Lykke Li has a new music video. The song is called “Get Some.” Here are some of the lyrics: “I’m a prostitute/you gon get some.” There’s also talk of pulling pants down and shotgun blasts and those sorts of things.

If you’re looking for something to get yourself going on this Monday, this funky ditty may do the trick. Thanks, Lykke. Get your get down on, girl. Keep reading »

Apparently, there are just two hold-ups.

First I got the cutes, then I got the sadz. This dog in glasses, part of a brilliant photo collection aptly titled Dogs In Glasses, looks exactly like my childhood dog Mandy.
