Did you feel a change in the atmosphere Tuesday? Like the world got a little better and colors were brighter and while life might still have been kicking your ass, at least it was wearing slippers instead of steel-toed boots? It’s on account of The Album. Mumford’s new one, DUH. They played some of thisContinue reading “Keep my eyes to serve, my hands to learn”
Full disclosure – when I give you a song, I don’t watch more than about 30 seconds of the music video. Mostly I just let it play in the background while I write about it. That is all. Unless it’s OK Go, because those have the tendency to be RI-DONK. This one is weird asContinue reading “Little Talks. Lil’ bitty ones.”
The last concert I attended was Katy Perry. And it was amazing. So, I had to follow it up with something equally as awesome, if not more. And I think I did. The other night I saw Mumford and Sons at the Waterfront. And it was ridiculous – and by ridiculous here I mean, ofContinue reading “Concert crush”
The Olympics are over, you all. We have to wait four more years. And don’t even say “Oh, but there’s winter games,” because those don’t even come close. Ice skating is not as fun as gymnastics to watch and while I’ll tune in for some skiing, it’s no swimming and diving.. And it’s because ofContinue reading “Now what do I do?”
fun. That’s the name of a band. And I love them. Period. This is my current favorite song of their’s, which means it’s played at least three times a day, on maximum volume in my car. Obsessed with it.
I’m a fan of sweet little love songs. Yes, I love the ballads and the hardcore Adele-type love stuff, but my favorite songs about the L-word are more of the Jason Mraz, “I’m Yours” type. Cutesy stuff and whatnot. With my generally tough exterior, who’d have guessed, right? Shh. So it’s actually because of JasonContinue reading “So sweet I got a toothache”
Sometimes I get really tired of all of the music on my iPhone. And then I’m greatfuil for Pandora and for the iPhone’s capabilities to let me listen to music through THAT rather than the songs I spent money on. Because that makes all the sense in the world. I don’t make mixed CDs anymore,Continue reading “Playlist fo da summah”
One day I’m going to make a playlist full of songs all about home. And send it to somebody that’s homesick. Or would that be counterproductive? Regardless, this song will be on it. No doubt.
Long before I discovered counseling, I had my own version of therapy. It was called “listen to this song because it’s about exactly what you’re going through so someone GETS you right now, it’s like they KNOW.” And then I turned 16 and wised up. Just kidding. Throughout my teenage years, then college to now,Continue reading “B.A. (Before Adele)”
Tuesday night I didn’t fall asleep until well after 2 a.m. And it wasn’t for lack of trying. I read before bed, I didn’t go anywhere near the computer after work, I watched 10 minutes of the Weather Channel. Nothing helped. And so I laid there. Staring at the ceiling and then the wall whileContinue reading “Two eight”
