Damn those product naming efforts

Someone saw my desktop and pointed out I’m crazy so I wanted to check to see if it’s just me or you also customize your computer to make sense to you. Really, I don’t care what a company called their product, I’m more interested in what *I* do with it. Once it’s on my desktop, it becomes part of the Liv Suite (TM) and it works how I tell it to work. Humph.

LadyBlunt: Separated at Birth

I watched The Devil Wears Prada a couple of weeks ago and apart from the mild entertainment, I was curious throughout the entire film by actress Emily Blunt. I’d seen her in My Summer of Love so she looked familiar, but she reminded me of someone else and I couldn’t quite think of whom. I forgot about it until I went to the record store yesterday (to get the latest Ladytron remix) then it hit me: Helen Marnie!

Am I right? Also, Ladytron fans out there, go get the new Extended Play mix, it’s good. And, AND!, not only are they coming to play in Philly this September 26th, but Cansei de Ser Sexy (from my hometown, Sao Paulo) will be opening for them. Yaay!
