Hello readers, how long have you been blogging?
Me? I was using Xanga back in the day, technically still have a Livejournal, and have been using this site on-and-off since 2014, I believe. Shown by that unstable status, I was posting about things I like and would still like here, just not in the most efficient manner. So I’m trying to re-do some of those old posts, add pins, and stuff like that. Hope you enjoy today’s playlist!
And And And “I Want More Alcohol (It Makes Me Sadder)”
I was originally going to do a meme where you post a song for different ideas, and the first one was drugs or alcohol. I don’t even know where the template for that meme is now, but I like this band because the singer sounds like if Will Forte was a singer.
Barrie Gledden “Alarmed”
This was used in an ad for Orphan Black. At the time I said that if somebody asked me what the show was about, I’d shrug, “clones,” and I stand by that. That being said, Tatiana Maslany is incredibly talented!
Agnes Obel “Philharmonics”
This song was used in an odd little Jessica Biel film called The Truth About Emanuel. It’s about an asocial teen (Kaya Scodelario) whom seeks out an peculiar relationship with her new neighbor (Biel). There is a great eerie aesthetic to the movie in part thanks to Obel’s music.
Nine Inch Nails “Heresy”
Technically I didn’t blog about this song, but I did share NIN’s performance at the 2014 Grammys and just wanted to make sure y’all knew of my goth tendencies. Also, I did post a #TBT about how when I was 13, I’d want to arbitrarily belt this tune out but was pretty sure my church-going bestie wouldn’t appreciate it (see next song).
Pigeon John “Life Goes On”
To show what a tolerant little atheist I’d watch the music programs on Christian tv channels. They weren’t all the stale hymns one might expect– a few popular (at least in my day) bands featured included P.O.D., Switchfoot, Chevelle, and Flyleaf. However, there were ads that said abortion causes cancer, so… maybe you kids nowadays can avoid that. 😷
Whew! Cleaning up posts actually kind of feels like clearing your room. I feel a lot lighter and relieved.
Are you keeping old posts?
