Sorry Buzzfeed. Leo is cute but he’s NOT Seth Green *swoon*

Not only did I have a couple of these CDs, but I kept them and ripped them when I first got an iPod, and now have a whole bunch of these still in my iTunes!
I am nearly four years older than the Mountain. I AM NEARLY FOUR YEARS OLDER THAN THE MOUNTAIN. I can’t.
Really REALLY not trying to sound either old or judgmental here, but I’m confused on the definition of “scene”. Is it raver? Candy goth? Younger punk? Is there a music genre involved? I mean, I shopped at Hot Topic as a teen for Tripp and Lip Service and everything too, but it wasn’t very colorful back then. I just couldn’t figure out what defines “scene” in this context other than brightly colored hair (which can apply to a lot of subcultures).
If “one hit wonder” is defined by reaching a certain chart level, well, then yes these songs for the most part are. But The Calling had a better single called “Adrienne”, and Nine Days had a better single called “If I Am”, both of which charted. I’ll agree on Willa Ford though…wasn’t she only famous for dating Nick Carter? (if you can’t tell, I was 15 in 2000).
Becklo, are you at the Crumbs up by 86th? I have seen some crazy people (and their kids) in there! Working in retail myself, this is a given anyway, but I promise to continue to always be on my best behavior when I stop in!
Ironically following Wicca. IRONICALLY FOLLOWING WICCA. I became a Wiccan at 13, having been an agnostic from a Jewish family. That wasn’t “ironic”, that was sincere, and I’m 28 today and a staunch Wiccan. So, um, fuck you, teenagers? Maybe I’ll go “ironically” practice some Christianity now…cause, irony! *explodes*
94. Most of the no’s were either work-related (I’m heterosexual and most of my jobs have been in a female-dominated workplace, so wouldn’t apply) or drug/alcohol-related (don’t do either).
I got LES, I live in Inwood. People who live in Manhattan don’t seem to know where Inwood is. Whatever, I’m 1 block from the 1, 4 from the A, and have a beautiful park at my disposal. Only thing that sucks is no diner.
Because someone has to say it: I doubt anyone who read this post is going to take these spells seriously anyway, but just in case, please be aware that those of us who employ spellcraft into various forms of paganism and Wicca and are NOT teenagers on a silly witchcraft kick DO NOT PERFORM LOVE SPELLS OR ANY SPELL THAT WOULD AFFECT THE FREE WILL OF ANOTHER PERSON. It is our beliefs to even attempt to control another person’s free will. The closest thing would be some kind of attraction spell cast on ourselves to increase our own sense of attractiveness or sexuality, therefore causing us to reflect it on the world around us, like a self-confidence boost. Thanks.
Been making jokes about feeling old since I was 25 (I’m 28 now), but only when EVERY SINGLE JOINT IN MY BODY CRACKS IN THE MORNING. However, that’s because I’m a stage combatant and it’s entirely my fault.
I got this for the holidays, I can’t wait to read it!
Re-reading Stephen King’s “The Stand” (oh gods I cannot say enough things about that book, especially if you like to get deep into the Dark Tower grand mythology). After that, my boyfriend got me an absolutely beautiful hardcover edition of Tolkien’s “The Unfinished Tales” for Yule, complete with gold leaf and an embossed helmet of Rohan on the front.
With The Raccoons, ignore the opening theme…it’s ALL about the closing theme, “Run With Us”. Seriously, it’s a show about forest creatures and the closing theme song is EPIC.
As a GoT cosplayer with a bestie in the NYC burlesque scene…FLY ME THERE NOW.
I work front desk at a salon with mostly Indian and Nepali specialists, and luckily I’ve never heard a customer ask any of these.
Try telling people you’re a Wiccan and you observe Yule. You get ALL sorts of WTF looks. Especially when you try to explain that a lot of Christmas symbolism that isn’t directly connected to the religious part of the holiday (trees, wreaths, etc.) is actually Pagan in orgin. That’s FUN. I just say “Happy holidays”, give holiday gifts, and go on my merry witchy way.
Our cabbit (rabbit who acts like a cat) is such a fuzzy love, and I get so excited when she sticks her little tongue out and licks my hand to groom me!
