sunday funday

happy mothers day! i don’t mean to brag, but my mom is the most stellar of them all and i’m not kidding. my mom is incredibly fantastic and i love her so much.

on that note i turn to VICE for some words of wisdom about my friends parents:

“still feel about party moms the way I felt as a fourth-grader about teenagers who smoked cigarettes in their cars on the way to school.”

FOOD! all i want is a hamburger. i gave up red meat and bread, but its been a solid 3 weeks so i might give in for one day. relapse?

whats your sunday funday like? are you sleeping or making eggs at noon? either way you need a playlist. i’ve got you covered mrow mrow. it’ll be the most random and awesome playlist ever:

crystal castles “courtship dating”

gotye “bronte” need to fall asleep/feel like crying? this song is one of the most beautiful things i’ve ever heard.

and now that you’re thoroughly depressed listen to some of my favorite songs that have already been posted for an awesome sunday afternoon. live long and prosper.

and my actual favorite song:

 

“the walkmen have a million kids”

a interview with one of my favorite bands, the walkmen. they’re from DC (they went to st. albans and wrote a song called tenleytown), but are now NYC based and used to have their studio on 133rd.

 

I don’t even associate The Walkmen to a walkman anymore.
Yeah, it’s not so bad once you get over it but the first time you hear it, you’re like “who are these chumps?”

If you could redo it, what would you have named yourselves?
You know, we were gonna call ourselves The Murderers but that already existed. Somehow, we didn’t think of The Killers, which is an awesome band name for a terrible band. If we had named ourselves The Killers, it would have been pretty badass.”

“you know those tourists on those red double decker buses? the ones with the camcorders out who appear to be filming everything as it passes by? have you ever wondered what they’re going to do with those hours of mostly really boring footage? in february, pierre ballenegger took a trip to the Big Apple and captured what looks like it must have been a ton of footage of the city — from buses, while walking, on the Roosevelt Island gondola. it turns out with a little patience, music, and creative editing, you can actually get a pretty neat little glimpse of the city.” -via animal nyc
