★ ☆ ✮ ✯ ★ ☆ ✮ ✯Am feeling like the Anoraak album is my new Cut Copy-esque obsession. sounds that can play over and over and over and over endlessly, that i'll never tire of, that i'll force myself to break away from eventually just because addiction is bad. dreamy, grooving layers, danceable beats, blissful background tracks for wherever life's taking you.
The ✯ Beach House tracks are sublime, serene & meaningful. am totally taken by both. taken hard.
Pleasantly surprised by this week's free itunes download, that would be Symphonies by Dan Black. thank you, itunes. Sounds separated by ---- and ----- were this weeks fab new offerings from Urban Outfitter's music mondays. get on that, boys and girls.
You can find MUCH of the music above on http://www.rcrdlbl.com/ FREE.
OH OH OH!
I was sitting at my desk yesterday, writing away (the Summer 1 book already, can you imagine?), when I noticed that every few moments I was totally taken by a heady scent of citrus and spices swirling around my workspace. Finally I said aloud "WHAT IS THAT SPICY ORANGE SMELL!?" It took a bit, but we finally figured it out, it was @the_real_debbie's THIEVES SPRAY.
I was like "thieves huh????" It smells fab but wait 'til I explain its quite cool history... The thieves essential oil blend was crafted based upon a historical tale of thieves in France who protected themselves from the black plague with cloves, rosemary, and other aromatics while robbing those already deceased as a result of the deadly disease. Once captured, said thieves were offered a lighter sentence in exchange for their secret recipe. Today, supposedly, these same herbs & essential oils have been found to be an effective barrier against topical and airborne microorganisms. Young Living’s Thieves oil blend includes an intoxicating mix of clove, cinnamon bark, rosemary, lemon, and eucalyptus. And they say it's been specially blended to offer the same kind of defense as it did in the fifteenth century. I do wonder about its ability to ward off plagues... perhaps swine flu? the_real_debbie's always got cool sh!@ to share...
