JANE RUSSELL IS MY SPIRIT ANIMAL


This blog post is coming to you from beyond the grave. I kid, I kid, but seriously, I have been SO SICK for the past few weeks. It's just been one thing after another: a cold, tonsilitis, a cough, pink eye, UGH. I never get sick so I guess my body is just getting like five years' worth of disease out of the way in one fell swoop.

Anyhow, I've been watching a lot of classic movies on Netflix. Yesterday I watched Gentlemen Prefer Blondes starring Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell. The movie is probably most famous for Monroe's musical number "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend." Which is unfortunate, because Jane Russell has another number in the movie called "Ain't There Anyone Here for Love?" and it's the bomb.com. Monroe and Russell play best friends in a showgirl act who are both single and ready to mingle. While Monroe is looking for a man with money, Russell just wants a hunk regardless of his bank account balance. While on a cruise ship going from New York to Europe, Russell goes to the gym to watch the American Olympic team work out.


A song and dance commences.


I know, right?


Russell sings about never working out while scantily clad men perform feats of strength. I especially enjoyed the line "I'm apathetic and nonathletic." I think I'll add that to my Tinder profile.



Plus those earrings are dope.


I feel like you don't often see men so heavily objectified in old movies. 


Butts...



Drenched, having a beverage, surrounded by adoring nearly naked men...just living the dream.

You can watch the whole song here, you won't regret it! It's adorable.

GREEN HAIR DON'T CARE


Lately I'm really loving green hair. Maybe it's because I have red hair, and green is on the opposite side of the color wheel. If I had an evil twin, she would totally have green hair. Sadly, I'll probably never have green hair because a) I have a job in an office and b) I don't think my hair could take the bleach. But a girl can dream, right?









What do you think? Would you rock the green?

WHAT I DID IN OCTOBER

 

My, how time flies! I can't believe that it's already November. We are in "holiday" season at work so I have been so, so, so busy. Like, working until 10 pm busy. It doesn't leave a lot of time for blogging, but I got an extra hour this weekend thanks to the time change, so here's your October recap post!

I just need to clarify that the picture above was for my Marty McFly costume. I didn't just take that picture to say "time flies!"


I saw this crazy kid at White House Fruit Farm. I love how he's holding up at gourd like, "Finally, this is the squash I have been searching for! Mwhahahahaha!"


I have been spending more time than I'd like on the Ohio State campus this football season. But where else can you go to pay $4 for a Natty and be jostled by strangers dressed in red?



Sunday Funday at Seventh Son. I went to their Harvest Festival and it was just like the perfect day. They had an amazing food truck, delicious brews on tap, and a PETTING ZOO. I wish I knew what the food truck was, because I could definitely eat that sandwich again.


Schwartz Castle on a spooky haunted tour of German Village. Apparently the castle was built by this crazy recluse guy who dug 5 basements underneath and sunbathed naked on the roof.


Gibby was Don Draper for Halloween.


Brown Bag Deli lunch in the park for one :(




Dressed up as Poison Ivy and went to Haunted Fest at the convention center...where I think I may have been the oldest person.

How was your October? What did you do for Halloween?

10 TRACKS FOR YOUR HALLOWEEN PARTY PLAYLIST


If you're having a spooky scary Halloween party, you need a sick mix for your ghoulish guests to jam out to. Lucky for you, I have compiled a list to get you started on the ultimate Halloween party playlist. Let's get this costume party started!

First we'll start with the classics...


1) Michael Jackson - "Thriller"


2) Ray Parker, Jr. - "Ghostbusters" - SICK BASS LINE


3) Bobby "Boris" Pickett - "The Monster Mash"

Let's just get these out of the way. If you hadn't already thought to start your mix with these, then maybe you should reconsider having a Halloween party at all. You're not a true fan. Maybe we can host Friendsgiving at your house this year.


4) Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks - "Little Fang"

Avey Tare of Animal Collective created this solo project to explore a vintage Halloween/spooky dance party sound. I have been waiting all year long to dance to this track at a costume party.


5) Missy Elliott - "Get Ur Freak On"

First of all, I am very disappointed that this song wasn't used in any promos for American Horror Story: Freakshow. This song strikes a great balance between being scary and making you want to put your thing down, flip it, and reverse it. 


6) Harry Belafonte - "Jump In the Line"

In my mind, this song is 100% associated with the masterpiece Beetlejuice. Also, 50's music is absolutely the scariest music of all. Can we just agree on that?



7) The Black Keys - "Strange Times"

I have a pregame ritual that involves me dancing around to this song in my underwear, drinking wine, and chanting "LET'S GET WEIRD!" I highly recommend it.


8) Rockwell ft. Michael Jackson - "Somebody's Watching Me"

This song is so much spookier in 2014 with the NSA and cell phones and whatever it is I'm supposed to be worried about with my privacy.


9) Kanye West & Friends - "Monster"

First things first, Kanye West is basically my favorite human/demi-god, and I cannot make a playlist without him. Besides, I get chills every time I hear Nicki Minaj's verse. Damn girl!


10) MGMT - "Brian Eno"

This song just sounds like a Scooby Doo episode where they're like getting chased by a ghost or something...then all of a sudden they're chasing the ghost...then they all realize they're chasing the ghost and turn around and the ghost chases them! Turns out it was just mean Mr. Jenkins.


BONUS TRACK: Tracy Jordan - "Werewolf Bar Mitzvah"

How can you beat these sick lyrics: "Werewolf bar mitzvah spooky scary/Boys becoming men, men becoming wolves"? Hahahaha BRB dying.

What do you have on your Halloween party playlist? Do you even HAVE a Halloween party playlist? Get it together, people.

ALEXANDER WANG X H&M


Alexander Wang has previewed his design collaboration with H&M, and I have mixed feelings about it. First of all, Alexander Wang is amazing. This is in no way a diss on his designs. I 100% love this line. HOWEVER, H&M is a mass-market retailer. They sell in places (for example, Ohio) where not everyone is familiar with Alexander Wang. Therefore, it would be pretty strange walking around with a giant "WANG" on your shirt. You're bound to get some unpleasant comments. I'm sure that they've already thought of the plebes at H&M and allocated correctly...but I'm just sayin'. 









If you're into it, the collection is available to purchase on November 6.

PS When I was making this post I accidentally searched for "Alexander Wag" which would be such a great name for a dog, don't you think?

SEINFELD BUT WITH SKELETONS



Sure, Seinfeld is pretty much the best show ever...but what if it were made with skeletons? And set in hell?

Luckily there is an answer to these spooky questions. Friends: please meet Jerry Seinfeld's Skeleton, a Tumblr that seeks to accurately recreate memorable moments from Seinfeld using bloody skeletons. It is fantastic.


The creator uses Garry's Mod to match the skeletons to screenshots of the 90's sitcom. What's the point, you ask? There is no point, duh.

And of course, the blog sells shirts of its creations.

What do you think? Is this your sense of humor or are you a little creeped out by all these bloody skeletons?
