Friday Playlist: Hanging Out With Enid Coleslaw

Music that our beloved malcontent would lurve.

Yesterday, I saw Enid Coleslaw stalking a couple in the grocery store and scribbling in her notebook. Apparently she’s stuck in town for the summer, because she has to take an art class for fuck-ups, but after that she’s free. I wonder what she’ll do after high school? Probably just torture Josh until he dies. I don’t know why, but I have this feeling that one day she’ll sort of just…disappear.

    I LOVED GHOST WORLD. I really need to get around to watching the film, though. Great playlist! Enid (wherever she may be) would appreciate this.

    • katrinaexplainsitall July 14th, 2012 1:03 AM

      And in an amazing turn of events, Ghost World actually just started playing on Sundance and I’m now going to spend the remainder of my night watching it :)

  • Phoebe July 13th, 2012 11:28 PM

    I’m very sorry if you are not able to get this playlist to work. We are having trouble with the site that hosts it, and will try and fix as soon as possible!

    I just wrote down Ghost World as a must see for this weekend, not two hours ago.. ROOKIE YOU ARE TOO N’SYNC WIT MEEEEE

  • Helenus July 14th, 2012 12:26 AM

    I thought Devil Got My Woman was by Skip James..?

  • burn-your-flesh July 14th, 2012 12:43 AM

    Oooh this is so weird Ghost World just arrived in the mail and I watched it for the first time today.

  • PZ July 14th, 2012 12:56 AM

    i had forgotten how much i love ghost world espeeecially that bollywood number

  • Hazel July 14th, 2012 1:02 AM

    Sorry guys! An iTunes bug put the wrong artists for some tracks. Jaan Pehechaan Ho is by Mohammed Rafi and Devil Got My Woman is by Skip James. Whoops!

  • tove July 14th, 2012 2:18 AM

    I have to admit, I was waiting for this one.

  • EvaLavender July 14th, 2012 3:45 AM

    Ghost World rocks life! I love all these songs

  • mayaautumn July 14th, 2012 4:09 AM

    i am lurving this whole playlist.

  • Pearl July 14th, 2012 6:29 AM

    I watched Ghost World a couple of weeks ago & it was amazing! This playlist is like the musical version of it. Awesome! I love that you’ve used Mohd. Rafi’s Jaan Pehchaan Ho which brings back a lot of memories. R.I.P. Rafi Saab.

    Seeing as GW and Paris, Texas are top shelf in my film preference library, let’s make a “Hanging Out With Travis” playlist for next month. I’m expecting a lot of Wim Wenders.

    • la fee clochette July 14th, 2012 12:23 PM

      YES to a Paris, TX and/or Wim Wenders playlist! then Jim Jarmusch..

      • caro nation July 15th, 2012 2:43 PM

        HELL YEAH, fellow pretentious cinephile, YEAH.

  • purrr July 14th, 2012 8:57 AM

    I bet 5 bucks rebel girl has already been in at least three other mixtapes by you guys. I’ve just heard it so many times GAWD

  • Cosmo Beatrix July 14th, 2012 10:16 AM

    fuck i love this… IT IS walking around ghost world with Enid Coleslaw

  • boredeverything July 14th, 2012 11:35 AM

    enid will totally end up with josh… dah.

    bikini kill is fiercely appropriate, but i fear there is a desperate lack of indian musicals, and blues sides.

  • nickz July 14th, 2012 2:10 PM

    Enid would definitely agree with this playlist.I like how you included that Indian song she was listening to at the beginning of the film;)

  • natalie July 14th, 2012 7:40 PM

    This is the most amazing playlist my ears have ever heard. Sighsighsigh Enid will never stop being my rebel girl.

  • Jessie July 15th, 2012 12:55 PM

    The Jam!!!!I love The Jam!!!And The Buzzcocks!All is well.

  • July 15th, 2012 2:59 PM

    Enid would approve :)

  • julalondon July 15th, 2012 3:12 PM

    Buzzcocks – Ever fallen in Love is MY TUNE I SO SO SO SO LOVE THAT SONG!!!!!!!!=)

  • havefun July 15th, 2012 3:59 PM

    Once I watched this movie about these guys who worked in a parking lot. A guy from YLT was in it.

  • Lascelles July 15th, 2012 4:07 PM


    Why Buzzcocks’ Fallin in Love over What Do I Get, which was in the film? What Do I’s lyrics seems to fit better.

    I just want a lover like any other
    What do I get
    I only want a friend who will stay to the end
    What do I get

    Oh and I always imagine she grows up to the Sophie Crumb :D It’s her drawings. So the bus goes to Paris.

  • canadaaustin July 17th, 2012 3:46 PM

  • Smriti July 18th, 2012 1:33 AM

    Although I don’t fall into the category of being a teen but I oh-so-totally love reading all that Rookie has to offer and see all the photographs that have a certain thing going on with them. xoxo
