i guess everywhere else it’s been summer now for months, but here it’s only just starting. home is a special case. it’s gone from a 9 degree day in june to a 24 degree day in july with just a few days in between. i love summers here even though they’re exceptionally short. it has happened really fast. all of a sudden it smells, sounds, feels and looks just like summer. cut off jean shorts, freckles, trees and flowers, sleeping in my undies with the window open, frozen lemonades, blue jumbo freezies and beer. i want to spend as much time outside as i possibly can – even if i only wander as far as my backyard. All things are better outside. that’s kind of a broad statement but i’ll stick by it. Charlie has been meowing at our windows and slumping in the shadowy upstairs hallway whenever he isn’t trying to escape. i hope he won’t be too unhappy as our house gets even warmer. right now i’m enjoying living in the downstairs bedroom. last July i remember being unbearably warm when i lived upstairs. it’s a nice change.
anyway, onwards

Sometimes there’s a song that I’ve heard a thousand times and then one day I finally give it my complete attention and realize how amazing it is. I always wonder how dumb I could be in order to not realize it to begin with.

I think it’s because it’s really soft at the beginning and you can’t really hear what he’s saying. I put my volume up as loud as it could go and listened to the lyrics and my heart melted a little bit.
You all should do the same.

veering off your greedy heart
i cant understand your pain anymore
we can get a lawyer and move on

we can get a lawyer if you want
i can understand your pain, but i wont
if we cant get along we cant be in love

end of the world in the middle of nowhere
nothing/something happens anywhere/everywhere

your black irish smile begins
up the soft snow of your skin
as the memory sinks in

i’d give anything to start again

i cant stop remembering

the past

My sister has to do this project for her textiles course that involves using old pictures. if anyone knows me at all, you perhaps know about my love for the past. the present is cool and the future is unpredictable, but there is something about the past that i love very much. anything old, vintage, not from my own lifetime. As amy was going through my mom’s old photographs, i swiped a few for myself and wanted to share them because i think they’re pretty amazing.

this is my uncle and my mom and their aunt’s dog

this is my mom and my grandfather. looks like she was going to girl guide camp and that my grandfather is pretty thrilled about it. i love their expressions

this is my mom, my uncle and their grandmother (my great-great grandmother). i love my mom’s hair rollers and my great-great grandmothers cat eye glasses. the red thing on my mom’s lap is a photo album that i’ve looked through myself, many times

peach, plum, pear

i have quite fallen for this song. in the early early summer when i was first introduced to joanna newsom’s music i was unsure what i thought of it. it has taken a while for it to grow on me but this song just about makes me love her – even if i admittedly now nothing much of her. There’s also something that i love very much about old, amateur looking homevideos. espicially when set to music. kind of makes my heart flutter

Angela’s post somewhat inspired this one. I have been thinking a lot lately of the things that I’ve liked for a long time and that I don’t think I’d ever get tired of. Mostly music, I guess. So I figured I would compile a list of the bands that I love/the songs I love by them!

    The Strokes


Even though the lyrics are either really terrible or really lame I can’t help but love practically every song (even though “Room on Fire” and “Is this it?” sounded nearly identical!). I’m kinda bummed that this band isn’t going to be releasing anything anytime in the near future but we can definitely look forward to something eventually! On February 1 they announced that they have started recording their fourth album! Finally!
Even though I don’t get sick of this band very easily I kinda get tired of listening to the side projects easily. I guess it’s because I only have “Phrazes for the Young” by Julian Casablancas and the ST Little Joy album on my computer. Which totally makes sense considering there are no other albums I could possibly have (except for Julian’s EP and the other members’ solo projects. Whatever! Julian and Fabrizio all the way!).
