I’m back! I love writing on this blog and realized that I have been absolutely AWFUL at keeping up with it. So I’m going to start writing again. I’m going to start my new era of blogging with a few things I’m really loving right now.
Sledding with Tigers – One of the best bands in the whole entire world, according to me. They are seriously so great and the best folk-punk-bluegrass to exist. The song “Never Really Good At Sports” puts my exact feelings into words and that’s just amazing. They also have an entire album dedicated to space jam…
Sports – I started listening to this playlist on spotify called “Surf Rock Sunshine” and now I can’t stop listening to it. It’s cool and calm and warm, it makes me want to look at clouds or something. But one of the bands I’ve discovered from this playlist is called Sports. They have an album called “Naked All The Time” that I want to listen to all summer. The vocalist sounds calm and lazy, in the best way, and the guitar sounds so cool. Some of the songs on the album almost sound warped, like an old record.
Casablanca – I rewatched this one last night and it’s just so great. I’ve always loved Ingrid Bergman because I feel like we have a special connection. (We have the same birthday.) (Coincidentally, she died on our birthday! Isn’t that bizarre?) Casablanca is one of the OG rom coms, which I’m always a sucker for. It also has some of the best lines ever. Including “We’ll always have Paris” and “Here’s lookin’ at you, kid”. It’s superb.
Cruddy – I’m reading this book right now and it’s wonderful. My aunt gave it to me when I went to Ohio, and I haven’t been able to put it down since. It’s a journal from the point of view of this girl who’s bizarre and badass and has had the strangest experiences. I’ll leave it at that, cause I want everyone to read it. The novel is also illustrated! It has the coolest pictures. I’m really liking it so far, and its an easy read.
Geek Love – This might just be my mom’s favorite book ever. She gave me a copy of it for Christmas, and I had forgotten about it until a few weeks ago. It lives up to the hype my mom gives it. It’s about a bald hunchbacked albino dwarf named Olympia. She grew up in a family of “oddities” and travelled around with her father’s circus. Her brother has fins and her sisters are conjoined twins. Her mother made a name for herself biting the heads off of chickens. It’s a really good book. Also half of it is set in Portland!
If you see/hear/read any of these things (or if you already have!) tell me what you think!
