Obsessions Of The Week - 11/1/13
40 Dogs (Like Romeo and Juliet) - Bob Schneider
My roommate, Jimmie, sent me this song the other day on Spotify. This is a rare occurrence for him, so I knew it was kind of a big deal. He knows what I like and he didn't fail me on this. This song would fit perfectly in a Teen Drama a la One Tree Hill or The OC... AKA it's right up my alley. So basically, if you're like me and still dream about Peyton & Lucas or Summer and & Seth, this song and Bob Schneider are probably your new favorite things. "We're like good times that haven't happened yet, but will."

This is a candle. This is not a song or an artist or a sports team. This is a candle that smells like heaven. It actually smells like walking by an Abercrombie & Fitch but nowhere near as overpowering. Bath & Body Works' site describes it as "The warming essence of cedarwood, lavender, and oak come together in the late day chill of autumn at dusk." Sure. This candle smells like clean boys and fall, so you're welcome.

"The Sad Playlist" - aka I Would Be Sad
Currently 209 Songs and 15+ hours long, this collaborative Spotify playlist is not for the faint of heart. For some reason I got it in my head last Fall to start a playlist of all the “sad” songs I could think of. I recruited some help, via Lauren, Kelsey, and Jordan and a few texts to some other friends. Through this, I've discovered and fallen in love with a lot of great, albeit gut-wrenching songs. Whether you're trying to get Cheesy Sad (Picture - Kid Rock & Sheryl Crow), Introspective Sad (Oh My Sweet Carolina - Ryan Adams & Emmylou Harris) or full on Bathtub Sad (He Stopped Loving Her Today - George Jones), we've got you covered. Together, we've created a monster... a really sad one.
I've been in a weird mood lately (this week) and this incredibly depressing playlist has been the only thing I've wanted to listen to.
DISCLAIMER - Not to be listened to while driving alone, especially if it's raining.
