i really and truly thought it was tuesday, and was about to post this only to realise i’m less than an hour away from thursday…well, who cares anyway
a couple months ago i loaded my new computer with contents of an old hard drive back up, including music, and found beautiful stuff i’d forgotten about (how does that even happen) and now i’m swooning again to califone
one of my favourite concerts of all time was seeing califone with iron & wine in san diego, 2007. oh goodness. i was in heaven.
swoon central! “long gone” by mary epworth. seriously 60s video, but more modern sound.
i’m sick, it feels like my eardrums are going to flop out of my ears, and i’d rather just lay on the couch for the next three days…
but here is some swoony music, anyway.
TAKING IT BACK TO THE 90S TODAY, KIDS
this song has been stuck in my head a lot recently. it was one of my favourites in the summer of 1999, when i was (gulp) fourteen. i listened to it again a couple months ago and found out it held up and still sounded good. even made me swoon a little bit.
i’ve heard this song on the radio a a few times, and it just catches me. a bit swoonier than i usually indulge in, but i’m going for it. let’s all swoon along together.
how have i gone without sigur ros for so long? i’ve loved them for years, ever since i got ( ) as a birthday gift at 19 and nearly wore out the cd, but over the past few years they’ve shifted out of heavy rotation. they’ve recently started cycling back into things and it’s time.
“the best thing god has created is a new day”
yeah, i think today is going to feature me watching heima and feeling mopey that i’m not in iceland. i thought going there once would be fine–i’d be satisfied–but i was wrong. it’s calling me back! like, HEY ARINN come ride horses and look at mountains and marvel at the lack of trees. uh, yeah, okay, that sounds delightful, where do i sign up?
this just makes me swoon. oh goodness. and since i just spent six days with my family, a song about families seems about right.
