And I’m back.

13 Dec

I know, I am sorry. I know it’s been awhile. I’m sure all of you were like this.

To get this ol’ bird up and running, I’d thought I give you 5 songs you should be listening to right now. If you haven’t already been listening.

High You Are- What So Not (Branchez Remix)

As my friend Nick said in response to sending him this song and group name: sounds like some Yoda shit. But don’t let song and group name confuse you. Australian DJ’s, What So Not (Flume and Emoh Instead side project) are onto something.  Throw in New York City producer, Branchez and you have yourself what I like to call a ‘repeater’. Meaning it’s on repeat. (It’s kinda sad I had to break that one down for you.)

Good to You-The Avett Brothers

Magpie and the Dandelion is The Avett Brothers 8th recorded studio album and released this past October. I regret taking so long to dive into it because the whole damn album is great. However, this ballad has the perfect amount of piano and sweet melancholy that I just can’t shake.

Everybody Wants To Rule the World-Lorde

If you haven’t heard Lorde’s cover of Tears for Fear’s ‘Everybody Wants to Rule the World’ that means you either hate Katniss or simply have no taste in music. And both are equally disappointing. This song is proof that this little lady is going places as well as a constant reminder that my talent at the age of 17 was barely passing Pre-Cal.

Holding on For Life- Broken Bells

Once upon a time in 2009, music producer Brian Burton (aka Danger Mouse) and James Mercer, the lead dude from The Shins, got together, made a baby and named it Broken Bells. In 2010 Broken Bells released a pretty fantastic album but just more recently released an even more fantastic single. It’s got this weird, spooky Bee Gee’s vibe.

25 Bucks featuring Purity Ring- Danny Brown

Danny Brown is from Detroit and wears skinny jeans. A hip hop hipster, quite the contradiction and I like it.  Brown joined forces with Canadian electro pop group Purity Ring to make this little ditty. Another musical contradiction I’m on board with.

What does The Fox say?

6 Sep

It has come to my understanding that a few friends have complained about my lack of blogging and music blogging. I will be honest, I have been in bit of a dry spell with music.

However, I have found my way.

This is sure to be a chart topper.

My Twitter GOT Meltdown

4 Jun
photo-1024x768

I know the feeling Mama Stark. I know.

As a huge fan of the television show, Game of Thrones, I was upset I was unable to watch Sunday’s episode ‘Red Wedding’. However, I watched it last night and decided to Tweet my thoughts through out the show. I believe the Tweets below will show you exactly how I am coping with everything. For those who haven’t seen it yet, SPOLIER ALERT. You’ve been warned. Also if you haven’t watched it yet-then you are just stupid. 

After the tears dried up my collapse into depression began. 

Then I went to bed. And after staring blankly into the dark for hours I fell asleep. This morning: 

Now a moment of silence.

New York Reality

3 Jun 601921_10103232759890144_995036443_n

A follow up to my NYC visit wish list. 

1. Jump into a cab, grab the back of the driver’s seat and yell ‘follow that car and step on it!’

Cabbie’s do not like this. Nor their pictures being taken. 

2. Not buy tickets to a Broadway show and realize it was closed recently because of it’s ‘lackluster’ performance. Oops-dammit, just happened.

The closest we got to seeing a show was watching an 5 foot indian man in a club dance around like a bird. Arm flappin and all.

3. Find Ryan Gosling. Which I know will require me falling into oncoming traffic with a box of kittens and/or old ladies or starting fights with local gangstergangsta’s.

NYC seemed to have a lack in old ladies and kittens. I did see squirrels (or rats, same diff) and a basset hound. But pretty sure I saw Ryan Gosling’s best friends cousins mom.  

4. Watch someone piss in or near the subway.

Drank too much, never made it to the subway.

5.Reenact the ‘coke’ scene in GIRLS.

Karaoke in Korea Town with new friends including a gay guy until 7am. Close enough. 

6. Find a club with a really long line and cut. Because obviously, I’m on the list.

Telling the bouncer that you are your skinny friends publicists doesn’t work. 

