So I’m not asking for a tough critique of this music video, but I thought I’d throw this out there. This song doesn’t get everything right, but the spirit of it definitely gets me sometimes when I hear it, almost three years later. I still ask, “What is same love?” How can we even agree on what “love” is if we sometimes balk when someone says, “I love you?” I guess we find that singular thing and then share it with everyone else in a way that seems best for each individual person?
My third annual list. This is mostly personal preference, but with an ear to recommend both popular and obscure (mostly alt-rock and electronic) albums to other music lovers. On this list, albums get either a 1 (best) or 2 (rest); within those two groups, most have equal ground. This may seem like a boring list with no explanations, but pick one of your favorite genres and zero in on just one album. Let loose and enjoy your SELF!
If you’re having trouble reaching me this Wednesday until Monday, it’s because I’m in the woods. I’m driving up to Michigan for the four-day music festival, Electric Forest. This is the first time I’ll be camping at a music festival; I’m pretty excited to have this opportunity to get away with a few of my favorite people and see some great bands and DJs.
My phone will mostly be off save once a day to check for messages and maybe upload some photos to Instagram.
