365 Crashed and Burned

I had a feeling it wouldn’t last when I started struggling on Day 10 but in the end it was Sundance that truly killed my 365 project. But that’s okay. Failure is acceptable. Plus, I have a published article so it is not so bad. Will still write up my likes here and there but put a little less pressure on myself to write a post every single day. Have a few posts coming in during the next few weeks that I failed to pitch in time for other outlets so will just add them here.


Day 16: The Film Score for 2005’s Pride and Prejudice by Dario Marianelli

Another day, another short(er) post. This time it is because I am on a flight to Utah headed to Sundance and I have a raging headache, can’t find my Advil and there is a cute but occasionally screechy child directly behind me.

Day 13: “Don’t It Take Personal” by Monica

Life is just really busy guys, I will do better tomorrow, I promise. But here is another wonderful jam. This song speaks to my soul, I feel like I have one of these days every 2 to 3 days. Sigh, life of an introvert. Today’s item is the song “Don’t Take It Personal” by Monica. Monica was such an It Girl, I would sing along to her songs and think I was hot shit. Her voice is so good and she is so unsung. It is a bloody shame. She was putting grown singers to shame with her vocals at 16. This is just one of her iconic hits.

Day 11: “Lost and Found” by Lianne La Havas

So I totally forgot about this so this is rushed and will be another short one but one of my favorite songs is “Lost and Found” by Lianne La Havas. I just like sad things. I will do Lianne La Havas as a full thing tomorrow with a bit about why I love this song though I honestly don’t truly really understand why. It is like Sally Sparrow says in theĀ Doctor Who episode “Blink”; sad is like happy for deep people. Or something. Anyway here it is below. Enjoy. Sort of. It’s a lot. It is actually my favorite of her songs though.
