I hate when tracks on an album don't blend together.  When each song has a connecting theme or a common thread (lyrically or musically), they are so much more cohesive.  I like the element of story telling; albums without a story always sound incomplete and erratic to me.

Although my outfit is somewhat erratic, it does mirror certain elements throughout.  The tops are clashing patterns, but the button down aspect gives the outfit a focal point.  The bottom half is neutral, and the black is reflected back to the top with the Ray Bans.  The hat wasn't part of any plan - it worked its way into the outfit when my hair decided to not cooperate this morning.  Oh well, it did a nice job of keeping the grunge/tomboy/hipster/slouchy theme going.
