I skipped the second month of this November Resolution already... so perhaps you can tell life has been a little busy around the home front. Sorry for no December playlist.
School started, Christmas happened, yim birdai happened, I was able to Skype with you for a bit on Christmas Eve but didn't ask too many questions for reasons you remember. Love you, brother.
Although still busy, yesterday was MLK Jr. Day and there was no school, so I thought I'd get down to my roots and search for new music again. I love it. Thanks for reminding me to do what I love in simple ways.
Anyway, my lips are chapped and I can't stop picking them because I'm a weird soul, I keep eating a lot of bread because I like bread, and I choose to use the oxford comma here because I can't at work.
(Editing at The Universe takes its toll on your desire to write, so perhaps I'll use as many commas as I can. Joking. Hi Steve Director of the Newsroom Guy.)
But I'm so happy. Family does that to ya.
And you've also inspired me to write more since you said you'd be reading my blog when you get home. Can't disappoint my brudderlady.
Love you. Here's some good stuff.
Mesita - Pheonix Album
Matching Lovers seems to also be a testament to this. I think Mesita is having a tough time with yim luv lyfe.
But those times make for good tunes, so he's workin' it.
Good for him.
But my favorite from this album is actually titled, "An Old Throw-away From 2011."
Simple, old-school, beautiful Mesita we grew to love simultaneously for similar reasons. The lyrics are relatable but personal.
I think you'll like it too.
Woodkid - Ghost Lights
Yeah. I'm not sure I need to convince you to press play on this one after Iron.
Patience & Prudence -Tonight You Belong To Me
Dallon and I danced to a cover of this as our first dance in Clovis... before we broke out and danced to Poison kind of like Turk in that one episode of Scrubs seen here:
But really, we love this song and I think that old school lovin' Morganzo will love it too. Perhaps after you see American Horror Story, too. We'll talk about dat later.
Kaya Curtis - Grand Central Station Was Blue
I don't like girl singers usually, but I like this song a lot. It has hints of Lana Del Ray without being overly annoying Lana Del Ray-ish.
Can you tell I don't like Lana Del Ray.
Her other songs get real Lana Del Ray ish though so just stick to dis juan.
K see ya, brother.
Love you. Thanks for your kind words.
