OH HAI! I has a new room and stuff. Well actually I DON’T have stuff. Most of that is getting moved in tomorrow. But I do have a room and that’s a start. I also have a stable internet connection up in this piece so DOUBLE BONUS. Let’s internet shall we? Oh wait, also, Broken Bells put out their new video with Christina Hendricks in it but you can only watch it if you can trick England’s internet into thinking that’s where you are so boo to that and I’ll include the video when I can actually watch it.

What’s with all the projects lately re-imagining LA as a livable town and why are they all so deeply unsettling? Okay in this case the musical choice helps, but still.

*New York* *Deeply Unsettling*

I want to go to there. But I can’t because it’s in Brooklyn.
