Friday at the lab aka, work-from-home-day aka, The day in which I spend most of the morning making a playlist to last me through the doldrums of no one being around.

Broken Social Scene– Texico Bitches

I love starting my morning to this. In fact, I even turned it on to wake Lena up today. It didn’t work.

Haha, funny story, I thought no one was here, but apparently The Boss is, and he walked over just as I was watching this video. It’s kind of a weird video. There are more or less people wrestling nakedly in chocolate syrup.

IN OTHER NEWS, I recommend for listening needs. It’s like youtube but for music. People upload songs and you can search for them and listen to them streaming for free, minus the videos.

The other song that gets me going for the day, Matt and Kim – Daylight. Watch and Listen here.

And for giggles, this is the version that Alex made me watch.

Because like, he knows someone? or someone knows someone? There’s some connection and Alex and I had this really funny conversation where I brought something up from like 3 months ago and Alex reiterated word for word (is that redundant? does reiterating imply word for word?) my argument/issue, and I was just like, “Whoa, you DO listen to me” and I listen to him I swear but sometimes he rambles so I don’t quite remember exactly where this came from. Agh! I’m sorry! I guess I’m buying the popcorn when we go to the movies tonight. I hope that makes up for it.


Music Fridays

Hey y’all. I’m gonna mix it up on this here Friday and share with you some music I’ve been listening to at work and at home this past week.

Firstly, the anthem of my mornings. Best Coast- Angsty

It’s just so angsty!

For more reals though, because I actually can’t listen to more than one Best Coast song at a time, they all sound like that and it makes me feel like I’m in high school and I just start hating the world. Which is really good sometimes, don’t get me wrong. I love the lo-fi simple angst of it all, but not for all day. Next up, Diamond Rings

Okay so Diamond Rings, is apparently “the solo project of John O’Regan, a musician from Toronto who wrote his latest album during a lengthy hospital stay while being treated for Crohn’s disease” (via dooce who is an all around badass, and where I discovered this from.) And the entire EP, Special Affections is amazing…Uhhh which I’ve only listened to streaming online but I actually am planning on buying it because I seriously love it that much.

Okay, I’m giving you two because I love both of these songs equally.

Lastly, this song that I’ve been hearing on the radio and have absolutely loved, then finally found out who it was (again, via dooce) and have been listening to it all week.

Alex Winston- Sister Wife

Hope you enjoy them!

Also, Happy Memorial Day weekend!
