Favorite Friday Favorites #130

1. The David Mayfield Parade-


I know that I've posted about this band before, but every time I come across them in my music stash I end up listening to nothing but this band for two weeks in a row. They're just so good! I really hope to catch them again when they come through Denver in September!

Favorite Friday* Favorites #129

*This didn't go up on Friday. I received some bad news at the end of this week & combined with the general scary-sad state of the world, I haven't felt much like listing favorite songs, arts, films or websites. But as I was lying in bed this morning, I thought that the world needs more people promoting what they love instead of constantly bashing what they hate. In general, I try to be an unabashed life enthusiast. Now, I'm under no delusion that by keeping a sunny disposition or that by writing my little blog with a small number of readers (Hi, by the way. You're the tops.) I'm changing the world. But it's a light, albeit a tiny one. A bright spot in a whole lot of darkness that all too often feels suffocating. I'm going to try to stick with that, despite the twists, turns & hardships life often throws at us. Because, at the end of the day, I'd like to believe that there's more good in this world than bad. Maybe that makes me sound like a naive idiot. I'm okay with that, given the alternative. I hope you'll try to do the same. You don't even really have to try. Just try to try.

All that nonsense to say, I hope you'll forgive the lateness.

1. New Music-





2. 111 Archer Avenue Illustration-


Everything in this shop is beautiful, but this was one of my favorites!

3. Tanis Art- 


A couple of weeks ago, I shared one of my recent favorite podcasts, Tanis. This art just makes me happy & anxious all at the same time! I just love it! 





4. Consider This-

5. The Strange Women Society-


That's a club I want to be a part of!

- Some good tips on how to be confident! Fair warning; there is some language in this video, so be aware if little ears are hanging around! 
-I've been loving this vintage shop's Instagram account & their Etsy shop is just as lovely! RubyThreadsVintage's prices are fair & they have a nice range of sizes, given they're selling mostly vintage clothing. Check them out if you love vintage style & clothes worn by "real" models!
-This is big news, kids! If you binge-listened to the first season of 'Serial' like I did, you're going to be interested in this! 
-Imma need this hat come winter! 
- Five things that are harder than registering to vote! To find out hot to get registered in your state, look no further
-This gal put up tickets to one of her amazing dance parties this morning & they were sold out so quickly! I think I would love to go to one at some point in the very near future. Who wants to come with me?! You can see past parties here

Happy Friday, Friends!

1. New Music- 






2. Consider This-



3. I Just Love Me Some Bioshock Merch-

4. Tanis Podcast-


Tanis has quickly become one of my favorite podcasts. I'm still working my way through past episodes, but I feel pretty confident in recommending it to people. I will warn you; it is dark, so if you're not into horror, this one may not be for you. But if you love a good mystery, check out Tanis. 

And if I might suggest, go ahead & listen while taking a long walk out in a forest or green space. It will definitely add to the mood of the podcast!

5. Fight Like a Girl-


Since the first time I saw the '92 animated series & started collecting X-Men cards , Jubilee has been one of my favorite mutants! A print of Heather Mahler's illustration is definitely going on my to-be-purchased list!

- For my fellow Babysitters Club members! 
-If you're an artist & need a little inspiration
-This swimsuit is a dream! Pink isn't really my jam, but look at those carousel horses!

3. This Tank is the Tops-

4. The Art of Stephen Mackey-

5. This Graduation Speech-


Whether you're a recent graduate or just need some inspiration & laughs today, look no further than Lin-Manuel Miranda's commencement speech at University of Pennsylvania. It isn't as wonderfully poignant as his recent Tony acceptance speech, but it's a slow burn. Now, I know you'd probably rather do anything than watch a 15+ minute YouTube video, but trust me; this one is worth it. What can I say? I've got a thing for genuine artists who aren't afraid to encourage others to do what they love, despite the odds constantly screaming to do otherwise.  


More Links to Love-


-One more reason to sign up for your first 5k! 
-This story about a kitten & a biker will make your day better! Guaranteed! 
- Fight like a girl! 
-This list of authors & their rejection letters is super inspiring! 
-Black cats for the win!

3. Hamilton the Musical-


This may come as a shock to you, but I don't care for most musical theater. I can count the shows I love on one hand & the shows I've actually shelled out money to see on stage on just a few fingers, but damn, ya'll. 

Seriously.  

Imma need to see this show. Now, I'm not saying I'm going to sell my left kidney to get to New York to see it, but I'm not NOT saying that, either. I was listening to the the soundtrack in the car the other day & "It's Quiet Uptown" brought me to tears. Like full-on ugly crying. Be warned.


4. This Print Says it All-

5. I was Born in the Wrong Decade-

More Links to Love-


-I read this story about an 18 year old girl who had no one come to her birthday party. I'll be sending her a 19th birthday card this weekend. You can, too!
-Again, contrary to what this blog post shows, I'm not a serious broadway nut, but this is so choice! Watch to the end, you won't be sorry!
-This is a gang I want to be a part of!
-Fashion as art. Art as fashion.
-I'm a sucker for packaging & anything remotely connected to Wes Anderson. So, this basically has my name all over it!

Happy Friday, Friends!
