The Rap Test

On Fridays, my team likes to do a little something that we call “a throwback to old school R&B” which involves playing a bunch of old school R&B hits from our childhood. We’ve done this for two weeks now, but I could see it becoming something that we do on the reg. Thanks to my brother, I was a pro at knowing all of the classics by the time I was age 5. I was pretty unusual I guess. My coworker Tenzing introduced me to a game on the internet the other day (or what we like to call a time waster) in which you pick which artist you know best – Drake or Kanye – and you are able to choose the title of the song based on the snippet that you hear. I passed level 1 and it started going downhill from there, but I urge you to try it out yourself. It’s a great way to pass the time and learn some great songs that you may or may not have spent much time with. Enjoy The Rap Test y’all!

Old Loves

I stumbled across this Tumblr the other day called “Old Loves” and for some reason found myself perusing it for nearly 20 minutes. There’s something really endearing about vintage photographs of old celebrity relationships. I know I have my favorites – Vanessa and Zac, Rachel and Ryan, Rachel and Adam! This list could go on forever. Sure, these were the couples of my time, but some couples date back even further before I was even born.

Oh memories.

Noisli

Screen Shot 2014-02-25 at 8.22.48 PM

Generally when I’m at work, I just prefer to listen to my Spotify, but I know so many people that prefer more natural sounds. If you’re seeking something like that, then Noisli might be the best option for you. Not only does it transition into very soothing and pretty colors, but it has an array of sounds that are fit for anyone’s liking including rain, thunder storms, waves, and even the type of sounds you might hear at a coffee shop.

Shoshi Games 2014

So whoever thought it was a good idea to pair Shoshanna with the Sochi Olympics was a creative genius. Personally, I haven’t watched a single event this year and I suppose we could blame that on work, Modern Family, and a few other things, but I feel like this Tumblr page tells me everything I need to know about the games. I’m kidding, it doesn’t. It just makes it slightly more entertaining to see our girl killin’ it as an athlete.

Favorites of 2013

Favorite Style Icon: Alexa Chung

This should really come as no surprise. Since Alexa Chung came into my life, I have always been a fan of her outfit choices. I noticed last year, I selected Taylor Swift, but really – Alexa blew her and everyone else out of the water in 2013. With her new book that we are dying to read and collections of hers popping up all over the place, we are looking forward to what she’ll be bringing to the table in 2014.

Runner up: Kiernan Shipka

What Does Home Mean To You?

For nearly five years, we’ve been covering projects on Yow Yow! and while we’ve seen a shortage in them recently, they are still some of my favorite posts to write about. Keep in mind that I got into the business of Yow Yow! because I wanted to share things with others. I wanted to talk about things that were happening outside of the Seattle bubble and in that time we’ve been able to work with The Buried Life, learned about Someone Once Told Me, The Glow, and many others. With the holidays so close,  this project of having people define what “home” means to them seems appropriate. Kim Thomas has traveled all over the U.S. to ask people this question and not only is she getting an interview for the answer, but photographs for support. Questions as general as this one are ones that anyone can answer and one that probably will give you a variety of answers. I’m excited to see the responses.

You can follow Kim’s project here.

My result seems completely off as it put me opposite of Washington, but what can you expect from a 10-question survey? According to my personality, I belong in Florida – yikes – who wants to be there, right? Curious about where your personality will match you? Take the survey by Time Magazine here.

How Many People Are In Space Right Now?

My coworker Tommy who is equally as obsessed with space as I am introduced me to a new website tonight at dinner. How Many People Are in Space Right Now not only provides you with the answer, but also gives details as to who these people are and how long they have been up there!

You better believe I bookmarked this website.

Filmillion

I was told that this website could guess the movie I was thinking of and it definitely attempts to after I answer 30 questions first. I was rooting for this time waster website, I really was. In my head I thought of “Garden State” and it gave me “Mrs. Doubtfire.” How wrong it was…

Readers, give it a shot and let me know if it can pull up the film you’re thinking of!

Thought Catalog Roundup

Because I’ve never said this before, the posts featured in Thought Catalog Roundup are not necessarily posts that I always agree with. They aren’t a reflection of my views, but sometimes they are pieces of writing that catch my interest or have sparked some controversy on the website itself that I thought would be important to share.
