So somehow I’m less than a month away from the end of my first semester of grad school, which is insane and means that I have been mostly looking at a view like this:
which helps me write papers about the categorization systems in local supermarkets, but doesn’t lend itself to blog content. So here’s some music to tide you all over until I can finally blog again (I have a very long winter break coming up – and it’s almost awards season!! – so there should be actual posts coming soon.)
Aime – Pure Prairie League
This was playing before one of the sessions I attended at the Texas Book Festival and I had to try really hard not to sing along out loud in a theater full of strangers.
Mesmerise – Temples
Ladies Who Lunch – Elaine Stritch
So I’ve been on a Sondheim kick lately (or for most of my life but it’s been more pronounced in the last couple of weeks because I’m getting ready for the Into the Woods movie) and that, naturally, led me back to Ms. Stritch and rewatching the amazing documentary about her (that you should all watch on Netflix) because I want to be her when I grow up.
Heart Shaped Box – Nirvana
Oh you weren’t expecting the jump from Elaine Stritch to Nirvana? What can I say? I’m an eclectic mood today.
I Like to Keep Myself in Pain – Kelly Hogan
Because she needs to release a new album, because I think I’ve shared all the songs on her first one. (And listened to that record to death…)
Beware the Dog – The Griswolds
I Want It That Way – Charli XCX cover
I feel like if you’ve read this blog, at all, I don’t need to explain why this amazing.
Shake It Off – Kelly Clarkson cover
I love the way she calls this a ‘church song.’
The Devil is All Around – Shovels & Rope
I’m pretty sure that this was a recommendation from Lys…but it was a thousand years ago…
Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now – Jefferson Starship
I told you I was feeling eclectic…and this is mostly because I’m obsessed with the sing-a-long scene in The Skeleton Twins.
