She was the third beer. Not the first one, which the throat receives with almost tearful gratitude; nor the second, that confirms and extends the pleasure of the first. But the third, the one you drink because it’s there, because it can’t hurt, and because what difference does it make?
Erin McCarley – Pitter Pat (Acoustic)
Pain takes my heart’s place
The love we made remains
A Great Big World – Say Something
Say something, I’m giving up on you
When the beat of my drum meets the beat of your heart
You know I couldn’t love any other, any other
Exactly one month till the 2014 Young the Giant CD replaces the 2010 Young the Giant CD in my car and my heart explodes.
If people want to let you go, just let them do it. They may not understand who you are. So don’t play around with fire; don’t give them their cake and let them eat it, too. Here is your rule of thumb: they either commit to you or get none of you.
Monday mani + Elliott Smith.
Drink up with me now and forget all about
The pressure of days, do what I say
And I’ll make you okay
All I want in life.
Beach House – Take Care
I’ll take care of you if you ask me to
City and Colour – The Golden State
Why’s everyone still singing about California?
Haven’t we heard enough about the Golden State?
I guess if you like sandy beaches and blue ocean water
There’s something about it, to which I cannot relate
City and Colour and vino.
Oh, my love, you don’t know what you do to me
Dallas Green’s voice still fixes things in the universe, FYI.
More videos from last night’s show here!
City and Colour – Un-Thinkable (Alicia Keys Cover)
This is exactly how it should feel when it’s meant to be
Time is only wasting so why wait for eventually
Dallas tonight ♥
Donuts help you realize what’s important in life.
Morgan Tookers is every guy I’ve ever been with.
Caroline Pennell – Anything Could Happen (Ellie Goulding cover)
I’ll give you everything you need
But I don’t think I need you
My coworker brought in Randy’s Donuts this morning because she wants to ruin my life, obviously.
got my fan letter attracts the crazies.
Local Natives – Ceilings
Thinking of what we’d give
To have one more day of sun
One day of sun
My work is hosting its third weight loss challenge this year, and I’m joining for the third time! It ends the week before Thanksgiving… just in time to
gain some holiday weight go shopping with my winnings ;) I’ve also decided to go gluten-free during the contest! Yikes. Thank yeezus for gluten-free vodka! I’m gonna need it…
I love that my new Apple TV allows me to stream episodes of Modern Family from my iPad mini to my HDTV while freeing up my macbook pro for some light internet stalking.
“There’s a lot of white people here!” – Marcus Mumford @ San Manuel Amphitheater
Mumford and Sons – Timshel (Live)
You’ll be sick or feeling troubled or deeply in love or quietly uncertain or even content for the first time in your life. It won’t matter. Out of the blue, beyond any cause you can trace, you’ll suddenly realize things are not how you perceived them to be at all. For some reason, you will no longer be the person you believed you once were. You’ll detect slow and subtle shifts going on all around you, more importantly shifts in you. Worse, you’ll realize it’s always been shifting, like a shimmer of sorts, a vast shimmer, only dark like a room. But you won’t understand why or how.
Me, too, ‘Nard Dog.
It took me so long to do so many important things. It’s hard to accept that I spent so many years being less happy than I could’ve been. Jim was five feet from my desk and it took me four years to get to him. It’d be great if people saw this documentary and learned from my mistakes. Not that I’m a tragic person, I’m really happy now. But it would just make my heart soar if someone out there saw this and she said to herself, ‘Be strong. Trust yourself. Love yourself. Conquer your fears. Just go after what you want and act fast! Because life just isn’t that long!’
Lucius – Until We Get There
What do you say, is this the time
for one more try at a happy life
What do you say, is this unwise
to think my fears will not reprise
Oh, so that’s where you’ve been.
It’s like watching myself on TV.
NICK CARRAWAY: You can’t repeat the past.
JAY GATSBY: Why, of course you can.
All I want in life.
The Weeknd – Wicked Games
Just let me motherfucking love you
I’m pretty sure I just got pregnant from this song.
STEFAN: How does anyone ever seem to move on?
CAROLINE: I think that someday, you’ll meet someone new, and you’ll fall madly in love, and you’ll have moved on without even realizing it.
Girls = new obsession.
This show is depressingly relatable. Also, you can get this book on Amazon.
(Don’t ask me how I know.)
City and Colour – Of Space and Time
I don’t know what drugs to take
To successfully alter the state
That my mind has been in as of late
Something is eating away at my brain
New album = new tour! I love me some Dallas Green.

You have nothing. You have a pile of secrets and lies, and you’re calling it love. And in the meantime, you’re letting your whole life pass you by while they raise children, and celebrate anniversaries, and grow old together. You’re frozen in time. You’re holding your breath. You’re a statue waiting for something that’s never going to happen. Living for stolen moments… you keep telling yourself they all add up to something real, because in your mind they have to, but they don’t. They won’t. They never will, because stolen moments aren’t a life. So you have nothing. You have no one.
