courtneymusic, personal

So I ordered a Flip Video, which I guess means I’ll be joining the ranks of the vlogging soon (like twitter, I blame this on the lovely Daisy Whitney). I’m excited about it even though I’ve decided I don’t really want to talk to the camera that much, discuss writing or show my face at all. Doomed for failure, that’s me! But I’m totally gonna fail awesomely because THAT’S HOW I ROLL.

I think Joanna Bourne’s first sale story on Dear Author is my absolute most favourite yet. You should read it.

In other news, I’m completely addicted to Duffy’s Rockferry thanks to Kim (of the scathingly hilarious, unimitable What Claudia Wore). It’s incredible. It’s so driven and sexy and take-back-that-broken-heart empowering! I’m going to write tons to it, I can tell. My only complaint is that Duffy does not have fulls songs on her myspace which means I cannot make them my profile song. Lame! Also she hasn’t friended me back on myspace. Neither has Carla Bruni. Thnx a lot, people I buy music of’s myspaces. You hurt me.

Also, when I bought Rockferry, Britney Spears’s Blackout LEAPED OFF THE SHELVES AND INTO MY HANDS and I am not one to fight fate or musical genius so I got that too. I could devote an entire paragraph to how AMAZING Blackout is but you’d all just think I was being sarcastic. It is Brit’s most personal yet and I heart it. It makes me sad her personal life totally overshadowed its sweet poppy dancey goodness. My only complaint is the cover. I know you can look sexier than that, Brit-brit. Call me! I photograph peoples on the side.

Speaking of music, I mentioned this in twitter but the link doesn’t work and I can’t edit it (lame!), Brad Sucks’s newest album Out of It is available for pre-order, so you should probably do that (you can pick the price and everything–$5 minimum for CDs, and your purchase includes the MP3s and the lossless FLAC format, what a steal!). I’ve yet to meet a Brad Sucks song I don’t like so I’m pretty excited for September where I can meet more and like them too. If you are leery of pre-ordering music you have never heard before (weirdo), his first album is available for FREE download or purchase. Start with Look and Feel Years Younger, Fixing My Brain, Bad Attraction, Dirtbag and Time to Take Out the Trash (my fav).

Eee, I love music.

My sister and her husband are flying in from China soon and I am SUPER EXCITED because I haven’t seen them in a year. They are in the air right now! They could call at any moment and say PICK US UP FROM THE AIRPORT and we’d have to DROP EVERYTHING AND DO IT!

So I guess I should try to make a dent in all the emails I owe people now.
