Composing a playlist + of monsters and men “Little Talks”

14 Jun

It was not my intent to use this space as a record of my idiosyncrasies, but sometimes they work themselves into my life no matter how I try to tame them… Nonetheless, here we go again!

I create playlists. Not just “… I think I’ll create a playlist for xyz occasion” playlist creation, but Playlists. I have playlists for every season of every year since 2004 (with the exception of winter 2007, when I was working full time, president of my Sunday school class, in grad school, working my internship, and training for my first marathon; although I do have a playlist for said marathon).have a playlist for (and its actually called this) “driving home when its dark and I’ve had a great day” and “Sunday songs (parts 1, 2, and 3). Its really quite fun (and often rather silly) to take a musical trip down memory lane.

Its time, though. Playlist summer 2012 here I come! For better or worse, however, I’ve been using my drive time lately to listen to the stimulating content of NPR (the only station I can tolerate people talking to me on). So… I’m a little more out of touch (musically) than I’m used to! Eek! Suggestions welcome! What are you putting on repeat? What do you think that people need to hear?

I’ve been enjoying this tune for the last couple of weeks, so I thought I’d pass it on. I hope that you get to enjoy the same pre-vid ad that I did – made me giggle. I think it was called “Make it with a fireman.” ūüôā

Summer Dreams

30 May

Admittedly, I am a bit late to the Polyvore scene, but I am having a great time playing around with it. On a flight of fancy, I found these quite lovely summer shoes – the things my dreams are made of. Simple, fun, feminine, and not altogether reasonable (for this girl’s budget, anyway)!
