Machine Friday


"Spectrum" by Florence and the Machine

This is probably one of my favorite videos of Florence (of course behind "Cosmic Love"), and it’s by far one of her most visually artistic/stunning ones. The bright lights and spectrums (lol) of color sort of mimic the beautiful harp cords and the cadence of her lyrics (it’s hard for me to explain precisely what I mean because I’m visualizing sound and trying to put it into words, but the music kind of…sparkles/twinkles? Whatever. #SynesthesiaProblems).

But the dance sequence perfectly compliments the high energy of this song. If you ever get the chance to see her live, I suggest you go. Her performances are as beautifully explosive and triumphant as her voice. 

It’s Friday the 13th! Spoopy!

At TopatoCo, we celebrate Friday the 13th the same way we celebrate any other day of existence on this pitiful planet. Sacrificing our money to people we vaguely trust!

We’ve chosen to highlight FOUR great products that embody the feeling of ire that we just love feeling!

1. "No One Can Hear You" print by drhastings of Dr. McNinja!

2. "I KNOW HOW I AM GOING TO DIE" shirt by the Machine of Death people!

3. "RE: Your Brains" teeshirt (a classic!) by Jonathan Coulton!

4. "Zombie Attack Messenger Bag" by softerworld!! 


Time Machine Video of the Week

The Cure - Friday I’m In Love (1992)

Very apt video for today, being valentines day and friday!!

I don’t care if Monday’s blue
Tuesday’s grey and Wednesday too
Thursday I don’t care about you
It’s Friday i’m in love

Monday you can fall apart
Tuesday Wednesday break my heart
thursday doesn’t even start
It’s Friday I’m in love

Saturday wait
And Sunday always comes too late
But Friday never hesitate…

I don’t care if Monday’s black
Tuesday Wednesday heart attack
Thursday never looking back
It’s Friday I’m in love

Monday you can hold your head
Tuesday Wednesday stay in bed
Or Thursday watch the walls instead
It’s Friday i’m in love

Saturday wait
And Sunday always comes too late
But Friday never hesitate…

Dressed up to the eyes
It’s a wonderful surprise
To see your shoes and your spirits rise
Throwing out your frown
And just smiling at the sound
And as sleek as a shriek
Spinning round and round
Always take a big bite
It’s such a gorgeous sight
To see you in the middle of the night
You can never get enough
Enough of this stuff
It’s Friday
I’m in love

Written by Robert Smith / Perry Bamonte / Simon Gallup / Porl Thompson / Boris Williams.

Trying to connect the dots
Don’t know what to tell my boss
Think the city towed my car
Chandeliers on the floor
Ripped my favorite party dress
Warrant’s out for my arrest
Think I need a ginger ale
That was such an epic fail

Pictures of last night
Ended up online
I’m screwed
Oh well
It’s a blacked out blur
But I’m pretty sure it ruled
