Hier Und Jetzt – 7 August 2009

I’m listening to:Wow, wow, wow. Rick Astley and Nirvana who would’ve thought they’d make the best mashup!? I love this song so much.

Nirvana vs Rick Astley – Never Gonna Give Your Teen Spirit up

Jace Everett – Bad Things (better known as the True Blood theme song)

Watched this week: The Soloist

On my wishlist Best buy:
I’ve already linked to this bag twice, but I’ve been thinking about it all week and I haven’t mentioned it on here for 8 months so it’s time for another outing.
I. Want. This. Bag! Why is it so hard to ship internationally? :[
[Edit – I am such a dick, why in the past year did I not think to search the net to see if anyone else stocks their gear? Brain fog finally cleared and I just bought the bag from the UK at a cheaper price than getting it from Loungefly direct. I’m feeling pretty pleased with myself even though it took me so long!]

I’m loving: Being a geek, sleeping till noon, having a supportive partner and family, having a doctor that cares, True Blood, http://twitter.com/MsConstantine/status/3104724658, attracting great customers.

Hier Und Jetzt – 10 July 2009

On my iPod: Crazy Sexy Cool by TLC

Watched this week: Bruno; Season 4 of the Gilmore Girls; Australia.

Best buy: I received an email last week from Goggles4u.com offering me a free pair of frames (because I had entered my prescription details on their site and signed up to their mailing list, not because I’m special) so I decided to have another look around. Googles4u is the place that had the amazing red and black frames I lusted after in another Hier Und Jetzt. It turns out that sometimes they hold only one or two pairs of a frame so you’ve got to be quick if you spot something you like.
Their prices are already ridiculously cheap at $13 for frames and a starting price of $17 for lenses, I couldn’t say no to an extra offer of free frames. So I ordered these babies. They promptly went into out of stock once I’d placed my order.

They shipped they day after I ordered them so should get here in another week. Even if they turn out to be shit, don’t fit my face etc it’s no big deal because they cost me less than a dinner at a restaurant. And shipping was free. Awesome!

On my wishlist: Blackbird’s Attackin’ in the Dead ‘O’ Night t shirt. Pretty, I love that it’s plain black on the back and mostly white with black pattern on the front. Unfortunately it is only left in L and XL size.


What I’m Loving: Whittaker’s toasted coconut block. I’m halfway through my second block of the week; Bruno!!; Being able to find out so much about peoples lives through the Internet. I’ve been feeling very voyeuristic this week; fully realising that gender and sexualities don’t need to fit into boxes and can be as fluid as you like; androgyny; swamps.

Favourite photo: Did you know that swamps are one of my favourite things to look at?

Hier Und Jetzt – 4 July 2009

Movies watched this week: Green Street Hooligans; Never Back Down; Marley & Me (I’m so glad I didn’t see this at the movies, I bawled a lot! :'[); Meet the Browns (terrible movie!!).

On my wishlist: A black or pink “Delete Grenade“. Pretty.

Delete Grenade

What I’m Loving: Hanging out with friends, boys dressed as girls, boys dressed as nerds, being a night owl, Gilmore Girls (!), new readers, possessing the scone gene, Family Guy, caramello chocolate, free organic kiwifruit which is sweet and isn’t tangy.

Best line: “A hard yank will usually do the trick (and is very satisfying), but you could use wire cutters or a soldering iron if you are a poof want to do it right.” – Ben.geek.nz

Favourite photo: Encroaching Evil. Amazing!

Encroaching Evil

Hier Und Jetzt – 25 June 2009

On my iPod: It’s Not Me It’s You by Lily Allen. Particularly loving the track Fuck You.

Movies watched this week: My Best Friends Girl

On my wishlist: Original Modern Rock Ring in Silver by metalicious. So cool, it’s a diamond shaped ring but made entirely out of sterling silver. The best part is it’s a tiny fraction of the cost of a diamond ring.

Silver Diamond Ring

What I’m Loving: Goks Fashion Fix – I was sceptical, but spotted this show on TVNZ On Demand and decided to check it out. I’m in love. Gok is amazing and inspiring. He does say literally a lot though, he uses the word correctly but it’s still annoying to hear it so often. And when his clothes are compared to the designers they look overdone. But I still think I’ll be making this show a regular feature in my viewing schedule!
