If You Noticed...

Apologies for my absence last week. I was bedside to someone very dear to me last week in hospice care. I love doing my radio show and playing great music of my choosing every week, but family comes first.

Last week was hard and strange. For the first time in my life I watched someone I love die. I keep replaying her last breath in my head. She went peacefully, yet the image, the moment keeps replaying in my mind. Being by someone's bedside as they past is definitely not for the weak of heart. You'll never be able to erase the sounds or the images from your mind.

But I'm back! This week I decided to play music that makes me happy and makes me want to dance despite being down. New music from St. Vincent and Twin Sister. I think I'll even remember to put up the podcast link today! You lucky kids you! The playlist:

Sea Wolf - You're A Wolf
Grizzly Bear - Two Weeks
Twin Sister - Bad Street
Arctic Monkeys - Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor
St. Vincent - Year of the Tiger

I can't believe the summer is almost over. It feels like just the other day I was complaining about wedding season being here and now in a week and a half I'll be starting school again. And of course I didn't finish any of my summer goals.

I fretted all summer about making ends meet,  by the time I felt financially secure to do something, summer is/was almost over. These next two weekends I have before school work gets piled on I will use to work on some side projects, this blog included.

As mentioned on the show I just came back home from visiting my boyfriend in NorCal. It was almost depressing to return home. LA now feels dirty and lonely to me. Everyone has moved away and I am desperate to get out and join them. I've lived in LA my whole life and I am ready to leave it and find something new.

I keep telling myself one more year...hopefully. But with the walls I've ran into just dealing with my school it may take longer. At this point I'm willing to just transfer out just to get out of LA. Enough of the whining. Here's this week's playlist:

Blood Orange - Sutphin Boulevard
M83 - Midnight City
St. Vincent - Surgeon
Miike Snow - Song For No One
Talking Heads - Uh Oh, Love Comes To Town
Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Date With The Night
Hot Chip - Transmission
Charlotte Gainsbourg - Voyage
Empire of the Sun - Walking On A Dream
Queen - Another One Bites The Dust
Sia - You've Changed
The Drums - Money
Kele - On The Lam
Feist - My Moon My Man
Elliot Smith - Happiness

Dance Dance Dance!!

A special dance mix dedicated to my mother.

Last year my mother was diagnose with stage 4 colon cancer. The doctors were skepitcal since it was so far advance, but with prayers and a willingness to survive my mother fought it and is now living cancer free! It's crazy to think just last year my family was facing the possibility of my mother not being here, but we were giving one more year. As with everyday I try to enjoy it. I try to take pleasure from the smallest things. So cliche I know. I hate cliches, but it's so true. Love life. Love pain. Love yourself and things are bound to turn around. And if that doesn't work then fuck it and dance!!!
