Birthday Flowers

21 Jun

I was going to post something that had to due with my never ending cavalcade of life failures. But after I had lunch with a friend I realized it really isn’t so bad. I wouldn’t be who I am without failures, and there was no way I wouldn’t have tried.

It’s just one of those things… that just didn’t work out for Ol’ Laurie Lue

BUT!!!!

Then this morning I heard it was one of my fashion icons/ cosmic twin’s birthday!!!

And I live for Birthday’s…

Especially… Brandon Flowers!!!

Not only is he the lead singer of the “Killers”… but he also has a penchant for the Cure and wearing fashion while carving out some melodies of his own that have a special place in my soul.

Happy Birthday Spaceman

He also reminds me that I really need to get a gold lame leopard print tuxedo… just for funsies.

Happy Wednesday good people of the internet,

Rock & Roll

23 Nov

There are always those songs that bring a smile to your face no matter what is going on… or how old you’ve gotten.

I always remember the first time I heard the Velvet Underground.

I was 15, and this really cool boy with the perfect blue hair made me a mixtape, that was just the right amount of suburban rebellion. And it had this song on it… it sounded nothing like the N*SYNC and Britney Spears on the radio… it was completely different.

It sounded like… joy.

And I never looked back, I searched for my own sounds, found my own soundtracks.

I played that CD until it skipped in like 3 different parts and later succumbed to the heart-breaking ending of melting in my car. #livingincaliforniaproblems.

Anyways:

and you can listen to the song here:

I should go to sleep.

Tom Hanks Syndrome

18 Nov

I feel like this title sounds a lot more serious than any of this post really could be…

Today I watch like my 12th Tom Hanks Movie of the year.

Which really takes up the movie time between me watching “Scream Queens” and 80s Brat-pack movies.

So I found my well watched dvd of “Sleepless in Seattle” while I started to draw… and what I was really surprised with is how really charming Meg Ryan makes stalking look…

Like if you think about it, she was really stalking him. She flew across the country and watched him and his son playing on the beach.

He didn’t know who she was… like at all. He was just trying to chill with his son.

But anyways, she was charming and cute, and she peeled apples in a very unusual way… and it worked out for all of them.

And, all in all, the movie is still really cute.

So that is really nice.

One thing about the movie that is also super cute is the music.

My sister was like really concerned that I knew the lyrics to “A WInk and  Smile”… but I’m pretty sure it’s on a list of like the most adorable tunes of all time.

Thanks Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan for being so super cute. I’m going to go watch Scream Queens now.

Partyline

22 Jan

I’ve had this song in my head for like 2 weeks.

I’ve been listening to it in the car.

On my headphones on repeat.

On my phone at work without headphones.

In my bed, instead of sleeping.

In the morning when I’m brushing my teeth.

And even while I’m eating chicken.

I tried to find out if I could make a career listening to this song until my ears stopped working… but I haven’t found one yet.

So here is the song “Partyline” from Belle & Sebastian to get stuck in your head too:

Bowie

8 Jan

Is there life on Mars? And do they celebrate birthdays there?

I hope so. And more on that topic today is David Bowie’s birthday.

And since he’s one of my favorite things I decided to draw this in his honor:

the 29th

22 Nov

It totally happened.

I turned 29. And it was good.

                                        29 and feeling strangely fine

I have never really feared aging… maybe because I feel happy about pretty much everyday.

And apparently everyone at work thought I turned 23… so super bonus?

I got treated very kindly by my new coworkers and friends and…. really just had a great time.

I usually use this post to reflect on the last 12 months and set a few new goals… which I will happily do if you continue to read on

Things I learned at 28:

♥ That I’m not all together that weird.  I was made to think that most people aren’t terribly creative or prone to fantasy over the years… and I have met a few people this year that have shown me that this is not the case. And that it’s okay to be any which way you are.

♥That sometimes a change will do you good. I may not have chosen all the changes that have happened this year… but all in all they have been the best things that have happened to me! Woot woot– higher quality of life–

♥That I’m a good worker. The first time I was ever eligible for a review and it… went really well.

be the Leslie Knope of what you do

♥ That giving people a chance can be a great thing and lead to great relationships… it can also get you stalked. Both have happened this year.

♥That engineers are very awkward… but also so, so adorable.

♥That it’s okay to be a little more on the flashy side of life.

Bernadette Peters is the best!

♥That sometimes space away from certain people, is what you need more than anything. Because they are making you stall in the things you want to get done.

Not anymore!

♥Some times nothing beats good friends, and cheesecake.

The "Golden Girls" Drinking Game Is Something You Need To Play Right Now

♥That you will do so many things for people who are important to you… including getting lost in the Hollywood Hills. And it’s nice to get to do those things

♥ And that Paul McCartney can still really perform.

Things I will do this year:

♥Start a business that involves my art for real this time. I have seen so many people who do this, at my new job… and I want to be more like them!

♥Participate in all the things I can. Except for really boring stuff, that I still won’t do

♥Create the costume my doodle is wearing for Halloween. It comes from this music video which is one of my favorites:

I want to be dressed like this dreamy 22nd century rooster

♥Go to Spain, I have the money to have a very nice vacation… and that will never be enough money to buy a house in California.

And with that I thank you for reading this and looking at my silly doodles. Here’s to a super wonderful year.

In my car on the way to work it’s the “Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust”

On the way home it’s all about “Modern Love”.
