Day 286: [BELATED] Dig A Little Deeper by Peter Bjorn and John

16 Apr

This song is so optimistic! I adore it so much!

Peter Bjorn and John, who are most well known for their song “Young Folks” (aka the whistle song), released a new CD called Gimme Some back in March. But what’s so great about it is the optimism that it reeks. This band’s music is normally so down that something like “Dig A Little Deeper” just makes you so happy on the inside!

It reminds me of a Swedish version of a Vampire Weekend song, and it’s playful tune makes me sort of dance every chance I get to hear it. I hope it puts you in a good mood, like it does with me!

Enjoy “Dig A Little Deeper” by Peter Bjorn and John!

Day 285: [BELATED] Movie I Want To See: Some Days Are Better Than Others (2009)

16 Apr

Hey everyone.

I saw this Portland-based/made/themed movie pop up on my blog roll a few months back, and I really want to see it! Not only is Carrie Brownstein (aka that one girl from Sleater-Kinney and Portlandia) in it, but my lovely James Mercer (lead singer of the Shins) plays a character as well.

The movie is about four different, quirky people who are leading lives that go nowhere… they sort of embark on a mental trip into the unknown of their soul, searching for the meaning of life, while conversing with each other.

Here’s the preview, and I really hope I can see this movie in the future:

Day 283: HEY HOMIES! by the Aquabats

12 Apr

HEY HOMIES!

I love this song. Seriously, not only is it my alarm clock in the mornings, but it’s also just the happiest song ever.

Plus we don’t need no thugs. Unless those thugs was giving out hugs.

They bring up a pretty strong argument!

By the way, I know I have posted The Aquabats before, but I’d like to remind all you guys that they are awesome. Their new CD just came out recently (Hi-Five Soup! click here to see it on iTunes) and it’s full of feel-good songs that fit perfectly with the impending summer season. I personally love “In My Dreams” and “Radio Down”…. just a few of the awesomeness that is ska-punk kids music for adults.

If you get a chance to see them live, please go. Please please please go. I’ve seen them twice, and I’m just waiting for them to come closer to me so I can go again. And don’t hesitate to dress up (no one else does).

So don those capes, put on those masks, and enjoy the life out of “Hey Homies!”

Day 280: Anna Sun by Walk The Moon

21 Mar

Hey everyone!

I found the most awesome website ever yesterday (We Are Hunted, a music website), but due to lack of time I can’t feature it until tomorrow.

However, a song on the website made me fall in love with indie music once more… The song is called “Anna Sun” by the band Walk The Moon, and it’s playful and sweet. Plus, it’s INSANELY catchy!

I highly recommend it to people who like bands like The Little Ones, Kings Of Leon, We Are Scientists, or even the Killers!

But enjoy “Anna Sun” by Walk The Moon!

Day 279: The Bucket

20 Mar

This game is just too cute to pass up. Made by the wonderful Nitrome, “The Bucket” is a really cute little 8-bit game where you (as a fish/bonsai tree) carry a raccoon in a basket through a complicated maze.

It sounds easy, but it’s a bit challenging. However, my favorite part is just how random it is… the plot doesn’t make sense, and yet it’s so adorable – especially the fish/bonsai when it completes a level!

So enjoy “The Bucket”, and check out more games at nitrome.com! (Click the picture to play the game)

Day 273: [SUPER BELATED 5 of 7] Ian Is Bored: STREET FIGHTER

17 Mar

I used to be a huge fan of Smosh videos… well, I’m still a pretty big fan but back in the day I used to have a teeshirt and watched those videos with my friends like everyday!

I sort of stopped watching the videos once I hit like junior year of high school, but last year I rediscovered my love for Ian and Anthony as I began to watch “Ian Is Bored.” It’s a video series they do each week where Ian does various things because he’s bored. I love it. A whole lot.

So today I wanted to feature my favorite one, episode four “STREET FIGHTER FAIL!”

I feel the pain in this episode because I get my ass handed to me in Street Fighter pretty much every time I play!

check it out here:

Also, check out all their other videos (like Lunchtime with Smosh, which is also hilarious) on their website: smosh.com.

Day 270: [SUPER BELATED 2 of 7] Hello Worlds!

17 Mar

For post number two, I’d like to dedicate this to my roommate Jamie (she’ll know why).

I found this game the other day and I really enjoyed playing it (especially playing as the turtle with the hat). It’s a puzzle game where you have to work your way through a level by focusing on three or more different screens. It’s really difficult to describe, so you should probably just check it out!
