Use Somebody, Part II

OMG. Chills.

Thanks, Lisa!

Use Somebody

Paramore cover of Kings of Leon’s “Use Somebody”

I really like her voice.

Hot Air Balloon Ride

A fun analogy from random insights over dinner with friends in Winthrop:

Love might be like a hot air balloon, but there is one only parachute.

A cute thought 🙂 with a lot of substance.

Dance Forever

OMG, I can’t believe I only just realized this was The Office wedding. HAHAHAHAHA brilliant.

“Did you see this? It was on Youtube.”

“I bought those boat tickets the day I saw that Youtube video. I knew we’d need  a back-up plan. The boat was actually Plan C. The church was Plan B, and Plan A was….marrying her a long long time ago….pretty much the day I met her.”

Single Ladies, Put a Ring On It.

If you want to stay happily married, do what Beyonce did – get with someone who’s at least five years older, and not as smart:

A Cherry On Top

A great pick-me-up song with kick-ass lyrics. Listen:

Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.

Joseph Addison

路就这样开始走

One of my favorite C-pop songs ever.

The song was inspired by the Ang Lee movie “Lust Caution,” and the title, 落叶归根, is a Chinese idiom translated as “falling leaf returns to root.”

Youtube the music video, it’s pretty cheesy: young boy is a violin prodigy who plays for audiences on the street. Little boy meets little girl who hands him a pretty leaf and then leaves without a word…until, years later, they find each other again. But then, when she has to say goodbye, I think she gets hit by a car…?! The music video is deliberately vague, but anyway, it’s really beautiful music.

我的爱像落叶归根
家唯独在你身边

Rain Storms Turnin’ Every Good Thing To Rust

This song was featured in the “Where the Wild Things Are” trailer. Love the sound.

God creates men, but they choose each other.

Niccolo Machiavelli
