Fix These Streets

LA has the worst roads ever. Aside from congestion/horrible traffic, the streets are so full of potholes, it's horrible. I'm pretty sure my tire alignment is effed up from driving over numerous potholes a day. They are unavoidable.

Apparently it will cost $3 BILLION dollars to fix the streets of LA.

Songs to Jam Out To

I do miss my radio days, because it's fun being a DJ - you get to choose the music to play! Also, the station would get a ton of new cds (especially new music), so I learned about a bunch of bands I might otherwise not have heard of. Since no one listened to my internet show, it was even better because there was no pressure.
Anywho, here are some song picks:

Hey Ocean - If I Were a Ship

The song is catchy, the lead singer plays some cool instruments, and the song makes me feel like I should be floating in the sky over an island paradise with tropical birds flying over me.



Hey Mersailles - Heartbeats

This song is actually pretty sad, but it's "hauntingly beautiful." Those are my quotes. Boo yow. Plus I love that it starts soft, and then the drums kick in. I don't know if this is a song to really jam out to, but luckily it's not that sad sounding where you feel all mopey after listening to it.


Love Inks - Too Wild [I don't think that is an official video]


This song is more on the slower side, so maybe this is more of a swaying/head bobbing kind of song. When I hear this song, I feel like I should be playing in a field of wheat where me and my hippie/hipster friends are jumping and dancing in slow motion, while the sun is shining brightly in the bright blue cloudless sky. There will also be scenes of us blowing dandelions and bubbles, in slow motion of course.
