If you aren't familiar, you really need to check out the album Details by Frou Frou (a temporary pairing of the writer/vocalist Imogene Heap and the producer Guy Sigsworth, from 2002). Yes, I know, the band's name is fucking horrible and an immediate turn-off. But the music is oh so worth it.

Examples:

Frou Frou - Let Go headline track on the album; used in the soundtrack to Garden State.

Frou Frou - Breathe In the lilting music and the wry way she uses her voice in this one is captivating.

Frou Frou - It's Good To Be In Love a touch haunting and bittersweet; congratulating an ex on being newly in love rather than crowing about her own. Sort of the talking-to-your-ex perspective of the old 10cc song I'm Not In Love (since covered by Tori Amos and also by Olive, among many many others), if you remember that.

If it tells you anything, those are the first three tracks. LOVE THIS ALBUM.

I'm probably going to go around with 10cc's I'm Not In Love in my head all day.

I first heard that song as the Olive cover, and I actually prefer it that way.

Oh, YES. I love that album so much. Soooooo much. I am a big Imogen Heap fan, and found the Frou Frou stuff when I was trolling iTunes for more of her stuff.

ok, having a hair stylist is not what makes you gay.

Liking this music isn't what makes me gay either. But the tooth whitening system I just got from my dentist might.

Everything from the bag they put it in to the packaging for the trays and bleach tubes looks like it came from a fucking Estee Lauder store. Apparently men don't bleach their teeth?



Honestly the crappy cell phone pic does not even begin to show the whole story. You can't really see that the bag is translucent ivory white, you can't see that the writing on it is gold foil, you can't see the silver glitter inlaid into the hypos the bleach is in, the salmon color of the inlays in the box doesn't really show... yeah.
