SANTA BONO-RA

Did I Show You Angels This?

Alright I’m Getting Blown Up

My dance friend sent this to me and LITERALLY I did NOT get this song UNTIL I saw this.

These people’s dancing LITERALLY blows my mind. I was speechless for like half a second (no really, longer than that). A. MAY. ZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BRILLLLLLLLIANT!

I got chills and tears from this!!!! SO GOOD!!!!!!!!!! VISUALS!!!!!!! THIS IS A VISUAL SONG. THE SONG EXISTS TO JUSTIFY THE VIDEO. I FUCKING LOVE. I DIDN’T really care about the song UNTIL THE VIDEO. BRILLLLLLLLIAAAANT.

Izzo!!!!!!! JAY Z is LIFE

all. i know.

dream big.

be UNREALISTIC.

It doesn’t get any better than Jay Z. Ever.

My sister was cracking up at me the other day because I told her that I basically only listen to musicians who have a high net worth.

It IS funny. But it’s fucking intelligent, too.

And I realized that without realizing it, I was being drawn only to people who represent having and living things I really admire and respect.

What kind of images are you piping into your head? I don’t do anything without it being deliberate.

I’m constantly aware of where my focus is, what I’m paying attention to, and what I’m allowing to be true into my experience. Now, it’s the only way I know how to live.

Rich Friends

This was on in my car when I got in.

White Reaper- Judy French

Song for the weekend, to start the rest of your life.

Happily ever after 🙂

The Thing I LOVE about this

and can’t get enough of and almost felt like I’d died and gone to heaven about this

is the art direction/art

BLOWN AWAY. I LOVE NANCY DREW. Anything like this I love and timing of release is just right, because of the fact that it’s such a fall/Halloween song. I love the color scheme, love the colors, love the visual artistry and design.

I’m excited for the real video to drop, too. But I’m so happy with the visuals of this one, it’s definitely my favorite lyric video I’ve ever seen. Because it’s so spot-on for me.

You know I’m a huge forever love of Kanye and Kim cause to me they’re the fucking Bonnie and Clyde of the whatever the fuck century we’re in. They’re unexpected and I totally underrated them when they first happened and it’s grown into a full-on-family-love for me.

I’m not commenting on any of the “drama” although you know on some level everyone fucking Loves. It. because they’re all laughing all the way to the bank over that shit!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s just ensnaring the audience in a good follow-along like made for TV script.

GOOD FOR THEM. I’d say it’s genius.

Alright You Know I Love happy songs

but the shit in this just fucking BLOWS MY MIND

I also love songs that are really passionate to where you turn them up, you get so high you feel like someone could take a machete to your arm at the elbow and you wouldn’t notice or even really care.

(Although I am rather fond of my limbs and phalanges.)

Believe it or not that’s a relatively common feeling for me.

I heard this song when I was flying in my car one night and like the next day the video came out. It’s super creative and I find the song itself to be pretty euphoric. FUCKING LOVE.

I tend to have as my favorite song, the one the artist says is their favorite off the album. And that’s without me having listened to any full album since probably Britney came out with that one in 2003. (Boom boom).

And this is no exception. These guys are sweet and true artists. It’s a cool video idea. Very committed.

Opiates inspire love songs!!!!!!!!!!!!! What else can I say.

I Keep Accidentally Dancing Like My Sister To This

You don’t wanna know.

Oh Fuck Yea

CATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love this movie. And this song. ❤

This Video Has Many Things I Adore

Shia

Dirt

dance routine

drama

a leotard

taped up hands

pull-ups in a cage

blood

AND

A GOOD MOTHA FUCKIN BEAT

PHISH!!!!!! Catchy Little Tune

I have the last minute and 18 seconds of this on repeat in my ear right now and it’s been going on for like 10 minutes already…

Born In NewOrlans Raised in NewOrlans

this is my sister’s ringtone

🙂

I’m Me :)

Love him.

You Make It REAAAAAUUUULLLLL MOTHA FUCKAAHHHHHH

I won’t tell you how it found this song; it may be my obsession with fan-made videos of collages of TV series on YouTube.

Or it may not.

<3

THANK YOUUUUU

I don’t mean to lump YOU in with ALL MY OTHER (asshole) readers. YOU ARE THE GOOD ONE. YOU. ONLY YOU!!!!

I need emojis here. HAHAHAHA

You know I’m totally joking. I really appreciate each and every one of you. AS CHEESEBALL as it sounds, it reallllllly really really is true that everything that is couldn’t be without your 100 percent unique place in it, and I appreciate it. Let that be known. Because I really do. And I can FEEL your energy coming through the universal wire lines to me. FOR REAL! U think I kid but I’m not shitting u for a second, FOO!

This song has a really good energy. I love these guys so much. Their energy in live shows is like NOTHING I have EVER experienced. It feels like universal love and human experience. They to me are like elevated musicians. I love them SO much.

