Earworm: “Ghost” by Sir Sly
It’s back. I’m back. Baby got back. It seems as if I’d taken a year of hiatus from consistently posting on here, and it’s time I got myself back on the scene. My music library has grown, and my ear health has dwindled. Greatly. To rest my ears, I’ve taken to listening to softer music for the summer. One of my favorite songs as of late is a very calming one by Sir Sly, an indie pop band out of Los Angeles, California. Indie pop from out west has been taking over my playlist ever so slowly since Foster the People and The Neighbourhood made it to my ear drums.
And even better is the live version…
Hey, look who’s FINALLY posting!
It’s been a while, but The Big Cheese and I both figured it was a fitting time to post. We all know we’re thankful that I’m back, am I right?
*cue laugh track*
On behalf of everyone here at JustWroteABlog and NekkedSnake.wordpress.com, we’d like to ask you to watch this video.
(As well as have a wonderful, Happy Thanksgiving weekend. Safe shopping, fun partying, best wishes.)
Earworm: Beethoven’s “Fifth Symphony” (NSFW)
Classical music puts me to sleep. It’s relaxing, it’s solid, it’s just what it is. Classic.
Twerking however…………. Twerking. It’s fantastic. Sometimes it can be what we kids today call “ratchet” but other times it can be classy.
I have no words.
Ladies and gentlemen, watch this when you can do it shamelessly. ClASSical performance right here.
Earworm: “Changing of the Seasons” by Two Door Cinema Club
In honor of the release of their new EP, I’m going to give you all a heads up on the first song to be released off their upcoming album. This song has been out for a few months now, but damn, it’s still good, and the two (or three, depending on your region) songs that released on the EP titled after the first single aren’t slacking either.
The titular track is the bee’s knees. Yeah. It’s that good to me that I had to use some retro lingo to describe how much I fucking liked it.
Have a listen to this track.
Oh, and enjoy the video, I did. It makes zero sense. I love it when things make no sense.
Earworm: “Kids” by Two Door Cinema Club
Seldom heard songs always make me happy. Being as I’ve only been comprehensively browsing the internet for, oh, say, four years of my life, I’m bound to have missed some gems from my favorite bands since they were probably making music way before I could understand what the internet even entailed.
Two Door Cinema Club made its fame through myspace, yeah, remember myspace? Timberlake’s social networking platform. Yeah.
Two Door Cinema Club dropped EPs on that site back when it was relevant, and have yet to rerelease some of the songs. I do believe three of the five songs from their first EP made their debut album, Tourist History, but the one song that I listen to over and over again happens to be Kids, a song that is credited to be on the Tourist History tracklist for the Japanese release.
No. No, no. I’m completely drunk off of this amount of stupidity.
You think celebrities are stupid? No. Think again.
Regular friggin Americans. Holy crap.
Bridezillas is a show that airs on We, and it’s quite possibly the only the show that has ever made me completely shit faced from dumbassery in a one hour time period.
I can’t explain how, but I honestly feel as if I’m never going to recover from that.
Please, please watch Bridezillas responsibly, this is a public service announcement.

Earworm: “Flaws” by Bastille
You all know my weak heart for indie rock.
And we all know how much I love the UK. And having recently rediscovered Bastille through YouTube of all places, I figured I’d share this with you all.
I’ve had Bastille’s debut album Bad Blood sitting in my music folder for the longest time, my friends had recommended them to me and I downloaded their album without even thinking about if I would like their music or not. This is one of the greatest leaps of faith ever, because lo and behold, I love their music. They’re a high quality four man group, and Dan Smith’s vocals definitely throw it over the edge.
And his hair? DAMN HIS HAIR IS AWESOME. (This lil bit about hair is a little joke at The Big Cheese and my other cousins who mock me and my “One Direction” hair. By the way, my gravitar is inaccurate to my face, now. I should change that.)
Bastille is great, listen to the entire album Bad Blood. Look up their acoustic sessions on YouTube. Find their Abbey Road sessions, too. It’s incredible. The violins and the vocals it’s just heavenly.
Acoustic Live in Paris:
Thank You, Friends
That’s right. I went there, we’re… Friends. And I’m so glad to be able to share this moment of reflection with you all, because The Big Cheese (and of course, NekkedSnake) and I have turned ONE on WordPress. That’s right. We’ve been throwing useless babble, rants, and bad music at you lot for just over a year now.
And we’re all genuinely sorry for slowing down. But we’re getting old-for Pete’s sake, we’re one!-and we try our best to cover what interests us.
Incredibly, we’ve kept such a solid basis of readers after only doing this according to what tickles our fancies. Thankfully several thousand of you share the same fancies!
In the course of the year, we’ve spread word of songs that were unheard of until shortly after we spoke of such (Gangnam Style and Thrift Shop), blamed HTC and Verizon and Samsung for the world’s problems, and updated the bunch of you with great songs and tech news.
So from all of us here at JWAB, thank you!!!! Keep supporting us and we’ll make it our mission to pleasure ourselv-I mean, keep you informed- with what goes on. Stay awesome!
Don’t forget, by the way. Our blog is
And remember our premise.
