Can’t Touch This

Forgive me father
For I have succumbed
To an unspeakable evil…

MC Hammer pants!

I know you’re probably thinking “How can pants ever be evil?”, but trust me… My body type and harem pants aren’t really made for each other. Nevertheless, after years of trying them on and resisting (and Chili Chicken Guy laughing his but off at my horrible yet non existent imitation of the MC Hammer dance), I did get a pair, and I love them. They are so comfortable and light and perfect for these muggy days we’ve been having here, without being revealing and thus work-proof. And honestly, I don’t think I look all that awful in them. Or maybe I just don’t care.

They’re pretty simple and black, made of very thin cotton so they don’t look like sweats too much. I hope this makes some sense, I did try to  look up a picture online to show you, but there’s so many different ones that it was kind of hopeless! Oh, and did I mention the best part? They were on sale! Only €9 at New Look.

All in all, I’m happy. I got something that’s “so not me”, paid next to nothing for it, and I’ve already been enjoying them way too much. Yay! However, I do want to give credit where credit’s due. There’s one very talented lady who inspired me to get out of my fashion safe zone this time. You might have read a little about her in my guest post last month, but you should really check out her blog here too!

What are your thoughts on harem pants? And, more importantly, can YOU do the MC Hammer dance? :)

Thanks for reading!

YouTube Hopping: Watch The Throne

I love YouTube Hopping; when you start listening to a song on YouTube, and then click on one of the recommendations because you might like that song too, and then again, and again, until you’ve spent two hours hopping through songs. In fact, I’ve spent the last two days doing just that; first with my mom when I was visiting my parents, and the next day with my boyfriend. Mom and I went for really old songs (let’s say between the 70’s and the 90’s), and it was a total blast from the past.

Le man and I, on the other hand, started out with something a little more new(ish), some guy called Twista (I didn’t know him, but shit, that dude raps FAST!), who happened to lead us to Kanye West and Jay-Z, and more specifically their awesome collaboration called Watch The Throne.

Oh, and how awesome it was! It’s very rare that almost every song on an album is good; usually there’s only two or three of them at most. Another exception to that rule is Iron Maiden’s Brave New World, and don’t even get me started on the soundtrack of Queen of the Damned! I think that’s the only album I’ve loved entirely.

Anyway… Back to Watch The Throne. Did I already tell you it was awesome? Oh, yes I did. Well, fuck it, it is. There were only two (yes, two!) songs on it we didn’t really like; “Lift Off” and “That’s My Bitch”. I was kind of bummed out about the latter, because we made a game out of predicting which were going to be good, and I mentioned that one… Fail :( And it wasn’t the only time I was wrong. But that’s okay, because I’ve discovered quite a few new awesome songs, which is always the best part of YouTube Hopping!

I’m curious; do you ever hop through YouTube? And what’s the most awesome thing you’ve found by accident? Let us know in the comments ;)

Thanks for reading, and have a great Easter!
