Happy Friday! We just did a little one-for-you-two-for-me Christmas shopping over at the flagship store in downtown Seattle, and we’re feeling good about it. (Okay, maybe also a little guilty. Uh. What budget?)
Which reminds us a golden oldie that always gets us moving and grooving. Girls, climb into the Wayback Machine with us and enjoy the smoothness that was, is, and always will be…the King of Pop.
Happy Friday, friends! Thanksgiving is just a few days away and everyone at BP. HQ is a-buzz with pre-holiday excitement. Also, food. Like, silly quantities of it. Pumpkin pie cheesecake, peanut butter cookies, brownies, cupcakes… For an office full of fashion ladies watching their figures, there’s a whole lotta eating going on. But it doesn’t matter, ’cause we’re gonna dance those calories away tonight and look good while we’re at it.
Speaking of Thanksgiving, today we’re thankful for the unnaturally talented Mr. Jack White and his backing band of beautiful ladies…
Happy Friday! Winter invaded Seattle all at once today, after weeks and weeks of pussyfooting around with pretty autumn leaves and dim golden sunlight. The weather forecast calls for sulky grey clouds and mean wet winds, possibly until May. And we suddenly remembered how it feels to go stir crazy and wild-eyed in the endless dark of the Pacific Northwest winter.
Happy Friday! Man, this week just flew by. Friday already? What? (Not that we’re complaining. One should NEVER complain about the miracle of Friday appearing unexpectedly.)
We genuinely love today’s video. The song is catchy, sure, but it’s really the video that’s the big deal. Here’s hoping it inspires you to have your own smiling, silly, just-say-yes dance party with your best friends (or anyone, really) this weekend.
Happy Friday, everyone! We’re playing today’s (not-very-dancey) song in honor of Lou Reed, who passed away this past Sunday at the grand old age of 71.
For those who don’t know, Reed was a founding member of the Velvet Underground, one of the most influential rock bands of all time. And he was no slouch as a solo act, either. He wrote “Walk on the Wild Side,” “Perfect Day,” “Sunday Morning,” and about a million other incredible songs that literally changed people’s lives.
Happy Halloween, fiends! To celebrate this, the spookiest holiday of the year, we’re going to be posting some of our favorite scary songs and videos throughout the day.
We’re kicking off with two versions of the classic goth anthem, “Bela Lugosi’s Dead,” originally recorded by Bauhaus in the late ’70s, the covered brilliantly by the clever cover band Nouvelle Vague 40 years later.
Let’s start with the cover version:
And now we’re going to get nerdy. Here, precious ghouls, is the original extended version—NINE GLORIOUS MINUTES of total goth drama. This song was used in the opening scene of a classic (and VERY fashionable) horror movie called, “The Hunger,” starring David Bowie and French hottie Catherine Deneuve as vampires, and a young (and smoking hot) Susan Sarandon as the innocent scientist being seduced into wanton, vampiric blood-lust.
Happy Friday! Y’all, it is definitely fall now. The leaves are crazybeautiful colors, we can see our breath when we walk outside in the morning, and the sunshine is that soft only-in-fall gold. Also: sweaters.
So let’s head into the weekend with a sweet, kinda yearny tune from some cute boys with guitars, shall we? All the better to snuggle with, my dear…
So this gnarly cold has been sweeping through BP. HQ like a Biblical plague, transforming us from high-functioning cute people into puffy-eyed, dim-witted zombies. Which is how the unthinkable happened last Friday and we FORGOT about the dance party.
Which means today you get a Monday dance party, a song to pump you up, a song to inspire you to totally own the coming week—LIKE A BOSS.
