Lazy Sunday Morning Links Vol.10

The Sunday Morning Links return after a few weeks away. I’ll be honest, my motivation was just not what it needed to be to get the posts completed. Also, I very little content to share from being head down in work. Now, things have slowed down and I was able to go down a few rabbit holes. Below is what I found.

Video: Hard Times by Paramore | I have been listening to this new Paramore track way too much since it dropped on Thursday. Paramore has been a constant in my life since 2005. Songs from All We Know is Falling still have a spot on my running mixes. The new song is hit of 80s nostalgia mixed with mid-aughts pop-punk. My wheelhouse.

Lazy Sunday Morning Links Vol.5

 

Happy Sunday, everyone. Hope your week went as well as it could have. I am already beginning to lose track of the days after one month of this little project. Last week was easy. This week is hard. Prepping for baby is eating into my personal time. Why I know I should not be surprised, I still am. But, enough about my struggles. You’re here for links.

Let’s dive in, shall we?

Song:   Gravity by Jasmine Kara | Guilty pleasure time. This track has been on repeat for me since I discovered it a couple weeks ago. I love Swedish dance pop and this hits all the right marks. All the signs of a breakout summer song right here.

Lazy Sunday Morning Links Vol. 4

The last Sunday of February. How is it almost March already? The fourth volume of Lazy Sunday Morning Links and it is becoming easier to compile each time. Gotta love it!

I hope you find value in one of the items posted. As always, thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Song:  Strangers by Tritonal | While everyone is losing their mind over Zedd’s new track, I have been listening to the new Tritonal and chillin’. Piercing the Quiet was one of my favorite releases of 2011 and remains my favorite driving album, so any new Tritonal is great in my books. Now, if we could just get some new Above & Beyond…

Lazy Sunday Morning Links Vol. 3

Another week complete. The last seven days were a whirlwind one for Kyla and me, ending on a bit of a trying note. But, we will get through. We always do. This weekly feature was started to help me remember the positive points of the week. I hope you find something enjoyable as well.

Song:  Love by Lana Del Rey | I have no shame in sharing my love for Lana Del Rey. I own a shirt which is just her face (cover of Born to Die). On the 18th, she released a new single, Love. Excited to hear more new songs and all the remixes to follow.

Lazy Sunday Morning Links Vol.2

Welcome to the second installment of Sunday Morning Links. I made it two weeks – good job me!

Song / Album:  Love and Great Buildings from Zombies on Broadway by Andrew Mcmahon | Maybe it is a fact Something Corporate, and Jack’s Mannequin have played such an important part of my life, especially with Kyla, but whenever Andrew McMahon puts out new music, it gets pushed right to the top for me. While I would not call this his best release, it is a nice, upbeat, 38-minute distraction from the world.

Digital Survival Kit: 2017 Edition

Welcome to my digital survival kit for 2017. I’m pleasantly surprised to see many of the apps on my 2016 edition are carried over to the new year.digital survival 2017 (Last year is on my old  Tumblr. Yeah, I know. Let’s not? Okay? Ok.) A few apps and services I phased out either changed their purpose due to API alterations – Iconosquare – or were not the right fit and became chores – Habitica and Forest. What the following list covers are the day-to-day apps I use to run our house and daily life, not our business. For the full list of services we use to run the business, please head over to Kyla’s tools page.
An important part of my digital survival which is not an app or service is the layout of my home screen. I use this layout to keep the high use on the first page. Occasional use on the second page and rarely used on the third. One every page I only use the first two rows for apps or folders. The search function is used to find and open most apps. Quicker from the home screen than sliding through pages and folders.

Lazy Sunday Morning Links Vol.1

Starting a new feature this week I am calling Lazy Sunday Morning Links. I am using this to share my favorite finds of the previous seven days. The idea behind this series is to document the things that bring me joy throughout the year. The goal is to begin a routine of recording my finds before the little one is born in May. I hope items shared on these lists will provide you some enjoyment as they have for me.

Song: Ran from Future Islands | Future Islands released my favorite album of 2014, so to see new music from them in Spotify this week almost made my month on day one.  It is like an old friend calling out of the blue. 2017 is shaping up to be a benchmark year for music.

End of the Line: Music for a forgettable year

Music has always been one of my best tools for reflection. Last year I brought back the end of year playlist. I started to use Spotify shortly after we visited Stockholm in May 2015 and assembled my first year in review playlist in many years last December. Back in the mid-2000s, I would make CDs for my family and friends to give away at Christmas, and it was a great exercise. I was quite happy to have it return.

Then, 2016 happened

I think we all agree that 2016 was a shitty year. But for now, I leave you with my 2016 as told through song. Continue reading “End of the Line: Music for a forgettable year”
