Day 282: Feel It All Around by Washed Out

23 Mar

If you’ve ever watched the show Portlandia and chilled out to the theme song without know what it was, you’re in luck!

“Feel It All Around” by Washed Out is my hipster-chillwave song of the week. Whenever I need to take a break from being AWESOME, I bust out this song and just relax (while still keeping AWESOME. yeah. that’s right.)

So enjoy this chill song, “Feel It All Around” by Washed Out!

Day 243: [BELATED… yet again] Moves by The New Pornographers

15 Feb

Man am I failing at updating or what?!

Anyways, I’ve got a few great posts coming up in the next few minutes so check em out!

I wanted to feature this video when it came out last week, but I unfortunately forgot… so here goes nothing!

“Moves” by The New Pornographers is their newest single off of their 2010 album Together (which is awesome, by the way… go check it out if you can).

The video for “Moves” is brilliant and clever and I wish it were real life. Mainly because all these actors and musicians in the same place at the same time would be glorious.

The video features celebs such as Donald Glover (Community), John Oliver (Daily Show), John Hodgeman (Mac Vs PC commercials), Ted Leo (of Ted Leo & The Pharmacists), Horatio Sanz (SNL), Wyatt Cenac (The Daily Show), Julie Klausner (Best Week Ever), Kevin Corrigan (Fringe and The Departed), Jon Wurster (Squidbillies), Paul Rudd (Role Models)  and Bill Hader (SNL). All these are featured in a fake movie called “Moves: The Rise and Rise of the New Pornographers”… a dramatic tale of how the worlds most chillest indie band became big and bigger. It’s awesome.

Check out “Moves” by the New Pornographers, and see what I mean for yourself!

Day 221: A little bit of butt abs and creepy pirates (aka Three Word Phrase)

21 Jan

Hey guys!

I’m exhausted and I’m going to make a small post tonight.

This is one of my favorite comics ever… it’s called “Three Word Phrase” by Ryan Pequin (who is a damn hilarious man) and it’s random and awesome.

Warning: some of these comics are a bit explicit, but they’re mostly silly. And I love them so.

Here are three of my favorites… click the pictures for more!

Check out these comics and more at Three Word Phrase. You can also follow Ryan Pequin on twitter, which is awesome.

Day 168: Doncamatic (All Played Out) by Gorillaz feat. Daley

29 Nov

Hello everyone!

Man oh man this week is already off to a crazy start! For us college students, it’s dead week… aka the week where everything falls apart.

Yes, I’m crazy stressed, but I always like to remember that this blog is there for a reason! In the midst of all this chaos, there is still some cool stuff out there.

Like, for example, Gorillaz’s new single “Doncamatic (All Played Out)” feat. Daley. At first, I reeeeeeallly didn’t like this song… it’s weird, and not the Gorillaz-norm (and, if you know me, I’m a huge fan of Gorillaz).

But, after I saw the music video, I couldn’t shake the rhythm out of my mind! It’s fun to sing along to, and fun to just groove out to!

Plus, the video makes me smile. As a big fan of the ocean and an ex-marine-biologist-wannabe, the underwater theme just made me smile!

So I hope you enjoy “Doncamatic (All Played Out)” by Gorillaz feat. Daley. And sorry if this song gets stuck in your head for days. I can’t get it out of my head!

Day 145: [BELATED… OF COURSE!] Kong by Bonobo

14 Oct

Hello there! If this is your first time on the site, be sure to check out the about page at the top for more info on my project! Also, sign the guestbook (also located in the top)!

Of course I forget. Of course. Guys and gals who read my blog, I apologize for my lack of word of keeping up my blog. I am super failing. But I guess I do have time to make up for it!

This post is dedicated to a band Tyler introduced me to right before I left for college. Bonobo is probably not everyone’s choice listening, mainly because it’s so chill and electronic, and not more word-clad. But it is really good and nice to listen to when you need something to relax to.

If I was still in Washington on the 20th of November, I would definitely be accompanying my best friend to the concert! But alas, I am not.

Anyway, I present you with Bonobo’s “Kong”. Enjoy!
