Remember that October the 20th is a day of remembrance for all of the gays who committed suicide, and to wear purple if you're choosing to take part. Stephanie currently doesn't have computer access and is feeling a bit under the weather, so i'm posting this in her stead. -Scott

Tune Tuesday

It's time for Tune Tuesday again and the featured band this time is "Future Islands". They formed back in 2006 when they met in college. They are North Carolina based but are currently touring with other bands! I love the toss up of light/high sounds mixed with his deep gruff voice. You can listen to their song "Tin Man" below, ENJOY!

I found "TasteKid" while trying to find a movie recommender. There is a book recommender I use now and again when I get in the mood for a certain genre. I was hoping they would have a movie version but I couldn't find it, and so that's how I found TasteKid. It will recommend movies, books, music, shows and authors. I'll be honest only about half of the recommendations are okay the rest are way out there. I typed in The Giver and it popped out Holes. Great books in their own ways but not what I would call similar.

Your favorite sweet treat?

Number 9 (check)

I've been thinking about this one for a long time. Love is a complex emotion, one that even the smartest of us out there has a hard time explaining. I realize that I'm not always going to be happy with my body, but for the most part we are thick as thieves. We've grown and shrunk together and will continue to. I have beauty marks, scars, stretch marks, spider veins, and rough feet. But I also have long eye lashes, small hands, a who-nose as my friends call it, and i'm relatively comfy to lay on as I've been told. I also realized that my relationship with my body is a give and take arrangement. If I show it love and care, it will give it back to me. But if I don't take care of my body then things will get nasty! I love you body, you've been with me forever and will until the end, let's make it special!

We don't have to be friends....just shut up.

I'm sure most of you have seen or heard of the newest popularity project "Stop Bullying". I hope none of you think I don't take the situation that prompted this seriously, I do and it angers me greatly about what happened. But I keep reading the comments and they are completely hypocritical.

"They needed god's teaching" "Southerners and Midwesterners are the worst" "It's the parents fault"

To say that they did it because they weren't religious is the same as them mocking the girl for her accent. They're making a big deal out of someones social, religious, or physical differences. You don't have to be friends with someone you don't like but keep what ever crap you think to your self. Don't rub it in their face, hurt, or humiliate them.

I really wish we could live in a world were people could accept others. It's like in debating you don't have the same views as me but I accept that. I'm not going to hit you with a cafeteria tray just because you don't pronounce coffee the same way I do.


Fall Inspired Picks

P.s. I am very much a penny pincher, there is an item in one of these collections *cough scarf* that costs eighty something dollars. I would never pay that, I would make it myself first.

The other day I had the up most pleasure to go picnicking with my boyfriend. We sat on a bench by the river while watching boats float by. It was fairly sweet, dare I say almost romantic....until the creepy guy came. Let's just say he was a people watcher, but we were the only people there so he just watch us. yeah.... *cough* The cake was good though butter cream....yum!

Movie Review: No one knows about Persian cats

Bahman Ghobadi directed a shocking if not inspirational film. The movie follows Ashkan and Negar as they secretly try to obtain passports and assemble the rest of their band before they flee to London. Secular, non-religious, music is banned in Iran. There is the constant unseen danger from being caught. These people who love and embrace music have to hide for fear of imprisonment. Through the film you will see real bands from metal, jazz, indie, to Rap play and amaze you! I hope that if you see this film you will watch with the knowledge that this is a very real situation. The movie is a work of slight fiction, but the story it tells is very real...

Just ask!

Hay dears, a little while ago you voted for what you would want to see more of on MCB, vlogging or v-posts was the winner. The last time I did a v-post I said you could ask me any question and I would answer it. I'm doing that again! Ask a question and I will answer it; whether it's a heated debate topic, simple preference, or opinion question I'll answer it. I will vlog about other things in the future, this is just helping me get used to it.

You post your question below in the comment section or you can go to MCB's formspring page and ask anonymously.

Tune Tuesday

Mates of State is an indie band starring the married couple Kori and Jason. There is a good bit of electro add-ins but they use so many different instruments from the piano to the glockenspiel. They started back around 1997 in Kansas and are still playing today. My favorite song so far is "HA HA" and you can watch it below, ENJOY!

P.s. I now have a twitter page for Magical Chip Bag, basically i'll post the things you usually don't get to see, the songs that didn't get to be Tune Tuesday but I liked and random videos!

This isn't how you played with dolls

Marwencol is an indie documentary about Mark Hogancamp, a man who was beaten outside a bar one night and suffered brain damage. He invented his own world of war, love, and action. Using dolls and a camera he captures scenes that tell a story, one that might bring him out of the safety he so clings to...

20. figure out what I want to do with my life. I won't go into huge detail because that might bore you dears to death and I wouldn't want that! I've been thinking you don't have to do just one thing in your life, and with that I decided in the early part of my life i'll pursue photography and then later in life I'll open a book store! I had a dream one night that I ran a book store and I woke up so giddy it would have put school girls to shame.
