Emily King – The Switch

 

Emily King has been around since 2007.  I think I found her in lie 2010 when Bella was like “oh hey can you find this Emily King CD (East Side Story) for me” and I found it, and borrowed it and she lived on my iPod until I actually listened to it in 2012.  But she hadn’t had another full length CD since then until now.  The Switch.

Bella sent me a text with a YouTube link and I promptly lost my shit but I’ve been busy catching up on podcasts so I hadn’t really been doing new music.  … and then

Me and Cassandra went to go see this exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston called “Pay $36 to Stand in a Box and Instagram Photos for 4 Minutes”.

Worth it.

Technically it’s the Kusama: At the End of the Universe exhibit and it’s cool and existential and you’ll really enjoy it if you speak Japanese. Anyway, if you’re in Houston, you have until September 18th to go.  Don’t think you can just up and go to the museum and buy a ticket.  BUY ONLINE BEFORE YOU GO.  They encourage photography and if you hashtag it properly on IG you can grab a print out of your photo at a little photo booth.… and then

POTUS’ Summer Jams

 

Y’all.  President Obama came out with two playlists for the summer.  You will never ever get to say President Anyone came out with two playlists for the summer ever again in life, so political views aside, let’s just take the time to appreciate this brief, glorious moment in history.

 

The tweet came through Thursday afternoon from @Potus that he had two playlist for the summer.  A day one.  And a night one.

Writing

Remember When I Used to Write?

I think the Internet has ruined a lot of words but I’d like to think “obsessed” is at the top of the list (very top is “literally”), so I won’t discuss a “current obsession”.  What I will say is that I have completely consumed every currently available episode of The Bright Sessions podcast.

It’s a fiction podcast that follows Atypicals with special abilities as they speak with their therapist.  Think X-Men seeing a shrink.  But since it’s a podcast, it’s like (how I assume) those old school radio shows.  Little Orphan Annie (“Don’t forget to drink your Ovaltine”) or War of the Worlds or whatever the hell people listened to.… and then

2016.5

August 5, 2016

I wanted to write this the beginning of July but here we are.

2016 has been pretty much a shit show, but we’ve been doing a lot as our family unit to enjoy the year.  Having a 5 year old has been fun and trying but we’ve been able to do more than we ever could when she was younger.

Instead of keeping the year in a box, this year I decided that we would keep a cork board in the living room with all the things that we did this year.  Normally the ticket stubs get thrown into a box never to be seen again.  … and then
