What's the best gift you received this year?

d.r.p.d.r.p.d.r.p.d.r.p. (+ y)d.r.p.

Best tangible gift, anyway.

Dad gave me his vintage Leica III rangefinder. It weighs more than my first car. I hope to shoot lots of black & white in the next few weeks.

Also, FTW! <3

Kimya Dawson, Juno and The Moldy Peaches

Anyone Else But You
The Moldy Peaches


Despite latent bias against soundtracks in general (cough), I love this Moldy Peaches track from Juno. It pairs two guitars with boy and girl vocals in probably the most perfect way possible. I got a little misty the third time they played it in the film. Also, any song with lyrics like this, is well, <3:


I will find my niche in your car
With my MP3 DVD rumble-pack guitar
I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else
But you
...
Up up down down left right left right B A start
Just because we use cheats doesn't mean we're not smart
I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else
But you

I won’t spoil the ending, but after you’ve seen it you’ll think this was written for the film. Kimya & co’s music fits this film like Air’s proper for the Virgin Suicides. Find more here and here.

Jay Allen reminded me of this 1996 block, trying to channel Irvine Welsh and Chuck Palahniuk. Iterative, natch.
