Holly Miranda * Waves

23 Mar

Ive had a major case of the insomnias lately. Which is funny cause I used to be able to fall asleep on the walk over to my bed, way before putting my head on any pillow. Guess things change. So for the past couple nights I’ve been able to fill my time with Draw Something. If you havent gotten on that movement yet, you need to. Its like Pictionary for your iPhone. It’s addicting to say the least and it has caused me to add one more OCD to my list. Clearing every game before going to bed. If you get on the movement, you’ll understand. That is if you don’t already. Tonight though, I needed music. I’m sure I have mentioned this before but one of my favorite things to do in the whole wide world is chill on my couch and listen to music through my headphones. Sometimes for hours on end. Sometimes its new shit, sometimes its old. Sometimes its the same song on repeat, sometimes its an entire album. It’s whatever feels right. Tonight, an old song just found its way back into my world. You know those times when from out of the blue a song you loved so long ago magically comes back into your world and completely consumes you? It’s like a free ticket to a time machine. I love when that happens. Add that to another one of my favorite things in the whole wide world.

Anyways, this song is kinda perfect for a late sleepless night. Mellow vibe, pretty vocals. I’m all about it for the second time around. I am so glad it found me.

Oh and here is my prized Draw Something art piece. I’m using my blog as a fridge. It deserves to be displayed.

Yeah, I know, I know. Its been a while. More than a while, actually. More like f’n forever. But hey, lets not dwell on the past and focus on the now. Right? Yeah? Ok, cool. Now that we got that out of the way. Here I am. Posting on my blog, buuuuuut what I’m really supposed to be doing is searching the world wide webs for songs to add to my weekly playlist over here. (I haven’t completely fallen off the dark side of the moon. You can still find me in the world of blogs) Anywho, like I said, I’m supposed to be searching, but instead I found this song and have yet to take it of repeat for the past 20 minutes. Since it has distracted me from my extensive search, I had to figure out a way to justify listening to it one more time. So, why not write a blog about it? And here I am. Writing. On my blog. Hopefully, I’ll be able to make it more of a regular thing. Even if I fail though, thank you for staying fresh….

Side note: In my time away, I finally learned how to embed the song in the post. I have debuted it below. Annnnd if you right click and save as on the link, you’ve got yourself a new song. If you like it of course.

One more thing. The test of a true artist (in my opinion) is if they can blow a recorded version of their song outta the water with a live performance. Sadly, we all know not everyone can conquer this feat. But then there are the ones that do. Ariane Moffatt and her band kinda kill it in this video. I’m currently fighting an inner battle of which version I love more. I am,however, leaning towards the live drums….
