i believe

SOJA’s video “I Believe” featuring Michael Franti and Nako just premiered on VH1.  There isn’t a lot to it, but humans and Earth.  (Listen to the lyrics.  Heavy, right?)  These humans are good humans and, boy, did I need this.  Maybe we all need this.

“Go placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence.  As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons…” Desiderata, Max Ehrmann

my sweet summer

Found another summer jamalam!  The Dirty Heads released “Sound of Change” recently…and you should listen to it.

It sounds like summer and California and beaches and sunshine and boys and girls and beers and salt water and dancing and fire and everything that is happy.

PS NEW JERSEY – You can check out Jared, Duddy and the band with Aer and Pepper tonight at Wellmont and tomorrow at the Pony!  All you other folk, check out their tour dates here.

Finding Carter is a new drama on MTV about a girl whose life is flipped upside down when she finds out that the woman she thought was her mother is actually her kidnapper.  Maybe I’ve watched every episode already with my teenage sister.  Judge all you want, but my mom is hooked, too.

This is the theme song:

And props to my sister for finding Misterwives’ live version of “Vagabond” from SXSW this year:

all kinds of excited

Uhhh….definitely NSFW.

The rest of my day is totally shot, thanks to you, Mr. Grey.

AND…B’s broken down version of “Crazy in Love”?

I have a feeling the soundtrack is going to be 50 Shades of definitely-not-fucked-up because it’s already sounding like Jay-Z’s outstanding production of most recent The Great Gatsby‘s soundtrack.

Am I right? :

two tomatoes

It’s undeniable that “Stay With Me” by Sam Smith is the song of 2014.  Even if you feel like it’s overplayed, hearing these two covers–by two redheads–proves how solid of a hit it truly is and may change the way you feel about it.  Plus, I can’t get off of this Ed Sheeran kick (and Florence will always be a goddess).

I hope this is a movement–one that infiltrates our society. In the previous post John Legend works to redefine beauty and here Colbie Caillat is doing the same thing. This song and the video that accompanies it are breathtaking and it is impossible not to relate to the words. Take a moment and lets redefine beautiful. c.

he called me

I know most of you probably think “wow, c must have a really great friendship with john” since I posted the song “You and I” two days ago and he just released the new video. He is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G and this video is profound. Watch and cry. c.
