Totally silly and not-big-dealish, but I got a kick out of having three of my pics re-grammed on IG over the past couple of weeks:

Songs I'm digging lately:

1. Family of The Year - Hero
2. The Morning Benders - Excuses
3. Dillon Francis - Beautician 2.0
4. Dillon Francis - I.D.G.A.F.O.S.
5. Youth Lagoon - Daydream
6. Youth Lagoon - Posters
7. Architecture in Helsinki - Escapee
9. Pnau - Unite Us
10. Geographer - Life of Crime


There's been a ton of filming downtown lately. Most of the time I get a kick out of it; occasionally it's annoying, like when I'm in a hurry with Chaucer, and they're blocking off access to his Preferred Pee Tree.

I've been pretty obsessive with music lately.  Listening to the same tracks over and over and over until they're coursing through my veins. Three groups in particular:

The Walkmen (Victory, Angela Surf City, JuvenilesHeaven, Song for Leigh, Line by Line, Lisbon, While I Shovel The Snow, Torch Song)
Telekinesis (Dirty Thing, Gotta Get It Right Now, Please Ask For Help, Tokyo)
Chris and Thomas (Broken Chair, You're The One I Want, Horse in The Sky, New Light)

Also - exciting! - I got my ticket to see The Lumineers on the second! Going alone. Don't care.  I could drag a friend, but I know how boring it is to watch live music you're not into.  I'd rather be surrounded by other fans, which I will be: it's sold out (much of the tour is, in fact).


Looking up, around my neighborhood:

It's been ages since I've shared any music, but I'm feeling a little too lazy to write out individual songs and link up videos, sorry. So here's a list of suggestions, stuff I've found in the past few months on Spotify, that I'm digging.

If you like (more popular) X, you might like (lesser known) Y. I think. No guarantees or anything.

Geographer - Kisses
Ray La Montagne - Sean Hayes
Radiohead - Animal Kingdom
Stars - The Submarines
Ben Folds - Jukebox the Ghost
Washed Out - Blackbird Blackbird
The Lumineers - Blitzen Trapper


Sights: while my dad rested yesterday, I went exploring. Apollo Beach is a fairly small town, surrounded by even smaller ones. I wish I had something better than my iPhone to shoot with, but I'm grateful for the distraction, the sunshine, and the fact that my father was even able to get some rest at all (some days are better than others).

Sounds: one word: Bonnaroo, to which I've just made plans to go with A. Radiohead. Foster the People. Two Door Cinema Club. Young the Giant. The Temper Trap. Ben Folds Five. The Kooks. Trampled By Turtles. City and Colour. Those are just my favorites from the lineup; there are many more. And there are some awesome Bonnaroo paylists up on Spotify. I have a lot of music to get acquainted with in the next couple of months!


Puppies at the dog park today - a Chihuahua and a Pit, who was far too squirrelly to stay still long enough for a good pic:

Sounds: My Head is An Animal, the new album by Of Monsters and Men. Check it out on Spotify. What's that? You're not listening to a massive catalog of entire albums for free, on Spotify? Do yourself a favor and get on that.

Also, I Wish I Knew, by Years and Years. Heard a clip of it on the Johann Hari podcast and looked it up - I've only found it so far on Reverb Nation, and not for download, but it's worth a listen or four.


Chaucer at the dog park today, triumphant with two (2) tennis balls:

The "dog park", which is really just the grass behind the police department (strangely, the cops don't mind if dogs are off leash here, which means Chauc can get a fix of socialization and ball-chasing):

You can actually see his majesty in the distance up there, to the left.
