Monday Music Madness: Walking on Tightropes

3 Dec

These guys had one of my favorite songs this summer and are coming to Rochester in January – I CAN’T WAIT!!!


You should know Janelle Monae because of her collaboration on Fun.’s track “We Are Young” from earlier this year. This woman just knows how to SING. She also has killer dance moves and a bitchin’ hairdo. I’m jealous.

Yes, I’m avoiding work again because it’s become so immense as we get closer to the end of the semester. However, I’m currently sitting in a booth in the library and a young girl gave me a packet of Smarties with a flyer promoting fun study activities that a student group is hosting during finals week. While I won’t be attending the listed events (sorry, lady – I’ve got sh*t to do), I have already inhaled the sleeve of Smarties. Mmmm…. sugar 🙂


Boom. Monday.


Monday Music Madness: Adele Remixes

26 Nov

Heyo, good people!

I came across these songs and thought I could put them together in a related post. Who doesn’t love a fresh take on a beloved vocalist?

This first one I heard a while ago when I lived in Philly. Childish Gambino is the rap name of Donald Glover a.k.a. Troy from the NBC comedy “Community.” When he first got his start, he was MCDJ but got his current stage name from a Wu Tang Clan name generator. For reference, although the beat is pretty sweet (I’m a fan of rhyming), the language is probably not appropriate for kiddie ears.

This second song I found in the We Are Hunted app on Spotify. Spotify is like Pandora, but you can create your own playlists too. You better believe I have quite a few playlists lined up – especially for doing work and writing papers. Josh Heinrichs puts a Bob Marley spin on Adele that I really dig.

This week is going to be crazy with work, and also crazy awesome. I’ll be sure to post an update as soon as I get the chance to put some thoughts together.

Have a kick-ass week, amigos!
