Kittyprism-猫プリズム-and a playlist

Cat Prism necklace from And A, Fukuoka
I just had to have this little wood and plastic guy. I mean, come on, it's hilarious. I love how the cat is just like, "lol...wut?" It was a costly 1200 yen, but well worth it. The store was marketing it as a necklace, but I like him hanging in my living room window as a prism to catch the light reflecting off of the lake down the street. I WOULD wear it as a monocle, if I could. 

Now onto the playlist:
The Rubies- "Stand In A Line (Shinichi Osawa Remix)"
Asobi Seksu- "Thursday (The Twelves Remix)"
Adeyhawke- "To Me"
Theatre of Disco- "YOA (The Twelves Remix)"
Anoraak- "Nightdrive With You"
Yuksek- "Tonight"
The Presets- "This Boy's In Love (Lifelike Remix)
Any and all of The Twelves mixtapes.

The Twelves are a reoccurring pattern here- a lot of their appeal for me, apart from their obvious talent, is their name. I'm such an amateur in electronic music and usually go for anything fun and bang-y and slightly goofy. The above have been looped constantly, especially the Osawa remix (he is and always will be my first musical love).

Happy Happy Valentine

I'm obsessed with cards. Greeting cards, postcards, any cards. Anything printed, really. Which is why all I asked for this holiday was a card. My valentine knows me so well!

The left is a book illustration reproduction from the V&A Museum; the right is classically something my boyfriend would get me. He left it intentionally blank so we could frame it and put it up. It just screams, "Hey let's head back to my place in the Mini and put on some records!"
