Same old story, not much to say. Hearts are broken every day.

Sad seasons in life (broken hearts) sometimes align with sad seasons in nature (winter).

Sometimes people let you believe that they love you, never actually correcting you or telling you otherwise, they just go on not loving you. While you stand by idly. Trusting their heart. Surrendering your heart over to them. Living in an illusion.

And then, instead of fighting for your heart when the moment arises, they just walk away. And you sit at home. And cry. Alternating between listening to sad songs and binge watching Friday Night Lights on Netflix (or on DVD when Netflix also betrays you). While you eat unhealthy amounts pizza and puppy chow. Because that is what numbs the pain.

People tell you that it gets better. That you deserved better. But thostirede aren’t the people who just watched their futures go from happily ever
after to lonely cat-lady.

All it does is reopen the wounds when you talk about it to new people and have to explain all the nuances of your lost relationship. And your friends, your real friends, the ones who know everything and love you anyway, they are tired of hearing about Adr-eh-um-him. They are tired of hearing about him. So you fake it. Fake it until you make it, right?

And so you pretend to be okay. Because it’s exhausting being sad all the time. And sometimes you are okay; because life is full of distractions. And sometimes you go back. Even after you said you wouldn’t. “For real this time,” you said. But you’re in love. And you can’t help it. So you go back every time thinking things will be different. One day hopefully it will be. Or one day you’ll fully heal. But truth be told, I don’t want to just heal, I want him. But I guess I would settle for either.

And then you make a playlist. And then you blog about it. Because your word vomit has to go somewhere. And Lord knows that boy doesn’t want to hear it.

Warmer Weather

THE DAYS ARE GETTING WARMER!

One time, in Malibu, I wanted it to be warmer. And it just would not cooperate. So I just faked it.

One time, in Malibu, I wanted it to be warmer. And it just would not cooperate. So I just faked it.

Winter is finally going (see what I did there?).

And with winter going, that means summer is coming. And with summer coming, that means that my days are getting happier. And with my days getting happier, that means I need some music that I can play in my car with my windows down. And that, my friends, calls for a new playlist.

1. Happy — Pharrell Williams G I R L

“It might seem crazy what I’m about to say. Sunshine, she’s here, you can take a break.”

“We play pretend, keeping all our feelings in. Somehow I knew, it’s always been you.”

4. Sway — The Perishers Let There Be Morning

8. Not a Bad Thing — Justin Timberlake The 20/20 Experience Part 2

“Said all I want from you is to see tomorrow, and every tomorrow, maybe you’ll let me borrow your heart.”

9. Barely Breathing — Glee (Single) (say what you will, but Darren Criss can sing to me allll day.)

“I know what you’re doing, I see it all too clear. I only taste the saline, when I kiss away your tears.”

10. Enough for Always — Kate Voegele Gravity Happens

“You’re stubborn and I’m worse, you know. But your smile is like that country road in Virginia.”

11. Even the Stars Fall 4 U — Keith Urban Fuse

“Yeah, those fireflies in the field, they gotta know the way I feel.”

12. Little Bit — Drake (Feat. Lykke Li) So Far Gone

“Both hearts beat like a metronome. Both in sync like a Justin song.”

“And all we are is skin and bone, trained to get along. Forever going with the flow, but you’re friction.”

14. Heart Starts — Matt Nathanson Last of the Great Pretenders

People throw rocks at things that shine

When you’re a big time celebrity people will hate on you for just about anything.  No matter what you do, you can never make people happy.

She’s too fat/she’s too skinny.

Her voice isn’t good enough/her voice is so good that it must be auto-tuned (which first off, is wrong, auto-tune isn’t what you use to make your voice better).

They never change their style of music, it all sounds the same/they’ve changed too much, they’re not the artist I liked.

She’s too pretty, must be photoshopped/gross, she’s so ugly.

Why does she always act so surprised win she wins/wow, she’s so ungrateful.

There’s just no way to win.

I’ve been hearing a lot of hate recently about Taylor Swift. Now, if you know me, you know that I basically put that girl on a pedestal. It’s not that I think she’s perfect or anything, it’s just that I adore her (I’m also fairly certain we are the same person). And I have a really hard time just standing idly by while people mock her. I probably have harder time dealing with haters than she does, but I mean, I’m not the one who’s cashing their million-dollar paychecks every week.

Now that you know I adore Taylor, you can probably guess that I am excited about her new album, RED, dropping in just a couple weeks. Like for real, I am so excited. And even though I hate it when artists release “lead-up” songs, I can’t deny that I eagerly search the internet every Monday at 9 pm (after the song releases on itunes East Coast time) to hear her new songs. I love them all. I loved “Begin Again,” and I loved “Red” and I even love this new, strange sounding song “I Knew You Were Trouble.” (yeah, the song title has a period in it). Truth be told, I will probably love every single song she releases from now until she decides she no longer wants to write songs.

