad campaign for H&M.... I totally recognized that these were H&M pieces from the second I saw your first photo! Believe I've even tried on that skirt before :) Cropped sweater and a skirt for the win again today!

Holy crap you are tiny! When I mail on your stuff this week, I'm going to mail a sandwich along with it! lol.

Hey skinny minny! Love the olive and b&w combo. Think I will rock that color combo today myself! :)

I love this outfit!

Ann. said...

I've also been thinking about a tatoo with some lyrics.. but I don't know which one though.
I loved your outfit (:
You'd be very happy where I live.. all we got is H&M! To be honest it's really annoying because you just know everyone will have the adorable dress you just bought. I'm not saying I don't like H&M, I love it, I just wish we had some variety (:
