Continuing on my dubstep theme for the week:

Oh wow.  approx 5 mins after I announced I’m not into dubstep, this comes on.  I’m addicted.

Ruby Frost’s voice is gorgeous and I can’t stop listening to this song!


So after announcing this wkend that I am not into dubstep, I ended up spending way too much time on youtube watching dubstep vids.  I decided I can’t just listen to dubstep music but I can watch people actually dubstep! Like this dude…

And that’s fo real! No effects! Check him out on Ellen

This isn’t that new anymore but I’m obsessed!

I finally read his Brooklyn Mag cover article so I’ve had this playing on repeat.

Note: the line “the clothes don’t make the man its the man that makes the clothes”.  Did you know he has his own “in-house” design team (yes, a la Gaga)? Though I find this line rather gratuitous because I don’t think it fits in the song, I kind of appreciated it after reading the article.

Her look totally freaks me out, especially considering she’s only 24 (?).  I do enjoy her sound though… that breathy, gloomy jazz/pop.  However you describe it, I think this song is undeniably great!

Why Me? Because…

1. Jj is well Jj – between the bf & me we got that covered.

2. This song!! It’s [on of] my [many] song!! Nov, you can tell ’em why 😉

P.S. so it’s originally Jessie’s on a vacation far away.  JJ lead singer changed it to Elin’s (her name, obvs) & we would change it to Jenny… It became my (our) song in Morocco – def far away!

In preparation for my trip to Colombia (2 days!!) I’m trying listen to some of the hits down there so I’m not totally outta the loop at the wedding.  Honestly, I don’t know if this is making it big or not but by the looks of the video I want to say… No.

Either way, it totally puts me in the mood to dance & have some beach drinks!!

Warning… I loved this song & am a little saddened now that I saw the video, so maybe just hit play & don’t look at the screen.  This guy is like a little wannabe MJ with a hint of Freddie Mercury (the big mouth mostly) – which was the 1st comment I saw on YouTube & so accurate!!

This needs no intro… so enjoy.

I’ve been waiting all morning for this to finally be released & be able to post it. But… I’m kinda disappointed.  It’s like thriller with pregnant ladies instead of zombies & Solange is only in it for 10 secs.  I love the song but the video… I just don’t get :/

I don’t know what to do guys… I do actually have posts lined up but WordPress’ photo uploader thing is on strike & refusing to acknowledge the tons of pictures I recently uploaded on to my comp.

Therefore I can’t tell you about the delicious salsa verde I made yesterday, or the yummy cucumber-yogurt sauce I created to accompany our Sunday night lamb chops, or the butter Jj decided to make on a whim.

I can, however, leave you with this great song & cool Drew Barrymore-directed Best Coast video for Wednesday… (I posted on G+ & my tumblr yday but I bet most of you didn’t see either of those things)

Ugh, apparently I can’t do that either. Go here & watch it – its worth it! & so is the behind the scenes video.

“There’s something abou you girl, and it’s rather strange” – Chromeo, When the Night Falls ft. Solange.

Fav line! And also funny bc I do sometimes really like Solange & her style, but sometimes I just think “ohh, girl, that’s whack!”. So yea, there’s something about her but there’s something sort of strange too…

This is off last year’s Business Casual but they’re still promoting it with new remixes.



I love Hercules & Love Affair so I’m really enjoying this remix!! It also sort of modernizes it taking out a bit of Chromeo’s new age-y sound.
