"Why does everyone keep whispering?"

— My father while watching True Detective

Is it possible for an insect to be catatonic? There’s one on the wall in my basement, and it hasn’t moved for a good week. I don’t think it’s dead — it just sits there. It may be depressed. I won’t kill it because it may want me to.

Going back into my Noisettes/Shingai Shoniwa obsession. THE QUEEN.

As am I. I listened to What’s the Time, Mr. Wolf? on the way to work and it made me go: what the hell happened to this band? They went pop on the next release - which is fine - but after that…WHAT HAPPENED? Was it the fact that Jamie left the band? It seems that, in the meantime, Shingai’s been getting her cover girl on (who can blame her), but…the music. Dear glob, the music. Oh well.

I reaalllly want one of these so I can remember the good times. But I just checked Amazon, and all I see are these inferior imitations. NOPE.

poor guy

Well this about sums up everything, doesn’t it? It’s the day after, and, while everything has been said, I feel I have to add my outsider, totally uninformed, non-expert view to the mix.
No one expected last night to happen. Even if you wanted Germany to win, you probably thought: ‘Not like this.’ Anyone who can look at this poor guy above and still feel giddy probably runs over baby squirrels for sport (just kidding. sort of). 
What I really think is that those who are ecstatic about this result have grown tired of the view that winning is seen as Brazil’s birthright. While some of the media fawning can be forgiven - seeing as how the Cup is in the country and all - the air of “this is destiny” apparently grated on more than a few nerves. It’s not a foregone conclusion if you don’t show up to play.

Um, this would be about the time that you’d call a time out.
