Hey everyone!

So if you’re in Eugene tomorrow and are super bored and love music, you should most definitely come check out the WILLAMETTE VALLEY MUSIC FESTIVAL. Yeah, this may be blatant advertising, but it doesn’t hurt to get it out there!

The line up is pretty freaking sweet:

A-Trak
Yeasayer
Baths
Donnis
Catwalk
The Globes
The Codi Jordan Band
Jared Mees & The Grown Children…. and that’s only the main stage! ALL FREE. There’s more info here.

Anyways, to get you guys excited, here’s some A-Trak… he’s so awesome and I’m so stoked to see him. His DJing is top-notch, as you can see from this clip. Enjoy it and check out this awesome fest!

Sorry for the super strange post… I am so beyond tired. See ya on Sunday!!

Day 246: Hero by El May (and sung by Michelle Williams)

16 Feb

Happy belated valentines day!

I wanted to feature a beautiful song from one of my favorite movies of all time (aka The Baxter). The movie is a rom-com by indie comic genius Michael Showalter about the guy who gets left at the alter in all the perfect love-story movies… their called Baxters (or people who are old-fashioned… the ones who get hay fever and wear driving caps and like Mondays). The movie is incredibly adorable, and it always puts me in a great mood!

This song was written by El May, but in the movie Michelle Williams sings it as her character Cecile Mills. It’s really beautiful and I love the words.

I hope you enjoy “Hero” by El May and sung by Michelle Williams.

(here’s a preview for the movie… I hope everyone watches it because it’s wonderful and streaming on Netflix)

(and here’s a clip. I seriously want you guys to see this movie.)

PS I actually got to meet Michael Showalter 2 years ago, and I am pleased to say that he is one of the most wonderful people I’ve ever met. Absolutely wonderful.

EDIT: Big gigantic thanks to @mshowalter for getting people to check out my site! See, I told you he’s great!
