Sleeping all day, staying up all – niiiight

Geez it’s been forever since I’ve posted in here. I’ve started about twenty different posts in the past few months, but as is my style, never got around to finishing them.

However!

This weekend Alex went up north and I stayed back here in LA, which resulted in a weekend full of cleaning, chick flicks, shopping, and blogging, hooray!

I have a bunch of short, tumblr-style posts coming up. Sorry for the lack of decent, coherent writing (been doing too much of that for work, anyway!)

First subject on the docket…

I was going through my iTunes the other day, making a bunch of playlists which included songs from high school. (Ahhh, the good ol’ days of New Found Glory, Yellowcard, blink 182, The Postal Service…so many forgotten songs!) One of the most amusing parts was reliving the brief emo phase that took over Vista High in 2004. Who remembers the song “Ohio Is For Lovers” by Hawthorne Heights? Oh man, most emo (screamo) song ever. Followed closely by “My Immortal” by Evanescence. I used to watch music videos every morning while getting ready for school…watching these videos now makes me feel 14 all over again, haha.

Other videos that bring me back:
“Ocean Avenue” Yellowcard
“Mr. Brightside” The Killers
“I Miss You” blink 182
“Helena” My Chemical Romance

And finally, a high school-era video I’m not overly embarrassed to post here:

Loved Hot Hot Heat (still do)…thanks to my good friend Jocelyn! Also, wonder if the “Goodnight Goodnight” video was inspiration for OK Go’s “End Love” video?

Ok, I think that’s enough music videos for one day. This might be one of those posts with a dozen broken links a year from now.

Hopefully I’ll be back to post again soon!
