make your own mix-tape, ONLINE! i'm super excited about this website. instead of zipping files and emailing, you can just upload and give out the link. one of the vimeo peeps created it and tumbl'd it yesterday. in 4.5 hours, the site had 2000 users and 4000 songs. in 24 hours this site has generated 8,685 users / 19,731 songs / 35,000 visits. how awesome is that? seriously? things like this make me even more excited to go to NYC in June, to meet all these super creative people.
click on the picture or go here to see other muxtapes. look at me, i'm on the front page...wheeeee! top row, even. =)
some things to know about the site. 3-line sign up: username, password, email. that's it. also, when listening to a muxtape, switch between tracks with the left and right arrow keys, and use ‘return’ to pause and play. songs will advance from track to track in a loop by default.
here's mine if you wanna listen:

war and civil war exclusion clause

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein this Policy does not cover Loss or Damage directly or indirectly occasioned by, happening through or in consequence of war, invasion, acts of foreign enemies, hostilities (whether war be declared or not), civil war, rebellion, revolution, insurrection, military or usurped power or confiscation or nationalisation or requisition or destruction of or damage to property by or under the order of any government or publice or local authority.


we just switched our insurance on the rent house. this was included in the new policy. there was also a Terrorist Invasion Clause.

happy birthday big sis!

Dear S1,

through the years we've had our moments. moments we wanted to kill each other, moments of throwing sharp objects at each other, and moments we basically just wanted to strangle each other. HARD! but, we've also had moments of sisterly love. they've become more often in our your later years. you've become more accessible... or maybe it's just that you don't have as many friends any more so you call me more often. i'm not sure.

what i am sure of - i like being your sister now. i can't imagine you not being around... loud as you are. i freak out if i don't hear from you after a couple of days. i start calling your husband to see what he did with the body. i start to actually miss you. ick. i like that we're able to hang out and actually enjoy being with each other. i know you'll never go see live music with me and you understand that i hate malls, but we still manage to find something to do. pedicures come to mind.

i think we all know i'm not good with words and writing down what i really want to express, but just know that i have tears in my eyes right now just thinking of how much i love you and appreciate you (when you're not being a total beeeyoch). you're my big sister and my best friend (but don't tell Addie).

Your Little Sis

HAPPY BIRTHDAY OLD LADY! from islebehere on Vimeo.
