I’m a doodler. It’s like a nervous twitch that I can’t harness and ends up creating crazy stuff amidst notes about things it looks like I’m not, but I swear I am paying attention to. A ton of research has been done on people like me with brains like mine… pretty interesting stuff. (start doodling!!)
Anyhoo, I’m trying this thing out where I sit down with a playlist or album and see what comes out. This is TV on the Radio. My loves of all time.
The Fourth of July is my favorite holiday for a couple of reasons.
1. It doesn’t mess around with trying to make you remember when it is; fourth-of-july.
2. It celebrates eating hot dogs, which is something I rarely get a pat on the back for.
3. Everyone is tan in the photos they take of it, so when you are nostalgically look at photos from this holiday you don’t cringe thinking “Wow, I should have left that scarf completely covering my face!”
I could go on, but I think the music my super-American friends picked out describe my feelings toward it a little better….
