the lumineers “ho hey” i’m such a music snob and i hate when other people have to show me a song, but the other day one of my good friends showed me this song and i completely fell in love with it.

air france “it feels good to be around you” can’t remember if i’ve posted this or not. its been a staple in my playlists since august. favorite! download

major lazer “get free (featuring amber of dirty projectors)” i’ve had a special place in my heart for major lazer since the early days of college and before diplo sold his soul chris brown and usher. the new album is a year overdue, but this song is so fantastic and worth the wait. ugh so good… GET FREE!

walk the moon “anna sun (fool’s gold remix)” brooklyn remix! solid.

santigold “disparate youth”  just… watch it. santigold is great. note: for all the non music snobs, did you know she was in the duck sauce “barbara streisand” video (aka greatest video ever as far as cameos go)?

“how to change cheap clear hooch from terrible to tolerable”

still in college/poor in queens, brooklyn, or south bronx? just buy cheap vodka and activated carbon

“activated (or active) carbon is the sixth element, carbon, that’s been processed to be extra porous. all of those microscopic holes mean it soaks up toxins and impurities. this is why it’s found in all kinds of liquid filters—including those pro distilleries employ to make their high-end booze.”

so unbelievably cool

people who judge my single post college lifestyle

“Listen, I take care of myself. I am in better shape than when I was bonging kegs in college and eating Penn Station for lunch. Sometimes I even cook. My refrigerator usually has more than hot sauce, celery and a NuvaRing in it. With that said, there is no shame in standing naked in your kitchen dipping french bread into mug full of olive oil.
I have a full-time grown-up job. I have coworkers and friends at work. I make money. I pay my bills. Some weeks my bar tab is more than my grocery tab, but I am not saving for a fancy new dresser or a light switch cover. This does not make me irresponsible; it makes me 27 and single and happy.”

beer of the day

resin IPA by sixpoint brewery brooklyn, new york

“We zeroed in on the botanical structure of the hop cone to get to the essence of this beer. When hops are at their peak maturity, their cores swell up with a sticky, golden, resinous substance that is the flavor you crave from an IPA. WIth an IBU of 103 and ABV of 9.1%, Resin can be loosely described as a double IPA — but rarely do Sixpoint beers adhere to any strict style demands.” –sixpoint brewery
