I know what I want.

I wish that I had a cupcake from Crave right about now.
(Or any delicious cupcake, really. Just not from Starbucks, I don't like those ones)

Love, Keiko.

Coachella, please.

I have always wanted to go to Coachella, ever since I discovered an advertisment for it back in 2003 (also the year that I started listening to music that was not Destiny's Child). I thinkevery year after I read the lineup I want to go even more than the previous year... it makes me feel sad.

This year I am going to Sasquatch though (and can't wait to hear the lineup...), which will be amazing... but is not my dream of hitting up Coachella.

Love, Keiko.

Perez Hilton Boy Band...

It's been a while since we've posted about Perez....

Is this really necessary? Ugh.

Love, Keiko.

My sister showed me this gem of a video today.

I haven't watched Jersey Shore, and have no intention of watching it... but I think this is amazing. Maybe just because I love Michael.

Love, Keiko.


Today was the second day back at school. I slept through my alarm, which means I slept through both of my classes for the day. Oops. Anyway, I've been really into this website for the past couple weeks:

Love, Keiko.

Next week.

Again, I think I am too boring to post my weekly ten. It would all just be Tegan and Sara songs - since in preparation for their concert (which was excellent) I created a playlist of my faves and listened to it on repeat all week. Next week, it'll be a good one.

Love, Keiko.

cudi kicks it.

another one of my faves of '09.
kid cudi.
just bringing it with some sweet songs.


We are sharks.

I saw Up In The Air a couple weeks back and figured I'd get around to doing a QUICK review of it...

Rating: B+

I really liked this movie, I thought the casting was amazing, and it was funny, and it was interesting, and it made you think a little. My thoughts on it are basically the same as Kaur's (HERE)... only I didn't love it, I just really liked it. The only thing that kept me from full on loving it was the end, the end doesn't fall in line with what I believe - but for the movie, I guess it was decent.

Oh, and Anna Kendrick (Bella's friend from Twilight...) is amazing, and hilarious. I was pretty suprised by her.

That's all.

Love, Keiko.

Hold onto me.

I'm hitting the Tegan & Sara concert tomorrow with my sister, and am getting prettyyyy stoked about it! In preparation I've been listening to all of my fave t+s songs, watching youtube videos of them, and looking at photos of them. Here are just a few (of MANY) that I love:

Love, Keiko.
