This is a story...


(1988- present)- Saving the world, one heartshake and hugjump at a time.

She:
is a speech-language pathologist in Illinois. Prefers the sound words and letters make together over their intrinsic meaning (example: teardrop, puddle, and pickle). Loves e.e. and vonnegut, and a little bit of Robert M. Sapolsky.

I'm just a girl looking for something real. Maybe I'll find it here in my truthful meanderings.

Allie, 24. loving life. Nice to meet you.

The Mamas & The Papas | Dream a Little Dream of Me

Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you—-
Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you.
But in your dreams, whatever they be,
Dream a little dream of me.

This album (set of albums? concept journey?) is nothing short of exceptional. There’s such a range of lyricism, tone, musicality between the three of them, and this one snuck up on me while lesson planning (aka, shuffling through itunes and drinking tea and doingeverythingexceptsittingdowntowriteanythingdown) and I love those drums.And that lil guitar twiddle. I’m gonna learn how to do that one day.

Driving South, The Early November

I have this friend who was born again.
Every morning he wakes relieved of his sins.
Oh, after hours of losing himself,
He gets to his knees and he prays for his health.

And to the palm trees and driving south
It’s in the waves where we find ourselves
Back at the ocean to meet with dirt where we will weigh and find ourselves.
And we will talk in ways that life has been so mean
And see, there’s always someone, always stepping on me.
Oh please, please, please, tell me.

Oh wake me, wake me, But don’t tell me I’m lazy when I
Pull the covers back over my face.
Oh wake me, wake me, because we’re all going crazy
and we’re always preaching that everyone’s wrong.

And to the palm trees and driving south
It’s in the the waves where we find ourselves
back at the ocean to meet with dirt we will weigh to find ourselves
So we can talk of ways that life has been so mean
And see there’s always someone, always stepping on me.
Oh please, please, please, tell me.

Also, Ani DiFranco, Half Assed, although it’s really more one of those songs you need to hear before it jumps on you, monkeyback styled.

You start trippin
And i start slippin away
I was taught to zip it
If i got nothin nice to say

And down in the texas of my heart
Driving a really big truck
Headed down a dirt road
My love is scrunchin up it’s features
The really big eyes
Big lips, big nose

Just show me a moment that is mine
Its beauty blinding and unsurpassed
Make me forget every moment that went by
And left me so half-hearted
Cuz i felt it so half-assed

You are an unruly translucent
A dirty windshield with a shifting view
So many cunning running landscapes
For my dented door to open into
I just wanna tune out all the billboards
Weld myself a mental shield
I just wanna put down all the pressures
And feel how i really feel

Just show me a moment that is mine
Its beauty blinding and unsurpassed
Make me forget every moment that went by
And left me so half-hearted
Cuz i felt it so half-assed

Spring is super in the supermarkets
And the strawberries prance and glow
Nevermind that they’re all kinda tart and tasteless
As strawberries go
Meanwhile wild things are not for sale
Anymore than they are for show
So i’ll be outside, in love with the kind of beauty
It takes more than eyes to know

Just show me a moment that is mine
Its beauty blinding and unsurpassed
And i’ll forget every moment that went by
And left me so half-hearted
Cuz i felt it so half-assed

Sometimes I can’t remember what I’ve already posted vs. what I’ve shared with other people in other mediums vs. what I REALLY WANT TO LISTEN TO RIGHT NOW, FORGET YOU! Just kidding, I love you.

Tell me what you know about dreaming.

Oh da-da-DIA, you betcha cute self (and slammin vocals) I won’t kick the chair! Work it, Cudi, you’re sick. Is it strange that I have pretend dialogue with various musical artists everytime I hear a new song? Probably. Am I concerned? Nope. Will it stop? Not a chance :)

You Always Hurt the Ones You Love by Ryan Gosling

 Now that movie is actually pretty bad, but his voice is pretty excellent. I always assumed that it was a cover of Elvis, but really it’s the Mills Brothers. And he sounds like an adorable warbling puppy dog howling at the moon.

Of Monsters and Men - Dirty Paws

Iceland! Iceland! What do you put in your water? You give me Björk, Sigur Rós, Emilíana Torrini and now Of Monsters and Men?

This sextet’s first album is like this perfect smorgasbord of indie music. Little bit of Arcade Fire, Mumford & Sons, sprinkle of Florence & the Machine and a touch of the xx. Admittedly, Dirty Paws is not their catchiest song (that award goes to Little Talks) but I think it best represents the album as a whole. I also love how evocative the lyrics are.

Their new album, My Head is an Animal, is only available in Iceland but it’s slated for an early 2012 US release. To tide you over, you should check out their EP Into The Woods.

p.s. Oh and did I forget to mention that their song, “Little Talks” is the free single of the week on iTunes?

I need to stop drinking classy beverages of a deliciously intoxicating nature and think it’s ok to sing extra loud and poorly at my poor rooomate. Whatever, her name is Jolene, so it doesn’t even matter. It’s basically her fault.

That’s enough creativity for one night.

I swear I had posted this before, but in my rampage of cooking chicken and drinking wine and demanding Ellie Goulding last night, I guess not! I’m giving myself three more minutes of computron time before I go tackle something else. Golly, being productive is HARD WORK.

Ha. Maybe I’ll do my voice final. Maybe I’ll do a handstand. Emphasis on the latter. Yahoo!

Fleet Foxes - White Winter Hymnal

I was following the… I was following the…
I was following the… I was following the…
I was following the… I was following the…
I was following the… I was following the…

I was following the pack
All swallowed in their coats
With scarves of red tied ‘round their throats
To keep their little heads
From falling in the snow
And I turned ‘round and there you go
And Michael, you would fall
And turn the white snow red
As strawberries in the summertime

Citizen Cope - Sideways

These feelings won’t go away 
They’ve been knockin’ me sideways
I keep thinking in a moment that
Time will take them away
But these feelings won’t go away
