Oh. My God. Do you recognize this baby?The right answer is YES. YES OF COURSE YOU DO WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU.
I've been looking all over for answers as to how I could fill this black void in my soul and THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I HAVE SEARCHED FOR. It's by new-ish American brand Letters of Marque and I need it NOW, so I can start my reenactment of "Toxic 2, but better". How did I come upon this FANTASMIC discovery? Thanks to my new favorite website, Knickers, which is just... AMAZING. Go read it. Now. OMG, it has everything a lingerie aficionado could EVER want. Um, bargains? News? The experts to help you find ANY lingerie you see ANYWHERE (such as in this case)? It even has this super awesome quiz that tells you what kind of style lingerie you are. I'm a Flirt (totes accurate and cue R. Kelly)!

It's... it's just awesome. Go.
Go now.

Two Suns artwork REVEALED!!

And of course, it's effing BOMB and I might buy the LP just to have this baby hanging on my wall. WITNESS THE GLORY!

Natasha Khan, you are the queen of my world. If it were possible, I would have your children gladly, and I'm scared to death of the prospect of childbirth. Please start a cult so I can join.

Could I be any more excited?!? REALLY. COULD I. I am listening to a preview I got in my e-mail just a few minutes ago and I am LOVING what I hear.

More Love, Please: Viva K

Four years ago I fell in love with the awe-inspiring Silverlake quartet Viva K, a band united by the discovery of a sitar which may or may not have belonged to the late Brian Jones. I stumble upon their music on shuffle and I forget how unbelievably underrated their music is. They released their first and only album so far, self-titled, in 2005 on a relatively unknown label called Stinky Records. The album was launched to quiet acclaim and has delved in obscurity, appreciated by too few. However, it gave us some seriously amazing songs like "No Better Time", "Dekoder" and "Does It Matter?" (video above) that continue to blow my mind to this day. Singer Ween Callas kicks so much ass and brings to mind classically awesome ladies like Siouxsie Sioux and Justine Frischmann. Please check this band out! I would love to see them come out and truly flourish.

Bump this, buy the CD, and thank me later.

Girls on Film: Cherry Darling (Planet Terror)

It's damn hard to feel sexy when you're walking around with a useless dead thing of a limb. I should know-- I'm bedridden from taking a nasty spill last afternoon! So who else to brighten my mood with some serious asskicking than the fabulous Cherry Darling, whose former paramour replaced her dead leg with a machine gun?
Really, there's nothing I could say about this badass bitch that hasn't already been said. Disillusioned with her job as a go-go dancer, she decides to quit and pursue a career in comedy-- eventually providing one of the movie's great jokes when she loses her leg. "I was gonna be a stand-up comedian!" she says in tears. After all, she couldn't very well be a sit-down comedian, now, could she? This girl has so much spunk, she immediately regains confidence after her hospitalization. She treks outta there with no more than a wooden leg, later to become the weapon of choice for her ex-boyfriend, master gunman El Wray. She even manages to get some hot ex-sex pre-gun leg!
And of course, it was never the gun that made Cherry Darling so irresistible-- chick's already got all the ammo she'll ever need. Proof here:

Cherry, darling, I want to be just like you.

Playlist: Fuck You, February

I hate February already. I'm just mad all the time. After I watched my car get towed yesterday, I begun digging into my angry playlist-- and you can too! Feel the rage!

The Misfits "Attitude"
One of the greatest angry songs EVER. I honestly don't have enough good things to say about The Misfits, considering how all-around great they are. Glenn Danzig is an effing fantastic singer, unlike SO MANY PUNKS, such as the notorious lead singer of...
Public Image, Ltd. "Public Image"
Bad voice or not, no one can deny that the legendary Johnny Rotten does angry flawlessly.
be your own PET "Bog"
I'm sorry-- I'M NOT SORRY!! Damn RIGHT. Teach me, Jemina. Oh, and their self-titled CD is pretty perfect if you don't own it. And you NEED TO. GO BUY.
Midnight Creeps "Menstrual Institution"
A friend of mine introduced me to the Midnight Creeps last year and OMG this song is RIDICULOUS. Don't be surprised if you find yourself singing this at the most inappropriate moments!
Bikini Kill "Star-Bellied Boy"
Authentic angst straight from the goddess of riot grrrl herself. And, um, LOVE the Dr. Seuss reference! Only you would, Kathleen. Only you.
The Libertines "The Saga"
This was my first-ever Libertines song. I was hooked immediately, and a long love began. Pour one out for them!
Veruca Salt "Seether"
I listen to this song CONSTANTLY. It's probably one of my favorite songs ever made and it sums up my current feelings. I never thought that would happen. Uh oh. Angry girls FTW!!
Sleater-Kinney "O2"
The best song on One Beat. Honestly, I can't think of anything wrong with it. Proof the riot grrrl could be taken into the 21st century!

Wanted more songs? Too bad.
(I didn't mean that, I'm sorry.)
