Post image for tunesday: kings of leon

the kings of leon released a new album last week called come around sundown.  i have to be honest, i didn’t love their last album – as someone who really appreciated their older music, i felt like they were changing their sound just to appeal to a wider audience.  i have no problem with bands changing up their sound, i’m just not a fan of the new music. that being said, there are a couple of songs on the new album that give me hope that the old kings of leon are still in there somewhere. for example, the song “mary,” which they played at bonnaroo this year, is pretty good. unfortunately the playlist function i usually use isn’t working today so here is a video of them playing the song live.

Post image for the unbearable lightness of being – part four

“waking up was a sheer delight for him; he always showed a naïve and simple amazement at the discovery that he was back on earth; he was sincerely pleased. she, on the other hand, awoke with great reluctance, with a desire to stave off the day by keeping her eyes closed.”

“insofar as it is possible to divide people into categories, the surest criterion is the deep-seated desires that orient them to one or another lifelong activity.”


“ideas can save lives, too.”


“characters are not born like people, of woman; they are born of a situation, a sentence, a metaphor containing in a nutshell a basic human possibility that the author thinks no one else has discovered or said something essential about.”


“the characters in my novels are my own unrealized possibilities. that is why i am equally fond of them all and equally horrified by them.”


“When the heart speaks, the mind finds it indecent to object.”

Post image for vegan pumpkin spice cupcakes


1/2 cup vegan butter
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
egg replacer for 2 eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk* mixed with 1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cup pumpkin puree

*make vegan buttermilk by placing one tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice in a liquid measuring cup. add enough milk (soy or replacement milk of choice) to bring the liquid up to the one-cup line and let stand for 5 minutes.

preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

beat the butter and sugars on medium speed until fluffy (about 5 minutes.)  while that is mixing, sift the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, baking powder, ginger, cloves and pepper in a medium sized bowl.

add “eggs” to the butter and sugar and mix thoroughly.  alternate adding the flour and milk mixtures, beginning and ending with the flour. mix thoroughly again. now add in the pumpkin puree and mix until smooth.

bake 23-25 minutes. let cool completely and frost with your favorite buttercream frosting! makes approximately 22 cupcakes.

she is very thin... women with a bit more of realistic curves? i am a big fan and she is lovely, it fits her bone frame, but i would love to see curvy women on the pages of free people <3
