Ally: Morning, everyone! Sorry about the lack of posts this week. There was a lot going on with work and home for the both of us so we decided we needed to put away our brilliance for a week (WordPress just told me I spelled “brilliance” wrong. Amazing).
Sad news of the Week
L-A and I actually found a concert that we could enjoy together. It’s happening in the same place! At the same time!
L-A mentioned something about “The Cure” and “New Order”. I don’t know these people (I half kid, don’t hate). Looking down the list however I spot “Yellow Wolf” as Official Intern Krista refers to him. Can we talk about how he’s not ahead of Macklemore? Street cred means nothing these days to all the kids.
Sadly, as I am seven months pregnant, I don’t feel the timing is really ideal for us. This is tragic.
Trunk Muzik Returns
This brings me to my next favourite, and will likely bring you to move along to another website! Yelawolf has released Trunk Muzik Returns! Aren’t we all just so excited?
You can download the entire mixtape here.
Rain gear that I can actually get down with
One of my favourite people posted on her Facebook this week about a new line in rain wear from Trout.
This is my absolute favourite:
It’s oversized, so you can pair with that chunky spring sweater, and reversible double-breasted. Jane’s (the friend I speak of) sister Sarah helped with the design of the jacket. This means I basically hang-out with celebrities.
At this point I believe it is only available at Holt Renfrew in Toronto and Vancouver.
Taylor Swift impresses me just a little bit this week
I think I’ve told you all before how much my son loves Taylor Swift. At age three, he’s determined that she is right up there with Batman and Spiderman. I won’t lie, I dig the Taylor as well. He was so excited the other day when I picked him up from daycare to inform him that a brand new Taylor Swift video was awaiting him upon his return home. We watched it 18 times that evening. The Swift is pretty adorable throughout, but big props for her t-shirt and the way she’s rocking that bandana all Coachella styles:
Crappy southern-influenced hip hop video of the week
You knew it was coming. Here is Yelawolf’s F.A.S.T. Ride video. I asked L-A the other day if the fact that I was the only person she knew who actually knew about Yelawolf made me impressive. She said, and I quote, “I’m still trying to figure that out”. I think she’s intimidated by my superior taste in music. That must be difficult for her.
L-A: I had favourites this week, I swear I did. There were things I loved. But all of them have gone the way of the dodobird in my head. I promise I’ll have my shit together next week. My lack of shit-toghetherness on the blog front this week probably has a lot to do with what’s going on in my life. I mean, the usual work stuff, but also the news that I’m leaving town. Yes, c’est vrai. I’m moving out of Halifax.
It turns out I like my husband more than the city, my friends and my job. But fear not, we can make this blog an Ontario-Nova Scotia joint. Because Ally will always be my LC and let’s face it, it’s not like I ever drive to the suburbs now.
Also, we promise a fourth blogiversary party before I skeedaddle.
As for the favourites I can remember:
1. Giving me all the feelings
VERONICA MARS, I AM A MARSMALLOW! The movie is actually happening! Go watch the video here (because WordPress won’t let me embed flash) and pray to god that Rob Thomas and company deliver and don’t disappoint in the way Sex and the City did (because those movies forever ruined the series for me)
2.Giving me all the feelings, the biased edition
I honestly do love these new tourism ads, even if I do work for the people who made them. I got goosebumps the first time I watched this one. And I’m already trying to plan some before I go away road trips with Intern Krista (what up, maple sugar! We are coming for you!)
3. The Uncategorized Jam of the Week
You guys, I don’t even know what to call this, but I’ve been listening to it since it was in last week’s Carrie Diaries (best part of that show is the 80s soundtrack).
