Addicted to Game of Thrones

Well, the first step when it comes to addiction is admitting you have a problem right? In that case then I can truly say I am addicted to HBO’s Game of Thrones. It all started in the Fall on one boring and wet and rainy weekend, during which I had watched the first two seasons in their entirety. Then I had to wait, just like everybody else, for Season 3 to begin. And good lord has it been one crazy season! My girls (and favorite characters on the show) Khaleesi and Aria have kicked up their bad-assery multiple notches. Some more Starks (my babies!!) have unfortunately passed away. And it seems now that King’s Landing has its very own Countess of Dowager in Lady Olenna of House of Tyrell. She is essentially now the new queen of sass in the show and I LOVE it!

As a way to cheer myself up on the account of tonight being the finale of Season 3, I’ve decided to try and post a little montage of some of the funniest things I’ve seen related to this season of GoT.

I had the wonderful privilege of being able to see The xx while they were in town last week. Comprised of Jamie Smith, Oliver Sim, and Romy Madley Croft, this indie-pop/dream-pop band that hails from London has some of the most relaxing and soothing to the senses (without dulling them) music. Their songs “Islands“, “Intro“, and “Shelter” are by far my favorites and I was so giddy as I heard the start up for each of them. Also, the light show that accompanied their performance was purely mesmerizing and I love the fact that they are a band that truly sounds just as good live as they do while listening to their album.

I highly recommend that y’all give them a listen!

Happy Record Store Day!

Happy Record Store Day!

I really don’t want to sound pretentious here, but without a doubt music sounds so much better on vinyl. So what better day to snag some new vinyl than on Record Store Day? Just a few blocks from my apartment is the House of Records and today I am definitely going to try and swing by. Y’all should check out any independent record store near yourselves too!

Also, check out pitchfork.com for more about the holiday!

Hope y’all are having a great weekend!

New Girl

I’m sure all of y’all have at least heard about the show New Girl, starring Zooey Deschanel. Along with Parks and Recreation and Once Upon a Time, this is by far one of my favorite shows currently on t.v. The humor behind the show is fantastic and there have been several moments (and I mean SEVERAL) to where I’m laughing so hard I look like a seal clapping.

As much as I love Zooey’s character Jess, the three main guys in the show are so funny in their own way. There’s Nick, the lovable one who has a guy-next-door thing going on and tends to have some money issues. Schmidt is the OCD, overtly sexual and douche-y one of the bunch, and Wilson I consider to be the voice of reason among the group as he seems to be the most sensible.

To get to the point, today is quite an awesome day. Earlier Zooey D. tweeted that New Girl got picked up by its network for a second season. OH YESSSSSS!!!! WOOP, WOOP! 🙂 Sorry for all the crazy all caps but this show is just too good to not get picked up, therefore i’m pretty damn excited.

For those who have never actually watched the show, I am going to present to you some of the best moments of the show. And, no I’m definitely not going to re-watch all these moments, too…. Yeah, I lied. I am totally going to watch my favorite New Girl scenes while doing a little celebratory dance. (:

Prepare to laugh until you seal clap! (: 

Psst…Oh hey, so I wanted y’all to see the clips in better quality than what most of You Tube was offering. So sorry bout all the links needed to click on to see them!

New Girl: Advice (clip)

New Girl: Take a Breath (clip)

New Girl: Cactus (clip)

New Girl: Suppress the Jess (clip)

Now, I know I said the videos weren’t going to be off of YouTube, but I just LOVE this one particular scene! It isn’t really a funny scene but it definitely makes you feel good.(:
