  1. Shameover and/or Look What I Can Do!

    October 4, 2011 by parry

    Do you guys hate me? I know I’ve been a bad blogger. And I feel shame. SO MUCH SHAME.   Does this adorable picture of a sad and shameful corgi help? Because that’s how I feel.

    Adorable and shameful.

    But seriously, let’s talk about this. I’m sorry I’ve been bad at keeping up. I’ve been meaning to write you. It’s all I think about when I go to bed at night. Okay, not ALL I think about. Sometimes I think about brilliantly clever things I could have/should have said at one point or another during the day and then brainstorm ways to insert them into future conversations. Sometimes I think about super-stylish outfit options for the coming week, even though you and I both know that I’m lucky if I make time to shower, much less iron a flouncy blouse. Sometimes I think about how hungry I always am and consider leaving bed for a string cheese snack. Sometimes. But other times, I think of you, Peoplethatoccassionallyreadmyblog. So take comfort in knowing that. K?

    In other news, I have been BUSY! And this is where I shamelessly plug my very first marquee feature EVER for Blurt Magazine Online. I was super lucky to be able to interview Alec Ounsworth from Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, who just released a new album (Hysterical) after a lengthy hiatus. If you like me, or if you like music, Alec Ounsworth and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, you should read it (please and thank you):

    Is There Hope After Hiatus?

    The indie sensation garners applause with the release of its 3rd studio album. But Alec Ounsworth doesn’t care what we think anyways.




  2. Look What I Can Do!!

    July 13, 2011 by parry

    Oh hey friends! Do you guys like music?


    Do you guys like to read about new albums before you hear them so that other people can tell you what they think is/is not cool?

    YEAH?! Perfect.

    I’ve been writing album reviews for a badass music magazine called Blurt, and I mean, what is a blog for, if not occasional, shameless self-promotion? Bear with me. Music has been a big part of both my personal and professional life for as long as I can remember (granted my short-term memory is somewhat clouded since I pray to Jah on the reg), so I’m pretty excited to have the opportunity to give ya’ll my humble opinions on some of my favorite bands:

    Bon Iver: Bon Iver

    Tedeschi Trucks Band: Revelator

    Black Lips: Arabia Mountain

    Art Brut: Brilliant! Tragic!
