HELP ME? (a contest)

Look at the top of the blog and see where it says "Cafe Con Lesley"? Well, it's ugly and boring and I wanna change it.
The problem is I don't have photoshop, skills, or want, to make a pretty banner.


Let's call it a banner contest! Please send me some banners and if you win, obviously it will live on my blog for all the world to see, but also I will interview you AND send you a mix cd.

Not enough? Um... what else can I give you? I don't know. Sometimes people just do these things for fun. Maybe you're a graphic design person and can whip this kinda thing up in minutes.

Anyway, please help me make my blog a better looking place.

(ps blingee inspires me.)

I Started A Side Project Blog

Adjust your peepers! Check out my new side gig.
It's a blog about people who like REALLY don't go out that much.

Sometimes we all need a break from the nightlife and the boogie, so hopefully this blog will inspire you with some ideas on how to spend your alone time.

It's called I Never Go Out.

I must be hungry...

I eat your hate like love.

I haven't been writing that much personal stuff lately because I'm too close to it. I'm like a wad of gum stuck in my own hair.

Mmmmmm... gum.

On another note, I'm really into my new JEGGINGS. They look like jeans but they act like leggings!! My clogs are very right now too.

(dress, ysl. jeggings, h&m. clogs, atomic passion).

The David Lee Roths of Hip Hop: A Beastie Boys Tribute

This video has everything. A gorilla playing an electric guitar, decapitation from head banging, a safe robbery, and bad lighting/makeup (you can see Adrock's herpes).

Watch this one for some of the best dance moves I've ever seen.

At school I majored in advanced Def Jam.

Do you like parties? Let's invite all our friends and have soda and pie.

X Girl pt 2

Today's outfit was inspired by my favorite X Girl and 90s icon and Now icon and one of my favorite people, Miss Chloe Sevs. I was looking for a specific photo that Pat O'Dell took a while ago but I couldn't find it. This is sort of the gist.

T shirt: Given to me by Meryl Smith aka "Merks-Gruber" aka "Merks Fish."
Plaid button down: Sal's Boutique aka Salvation Army
*You can't see my raver jeans but they're just your basic wild boot cuts from The Gap. Sneakers, Adidas Rod Lavers.

There's a whole soundtrack that goes along with it too. It's my Long Island Rail Road playlist. The songs I used to listen to when I took the train into the city. The songs I listened to when I wanted to be cool in the 90s.

1. Quicksand: Dinosaur Jr.
2. 6'1": Liz Phair
3. She Be Wantin' It More: Luscious Jackson
4. Prove My Love: Violent Femmes
5. I Wish I Was Him: Kathleen Hanna
6. My Drug Buddy: The Lemonheads
7. Stick The Fucking Flag Up Your Ass You Goddamn Son Of A Bitch: Propagandhi
8. Puzzle Pieces: Tiger Trap
9. March: Avail
10. #1 Chance Pirate TV: Team Dresch

There are 1000 more. One day I'll add them.

X Girls

It's really hard to capture how hard I'm feeling myself today. I mean outfit-wise. It's totally 90s inspired by Marisa Meltzer's new book, Girl Power. Marisa is the genius behind the Sassy book, and now she has a new book about 90s girl bands.

I wore my X Girl shirt, can you see?
Photobooth does not do wonders for me.

Here's another attempt, plus the "outside" version of the outfit. Note girly thermal worn under the t shirt. CLASSIC 90S.

If you don't buy Marisa's book you're a total poseur!
Guess what I'm gonna do later? Oh just make a list of my top 10 favorite girl bands is all. STAY TUNED MY DUDES!
