Tip of your Tongue

"dont waste your breath on formality." From Tip of Your Tongue by Porcelain Raft.

don't waste your breath or your time. sometimes i have such an aversion to pain that i dont' let myself do fun stuff like fall in love or get tattoos and shit. or say what's on the tip of my tongue. this is my favorite song today. <3

just went dancin'

"we're not happy till we're running away. clouds in your eyes..."
"one of a kind, i need to keep you here, i need to picture you still, i need to clear the fog"
"i need to go somewhere, i need somewhere to come down"<-----all Wild Nothing snippets of Chinatown

and then

"every day i wake up and i take my medication, just to spend the rest of the day waiting for it to wear off...i'm waiting for a time, when i can be without these things that make me feel this way all..the..time.." <---all from Spiritualized "Medication"

for some reason i'm thinking of these two vastly different songs and conceptualizing them in the same way. whatever, that's what happens when you drunk post, yeah?? yeah. okay!

i went to the indie dance nite tonite. (sidenote, i WISH i could DJ on this nite, just for like an hour, please!!! and yes i'd play neutral milk hotel and yes i'd dance with you during chosen song) it was good (props given most definitely for "Skin of My Yellow Country teeth" by CYHSY however, i miss the time i danced to Best Coast, Wild Nothing, The Drums, and the song that makes my heart smile "Home" by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes. good gawd, i'd give anything to dance with K-Spot to that song again. i know its cool to be cool, you wanna disco, wanna see me disco but c'mon, we all still love that song. DAMNIT!!!!!!!!!!we can gallop like dorses to it and coyly pretend we're jade and alexander..not having a care in the world except the person we are dancing with. or thinking about, fictional or factual. fantasy or reality. it means the world. in other news dear Karaoke Underground: PLEASE add "Home" to your list. must sing it loud! ok i'm done fer the night. and wondering what that MFing song krissie shazamed and couldn't read. CEO? any thoughts? help the girls out <3

10 twinkletunes

sooo.... twinkletoes was a name my dad used to call me when he held both my lil girl feet with one hand and balanced me in the air. there's a special place in my heart for that name. its also my lastfm user name. so...after taking an inspirational nite at the one and only Shang ri la with my homegirl Krissie AKA blogger K-Spot, i've decided to keep track of my musical musings on this here blogger site..(not to be confused with the other blog site i use, which is pretty much a documentation of a tour i just went on and decided not to finish. just say no to blogspot!, haha, J/K it was fun while it lasted, anyways, blahblahblah) . This the new blog, you prolly wont read it or wont care, it it wont mean to you what my twinkletoes means to me.. BUT music is all about sharing really, right?!? like friendship, feelings, ideas, and childhood memories.. effort to keep track of stuff i need to research more often and bands i need to drag my ass out to see on a rainy tuesday nite when i don't want to leave the house.. here are my songs of the moment:

1) "I'm In Your Church at Nite" - Active Child
2) "Chinatown" - Wild Nothing (i can't say enough about this band, they could rule this whole list! THankyou K-Spot!!)
3) "You can Kiss Me First" - College (this is the closest thing to dance music i like dancing to)
4) "Summers with the Ephemeral Wasp"- Kiss Kiss Fantastic (omg, can you say Slowdive?!)
5) "Fruit"- Rafter (remixed by Baths) lyric of song that's kinda sweet and simple and cute...hey it doesn't have to be poetry to get your point across and i'm a girl anyways..." girl i know that you'd love me if you would share your fruit with me."
6) "Our Scenery" - Gauntlet Hair <--must see this band live
7) "Lovesick Teenagers" -Bear in Heaven (best sxsw experience of 2010)
8) "King of the Beach" - Wavves *super summer album, like seriously!!!!! "Your never gonna stop me, you're never gonna stop me, you're never gonna stop, KING OF THE BEACH!" so simply inspirational..road trip? who wit me?
9) "Lust for Life"- Girls yes, IT IS SUMMER, and this one STILL is on the bestlist. makes me wanna roll around on my skates and eat an ice cream cone. how cliche is that?!? but fuck it, its true and Hunx is in the video, woo wee!
10) "Gay Angels" - Perfume Genius this is so fucking stunning i wont belittle its beauty trying to describe it. matador has their shit together. DUH.

so i'll stop at 10 but of course i could go on forever, i have some fucking sewing to do. and the only thing that's keeping me going are these songs and pointless distractions like blogging. haha ;)