7. See where Kevin McCallister escaped the cooky bandits in Central Park during Home Alone 2: Lost in New York City.

It rained. A lot. 

8.Eat a hotdog from a street vendor and NOT get sick.

Street vendors did not sell wine, therefore did not receive my business. 

9. Find and then piss off Amanda Bynes. Lets be honest-we are all hoping for a Britney Spears circa 2007 meltdown. And I want to be part of it.

Ugh. I ask for ONE thing from New York. ONE thing. 

10. Visit the Ghostbusters firehouse. Bill Murray, duh.

Fail. Sad face.

11. Find the famous restaurant in Seinfeld and order ‘the big salad‘.

Missed a reservation at one of Tom Collichos restaurants and got blacklisted. 

12. Buy a pair of Manolo Blahnik’s and drink cosmos with my three best friends: Miranda, Charlotte and the slutty one.

Bought a 14 dollar clutch from H&M and drank a bottle of cheap Ciante in Little Italy with slutty male waiters.

13. Not get robbed or knifed.

Success! I did get hunted down by a taco truck guy. He said I was pretty and then asked if I wanted to hang out in his windowless van. 

14. Refrain from singing New York, New York by Frank Sinatra.  Every three minutes.

New York locals roll their eyes when you are spinning in the street singing this. Whatevs. 

15. Bump into someone and say ‘hey watch it buddy’-just like in the movies.

My southern roots had me saying ‘omg, I’m so sorry’, ‘excuse me’, ‘oh no my fault’. 

Casting Call for The Bachelor

15 May 28265_10100306848465094_6995110_n

I was scrolling through my Facebook when I ran across this conversation from a long time ago. Erica has been the constant witty and awkward friend in my life. I know I can always count on her to use/exploit me for her own laughter and benefit. Hopefully I will be seeing this brat in July.

Erica: I need your stats yo.

Erica: Loser

Me: long walks on the beach and dogs.

Me: Define stats dummy.

Erica: Im looking.

Me: for what? Use complete sentences

Erica: Shut up.

Erica: weight?

Me: 99lbs.

Me: But what the hell are you asking me my weight for.

Erica: Do you have any children? what is your occupation title?

Erica: can I put “writer”?

Me: oh.my.god. you are not signing me up for the bachelor are you?

Erica: what?

Me: Erica

Erica: what?

Me: Damnit Erica.

Me: You dbag.

Erica: You should read this essay.

Me: You wrote me an essay?

Erica: Yeah.

Me: I want to read it.

Erica: No, I don’t feel like sharing.

Erica: I will however submit this photo

Me: Oh. I’m a shoe in.

A Texans 15 Expectations, Goals & New York Dreams

9 May

I am heading to New York City for the first time in my life. And as a Texas girl I obviously have my thoughts and ideas of what and how New York should be taken and experienced. Here are my 15 expectations, goals and dreams this weekend:

1. Jump into a cab, grab the back of the driver’s seat and yell ‘follow that car and step on it!’

2. Not buy tickets to a Broadway show and realize it was closed recently because of it’s ‘lackluster’ performance. Oops-dammit, just happened.

3. Find Ryan Gosling. Which I know will require me falling into oncoming traffic with a box of kittens and/or old ladies or starting fights with local gangster gangsta’s.

Daft Punk: Get Lucky

26 Apr

daft-punk-get-luckyHoly crap you guys.

So I was having a conversation with someone the other day about how I feel like there was nothing worth playing or even blogging about. Then bam!  Daft Punk and Pharrell Williams have finally broken my music dry spell.

First off, I don’t think Daft Punk needs any explanation or intro. It’s Daft Punk.  Then there is Pharrell.This guy can do no harm and I have been watching him kick ass behind the scenes in different industries, for years. He’s my favorite N.E.R.D.  (Pharrell fans will get that one, wink.)

This is a song that I just can’t stop dancing too. Awkwardly dancing. I’ll prove it. Listen to this song two times through. Once it’s over  look at your face in the mirror. You will see what I’m talking about. You get this oh yeah- lip-pursed-head-nod thing going.

 

 

 

 

 

Told ya.
