Realized today that Krishna Das’s newest album had recently come out so I promptly spent the rest of the evening listening to it on spotfiy with a grin on my face. When I listen to kirtan I feel lighter and better, I feel free of judgements (and that includes the quality of my singing voice). I am working on translating these feelings that I have while listening/chanting kirtan into the other parts of my life but whenever I need a moment of clarity I just listen to one of KD’s records. On this new album, Kirtan Wallah, I am absolutely all about Saraswati (which I saw him perform live in March- it captured my attention then and still holds it now) and 4AM Hanuman Chalisa (I just really love all the different variations of Chalisa’s that I’ve listened too as well). They are both just so wonderful and I highly recommend that everyone give his chants a listen, they are just something else.
10 Things I Hate About You has one of the greatest movie soundtracks ever. Like every song featured in the film just fits so perfectly and just adds so much to the film (which is already pretty great). I mean, from the one’s everyone remembers like Letters to Cleo’s I Want You To Want Me and Cruel To Be Kind, to Save Ferris’s I Know, and Sister Hazel’s Your Winter, the soundtrack is just pretty stellar. Don’t mind me, I’m just on a teen movie soundtrack binge, and I’m just admiring the greatness of some of the best films around.

I just really like the slow remix of Samantha Ronson’s “Built This Way,” it suited that particular scene it was featured in Mean Girls and the song is kinda perfect. And it is still culturally relevant even ten years later (the movie and the song lyrics). I’ve just finished watching Mean Girls because it was just one of those nights where I wanted to watch a favorite film I’ve seen a million times. I will never not find it a funny and poignant movie. And with the mother-load of quotable lines too! Can you think of any other film that has quite the same number of quoted lines (it’s basically the whole flippin’ movie let’s be honest)? So I guess what I’m trying to say is, Mean Girls is still fetch!
Some women want to be house wives and some women want to be Harvard professors and some women want to be porn stars and some women want to be nuns and some women want to be surgeons and there is nothing wrong with anyone’s profession I am sick of people being rude to women about their professions oh my god
I went to see Panic! at the Disco and Plain White T’s in concert tonight as part of my college’s springfest. I feel like I’ve made up for some of the concerts I missed seeing as a teen. Now, like practically everyone else of my generation I can say that I’ve seen these two bands which were massively popular during our early teen years in concert. Both gave really amazing performances too. And the lead for Panic! at the Disco took his shirt off at one point, as well as doing a back flip, and it was just all kinds of amazing. Plus, they sung my favorite song by them, Nicotine, so that made me happy.
oh well, at least zayn looked good

Oh whoops, I’ve just fallen in love with the musician Hozier. Everything from his voice to his song lyrics are just spectacular and exactly what I needed in my life right now.
