Dr Martens

Long johns post will be coming up soon.


I've been wanting a pair for a few months now. But every time I imagine myself purchasing them, I've been questioning whether I should actually buy them or not.

(Luella S/S 2008 - LOVE this collection.)

I'm totally undecided still.

Today, I got to have another proper look at them. They're fairly stiff and heavy. Yes, I know they're boots so that is what is to be expected, and they have be broken in to be not so stiff.

I love the idea of boots. They look cool and they're definitely going to keep your feet safe from a lot of things.

But girls in boots? They're fairly masculine, not the dainty, girly, little shoe type. Somewhat recenetly, they're becoming more in fashion, generally being worn with girly outfits, floral skirts, cute stuff. To balance the masculine style of course. I've looked at a few links with answers of what people think of girls in boots. Mostly, the guys were idiotic anyway, and disliked the idea, most girls were pro it. One of my friends were them pretty much most of the time, she gets by fine, no problems with getting boyfriends.

Different strokes, difference folks, right?

The original reason for me not to buy a pair was because I have ma-hoo-sive calfs. I'm really aware of them, though it doesn't stop me from wearing skinny jeans and leggings. But if the shoes end from just the calf, that isn't going to be flattering, it'll just make them look bigger. And now, the added dilemma of looking too butch. I dress kinda grungey now anyway, not particularly girly. So added boots aren't going to help.


Despite my crappy body shape - apple if you must know, weight mainly shift around the middle. The worst shape of course. Thanks fate.

Luckily, despite this, my legs are fairly skinny, hence me just wearing leggings all the time. Because I can. I don't show cleavage, I show leg. Short little legs.

I'm making an effort to lose weight, so hopefully by the time I wear them all the time, i'll be this skinny asian chick with boots.

Agy Deyn is a good example for a constant boot wearer. Quite a few images of her wearing them around.

I just want to go NYC now. Fuck uni. NYC.

And I have a shitting headache.

Twisted Princess

Disney + Marvel comics =

I don't really care for Disney, nor much for Marvel Comics. Yes, i've probably watched quite a lot of cartoons/films of both.. companies? Is that even right to call Marvel that? It just doesn't sound right.

Righty ho.

Until just now, i've only heard about an illustrator named Jefffry Thomas. I love illustrations/things to do about illustrations, so why i've not heard of him is crazy as I usually do stumble upon the most random people, but again, i'm not very into comics, and some things to do with comics. Ok. I'm just contradicting myself a lot here, and perhaps offending comic fans. Disney... meh. Not so much. I mean thanks for High School Musical, but you also gave us HSM 2 and 3 - I would like my money back please, and Miley Cyrus.

I found this gem.

Most people stereotype themselves and say, "Oh, i'm (insert your hair colour)" or "Oh, i'm (insert Disney Princess) because i'm just like her." or something kind of annoying like that. Oh come on, just because you DYE your hair blonde doesn't-make-you-god-damn-Cinderella.

By all means, I would say i'm fucking Mulan. And allegedly, she wasn't even a Princess. Thanks. Just take that away from me. Like the time in secondary school when my close I hung around with 3 other girls (they were one group I hung around with, I had many, the art freaks, the music freaks... etc,) and the two girls named themselves after either the two caucasian (is it wrong to call them 'white girls'?) re-make characters of Charlie's Angels, and giving my other friend Lucy Liu. I got Bosley.

But none-the-less, if I have to be Mulan... It's not too bad, look at the arrow in my leg. I'm badass. Plus i'm thin, get in.

Now, nothing wrong there. I love people of all races and so on, but my 'other friend' was black, and i'm the asian one. See what we got th
ere? So what the FUCK girls, WTF. It's ok, I didn't like one of them... she surely didn't like me. Perhaps it was too much swearing from me, and too much blasphemy perhaps?

Nope. She don't like. It's ok, me and said other friend have found solace, in that we are Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker of Rush Hour. No-one will take that from us.

BUT, i'm so going off topic, my favorite is Alice. The eyes are scary as hell, but I love it. Oh, I found one who is scarier, Cinderella. Omg, if she comes running after me, I hope someone will tell my family and friends I love them.

If you've missed the link where this came from, here it is again.

Mr Jeffry Thomas Man *insert fist bump*

Change of name

Title says it all.

I changed the name from 'Art Music Fashion and Random-ness'. It's a fairly long name yeeeeesssss. And the new one, 'Midnight Snackings' was something I briefly named my LJ account, which is just me swearing a lot, nothing fancy, but its not.

Long story short, i've been wanting to change the name for a while, its better to change the name than start a new one all together. I mean, the layout has changed, why not the name while im at it?

Plus, if it all goes as it should have done, if you look at the times I've posted posts, it's not at a normal time... i.e, I post at 3-4am, yes, got a problem?

Thank you for reading and business will continue as usual.

New York, New York

I'm coming, bitches :D

Well, its totally not official, I haven't booked the ticket and i'm no-where close with the money to book it. But come march/april, i'll be booking it. Or booking it asap. Hopefully in the next month or so, i'll be booking it. Just to make it official.

