Inspiration:: new music

So I was having a crappy Saturday morning. You know, just your average funk. It was so beautiful outside, though, and after reading Amanda's post the other day, I decided I needed to get out of the house. And I also decided, that I needed some new tunes to cheer me up. So I hopped on the bike, let the crisp autumn air wake me up and flow through my lungs, and headed straight to the Electric Fetus.

I love music. Not the making of it, just the listening to. I also love MPR- and sometimes I get into a rut of just listening to the news or whatever's on the talk station at the time, even if it's not a show I'm particularly interested in. I just get used to the background noise. But, recently, I'm getting out of this and listening to more straight music. It's much better for the creative wheels. So what did I get yesterday? Iron and Wine: The Shepherd's Dog, St. Vincent: Marry Me, Rilo Kiley: Under the Blacklight, Feist: Open Season (okay, I thought I was getting the new Feist, but, well, mistakes happen- it's still a good one).

Yeah, and here's how I spent the rest of the day. Feeling much better now.


  1. Those look like wonderful comfort items. Hope you're feeling better!

  2. I'm going to remember this for the next time I have a funk (if, but it happens). You are inspiring!

  3. i am thanks felicia-

    sarah- yeah, music, definitely the best way to get me in a better mood. (and some nice knitting and fresh baked bread helps too)
