You guys, I have so few weekends left to myself until I’m traveling on the road for work so this weekend is one that I’m looking forward to having ALL TO MYSELF! Last night, we raged pretty hard for Manan’s birthday so for now I’m just using this as an excuse for me to be not capable of doing anything else Saturday/Sunday except for catching up on work and spending Q. time with Yow Yow! The other day, I had this craving to listen to all of my favorite early John Mayer albums. I’d forgotten just how good they were. #blessed that Kevin introduced me to JM so long ago when I was just 9 years old and listening to Inside Wants Out for the first time. It was so good that we’re going to do the same thing this weekend that we did earlier in the week and listen to it over and over again. I wish we could go back to getting music like this from him. Today, we’re sharing Room For Squares because it’s one of the few albums in which I love every single track. There are very few albums in the world that do that for me.
We definitely have shared the original song on Yow Yow! before, but this remix is just so good. I found it on Spotify’s Discover Weekly Playlist this morning and with how things have been going with our relationship, I really didn’t have high hopes. This, however, did not disappoint and I’ve already listened to it 3 times today. I’m also very close to saying that I prefer this over the original…maybe we just said it…!
I hope you guys will like this! Tonight’s weekend soundtrack is a very sweet throwback to my days in college and a nice memory that I like to think of as the “calm before my storm.” We’re having a moment now where we are feeling similar feelings as we reach the end of the summer and I prepare for a busy travel season and being on the road. It’s funny, when I was younger and thought that I was going to be working in music, when I referred to me being on the road in the future, I thought I would be on a tour. Instead when I say that same line now, I’m referring to a different kind of tour that I never really imagined for myself.
It’s interesting that I always planned my entire life out like it was a map and that each step was a destination point. The reality actually is that we’re taking so many bathroom stops along the way.
Happy listening y’all!
We’re having a Justin Bieber moment right now. Remember when this album first came out and we were all amazed at how good his songs were? Well, they’re still that good I guess.
I recently got into watching Stranger Things – still sitting pretty at Episode 4, but I’m obsessed with the kids on this show. Here are a couple of them trying to sing the theme song to the series. I wish I could adopt Dustin (left) he’s easily the best character on the show.
Good lord, remember when we thought Selena Gomez lip synching was bad? Heidi is like not even trying – at least be out of breath.
Some days, I get really tired of the music that I’m currently listening to. The good thing about making a playlist for every season is that you always have it and you can go back to it. Today, we’re revisiting our Fall ’11 – Winter ’12 playlist (back when we were still in college!) and I came across this gem right here that we’re reviving. I can’t believe I haven’t actually shared this before – missed opportunity for sure.
This is my favorite thing this morning so far. A supercut of the sounds Kanye West makes in his songs – I don’t even want to think about how long this took to make.
You guys, Outside Lands is tomorrow and I wasn’t even thinking about it. How far removed we have become in the last few years. Actually though I went to go see HONNE last weekend while I was in LA and it was like the first show that I’d been to in months since February or something. I’d forgotten how happy these used to make me, how expensive they were, and how much time I dedicated to shows every week and then every month.
This lineup looks great though! This is the first time I think I’m actually hearing about this festival, but Alina, The Internet, A$AP, Chance, Schoolboy – the gang’s all here!
It’s important to note that this music festival name was so hard for me to remember that when I searched it in Google right after to find an image of this lineup, I typed in “Camp Flag Gnog.” Nailed it.
It’s just one of those things where we’re not exactly sure what it is, but we still love it anyways. I’ve been waking up to this song for the last week and a half or so and only just added it to my Spotify playlists tonight. For the past few summers, my coworker and I are always trying to figure out what the song of the summer is going to be. I thought it was going to be “One Dance,” but this jam feels like a better fit maybe?
Which do we prefer… Tory or Drake?!