But, I’ve been hearing some negative feedback. And I just get so frustrated with people. Why can’t you just LEAVE TAYLOR ALONE (yeah, that was me mocking that B-Spears video from years back). I know that Taylor doesn’t need anybody to come to her defense, but I’m going to anyway.

People are mad that she’s not country anymore. Okay, I can kind of understand this if you are a strictly country fan. If you must have your banjos and fiddles to be happy. I can understand being upset that not all of her new songs incorporate these instruments, but that is no reason to be mad at her. So she likes pop music now, big deal. When she started out she was 16-years-old, and now she’s almost 23, a lot of things can change in that time. That’s not a bad thing. She’s always been a little bit country-pop anyway (a lot contemporary country artists are these days). And honestly, I don’t think she will ever leave her country roots altogether. It’s not time to panic quite yet, country radio. We have yet to hear the whole album, and I’d be willing to bet my favorite turtle earrings that there are one or two country tracks on there. 

Another complaint I keep seeing is “she’s just changed too much.” Um, wait a second. All I ever read before was how people were tired of her because she never changed. How she was always the same, predictable and not exciting to listen to anymore. What do you want from the girl? You’re not happy when she changes, but you’re not happy when she does either? Now, that’s not really fair, is it? People have abandon artists that don’t change. The music industry abandons them and so their “fans.” In order to stay relevant she couldn’t just stay stagnant.

“Taylor Swift is not relatable anymore. All she ever sings about are her celebrity boyfriends,” –actual quote I overheard at Ralph’s yesterday. All Taylor Swift has ever sang about are her boyfriends, and now they just happen to be celebrities. She just sings about her life, it’s your probably for not being able to just listen to it without having to try to place a face to song. I relate just as well to “Enchanted” (a song written for Adam Young of Owl City) as I did to “Teardrops on my Guitar” (a songs written about a random boy named Drew) back in the day. I don’t think that’s her problem, I think it’s the fans and media’s problem with always being obsessed with who she is dating/has dated.

Okay, that’s it. I’m done with my little defensive rant. I just get so mad that people always seem to be trying to knock her down. I mean, why shouldn’t we be more endorsing of her? She’s a way better role model than Rihanna. Her songs are way better (you don’t ever hear Taylor Swift singing that “chains and whips excite” her). She’s actually wears clothing during her shows and performances (as opposed to coming out in some form of lingerie). And she’s just an all around kind person (when was that last time you heard about Rihanna giving $50,000 to a school for the deaf after a prank got out of hand? Taylor did.)  I just think there are already so many bad influences out in the world that maybe we should celebrate one of the better influences of this generation. Just an idea.

To have soooo many haters out there, she still seems to be doing alright in the world. I mean, her songs and albums still break records. And people still go to her shows. And read/watch her interviews. I guess it’s true that people throw rocks at things that shine.

Malibu Monday

George and I declared this past Monday (President’s Day) Malibu Monday. We got up early-ish, packed a picnic, and then headed off. When I got up in the morning I was pretty cranky, partly because I had to wake up at 8:30am, but mostly because it was cold (well, that’s relative, it was like 60 degrees) and cloudy. Not exactly how I was picturing the day should be. I was thinking more along the lines of sunny with a high of 75. I even wore sweatpants on the drive. I was not happy.

But the closer we got to Malibu, the better the weather got. I guess since Malibu is so wealthy they can afford to pay for extra sunshine. The drive to Malibu was not a bad one to say the least. We drove up the PCH (that’s code for Pacific Coastal Highway), which runs, as you would imagine, right along the pacific coast. The scenery was fantastic. Rolling waves, rock bluff, plus some pretty spectacular houses; Malibu would not be a bad place to live. While I’m looking at these houses, I ‘m just wondering who all could possibly live in them. It could be anyone. Tons of celebrities live in Malibu mansions; I could have been looking at George Clooney’s house! I have decided that one day I’m going to buy a home in Malibu, and then invite all my friends to live there with me, unless I’m married, in which case, y’all are on your own. Two years. I will have my Malibu home in two years, that’s my goal. Wish me luck!

The beach we chose was completely empty (I’m not going to mention the name of the beach in hopes of keeping it empty). We were the only ones there, and it was awesome. When we got there the tide was still pretty high, meaning that there wasn’t much room on the actual shoreline beach, so we set up camp on a bluff overlooking the beach. Which, in my opinion, was way cooler anyway. After we set up camp, we went down to explore. I have never been to a beach where there was no one else. We had free reign to run and scream and frolic. There were rock formations and a cave (which of course made me think of The Hunger Games), and after the tide went down there were a few tide pools. It’s definitely not the best place to swim, you know since all the rocks could be potentially dangerous, not to mention the sea lion we saw swimming like 10 feet off shore, but it was still the best beach ever.

