All right suckers, three more posts! Tomorrow is the very last one, so I will let it stand alone. It is much more dramatic that way.
Day 28, Tuesday: Only pictures
I can’t follow instructions, so here are some photos of me being dumb!
Day 29, Wednesday: Five songs or pieces of music that speak to you or bring back memories. Use Grooveshark or YouTube to include them in the post
I do this all the time anyway in lieu of writing an actual post. Man, I looked at some of the other posts for this challenge, and some people have horrific taste in music. I know it is all subjective, but I am right, and you are wrong. I am just going to post some songs I’ve been digging lately. THEY ~SPEAK~ TO ME.
Age of Consent-New Order. Man, this song seems like it was created just for MLC to cover it. It is so fucking good. Damn.
Give Me Some Kind of Sign- Brenton Wood. Everything about this so is great. The lead vocals, the harmony, the organ solo. All music should be this smooth.
Fist City- Loretta Lynn. You better move your feet if you don’t want to eat a meal that’s called Fist City. I love her.
Tusk-Fleetwood Mac. I’ve been listening to this song on repeat for the past few weeks now. It is amazing and unique. I am desperately in love with Lindsey Buckingham, so much so that Stevie will never be higher than my fourth favorite member of Fleetwood Mac because I am so jealous of her. Never mind that he was a total dick, cocaine is a hell of a drug.
Blurred Lines- Robin Thicke featuring T.I., Pharrell. I included this just to prove that I actually listen to songs from this decade. This song is hot shit. It replaced “Get Lucky” as my new summer jam. I don’t even care if it is incredibly sexist. It is fun as hell. If you like boobies, I highly recommend you check out the unrated version of the video.
It is pretty impressive that I managed to post 5 songs without even one David Bowie video. See, I am growing as a person.
BONUS: This is my favorite song to clean the house to. I guess don’t listen to it at work or in front of people who don’t like the word fuck. ASAP Rocky is so dapper!
Day 30, Thursday: React to this term: Letting Go
I guess this prompt is supposed to serve as therapy or something. I will resist the urge to make this about bowel movements and try to BE LEGIT. Looking at all of those pictures I just posted makes me realize that I need to “let go” of my former life. I am a mother now, and I guess it’s time to grow up. I can’t go to ALL of the parties my friends have, I can’t have improptu dance parties after the bars close, and I can’t get AS drunk in the middle of the day as I used to. It’s hard, because it seems like a lot of my friends are stuck in this state of permanent adolescence, and I want to go to Never Never Land with them. BUT NOOOOOO, I HAVE OBLIGATIONS NOW. C’est La Vie! Growing up isn’t so bad, I will just take it little by little. I’m still going to have fun, and now a whole different kind of fun with my son. But I’m telling you now, if I ever get to urge to do whippits and listen to Steely Dan, goddamit I’m going to do it, and no one can stop me.
P.S. Y’all don’t know how difficult it was to talk about growing up while wearing a little boy’s shirt that I purchased at the Dollar General.