I live a 5-minute walk from the Cloisters, and I love it. There’s a Ren Faire there every year, I’ve been to a wedding there, awesome modern sculptures mixed in with the very very old art, and my friends and I have used the jousting field off-season to practice stage combat. Great place! Just hope you don’t mind the hill or 150 steps to the top!
Oh, and you forgot the Creepy Bard! And he takes requests, if you know your Ren Faire/Gaelic/folk music!
Jimmy is one of the sweetest guys on the planet. He is ALWAYS happy to see you, even if he totally has no idea who you are. Unless you steal…look it up, there’s video of him scaring the crap out of a lowlife thief at Trash, and it’s amazing.
I like freaking people out by showing them my legs compared to my arms. They go, “Wow, you’re so pale!” looking at my normally exposed skin and then I roll up my pants legs. It’s like they’re experiencing seeing a whole new shade for the first time.
Really not being hipster-y here, I’m honestly confused by all of these. Forget about sound-alikes, most of these songs were either recorded at a completely different time than the people they’re wrongly attributed to, or they’re way famous enough to not be mistaken for a different band. In short…HUH?
Made by Gilding Primal Instinct, who makes absolutely amazing jewelry! We’ve sold her stuff in the store for years and it’s beautiful.
First thing is my headshot, from a production of Romeo and Juliet. Third is also me, a shot taken outside the NYC Devil’s Carnival premiere. Now, add in my name and New York Jedi, well…
7 is from the No Pants Subway ride, 6 is wearing a pair of Lip Service cyber tights over a pair of green tights, and 5 is obviously posed/photoshoot.
Donuts, croissants, pretzels…I don’t like any of these thing. I have a mild/moderate form of Celiac’s that I was diagnosed with at 2 years old. I have a pretty high tolerance so I basically can eat a normal amount of wheat products as an adult and not feel sick, but as a child, I was restricted to corn and rice flour until they were sure of my tolerance, and so I never developed a taste for very dough-y things, and now I think they’re pretty gross. People think that’s very weird. I like cupcakes and pies, though.
Worked for Lush for nearly 4 years. Will NEVER buy my products anywhere else. 48% solid (may have gone up since I left) which means 48% COMPLETELY preservative-free, safe synthetics for the rest. And by the way, if you have any concerns about any of the synthetics, ask an employee…we were very well-educated on WHY we use the synthetics we do, and we’ll help…and if you’re still concerned, they’ll be happy to point you in the direction of solid products. Also, larger sizes are always better value…it takes me nearly a year to go through my moisturizers and lotions. Lush love for life!
You missed my friend Tony Ray…he’s a black man, and he does a genderbent Pink Ranger, and it’s frakking AWESOME.
1, 2, 3, 8, 10, 12, 13, and 17 are all on my ipod on fairly regular rotation.
Halloween in college: going to watch the parade. Halloween after college: being IN the parade and getting to do awesome lightsaber fights up 6th Avenue all night. After college wins.
Everything. EVERYTHING. I’ve had 5 years of retail, and now I’m working in a customer service job with a retail aspect, and every single one of these has happened at some point.
I wear wigs for pretty much all my cosplays…it’s just easier than styling my own hair, really.
I would wear any of these any day. Easy, spooky style.
My boyfriend and I have thrown around the idea of maybe having a horror-themed wedding one day…so many ideas just from this one post!
Cards Against Humanity is the great unifier. My group of friends even got my mother playing, with gusto, at our recent trip away. And…she learned what bukkakae was. Proud daughter moment.
Always random when you see one of your friends on Buzzfeed (the Miguel/Tulio).
People often forget that body types are made of more than just height/weight combos. My best friend is 5’8” and 115lbs, she eats like a horse. I’m 5’0” and 105lbs, I used to weight 95lbs and then I started doing stage combat and put on 10lbs of muscle weight. My college roommate was 5’4” and maybe 140 lbs but she worked out every day and could’ve easily kicked my ass in a footrace.
ALL THE BODILY FLUIDS. Also, had a guy masturbating on the Broadway-Lafayette street platform tonight, like as in about 3 hours before I saw this post. Urgh.
My mom produced that Herbal Essences ad!
