Ingrid Michaelson - “Girls Chase Boys”
Ingrid is growing on me. I can get through her general theme of cutesy, love-focused melodies because there are these hooks in some of her songs that I just can’t get over. This one in particular has got it good.
such french, so drama.
This isn’t a song I expected to like, but I was on the train listening to my custom-ali pandora playlist and this came on. The first verse isn’t anything special and I half considered skipping it—pretty much what you’d expect with a girl and a ukelele singing about love—but the chorus has a hook that has burrowed itself into my brain and I keep coming back to it. Perhaps the line about the south of France has also burrowed itself into my head along with musings of a certain French person. He keeps throwing me these curve balls and right now I’m just trying to hang on.
I began to feel revulsion too. Insane people: I had a good nose for them and I didn’t want to have anything to do with them. I still don’t. I can’t come up with reassuring answers to the terrible questions they raise.
Don’t ask me those questions! Don’t ask me what life means or how we know reality or why we have to suffer so much. Don’t talk about how nothing feels real, how everything is coated with gelatin and shining like oil in the sun. I don’t want to hear about the tiger in the corner or the Angel of Death or the phone calls from John the Baptist. He might give me a call too. But I’m not going to pick up the phone.
If I who was previously revolting am now this far from my crazy self, how much farther are you who were never revolting, and how much deeper your revulsion?
A vigil held for Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager gunned down by Ferguson, Mo., police on Saturday in disputed circumstances, turned into what the media described as a riot on Monday evening.
But while national coverage has focused on the indisputably counterproductive violence and destruction committed by Ferguson residents during a moment of anguish, videos and photos taken from the scene show local police aggravating the situation as well.
Light it up, Ferguson. Respect to all of you.
real talk, one of Community’s funniest sequences.
Such a strangely captivating music video. It’s kinda easy forget about what kid energy feels and looks like and this is like an intimate reminder of that.
