this is absolutely advice I’ve been given IRL.
[Katrin Hagen, how to keep warm this winter 2 (2010)]
Crystal Castles - Not in Love (feat. Robert Smith)
again. because this is even better coming into winter than it was at the start of summer. and because I really, really should be writing. so many words to arrange. by yesterday. rad attack.
animal collective - winter’s love
in winter time I have no legs
mad mad eight way vitamin attack
when I was all teenagery and way into Franz Ferdinand, I read an interview with Alex Kapranos. he talked about being ill on tour and the logic that led him to consume an entire bottle of multi-vitamins in one go. because they are healthy. so lots are really healthy. this right here.
and hey, it’s not just that I’m into that artfully disheveled winter chic and that I feel all sexy in an over-sized/men’s jumper. especially with boots and fingerless gloves and patterned stockings and a string of pearls and something making my casio feel it has friends. because sitting at cream reviewing a show has never been so professional and cool (and I have that on the authority of a notorious stoner). so maybe I abandon cream, but I’m into the look and it’s such a lazy one. and it’s not just that it’s so easy to ride in. and it’s not just that Amy does it on Doctor Who and I so want to hang out with the Doctor because that would so beat reality and I bet we’d find dragons. and I like seeing it on other people and not just me, because I like to know that they are also warm and comfortable. (there is nothing more disquieting than a girl with bare legs in the middle of winter. and you want to grab her and wrap her up in a blanket and feed her tea. and you want to know where her mother is. and if her boyfriend actually thinks she is a comfortable temperature.)
I hope to one day be in love with a person even half as much as I am in love with jumpers right now.
