Music I Like in the Real World: September 7

I just realized I haven’t done one of these since last December. Almost a year, crazy! Well the other day when I was moving back to San Diego I heard a couple of my favorite songs in unexpected places.

While eating at Denny’s with my friends after driving for two hours and unloading most of my stuff, I began to hear “Stuck on Repeat” by Little Boots playing in the background. I wasn’t sure of what I was hearing so I listened hard and it was. Needless to say, I was very excited!

Then I was watching the CW (remember the days of the WB?), when a commercial for the Vampire Diaries came on and “Hang You from the Heavens” was on it. The song doesn’t really make me think of vampires on its own, but now that it’s been associated with it might.

Current Obsession: Ace of Cakes

I’ve recently become addicted to cable TV shows involving cakes, mostly on the Food Network. I briefly considered dropping out of college in hopes of working in shops like these until I thought about it more and realized these people actually have artistic talent, which is why the cakes look so amazing! Most, if not all, of my dreams are crushed at the realization I am not artistically gifted. At least watching these shows makes me appreciate these pastry chefs. Oh yeah I want a cake from one of these places at some point in my life. This point is probably not in the near future because I imagine they cost lots and lots of money.

Guess who’s song is featured in an AT&T commercial? No other than New Young Pony Club! The song is called “The Bomb”.


I just realized this blog seems to be transforming into “Name that Song on that Commercial”.

The other day after hearing my new favorite songs, “No You Girls” by Franz Ferdinand on the Hills, I was talking to my roommate while commercials were on when “Meddle” by Little Boots came on on a Victoria’s Secret Commercial.

Children at Dairy Queen (1957), originally uploaded by dogwelder.

Last night one of my roommates and I were being lazy, unproductive college students and sitting in our living room watching America’s Next Top Model, the beginning of 90210, the end of Rush Hour 2, and all of Make Me a Super Model. Some of our observations included: alot of the girls on this season of ANTM look like the ones in other seasons and Jackie Chan doesn’t seem to know what is going on during the bloopers.
Well, somewhere in between all these shows we realized we were getting hungry. Then a Dairy Queen commercial came on talking about the new specials they were offering. It was at that moment that we were both persuaded to go to Dairy Queen. Unfortunately, out of the four roommates, we’re the two that don’t have cars. Grreeaatt. So we calmed our hunger by eating Tostitos, but after seeing the delicious things available at Dairy Queen we really really wanted to go.
My immediate roommate got home and I told her that if she took us to Dairy Queen, I would buy her something. Then we embarked on a quest to find the nearest Dairy Queen to us. Lazy college students that we are, we did not get up to go to our computers to look one up. I did it on my blackberry and my roommate did it on her iPhone. After 15 minutes of trying she finally found all the Dairy Queens within a 50 mile radius. Yes we were willing to go that far. We proceeded to call all their numbers only to find that they closed (mostly at 9 and it was already 11). We quenched our hunger for the deliciousness that escaped us by 2 hours with cookies and oranges.
I think we might go today … at least I hope so.
