Nice Things

Also, this one. If this is an ad for a service that helps you find hotel rooms, why does this guy look so disheveled and tired? I prefer that other girl, with her style and zest for life. 

Apparently this is going to become a blog where I just critique low-budget ads for hotel booking services. 

Maybe I should have posted the ad. 

Secret Escapes

Has anyone else seen that commercial in which a British girl whispers at the camera about last-minute luxury hotel bookings? I really like it, but especially because at the end, when she’s whispering from her luxury hotel bed, some guy is like, “Darling, who are you talking to?” and she sort of hustles the camera away before he comes out of the bathroom. Which, to me, implies that she is sleeping with the owner of the hotel, and that adds a little something to the proceedings. Although I don’t know if that’s really what the ad’s makers intended. 

I’m pretty excited about this new Spoon record. Which isn’t a huge surprise because I guess I’m always kind of excited about new Spoon records. Also, I never noticed before but does this guy look a tiny bit like my husband or am I crazy?

This song came on my shuffle when I was walking around just now and I noticed (finally) how weird the structure is. It’s like, all chorus. Or does it just come off that way because everyone involved puts out a certain “I’m the star, this is the most important part” energy? Anyway, good song.

I know as well as anyone how hard it can be to find a good home for a short story. But this strategy of straight-up pasting it into the comments under one of Beyoncé’s Instagram pics is a little too outside the box.

I’m thinking this would be a good reference pic, for the pose, if we decide to get Nailgun stuffed.

Ha, I will admit that I did not see this coming, with the synchronized dancing and whatnot. I’d believe it of the blonde one but it seems out of character for the other two? Also, some of their moves remind me of that part in the Buffy musical where she is about to spontaneously catch fire.
