Just because I'm on a huge Laura marling kick... here's the video for "New Romantic" (Sorry if anyone's offended by the minor expletive. Or general, erm, moodiness. I think it's lovely.)

  1. Ooooh...I like the illustration. :) I'm so excited to see that new movie too, I hope they don't ruin it. I'll have to check out some of those songs as well... :)

  2. My roommate made me go to Fantastic Mr. Fox and I loved it! And you should try the banana strawberry smoothies at Maggie Moos. I've never tasted anything better. (Ok, so I did used to work there so I might be a little biased, but really somehow there was always extra when I made that shake. Don't know how that always happened!) p.s. I think peanut butter can be eaten with anything!
