obsessed.: Neon geometric bowls, "Hit Song" and Bomb The Music Industry!


I ran across these adorable bowls while at Target last week and immediately snatched them up. They're supposedly dip bowls, but I'm not sure that's what I'll use them for. I'm not actually sure what I'll end up using them for ... but at $.99 for each pair, how could I resist? Neon yellow + (dark) grey + a super deal = obsessed. (They're also both microwave and dishwasher safe!)


I tried to find them online, but it's almost like they don't exist! I found them on an endcap in/near the kitchen stuff, so if you take a trek to your local Target, I'd start there.

And this week, from the Mister:

I knew Colt would choose this song as his obsessed. submission this week when he couldn't stop humming it for days on end. (NSFW for cursing and an exploding Steampunk Hitler.)



Colt loves him some catchy electronica tunes. Add to a song a little bit of ridiculous humor, and you've got, well, a total Colt hit. I will admit, I definitely started chair dancing when he sent it to me the first time. (Sorry for the ear worm!)

And from TGG:

Wes' submission this week is a song from Bomb the Music Industry! (BtMI!). This "DIY one-man punk band"  is the brainchild of Jeff Rosenstock, who started the music project after his ska/punk band Arrogant Sons of Bitches started gaining popularity and he realized his dream was turning into something he didn't want. Wes discovered BtMI! via his brother-in-law several years ago.

According to TGG: "Rosenstock's music is a mix of punk, ska, pop, alternative, synth-pop, metal, folk and anything else that crosses his mind. Generally the songs stay on the fast and loud side with a rough sound that make them feel a little more real. Lyrically he sings about his life in a very straightforward and almost conversational way. His songs are all about self-doubt, self-confidence and how terrible it feels sometimes to follow your dreams. He's incredibly good at weaving a concept throughout an album and taking you from one side of an issue on the first track, to the opposite side on the last track. The main thing I take away from listening to BtMI! is that sometimes life sucks a lot and terrible things happen, but sometimes amazing things happen too, and the sooner you can accept that the less you worry about what is or isn't going right for you at the time."

His submission today is a track from To Leave or Die on Long Island. (If you're interested in hearing more, you can download all of BtMI!'s music here. )