This is the official video, which means there’s a bunch of shit before the actual song. This is the song that was playing in my podcast #6, on the radio. I love Arcade Fire. I haven’t actually seen this video but I will at some point, most likely.

I’m watching it now. Probably they’re going to ask me and Blue to be in their band someday soon. My triangle playing skills are ready.

Blue grows flowers from his excretion, so like, who wouldn’t want him in THEIR band?

Probably weddings and funerals will start hiring him, too.

Now HERE’S the ACTUAL SOONG

Arkells!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i thought this was artistic

IMG_0808

Wow WHEW

so it’s been 8 days since i last posted!!!!!!!

it feels like… it feels like…. it feels like a very long time to me

today we went a little way up north to look at a beautiful home. well, we actually just went up to look at the location of the home. it is on a beautiful lake and i really like the vibe of the area. it is beautiful in the summer.

the air up there smells nice and wet, because of the water, lake air. it feels fresh. i like the smell of the air very much.

i love this dog SO much. in the last eight days he has only gotten unbelievably better and unbelievably cute.

he’s sitting on the end of my bed now. today, all the neighbors were gone and i was writing and recording and he didn’t know what to do with himself. he’s so funny when Jenny our neighbor and the kids aren’t home– and the neighbors on the other side of their house are also away for the summer, so that’s a good chunk of his fan-base, well…. he sometimes gets a little bored. it’s like all his friends being away at summer camp. i wasn’t in the mood to hop on my skateboard with him because i was doing more mental things but maybe later tonight or tomorrow i will. that gets him really worked up 🙂

as i was writing that, jenny pulled in. we just went into her garden. now that i started writing, there’s so many things i want to share with you.

i saw dead and company a week ago yesterday, last tuesday, they were awesome and amazing but let me say— above all that, the day itself was just magic.

here’s a video of them playing last night at Citi Field– this one is for you, traveling-kind

man i love this song SO much (by the way i’m now reading your post on the tour, traveling-kind and i saw grilled cheese and balloons and hugs and all that other shit and i was like damn, i have to read this once i’m done writing this. it’s an absolutely fucking amazing world isn’t it?!?!?!?! unlike anything i have EVER ever ever ever seen.)

blue wanting to kill me for being so boring and writing and making recordings

IMG_0819

my friend shane made me a cd with this song on it with dead and company playing on, it sounds like kimmel, but anyway i love this song SO much and i love john mayer speaking of john i had a dream about him last night, here…

IMG_0820 (1)

IMG_0821

by the way when i said candy bar i meant like those things at the movies, a candy BAR like with skittles falling out of the clear plastic boxes and those shovels belonging to each one, on a curly rubber wire string. the thing was a mess. so was his hair.

by the way last night i was cleaning my car and i kept catching him…

every time i looked away he’d be on a mat.

but back to john mayer sleeping in an elevator consisting of candy

I Totally Forgot This Line

i just love this video so much

i had never seen anything like it before

You’re Welcome

Alright I’m Going Back

and my sister is getting this car which is really fucking sick i’ll have to show you pics i’m genuinely in love with it it was for her husband but anyway it reminds me of something i’ve seen from trav so that’s kind of on my mind right now, trav is one of my favorite guys and this is one of my all time ever favorite videos i find it so romantic and cool

so love

can’t wait to see this car i hope it lives up to all my expectations and more

so i’m listening to this right now

my parents went away one time to canada and came back, my dad came back with enema of the state for me because i really wanted it and my mom wasn’t going to let me have it because of the parental advisory label and i thought that was so fucking awesome, i really appreciated it. i loved that cd so much. never knew how much i’d love trav after that fact but he’s really fucking cool.

stylistically this is the fucking best music video ever

and as far as songs go,

it doesn’t GET any better than this

it gets equal

it doesn’t exceed this

trav is so fucking hot

Stumbled Upon This

Shadows Of The Night was the first song I ever remember hearing AND loving (but hearing) from my mom’s cassette tape collection (IN THIS VERY HOUSE). Anyway, I was blown away by Pat Benetar and her crazy cover art. Here I just found her and her husband 🙂 🙂 🙂 I LOVE “We Belong” that song never gets old. Plus they are adorable to watch.

Plus she’s just such a… she’s just so cool I want her voice!!!! I’m going to not only smoke ten packs of cigarettes per day… I’m going to put them out on my tonsils, and then maybe I’ll sound like her.

She’s so freaking cool in every way. I want to be her!!!!!!!

