unrelated nonsense/bpal stuff

i was just knitting and watching kept on vh1, when a commercial for the new hulk hogan reality show came on (didn't he have a cartoon in the 80s? with a redheaded girl and rowdy roddy piper and captain lou and andre the giant?) and, dude, THE NEW PORNOGRAPHERS were playing in the background of the commercial (it was "letter from an occupant," playing as hulk planned to track his daughter to some party)--further proving the point that mtv and its affiliates have shitty contracts for bands, where they can use the songs however they want and never play the videos (not that those channels play videos).

now, onto bpal stuff:
forbidden fruit
As light and innocent as your first time should have been. The fresh scent of lotus hidden behind lightly scented flowers, amber, and citrus.
in the bottle--fruity, but not really sweet, with a hint of florals.
wet--the florals are much more prominent, but it's not the typical cloying floral perfume scent--is it the lotus that smells so nice?
dry--it's a really pretty floral with a little twist of citrus--definitely a keeper!

The scent of warm, glowing jack o'lanterns on a warm autumn night: true Halloween pumpkin, spiced with nutmeg, glowing peach and murky clove.
in the bottle--i'm a little scared of this one--it's strong and spicy in an unpleasant way.
wet--i can definitely smell pumpkin and nutmeg.
dry--i smell like a friggin' candle. i swear i have a candle that smells exactly like this (pumpkin pie scent!). it's kind of artificial-smelling and definitely nor a good perfume--maybe it could be a room scent in the fall.

MTV and VH1 play crappy videos, but they always seem to have cool music in the background for their shows... Ladytron is a huge MTV staple (yet I have never seen a ladytron video). The editors who work there must be our age, and despise the pop crap kids listen to these days, working their own favorites into the shows they work on to maintain their sanity. And that was Cyndi Lauper on the Hulk Hogan cartoon! Remember, she and Captain Lou Albino had some weird pseudo father-daughter relationship... (MIke)
