Quote of the Week

Posted on Updated on

“You listen to me. While I will admit to a certain cynicism, the fact is that I am a naysayer and hatchet-man in the fight against violence. I pride myself in taking a punch and I’ll gladly take another because I choose to live my life in the company of Gandhi and King. My concerns are global. I reject absolutely: revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method… is love. I love you Sheriff Truman.”

I am not-so-patiently waiting for the temperature to drop. While it is cool in the morning, it doesn’t feel quite cool enough to through on my beloved Twin Peaks this time of year. Maybe by putting this quote out into the world, I can manifest some weather suitable for putting on my flannel, pulling the fish out of the percolator and wishing I lived in a cabin near Snoqualmie Falls.

 

Swayztember Dancing

Happy Swayztember!

I will be celebrating by watching some of my favorites, and seeing if I have overlooked any of The Great Swayze’s film library.

I fully love this. Not only is this gif great, but it goes with so many great songs. I have watched it while listening to:

I’m a Slave 4 U

Take a Chance on Me

Danger Zone

Pretty Excited About New Albums Day

Posted on Updated on

I got an email from Karen O.

I mean, it wasn’t personally addressed or anything. But still. She wanted to tell me to pre-order her new album and I blinked (blunk?) hard. New Karen O? Yes please with a side of right now!

Not 20 minutes later, I found out Dan the Automator had a new album with M.E. Winstead (together called Got a Girl) just released and my music gaskets just about blew right there.

So, needless to say, I am as happy as 2006 Jess with my YYYs frontwoman and 1/3 of Lovage putting creative and simply brilliant new music into the world to listen to this autumn. So stoked to ride around the neighborhood, blasting I Love You But I Must Drive Off This Cliff Now and Crush Songs in my ears.

Wrestling Photo of the Month

Posted on Updated on

A new series combining an old obsession with a new: photography and wrasslin.

I wish I knew who took this photo. But I do know it is Bryan Danielson aka Daniel Bryan and Kenta Kobayashi aka KENTA in London, circa 2006. KENTA-gives-Bryan-Busaiku-Knee-Kick-England

Cereal Magic

I thought I was the only one who fills the breakfast bowl with tons of cereal because I am obsessed, but apparently Vaughn Fender also thinks cereal is magic.

PepperJess in Portland!

Posted on Updated on

road-trip-journalI am so excited – starting tomorrow I will be in Portland, OR for five days! I will be there for work, but I will also get plenty of downtime and I could not be more thrilled to explore! I know Voodoo Doughnuts is high priority on my list, but other than that, I will just be wandering around, stumbling upon photobooths and food trucks (I’m hoping.) I cannot wait to take tons of pictures, walk everywhere, and freeze my butt off because this Arizona Girl has no concept of “rainy day wear.”
