here’s a video of me singing

4 Mar

A couple weeks ago, I got to sing with one of my favorite bands, Metal Feathers, at Port City Music Hall. It was so much fun and I’m really proud of myself for not throwing up or forgetting all the words or falling off the stage.

 

 

While I’m proud of my singing in this video (taken by Mike Cunnane of Brass Cankles and being my boyfriend), I also like it because I think I look wicked cute. I don’t have a double chin or crossed eyes and I love my outfit. Let’s talk about my outfit!

The two best parts of my outfit were birthday presents: my sweet Doc Martens from my supercool sister Rachel, and my slutty slutty dress from my mom. At first, my mom refused to believe that this dress was not underwear, but after much Clueless quoting from my friend Kate, she came around. I’m also wearing a stretchy gold vintage belt from Material Objects, two pair of tights, and my own jewelry.

Metal Feathers is playing tonight at the Apohadion with Brenda, Corpse Pose, and the Milkmen’s Union. You can listen to their new album here, and surprisingly, the perpetually out-of-touch and out-of-town Sam Pfiefle wrote a very nice review. I especially like the description of the Keith Richards jewelry box.

stuff and junk: January 18, 2011

  • Maybe I’m just sentimental because I know someone who wears Opium, but I love the writing on this perfume blog: “Opium was so much more than a fragrance. It became an identity. Just as Chanel No. 5 showed its wearer as someone elegant and timeless (or at least trying to be elegant and timeless), the woman who wore Opium signaled that her life was rife with exoticism and secrets, even if she lived in a split level in the suburbs”.
  • I have some cool new stuff in my Etsy shop, and you should buy it all. Use coupon code “SWEETDISORDER” and get 20% off just for reading my blog! Holy crap! What a deal!

  • Allie of Broke207 introduced me to the champagne cocktail. I’m all about anything with a sugarcube in it.
  • Go listen to this album. My boyfriend and dear friends made it, and I took the picture on the front (other cool albums).
  • Here’s a good picture to bring to your hairdresser:

  • Those awesome Sally Hansen nail polish strips are at CVS on Congress Street now, so buy them before I do.
  • I’m going to make a fashion-themed mixtape for you guys. Any requests? Don’t worry, I could never forget “Raspberry Beret.” Also, is there a good website to make an internet mixtape? Do I sound eighty years old when I ask that? Let me know.
