We are loving this track from Canadian dream pop band Young Galaxy. This is from their fourth album entitled Ultramarine. This track makes us want to take a long drive through the city at night, but since it was the middle of the day and we had lunch plans at our favorite sandwich shop we settled for a shoot in the park with a bright yellow poncho.
Lots of love from sunny Colorado,
The song “Heart Beats” by Hey Marseilles came on while my iPod was shuffling along last night. It was so good, instead of pulling into my driveway I made loops around my neighborhood so I could hear through twice through before calling it a night. Any song that good deserves a throwback thursday post.
What a fun evening it was hiding out in that bookstore making this video. I hope you enjoy it.

Christy & I love Colorado! One of the most amazing venues happens to be in our backyard, Red Rocks, and Jack Johnson will be there April 26th. “I Got You” is really a nice song to listen to any time of the day, but especially at sunset on a Monday which is what I’m doing right now.
Sometimes commentary is offered on Spotify which is fun to listen to. Here’s what Jack Johnson thinks about this song “…You can enjoy anything as long as you have the right person by your side and that was the sentiment of I Got You, it’s just with the ups and downs that life brings. As long as you have someone you love, it makes it a lot easier…”
I was supposed to do great things
I know the road was long
But I wasn’t raised to shoot for fame
I had the safety on
I cut my ties, I sold my rings
I wanted none of this
If you start from scratch you have to sing
Just for the fun of it
I cut some serious ties this week…The only thing to do is follow the cold war kids advice, and start singing just for the fun of it. I hope you’ll join me.
I LOVE to imagine how various songs would fit into a movie. This is one of them. Coney Island by Good Old War is the kind of song I think would fit into a scene of the movie where two friends give up on trying to do the right thing. Instead they ditch school and sneak into a small amusement park, eat lots of funnel cake, and get lost in a maze of mirrors. Maybe the scene sounds a little cliche but that’s ok.
As we were shooting this yesterday, there was a bus driver on the lot walking towards his bus. As he got closer, we stopped shooting and he just looked at us and said, “I guess it’s a beautiful day to be alive,” and kept on walking. We hope you love this song as much as we do, and we dare you not to listen to it on repeat and dance along.
Bleachers is the side project of FUN’s Jack Antonoff, and luckily you can expect a full-length record this spring. In the meantime, enjoy this perfect anthem with us–and lets all get better….better….better…better.
Ten years ago today my husband and I became official at a Chipotle by the Beverly Center in West LA, that is boyfriend & girlfriend. A lot has changed since then. We now live in Colorado, have a son who we’re madly in love with and well, we’re a little older. Today is a special day!
Happy Valentine’s Day! ❤ m.
Well, of course I miss you baby
I’ve been thinking lately
That you don’t need me anymore
You’d be better with Fred Astaire
He could take you anywhere
If you ask him to
Such a sad, but upbeat pop song! The lead singer is basically saying, “You should be with this other guy, because he’s so talented and cool.” But I’ve found we don’t always chose who we fall for. Even if the other guy is Fred Astaire, he’s not you, and you are the one for me…..
