Birds - Poor Moon

Ahh this isn't music related but I've been nominated for the Liebster Award by Sophie from Pretty Passions Fine Fashions! So thank you very much, Sophie!


Here's something to listen to while you're reading this/figuring out what to do.

  • You must share 11 things about yourself.
  • Answer the 11 questions that your tagger has given you.
  • Choose 11 other blogs for the nomination. Nominees must have under 200 followers on Google Friend Connect.
  • Leave 11 questions for your nominees.
  • Lastly, thank the person that nominated you and link back to their blog.

  • I hate coming up with answers to vague prompts like "share 11 things about yourself".
  • I like being completely anonymous on the internet (it gives me the opportunity to be completely honest!)
  • I have an impeccable bullshit-detector. Impeccable
  • I finished the entire 4 seasons of Arrested Development in two days.
  • I was sleep deprived during those two days.
  • Having nothing to do makes me so happy.
  • Summer is incredibly boring at the moment due to the fact that all my friends are elsewhere
  • I make most of my playlists during long, boring car rides. 
  • I have trouble finishing things. My sketchbook is filled with half-drawn shit.
  • I am a self-proclaimed music scavenger. I scavenge. 
  • None of the people I know in real life are aware of the fact that I have a blog


1. What's your favourite band?
I don't have a favorite band, I've got twenty. To choose a favorite band for me is a life-and-death decision that could take days to come to a conclusive decision. 

2. If you had a time machine, where is the first place that you would go?
Start of freshman year - because it's now too late to mass murder all those motherfuckers. I would want to go back to the 80s' and be Carrie Bradshaw, but coming back to the present day would just set me off my feet a little.

3. Do you have any posters on your bedroom walls? What are they of?
Ok obvi really typical but a Smiths one, a Breakfast Club one, an Art Institute of Chicago one, and an Arrested Development one.

4. Who are your heroes?
All the women out there in the real world fighting for justice. You're all my heroes.

5. Who's your favourite writer/author?
Charles Fucking Bukowski.

6. What's your favourite magazine?
I don't read magazines. 

7. Do you like Rookiemag? Do you read it regularly? Do you have a favourite Rookie post?
Rookiemag is my inspiration to do and say the right (or wrong) thing in our present day society. I check it at least three times a day to see if any Easter eggs have cracked. My favorite post will forever be this oneGoddammit it's helped me get by since 2011.

8. Which film makes you laugh the most?
Dazed and Confused!

9. What's the best concert you've ever been to?
This Bluejuice and Cairos one where it was underground in the city and and some kids were so high they started dancing crazily during the interval and eventually got the whole crowd to dance to the elevator music playing in the background. They had iPhone strobe lights and everything. It was hilarious.

10. If you could be in any TV series, what series would it be and why?
How I Met Your Mother - because I NEED to know where MacLaren's is.

The Morning After ft. Anna Paul - LUUUL

Lately I've been spending a tremendous amount of time outdoors instead of being cooked up inside my bedroom in 90 degree heat. You guessed it, "spending time outside" = tanning. Everyone favorite summer past time is to go outside and somewhat attempt to tan (for those who burn, I apologize [Jergens is always an option]). Most choose to drown themselves in an interesting book, but although I do love reading, for me, tanning ≠ reading. So this is for all you folk who'd rather lie down and listen to tunes than risk having a book-shaped tan line on your legs.  This playlist has got your share of well known/i-guess-not-that-well-known tracks, enjoy. A little less lo-fi, a little more beats. And YES, two Flume mixes were et necesse.

2. Jacuzzi Floozies - Little Smoke
3. Tiny Tortures - Flying Lotus
