OK, so here’s the ironic thing: I got sicker over the week, not better. Around Wednesday, I was diagnosed with bronchitis, and spent Turkey Day trying not to hack up a lung while I ate delicious food (and not-so-delicious antibiotics). Now, I’m just horribly fatigued, but luckily the hacking has gone down a bit — and I didn’t even lose a lung! But, as a result, I had not spare energy to wish all my [hopefully] gastronomically satisfied readers a wonderful Thanksgiving (you know, the ones who celebrate Thanksgiving — otherwise, you can have a wonderful Thursday or be thankful for something and say you celebrated along with “those pesky Americans”!). Well, I’m here to tell you that I do and did wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving, even if it was mentally only.
Now, onto the Monday Music Madness, which I promised would be back this week and I always [try] to keep my promises.
I really like Lana Del Rey, and I have most of her songs, especially from her “Born to Die” album. This song, “Blue Jeans”, always makes me shiver (but then, there’s something about the husky-but-haunting quality of her voice that is shiver inducing, right?). Plus, the trippy, random wavy-ripply-Lana-face in the beginning half-minute of the song fits my cough-syrup-hyped mood this week. So Lana Del Rey’s “Blue Jeans” it is!
P.S. Did anyone else notice the weirdness of having Lana Del Rey in her usual retro clothes singing about some hot dude like James Dean who is all tattooed with gauges and stuff? Is that like retro-modern? And what’s with the crocodiles? I’d definitely get out of that pool. It seems to have an infestation.
