Hello, how are you? It’s so typical of me to talk about myself, I’m sorry…Last week, I had my post published by about 10 pm on Wednesday; this week, we’re definitely well into Thursday afternoon. Siiiggh, c’est la freakin’ vie! I feel like Wait And Scene Whenever-I-get-around-to-posting doesn’t quite have the same ring to it. This WAS Wednesday title is staying and you’re going to have to deal with the fact that some weeks ya’ girl just doesn’t have the Tuesday night time. Why so busy? Well, don’t feel too sorry for me but I’ve been putting in lots of extra hours to get my work done so I can peace out to California for the next five days. Yes, I just got back from nearly a month in Cali in early January. No, I’m not sick of sunshine and beach vibes. Yes, I will most definitely be eating copious amounts of tacos, frolicking on the beach, and thrift shopping with the stars. I’ll be sure to update you on the celeb “cool teens” who look like they’re thirty that I run into while bartering for ALL OF THE JORTS at my fav LA Flea Market. Last month @Jortsmanship took note of my stellar Jortsmanship and commented on my Insta’ photo so that’s all you could really ask for in this life.
This week’s jams are best enjoyed in a pair of your finest cut-off jeans; bonus points and extra playlist enjoyment if you’re rocking denim-on-denim in a very classy, Americanized version of the Canadian tuxedo like my dude Chuck.

P.s. There was another new FLUME track this week and it is reaaalll nice if you haven’t heard it yet. Also, I checked and Kučka is not the girl from NAO even though they sound identical. WOW.
I just got home from working nearly 13 hours so I’m not feeling particularly chatty but this was a great week in new tuneage so here I am on a Wednesday night, about to tell you a story and post another solid playlist. All for the love of music!
As most of you know, I have a pretty fun “real job” working with hilarious kid-lets. Well today, the BEST thing happened at our morning teaming meeting; I was handed a new referral for a nugget who has the same name of one of my favorite rappers, like, his real birth certificate name is that of a popular hip hop artist. For privacy/HIPAA’s sake, let’s call him DJ Khaled. Note: this is not his name and Khaled is not one of my favorite rappers but this little nickname will make my story-telling easier. Since this morning, all I’ve been thinking about is how fun the addition of a munchkin with a rapper’s name is going to make my job.
Where’s Jenna? Oh she’s at DJ Khaled’s ’til 3.
Whoaaaa, you clearly need to monitor DJ Khaled’s sugar intake.
Busy, busy day of appointments. Brian at noon, Steven at 1, and DJ Khaled at 2.
I heard DJ Khaled was a real little jerk this week.
Hi there, can I please speak with DJ Khaled’s mom or dad?
This is going to be reaaaaaaal entertaining. It’s one of the greatest work related wins so far in 2016. Very KEY to my laughter and happiness.
These Wednesday playlists are also very key to my week so, in the words of a very wise DJ, “They don’t want you to jet ski”. Whoops, wrong quote. I meant to say, “Annnnoooother one.”
There were a lot of great releases this week but, to be honest, I am still bumping last Wednesday’s playlist with some of these new tracks peppered in. Yeah, I rock to my own playlists and say things like, “Dammmn, this is a fire mix. Who’s the genius who put these bangerzzz together?” The basey beats and “drops” in a number of last week’s tracks are sounding noooice on my brand-spankin’-new Bose® speaker. LIFESTYLE FLEX ALERT!!
Can you imagine being a legit, I-make-a-living-off-of-blogging blogger straight bragging about everything you own and saying stupid sheeeit to get free swag and all-inclusive vacations?
This Bose® speaker is rad but how will I ever listen to tunes outside of my baller crib? Oh, you make wireless headphones? Peeerrrf, send me a pair and I’ll absolutely post a cozy-girl selfie of me listening to music while longingly staring at my latte art.
Pshhh, you call that blob of radioactive sugar a macaroon? Fly me to Paris’ Les Marquis de Ladurée and I’ll show you what’s up.
*Throwing a churro back in a Disney employee’s face* What is this dusty cinnamon log you’re trying to feed me? Garbage! That’s certainly not what Chocolateria San Gines in Madrid is serving con chocolate. Americans, am I right?
She’s cold as ice, folks. It’s obvious that if blogging fame was my reality I would be a chunky beeotch with no fixed address y’all would hate. You should be thankful I only run a mediocre blog that my friends, family, and a few blokes in Australia and the UK read. Instead of constantly globetrotting and gaining mad lbs, I’m planted here in Oregon bringing you another ten tracks I thought were pretty chill this week.
I was supes lame this past weekend and stayed in everyday catching up on paperwork and snapping out of my Cali vacation mode. My pile of work, coupled with a lack of sunshine and groceries, was a harsh reality. I was sustaining myself on a diet of apples, frozen berries, and herbal tea because I refuse to go shopping when I’m in beast mode. Good news is that I’m straight thriving now and during these trying times laying low, I was able to discover all of la musique unknown. No jokes, the majority of the artists on this playlist only have a couple hundred followers on their Facebook fan pages and one artist even linked his personal FB from his Soundcloud hahaha like, you’d have to friend request him if you wanted to follow his music. Best ever. Could you imagine the days when Kanye Omari West’s fan page was all up in the FB feed of a couple hundred of his Chi city homies pissing them off to no end with his arrogance? A time when Aubrey Graham’s 416 woes were like, “I dunno, man, wheelchair Jimmy is just too Canadian to be a legit rapper but sure, I’ll throw *air quotes* “Drake” a follow just to be nice.”?
She says they miss the old Drake. Girl, don’t tempt me.
I CAN’T…EVEN, as the basics would say. Anyway, there is a lot of gold on this week’s ‘list so you should give the artists you like a follow and start spreading the news; You seem like quality humans and they could clearly use the “friends”.
Get into it,
P.s. Did anyone else have ‘Ye’s ‘Real Friends & No More Parties in LA’ on a rotation this weekend? Or does it just speak to me because it’s my current reality? Byeeeee LA.
New year, new blog post, more new music, and the same old weirdo bringing it all to you. I hope you had a wonderful holiday and missed me during my fortnight off gallivanting around California. I love the golden state with all of its sunny beaches, beautiful humans, celebs, amazing shopping, colorful sunsets, Disneyland magic, cheap tacos, and TRAFFIC. ALL OF THE TRAFFIC. EVERY DAMN DAY. ALL DAY LONG. Even talking about it stresses me out and I wasn’t driving slash slept through most of it and woke up when we reached our destinations hours later. Shout outs to my chauffeurs for keeping it 1hunid!. Anyways, I’m rested (thanks to a myriad of car naps) and I’m feeling happy back home in my fav the beaver state. I’m excited to bring you a new playlist of ten tracks I’ve liked this past week…or maybe three weeks, whatever, who’s counting? She’s back, folks.
P.s. The first track on this playlist isn’t new but by now you should know I’m really into NoMBe and it seemed fitting with my past two weeks in Cali. Plus, the very end of that track…Daaaaang. Repeat.
To be honest, she’s a liar full of promise
She thinks her Rolex makes her timeless
Her famous friends think she’s harmless
I’d burn the bridge with her on it
P.p.s. Total tangent but did you know that the original voices of Mickey and Minnie Mouse were married in real life? If that doesn’t make you happy, you’re officially a lost cause. Feel free to use that fact to impress someone at the next party; You can thank me when you score the digits like, “Hey guuuurl, you like Disney facts?” Not at all creepy.
