And just in case you haven't... should check out Arcade Fire's video for "We Used To Wait." Seriously unbelievable. 

If you don't, my heart may break. For real. Go. Now.


Yeah, so I love Yo Gabba Gabba

This video from Yo Gabba Gabba is insanely cute, especially the illustration.

And yes, sometimes I do watch children's shows. And maybe I do have Yo Gabba Gabba on DVD.
It's called a "nanny allowance." Duh...

 I'm going to go practice growing up now.

Look Up!

So I changed my header today, mainly because I felt a little odd seeing myself that much every time I blogged (even though the photographer was great:). 
So, thoughts? I'd love to hear your opinions:)


Music Monday::Arcade Fire

Eek! I have been a terrible blogger, but this will *hopefully* change! I have my computer back (finally), so it's not as inconvenient!
Anyway, let's get reacquainted with another Music Monday (12:46 AM still counts as Monday:)

I started liking Arcade Fire AFTER Arcade Fire became cool. Do you know why Arcade Fire became cool? Maybe this will refresh your memory:

Yup. They're the ones who made us all want to run in a wolf's outfit with a bunch of monsters. They also used this song for the Superbowl and dedicated all the proceeds to Haiti...pretty cool.

Anyway, I liked the song, but never gave the rest of their stuff a listen. But I had the worst ache to buy a CD the other week at Vintage Vinyl (yeah, I'm terrible), and I had heard that their newest CD, The Suburbs, was amazing, so I decided to give it a shot.

First of all, the packaging was amazing. It was shiny and had this great new CD know the one? And it had the look of a record, just shrunk down a ton.

And then I listened to their music and fell in love with their wonderful, mostly upbeat sound.

And then I wiki-ed them and found out it's fronted by a husband and wife, which usually makes things cooler, at least in my opinion.

So I fell hard for the band in their entirety. Have you? If not, it's time.

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones didn't have my favorite song posted yet. Here's "Half Light II (No Celebration)"
