Roxy Music - "Street Life"

This song was from 1973; not sure when the above live version was made (2001?). BTW they are showing the original English Life on Mars locally, and I'm digging it. It's great.

cotton and synthetic tights

Back to these cotton and nylon tights--I received them what felt like the day after I'd ordered them, from the beautiful

Pros: These tights now come in dark brown as well as black...yay!...and the cotton top is brilliantly executed (very comfortable). They seem quite durable, and the synthetic leg feels thinner and lighter than a regular cotton-blend leg would.

Cons: The toe seam is too thick. It bugged me after a while, worn with my boots. It might be okay with looser-fitting shoes, but I would prefer a less-durable toe with a smaller seam, if it came to that.

Overall: Should be useful. Joe Bob says check it out.

pangea organics body wash

Pangea Organics Body Wash review.

Hermmmmm...after reading several enthusiastic reviews of this product, I thought I'd give it a go. The price range is similar to that of The Body Shop.

First whiff: disappointment. I was expecting a sort of shower-gel-gasmic blast of ylang-ylang ecstasy (having gotten the Malagasy Ylang Ylang & Linden Flower potion). This smelled rather unisex: pleasant, nothing to write home about.

Using it though...after a while, it becomes oddly addictive. It just smells pure, as if the ingredients had been harvested and assembled that day. You need only a small amount to generate creamy lather, so it's quite economical as well.

Overall: Good stuff. I'm game to try the lavender/cardamom one later on.
