Spotify

A friend mentioned this app to me so I downloaded it, and I really like it so I wanted to share!

Spotify is a free music app where you can listen to music you know but also find some amazing new songs or artists.

There are categories to Browse through but you could also choose to Discover, use the Radio, etc. You can follow artists and create your own stations. I can’t wait to explore the app further!

Damn right I support it

“I might not be the same, but that’s not important
No freedom till we’re equal, damn right I support it”

~Macklemore, Same Love

I was in the car a few nights ago when I heard a man rapping on the radio. I don’t generally choose to listen to rap music but the lyrics above, of Macklemore’s song, Same Love, hooked me. I cried when it was done because of several emotions; I was so proud of this guy for singing what he was singing. I was sad that a song even needed to be written about something that seems so easy, equal rights. I thought of people that I know, who still don’t understand how wrong it is to hate and how sad I am for them. I thought about how some people, like myself, are happily in love, sharing their love for each other with the world, and it is the best thing in their lives; haters are robbing this privilege from others.

This rapper is saying that he doesn’t need to belong to a group to support them. It’s about respect for every other person. It’s about empathy for their personal struggles, experiences, and decisions.

I researched Macklemore a little more and found out that he is a small town guy from Seattle. His original thoughts, organic ideas, and a talent to express them have made people want to listen to what he has to say.

Below is a link to the video for the song, which is another incredible piece of art! The video is so well done and inspirational within itself. Click the photo or click here to check it out.

I feel so proud for these artists; they have dedicated their time, emotions, bodies, and probably much more to be a part of this! Bravo and Thank You!

3 things I like today…

1. Pink’s cover of Me and My Bobby McGee: Though she can be a little “too much” for me at times, overall, she is an incredibly talented, authentic, and respectable artist!! This is my favorite thing I have ever seen of hers. (Click the photo to watch the video)

We can’t wait to take our daughter through all the parks, give her a mickey mouse shaped ice cream to get all messy with in the stroller, and dress her up like Tinkerbell! So much magic from one man’s dream!

Favorites of the Grammys 2013!

I am not normally an awards show kind of girl but I like the Grammys because of some of the incredible performances. To see Adam Levine and Alicia Keys vibe off of each other to create this awesome performance was the best experience for me while watching! Alicia on drums really got me!

Watching it again this morning confirmed what I felt last night! I could watch it over and over again! Enjoy….

The Fray at Radio City!!

I had the most amazing time seeing The Fray at Radio City Music Hall!! “Be Still” was unreal; it reminded me of why I am such a devoted fan of this group!! This concert was one of the happiest experiences of 2012 so far!!
