there is a new song on the radio. i think coldplay? not sure, it sounds nice, but too lazy to go find out what it is. i’m one of the few people who still have a legit FM radio in their room and actually listens to it. it’s on right now. and it’s very cold and rainy outside. my bed is unmade, i’m lying in it, and my hair and makeup from last night are still in tact.
it’s all very nostalgic, yeah?
all this time i’ve been playing songs he loves on my computer as we speak— the same tunes i practically love also;
“Unforgettable” Nat King Cole
“Moon River” Andy Williams
“Everybody Loves Somebody” Dean Martin
“Somewhere, My Love” Ray Coniff Singers
these are really some great, loving, melodic tunes. i love my indie rock, but not even those songs can touch on the feelings these classic songs bring about in you.
all i want for Christmas is my grandpa to get better soon.
a nice, cold day at Peet’s with the family, decent outfit and Mumford and Sons. yeah, i am slowly getting into them.
i kind of flinch at myself for getting into artists too late— like i did with Arcade Fire and now Mumford and Sons, AND possibly Florence and the Machine— but the thing is, i like finding music at my own pace. there’s plenty of other musicians i’d like to tackle first before moving on to others recommended (usually by my friend Cogo, and i do spite him for getting into the stuff first). the funny thing is that none of my other friends really like indie rock. it’s odd and sometimes dismaying how i can’t really talk to them about Arctic Monkeys, The Bravery, MGMT, Kasabian, whatever on a daily basis. ugghhhh. whatever, it makes me happy, my music. DON’T EVER TAKE IT AWAY FROM ME.
i am also missing the City. this cold weather back in Concord is making me miss San Francisco so much. then again, i’m very glad to be back in Concord. i pretty much hate suburban life, but for some reason Concord doesn’t really feel like it. i guess it’s probably just ‘cause it’s my hometown. i am convinced that everywhere i go will make me happy somehow. San Francisco: the life; Concord: family and friends.
