Be Here Now

It's Just That Simple

Every time I listen to Jessica Long & The New Kind's song Simple, all I can hear is the Yeah Yeah Yeahs song Maps. Seriously listen to Maps and then go listen to Simple its like its the same people. Well honestly it might just be me but whatever I sounds crazy similar to me, and I don't mean the lyrics or music I just mean when I listen to her sing all I can think about is the lead singer Karen O for some reason....

Life is too SHORT!!!

One of the worst things that could have happened to a good friend of mine happened last night. My friend Mollie and her girlfriend Kristene were out in Portland at a park and were gunned down. Unfortunately, my friend Mollie lost her life during these events. She was so young and full of life, only 19 years old, she was a girl I met in my English class last semester. She was sarcastic and full of spunk and we fought like cats and dogs. We worked on papers together and and created a video about Oscar Wilde that I am very proud of. This was an even more striking blow because early into the semester I found out that I actually knew her father. Mario and I had taken a class together the spring semester before, we are both History majors and hated our math class. I want to say that I am so so so sorry about the loss that he has felt. I lost my grandmother a year ago and I know how hard this can be. I want to say that I love and cherished your daughter as a close friend, I know it was one of the hardest things for her to come out to you only a couple of months ago but the fact that you accepted her so easily and readily so how compassionate and understanding you are. This is a hard time for everyone who knew her and I want to say that this will not be easier anytime soon.
Much love and prayer to the family because I know I will miss her greatly! --> This is the video that we made Mollie's voice is at the very end talking about Oscar Wilde's influence on society today.

Please keep Mollie and her family in your prayers. I may not be a very religious person but i will be praying every second to making sure that they catch that son of a bitch who killed my friend and hurt her girlfriend.

 Paul Meany (lead singer)

Went on a Music binge and more music for Heartbeat!

Yeah I don't usually use iTunes purely because they are so expensive and you can find other ways to get great music nowadays, but after finding The Mynabirds and Jessica Long & the New Kind on there I decided to go ahead and give iTunes a second chance. Well its safe to say from the title of this post that yeah I splurged on some music but I don't do this very often! All the songs I'm about to put up have also been added to my playlist heartbeat but everyone should go check these bands out they are wonderfully amazing!

Shuffle- Bombay Bicycle Club
The Night- School of Seven Bells
Typical- We the Living
That's What's Up- Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros

Total and complete History nerd!!!

So I am going to school right now to get my degree in History, I am also obtaining my certification to teach History for middle school! The other day I went out to Barnes and Nobles to see if there was anything interesting to read and I found just that!

I am so excited to read this book I have already read about 30 pages or so of it and it has been a really really interesting read so far. I just love reading about history so if you have any interesting history books you have heard about or have read or even if you are just looking for something good to read leave me a comment at the end of this!

'Breaking Dawn - Part 2' Trailer Decoded

 I just wanted to share this because some of the stuff they were saying was kind of stupid! But thats just me!
'Breaking Dawn - Part 2' Trailer Decoded: MTV News' experts break down the trailer.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2!!!!
Can you feel the love?

Neko Case-Nothing to remember

This song was on the Hunger Games soundtrack, I thought it was a wonderfully beautiful song and right now I think of it as my song, I relate to it very well so enjoy!

Jessica Long & The New Kind

So there is this pretty neat band called Jessica Long & The New Kind they have an EP called Geography that anyone who is a fan of indie music should totally check out there are definitely worth a listen.

If you ever feel the need to have a boohoo session

So as of May 20th, which was a month ago..... I have been broken up with my ex-girlfriend. It sucks and I hated the way things ended but whatever life moves on and you have to find new things and new ways to cope with your stupid life. So in a moment of idiocy I created a playlist of music to help me get out of my boohoo session but instead it kind of just fueled it. As I realized what I was doing I realized I had basically just created a super indie/pop playlist of the music that I love so much! So with that in mind I wanted to share that playlist with you in case someone has broken your heart or even if you are stuck inside on a rainy day and want to listen to some simple very nice music. Now let me remind you I made this playlist after my girlfriend and I broke up so some of it does not really match alot of the other music, it may seem out of place but don't worry it is there for a reason, just go with the music. There are some of the same artists on there but they have multiple songs that I just love and I have been adding to it everyday so at this point the playlist is at over 200 songs, so bear with me as I put all of this up. If I add more music to the list then I will just put a post up that says the title of the playlist (which is called heartbeat) and tell you the name of the songs in the box. Alright well here goes!

Breaking Dawn part 2 - Full trailer HD

When I woke up today I was so excited when I remembered that this trailer was coming out. Although I do not consider myself the most avid fan of the films since half the time I think they ruin the essence of the book, I am very excited for this movie. The final book was my favorite and the third part of the book, which this movie is on was my favorite thing to read. It is exciting to see all the characters I love and all I can hope for is that they get some of the book right for the sake of the fans. Which we all know they will do because they would be crazy to do otherwise.

Katy Perry- Wide Awake
