Are you a mod or a rocker?

"I'm a mocker."

PLEASE tell me you've seen A Hard Day's Night (1964) with those fabulous Brits! I grew up on that movie (or just Beatles mania in general), and you'll often catch my little sister and me dropping references to the film. Many of our favorite quotes, including this post's title, are in the video seen above.

So why this sudden reference to the Beatles? Well...I just trimmed my bangs tonight, and, as always after a trim, I'm feeling very modish, which brings to mind the quote I just mentioned. My hair is looking more and more retro every day with my thick, straight-across bangs and long hair without layers. I'm a fan. I guess it's because of my obsession with 60s/70s fashion and my efforts to emulate those mods and rockers (and folkies) in whatever way I can--stylishly-speaking. It's no wonder that I can't go a day without dramatic black eyeliner and thick mascara.    

Now I just want to share a few other videos from the movie because I'm missing my little sister, and these remind me of her. Plus, the humorous conversation of the world's favorite "mockers" is worth a watch or two anyway. Better yet, rent the movie!

"They're [shirts] dead grotty." 

"Hey mister! Can we have our ball back?"

"I now declare this bridge open!"

You must check out the movie for yourself!


P.S. Yes, it's been ages since I last updated, but not without trying. Between my wonderful new job and unreliable Internet, I think I deserve a free pass for my epic fail in the New Year's resolutions department for blogging. However, my other goals for the year are going quite well. I still need to pick up more books in my spare time, but I'm challenging myself wherever possible, taking in my new city, and experimenting with some new fashion combos. I really wish I had a tripod here for my camera, as many of my outfits have DEFINITELY been blog-worthy. 


  1. loved loved loved the clips. I have Beatle Mania too. If I had a time machine, I would use it solely to go to one of their concerts. How amazing would that be? Anyway, loved this post, and I would encourage most Beatle...well, anything! :)

  2. I love this movie! Who could forget that funny tagline? Just this past month, my husband and I were on a Beatles movie kick actually haha. You should watch Paul McCartney Really is Dead. It's so entertaining. It makes you skeptical too. It's of course more about that Paul being dead conspiracy that has been going on for decades now.

  3. And oh yeah, speaking of tripods---are you looking for a tall one or a table top? I found one on Amazon for a table top, and I really like it! I already have a tall tripod, so this table top tripod you can set on rails on different angles even because it just holds on grabs the rail! Haha, it's like a creature. Wish they made one with a face!

    Anyway, here's a red one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fgp%2Fproduct%2FB001MKX68K%3Fie%3DUTF8%26seller%3DA3EE2V58NZ1T2P%26sn%3DRGB%2520Records&tag=alamod-20&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325

    They also have this in blue. I can send you the link for it.
