the daily mail: “free queen mother rose for every reader”.
lenny kravitz: someone please explain how this man has any kind of a career.
pollen: my eyes! etc

i’m also going to see appleseed cast and cursive tomorrow, which should prove to be an education if nothing else. i’ve been reliably informed that this is a rare opportunity to see some ’emo’ bands in an ‘intimate’ venue. with ‘the kids’. i’ll be sure to let you know how it goes.
