Last night I couldn’t sleep and decided I could listen to “Brandy (You’re a Fine Girl)” on repeat for the rest of my life. I’m pretty sure it’s the greatest pop song of all time. The doooo-doo-doo-doo-doooo intro with the horns sounds almost watery like summer or swimming pools. Then you have this great story about love and whiskey and the sea. And before it ends, there’s the way that Elliot Lurie belts out that part that goes “and Brandy does her best to understand!” that just kills me.
Also, in my insomnia, I discovered Lurie wrote the theme song to Lizzie McGuire.

I already liked this on instagram and facebook, but it’s so great and now it’s gettin’ reblogged too.
I didn’t take a lot of photos this summer with my actual camera, but here are a few from when I remembered that I have said camera.
The Decemberists, “O Valencia!”
So wait for the stone on your window, your window.
Wait by the car and we’ll go, we’ll go.
Happy first day of summer!

Thumbs down about this heat. (I guess it looks like I’m pointing at myself, but whatever.) I have my feet in the bathtub (filled with nice cold water), but it’s still super hot in my stupid apartment. I also had a popsicle and now my teeth are blue.
Summer, summer, summertime to help us forget 9-to-5’s.
We have got to leave all that behind.
I just sent in my final lit paper and my final website project. It’s the end of the school year officially and I’m going out for fries and beer. Goodnight, internet!
I am going here tomorrow! I have never been before, but I here it’s awesomesauce. Unfortunately I’m starting to feel sick and I have a paper due at midnight tonight. Leave me cute pictures of cats to make me feel better!
Oh, so I saw the Old 97’s at the Seaport yesterday and it was amazing and totally worth missing the fireworks. Yeah, stupid fireworks were over the Hudson and you definitely cannot see them from the Seaport. Whoops. Spent the rest of the day/night at Union Square/walking all over the East Village and on a roof/walking all over the Financial District.
