Jam of the Day: Alessia - "Here"

Over the same Issac Hayes sample used in Portishead's "Glory Box," 18-year old singer Alessia uses her incredible voice to detail what most of us growing up thought of high school parties, that they sucked and we wished were anywhere else.





Yummy beef.


Sexy belly.

You don't get much hotter than him.

Love the beard.


Great smile.

Great everything.


Leather Daddy.

Eyes, nips, chest.



Silver fox.

Probably the most perfect chest I have ever seen.


Gorgeous eyes.




Hey cowboy.


Stunning body.


Sexy beast.

Wouldn't mind cuddling up with him.

Damn baby.

Nothing wrong here.

Lovely fur.


Beefy bull.


Those eyes, drool.

Why do people dress their twins identically?

If the Republicans are vying for the biggest bumper crop of crazies to go up against Hillary Clinton, they have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams.

There are only two days in your life that aren't 24 hours long.

I love how Facebook's translation software translates the French word for earplugs into "corks of ears."

Love this.

Coming in tired to the office on Monday is not a fun thing.

I'm not having a good hair week.

I don't think there has ever been a Mariah Carey song I have liked.

Some people should not have mustaches.

I love when someone gets mad at me for something I didn't do.

For all my science friends.

I dislike attorneys who act like they are the be-all-end-all just because they are an attorney.

I can't believe there is still a holiday for Confederate Memorial Day in some states.

Beards and sour cream do not mix well.

On Scruff, they have an insights tab where you can see how responsive someone is to messages. Is it wrong that I try to make my number as low as possible?

I can definitively say I do not have a foot fetish.

Just because something happens once, does not mean it is going to happen twice.

That horse, lol.

I really need to get my eyes checked.

I hate having to get haircuts.

Even though we are only going away for a long weekend next weekend, I am so ready for a break.

There is such a thing as over-promotion.

While I understand why there are riots going on in Baltimore, I will never understand the looting.


Do you ever have one of those days at work where you have a vague sense of unease all day?

It is impossible for me to chew gum without biting the inside of mouth to shreds.

Yes, I know it is out of pure greed, however, I just can't fathom these politicians that pass legislation that harms our environment.

I don't mind thriller based horror movies, but I really can't stand gory horror movies, especially ones that are just non-stop.

At work, I hate having to follow up with people who were supposed to get back to me. Do your jobs people.


The deplorable app Secret has shutdown. No one sane and nice weeps for it.

I always start phone conversations with "my phone is about to die" just so people don't waste my time.

I love my dentist, but I really dislike going to the dentist.

I hate when my raise is practically negated by the amount of taxes taken out of it.

Your cute for the day.

Lyrics Rattling Around My Brain

"Sit down with emotion
Take the time to feel it
Like a cloud across the mind
Never holding on to
Let it all just belong by

The summer haunts and I fall down
How I'm looking for all will be gone
The summer haunts and I fall down
I'm not looking for a pick up
Message, message, message

I want to love myself
Out in the field I'm kissed by the sun
Away from everyone
I want to catch my breath
I've been slowing get that all abouts
Speaking of empty things just to feel the air
Do not hear my scream

I want to find myself
Down the road like a fog walk
Wave at 2 passers by
They wave back at me
I feel like somebody
I want to make a mess
That be on the road with that loss
With my phone too much
To try and be in touch
With those I don't see enough

And that thought he happy when
This happens so that becomes
Oh he is finished and I am done
Oh, done idea
And that thought he happy when
This happens so that becomes
Oh he is finished and I am done
Oh, done idea

I thought around to let it go
Blood upon my knees as I kneel him down
I thought around to let it go
Blood upon my knees as I need him now

And I'll be happy when."

"Happy When"

Appealing Things

Vampire Willow
George Fitzgerald
Notorious RBG
MK Grands
Getting a good checkup at the dentist
Stir fry made with a filet

Annoying Things

People who chew food with their mouth open
The taste in your mouth after the dentist
Atlanta traffic

Jam of the Day: MK Grands - "Pinnacles"

Gorgeous track from Daniel Cartisano (aka MK Grands) which highlights his distinctive falsetto and brilliant production sense which deftly mixes minimalist and maximilist tendencies. His use of silence is sublime.
