Vacation days requested.
Spotify playlist made.
Is it August yet???
Um, of course my #choking playlist has Young the Giant on it… as does my workout playlist and my baby makin’ playlist. Just kidding. (I don’t have a workout playlist.)
I had my camera in one hand and my Texas-sized maple bacon donut in the other! Um, best day evs. More videos of Young the Giant at the OC Fair here.
Things I learned at the OC Fair yesterday:
- Young the Giant is just as good the third time around.
- The porkabello kabobs from Bacon A-Fair are gravely disappointing.
- I only like cute farm animals on the interwebs—IRL the smell of livestock elicits my gag reflex.
Young the Giant has been on constant rotation in my car for over a year now. I’m not particularly proud of it (that’s a lie). And I want you to know, it ends right here (also a lie).
On the drive to work this morning, I tried listening to the radio for a change. While flipping through stations, I heard songs by P.M. Dawn, Sir Mix-A-Lot, Mary J. Blige, TLC… Is it 1992? Am I back in the fifth grade? Did I just leave a note in David Krzywicki’s desk telling him that I think he’s cute???
If I wanted to hear 90s music, I’d listen to Shi’s “current” playlist! Ha.
P.M. Dawn – Set Adrift On Memory Bliss
My summer soundtrack ♥
Update (6/9): For those of you who asked—and by ‘those of you’ I mean ANTHONY, and by ‘asked’ I mean demanded—you can download all the songs from this playlist here. Enjoy, my lovelies!
Um, WTF Outside Lands? After Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and Coachella announced similar (amazing!) lineups, I was sure you would follow suit. But Stevie Wonder? Neil Young? Okay so maybe I wouldn’t mind seeing the Foo Fighters. Or Santigold. Or Franz Ferdinand. But not for $165 plus hotel and airfare to SF. Never have twelve syllables hurt me so much to say, but NOT EVEN YOUNG THE GIANT COULD SAVE THIS LINEUP! I should have went to Coachella. At least I would have seen Radiohead. And Tupac’s hologram. Boo whore.
In other news, Incubus and Linkin Park are touring together, and their last show is here in SD! My 19-year-old self is punching the air in excitement.
Do the things I wanna do
Not the ones I’m supposed to
Why can’t I get close to the better side of me
When I was young
Young the Giant debuted some new songs last night at Soma and this was my favorite…
I’m pretty sure this is Jesse’s way of saying that he no longer appreciates hearing me blast Young the Giant in my shitty earbuds all the livelong day.
Merry Christmas to us both!
See more videos from the best day of my existence here.
I battle my obvious love of Young the Giant on a daily basis.
YTG had 99 comments on their status update, and mine was the only one they “liked” ;)
I don’t know what’s sadder—is it how easily I recognized an In-N-Out secret menu order, or is it the fact that this was the highlight of my weekend?
My favorite band on my favorite sister’s birthday in my favorite sister’s city?!
Life’s too short to even care at all…
I’ve had Young the Giant’s In the Open Sessions on rotation all summer, but I’m pretty sure I’ll still be listening to them this fall. And next winter. And when I’m on social security.
Young the Giant – In the Open Sessions
- Guns Out
- Every Little Thing
- West Virginia
- Cough Syrup
- I Got
- Your Side
- God Made Man
Sooner or later, this is bound to stop
Come on, let’s savor what we’re falling over
Get out your guns, it’s time to start a fight
Whoa, and it won’t take too long
I want to make it right
I’m a little bit obsessed with this band.