Below you will find my Malibu Monday playlist:

1. Banana Pancakes – Jack Johnson In Between Dreams

5. Bottom of the Sea – Matt Nathanson Modern Love

6. Impatient Girl – Kate Voegele Gravity Happens

Fall 2011 Playlist

I like to make playlists; it’s how I deal with everything. From events in my life, road trips, to changing seasons; I have a playlist for everything. I’ll be sharing them with you when I have time (slash remember). I think, most of the time my choices will probably be from artists that people are familiar with, but sometimes the artists may be a bit off the beaten path. Just roll with it.

 

Fall 2011

1. The Real World – Owl City All Things Bright and Beautiful

“Reality is a lovely place, but I wouldn’t want to live there.”

2. Talkin’ Smooth – Kate Voegele A Fine Mess

“Every good girl has a real goo reason to believe in breakin’ all the rules sometimes. I’m that girl and, baby, you’re that reason.”

3. Running Man – Hanson The Walk

“He’s playing you for a fool. He’s foolin’ ‘round on you. And I just lost my cool. Feeling so sad.”

I tend to put my favorite song of the moment as song number three. This is my current favorite song. I don’t know why, there’s just something about it. Zac Hanson; the fun piano; my undying love of Hanson, it all just works.

4. Just A Feeling – Maroon 5 Hands All Over

“Obsessed, depressed at the same time, I can’t even walk in a straight line.”

5. Somewhere With You – Kenny Chesney Hemingway’s Whiskey

“It’s just a temporary high, cause when I close my eyes I’m somewhere with you.”

6. It Will Rain – Bruno Mars

I have been waiting for a new song from this guy for forever.

7. Modern Love – Matt Nathanson Modern Love

“They sing me love songs with store-bought words. They make promises like politicians. So we stumble and disconnect over and over again.”

8. Texas Was You – Jason Aldean My Kinda Party

Yeah, this one only made the list because it reminds me of Friday Night Lights: The Series (which I’m watching in honor of it being high school football season). Texas forever!

9. I Find the Light In You – Joe Brooks A Reason to Swim

“I don’t think there’s a sun that’s ever shone brighter than the radiance of you. And I wouldn’t want one to.”

I have been a fan of this guy for a long time, and this song has always been one of my favorites. I’ve been listening to it on rough-cut tracks forever, so, naturally I was thrilled when I learned that it would be included on his new EP. It’s beautiful and sweet, and I hope one day that (future) Husby will think of me this way. Joe may not be someone people are familiar with, but they should be. Go check him out on www.joebrooks.com!

10. Best Day of My Life – Jesse McCartney The Beautiful Soul Tour Live

I fell in love with this song when I heard it A Cinderella Story (Don’t hate, I love that movie). I’m pretty sure this song belongs to someone else originally, but I have a soft spot for J-Mac, so his version wins out.

11.  Wonderwall – Oasis (What’s the Story) Morning Glory

“Because maybe, you’re gonna be the one that saves me. And after all, you’re my wonderwall.”

12.  Love Song – Hanson This Time Around

“In this love song, you can love long. But if you love wrong it doesn’t mean the loves gone. I wish someone would of told me before.”

13. You Can’t Do That – The Beatles The Beatles Second Album

14. And I Waited – Hanson Shout It Out

Yeah, there’s quite a bit of Hanson of this playlist, but I like them. A lot. And they have a lot of seriously good music. (I’m not going to get into it all now, because there will be a future Hanson post, stay tuned.)

15.  Calling All Angels  – Train My Private Nation

“In a world where what we want is only what we want until it’s ours.”

16.  You’re Not Thinking – Drake Bell A Reminder

‘So please, please, please. You got to let me go. You, you, you, you don’t even know that you’re not thinking, you’re not thinking about me.”

17. The Last Goodbye – David Cook This Loud Morning

“I know somebody out there will love you. They’ll be the forever we never were, ‘cause we were everything that’s right at the wrong time.”

18. When You’re Gone – Hanson Underneath

“Well I just can’t seem to pity, ‘cause my heart’s too numb to feel. And the smile does all the talking, though the pain is all that’s real.”

19.  Busy Bee – Bryan Greenberg Waiting for Now

Thank you One Tree Hill. Jake Jagielski has always been my favorite OTH character, and then I discovered that he was also a musician. I love him. I love his laid back style, and his under-produced sound (under-produced in a good way).

20. Fine By Me – Andy Grammer Andy Grammer

“I’m just sayin’ it’s fine by me, if you never leave. And we could love like this forever, it’s fine by me.”
