Called It! The Carroll-Marks Edition

Because Audrey and I consider ourselves “tastemakers” in that we always (or, you know, sometimes) are behind a trend before it gets popular, we wanted to make a list of things we “called” before everyone else in the nation. We at first wanted to entitle this list “Suck It!” but then we realized we’re adult people with jobs that we’d probably like to keep and we shouldn’t go around telling everyone to “suck it.” Some of you deserve it, but we’re not going to name names. We’re ladies. So for a few hours yesterday we made a list of all the things we were up on before all of you. And here it is in its entirety. Also, we need a lot of validation.

Editor’s Note: In case you were wondering, Carroll-Marks is either the future currency of the country I’m going to create when I secede from the Union, or mine and Audrey’s future last name when we finally breakdown and have our same-sex wedding at City Hall because we’re in desperate need of Kitchen Aide appliances and knives from Williams-Sonoma. It’s patented so don’t try to steal it.

Can’t Handle the Pretty: Coming this Spring

So it’s become quite clear to me that I need to be on television. No one will hire me to do anything, including the job I already have, and while my youth is being wasted away in a cubicle I feel I’m doing a disservice to the universe by not letting you all share in my humor, wit and advice. Enter, Audrey Marks.

While we don’t exactly have the capabilities of broadcasting ourselves, we do have this blog, and it’s just as good. Audrey and I would like to bring to you a show so moving, so in-depth, so hard-hitting, you’d think it was on OWN. If we could only just figure out how to record our conversations, we’d be all set (it’s not easy, believe us – we tried all Friday night to get this done; Google+ hangout is not your friend).

For now you’ll just have to settle with our trailer. And no, I haven’t been having mini-marathons of The West Wing in my apartment. Why do you ask? Enjoy this glimpse into what we have to offer to you, world!

Call Me, Maybe?

Ok. So last week, Justin Bieber threw down this video for his pal Carly Rae Jepsen, and, yeah, I took it as a challenge (and basically as a way to sing and dance around my apartment with a purpose). I called everyone I knew to get this thing going. Some of them might not be speaking to me anymore. But there were the brave few who knew that this World Premiere First Ever NoMad Blog Music Video Production was going to be epic. And they were right. The conversation went something like this:

Me: I want to make this video so I need you to record yourself lip syncing to this song and then send it to me.
Loved One: Done.
