James Blake performs “Retrograde” in Danmarks Indsamlingen church.

This is definitely something I would have like to have attended.

"Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want" 

Originally by The Smiths, performed here by their former lead singer and largest legend, MORRISSEY.

Good times for a change 

See, the luck I’ve had 
Can make a good man 
Turn bad 

So please please please 
Let me, let me, let me 
Let me get what I want 
This time 

Haven’t had a dream in a long time 
See, the life I’ve had 
Can make a good man bad 

So for once in my life 
Let me get what I want 
Lord knows, it would be the first time 
Lord knows, it would be the first time

Before I Die by Candy Chang
“It’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day and forget what really matters to you. When I lost someone I loved very much, I thought about death a lot. This helped clarify my life, the people I want to be with, and the things I want to do, but I struggled to maintain perspective. I wondered if other people felt the same way. So with help from old and new friends, I painted the side of an abandoned house in my neighborhood in New Orleans with chalkboard paint and stenciled it with a grid of the sentence “Before I die I want to _______.” Anyone walking by could pick up a piece of chalk, reflect on their lives, and share their personal aspirations in public space.
It was all an experiment and I didn’t know what to expect. By the next day the wall was entirely filled out and it kept growing: Before I die I want to… sing for millions, hold her one more time, eat a salad with an alien, see my daughter graduate, abandon all insecurities, plant a tree, straddle the International Date Line, get clean, live off the grid, build a school, be someone’s cavalry, be completely myself…  People’s responses made me laugh out loud and tear up. They consoled during my own tough times. This neglected space became a constructive one for contemplation and reflection. It’s about remembering what matters most to you as you grow and change. It’s about getting to know the people around you in new and enlightening ways. It’s about creating public spaces that help us see we are not alone in our struggles towards leading personally meaningful lives.”

i wish i could stop posting about ellie goulding.

just watch all of this. 

i’ve also rediscovered this song on an old ipod, and i have to say, it’s found another spot in my heart. 

i can’t remember who darren criss is but i think he’s from some music competition show. i don’t think he’s done anything really… this is usually where i’d google to find out more, but i have to say, about this man, i care very little. 

this is a gayly good song though. 

"Teenage Dream" cover by Darren Criss, originally by Katy Perry.
