1. Scrotal Recall is a pretty great British show, but, really, that title, why? 

2. Why are you smoking? It’s 2015! Put that shit down. Step away from the vapor. Be cool. Live longer. Get rid of that lung hacking. Take control of your own life! Stop smoking 3 packs a day/a cig a day/weird white shit/whatever else it is you’re doing. Or not. I’m just trying to help! Sorry!

3. Stop telling me about all your hilarious “snaps”! I don’t need this technology! UGH. It’s not my fault all my electronics are ancient! Great. Now I’ll never know what you’re all up to.

4. Don’t go back(wards).

5. Update! I tried Snapchat again! And I accidentally opened all of my “snaps” at once and therefore did not see a single one of them! Ooops. Forget it! I’m terrible at this. Never mind! Continue having fun without me.

6. Don’t be afraid of your own words.

7. Sooo, Horns is the strangest/weirdest/best/worst/most intense/most terrifying/creepiest movie I’ve seen ever in my entire life! I don’t know if that’s a recommendation to see it, but, I also don’t feel like those two long hours were entirely wasted! You decide. Also contains Daniel Radcliffe w/American accent, if that’s not interesting enough.

8. All my babies are graduating! And by that I mean young friends, not actual babies. I’m not that old! Oh god! Am I?

9. America. How have you not stopped in your tracks and thought to yourself, “Holy shit, why don’t we let people who love each other get married?” I have! Lots of people have! What are you doing? Aren’t we supposed to be a great country? How simple is this problem to solve? Pretty simple. Ireland did it! Ireland! 

10. Love people much more than you hate anything.

When I was 18 I went to my first concert ever. It was at this old church in Detroit that had been converted into a concert venue. I went with my friend and it was the coolest thing I had ever done and I immediately fell in love with live music. Who did I see that night? None other than the lovely man with a lovely voice:

Paolo Nutini

You might have heard of him – he has this one song, “New Shoes” that is in like 500 different movies and commercials. But, he’s more than that. His lovely scottish voice can be heard on two albums – and, yay, he’s making a third! Hopefully he comes back to the USA soon so I can again stand in the front row directly in front of him and the speakers and become temporarily deaf. Ah, the fond memories.

Now, on to the music!

When listening to this song I like to pretend he’s singing to me.

The lyrics in this are beautiful:

“And the children all smile as the boats suffle by them
Trying to pretend that they’ve got some space”

One more! Here’s a newer song.

 

Paolo’s music is the kind that will never go out of style, and you’ll never get tired of listening to. His lyrics are fantastic and his voice is unique and beautiful. Don’t you think?

 

Happy Monday!

 

Get you some pretty Paolo music here.