Its hard to want to make it official when your travel buddy is being a queen by refusing to stay in Brooklyn or hostels.

I want somewhere cheap, preferably in a upper area, or not involving the two former mentioned factors.

We're, well I say 'We', it's me, because I'm the one who really wants to go. Its just unlikely i'll be able to go alone though.

Watching Sex and the City doesn't help the
dream of going there NOW. Oh, and a little film called 'New York, I love you' comes out in a little while. I'm sure that will come to cinemas/DVD before I know it and by then my head will have exploded with the urge to book my flight.

Still looking out for cheap flights though, so far it's £304 for a return and the date is just under a year away. Bastards. But then it could be because i'm booking it for a 'peak' season. But I can't go during desired times like jan because of uni. I've chosen september to go because I kinda want to go coincide with NY Fashion Week, but I wanted to go when its cold... it sucks.

If any New Yorkers are reading, or people who know of NY well, can you email me or something? I want to know how warm/cold/hot NYC is in mid/late september.

Oh, and I'm thinking maybe I should go C
alifornia so I can go see the Ellen Degeneres show. I love her show. I love Dory.

"Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."

Plus, maybe I can go pick up some cute jews with my 'cute accent'. Plus the crap theory that all guys love a asian girl, I should be like the fucking Queen Bee.

I'll be doing a wonderful post involving long johns next.

Just to get this rolling..

It's not easy wanting to blog, but having nothing to actually blog.

Well, there are millions of possibilities of subjects to blog, but I want to actually not make people want to die/fall asleep.

I'll post random listy posts until it gets back again. I miss blogging properly.

This is stolen from (Ice Cube Confidential - an old post, but fun post.)

List 6 unimportant things that make you happy:

1. Stationary
I sure do love it. Especially when its back to school

time or anytime you get those ideas that involves having to 'plan' thigs. 'Plans' mean writing down in lists on nice clean notebooks/paperpads. Pens. Oh. Love them. I prefer the fine liner type, 0.5mm. It's a good thin line, but not too thin or thick that everything looks messy and massive.

2. Food Porn.
It is especially enjoyed by those who like food. Food eaters and food voyeurs. My main two favorite blogs are The Girl Who Ate Everything and Serious Eats. One is a self run food writer/blogger who works for Serious Eats, the
other is Serious Eats and just amazing. It doesn't help having posts like these or
these (NAFV/V - Not appetizing for Vegetarians/Vegans). Yes, not all posts are from writers of S.E, they do do posts that are outside of S.E-land, but I love it all the same
. Its a shame i'm not a native of NY (Where Robyn of T.G.W.A.E is based, or even the US) because the things like the burger
s look sooo good.

3. Hollywood Jews.
Mainly these two guys, Seth Rogen and Andy Samberg. Funny and adorably cute. If I could have chosen to be brought up in a religion, it would be a flip between Buddhism and Judaism. Happy New Year my lovely Jews!

4. References to Jack and Karen, Will and Grace.
I aspire to be Karen. Pill popping alcoholic. With a Jack to my side, I'd be unbeatable. And totally fabulous.

And rumors, but rumors, nonetheless, that there may be a SPINOFF show with the two of them?!?!? Rumors and nothing official, I hope this is true. If so, it really should be debuting soon, like this autumn/fall.

I love them. Yes yes yes.

5. Alcohol.
I don't drink often, only when i'm out at parties or at clubs. I was lucky to not be brought around drink - my parents barely drink - so i've brought up used to not drinking, which has been a great positive. It means I can go out and not drink, I don't have to have one. But because I don't tend to, I like to when I can. I don't go too far though. Good to know i'm a good semi-drunk.

Drink of choice? A simple Vodka and coke. Or simple blue cocktails. Why the blue? Because it's blue. I don't like wine/beer or cider. Vodka based stuff is fine by me.

6. Harry Potter and Twilight.
Honest to blog, I do hear about the two being compared and it does bug me a little. The two are totally different. Although both based on books first before being made into films two 2+ directors, and both involving the supernatural of some kind.

One was well written with decent explanation for loopholes, and the other, one so great and crap explanations for the loopholes. But I do love both.

Although I prefer Robert to Taylor, i'm more of a Team Jacob.

Oh, and if anyone is into FanFic, let me know! Especially if you're a ff writer too!

- Oh, it seems I may have done something of this type of list before. Well, it'll be nice to see what things have changed since then!

Yes. Over.

It's probably jinxed now. Ooopsy.

I was always cautious not to go over my 100th post. The 'hiatus' post was the 100th. Dang. And we never got to 'celebrate'.

I barely got to celebrate my 20th too, but lets not talk about that anymore.

Lets post a pretty picture and distract everyone while I work on an oooold vintage draft of a old post that I saved from deleting-town.
(500) Days of Summer.

This was my desktop background at one point, it isn't anymore. But it's a great picture.

Hopefully, despite all the stuff that is going on in my life, i'll be seeing this on thursday *fingers crossed*

I'm back bitches.
