I SO need to see this. I posted about it before but now it's playing at select theaters, of course NONE are in AZ-SHIT! I got shivers watching it again. Lars Von Trier is a genius and Willem DaFoe---HOT
Lars did Dancer in the Dark as well. Bjork was phenomenal in it.. so fucking sad tho. This final scene still makes me tear up
Meet Me Halfway
Word to ya Mutha.
Friday night Mone, Virginia and I took our bikes on the light rail and headed to Tempe to play (I watched) kegball. Then we rode to a few other bars. I have to remember that when I go out with my friend Mone we NEVER get home before 2 am. UGH! That's Virginia in my knit hat taking down Alana. I want the Jesus one now and the Werewolf. I have the Bruce Lee one..so funny buy one here
I think I prob smell like dog farts after my dog nearly gassed me to death this weekend. I had to give her gas pills for dogs-that's how bad it was.
These are all going on Ebay hopefully today. I haven't worn my DIY Balmain Military Jacket so F-it, I'll sell it. I made the mistake of trying my Chloe shoes on and now i'm having second opinions on selling them. I need somebody to come to my house and go thru my stuff and tell me what TO and what NOT to get rid of.
My friend Allison was in town so it was nice to see her. We hit up a few thriftstores on Saturday. The Salvation Army on Mohave has some signed Tommy Roe LP's and a Kenny Rogers LP. They also have a lot of NICE antique furniture. I was fixing the x-mas lights in my kitchen and hammered my thumb in the process. Bloody HELL! OH and speaking of blood-Ruby bit my landlord. She didn't hurt him, just nipped his pinky and made it bleed a little bit. I'm glad he's a super cool guy.
Thanks Mike! You're a RULER! (not the kind you measure stuff with)
Get your Cheap Thrills shirts here
In return you are going to get the toughest package ever.. just be careful when you open it. I hope it's still alive when it arrives. It's in a safe container. Keep it away from your lil ones ok?

"In Native American animal lore, the magpie was also viewed as having intellect. However, more often than not she was faulted for trickery and her intelligence was typically used in deceptive schemes. She cannot be judged too harshly though because her tricks are always played out with a light-hearted, good-natured intention."
Magpie Symbolic Meanings
Magpie symbolic meanings are numerous and varied. This stands to reason because the magpie herself is a varied creature. Her colorful character is a delight to observe with symbolic eyes because she is so unpredictable, high-spirited and expressive.
Among her many common attributes, here are a few magpie symbolic meanings:
When we observe the magpie's behaviors in nature, we can pick out many strong symbolic messages.
The magpie's speech is symbolic of communication and creative expression. When we hear the magpie speak it is a message to us that we might need to listen to what is being spoken to us - listen with more attention. The chatter of the magpie is also a symbolic message that we may need to speak our minds more clearly....speak up, express our opinions, be creative with our spoken words.
The magpie's obsession with shiny things is symbolic of our tendency to chase after false ideas or perceptions. When the magpie comes into our lives it is often a reminder that we may have to re-evaluate our priorities. Are we chasing after unsuitable desires? Are we serving a false ideal? Are we putting materialism ahead of matters of the soul?
The magpie builds its home in the thickest "V" of trees. Forks or V's in nature are symbolic of gateways or paths into the spirit realm. In this fashion, the magpie asks us about our level of spiritual perception. Specifically, the magpie asks to keep an open mind in matters of the spirit. She also asks us where our spiritual foundation is and encourages us to open the gateways of higher (spiritual) vision.
Her plumage is also symbolic. With striking colouration, the magpie is symbolic of flamboyance, expression, and glamour. When we see her, we do a double-take because her appearance commands our attention. This is a message for us to not hide ourselves away from the world. The magpie beckons us to reveal our brilliance (physical and otherwise) to the world. We are each composed of incredible beauty and grace - the magpie is a reminder that we must express these attributes outwardly in a glamorous display just as she does.
And just when we get to know the symbolic meaning of the magpie, she eludes us and leaves us guessing what she's all about. In nature she has been known to be shy and reclusive - yet in cities she is noted to be extremely sociable with humans. Typically, she is a scavenger...but she has also been witnessed taking down small birds and rodents - acting as a bird of prey (which is not her classification).
These and other oddities in her behavior are symbolic of illusion and perception. The magpie's message her is that not all things are what they appear to be, and we should not set our judgements in stone. Further, this aspect of the magpie is a message that we do not have to be bound to perceptions. In other words, we may want to consider departing from our habitual behaviors and avoid being type-caste into a specific role.
In ancient European cultures the magpie is said to predict omens, and there is a type of divination based on the magpie according to an old riddle. I've forgotten how the rhyme goes, but gist of it is according to how many magpies are seen the following will be one's fate:
* One magpie indicates danger
* Two equals joy in union
* Three means good journey
* Four magpies means new beginning
* Five equals company coming
* Six indicates an ending
* Seven magpies is a good omen, carry on with your plans
* Eight magpies suggest a wait period, do not continue with your plans
* Nine magpies speak of love will coming to call on you, or a return of love to your life
Magpie symbolic meanings take on a brighter note in the East, where the Chinese regard the magpie as a good luck symbol, joy, marital bliss, sexual happiness, and long lasting fortune.
When the Chinese hear the cry of a magpie it is said to be an announcement of the arrival of friends and family (click here for other symbolic meanings of Chinese animals).
The ancient Roman's viewed the magpie as a creature of high intellect and reasoning powers. She is also an attribute of Bacchus, the God of wine.
In Native American animal lore, the magpie was also viewed as having intellect. However, more often than not she was faulted for trickery and her intelligence was typically used in deceptive schemes. She cannot be judged too harshly thought because her tricks are always played out with a light-hearted, good-natured intention.
As you can see, the magpie symbolic meanings are as diverse and colorful as the magpie herself. Her messages are many, and she gives them to us with a free and happy heart."
Mine says i'm a Falcon
"Falcon: Mar 21 – Apr 19
A natural born leader, the Falcon can always be looked upon for clear judgment in sticky situations. Furthermore, the characteristics for this Native American animal symbol never wastes time, rather he/she strikes while the iron is hot, and takes action in what must be done. Ever persistent, and always taking the initiative, the Falcon is a gem of a personality to have for projects or team sports. The Falcon can be a little on the conceited side – but he/she is usually right in his/her opinions – so a little arrogance is understood. In a supportive environmental the Falcon "soars" in his/her ability to maintain passion and fire in relationships, and always remaining compassionate. Left to his/her own devices, the Falcon can be vain, rude, intolerant, impatient, and over-sensitive"
Rob-it says you're a Deer
"Deer: May 21 – Jun 20
This Native American animal symbol is the muse of the zodiac. The Deer is inspiring lively and quick-witted. With a tailor-made humor, the Deer has a tendency to get a laugh out of anyone. Excellent ability for vocalizing, the Deer is a consummate conversationalist. This combined with his/her natural intelligence make the Deer a must-have guest at dinner parties. Always aware of his/her surroundings, and even more aware of his/her appearance, the Deer can be a bit self-involved. However, the Deer's narcissism is overlooked because of his/her congeniality and affability. In a supportive environment the Deer's natural liveliness and sparkly personality radiate even more. He/she is an inspiring force in any nurturing relationship. Left to his/her own devices the Deer can be selfish, moody, impatient, lazy, and two-faced."
