NOGOODFORME.COM's TUMBLR. For like 7+ years we, Kat Asharya and Liz Barker, kept track of what we were listening, reading, watching, wearing and wanting at our blog. Now we do it at Tumblr. But you should still visit us at NOGOODFORME.COM anyway, 'cause big things are going down there, too. Follow us on FACEBOOK, and we are both on TWITTER at @katasharya and @lizzfizz, respectively.

this is everything I wanted Nicki Minaj to be. (though i still heart Nicki, truly.)

It warrants a screencap cuz I have so much “Letters to Cleo energy” in my life right now and I feel really good about that. Currently listening to "Awake" for the first time in like 16 years.

Amy Winehouse’s death day was really emotionally loaded for me. The  night before I’d had this weird fight and I woke up mad, in a  cool/energizing self-righteous sort of way, then looked at the Internet  and learned that Amy Winehouse was dead. I don’t think I cried or  anything; I just put on lots of eye makeup and dramatic hair and a “wifebeater” and  cutoffs and glittery shoes and walked down to 7-Eleven for a soda (Diet  Coke, topped off with a shot of regular Coca-Cola). I kept walking and  walking down Sunset Boulevard and it was hot and I got a sunburn on my left shoulder and ended  up at some crazy secondhand store where they made me try my clothes on  in the filthy bathroom. I bought a sparkly silver sleeveless minidress and wore it out that night, to my friends’ birthday party  on the patio of a beautiful hotel downtown. I liked some boy a little  bit and I drank greyhounds and we sat by the hot tub and put our feet in  the water and I was wearing tights but I didn’t take them off. Then we  got kicked out of the hot tub area and one of the birthday dudes jumped in the pool with all his clothes on and everyone got kicked out of the hotel altogether.  My dress was all wet from sitting by the hot tub and in the cab I put  his baseball cap on and I bet it looked good, with the shiny dress and  everything.
Anyway, when I went out walking that morning I hit shuffle on my iPod and the first song that came up was “Ruby Tuesday” and I made it about Amy Winehouse, which really works. All in all, this 45 does a nice job of encapsulating my experience of July 23 2011.

Something I’ve been worrying about lately is “whether or not Evan Dando has a lot of joy in his life these days.” Cuz he was so joyful here, but then now there’s this.
PS right now I’m really taken with the lyric “This world is topsy-turvy, and it is mine to eat” (from "Alison’s Starting to Happen")

and also:

Interviewer: What’s the grungiest thing you’ve done all week?
Evan: (thinks for several hours) The grungiest thing I did all week was pull the tablecloth out from under four place settings and they all stayed there.

I never listen to “Pirate Prude.” I probably listened to it twice in like 1997 and then forgot about it cuz it bored me. But today Fluxblog posted this great little paragraph about “XXX” and I listened again and guess what I love it! I’m so happy I remembered Fluxblog exists; he’s always so thoughtful.
