A Weird, Dreamy Dance

My long, lost friend Erin is coming for an east coast visit on this very eve (side note: I keep writing 'easy' coast every time I try to write 'east' coast lately...doh!).

I am so excited. I thought I would share my excitement for her return with a weird dance video that sums up my expectations for tonight.

Dark Flowers

Not the best quality video, but I'm glad to have stumbled across this beautiful song by Emily Kokal, nonetheless.

Also, I can't tell if it is some kind of effect, but it kinda sounds like Emily gets a little diplophonic at 1:36? I'm not sure but I hope she is taking care of her voice!

PS. you can hear Jenny say, "Oh shit giiiiiiiiiirl!" at the end, which is super cute.

Do You Believe In Rapture?

Thought this was pretty appropriate for the coming weekend:

Also, I was at that show : )

Here's another pretty one from Rather Ripped:

Dancin' Kim <3

PS. All day today I thought it was Wednesday...until just now I realized it was actually Thursday. I kinda feel like Jordan Catalano right now : (

Summer Mix 2011

Front Cover:

Track List:

Weeeee! I Sent them out to everyone who requested a Spring 2011 Mix, but if you didn't request and want me to send you one, let me know.

In other news, today will be spent writing cover letter....after cover letter...after cover letter. Ugh. LEAST favorite part about this whole job-search process (besides not hearing from any of the places I've applied thus far!).

Time to get crackin!

I Didn't Love You Yesterday, Now I Always Will

Here are some new musical faves that I've stumbled across during my unemployed/unstudent I mean, 'new grad' status (...dang, I need to git a job).


1. Coma Cinema:

I listened to this band's album last night (called, 'Stoned Alone'...haha!) whilst cleaning up after dinner and all I can say is that dishwashing has never been so fun.


2. Mermaids:

When I came across this particular band I got real excited because for a second I thought they might be Katie Sketch's rumored (and I think now dead) post-Organ project, which was titled, 'Mermaids' as well. For the first few seconds of the first song I heard I was a bit disappointed and a tad grumpy...until those sweet, sweet, surfy-garage-inspired guitar notes jangled on through my ears. I couldn't help tapping my foot along, and now I'm hooked. This band hails from Atlanta, GA. I also love finding a good video of an amazing live performance, and these guys definitely nailed it!

3. Purity Ring:

Purity Ring- Lofticries from David Dean Burkhart on Vimeo.

I am actually surprised by how much I really like this single from Purity Ring, as I normally don't really get down with this genre of music. But this is super sick and I'll prolly be cranking this while driving (GTA-IV style?) through the streets of Philly. Also, I am pretty sure a fan put this video together, but this old movie kinda reminds me of Kill Bill and there's sweet 70's dresses in it, (plus eye-patches!), so that's an added bonus.

PS. My funemployment status has resurrected my video-gaming tendencies and I blasted the dust off my XBOX 360 the other day...get ready for some GTA-IV references...(since I can't afford any new games!) : (

"Aw Christmas I beddr git outta here"

That's all for now, back to the job search....

Stella Mozgawa insane and I love her:

She also kills it on the drums, as witnessed below ('specially around the 1:15 mark...wait for it!):
