Asians on the Map – Honey Cocaine

This is Gold. Asian pride (especially when it slows down and honey plus the guy starts talking). We golden.


Wait It Out – Imogen Heap

“Everybody says time heals everything”

This is an amazing song which just about captures the existential mood I’m in.
It perfectly sums up the twists and turns of life, sorrows and endless periods of waiting in an array of electronic beats paired with Imogen’s soft but haunting vocals.

Finals will be over soon. These three weeks are trials upon trials but I know I’ll pull through; I’ve certainly done it before and rarely ask for extensions because I’m usually pretty efficient. Time to work now.


Miyazaki Piano compilation from all the films!

This right here is currently my jam. Listening to it while writing papers and doing readings has never been so relaxing. Going through a bit of nostalgia and a few ruffles in my life with a box of tissues doesn’t hurt so much now. Makiko Hirohashi (who did the arrangement) is my heroine.


Listening to Tw…

Listening to Two Suns album by Bat for Lashes [My favorite lyrics from each song]

“Drive my heart drive my heart into the burning heart’s desire, lonely dreams do you hear me calling in my blue dream? a dream of love is a two heart-ed dream” -Sleep Alone

“If I had you here we are here together, I’d be boy and you’d be girl, beautiful” “calling moon on moon shoot the big bad hand that will track me to your door so I don’t see no more” “This wide world is a big bad hand pushing on my back do you understand? …where’s my bear to lick me clean feed my soul milk and honey” -Moon on Moon

“Under our blue skies our movie skies I found a home in your eyes and we’ll never be apart” “When the fires came the smell of cinders and rain perfumed almost everything we laughed and laughed and laughed and in the golden blue the car you took me to and set fire to my heart” -Daniel

“Look at this and look at us wonder all we’re wondering I don’t like to say we’re lost drive my best with needing us build a light into the sky…looking down make me a queen, all the sorrow that I’ve seen” “If I ever come back down find a man who takes me back through the wound and through the war until the time that came before” “Mother father’s childless woe, arrow of light for every boy and girl” “Peace of Mind” -Peace of Mind

“Be proud when you die when you wand’rer glitter your eyes for the town tell every last boy that you’re my man, try not to let you down til the siren come calling driving me evil, evil I’m a heart-breaker loved you the same way I do but I’ve got so much wickedness and sin” -Siren Song

“There’s a place in Moscow there’s a place in Moscow it’s not a place I’ve seen but I’ve been there in a blue dream down the ocean road past a sign that says good love town to a darkness where the stars do drown, where the stars need to be free” -Pearl’s Dream 

“This queen of hearts dancing on her throne but I need sorrow like baby sorrow is my drug if I ever find that place they call good love” -Good Love

“Show me moonlight, on the sunrise, I’ve seen so many planets dancing, I’ve seen too many people hiding, show me sunset and I won’t forget I am one of two planets dancing, I am one of two planets dancing” -Two Planets

“Never fall in love with attention ’cause you can see with your own eye all the pretty faces and sorry words will take away your pride”  -Traveling Woman

 

Bat For Lashes is truly magical in this album. Every song verse sounds like tangible rich imagery from a dream combined with adages and fairy tales. Goodnight world. Remember to be magical.
