My Computer is Broken...

Sorry but I will not be posting that often for a while because my computer is on the fritz. For some reason it refuses to start and do what I want :(. Hopefully I'll be able to do a few posts on my sister's computer...but for now you will all have to wait!


...I miss blogging :(

Cult Films- The House on Haunted Hill

This movie is on the verge of being a cult film I think...it's had I think 3 remakes....but I was really compelled to do a 'cult films' post on this movie since Vincent Price is in it. Price has a pretty devoted cult following (now including me!) for his performances in the horror films during the latter part of his career. He was a theatrical actor who brought an air of seriousness to macabre and horror films that was really unique and one of a kind. You kind of just have to watch a film with him in it....preferably Witchfinder General.

I thought this movie was good though in a 'it's so bad you can see the wires' kind of way. You'll have to keep in mind that I hate horror films since I get scared so easily...I tend to prefer older movies since it's not people being tortured the whole time. The movie is basically about ?6 or 7? who lock themselves in a haunted house for the night at the bidding of an eccentric millionaire (played by Price) to see who can stay there the whole night. I didn't expect the ending at all so that was good lol. It was also fairly short....overall I would give it about 4 1\2 stars. I quite liked it :) Here's the trailer for the movie:



Also- I searched Vincent Price on youtube and this was one of the things that came up :/ Apparently Price had his own cooking show at one point, someone took sound bites from it, and turned it into a little song, which someone then played over them mouthing the words to the song. I guess that shows you how much people are obsessed with this guy lol!


This also happens to be made by that paperlilies person I told you guys about before....I did not do this on purpose lol, I didn't know this existed!

P.S. Sorry if I don't comment on your blogs in response to you commenting here....I've been really busy recently and please don't think I don't appreciate your comments b\c I really do! I try to get back to everyone!

Captain Beefheart

I have recently discovered music legend Captain Beefheart and all I can say is, "How have I not heard of this person before!!!!!". He has influenced acts from Blondie to The White Stripes and he isn't really known by a lot of people for some reason. All of his music sounds really different....but most of it is experimental in some way. He was a child prodigy and was offered a scholarship to study sculpture in Italy when he was 13....but for some reason his parents forced him to go to the Mohave Desert instead. He's a poet, sculptor, musician, and painter- he also has an incredible vocal range from REALLY low to REALLY high. Apparently he can break glass O.O. Here are some of my favorite songs I could find on youtube! Since all of his music sounds so different, if you don't like one song you may like another...so give it a chance! I personally like them all though- enjoy!

Style Icons and Creepy People

For some odd reason, Yoko Ono doesn't get any credit in terms of style. Her style of artwork is reflected in her clothing perfectly which I really like. She makes simplistic artwork often with the colors black and white and also wears clothes that are mostly black and white. Also, the cut and patterns (if any) on the clothes that she wears are really simple. Ono looks fantastic for her age as well! She's in her 70's and she can still rock a mini-skirt. She is quoted as saying on ImaginePeace.com that:

"Well, the thing is I decided that I don’t want to look bad. I didn’t want to look bad with age, so people would say “Poor darling, she’s looking like a bag lady.” I didn’t want that. I wanted to be able to keep my chin up and look good for myself and other people who want to give up because they’re high in number. I wanted to say, “No, do not give up."

Sunglasses and hats seem to be her thing as well. I think that hats are such an underrated accessory nowadays. Whenever I watch old movies I wish that people still wore hats\headbands\scarfs as much as they did back then. I also just wanted to point out that she did NOT break up The Beatles- there were a lot of factors as to why they broke up (I can already see the comments I'm gonna get on this post *sigh*. Anyway, here are some of my favorite pictures of Yoko's style:













This is definitely my favorite picture of them...it makes me happy :)




I also wanted to tell you guys about my new favorite blog: Craz-E-Mails! It's by two of my favorite vloggers on youtube: Mememolly and Paperlilies! They're pretty much celebrities on the Internet, so they wind up getting a lot of hate\weird mail from random people. Instead of deleting all of it they decided to set up a blog to keep track of all of them! It's the only blog I read that is funny, sad, disturbing, and infuriating all at the same time. It's great! Even if you don't watch their videos- you would still be able to laugh at how stupid people are lol. Here is one of their newest posts:

"hallo
you say you want 50 babies, i have ten and can get many morevery cheap, msg me"

Yeah...that's completely horrifying isn't it?

One of my personal favorites is this one:

"So im 15 can we have sex?i have a boner right now..really im not kidding you might think im lying right now but i get horny from everything"

Wow. Just wow.

It's pretty entertaining (and frightening) so you should check it out. See you guys later!!

Old School Threads

I would totally buy these things from this site but they either won't fit me\I'd never actually wear them\ or they simply cost way too much! I believe that vintage should never cost more than 20-25 dollars- and that's only if they're really good finds! Some of the things there are about $20 but unfortunately none of it was my size :( Granted some of the stuff on the site is from the Victorian Era (like the cape, lace-up boots, and bolero) and is pretty authentic; but still paying $1000 for a pair of shoes is ridiculous. Anyway, here are some of my favorite items from the site.







Also, could someone PLEASE design this jacket for women and make it cost less than $1000?? PLEASE I'M BEGGING YOU!!!!!!




On a side note: Earlier today I read the phrase "your toolbox called...you're missing again" and I giggled about it for a full minute. I'm a tool apparently.

A change for now....

I have decided to change the name of my blog "Nonsense Ramblings" to "Fashion and Music Galore". Still a pretty lame name for a blog but I'll leave it as that until I make up my mind as to what I want the title to be. Thank you to everyone who reads my blog! I know I haven't been the most dedicated blogger recently but I hope to change that! I've been busy at school\out with friends non-stop for the past week or so and that explains the lack of quality content. Luv ya guys!

The Talking Heads=Hella Awesome

Personally, I like the studio version better....but this video is awesome for three reasons

1)How freaking weird they are
2)The KICKASS bass solo at the end. She's fantastic
3)The drummer is cute and I like watching the lead singer shake his hips around 0:40.



I love The Talking Heads!!

My Dad saw them when he was younger and he was right up against the stage! He said it was one of the best concerts he'd ever been to! What a jerk, right?!? How dare he be able to see them live, let alone right up against the stage!
