THIS. ALL OF THIS. Especially #4 (Eddie!) but all of it.
#tbt: Hoppípolla — Sigur Rós
Perhaps Sigur Rós’ most commercially successful song, “Hoppípolla” (Icelandic “hopping into puddles”), is an ethereal and happy-feelings song. It was released back in 2005 on their album Takk (Icelandic “thanks”). Its slow, melancholic but soothing sounds flow smoothly, caressing your ears and telling you it’ll all be okay. Like most of Sigur Rós’ songs, this one will pluck your heartstrings and have you mesmerized.
Among my all time favorites
The Blasters, “Marie Marie”
Unfriendly reminder that in America it’s reasonable to say an unarmed black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a white kid shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.
I do this roughly every couple of weeks or so because one thing goes wrong and then the next thing and then all of the things go wrong and I’m an adult and I can handle my momentary stress ANY WAY I CHOOSE BECAUSE YES I AM AN ADULT SHUT UP GREAT NOW I HAVE TO GO LOCK MYSELF IN THE WALK-IN
You know how you have that day when you just assume everyone hit themselves in the head with a rubber mallet and then came to work? Yeah. It was that kind of day.
I have chef coats now for work with name and title on them (that were free, from the company!) and that’s nice and much better than the three plain black coats I had.
Wife asked me, “why do you keep the plain ones? You have professional looking coats now!”
Because while my new ones represent me and the pride I have in myself and my job, the others represent three additional days of laundry not having to be done.
