Pitchfork rates Bon Iver’s album as number one for 2011?!
How clutch is that.
….I fucking love Bon Iver.
p.s. I cringe when people pronounce this name wrong. It’s french for ‘good winter’ go look up the pronunciation. Bo-n Ee-vére
Matt & Kim - Daylight
So, I’m well into Christmas break, actually my birthday is this friday. My grades still haven’t come in :(. I’m halfway between giving a fuck and not. My holidays…well let’s just say I don’t enjoy family gatherings or more specifically any extended time period with my mother but I digress…
I posted Daylight by Matt & Kim even though its wicked old because I needed to post something more positive and this certainly fills the quotient. Winston Churchill said “I’m an optimist - there doesn’t seem to be much use being anything else.” I’m trying to be an optimist - that’s going to be my resolution for 2012. I mean, I should try - the worlds going to end anyway right?
Jønsi - Animal Arithmetic
It’s finals week (1/2). For some god forsaken reason Fordham has a final schedule that lasts a week and a half. I took both my philosophy finals today. I still have to finish my 20pg philosophy paper…that’ll get done…sometime tonight. I am SO ready for this semester to be over. I need a break…from everything.
I am sure that this week is going to be better than last week - mostly because I am willing it to be so. I’m hopeful - it’s getting closer and closer to Christmas and it’s getting me excited.
OH! So yesterday, Jonsi had this free little public event at Union Square and of course me being the geisha that I am missed it! My friend Eric went and met Jonsi…ugh SO JELLY. I love Jonsi. His music is so beautiful it’s nearly tragic. Every time I listen to him I wanna laugh and cry at the same time. There’s just something about his music that is so…magical.
SO, in honor of Jonsi’s music being the soundtrack to the new movie coming out ‘We Bought a Zoo’ I’m posting one of my favorite Jonsi songs - Animal Arithmetic. Everything he puts out is fantastic but this particular song has a soft spot in my heart. It just makes me…excited for life. Haha, enjoy.
This City feat. Lupe Fiasco - Patrick Stump (Breathe Electric Remix)
I spent the last day and a half in my room isolating myself. Kind of feeling sorry for myself just kind of hating life. And I allowed myself to have that time. It’s kind of justified.
I can take my life in two different ways right now. I can continue being sad and isolating myself. But that’s so not me. I’m not a sad, pathetic girl who’s just going to cry about how everything sucks. I live in New York City for christs sake and I STILL fucking love this city. This week was FUCKED - some fucked up shit happened and I can’t change that. But I’m moving on with my life. I’m not going to stay home scared that something bad is going to happen. I’m going to put myself back up on the horse and try to enjoy life.
That’s why, I’m going to go out looking like fucking sex in a dress. I’m going to some party in the city. I don’t know what’ll happen, but I’m going to be hopeful, I’m going to make the best of my life or this city.
This song, My City is an ode to NYC. It’s a fantastic dance song. Take a listen while you get ready to go out tonight and make the best of your life because it really is fleeting.
heartsblogcars asked: I don't know you at all, I have no idea what's going on , but whatever this is, you can get through it. I figured from what I've read, you could use some (poorly written) words of encouragement from a stranger on tumblr. It's not much, but it might help. You're awesome, so keep on being awesome.
Aww thank you! You’re sweet!
Kid Cudi - Up Up & Away
“Cause in the end they’ll judge me anyway so WHATEVER.”
God, words can’t describe how much I love Cudi. His music just speaks to me. This song has been all I want to listen to lately. It’s pretty friggin awesome.
I’ve had a pretty horrific week - things just went from bad to worse to horrific. I deleted my facebook so I wouldn’t have to deal with people talking to me about everything. I’ve had a shit week yeah, and some really fucked up things have happened to me but I’m a lot stronger than all that. I really hate being pitied.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad I have so many people who care about me. I appreciate their concern but…everything, it’s all too much for me right now.
I guess I just need time. I’ll be okay though.
Sneakin’ Out the Hospital - Beastie Boys
Maybe I’m growing up, maybe I’m growing apathetic I’m not sure yet. This week’s (semester) been fucked for me. I tried to do too much…I took too many credits. I’m excited for next semester. I have a much better schedule…this one…it needs to end. I don’t think I’ve ever wanted/needed a semester to end so badly before. I’m not sure what exactly is going on with me…I don’t think I’ve ever skipped so many classes before. It’s pretty fucking awful. I think this Thanksgiving break is necessary. I need to “me” time. Just some time to reconnect with myself and get my priorities in order. I miss the days where I could be carefree about most of my life…carefree doesn’t exist in New York City.
This song, by the Beastie Boys is off the album Hello Nasty. It’s wicked old. I’ve just recently gotten backen into them. It seems like/is an interlude song for the album but just so necessary. It came on randomly while I was writing this (I was originally going to upload something else.) and I just thought “this is just so much more relevant.” So, listen and accept it for what it is - a good fucking song.
Again, I’m sorry, I don’t feel like putting up the dl link, message me for it.
sometimes i think about doing my homework.
that’s it, that’s as far as we get
Bon Iver - Skinny Love
I never know what(who) I really want. I never know how to read people - at least when it comes to people I’m interested in. I have this issue, with two people, who I equally like. But, on both sides, I’m not so sure if I really should. They both have respectively their pros and cons. I don’t know what I’m doing with my life gahhh I hate it.
I hate men. I hate relationships. I hate hook ups. I hate my indecision/insecurities. I hate sounding like an 8th grade boy crazy school girl.
I don’t feel like/have the time to put up a download link for this - message me for it. It’s wicked old but so friggin’ cute. Bon Iver is such an underrated band - they really need more recognition because they’re so god damn fantastic. It’s off their first album Emma; that entire album is just fantastic and their second album is just as good. I highly suggest looking into them.
Occupy Wall Street.
You know what really pisses me off? - Quite a few things actually but I’ll focus my annoyance on one topic today - the media’s coverage of Occupy Wall Street.
- Ann Coulter calls them “Demonic Liberal Mobs”
- Tea Partiers calls them “Law-Breaking Anarchists who want tear America down”
- That “accidental” internet black out of the Occupation
- CNN refusing to covering it, along with other mainstream American outlets
People are angry, people feel slighted/taken advantage of/frustrated/angry. 25 million Americans are unemployed yet profits of major corporation CEO’s are record breaking. When you push and push and push people eventually they’re going to push back. The onslaught of negative media against these protests are just ridiculous and vastly ignorant.
I saw this article when I googled Occupy Wall Street:
In contrast, those occupying Wall Street want less of what made America great — and more of what is damaging America. They want a bigger, more powerful government to come in and take care of them, redistributing the wealth of those who innovate and create something, so they don’t have to work like the rest of us who pay their bills.

Uhmmm what? Yes, we DO want to redistribute the wealth because its not fair that there are people starving to death while people are flying on corporate jets. Yes, we do want more government regulation so corporations will stop taking advantage of every day people. And I can only speak for myself and the people I know supporting/attending the protest but, we work and pay our bills too.
- We are not a group of uneducated liberal demonic protesters like Ann Coulter tries to make us out to be. In fact, we’re quite educated - we see a fallacy in the American government and we want to do something about it.
- We are not law breaking Anarchists who want to tear America down - Well wait, in that same article we’re called anarchists and then he says we want more government regulation? Who’s the hypocrite here?
God! I just so sick of this bull shit!
p.s. The song I’m posting - I posted it before a long while back is an auto tuned version on a Martin Luther King Jr. song its pretty decent. The video is on youtube - look it up.
