What's in your refrigerator right now?


A cold dish of spaghetti, some of my roomie's junk food (pizza, cans of Dr. Pepper, noodles, etc. etc. ... the usual tasty college menu), and a dish of tabbouleh. Like... a BIG dish of tabbouleh.

I swear tabbouleh is like a drug to me-- can't get enough of that delicious shit. Good thing it's healthy!

Besides that, alas, the sad reality is that the fridge is pretty empty.

So, I've realized lately that big band/swing music tends to curb my depressive moods. I feel stupid for not getting into this earlier, srsly.

This is far from an earth-shattering revelation (I'm sure people know that good music= positively helps mood), but sometimes obvious things can strike me as just freakin' amazing. It's a discovery that I'm thankful to have found, at least.


Plus, these guys were hardcore. Look at the guy playing the xylophone (he is god-like at 1:40 til 2:02)! Look at the drummer at 1:48! Holy crap, I don't think it's even healthy to drum that fast.




Count Basie. Lord, he's too awesome.



Nat King Cole. WHAM BAM ALAKAZAM! I LOVE IT.





I'm normally not a romantic sort of person, but... "Stardust" is so dreamy. I can just see a bunch of stylishly-dressed people sipping drinks and flirting while this music plays in the background... circa 1938, in some night club filled with cigarette smoke.
