also, the Charlotte airport is cool because it has rocking chairs and you can actually see the city from the airport. but it really needs more outlets for charging. #LondonTrip2014

Four pictures stick to the concrete wall of a dorm room above an extra-long twin bed. “So what’s with David Letterman?” the roommate’s boyfriend asks. “That’s got to be a joke or something, right?” No. It’s not a joke. The other three pictures are some late 90s/early 2000s heartthrobs, Matthew McConaughey and two other unmemorable dudes. The guy thought it strange the 18-year-old girl placed Letterman in a block of photos featuring her crushes. But Letterman was in the No. 1 spot. “Say what you will about his looks, that gap in his teeth, those dorky glasses—but there is a certain sex appeal David Letterman possess,” she tells the frat guy. It’s the sense of humor. His wit. The way he handles a difficult interview. The perfectly timed retort. That sarcasm.

I spent pretty much every week night of my 4 years in undergrad watching David Letterman (you know, in pre-YouTube era time). Not to mention the years before and after that. I hope he enjoys retirement. He’ll always have a place in my heart. (also, I won’t apologize for decorating one small square of my dorm room wall with crushes. the rest of the posters were bands and movies.)

I think dancing is one of the best things anyone can do for themselves. And it doesn’t cost anything. Frankie Knuckles (via britticisms)

CHVRCHES music set to pure 80s awesomeness. The only thing that could make this better was if the band was performing this exercise routine.

The Perfect Record Review

markrichardson:
