Top Five Vibes - 90s

I know nostalgia is a wonderful thing, so today’s top five vibes is about the 90s and all that was good about the decade and I’m not only talking grunge and Beavis and Butthead. Here it goes….

My So-Called Life.  I have expressed numerous times how much I love it. An institution. 

Those ‘empowering’ female musicians  – Bikini Kill (yes), TLC (double yes), Huggy Bear (angry), Alanis Morisette (I admit it…), Hole (totes!!) and let’s not forget this…..TUNE. 

Flannel never looked better. Nor did moodiness.

 Brad Renfro wasn’t yet completely fucked up (and dead). 

When the decade ended I was only 15 years old….oh beautiful teenage years. Sigh.

Top Five Vibes – Drake

We all know I’m obsessed with Drake. He’s an amazing lyricist. His delivery is killer and I actually believe that he’s as sensitive and intelligent as his songs portray him to be. Maybe I’m naïve. Anyway, top five vibes about my fave Drake songs today.

You could’a been the one but it wasn’t that serious. There was smoke in the air before that was me clearing it. That felt good, all and all I learned a lesson from it though - you never see it coming you just get to see it go. Yeah, I should have looked up at the sky at first
, now I can see it in her eyes; fireworks.

“Ha and you all ain't even have to ask twice. You can have my heart or we can share it like the last slice. Always felt like you was so accustomed to the fast life.”

“I know they say the first love is the sweetest, but the first cut is the deepest.”

I might be too strung out on compliments, overdosed on confidence, started not to give a fuck and stop fearing the consequence.”

“What am I afraid of? This is supposed to be what dreams are made of, but people I don't have the time to hang with always look at me and say the same shit -
'You promised me you would never change.'”

The Basics (+ some music)

Hello blog-lovers (and non-blog lovers) recently I got a lot of shtick for my blog. And I’m not used to that, I’m only used to love. I mean who doesn’t love the Book of Linda?

So a few basics first.

If you don’t like my blog, don’t read it. Simples.

If you think my blog is ‘juvenile’, then stop being patronising and all grown-up, cause that’s boring.

If you think my blog is ‘not reserved enough’ and too ‘German’ and ‘outspoken’ then you’re a racist.

If you don’t think that music (and yes boys and relationships and affection and love) are worthy to be talked about in a blog, then I pity you. Cause those are some of the big topics in life. Not exclusively but extensively.

If your horizon is too small to understand the underlying issues of everything I talk about, then you need to activate your creative thinking and imagination.

And finally, yes I could write about how Kafka was commenting on the panopticonian society in ‘The Penal Colony’ or how Lord Rochester’s often-trivialised mock-poetry really was a thinly veiled attack on polity, sexuality and society, but you know what, I CHOOSE NOT TO! So please don’t go on about how my blog is not deep enough and how there’re more important topics to talk about. There might be but this is the Book of Linda after fucking all and not the BBC.

Grrr. Okay now that that’s out of the way, here are some great tunes I’m listening to at the moment. Enjoy.

Crush of the Week - Ryan Gosling

Doing a crush of the week post again today. It’s been a while and today I’m on the obvious choice. Ryan Gosling. I know he’s very good-looking and all that and usually I’m with the ugly oddballs, but even I cannot resist the Gosling magic. Especially not after a movie marathon that consisted of ‘Lars and the Real Girl’ followed by ‘Blue Valentine’ and then followed by ‘Drive’ a few days later in the cinema.

Don’t have a lot to say other than he’s got his heart on his sleeve. In tattoo form. Awww. And he really loves his dog. Awwww. And I like his style and his face.

Celebrity Geek Gallery

I mean we all know I love geeks. I don’t know how many posts I have started with this very sentence. Several. For sure. But this time, it’s special, cause are not talking über-awkward socially apathetic nerds with woolen jumpers who love the develop websites in their spare time “for fun”, but geeks that have actually turned into bona-fide celebrities shedding the sheepskin shawl for ebullient bling. Or something like that, I just really wanted to use that alliteration. Soz.

Anyway, welcome to Linda’s Celebrity Geek Gallery. Enjoy. I did.

Eeeeeek. Avril. Ewwwww.


Eminem. I still love you.

Shia LeBoeuf. Lost for words.

I mean I have always loved Drake. I love him more now.
