Hot, lazy and weird. It's on my business cards.

Y'all.  This summer is killing my internet spirit.  All Charlemagne and I do is take naps and drink iced coffee.  I almost took two naps on the SAME DAY this weekend because fuck it.  But I got another iced coffee so that kinda woke me up just enough to fold more laundry before I promptly laid down on it and almost feel asleep again. 

I know every blogger says the exact same thing every summer but it's true.  Hot = slow in the head.  I barely want to get on the internet and when I do it's on Pinterest for five minutes.  

Ok, kidding.  I've been watching a shit ton of Youtube videos of people shooting guns... DON'T JUDGE!  

But somehow when I wasn't whining about how lame the internet is, I found this groovy tumblr  that completely captures my lazy summer.  June 1972 is where I stole all these images of what my brain feels like - hot, lazy and weird.  It's like No Country For Old Men with aliens.

And campers.  Seriously, who doesn't love a vintage camper?  WHO, GAWDDAMIT?!

I don't know what going on here but YES, EXACTLY THIS.

I bet a lot of good things happened at the Bad Hotel.

Robot luv forever.

I'm more scared of being trampled by a horse than aliens.  And being set on fire if we're actually making a list.

Speaking of Carl, I watched/napped through Contact for the 1000th time this weekend for the weird non-chemistry between Jody Foster and Mathew McConaughey and I think it refueled my desire for aliens in the desert.  
I had to watch it because I tried to be a real girl the night before and watched Crazy, Stupid, Love and what a fucking waste of two hours that was.  I'll never get that time back!!  This is why I fucking hate romantic comedies.  They are neither romantic nor contain comedy and there should be some kind of movie prison where we can lock up movies for criminal false advertising.

I think buffaloes belong in my weird, lazy, hot brain.

MOAR EXPLOSIONS!!  I think I'm just really stoked for the new Bourne moving coming up next month.  Those movies really strike a nice balance of romance and comedy for me.

Love cheap motels so so much.  Not that I ever stay in them... anymore.  *ahem*

here
I think this is actually Graceland which doesn't fit geographically with the already tenuous theme of this post but I want the inside of the above motel to be decorated like this.

It all makes sense in my head, I swear.

Obsessed with the picture and I have no idea why.  Possibly the candy-colored vinyl.

Of course, this whole thing probably has nothing to do with the Dr. Who episode Impossible Astronaut that I watched earlier this summer...
here
Because as you might remember, it was all I talked about for a while.  I have very active social life.

That's a well-dressed alien, y'all.

here
I swear I'm going to replace my Dr. Who obsession with other things!  Other things that no one else cares about but me. 

Probably like this.  But at least it'll be a new thing you won't care about and that seems a little more fun, right?


Sorry* I'm such a terrible design blogger.  But at least we have more fun and nachos over here!


And aliens?!


*not sorry.

  1. I love that those candy coloured chairs are gathered to watch a motel painting.

    1. After a couple glasses of wine, I could definitely see myself doing that.

  2. I feel ya on the romantic comedies. The ones I like are few and far between. I prefer Quentin Tarantino and disaster flicks.

    1. Agreed! I'm so stoked for the new Quentin Tarantino Django Unchained coming out soon. But Leo's teeth make my skin crawl. Well, actually he kinda makes my skin crawl anyway but the teeth really take it to another level.

    1. You're welcome! Unless you now feel superior rather than down in the trenches with the rest of hot, lazy weirdos... ; )

  4. This post hits close to home for me:

    1. I lived in the desert for 12 years, so joshua trees and barrel cacti hold sentimental value for me.
    2. I was born in the badlands of SD on an air force base. The night of that occurrence my father reports seeing a UFO. Sooo, alien DNA (Prometheus, and Ancient Aliens support this prospect).
    3. The designer in me digs Airstream trailers, immensely.
    4. I've travelled Route 66 many times, and these images feel like way points from my own vast territory of madness.

    1. 1. I've never been to the desert (other than CO but not sure if that counts) and always wanted to go. Me and the sun don't mix well so maybe during winter... ; )

      2. Bad. Ass. Prometheus was, of course, a documentary.

      3. Word.

      4. I think you'd really like the rest of this tumblr - I just cherrypicked some random things I liked. I love it when I find things that I like and they work so well for someone else too. Design blog hugs.

  5. I am fascinated by cactus, perhaps due to the duality of thorns and delicate flowers, makes me want to grab them, but I can't ... well, I could... but then I would regret it.
    Tell charlemagne that Krakatoa envies him, and we're not talking about a well-meaning envy here, we're freezing.

    1. Me too! I like the idea of beauty not being so accessible and maybe a bit deadly/dangerous.

      I give big snuggles to Southern hemisphere kitties - they are welcome to visit anytime. I have bacon and sunshine.

  6. Too funny! For a lazy summer you snagged a boatload of pictures. Maybe it is the aliens who have something to do with this new summer heat wave/ drought we've got going on this year. Nice Graceland photo, proof in the wrong hands any color can get ugly. :)

    1. It's definitely the aliens that are messing with our weather. Who else could cause massive global warming than someone with advanced technologies?!

      I kinda like how terrible that gold color is... ; )

  7. If acid trips looked like this, I'd like to go on one, please. Except for the aliens and guns. They can co-exist with me as long as they don't come near me.

    1. Or you could smoke some peyote - that would fit with the theme better!

      Obviously we should take a class together in saucy gun safety and you'll be fine! You're on your own with aliens though...

  8. That horse picture is damned awesome.

    1. Thanks for the love! I appreciate it more than male strippers. And no I haven't seen the movie yet - I wasn't actually going to spend theater money on it. But HBO? Fuck yeah!

      Delete
  10. It was not worth $11 at a regular theater. I would have preferred $8 at the dumpy one near me. If Channing Tatum put a bag over his head he'd be perfect.
