I’m commonly one of those jerks …
If you’ve uttered things like, “I have his first EP from ten years ago.”, “I was a fan of them when they were still called ____.”, or “I saw them at a small bar in North Dakota and they blew my face off.”; First of all, quit living my life and talking like me. Second, I think we could be friends. Third, you’re totally a music jerk too.
As you’ve probably noticed from past playlists, I’m into a wide range of music and I’m always hoping that there are at least one or two tracks each week that everyone can jam to. Within the last couple weeks, I’ve gotten really into Witch Trap a.k.a. songs with artist names and track lists written entirely in wingdings. I can hardly wait to meet someone new so I can answer the question, “What music are you into these days?” and watch this person, “Cool. Cool. Cool.” with shifty eyes and back away slowly. The reality of life is that being next level means sometimes freaking people out. Do not ĐΣSP∆IR, I’ve made PΣ∆CΣ with it.
This track list doesn’t include any of those Wicca beats but I’m am mixing it up for Wait And Scene Playlist 7 to allow you to listen some other less intense songs that I’ve discovered so far this year. They aren’t all new artists but they’re new to me in 2014 and I hope you’ll hear some things you like. A whole 20 track playlist with artists you may have heard of, but probably not!
Press play, wait ten seconds for the first track to start, and GΣ† DΣΣP IN MY ╫Σ▲D,
The increased prevalence of men with top knots in fashion and in the general public (at least in Portland) has really thrown me for a loop and has me all kinds of confused about my favorite famous guys. I don’t care if you’re Jake G, Harry S, Jared L, or any of the other celebrity man meat who have been ruining their babely vibes with this up-do; if you aren’t a sumo wrestler or this hairstyle isn’t a part of your cultural traditions, GET OUT OF HERE WITH THAT MAN BUN..and take your flowy linen suit and tambourine with you. I’m generalizing because Alexander of ‘Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros’ fame was the first time I saw a man blatantly rock this look in the media, outside of folk festival drum circles. A few years after Alexander’s hippie sashay into the public eye, I still blame this trend entirely on him.
Stylish girl looking at a cute guy at the coffee shop:
Solid choice in coffee ✓
Nice shoes/boots ✓
Quality jawnz ✓
Stylish shirt and well-tailored jacket ✓
A Handsome, often bearded face ✓
A messy man bun … hold up! Minus five check-marks for you, my dude.
Long hair, don’t care? Hmpfff neither do I until you chop off those luscious locks…but this week’s new music playlist is dedicated to you anyways because I heard you’re heading to the barber as soon as you finish listening.
I’ve been off work and stuck indoors for the past six days due to Oregon’s mad real snowpocalypse but I’m not complaining; I got to listen to music all day, watch documentaries, and get my life in order while wearing what ever the hell I wanted to. For the record, all my outfit choices were highly sus and at the cutting edge of comfort technology. Weekends are usually a prime time for ditching the pantaloons and living free of your work week staple (leg jail) but man, not having to wear your big girl/boy pants on a weekday is my definition of the good life. I’m easy to please!
“I’m glad to see you’re still fighting the good fight against the tyranny of pants.” -some actor in some crappy movie.
I present you with my ten favorite releases from my past pants-less week.
“Jenna, your site looks like crap on my computer.”
“Hmm strange, it looks good on mine. Send me a screen shot.”
“HOLD UP. YOU’RE USING IE!? PEOPLE USE IE!?”
It’s 2014 and I just found out that almost all of my friends use Internet Explorer as their primary browser at work. WHAAAAAAT? It’s kind of like that time last year when I found out that people were still using MSN Messenger to “chat”. Mind = BLOWN.
Sorry guys, Wait And Scene isn’t Internet Explorer compatible because well, it isn’t the late 90s. On a related note, if you’re having a hard time connecting to my SoundCloud, write me a letter or instant message me on ICQ and I’ll send you an 8-track or cassette tape version of my playlists.
I can’t be the only one who has noticed a resurgence high-wasted vintage jeans recently, especially among the hipster set. This will NEVER be my steeze, but you do you and I’ll do me … and I promise I’ll try not to laugh at the inevitable long butt ya’ll are rocking not too far below that crop top.
Shout outs to Kelly Kapowski and supermodels of years past for making basic girls think they can pull off this look in 2014.
If we can’t agree on fashion, I hope we can agree that some great music came out this past week. Enjoy the randomness of WAS Playlist 3!
