heart of chambers

Beach House - Heart of Chambers

This video is beautiful. I felt compelled to capture some still images. I love all of Beach House's videos... Go here to watch them. Directed by Victoria's brother, Alistair Legrand.

oldies station

It's Thursday! And why not hear a song entitled 'Thursday' on a Thursday? It's Asobi Seksu.. Off of the great CD entitled 'Citrus'. This is not exactly new. 2006. But it's a first listen for me. And I just realized they remind me of a poppy Slowdive which means I feel like I died and went to heaven.

Asobi Seksu - Thursday

Another old school track I've been digging on is this Ms. Case track entitled "Margaret vs. Pauline." My sweet grandmother's name is Pauline. But everything is not easy for her, as this track claims.

ready for a funeral

There is immense pressure to change everything about myself and my life currently right now. Get out of this house, maybe out of the town.. And to get out of debt and find a job.

But all I can think about are kitchens. And bookcases. I just have a huge need for bookcases and even more clutter. I could just let things engulf me and hide under them forever.

Winter makes the worst of us sometimes. We have to dig deep to find the part of oneself that can remain motivated.

These songs are not of positivity. I haven't cracked into that piece of myself. I'm working toward it. Instead, this is a stuck in maple syrup on repeat backwards drowning in it. DOS computer games. Sigh.
