This Friday Neon Trees played three small/intimate shows at Velour in Provo… & guess who was front & center for one of them? You got it…ME!!! It was me!!! & it was amazing. I took a gazillion pics on my iPhone & figured I’d put them up on the blog because I don’t know what else to do with them so enjoy!
Long time no blog eh? yeah… I’m horrible. I know. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve sat down to blog & have even started some posts only to stop mid-way through and be like… oh… I just. don’t. want. to.
Let’s hope that phase is over. To get back into the groove of things I decided to do a music monday post and share some of my favorite songs I’ve been lovin in 2012. If you don’t know what Spotify is then you are missing out on the greatest free thing known to man. It’s a completely free music player, and has pretty much any song you could want to listen to. You can make your own playlists, & in my opinion, it’s better than all the other similar music websites ie. grooveshark. I would’ve shared my Spotify playlist on here but you have to be a Spotify user to listen to the songs… so join Spotify & we won’t have this issue.
Anyways… lets jam.
Avalanche City- Love Love Love … I’m a little late to the party cuz I just discovered Avalanche City but I’m already in love
Mumford & Sons- I Will Wait … what M&S song am I not infatuated with? They can do no wrong
The Shins- Simple Song … I’ve listened to The Shins since middle school & I still can’t get enough
James Vincent McMorrow- We Don’t Eat … love this song
The Vaccines- If You Wanna … infectious indie rock. their music takes me back to another decade
Foster the People- Warrant … love this whole album, can’t wait for them to come out with some new stuff
Ed Sheeran- Give Me Love … this Ron Weasley look-a-like is amazing. He’s my new John Mayer. And THAT is saying somethingTwo Door Cinema Club- Something Good Can Work … love love love them. this is my go to car cd
Bombay Bicycle Club- Shuffle … their album is very chill but oh so good
Graffiti6- Free … I don’t know why this song isn’t more popular! Another great album
The Black Keys- Gold On the Ceiling … If you don’t love The Black Keys, then I don’t even know what to do with you… everybody loves them
Awolnation- Kill Your Heroes …Don’t let their slightly screamy sound scare you away. They’re the bees knees
Imagine Dragons- Radioactive …I’m so glad I went to their shows while they were free! Now they’re making it big & I couldn’t be happier for them!
Obviously I LOVE music, so if there are any songs out there that you’re loving right now, let me know in the comments! I’m always looking for new stuff. All the songs I chose are kind of from a similar genre so I might start doing a few of these posts every now & again to share different kinds of music. Cuz lets face it, as much I might try to hide it, we all know I also listen to 1D, Pitbull, & Ke$ha. I simply can’t resist. It’s good to be back!
The Olympics are over. Now what am I going to do with my life? I watched every single primetime Olympic event, if not live, at least later on my DVR. I still watched even though nearly every event was spoiled for me before it aired. You couldn’t go on google, Twitter, Facebook, or even Pinterest for crying out loud without seeing a spoiler. Even still, the Olympics were amazing.
And what about Nathan Adrian? I talked about him before the Olympics began and how hopeful I was for him in these games. Umm… he definitley delivered for team USA. Good job Nathan, I knew you were destined for greatness. He’ll be on the Today Show tomorrow morning’ so look out! And… One Direction in the Closing Ceremonies? What? From the X Factor to Olympic performance? Crazy! Good thing I blogged about them so you’d all know who they were right? Am I right? 🙂
Someone on Twitter, but I can’t remember who, tweeted – funny that Adele wasn’t there, what if if she just showed up out of the blue, uninvited? haha I thought that was purty hilarious. I’m easily entertained. Best moment of the closing ceremonies? Spice Girls. Hands down.
They all looked amazing & check out this awesome gif I found…
Doesn’t that look like so much fun?! If I had rockstar dreams, they would be about riding on the top of a car singing with my hair blowing in the wind. They showed some clips of the athletes during their performance and they weren’t even getting into it. I thought, you don’t deserve to be there. You may have won a gold medal in women’s soccer but, I win a gold medal for having a good time during a Spice Girls performance. After the ceremonies were over I think I went & listened to “Spice Up Your Life” at least five times. If you didn’t do that too, something must be wrong with you.
