A weird video from Australia... But I like it.

Vance Joy >>> "Riptide"

This song. I have posted it before but I love it so much that I wanted to post it again. The hook... It's addicting.

Autre Ne Veut >>> "Play By Play"

Can I have her guitar? Please?

On a different note, I definitely listen to a bunch of girl rock.

Serena Ryder >>> "Stompa"

Fiesty with a great beat... More for the music than the video.

Banks >>> "Goddess"

You probably know this song but I don't think you've seen the video.

All done in one take. A little bit creepy, but artistic. Definitely one of the more interesting music videos I have seen in a while.

Misty Copeland - be careful. This girl is on your heels.

Sia >>> "Chandelier"

And now we take it back to a good ol' performance video with some blues and great guitar. Perfect for a lazy Sunday.

This dude is awesome. Even Bob Hargrove agrees.

Gary Clark, Jr. >>> "When My Train Pulls In"

And we take it back to one of my favorite running genres - trance. Seriously, have you ever tried it? The songs tend to be ridiculously long, lend themselves well to keeping pace, and allow you to space out enough to forget you are running.

This one isn't too long though. Video is a different one.

Gorgon City
>>> "Here for You"

A little more rock and the first Americans on my list thus far. Never knew I was so Euro.

Wild Cub >>> "Thunder Club""

Video is a little weird but the song is awesome. Makes me think of home and a beach day. Which is fully weird because these kids are from Germany.

The hook is catchy. Not sure if it is his voice or the beat but it gets stuck in your head. Or maybe that's just me.

Milky Chance
>>> "Stolen Dance"

A young kid from Australia... A short video but good music. Just watch out - this kid will do some stuff.

Flume >>> "Holdin On"

A little experiment that I have been thinking of. Haven't been posting on here much because life has been crazy, leaving me little time to spend on the world wide web.

However, one night when one of my dear friends, Adam, and I were hanging out we started perusing music videos and discussed how much of our childhood was spent listening to music and, upon the establishment of MTV and then TRL, watching music videos. For myself, it was before school when I was getting ready, after school when I hanging out with friends.

It wasn't until a trip to Europe where they have Rouge TV - a channel dedicated to music videos 24/7, think MTV2 before all of the MTV reality shows took it over - that I realized how much I missed the creative part of watching what the artist and the art director wanted to express. Hell, there were event awards for these things. [Sidenote: Does anyone else think it is blasphemy that MTV still offers Music Video Awards but does not play music videos?!?]

So I digress... Here is my experiment: A music video a day. Some picked for their music, some picked for their video, and everything on the spectrum in between. Just one a day. Not much time out of the day, but time well spent in my opinion.

If you are not a music and/or music video person, feel free to not hit play. Feedback and suggestions are welcome.

Here is #1... A jam that I love and a video that makes me want to be BFFs with its fashion director.

Mapei >>> "Don't Wait"

Sunflowers are back. Another trend I'm not buying.

If you lived through the first round of the 90s and sunflower covered dresses and skirts, does that disqualify you for subsequent rounds? Isn't one round enough?

Sunday Chill: Some Tunes

Try out this awesome chill song to kick about the house or do some "tune-out the world" running...

Seven Lions = Good Stuff
Ellie Goulding = Good Stuff

How could you go wrong?

Sadly, World Cup Is Over.

But if only we could keep up the football fouls... I would give many more people red cards in bars and get them thrown out.

The biting may be going too far thought.

Because It's Been A While...

Just hit play. Trust me. This song has been my addiction lately.

The entire album has been my running material for the past few weeks and I am a happy girl.

And another should you be so inclined to induldge me...

AG Jewelry kinda Monday.

It's an Ariel Gordon Jewelry kinda day... Makes every Monday better.

P.S. Please ignore the super glue on the middle finger nail. Not the brightest idea and quickest way to mess up a perfectly good gel mani.

I haven't heard the word 'dank" in I don't know how long. But this beer is just that... Dank. See...

The saying is appropriate given that it is Stone Brewery's Enjoy By 04.20.14. I am glad the supply made it all the way to Chicago and that Colorado and Washington didn't get the whole supply because this is a very hoppy, hence, yummy beer.

But it is a beer that is well deserved. I ran a full 8 miles today. And I have 6 weeks to go until my 10-mile race so this is promising that I will be able to run the full 10 miles. I have always been able to pick up any local 5K, but a 10-mile race is a whole other ballgame.

I am using the nike+ app mixed with the Hal Higdon training schedule to train so far. So far, so good. Lots of running and a little bit of cross training (mostly football and CPY yoga). As long as I stay clear of football injuries, I should be on track for a successful summer of monthly races. 

Here's to hoping summer eventually comes...

When my friend tells me it's our biological purpose as women to have children...


and I’m like…

Tell that to Amelia Earhart, Sally Ride, Ellen DeGeneres, Shirley Chisholm, Oprah, Harper Lee, Sonia Sotomayor, Mother Teresa, etc.
