I’m driving a minivan around San Francisco today, which is quite silly for someone who’s really better suited to a sub-compact (how I get myself into these things is beyond me…). So I’ll play something energizing today to give me the will to parallel park. Wish me luck… Loud Places by Jamie xx (featuring Romy) from the album In Colour, 2015.
This song always reminds me of the fabulous NYC apartment of Bridget Fonda’s character in the movie Single White Female. And since I was just in NYC christening a dear friend’s fabulous new digs, I thought it was apropos. Spiritual High by Moodswings and Chrissie Hynde from the album Moodfood, 1992.
I’m exploring Antwerp, Belgium today – a spot in the universe where I’ve never been before. Why does that feel so good? I find the adventure of it all totally inspiring (and the shopping? Well, you’ll have to wait for that…)! So today a bit of Belgian music is in order, I believe. Feeling Alive (radio edit) – the single – by Lasgo, 2013.
A bit of bouncy chill to provide a dash of escapism, which I’d really like right now. Okay, yes, it’s gets pretty repetitive (much like the daily grind) – which is sort of annoying (also much like the daily grind). Good reminder of the need to shake things up from time to time… Take Me Away, the single, by Zero 7, 2013.
I’m hopeful that everyone out there is still basking in glow of holiday happiness! Need a little boost to perpetuate the sensation? How about the world’s first 24-hour video? Catchy little tune with randoms dancing their hearts out sprinkled modestly with celebrity cameos. And you can skip around to watch different “times” if you don’t happen to have 24 continuous hours to spare.
Happy by Pharrell Williams from the motion picture soundtrack Despicable Me 2, 2013.
I warned you I’m in a mood, right? Today, I wanna take in stuff that’s irreverent, absurd and smart – in a hipster millennial kinda way. You know; have a giggle and allow myself the freedom – and luxury – to be silly. Very silly. This series of videos (the original and the retorts) hit the spot. Enjoy & have a GREAT weekend, everyone!
I needed something uplifting today, in a comforting, familiar kinda way. Takes me back to – well, I won’t say exactly – but to the day’s of stress-free work environments, where punching a clock meant you couldn’t take it with you. Off to NYC tomorrow where I hope to find a good dose of rejuvenation… Uncertain Smile by The The from the album Soul Mining, 2013. (It starts real, real quiet – give it a few seconds to get going, k?)