She’s just so cool!!!! She’s honestly so cool I’m like, it’s hard to kind of take it all in…

Song Of The Day, From My Sis

IF YOU WANT TO BE FREE, BE FREE

My sister started out my day today by telling me to listen to this song because it reminded her of me and this was a huge compliment coming from her (you know how I fan my sister) but really I had never heard this song and I loved it so maybe you will too. I think that it says everything true about everything 🙂 ❤

She sent this to me, or told me to listen to it, just as I was having this thing go through my head, about being free. Then I played this song, and, well, you know the rest 🙂 🙂 🙂

I love you guys!!!!! Give some people some hugs and some smiles and enjoy your night!!!!!!!!!!

Love: Ballet, The National, England, And You

This was not planned.

Re: funeral post. I said I was going to say what about the obituary made me cry (in a good way, I thought it was so lovely and meaningful and beyond words deep). Well, I was sitting in the tub reading it, on a whim, really, because I was only going on behalf of my dad, who was out of town. And I was reading this thing, and it was SO beautifully written. I have never read a more beautiful writing on someone in the paper. It seemed to me as if I knew the lady, from this writing. And secondly, the thing that really struck a chord in me is this; she was married to her husband for 65 years. Which unto itself is so beautiful and I love that so much. I want to be married for 65 years too. HAPPILY SO! And then I did the math and saw that she must have gotten married when she was 17. And that just made me… That put me over the edge. For some reason (probably I am PMSSING) that just hit me out of nowhere and just made me blubber like a button had been pressed.

I think that is the most beautiful thing, two people making that commitment and staying together and… seventeen years old! And five kids, which, I think is a pretty cool number, myself. If people do anything in life, to me, getting married and staying married is THE COOLEST thing that they can do. I just think it’s the coolest magic trick anyone can pull. Honestly. That’s my thing. I think that is the thing worth living for. When people can find a way of staying happily married until they die of old age, wow. I think that’s the essence of a life for me that is a dream.

I just think it’s so beautiful because I think some people really do know themselves so well when they are young. I always say this, and to me this is the most true, I think that life is the relationships that you have. And there are so many levels of success and external achievements, but I think that first and foremost, how much you love yourself and appreciate yourself and your relationship with yourself, is highest, and then after that, the relationships you have with other people. That is your truest wealth.

You can have all the other things, too, but those are only means or helpful ways to enjoy the love and light in your life that you already have.

And I’m always striving to that a little more every day in my own life. I’m certainly not perfect and I’m always doing the best that I can. And I have so much appreciation for people who model lasting happy marriage to me because… and you know what, it doesn’t matter what age you start. It’s about the quality of it NOW. So, I just wanted to say, that really blew me away, and it was an honor to attend this great lady’s visiting hours and this will sound very old-fashioned of me, and it is, you could tell it is a family who really loves each other and is so close and they have a sort of groundedness about them that I admire.

So that was a very beautiful thing and it truly was a beautiful day.

Reckless Breathless

No explaining how I came across this, only let me say… I’m going to start paying attention someone’s song suggestions more cause in this week he’s been two for two.

Love this.

Nobody in the comments that I read said Nirvana and Cobain but that’s exactly what I heard this whole entire song.

Sick song, nothing like anything I have ever heard, but if Kurt was a girl when he was in Nirvana and wrote all those songs, I feel like this is what it would have been.

Alright. I’m checking into some dreams right now but I’ll leave you with this.

Johnny Part II.

John agreed to play in my kitchen while I did an interpretive dance. I have the most talented people in my kitchen, you would never believe.

He wanted to stay off camera because he feels he is over-exposed in May and he wants to keep down a low-key status in June. I told him, “John, if you play live in my kitchen and I post this on my blog, your stats are going to be off the hook like you’ve never seen.” He said, “You know what, getting to guest-star on your blog is the highlight of my career, even if I’m not even seen on film. I have to take this opportunity when it comes because chances like this come around once every several hundred years.”

I’m paraphrasing what he said in order to be humble.

So, anyway, I acquiesced.

Hope you enjoy.

If you couldn’t already tell, this song is actually about choosing between chocolate cupcakes, and vanilla. I hinted at it here. It’s also about inclusion, unity, life, love, and sprinkles. (If you’ll notice, these were carefully chosen for their color scheme. They were not randomly picked off the counter and/or left over from Memorial Day, as you might have previously believed.)

And I purposefully waited to brush my teeth until after filming, because I wanted to give it an authentic feel. John told me when he wrote this song, he knew whoever performed it, had to have eaten a piece of cold pizza which was given to them as a bribe to go to funeral, not brush their teeth, drink a bunch of black coffee, and then perform.

So I said, “Okay. That sounds like my usual routine. I can do that.”

(If you look closely you can see the pizza foil in the background here.) (Pizza foils are how you know I’ve been on a bender.)

If you ever feel badly about yourself because you think I have too much talent and nobody should ever have as much dance, acting, musical, talent as me… Don’t feel bad. There are other lifetimes and you can always get reincarnated as me in your next lifetime. (There’s probably a waitlist but we’ve got forever, you know.)
