The Orwells - This band has a bit of a Misfits meets Ramones vibe. I've been listening to this album while running or when I'm feeling ragey. It makes me feel better instantly.
The Apache Relay - I heard Katie Queen of Tennessee while listening to a station on spotify, and I was hooked. There isn't a song on the album that I don't love, but I'm really digging #7, Forest for the Trees.
Nikki Lane - She's a little bit country and a little bit rock & roll, and a whole lot bad ass. I'm so sad that I can't go see her play tomorrow here in Dallas. (school! ugh!)
Solange - I'm just gonna throw this out there: I like her better than Beyoncé. It's a really good album, and it gives me the feels.
Louie - Season 4 is on tv now, and I look forward to it every Monday. Usually when I get hooked on a show, I'll record it and watch it later so I don't have to deal with commercials, but I can never wait! (currently writing this during the commercials. ha!) This is going to sound a little dramatic, but Louis CK has gotten me through a really tough month. When I feel like crying I'll watch old episodes of Louie or his stand up, or I'll turn on his stuff on spotify, and I laugh until I feel better.
Orange is the New Black - I binge watched over the weekend. I'm crushing on Taylor Schilling right now. She's so damn pretty.
Today I spent the whole day cooking. I've been really busy, and to avoid eating every meal out I decided to make some stuff in advance. I made this quinoa bake, which I had for dinner, and it was SO good. I also made a brisket using this recipe. I've never made brisket before, but it turned out really tender and juicy. I'm excited to throw it in a cabbage salad. Also, I'm addicted to hummus deviled eggs lately, I made 1/2 dozen of them today as well.
Running. I've been taking advantage of the beautiful trails here in my city, and after about 2-3 weeks of forcing myself to go, I'm now addicted. I had the best run tonite. I ran further (farther? too lazy to give a fuck about grammar right now.) than I ever have before without stopping, and when I was done I wanted to cry. I was so happy and proud of myself.
my summer uniform has been a pair of cut offs, and one of these tanks, and these shoes. One of these days I'll become a real blogger and do an outfit post. ha!
What are you listening to/watching/eating/loving/wearing lately?
