a fumbling play for your heart

A quick post to note that:
a) I've really been into this new single from The Shins' forthcoming album
b) I also love this video, and how it reminds me a bit of The Royal Tenenbaums (partially in how James Mercer is styled, and partially in the family's dysfunctional relationship to him)

get motivated!

I don't believe that it's February for several reasons, including but not limited to the unseasonably warm weather/lack of snow, and also the feeling that it "can't possibly be February already!" But somehow it is February, and all the summer wedding related paraphernalia has started to trickle in which is just a little scary (so! many! weddings!). I have a few friends who have been applying/interviewing for new jobs, or just generally in need of a little kick in the pants to keep them going all week. And so, I made them this fairly cheesy mix to push them forwards. A lot of it also literally moves me forward, because half of these songs are on my running mix! Enjoy the (more than) 8tracks below:
