Count Em’ 1, 2…50? 2009

My music tastes can change a lot over the course of one year. One of my first posts on Yow Yow! was a countdown of my favorite 50 songs (in no order) for the year of 2008. It was difficult to make this post a second time because I had to really consider songs that I loved. The ones I have chosen are ones that I keep on repeat on my iTunes. They’re the ones that I play over and over again in my car while driving. They are on rotation as I’m getting ready in the morning. No matter what, I never find myself getting sick of them. They’re really great so I invite you to check them out.

Here are my favorite 50 songs of 2009:

1. John Mayer – Heartbreak Warfare

2. Paramore – Misguided Ghosts

3. New Heights – Fig Tree

4. Kaskade – Your Love is Black

5. Passion Pit – Sleepyhead

6. Adele – Right As Rain (live)

7. Lily Allen – I Could Say

8. Jack’s Mannequin – Annie, Use Your Telescope

9. Letters & Lights – Smile Bright

10. Lady Gaga – Summerboy

A Collection Part 10

Image heavy. But absolutely necessary. It’s the last “A Collection Part…” post of the year! If you haven’t learned by now why these are some of my favorite posts to make, then you haven’t been paying attention.

If you were to put all of these pictures into a book and read them as a story without words, what would it tell you? I feel like every collection reflects some sort of a pattern from start to finish.  This is what I feel or am drawn to right. now. The truth is, I go through hundreds of pictures. Hundreds. And I choose the ones that stand out to me at THAT moment. It’s this moment right here. If I were to go over the picture above maybe tomorrow, I might overlook it. I used to say that my blog was an outlet for me to sometimes express the way I’m feeling about something that I couldn’t directly say in person. Sometimes I use these collections to do the exact same thing.

What have you learned about me so far?

The answer lies beneath the cut.

Overused to the point of abuse

The turn of 2010 means that the unveiling of a new decade is upon us. Every year since the year 2000 we have been reading about the sexiest people of the year, best movies of the year, top albums etc etc.

However, when ten years go by, the lists get a little bit more ridiculous or …truthful. It’s okay to reminisce on the 25 most used words and phrases of the decade:

  1. Wardrobe malfunction
  2. Status update
  3. Tweeted (as in “I just tweeted about that”)
  4. “Cougar” to describe any attractive woman over the age of 35, who happens to be single, or any woman dating a man more than three years her junior.
  5. The “clever” blending of two words to create one era-appropriate word, like “Staycation,” “bromance,” “Metrosexual,” “Recessionista,” and “Brangelina.”

Girl tells the world that girls don’t need to go to college

The article was written in 2006. Want some more irony? She was in college when she wrote this article on the school’s newspaper.

Lynzee Stauss thought she knew what she was talking about when she argued that men should go to college to support their families, but that women should just marry rich. If this article had been written before the 1900’s, this might have been more believable. In 2006 though? Really? What world is she living in?

No thanks, I would not prefer to get my nails done everyday.
